  1. Install on Dell Inspiron 1521

    Well my friend just finished installing iDeneb 10.5.5 on his Inspiron 1521 so I can probably tell you what he used... - Use Speedstep as your kernel, though he didn't experiment with any others so you might have better luck with ones like Sleep. - Don't select any graphics drivers. Unfortunately that model uses shared video memory so it may be along time before proper drivers are created to enable QE/CI - Also, don't select any audio drivers. There is a way to get choppy sound on your laptop, which can actually sound pretty good if you move the mouse really fast while your listening, but I have found no other way to get audio on it. - For Chipset I'd suggest you try installing them all and see what happens, cause when we only installed the ones we thought it needed and now his DVD drive doesn't work. - WiFi worked out of the box, though I think the ethernet port may need a driver... I can't seem to remember. - Make sure you select the AMD patch! Or it won't boot... - Choose whatever third-party applications interest you. iPhoto, Adium, and OSX86 Tools are usually the only ones I go with, but feel free to install them all. - There may be some other laptop specific things like PowerManagementBundle that you should install. - If theres a TimeMachineFix, you should take it; though you can always fix things like that once you have successfully installed Leopard. All in all when we finally installed it there were quite a few things missing... No Sound, and no video drivers (You won't be playing any games or using any fancy screensavers.) Also, for some reason the operating system won't boot unless the laptop is plugged in, though that can probably be fixed. We also tried Kalyway 10.5.2 and with it the DVD drive worked and it did boot on battery power, though it took almost 10 minutes to boot! Let me know how it goes and if you run into trouble I can probably help. I know it can be done on that laptop so it is possible...
  2. Mac OSX Kalyway 10.5.2 Instalation

    You might need to get your hands on a USB keyboard for the installation if your current keyboard doesn't work... I had the same problem and that's how I solved it. Though maybe someone whose been around the site longer could provide better information.
  3. Dual Booting Kalyway 10.5.2 and Vista

    I have a very similar setup, (Kalaway 10.5.2 and Vista Ultimate). I did not have this problem specifically but had similar problem and I solved it by booting off the Vista Installation DVD and reseting the Vista partition to active. (Go to Command Prompt, then type "diskpart", "list disk", then find the disk Vista is installed on and type "select disk x", where "x" is the drive number. Then "list partition" and "select partition x"; once again where "x" is the partition Vista is installed on. Finally type "active", then "quit".) Once you have set the Vista partition to active you should be able to reboot back into Windows and download "EasyBCD" Install it then go to "Add/Remove Entries". There should be an option to add a "Mac" entry. Select the "Type" as "Generic X86 PC" or something along those lines then name it. From there all you have to do is click add and reboot. You should boot into Vista's boot manager and be able to select both Windows and Mac OS. When you choose Mac, it should take you to Darwin. You should probably specify whether you have both Windows and Mac on the same hard drive or separate ones, but in the end it should make no difference, I think.
  4. Solving USB problems; USB devices do not mount

    I had the USB mounting problem and tried the installer and it worked great. But now it seems I have another problem; my Restart/Sleep/Shutdown have stopped working. When I select Restart or Shutdown, it starts to log off and the dock and menubar disappear, then the monitor enters "sleep mode" but the computer remains running and I have to hold down the power button to turn it off. With Sleep, it enters sleep mode but I cannot wake it. All three of these features were working last night, and I haven't made any changes since then other than this installer. I am running Kalyway 10.5.2 Intel/AMD. Hmm... Well, I just finished installing the fix for High Speed bus recognition posted by " Mysticus C*" and now my Restart/Shutdown/Sleep commands seem to fixed... I don't know why but I'm not complaining. My "Hackintosh" is now 100% working, so I would like to give my thanks to the many members of this community whose posts, drivers, kexts and DVD's helped me to achieve this. Keep up the amazing work!
  5. Rearranging Data

    Well, I gave it a go and everything worked without a hitch...
  6. Rearranging Data

    I recently installed Kalaway 10.5.2 on my eMachines T3106 and am dualbooting Vista Ultimate. Almost everything works flawlessly, with the exception of onboard ethernet. My problem now though is that my data for Windows and Leopard span all three hard disks (I sacrificed an optical drive to add the third one). The layout is as follows: -------------------------Hard Drive 1--------------Hard Drive 2----------------Hard Drive 3 Partition 1:----------Vista Ultimate - (27GB)-----Data For Vista - (23GB)--Data For Leopard - (20GB) Partition 2:----------OS X 10.5.2 - (10GB)-------Time Machine - (15GB) Now I'd like to minimize the number of hard disks running per operating system, and give my Kalaway install more space for programs and media. I was thinking of rearranging my hard disks to look like this: -------------------------Hard Drive 1----------------Hard Drive 2------------Hard Drive 3 Partition 1:----------Vista Ultimate - (37GB)-----OSX 10.5.2 - (38GB)---Time Machine - (20GB) Could I just delete the OSX 10.5.2 partition, and extend the Vista partition to cover the whole drive? Then just format the second hard drive and install OSX.10.5.2 again? Finally just format the third hard drive and set it up for Time Machine? Also, could I just use EasyBCD to create a boot entry for OSX on the second hard disk, or is it more complicated? Any help would be appreciated, and sorry if I'm lacking information or am posting in the wrong section, as this is my first post.
