  1. Care to share where on the internet you found it? I'll be working on one of these soon and playing with a Precision 690 also and I could sure use any info. Which installer? Thanks!
  2. I used the 10.5.3 combo update and then the 10.5.4 updater and everything seems to be working great - Thanks Mysticus and all!! dastrom Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16 ghz Intel Badaxe2 D975XBX2KR motherboard 200 GB sata hd x2 2GB Ram Nvidia TC6200 video card DVD-RW
  3. Osx86 10.5.2 on Dell Latitude X300

    I installed on my X300 and from what I remember I had to disable the ethernet in bios first so it would boot and change something in the networking kext before I enabled it again. Sorry I cant help more but it was a while ago - worked fine but no qe or ci graphics. Still worked great though. dastrom
  4. Check this thread - I think my post is #43 http://smallurl.co.uk/?2437 In my system I used the Kalway 10.5.1 install disk and Kalyway 10.5.2 updater. Have not tried to update to 10.5.3 yet. I used a sata hard drive, sata dvd-rw, and usb keyboard and mouse. I think the install dvd wouldn't work with a pata dvd drive (pata drive is supposed to work fine after install) there was some glitch with the chipset. I had to try a few video cards - I had one that acted kind of flakey so if you have trouble installing try not making any selections for the video card. You won't have qe/ci then but you can figure that out later. Follow the directions in the post. Installed well for me but took me two full days of messing with it to find the right settings and get it installed. Now it would be easy. My system works like a champ and I didn't have to touch the terminal once. Good luck! Let me know how it goes. dastrom
  5. BadAxe2 Install problem

    I suspect the problem may be the ide dvd drive. I seemed to remember something about having to use a sata dvd drive for the install to work because of the chipset on the badaxe. I used the Kalyway 10.5.1 disk and then Kalyways 10.5.2 updater. I used default bios settings and then changed the following: Core Multiplexing Technology <Enable> Advanced Peripheral Config Secondary SATA Controller <disabled> Drive Config Config SATA as <AHCI> Performance Bus Overrides HPET <enable> Security XD Tech <enable> VT Tech <disable> Power ACPI Susp State <S1 State> I think that is all I changed. The DVD I used is KALYWAY LEOPARD 10.5.1 intel SSE2 and SSE3 dated 12/20/07. I think there are other older and newer dvds but this is the one I had success with. I'm not sure if the one you used is the same one but I'd download the one above if not. The differences between our setups are: PATA dvd drive - I have all sata - hard drive and dvd drive I have a 6200TC video card I have USB keyboard and mouse - not sure what you have Heres what I did - using 10.5.1 DVD (KALYWAY LEOPARD 10.5.1 intel SSE2 and SSE3). Partitioned as one partition as mbr (NOT GUID) and only selected EFI vanilla kernel, NVinject desktop, efi MBR bootloader (since partitioned as mbr - you have to select mbr bootloader too) but no audio selected. After installation patched sound using patcher from weaksauce12's package: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=76014 then audio worked. I think what I would do to start is do the same selections but select nothing for the video either. You won't have qe/ci but you can see if the video card is the problem. If you can boot up osx then I would reinstall, partitioning again (not just erase) and try different selections in the video category to find one that works for your video card. Hope this helps - I know how frustrating it can be. It took me 2 full days of changing bios settings and dvd selections with reinstalling over and over to figure out which worked! Once you get it going you will love it! I also used kalways 10.5.2. updater. dastrom
  6. Where To Get Drivers For A Dell

    It really depends on what Dell it is - and if it is a desktop or laptop some are more compatible than others. There are not drivers like in windows. If it is a desktop it may be easier since you can add a compatible video card etc. Go to the wiki: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page and look under category and make and hopefully there will be your model listed. Other than that you will just have to spend some time here reading posts (I've spent many hours) to see how others have solved some of the same issues. Some of the Dells I have played with I had to disable the ethernet in bios to get it to boot and then did some work on those kexts (like drivers in Windows) before enabling it again. Good luck! dastrom
  7. Intel Badaxe .306 Motherboard

    Check this thread - I think my post is #43 http://smallurl.co.uk/?2437 I used a sata hard drive, sata dvd-rw, and usb keyboard and mouse.

Installed well for me but took me two full days of messing with it to find the right settings and get it installed. Now it would be easy. My system works like a champ and I didn't have to touch the terminal once. I also updated to 10.5.2 using Kalyway_Hack 10.5.2 Combo Update and then Kalyway 10.5.2 kernals and then the graphics update after. Good luck! Let me know how it goes. dastrom
  8. Dell GX270

    I had better luck with iAtkos 10.5.1 r2 - did get it installed on a gx270 with sse2. I also had the problem of the dvd rebooting with Kalyways dvd and iAtkos r1 but not iAtkos r2. No efi though. dastrom
  9. Kalyway Leopard 10.5.1 Installer Disk

    retromacg3', I didn't update my bios and mine says BX97520J.86A.277.2007.0805.1747 I messed with the settings so much that the last time I chose save default settings and the only things I may have changed after that are the following: Core Multiplexing Technology <Enable> Advanced Peripheral Config Secondary SATA Controller <disabled> Drive Config Config SATA as <AHCI> Performance Bus Overrides HPET <enable> Security XD Tech <enable> VT Tech <disable> Power ACPI Susp State <S1 State> I think that is all I changed.

I'm not sure if the one you used is the same one but I'd find the one above if not. The differences between our setups are: I have 6420 Core2Duo 2.16ghz PATA dvd drive - I have all sata I have a 6200TC video card I have USB keyboard and mouse - not sure what you have Heres what I did - using 10.5.1 DVD (KALYWAY LEOPARD 10.5.1 intel SSE2 and SSE3).

I suspect either the video card is the problem or you partitioned as guid and chose mbr bootloader or partitioned as mbr and chose guid bootloader (both are mbr on mine and they have to be the same from what I understand). Hope this helps - I know how frustrating it can be. I have some other thoughts of things to try but I would start there and see how it goes - keep us posted! Once you get it going you will love it! dastrom

  11. How should i install leopard?

    In Windows I have used Everest Home (free) but for newer motherboards it may not list the name of the motherboard. Still should tell you the chipsets etc. You could always open the side and read it off the motherboard! dastrom
  12. I have a Bad Axe 2 system that is working great after using a sound patch from weaksauce that is posted in another thread. Took me a few days of trying both iAtkos and Kalyways disks. Kalyways worked for me finally. Spent a few hours today trying to get my Epson printers CX4800 and Epson Scan 2000 working. They would work somewhat on some pages and not others. I finally downloaded Gutenprint beta for 10.5 and they now work like a charm! Thanks Kaly for the great release - I couldn't be happier! Anyone needs help getting thier Bad Axe 2 going let me know. dastrom
  13. No problem here either - I installed on one of three partitions freshly formatted with Myzars 10.4.5 DVD. When I first tried to install I got the circle/slash symbol but it went fine after freshly formatting it with another install dvd. I too have the damaged iCal and intel915.kext error message. This was on a Intel D915glvgl Thanks for all your hard work JaS! dastrom
  14. Interesting thread! I think that there are few original ideas in any field - many more that take an idea and run with it or take it to the next level. Major corporations have done that for years in automobiles, fashion and just business in general. The first GUI I ever saw was on a computer from Corvus called the Concept. We had one at work and used a 68000 processor like the original macs. The desktop looked like the original Mac GUI but was in production when the IIe was state of the art for Apple. It had networking and even a monitor that could even change from landscape to portrait mode all back in 1982. Two years before Apples first GUI. Corvus went out of the pc market and 6mo-1yr later the first Macs with a extremely similar GUI came on the scene. I've always wondered if Apple bought them out or Corvus people were involved in some way. Either way I'd bet some of those people were the same that worked on the Macs first GUI. All these ideas came from trying to copy the Xerox Star that had a GUI or at least inspired them. Taking an idea and running with it or taking it to the next level but with marketing/spin many people credit Apple for having the first GUI. dastrom
  15. Multibooting Systems

    It is normal to not be able to boot without the dvd but the only way I could make mine work was to install Ubuntu with grub after the other operating systems. You do need a boot loader like grub to boot without the dvd. I use Grub from Ubuntu as my boot loader for osx86, windows XP and Ubuntu. I assume it will be the same for Grub in Fedora. You have to manually add it to the menu then it should work fine. In Ubuntu I go to terminal, and edit the menu.lst file in the grub folder. I think you need to have root permissions to change this, at least I do in Ubuntu. In Ubuntu I type sudo gedit and then my password when asked. gedit is the text editor I use. Add to the bottom of the menu.lst file: title Mac OSx86 root (0,1) makeactive chainloader +1 The (0,1) after root is the partition. In my system I just have one disk which is 0 and OSx86 on the second partition which is 1. The first partition is 0. If I had a second disk the first number in the parenthesis would be 1. Second disk second partition would be (1,1). Set the number in parenthesis correctly for your system and save. Works for me. I hope this is clear and helps! dastrom
