  1. Compaq CQ42-138TU Pre-installation

    Looking like there's not much hope for a response here, but I'll bump the thread anyway, just in case someone feels like lending me a hand
  2. Hi all, My goal here is to install Mac OS X 10.6 (or 10.5, I guess) alongside my existing Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 installations on my HP/Compaq CQ42-138TU laptop. All I really want to be able to do with the installation is (in order of priority, highest to lowest): Run Xcode and related iOS dev tools Create Pages and Keynote documents with iWork '09 Access the net over WiFi Maybe run iMovie and iPhoto '11 too I'm aware that this laptop uses the Intel GMA 4500M chipset, which might be an issue, but I'd like to know exactly what the case is with that. Will I be able to run XCode and/or iWork? And will it run with QE and/or function at its native resolution? Also, what would be the best installation method to avoid harming my existing Win7 and Linux installations? Somewhat more detailed specs can be found here: https://www.mln.com.au/product/?itemID=896 Thanks in advance, HistoryMac.
  3. Leo4all reboot issue

    Okay, I'll try to cut to the chase. I have a PC (I think it's a custom build) with an ASUS Ai Pentium 4 motherboard in it and I'm trying to install Leo4all v2. I put the disk in, and the osx86 boot prompt thing comes up. That's fine, it's here the problem starts. Instead of going into the Darwin prompt like it should it just hangs for a few seconds on 'Loading HFS+ file: [/system//Library/Extensions/.mkext] from 422d690' then reboots the machine. I've tried -x, -v, -f, -s and cpus=1 to no avail. The machine has a 40GB Samsung HDD, 512MB RAM and a (I think) a NVidea GForce 200 Any suggestions (other than buy a Mac) Regards, HistoryMac
  4. Forcing Resolution Changes

    I too have tried many different methods too try and get this working, none have worked. I too have had to re-install Leopard multiple times. SwitchResX doesn't work for me, other methods I've seen do nothing or completely destroy the OS, forcing me to re-install. Below is my graphics/display info: Anyone have an answer?
  5. Do you think this will work with my laptop? Its a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 with an Intel GMA950 in it. From System profiler it shows this for my graphics/display info: My resolution is stuck at 1024x768 and my laptop has a 15" screen in it so it's looking pretty stretched and awful... Does anyone know how I might fix this? Thanks, HistoryMac
  6. Forcing Resolution Changes

    Yeah, I have the same issue with my Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 PSLB1A-02R01E. It has an Intel GMA950 in it. Everything looks stretched and ugly... If anyone can help, Please do!!
