  1. Thanks, [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] did the trick. I only needed the -x flag by the way. Otherwise the language selection screen would stay gray....
  2. Hi all, I recently bought a Acer Aspire M7811. This is a Core i7 based platform. Specs are as follows: Intel Core i7 860 Intel H57 express chipset 6GB DDR3 memory 1.5TB Ecodrive HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT320 1GB DDR3 I am convinced it should work, but please correct me if this is not a configuration that could work. So far I have read throug many topics, but none have helped me so far. What I did up to now: Downloaded and burned Empire EFI for the Core i7 1.085 Booted Empire EFI, switched the DVD with the snow leopard install DVD (the original upgrade DVD) During booting snow leo, it rebooted; tried with -v; after a lot of reboots noticed it reboots after the line "starting Mac OSX". Then I discovered in the threads to use the following boot params: "cpus=2 busratio=21", which also did help me... So I don't know what is wrong and why it reboots. please help me solving this issue.
  3. how does one edit a photo like this?

    you could also shoot with an analog camera with an expired film at a low F number
  4. Yamael on dA

    very nice theme! well done!
  5. Best software for manipulating photos

    If you want opensource/freeware I would suggest the combination RawTherapee with Gimp. RawTherapee is used to import your RAW photos and do the basic color/exposure adjustments and Gimp for the real editing. Otherwise go for the combination Lightroom with Photoshop. I actually like this combo the best as Lightroom is more stable than RawTherapee and Photoshop has some better features...
  6. Digital camera suggestion

    I totally agree. Even without shaky hands it is very difficult to make a sharp photo in low light conditions. I would really suggest to buy a tripod and remote control. The remote control is actully optional as you can also use the self timer, but then you need to wait ten seconds just for it to take a picture. If you would like to shoot in lowlight without a tripod I would suggest a DSLR with a VERY good lens. This would most probably be a lens with a fixed length (so no zoom) and an aperature of like 1.x. Both canon and nikon have very good fixed length lenses.
  7. X700 and other PCIE ATI Radeon finally work

    No luck for me I have a X700 (5E4F), but i patched it with version 0.2 of the patcher and by hand. After using the patcher the system showed hung and showed a screen telling me to reboot the system. After changing the ATIRadeon9700 file in the directory /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon9700.kext/Contents/MacOS by hand the system did startup. But after the startup screen the screen changed in a colory screen with only a mouse pointer. So my question is whether anyone has managed to get a X700 (pci-express) with device ID 5E4F working. I am running 10.4.4 at the moment and also used the 10.4.4 driver.
