  1. @ Sunlite.... You might need a new download for iAtkos 5i. I have a Dell 1420 Inspiron and I have full function (aside from my speakers and ethernet). The forums here and on uphuck.com should be a help. MacGirl also has some AppleHDA kext fixes on here that I used after updating to 10.5.6. The update actually fixed all my video problems I was having. If one can deal with just not having speakers, your hardware should respond the same as mine, unless you don't have a Dell Wireless card and have one of the Intel ones that there's no patch for. My media keys even work....it's been a great changeover process, so DON'T GIVE UP on it. By the way, I am using Safari from my Inspiron/Mac now. I didn't want a dual boot, so I'm just on Mac OSx.
  2. Dell Laptops Post-installer - XPS, Inspiron, Vostro, Lattitude

    Well...I have gotten a good install on a Dell Inspiron1420 and the only thing that just doesn't work (and I wish it would) is onboard sound. In the Bios I have a Sigmatel 9205, but the forums say use the 9228...but neither work and the post installer is ineffective as well. My mediakeys work just fine. The funniest thing was that I had trouble with the graphics UNTIL I updated to 10.5.6. The update fixed the problems I was having. I don't really get it, but I don't care. So...HOW THE HECK DOYOU GET THE SIGMATEL TO WORK? 1. Do I use 9205 or 9228? 2. Is there an installer or something that will make it work with 10.5.6? 3. Thank you to everyone that has done research, patching, testing, etc. I love using MacOs and have had fun with the process of changing my Dell into a Hackintosh.
