  1. I keep getting kernel panic on any release I try. so, for now, I'm gonna stick to trying to get the iPortable 10.6.2 working. My hardware: Intel Core2Duo 2.5Ghz nVidia Geforce 8600m External USB drive with iPortable installation What I have tried: -v -x cpus=1 busration=20 cpus=2 SEARCHING THIS FORUM & GOOGLE! various other boot options various combos of all the above. (IE: busratio=20 -v -x) I am just not sure what to try next. I know the image copied fine, since it will boot on my work laptop. If anyone can help, I would be extrememly grateful! mm0

    Are you sure you have Natit .01 installed? I have heard of the adapter working on .02...might be worth a look... mm0

    xalexas- make sure that you are using Natit .01. I have the 6600, and it works fine for me. see my post above, which outlined my exact steps that I did to get it to work. Is your card PCI-E or AGP? Mine is AGP. mm0

    Natit for Nvidia with dual display

    I'm not really a gamer, so honestly couldn't tell you. I haven't tried much of anything at this point except Parallels (which was a pain to install since I'm on an AMD64, had to hack that also!). So far, the experience has been good though. mm0

    Natit for Nvidia with dual display

    Here is exactly what I did to get this to work for me (I have an nVidia GeForce 6600 with one DVI and one VGA): 1) Install from Jas 10.4.8 WITH the NV40 kexts installed 2) Add my device ID of my graphics card to the following: NVDANv40Hal.kext NVDAResman.kext GEForce.kext *not sure if I did this correctly, however, when I added my Device ID, I notice that all the existing device ID's had a trailing 0xfff0ffff, so exactly what I added was 0x00f210de&0xfff0ffff 3) Delete the file AGPGart from /System/Library/Extensions (I tried not doing this, and it does not work without this step) 4) Copy Natit V.01 (this is the only one that worked for me due to 1 DVI, 1 VGA) to the System/Library/Extensions folder. 5) open terminal and do the following: sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/*; sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/* and sudo rm -f /System/Library/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache 5) Reboot I then backed up the changed kexts, so that when I reinstalled OSX on my large HD (which I just did), I didn't have to change them, just replace. Hope this helps, I now have full resolution on dual monitors (1680 X 1050 and 1024 X 768) mm0

    Instead of: sudo chown -R root:wheel Natit.kext sudo chmod -R 755 Natit.kext try: sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/Natit.kext sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/Natit.kext This is what I had to do... mm0

    Oh yeah, forgot some details...the GeForce card is 256Meg, and I have full resolution on both screens (1680X1050, and 1024X768). The only thing that is not working is the QE/CI...thanks again for any help! Steve

    Natit for Nvidia with dual display

    First off thanks to everyone that has worked on this project...now for the question! I installed my new card hoping to have QE/CI and dual screen enabled. I have dual screen just fine, but not QE/CI...anybody know why? I have an AGP GeForce 6600 (nVidia). both are listed as not supported. Help Please! Thanks, mm0

    Parallels on a dell laptop

    Yes, I was able to wite, but it was no different than accessing the same network drive from within OS X, I am able to write to it from there also. Remember, this is a network drive, not a local drive.

    Parallels on a dell laptop

    I have a dell 6400/E1505. I put parallels on it to try it out, and it worked great. Not quite native speeds but definately usable. The only thing I had a problem with is the mouse. It is a bit hard to control. But, the one thing I wanted was to be able to map a hard drive, and that worked great.
