  1. I thought every piece of hardware had a unique identifier. Someone needs to setup a kext archive site that your program can just compare to the local computer and get whatever is needed (like Microsoft Update I guess is what I am used to) OK, so where do I get kexts? The only thing that doesn't work on my laptop right now is the webcam. Everything else is fine. Edit: Found somethin called CamTwist for my webcam, gonna try it out. Still would like to know where the centralized library of kexts are.
  2. so, i just got 10.6.7 up an running in VirtualBox. Can I just run this tool on there now and it will autodetect the remaining drivers I need and get them?

    that just proves my point. that there is a BIG problem with the forum/hosting code, not the newcomers. don't talk down to me like i am some stupid young 16yr old kid. I have been in the IT business for over 15 years. ever heard of QNIX? yeah, didn't think so. stop putting people down and realize it is not our fault that the forum will NOT ALLOW new topics for many users. there is a problem with the pho code, the problem is not with me. stop being a jerk, grow up, and read the bginning of my post again. i said i was intentionally hijacking the thread because i was forced to. there was no way for me to post a new thread, the forum just gives an error everytime i try, and i have created 3 usernames now to get this working. i got no response from the help forum that i posted in 4 days ago now, and i have emailed 3 admins, and gotten NO response. how is any of this my fault? look, this is my last post here, because it obviously didnt work in getting any help, but i still had to do it and my logic in posting here was justified since the forum isnt working. -C
  6. I am sorry, but I am being forced to huijack a thread. No matter what I try over the last 5 days, I have tried 10 to 20 times I cannot make a new topic in ANY forum. I enter my post it then it says "you must enter a post" when I submit it, and then erases the entire post I just entered! Ahh, this is so frustrating, so I am going to use this thread to post my issue... === Ok, here' s my topic - I am building a Quad Xeon Hackintosh. I pasted the info from Apple's site for their current MacPro, and then the list of hardware I am buying. How does this look?... === From Apple's Site...Mac Pro (8 cores standard, up to 3.2 GHz) -Two 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Harpertown" processors -2GB memory (800MHz DDR2 fully-buffered DIMM ECC) -ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics with 256MB memory -320GB Serial ATA 3Gb/s 7200-rpm hard drive1 -16x double-layer SuperDrive === So, here's my custom parts list... -MOTHERBOARD: Asus Z7S = $480 @ newegg -CPU: Intel Quad Xeon E5420 - BX80574E5420A = $330 @ newegg (QTY = 2) -MEMORY: OCZ Platinum Rev2 PC-6400 DDR2 800 (1GB) - OCZ2P800R21G = $23 @ amazon (QTY = 4) Do I need EEC instead? -VIDEO: ATI Radeon HD 3870X2 (1GB) = $275 @ tigerdirect I heard that MacOSX OSx86 will only recognize 256mb...? -AUDIO: (on board) -OPTICAL: 20x Pioneer DVR-116D = $70 @ amazon -WIRELESS: MA688ZM ??? What will work in both MacOSX OSx86 (show up as "Airport") and work in Windows? === I will primarily be using this computer for HD video editing on Premiere Pro when booted into Windows and HD video editing in Final Cut Pro when booted into MacOSX, so a lot of rendering. I will NOT be playing games on it at all, but I will be using it also for a webserver and mail server for my personal domains. NOt a ton of traffic, but enough to be left on 24/7 and also why I am going with Xeon CPUs on a 771 socket mobo rather than Core2Quad on a 775 socket. So, will this setup work well for runniong OSx86 and Windows? Also, if you can answer my questions above, I'd appreciate that too. THANKS!!

    Often unable to post

    I cannot post any new topics. I have tried about 10 times over the last 5 days. What is going on?? I am just sitting here twittling my thumbs waiting to buy hardware for my hackintosh, but I need to post to get advice before I make the purchase. I cannot post, so I cannot purchase. this is so frustrating -C

    I REALLY need help and let me first say I am SO sorry for hijacking this thread, but no matter what I do I cannot make a NewTopic in the hardware forum! Something is wrong with the site...I have tried in Firefox and Iexplore and STILL get that error "You must enter a post" as if I never type anything.
