  1. BootCDMaker

    Thanks. I was finally able to make a boot flash drive. I had made one before with a similar process but it didn't work. I think my OS X install was messed up at the time though. The only thing I can't seem to get working on my GA-EP35-DS3R is my SATA DVD-Drive in IDE mode. I had to set it to IDE mode for Windows 7 to install from it. But I can just switch the bios setting back to AHCI for the rare occasion when I need to use the drive though. And thank you Trauma for a great utility!
  2. I researched several threads and it appears that the Chameleon bootloader is currently unable to boot in RAID mode. For several reasons, I ended up just using a USB flash drive to boot to Mac OS X. I can live with that. If somebody finds a solution though, that would be great.

    Can this program be modified to create a boot USB stick? I don't want the Snow Leopard DVD image on it for installation, I just want to be able to boot from the stick to my hard drive.
  4. How do you change the "es_oso" kernel boot parameter?
  5. I confirmed I'm using Zenith's 1.0.1 Ensoniq driver Zenith, with your new Ensoniq driver, should I use the following options, or leave them alone? sound.highPriority = "TRUE" pciSound.priorityBoost = "TRUE"
  6. I used the installer inside a virtual machine using Donk's template, which works great by the way Donk, but I'm still getting minor stuttering and occasional popping. Has anyone else heard popping?
  7. I updated to 10.5.6 and used the -v -x -f flags after rebooting. So far I haven't had any problems. I bought a swappable drive bay with two trays and am going to try to install Leopard on my physical box this weekend. If I get frustrated, this way I can just pop my Windows drive back in with a turn of a key. Wish me luck!
  8. Donk, could you or anyone explain why this should be done. What happens if you forget, and do you have to do it for each subsequent core update, 10.5.5, 10.5.6, etc?
  9. Edit /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist to include this: <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1280×1024×32</string>
  10. Whether the version of Windows you are using is 32-bit or 64-bit must be factored in, otherwise if you have 64-bit Vista, then signiso will try to use C:\Program Files\VMWare\Product instead of C:\Program Files (x86)\Vmware\Product and fail to copy the files. This could either be hard coded or use a test.
  11. Thank you Donk. Keep up the good work.
  12. Try editing Darwin.vmx and remove these lines: USB:1.deviceType = "hub" usb:1.present = "TRUE" This was Xordan's solution and it worked for both him and I.
  13. Sorry for your bereavement Donk. Just wanted to say I admire the work you've done.
  14. Here is the automatic boot ISO I made from the process described earlier: Boot.iso You will also need to edit /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist to include this code: <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> The timeout value can be whatever you want.
  15. Does anyone know how to change the ISO volume label during the mkisofs process? I tried changing "-V Boot" to "-V MacBoot" but it gave an error message.
