  1. Ok, I now have a successful install on my HDX16. In my previous post I inquired about the new iDeneb 10.5.8 distro, but that didn't work, it just stalled during install. Others have recommended iAtkos 10.5.7, which installed beautifully. Don't select any graphics/sound drivers. I installed OSX86Tools and update the graphics through the GFX EFI menu. Search for a topic under "IDT sound" and install the AppleHDA.kext from there. Voila! Everything works except for the wifi. Luckily, I have bluetooth, and I can tether through my Sprint PCS. I'm also dual booting with Windows 7. Google "Latest Drivers HDX16 Windows 7" for a perfect upgrade to Win7 with everything working. I'm using EasyBCD. I'm freakin happy now, and now I can go to sleep peacefully...
  2. I just got my HDX16t a week ago. Still doing more research before I try installing OSX. I have iATKOS 10.5.7 ready to go, but I read this guys install guide of iDeneb 10.5.8 on his HP DV7. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=183444 Isn't the HDX16 pretty much identical to the DV7? For those who have had success with installing OSX on their HDX, are you dual booting? And what method is your dual boot? Thanks in advance.
  3. I've installed the iPC 10.5.6 distro successfully. Truly amazing that I am using OS X on my PC. Everything works except for sleep, but I have no problem with that. My only annoyance is a very slight mouse lag. Any ideas what could be causing this? I have a feeling it could be the video drivers. I've noticed it on the NVKush and NVInject drivers. The NVKush has better response from what I've noticed. When I did a fresh install with no video drivers the mouse response was 100%, so that's where I'm basing this guess. I will have to try a different video card to see if I am correct.
  4. Yes that was the problem! I updated Itunes and Quicktime without even thinking about it. I've reinstalled Leo and everything is working great. One thing that's happened though I've gotten the OS X "blue screen" when I've tried accessing a data DVD. I've had to reboot completely, and this has happened twice. Now I've been able to use my DVD drive on other occassions with no problems. I'm thinking this has to do with my drives being IDE, and the JMicron drivers are unstable. And the last thing is sleep is still not working for me. I've installed the EHCISleepEnabler.kext file which changed the behavior of how my computer tried to "wake up". Before installing EHCISleepEnabler the computer would sleep with all the fans still on and Power LED lit up. Upon trying to wake it up, these factors stay the same. After installing the kext, putting it to sleep would actually turn everything off. I thought it was a success. I pressed the power button, the computer fired up and nothing appeared on the screen. This might be because my Abit ip35-e mobo has the double boot problem, which I've neglected to fix because it did not annoy me. I will try to update the BIOS and see what happens. All in all, I am very happy that Leopard is working real well. I'm sooo tempted to make a new system and turn it into a Hackintosh "BEAST"
  5. First of all, I just want to thank everyone here on the forums who have made it possible for people to have OS X on their PC. I discovered this 2 weeks ago and I am still amazed and excited. I've successfully installed the Kalyway 10.5.2 distro with everything working. The annoyances I had with that install were mouse lag and the graphics looking jagged (text was not easy to read, video looked worse). I came to the conclusion that it must have been the NVInject 0.2.0 drivers not being 100% compatible, because without NVInject, no mouse lag or graphic issues. I could not live with those annoyances so I spent New Years Day installing the new iPC 10.5.6 distro. This install went great. Everything working except for Shutdown/Reboot. I installed the NVInject 0.2.1 after installin iPC 10.5.6 and everything worked better than before. BUT now there are stuttering issues with Itunes and Quicktime. Mouse movement and video stutter a little while those programs are on. VLC runs great, as do Adobe CS3 suite. XBench gets 220 w/o disk. My Setup: Dual Booting using the XP chain:0 method. Abit ip35-e Intel e6700 dual core 4gb Kingston ram EVGA 8800gt 512mb 2 x 320gb SATA seagate hd 2 x DVDr IDE drives (JMicron386) Dynex wifi card (oob detection) I've yet to try disabling IDE altogether and hooking up an SATA dvdr drive. Perhaps I'll try a new video card. I'd also like to try different boot methods. Do you think boot methods can affect performance and system operation? The reason for this post is to talk about my experience and to see if others are noticing these small annoyances and also those who have their system working 100%.
