  1. Kernel Panic 10.4.1

    After further research, it appears that my laptop and OS X don't support the DVD, so I need to make an image of the install of this computer and install it to that laptop like 10.4.1 did. Can anyone tell me how I can make an image of this install? Thank you so much!
  2. Kernel Panic 10.4.1

    I just tried to install 10.4.1 natively onto my laptop (the DVD's wouldn't work). After installing, my computer kept going into a loop stating that it needed a reboot when I went into OS X. I tried going in with -s and -v and found the following error: panic nfs_boot_init failed with 6 Debugger called: <panic> I am using an HP Pavilion ZV5000 with 512mb of memory. Any direction you could give would be greatly appreciated. Chris
  3. Upgrade Advise

    It is an Intel, when I used -v it would stop loading right after the IPv6 loads and wouldn't go any further than that. I reinstalled 10.4.3 now. I'm not sure if I can patch to 10.4.4 and then up from there or if I have to install with an ISO.
  4. Upgrade Advise

    I have a Sony Vaio, 3 ghz Processor, using ATA, 768 MB RAM, using onboard LAN and Sound (which work with no problems), Radeon 9200. Thanks for your help!
  5. Upgrade Advise

    I've read through the forums and have a question about upgrading from 10.4.3 to 10.4.5. What is the easiest way? I downloaded the 10.4.5 Mylar ISO and tried to install, but have hit some problems along the way. Install would go okay, but on the reboot, it would hang on loading OS X screen. I'm not sure if there is an easier way or a different ISO. I haven't had any problems loading 10.4.1 or 10.4.3; everything has always worked with no problems. Any direction you could point to would be appreciated greatly. Thanks for your time!
  6. 10.4.3 Installation Assistance

    I tried to install 10.4.3 vid DVD to my laptop (disc worked fine on my desktop). When it gets to the opening apple screen, it just sits there, my hard drive stops and i get a circle with a line through it. Any ideas on how to get this to work? It is a 3ghz HP Pavilion, with 512mb of ram. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Chris
  7. 10.4.3 Post Installation Problem

    I've tried everything I can think of, I can see the windows partition, OS X is running great, just can't use the dual boot and get back into windows. Has anyone else had this problem before?
  8. 10.4.3 Post Installation Problem

    After tinkering, I put PS2 keyboards and mice on and got OS X to load (using the DVD). Now, how can I reset the partitions to make the Win XP the active one? I would like to be able to not have to use the DVD and to be able to use the Windows partition as needed (proprietary software unfortunately). Thanks for all of your time and suggestions, Chris
  9. 10.4.3 Post Installation Problem

    I had the chain0 on there before the reinstall, but I can't even boot into Windows now (get OS missing error).
  10. 10.4.3 Post Installation Problem

    I just installed 10.4.3, overwrote the 10.4.1 (on purpose) and now when it boots, i get a missing operating system. Put the DVD in, can boot to the OS X, but my USB mouse only will go in the corner. Two questions: 1. How can I get my mouse to work 2. How can i get my XP back and dual boot? Thanks for your help! Chris
  11. USB Not Working

    Where can I get a copy of that file? Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks! Chris
  12. Office:Mac for OSX86

    I have it installed, yes it does work, and works great. I haven't had any problems with the software being buggy at all. Chris
  13. Mouse Function

    Right clicking on files to get info or right clicking in Safari will crash the program and return to the desktop. Is there something I can rebuild or try to get this to work properly?
  14. Mouse Function

    I had my mouse working fine until I rebooted. Now everytime I try to right click on something, it crashes any program that is opened up. Can anyone point me in the general direction of a fix? Thanks for the help! Chris
  15. USB Not Working

    It appears that USB is working, somewhat. My printers can print, but can not initialize the scanner. I got my Nano to work but not my webcam (says not found). Any ideas?
