    I think everyone has given up. I haven't heard anything in weeks.

    ATI mobility HD 3450. This is the most sought after ATI driver.

    Vitoid, that was actually aimed at HPMac. He asked how to get rid of a kext when OS X will no longer boot. It sounds like you can find the offending kext within the graphical user interface so it shouldn't be too bad to track down what happened to the battery meter. Which kexts did you change?

    http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=89659 This is the thread. It tells you how to install kexts though it's not too great at explaining how to remove them. Basically when Darwin loads, you type "-s" and then hit enter. Then you're in single user mode. This is the same thing as the terminal. You need to remove the offending kext. I will try to explain it without running the actual commands so bear with me. For each step, type what is in quotes and hit return. 1. "sudo -s" This logs you in as super user, you must type in your password after this 2. "mkdir /problemkexts/" This creates a directory to put our problem kexts in 3. "mv /System/Library/Extensions/name_of_kext.kext /problemkexts/" The mv is for move and this moves the kext to the directory we created 4. "rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext" I believe this clears the kextcache, but I could be mistaken. It's a necessary step. After you reboot, you should be good to go. In step 3, make sure you use the name of the kext that you are moving. If you are not sure of the name, you can change directories and list the names of all the kexts with the following commands: "cd /System/Library/Extensions/" and then "ls". There's probably a better writeup somewhere else, but this gives you the basic information.

    Next time the computer reboots, boot with the -s flag in order to boot in single user mode. Then you can remove the offending kext without reformatting. There's a thread somewhere about how to do it if you aren't too handy with the command line interface.

    Hackingtosh vs iMac, costing

    Except the hackintosh is a lot of work to put together and get working. Although it does offer an easier way to upgrade the hardware.

    Will you still buy the real deal?

    I'd rather use the real thing. The thing is that I don't have that kind of loot.

    With great power, comes great responsibility. Quite unfortunate to hear that power corrupted. We were all "noobs" once and the future of linux is in converting the masses not just the technologically savvy.
