  1. I just did the ghost -fni -ia -ib and it booted right up from the clone afterwards. Awesome! Thanks, Ronald! I really needed to clone/ghost the drive, because I was running out of space, though. Now I have a partition on the new drive that is exactly the same size as the old one, and lots of unused space on that drive that I can't get to. I need one larger partition for the system drive, though... the stuff I need to install needs to go on the system drive. Disk Utility doesn't let me resize it. Any suggestions? Is there something like Partition Magic for Mac OS X? Thanks!
  2. I haven't tried this yet, since I just got a Quadro4 900 to play with today (and wanted to check upfront what kind of trouble I'm in for), but I found this: http://themacelite.wikidot.com/kext-mod Sounds as if this is an explanation about how to resolve the Kernel Panic you are getting. If everything goes right, then I'll try this this weekend myself - but I'm still on JaS 10.4.6 (...downloading 10.4.8 takes DAYS on my end). Good luck!
  3. I just got a new Dell D620 today and installed JaS 10.4.6 on an external USB drive. I initially got Kernel Panics upon DVD boot, but was able to get around it by turning stuff off in the BIOS that is not absolutely needed (will have to look into what in particular prevented it from booting, but for now, the goal was to get the OS on the drive the get started - I even turned off Dual Core support, although I think it should work with that on). I was able to install to the external drive and the OS is on that drive now, but I can't get it to boot from it although I set the USB drive as the first boot device before all others. When I boot, it just grabs Windows and ignores the external Mac drive. Anyway, I'll dig into this some more and will post the results if successful, but would appreciate if anybody has any input that could save me some time.
