  1. Toshiba Satalite A205-S5825

    Ok, so I grabbed the iDeneb 1.5.1 PPF, and patching the 1.5.0 ISO did the trick. The installer saw the partitions, and I'm up and running with video, sound, and LAN. Everything is working so far except the WLAN. I'm going to try to install the AR5007EG drivers and cross my fingers. On first bootup, I was getting the video hang, so I ran it with -v -x and it booted in safe mode, then on restart I didn't do anything special, and it booted fine! So if I can't get the WLAN working, I may just get a pcmcia card and see if I have better luck that way.....
  2. Any file I try to download from here tells me the file has been moved or deleted. I see this happened once before, so I'm patiently awaiting a fix!

    Reinstalled Kalyway 10.5.2, and got the wifi working using kext IO80211Family_kext_v.2.1.2.zip from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=156546 and also using kisMAC. I'm almost afraid to try upgrading up to 10.5.7......

    No luck with iDeneb 1.5 (10.5.7). Even tried with "kernal=voodoo" which is the kernal I'm pretty sure that kalyway defaults to. So I'll try updating Kalyway from 10.5.2 once it's done re-installing.....

    It's funny because I just finished downloading iDeneb 1.5 (pretty sure it's 10.5.7 because the rar is "iDeneb 1.5 1057".) I remember the iDeneb 1.3 worked out of the box except sound and WIFI (which was the reason for going with Kalyway). I'll give that a try! Ok, so I did have a 10.5.7 iDeneb, but when it boots up to the installer, it doesn't see the hard drive..... I'll try deleting the current partitions and see if it works. Although I shouldn't need too.....

    CPU: Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core processor T2370 1.73GHz, 1 MB L2, 533MHz FSB Memory: 1gig (2x512) WIFI: Atheros ar5007eg HD: 120gb SATA Video: Mobile Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 Ethernet: Realtek 10/100 Modem: Unknown USB: 4x 2.0 CD/DVD Writer Audio: Realtek So I got Kalyway 10.5.2 to install, and it took a long time to install, but it did install and booted fine the first time. Sound works out of the box. A nice added bonus is that the sound wheel works! Sleep and Restart work (didn't check shutdown). Laptop doesn't sleep when closing lid (never did like that in winblows, but now it just seems wierd). Upon reboot, video went screwy (mostly white with a strip that slowly goes black). Rebooted with CD and did repair permissions on the drive, and it booted fine. It's not seeing the WIFI, but I know I have to grab drivers for it. The drivers for it are kinda flaky so I'm going to play with that a bit. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su...mily=1073768663 <----- Link to toshiba's support site for this model.
  7. Ok, so I'm wondering if anyone has gotten any OSX installs working on this laptop. I've tried alot, and I did at one point find something that worked but couldn't get WIFI to work. Anyone had any luck? -Todd
