  1. Hi guys! I'm back! I actually now got Snow Leopard installed on my computer. I got 10.6.2 installed, but now I need to update to 10.6.8, can some one tell me how to go about this? Thanks! I have an AMD System so I know it's a little different
  2. Ok, so I'm running iDeneb 10.5.5 and I have changed SystemVerison.plist to say that I'm running 10.5.8, I was wondering how to upgrade my installation to 10.5.8 or fix Safari. Last time I tried an update, it just froze (I think it was one specifically for iDeneb), and I can't remember what happened with the official update... but if I could avoid updating to solve this problem, that would be great! My problem with Safari is that every time I try to open a new tab, it crashes. I'm sure it's because some file is missing that is in 10.5.8 that isn't in 10.5.5, so is it possible to get Safari to work correctly? I love Safari, and although I can use another web browser, I would love to use Safari If you guys need it, I could give you guys the crash report I would love to get Safari working, thanks guys!
  3. Still getting that restart loop
  4. Already on it Hopefully it will be finished downloading tomorrow.
  5. Ok, I'll look up the kernels How do I choose to boot it when I find it? I meant if it required PAE to run. My AMD Sempron SI-42 does not have PAE (It's not the best processor, it doesn't even have dual cores) Also, thanks for the reply, your one of the first to reply to a thread of mine that has actually helped Edit: I can't find a list of Kernels Edit 2: Sigh... Apparently from what I found in here... the i stands for Intel only...
  6. Hi guys! I have been running leopard for a while and I have noticed that it is slowly becoming more outdated. So last night I downloaded Hazard's Snow Leopard 10.6.6i AMD/Intel. This morning it finished downloading but when I tried to boot it I got some message saying: Not an Intel Platform: Restart Fix not applied Then it restarts. I have a Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976 Laptop Hopefully someone can respond? No one has ever responded to any of my posts on here, maybe it was because it was leopard. Now I'm trying to get Snow Leopard. Thanks! Edit: I just thought of something horrible, and I really would like it not to be... but does Snow Leopard require PAE? Please tell me it doesn't because otherwise, I'm going to have to stick with Leopard
  7. Well, I finally got Mac OS X running on my laptop, it has a few a few glitches and all, but I'm happy! The only problem is, that being with my laptops very bad incompatibility (Yeah, I got the worse one sadly... I wish I would have known this when I got it... my dad wouldn't let me get the Acer because this one had more hdd space), I can't really upgrade to a better version of OS X. Right now I'm running OS X 10.5.5 (But I changed SystemVersion.plist to make it seem like 10.5.8), the software available is becoming smaller and smaller with Lion coming out. (Unless there is a way to get App Store on Leopard and I haven't found it...). My question is to you guys, what's your favorite software that you guys run that is compatible with 10.5.5 (Actually, most software with 10.5.8 works too). I already have: -Firefox 5 -Colloquy -CyberDuck -Illumination Software Creator -Echofon -iTunes 10.5 (For iOS 5, sadly, Wireless syncing requires 10.6.8) -PwnageTool (Jailbreak) -DiskAid I would like to be able to add to my list
  8. I just installed Mac OS X finally after about 2 years of giving it a try (well I gave up for a little bit but started again today) but the problem is, it's kind of an old version (10.5.5), How can I update safely to 10.5.8 (I'm already downloading the combo update, but not going to run it until you guys tell me what to do, I heard it's not safe to run it by itself without special steps). Also, I have already Backed up the Kexts and is it safe to run other updates from Software Update and not just combo updates, or don't use Software Update for any updates? Thanks guys, I really want Safari 5 and all the great software
  9. So I was reading on installing OS X and they said You need to know your CPU, chipsets, south bridge, SATA/PATA, hdd type, video Well I know my CPU is an AMD Sempron SI-42, my video card is an ATI Radeon. But I don't know the other stuff, someone said I needed to pick the right chipset driver when I customize my install, but I don't know what to pick since I have no idea what my chipset is or what a chipset really is. Can someone help me figure out this stuff, I have an Toshiba L455D-S5976 Laptop that I got for Christmas and I am trying to put iDeneb 10.5.5 on it.
  10. Update: I feel I have gotten farther. I deleted the old entry and chose the EFI one, and I rebooted and choose that option. To my wonderful suprise I got the wonderful chameleon boot screen. I then went and choose to do the verbose and it got to starting Darwin and rebooted I have a feeling its because of my AMD processor. I chose the AMD patch, and no additional kernels. I was told you wasn't suppose to choose the patch and an AMD Kernel. I really need help on this guys.
  11. Ok, so after Tiger not really working out I decided to use my last DVD and download iDeneb Leopard (I think it was 10.5.6). I have Windows already installed. So I created a partition in disk management and went into iDeneb to start installation. I formatted as Mac OS Journaled and customized my installation. I rebooted and I got a boot0 error. So I put in my Win 7 DVD and did startup repair. It repaired and I could get into Windows 7. I downloaded EasyBCD 2.0 and chose to add a Mac OS X (MBR) entry. I restarted the computer and chose the mac option, to my suprise the boot loader came up. I went to the partition with Mac installed and put in -v. Nothing came up and it restarted back to the Windows Boot Loader (After the BIOS screen). I chose Windows and here I am posting this post. Please help
  12. Ok, so I want to install Mac OS X Leopard over my existing Tiger install. I do know that when you install Linux (and GRUB) that if you erase it, it won't boot. Does this apply to OSx86 I will be using the Kalyway AMD SSE2 SSE3 Intel install DVD.
  13. Ok, so I have a Toshiba L455D-S5976 and I want to dual boot it with Mac OS X and I would like to use Tiger (I can go to leopard when I confirm this all works). I have Windows 7 already installed and I already shrunk down my C: shrunk down. I created a blank NTFS partition (it seems to create a extended one) My Partition layout so far goes like this 1. Hidden 100mb Partition by Windows 7 2. C: 3. Data (My new NTFS Partition) 4. Toshiba Recovery I would go ahead and install but I would like some opinions on the hardware options, I am going to be using the JaS 10.4.8 AMD/Intel DVD. I also know that Wireless will not work OOTB (Its a Realtek RTL8187SE) but I heard there are drivers I download. I just want to know what I am in for, and what I will need to do to get this working. Here is a page with the specs. http://laptops.toshiba.com/laptops/satelli...450/L455D-S5976
  14. Well I got it to work finally. Just need to get sound and networking working, but I would be fine without it. I had to boot up the installation disk and open disk utility. I then repaired the permissions. It seems like every file had messed up permissions.
