  1. Is Mountain Lion compatible with this hardware? If so which one?

    So I should really stick with Snow Leopard with this computer? That's a shame. I wish I could at least use Lion. So can someone point me to a guide to follow to make a Snow Leopard install USB and to get everything working on AMD hardware? I should just give up on Mountain Lion and Lion right? For now?
  2. Is Mountain Lion compatible with this hardware? If so which one?

    So basically my setup won't work fully with Mountain Lion? What won't work? If I buy this card http://www.ebay.com/itm/PNY-Geforce-G210-1-GB-PCIE-DDR3-Video-Adapter-VCG2101D3XPB-/170967597103?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item27ce76802f Is that the G210 that will work oob? I just don't know what I need to do to have it working fully. What would I need to do?
  3. Hi. I just bought a setup on eBay. I have a Macbook Pro, but need a desktop to run Windows only software, and this Macbook isn't the fastest ever. This is the setup I bought. http://www.ebay.com/itm/330852003167 I need to know which OS X Hackintosh disk I should use, (which distribution and version) for installing Mountain Lion, and what will I need to do to get everything functioning? If not everything will function right, what won't function 100%? If I can't get mac working on it, I will just keep windows only. But if I can get OS X on it with a hackintosh disk, then I will have it as the main system and run windows inside of a virtual machine inside the OS X. Not a fan of Windows but I run it because I need it for my software. And this is the ram I bought for the computer http://www.ebay.com/itm/120998070818
  4. I have sucsessfully been able to boot into all three systems, mac, windows, and linux, using grub (linux boot loader). But when I choose to boot into mac, it says press any key within 2 seconds to choose boot device. I would prefer not to have to do that every time and especially within 2 seconds. But I've tried everything to be able to get rid of it and boot into osx a different way. So I need to know if there is a way to make the 2 seconds become something like 20 or 30 seconds. Is there any program for editing grub that will do that. I know it most likely has to be done in linux, I'm fine with that. but I'm trying to sell the desktop and it'll be hard to sell with that. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance!
  5. I own an Acer Aspire Revo 1600, also known as the R1600. I would like to dual boot OSx86 with Windows 7 Home Premium (already installed). I need to know what version of OSx86 will work the best with my computer. I need links to the drivers for my computer to get it working, and I need a boot loader installer that will dual boot my systems and I need to know how to install it. I currently have 10.5 (leopard) versions: Leo4all, iDeneb, iAtkos, iPC, and Kalyway (I don't know what versions of them they are). Which one will work and what are the drivers that I need to get it working to it's best. It would be helpful if you could provide links to the drivers or links to other things that will help me. Do whatever you want to do. I really appreciate any help! Thanks in advance!
  6. I have a Linksys WMP 11 V4 PCI card with the chipset InProComm. I have searched for months for drivers and can't find anything. Can anyone help me get this to work? Thanks in advance!
  7. Thank you Rod Smith for your reply. I really appreciate it. I was thinking, I think, from what I understood from what you said, that you can have grub as the default boot loader, and you have the usual entries, Linux, and Windows. But I think you said that you can have an entry that you can pick that will boot the mac boot loader. In my case, that would be chameleon. I want to be able to boot into grub, to boot into linux and windows, and then, by using grub, I would like to be able to boot into the mac boot loader to boot into my mac system without using the cd everytime I want to boot into it (so slow.) Is that what you said? Is this posible? How do I do it? Thanks! I really really really appreciate all of your help!
  8. I need it to be able to write to any drive, whether it being mac, linux, or windows. I have grub installed currently, and I can't boot into mac without a cd and it's slow. So I need a boot loader that can boot all three. I have tried rEFIt but it won't let me write to a non mac drive. And grub is on a non mac drive. Is there a way to use refit and write it to a non mac drive, writing over grub. Thanks for the help!
  9. Refit is a boot loader designed for macs to triple boot, I guess. I still need help. Anyone? Thanks again!
  10. After weeks of fighting to get back into my osx86 mac on my dell dimension 4300, I finally did. I did using an iPC leopard disk to boot into my mac. Currently, on the computer, I have three operating systems on my computer: Windows 7, Ubuntu, and Mac OS X Leopard. I would like a boot loader to boot all three of them. I tried to install Refit. But it didn't show up at the start up, grub did. Is there a way that I can make the master boot record on the mac hard drive with refit? Or is there a way to write the refit to the hard drive with GRUB on it? I just want to see refit when I boot up into my computer so I can boot into all of them (not at the same time, of course.) Can anyone please help me. I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
