  1. Hi Folks, Sorry I haven't kept up with you as of late. I have been watching the Apple blogsphere though and one of those things that have kept my interest going is the development of Snow Leopard. We are all aware of its principles: - Improving Performance - Reducing Disk footprint - Making better use of graphics cards through OpenCL - Taking advantage of the multi-core CPUs from Intel through Grand Central - Better support of industry standard enterprise server technologies like Exchange Server and Active Directory - 64-bit support across the board - Intel x86 support only, no more PPC (Well, this one I am not sure about, but its looking like a definite). The last point brings up an interesting topic, with 10.6 most likely being the first x86 support only version of OS X, could Apple be signaling that they are planning to bring OS X for Intel to the mainstream by supporting on Tier One PC vendors such as Dell, HP, ACER and Lenovo? Many would say, Apple is still of the mantra that hardware plus software is what creates such a special experience and differentiates them from other vendors. True, but over the past 3 years, Apple has become a very open Company, from the support of the iPod on PC's, iTunes on Windows and eventual migration to x86 and Safari for Windows. These are some examples I personally believe Apple is giving the industry, that it might be time to give up on its well known traditions. January 2007 at Macworld was a great highlight with the Company changing its brand name from 'Apple Computers' to 'Apple Incorporated'. The move to support OS X on generic PC's is also something that would be met with considerable support. The OS X x86 Project and Community is the greatest example that people out there love Mac OS X! The fact that we have with each release, each update kept at the constant improvements, innovation, hacks to improve support on unsupported hardware, is probably very humbling to Apple. Recent speculation that Apple will be introducing cheaper notebooks is also a likely possibility that Apple could be toning down the PC Business, although they have emphasized great design and aesthetics which has brought them noterity in the Industry - MacBook Air, multi-touch. Apple is known as the leader in the innovation and creating standards we take for granted and PC vendors end up gobbling into their own products. This was amplified when Apple introduced the MacBook Pro with built in web-cam, others immediately followed. Regardless of all this, I believe software remains at the heart of Apple and the Company I believe would love for more people to experience the best of Apple. Thoughts
  2. It looks like this is it for me with Kalyway, and I'm pretty much done. I am just completely frustrated! its stuck at the following lines and won't take me to the OOBE portion of setup: AirPort_Athr5424ab: Ethernet address 00:16:cf:65:4c:bd Just before that, it says: IOKitWaitQuite ( ) timed out waiting to write Kernel Symbols any ideas what this could mean? Please, I am desperate for some help on this one. I have reinstalled Kalyway about 15 times now and don't know what else to do. Specs AMD Turion X2 2.0 GHz 2 GBs of RAM ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 19 GB partition Thanks to all

    Athlon XP 2400+ DVD Boot-Loop Problems

    Well, I tried Kalyway on my AMD Sempron 1.6 GHz which is 64 bit enabled and supports SSE 2 and 3 and get the reboot loop too. I suspect it might be something to do with IDE DVD drives or some other unknown problem with the system.
  5. Good evening, Ok, I have Leopard and Vista x64 successfully dual booted, but Leopard is stuck at the following line and won't budge, I am wondering if I should just wait it out. CODE SIGNING: CS_invalid_page: p=143[lssave] clearing CS_VALID I waited at a similar line the last time and it went on to the OOBE but this one seems to be taking longer than usual. Update I rebooted in Single user mode and used the following commands to finish setup: It started spewing out a list of commands stopping at the following: CODE SIGNING: CS_invalid_page: p=103[lssave] clearing CS_VALID Any idea what could be going on here? I am at the brink of just restoring my Complete PC Backup because it seems like Leopard and my laptop aren't meant to be.

    Leopard on SSE2

    Well, I think its something with either IDE DVD drives or ATA hard disk. The same disk I burn installs successfully on my laptop.
  7. Hey Skyper, Thanks for the update. Well, I know that Leopard can install just fine on the machine, but I am having some problems with partitioning. You said Kext for my video card. I thought the Radeon drivers that come with Kalyway are already compatible. Thing is, for the second install, I didn't select them. ATI Mobility Radeon x1600 - 256 MB As for the current setup, I am back on Vista at the moment, I plan on obtaining Acronis Disk Director and setup a partition. I was hoping Complete PC backup would restore to a provided partition, but it deleted the other logical partition I had also setup for Leopard. Thanks
  8. Hi Skyper, thanks for the reply Oops, I should have realized, no it does not. Well, I am doing a Complete PC Restore of Vista right now and I am going to attempt another go at Leopard after thats done. You think this issue with video card could also be attributed to why my touch pad is buggy when hovering the mouse pointer over menus? Thanks
  9. Well, it installed! Darn slow and buggy. Contextual menus would just disappear when I hover the mouse pointer over them, this also happens with drop down menus too. I checked System Profiler, said my Graphics card is installed and supported buts its slow. I am talking 256 MB ATI Radeon x1600 mobility and 2GBs of RAM and an Turion X2 processor. Any suggestions on why this is happening? Also, I notice there are no options in Kalyway to install components post installation like the additional software or even patches like the video card driver first presented during installation. Thanks again to everyone for the help.
  10. Hey iSkylla, thanks for the prompt reply. Well, some Google results have shown success with 10.5.2 Kalyway on Turion, so I guess its at least worth a try with the patches. Less hope it works this time, I have a lot of work ahead of me, because I need to restore my Complete PC Backup of Vista after this. Vista was giving me pure problems shrinking its partition. Wanna dual boot the two badly. Thanks again
  11. OK, so I just reinstalled, minusing the AMD patches and video drivers. Now its at the Apple logo. But the pin wheel is spinning rather slowly, is this normal? Thanks
  12. Installed successfully - Kalyway 10.5.2 AMD_Intel SSE2/3 But it stops at the following line: cs_invalid_page: p=86[lssave] clearing CS_Valid Acer Ferrari 5000 2 GBs of DDR RAM AMD Turion X2 Processor (64 bit) ATI 256 MB Card x1600 160 GB Disk During installation, I selected the AMD 10.5.2 patches and my video card and thats about it.

    Leopard on SSE2

    Oh well, I guess its the end of the road for me then with OS X on AMD. I downloaded the Kalyway 10.5.2 Intel_AMD SSE 2/3, but just like persons in this thread, I am in the 'reboot loop'. I currently have Tiger 10.4.8 Jas on the partition I planned on installing Leopard. Tiger itself is a mess and just does not work at all, can't get to install 10.4.9 or find a decent update of it, can't install some of the latest apps I would like to test and review such as Adobe CS3 and Office 2008. I am still glad for all the help I got. Gonna load Ubuntu 8.04 LTS on that partition when its released Thursday. As for OS X and my future looks like the best way right now is to save and buy one from Apple.
  14. Hello Everyone, Finally downloaded Kalway 10.5.2, tried installing, but it just goes in a reboot loop. Tried the various -x, -s, -x v, and so on. But same results. I have disabled Legacy USB support and many other recommended components in the BIOS. Specs: ASROCK K8 Upgrade motherboard February 2006 AMD Sempron 1.6 GHz (64-Bit Enabled) SSE 2, SSE 3 512 MBs of DDR RAM 15 GB Partition LITE-ON DVD drive (IDE) I currently have 10.4.8 Jas on the partition and have installed successfully. the Kalway ISO was burnt at the lowest speed possible (1x) Gonna try 4 x, but would love some suggestions why this reboot loop keeps happening. I notice reboot does not occur on my laptop and goes really far. Thanks for your help
