  1. Thanks..... I'll try that I did it once, when my first choice OS was Windows, but the mouse was really hard to use at the boot selection screen! Have you experienced that!? it is almost too fast!
  2. Flash9 (beta) for Intel Mac

    If I try to play Flash games at fx. www.miniclip.com then every browser say that a lugin is missing! I have installed the latest Flash 9 Beta fra Adobe! If I set the browser to load via Rosetta then it does work, but it is slow AS HELL!? can I fix this!?
  3. The only way I can get dual booting to work is to push the F8 button really fast after I select OSX86 at the boot selection screen! I just find that so fustrating/irritation! I would just like to able to boot the OS that I want with the push of one button on the selection sceen! Is that possible!? Can I use a bootloader and still have the OSX86 as the main (default) OS???
  4. Hey...... I'm currently running OSX 10.4.7 on my hackintosh and it runs perfect. The only thing that I really miss is the games! So I was wondering if I can install Windows and boot into it from OSX86!? I mean so it as default boots into OSX86 and when I need to run windows, I can just select it from OSX86, and it boots (maybe restarts) into Windows!? Is that possible - is there such a program/bootloader!? I know I can just use the boot selection screen built into Windows, but the whole point is that I would like it to boot into OSX86 as default, because that's what I use the most - and when I need to run Windows (mainly for games) then I can choose to do that!
  5. Safe to use real apple ID/registration?

    Well it isn't really a problem after all. You can just download them from the software update as you do not need an Apple ID to do that! Downloaded the new Aperture updates, and it runs so good and stable now!
  6. Safe to use real apple ID/registration?

    Okay! Thanks - I'll try that!
  7. Safe to use real apple ID/registration?

    How do I download the updates for Aperture!? It says that I need an Apple ID!? I'm running OSX86, and I not crazy about the idea of registrering a pirate product!? Can I use anothers ID and download the updates!? Or can I create an Apple ID but not registre my copy of OSX!?
  8. 1. Reinstall it, make sure you choose the correct updates (SSE2 or SSE3 and AMD or Intel) 2. Boot from the install DVD and write: cp /mach_kernel /Volumes/name/ in the terminal 3. Use a partition program (Partition Magic, LiveCD, Knoppix ect.) to set your partition to active/boot 4. Boot with F8 and write: mount /Volumes/name -setBoot Now it should boot into the password screen in OSX86! 5. Delete the ATI and GeForce .kexts, except from the ones for X1000 (and ATINDRV)! 6. Edit the remaining ATI kexts, using the 'Boris Method' 7. Delete the AppleHWSensor 8. Remove the .mkexts and .kextchace 9. Reboot Now it should boot into OSX86 (password screen) and the resolution ect should work! 10. Install 10.4.7 update 11. Use simpleQuartz to get 2D Quartz Extreme to work (if your gfx card support it!?) Reboot and you are all set. At least that's what worked for me - and I have had the same problems you had! Cheers.........
  9. Have you tried to boot in -x mode? Then you can delete all the ATI and GeForce kexts - except from the ones for X1000 and ATINDRV! Then reboot your machine! I also copied the kernel from the install DVD to the right volume and mounted the right volume at the boot screen (F8) The only 'problem' that I have in OSX86, is the fact that the graphics chip is not recognised as X1600!?
  10. How stable is your OSx86 machine?

    I'm running OSX 10.4.7 on the following machine: Intel Pentium D920 Dual Core Intel 945G chipset 2GB RAM 2x 160GB SATA harddrives (Seagate) 256MB Asus EAX1600XT Silent Sigmatel 9220 HD Audio (Sound Blaster Audigy HD) My machine is fully compitable with OSX, and I have not experienced any slowdowns, crashes or other problems. I have QE/CI, 2D QE, rotation, mirror and full resolution via DVI. In Xbench I get scores between 98-105, and that's very good! I actually just deleted my Windows partition, because I really don't use it anymore. The few games I play are available on mac - I use it the most for DTP and graphics in general. I think that OS X is by far the better OS - it is stable (no blue screens, virus, spyware ect.) It just superb!
  11. problem Booting into OSX with CHAIN0 method

    I have had that problem myself. I fexed it by copying the kernel to the correct volume and then I hit F8 right after I select OSX from the OS select screen!
  12. Azureus won't start!

    I'm trying to get the latest build of Azureus to work on 10.4.7 - but every time I start it, the icon just bounces a few times in the dock and disappears. In the console it says: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no swt-pi-carbon-3232 in java.library.path at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary(ClassLoader.java:1682) at java.lang.Runtime.loadLibrary0(Runtime.java:822) at java.lang.System.loadLibrary(System.java:992) at org.eclipse.swt.internal.Library.loadLibrary(Library.java:123) at org.eclipse.swt.internal.carbon.OS.<clinit>(OS.java:20) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.createDisplay(Display.java:943) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.create(Display.java:923) at org.eclipse.swt.graphics.Device.<init>(Device.java:118) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.<init>(Display.java:754) at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.<init>(Display.java:745) at org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.mainwindow.SWTThread.<init>(SWTThread.java:77) at org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.mainwindow.SWTThread.createInstance(SWTThread.java:58) at org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.mainwindow.Initializer.<init>(Initializer.java:108) at org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main.<init>(Main.java:147) at org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main.main(Main.java:162) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(NativeMethodAccessorImpl.java:39) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.jav :25) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:585) at apple.launcher.LaunchRunner.run(LaunchRunner.java:88) at apple.launcher.LaunchRunner.callMain(LaunchRunner.java:50) at apple.launcher.JavaApplicationLauncher.launch(JavaApplicationLauncher.java:52) Does anyone know how to fix this? I have updated to the latest build of Java (software update) Other java programs, such as netbanking ect are working the way the are supposed to! The same goes for other bittorrent clients!?!
  13. Can Apple 'see' whether or not you are using a 'real' Mac or is it safe to get an acoount on a Hackintosh (OSX86)??? I was thinking of using iTunes Music Store and for that I need a .Mac Account!
  14. I want to make an image of my OSX86 partition/install-DVD, but when I choose my 'BACKUP' partition (HFS+) it gives me an error: Unable to create 'OSX86.dmg' - permission denied!? What can I do to fix this??
  15. I currently considering to delete my windows partition, because everything just works perfect in OSX86 now. My system is fully compitable and EVERYTHING is supported And I'm really beginning to like OSX(86), much better than Windows, so I would maybe like to delete the partition and add the extra space to my OSX86 partition! Is that possible?
