  1. when the new boards come out, im just going to switch it out with the single core that I have now... maybe sell mine for $50 on ebay or something... take a $19 loss
  2. after installing this kext, my ps2 keyboard does not work anymore
  3. All my stuff is working except 1) sleep 2) printing (i dont think its related to the install, just windows failing to connect to os x) Questions... 1) how can I dual-boot w/ ubuntu if OS X is already installed? 2) where is a good FREE word processor that runs fast on this machine? I find that open office aqua and neo office severely lag w/ internet open!!!
  4. Has anyone tried adding bluetooth?
  5. actually it said "checking for consistency" now that i started it a second time i burned it with no errors, so i just skipped it this time. ok, even though i skipped it it says "Install Failed Mac OS X could not be installed on your computer The Installer could not validate the contents of the 'BaseSystem' package. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance. Click Restart to restart your computer and try install again." Just to be clear, how are we supposed to format the drive? Under Format: it has Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and I did set it as MBR under options. That's the only thing I think could be wrong. I dunno.
  6. what exactly is it doing when it says "verifying disc contents" or something like that once you press install? because it said install failed during that, something about not being able to verify "basecontents".... can I just skip this process?
  7. Have you dual-booted? If so, what guide did you follow (if any at all)?
  8. What do you guys think will run faster & smoother on this machine, OS X or Ubuntu? I'm definitely going to install OS X, but I was thinking of dual-booting Ubuntu.
  9. Aw, I already ordered! Oh, well. For $283, I got 2GB RAM, 160GB HDD, mini-ITX case w/ 250W PSU (that one has ATX), and the ability to return the RAM or motherboard in-store because I bought them at Fry's. I hate having to return RAM or mobo by shipping it. It's a big hassle, and to me just buying those 2 parts in store is probably worth $83.
  10. Oh, I misunderstood. I thought by partition he meant into more than once piece. I might install XP later on. I haven't gotten the parts yet, so I was just asking some curious questions that I had from reading the directions and seeing the files.

  12. 1. Why do I need to partition the drive? And into how many pieces of what size? (for 10.5.2) 2. For the Combo Update, how do I install it? They are .pkg files. 3. The 10.5.2 Kalyway came with a folder that says "ADD_KEXT_TO_DVD" and then has some stuff in there. Do I need to bother with it? Or can I just burn the img? Thanks, sorry for the questions, I am new to mac & hackintosh.
  13. So do you guys think this is a computer worth the money, or should I just get a lil' more and go for a core 2 duo. I'm really worried about the performance. How fast does the computer boot?
  14. How did you get it to $248? Here's my list: LITE-ON iHAS120-04 $23.99 Intel BOXD945GCLF Intel Atom processor 230 Intel 945GC Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo - Retail $69.99 APEX MI-100 CASE + POWER SUPPLY 55.99 Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM $41.99 Kingston 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory - Retail $35 ASUS WL-138g V2 IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Wireless Adapter Up to 54Mbps Data Rates 64/128-bit WEP WPA2 (including 802.1x, TKIP, AES) - Retail - $22.99 I bought the motherboard and RAM in store so there's no shipping on those - only tax (total: $113). When I put the other 4 items into my cart at newegg, I get a grand total of $170.95, which comes up to $283 total for the project.
