  1. If you're located in NZ, you can do worse than MacSellerDirect. They import Macs in bulk and offer excellent discounts on the entire Mac range, usually between 10% and 15% on the NZ Apple Store.
  2. Okay, I've got it to the point where as long as I repair permissions before I shut down or restart the PC, I can get back into OSX no problem. If I don't, I get the same locking up problem above... anyone got any ideas?
  3. If you can boot from your old HD, you can use iBackup to backup your apps, etc. Then you can reinstall the new HD and restore everything.
  4. osX86 Reinstall Guide?

    You can either use something like SuperDuper to create a bootable backup to a seperate HD, or you can use iBackup to backup individual elements of the OS. There's a good tutorial at Mac Apper that you can find here. (Note that as of the time of this post, MacApper was down!) Hope this helps. Cheers!
  5. Thought the problem was solved : followed this guide... http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=261280 But now every time I reboot, I have to follow the same procedure... reboot once without onboard network enabled, repair permissions, reboot, enable network, load OSX. Not good! Anyone know how I can make the system detect this permanently? Cheers, cell
  6. [HELP] Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx

    I got the networking to work, but only on every other boot : http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...t=0#entry346804 The solution I found might work for one of you... let me know!
  7. Hi, I have installed my Compaq DC7100 with Jas' 10.4.8 SSE3 install with Semthex 8.8.1 DVD, fully patched and this completed successfully. I then installed the 'reload koolkal 10.4.9 combo update intel sse3 8.9.1 & 8.8.1', selecting 8.9.1 and this worked also. I've now got everything working, except for networking. The DC7100 has a Broadcom NetExtreme BCM5751 Gigabit Ethernet onboard. I followed the guide here : http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry315849 but OSX freezes during boot at this point : I have checked that my card's vendor ID is in the info.plist file and it is : 14e4 1677 Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get networking running under 10.4.9 on a Broadcom? Thanks, Cell ***This was the original problem, but the error that shows in the screenshot is the intermittent error described below ***
  8. Applescript Issues

    I also get the following error in my log when I run the AppleScript as an app : 2007-03-01 22:51:26.316 NZBDownload.app[321] CFLog (21): dyld returns 2 when trying to load /System/Library/Components/AppleScript.component/Contents/MacOS/AppleScript
  9. Applescript Issues

    Hi, I've been using scripts both within iTunes and as saved .app files for the past few weeks, but recently something updated or installed that seems to have broken both of these methods of running scripts. If I open the script in the Editor, it runs fine, but trying any method external to the editor just does nothing. There isn't even an error message! Can anyone offer some advice? I've tried repairing permissions and restarting, but that didn't help! (Oh, I'm using HotISO 10.4.6 updated to 10.4.8 in case that helps!) Cheers, cell
  10. Networking has stopped functioning

    All fixed! Rebooting with the router off and then plugging it back in fixed the problem.
  11. Hi, I have been using my OSX86 box for about a month. I installed the Jas 10.4.6 install and performed the 10.4.8 update which worked fine. Today, my machine told me I had to reset in a message overlayed on my screen. I did this, and since, have not been able to connect to the internet. I also have two new network connections in my network preferences that I didn't have before. Disabling both of these has no effect. en0 (my original connection) also shows as connected, but I get no HTTP traffic. I can use VNC to connect from the Mac to my PC, and I can browse network shares between the two. I tried repairing disk permissions and (just in case an Apple update changed anything) reapplying the Broadcom network driver I installed when I first got the machine running. Can anyone help? Cheers, cell
  12. About This Mac Screenshots

    Running on an HP Compaq DC7100S with 1Gb of RAM, 1x40Gb and 1x320Gb HDD and nothing else! Note the Pentium 4 HT shows as 2 x 4.3Ghz chips... Installed HotISO 10.4.7 and used the Jas SSE2 10.4.8 update. Everything runs smoothly and I love it! My PC barely even gets switched on these days!
  13. USB Drive Not Working In OSX

    I tried both ways - booting and then plugging it in and also booting with it plugged in. Neither way detected the drive. How exactly can I tell if my USB ports are compatible? Is there a way in OSX to detect whether the VMWare USB interface has been picked up at all?
  14. Hi, I'm currently running OSX 10.4.6 (HOTiSO) under VMWare Server installed on Ubuntu 6.10. (If anyone's interested, I found performance to be approximately 50% better than running VMWare Workstation under Windows XP!) However, even though I've added a USB device to the VM, whenever I plug my USB flash drive in, it doesn't appear in OSX. It mounts correctly in Ubuntu, but I can't see it in OSX. If it's any help, it didn't work in the Windows VM install I mention above either! All help greatly appreciated. Cheers, cell
  15. I did it!

    If you could send the link (PM or e-mail), I'd be grateful!
