  1. [GUIDE] Dell Latitude E6410

    This fix worked after I made the partition writable with /sbin/mount -uw / Still using the 16GB Kngston USB drive, I booted in to 10.6 and got to step 19 before I hit another snag. Software update failed twice using the combo updater (now 10.6.4), saying the installer was corrupt. On another Hac, I DL'd the combo updater package directly from Apple support and saved to another thumb drive. When I run this update, the installer gets to about 99% with a minute left an then hangs. Then the system cannot be rebooted and I have to re-install.
  2. [GUIDE] Dell Latitude E6410

    so it seems my problem has to do with the fact that my e6510 has 8GB of ram.. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...1876&st=100 A solution was proposed, but I am unsure how to boot into single user mode AND have read/write privs. I tried the following, but every command returned a scolding about how I was in read only directory.
  3. [GUIDE] Dell Latitude E6410

    I tried installing to my thumb drive that I formatted and partitioned on another Hac and when I attempt to boot from it I get the same error as before, although now on /dev/rdisk1s2 , which is the hfs+ partition I installed to. This is from my terminal when I boot into the installer and run fsck:

    I get the same BAD SUPER BLOCK: MAGIC NUMBER WRONG error... fsck also told me there were blocks it could not access, I'm going to try a few more things and take some more screenshots.
  5. [GUIDE] Dell Latitude E6410

    I am trying (triple boot) guide on my e6510 and I get stuck between step 14 and 15 in the Mac OS Setup part. The install fails as expected, and after reboot the chameleon boot loader shows the HFS+ partition. But when I try to boot from it, I get an error that forces the system to shutdown. /dev/rdisk0s3 Unexpected Inconsistency Exited with Signal 8 Can't initialize disk cache fsck failed ... CPU HALTED I have tried to identify /dev/rdisk0s3, which seems to be my hfs+ partition. I have re-installed several times and redone the partition scheme different ways (mainly GUID) At one point I gave up in frustration and used clonezilla to restore my dell back to factory settings (Win7) from the iso I made prior to the Hac attempt. Then I tried installing SL on a 16GB Kingston thumb drive only to get hung up at the exact same spot. I boot back into the installer to use terminal to run fsck and fsck reports back: Bad Super Block: Magic Number Wrong Any suggestions? The only thing I'm doing different from your guide is I'm using SnowLeopard installer from an 8GB Kingston thumbdrive instead of an actual install DVD. I have installed from this installer on other Hacintosh without problems.
  6. So I was donated an old ThinkCentre A50. Leo4All v3 got me up and running, now I must deal with my video...Intel865G I was unable to find any promising news for getting 865G video to function right in Leopard. To complicate matters, there is no AGP or PCI-e on the motherboard. Can I use a standard PCI card? I assume geforce6200? PNY VCG62256PEB GeForce 6200 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814133234 Will this work?
