  1. OK. I see. I'm alone here. Good news. Yes We Can! Now I get connected external monitor and I can see my system with 1280x1024. Here is my "pre-HEXed plist" for com.apple.Boot.plist. It works only for external monitor. Internal notebooks display does not work. Any ideas what's wrong in here? <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)</key> <dict> <key>@0,compatible</key> <string>NVDA,NVMac</string> <key>@0,device_type</key> <string>display</string> <key>@0,name</key> <string>NVDA,Display-A</string> <key>@1,compatible</key> <string>NVDA,NVMac</string> <key>@1,device_type</key> <string>display</string> <key>@1,name</key> <string>NVDA,Display-B</string> <key>NVCAP</key> <data> BAAAAAAAAwAMAAAAAAAABwAAAAA= </data> <key>NVPM</key> <data> AQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA== </data> <key>VRAM,totalsize</key> <string>0x20000000</string> <key>device_type</key> <string>NVDA,Parent</string> <key>model</key> <string>nVidia GeForce 8600M GT</string> <key>name</key> <string>display</string> <key>rom-revision</key> <string>nVidia GeForce 8600M GT OpenGL Engine [EFI]</string> </dict> </dict> </plist> I suppose that this section must been changed, but how exactly? : And anybody knows what does in mean? : I will keep trying fix this and after that will be the next step - get the Quartz Extreme enable. Quartz GL is supported now. Follow the story, keep looking or you can help me!
  2. Now i understand that nothing works for my Toshiba G40 nVidia 8600M GT 512 Mb (revision 1a.) with 10.5.6 Retail installed (in 10.5.4 Retail without update - the same picture). I have check all the versions i now - NVDarwin, NVinject, NVinjectGO (NVinstaller v.41), EFIstudio, GFXutil. I have add my device ID (0x040710de) to NVDA50HAL.kext, GeForce.kext and NVDAResman.kext. I have spend a lot of time editing com.apple.boot.plist and so many times restore it back. Now i have two way to work in OS X - 1024x768 without any others resolutions in display preferences section or Black screen after the system boot. Last one is a little bit uncomfortable There are no clear errors messages in log during the boot with -v. The only string is "NVDA50HAL.kext installed and registered" and couple strings like "Vga: Family Specific matching fails" or something like that. I know that nVidia 8600M GT 512 Mb (revision 1a.) works well in Dell notebooks and may be in many others, but what about my Toshiba G40? May be i should update firmware? I didn't find any. Guys, be so kindly, give me a favor don't let my Toshiba make a perfect fly from the roof. Any advises - welcome! It will be great to get real solution from the Toshiba g40 users. I can't believe that I'm only crazy maniac trying install Leopard to Toshiba g40.
  3. Problem with first boot on Mac X on Pc

    Better try "passwd root" instead "pass root"
  4. Problem with first boot on Mac X on Pc

    Boot with -s key, and wait for system loading. then afer all You will see "root#:" command line. Write down the following commands /sbin/mount -uw [Click enter, wait for "root#:"] touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone (no space but point before "A" letter) [Click enter, wait for "root#:"] passwd root [Click enter] System will ask You for password. Chose any password you gonna to enter Leopard with. Then submit this password again, when it ask you for submission. Voala. You're in.
