  1. Atheros Network Drivers

    I'm sorry guys, but I also desperately need help with my Atheros wireless card. I've done everything, but it is listed in the System Profiler. Things I've Done: - Copied the two kext files from the 10.4.5 intel update into the Extensions folder. - Chmodded and chrowned the IO80211Family.kext file. - Edited the NetworkInterface file (en0 to en1) (actually, the file didn't exist and I created it) - Repaired permissions on the Mac disk. My computer specs: - Toshiba Satellite A55-S106 - 1.4 GHz Intel Celeron M - 512 MB SDRAM And here is the info for my wireless card from the terminal: | | | +-o LAN@8 <class IOPCIDevice, registered, matched, active, busy $ | | | { | | | "built-in" = <00> | | | "IODeviceMemory" = (({"address"=18446744072904175616,"lengt$ | | | "device-id" = <3d100000> | | | "IOChildIndex" = 5 | | | "name" = "ethernet" | | | "acpi-path" = "IOACPIPlane:/_SB/PCI0@0/PCIB@1e0000/LAN@8000$ | | | "IOName" = "ethernet" | | | "vendor-id" = <86800000> | | | "revision-id" = <83000000> | | | "subsystem-vendor-id" = <79110000> | | | "IOInterruptControllers" = ("8259-pic") | | | "Power Management private data" = "{ this object = 02520d00$ | | | "Power Management protected data" = "{ theNumberOfPowerStat$ | | | "acpi-reg" = <00400000> | | | "class-code" = <00000200> | | | "compatible" = <"pci1179,1","pci8086,103d","pciclass,020000$ | | | "subsystem-id" = <01000000> | | | "assigned-addresses" = <104001020000000000f0fecf00000000001$ | | | "reg" = <00400100> | | | "IOInterruptSpecifiers" = (<0b00000007000000>) | | | } Thank you so much to anyone who helps me with this.
  2. Hi all, I just installed OSX86 (finally!) and everything works great, but I have a question. Whenever booting into Mac, the "startup" screen is just a bunch of white text against a black screen, and then goes into the login screen. To get the ultimate "feel" of OSX, is there any way I can just have the regular startup screen (Apple logo, spinny thing) to work everytime I boot? If this helps, I'm dual booting Windows XP and Mac OS X 10.4.4 on a Toshiba Satellite A55-S106. Thanks for the help!
  3. Hi all, I have the installation discs to install Mac OS X (10.4.4 i think) that came with my iBook G4. I have also obtained a Maxxuss patch (the folder is named "Maxxuss_Kernel_Patches_8F1111_Release2"). Would I be able to use the patch with these discs and burn the whole thing on a DVD? The PC I would like to install this on has SSE2. Thanks for the help.
  4. I don't know if this helps, but I had the same problem so I followed what some other guy on here said: I mounted the ISO with DAEMON tools and pressed ESC when the VMware loaded and then chose the CD-ROM drive. It displayed the Darwin loader which said "Press any key to install Mac OSX or F8 for advanced options". I pressed F8 and at the "boot:" prompt I just pressed enter and it worked! I then ran into another error, but that's just another story for me... it'll work for you.
  5. I'm afraid I've hit an error... At first it said that the plist thing cannot be found, and then somebody said that hitting enter at boot: worked for them so I did it, and it worked for me. It went to the Apple logo and then VMware displayed a message that said: In the same thread about hitting enter at boot:, somebody said to enter in 'paevm="true" ' or something like that in the config file, but alas no luck. Here is a page for the specifications. Thank you greatly for any help.
  6. How to clean up my Mac OS9?

    Haha, thanks for the help, Escape and Macgirl. The site is down now, but I hope it's just a temporary thing. Luff to you both. <3
  7. (Note: I've never used OS9 before...) As mentioned in the OSx86 Installation forum, my brother's friend gave me a PowerBook G3 with OS9. It has a lot of...stuff...on there and I was wondering how I could get rid of all the files and make it like new. Keep in mind that I don't have any install CDs, just the PowerBook. Thanks!
  8. Would OSx86 install on a mac system?

    Thanks for explaining that onixwj, but you said that like I've never touched a computer in my life.
  9. Well, my brother's friend gave me his old PowerBook G3 (which has OS 9.2). I don't really have any use for it, I just thought it would be cool to have. I'm wondering if I could use an OSx86 DVD to install OSX on that PowerBook? Or is the ISO strictly just for Intel processors...? Thanks for your help.
  10. What did I do wrong?

    Actually it was an IMG file. And yeah, I made sure I extracted it properly . But like the first replier said, the deadmoo image is old (10.4.1) which I also learned from other users. But hey, I'm going to get a newer ISO file (from a friend of course..) and I won't give up!
  11. What did I do wrong?

    I tried to install osx86 using linux using this guide, so I was at the part where I just had to execute the command in the terminal. I did, and after maybe 5 seconds, it displayed things like "--- bytes transfered in --- seconds". That's all it did. I thought that couldn't be that quick...but I restarted and it shows this message: "Darwin/x86 boot v5.0.122 223 MB memory VESA v3.0 30MB (S3 Graphics ProSavage DDR Family BIOS) Use ^ v keys to select startup volume. hd(0,1) tiger-x86 Press enter to start uo Darwin/x86 blah blah blah... boot: " No matter what I type in (-v, -x, ?) I get the message "System Config File '/Library/Preferences/System Configuration/com.apple.boot.plist' not found" What did I do wrong? Is there another way? I'm hearing of people talking about using vmware to install it but I have no idea what that is. I'm doing this on a ~3 year old computer so I have no idea what the processor is. Thanks for your help.
