    Hi, same problem here! did you fix it?
  2. Hi, I've tried many distros, tried installing from USB stick, then from external DVD, tried NetbookBottMaker... Nothing worked. All I get is MacOS booting, showing the apple logo and then restarting. I don't know about EFI strings, Kexts, and really don't know much about what customize options to choose in the install, but the ones I tried, never worked. Any clues? Thanks!
  3. I've searched all over the internet and asked Mac users, but no one seems to know any keyboard shortcut to zoom a window. It's a pretty useful function but aiming at the + button is not so easy, and triggering it from the keyboard would be nice. Thanks!
  4. Hi, I have NTFS and HFS+ partitions on my disk. I want to grow and possibly move or merge the HFS+ partitions. I tried iPartition but it doesn't even recognize any partition on the disk. Is it because I'm using GUID partition table? Haven't tried iPartition 3 or other tools. Any recomendation? Thanks!
  5. Hi, I installed iAtkos 10.5.7, I had it running perfectly with a resolution of 1366x768. I changed the monitor, now I use 1280x1024, and most of the time it'll boot to a light blue screen. I can hear exposé if I move the mouse to a screen corner, so I know the system is running, but the screen shows nothing but a plain light blue. If I boot in safe mode, and then boot again normally, it works. But the next boot it'll fail again. Do you know why is this? how can I fix it? I installed iAtkos selecting customize and checking "EFI strings for nVidia: DVI -DVI" which is the outputs my card has, and "Drivers - Nvidia - GTS 200" which is the closest to my card there was. Do I have to install anything else? Thanks!
  6. Hi! I had my iATKOS 7 OSX86 working perfectly. I changed to a new monitor and set the video resolution to 1280x1024 from the Display Settings pane. It went to a lightblue screen of death (LBSOD from now on) no problem, it did this every time I switched resolution, but after a reboot, everything worked. Now it didn't. I managed to boot only once from the Darwin prompt with "Graphics Mode"="1280x1024x32" Then I decided to edit com.apple.Boot.plist and add the same command but as a plist entry. Now I can't even boot with graphics ok from the darwin prompt. I tried lower resolutions, 1024, 800, different bit depths and different refresh frequencies ( mine is VESA 3 ) but nothing gets more than a LBSOD. The os boots ok, as I can hear Exposé complaining when I move the mouse to a screen corner, and I still can reboot with control-option-F12, only the graphics are not showing. I tried logging into single user mode, did a sudo nano on com.apple.Boot.plist, but I can't save it because it says "Write only filesystem" Is there a way to write com.apple.Boot.plist from single user mode? Is it possible to access the filesystem not read only? Any alternative to fix this? thanks! PS: this is the final version of my com.apple.Boot.plist with the graphics mode string added: Is it possible that I screwed it with tabs or whitespace? I just copied a key-string pair and modified it. Now that I see it pasted here, it does have a strange tab indentation, but can that make it not work? I copied the file to the desktop, edited it with textedit, and copied it back to SystemConfiguration.

  7. EDIT: Sorry, this doesn't belong to this (Snow) forum. Isn't there a 'delete post' button? Hi! I had my iATKOS 7 OSX86 working perfectly.

  8. Hey thanks for the tip! I'm tampering with the screen resolution and getting light blue screens of death more often than not May it be a concidence or not, I have Logitech PC keyboard which has an Eject icon painted over the F12 key. It's supposed to be pressed along with the 'Fn' key like in laptops, but I never used it in windows. Damn Fn key, it's taking the space of a right oprion key
  9. Thanks guys, I guess it was just the hardware. I installed iATKOS on my new intel PC without any problems.
  10. Hi, I'm trying to install OSX86 but each time my hard drive isn't recognized at all, nor any of its partitions. Any clue on how to overcome this? I don't know if changing the kernel or adding kexts could fix this, but I don't really know if I even have the chance to do it, because early at the start of any of the installs, it says "choose where to install OSX" and no drive shows up. My computer is a Compaq Presario F755LA with this Specs: Processor AMD Mobile Sempron 3600+ / 2.0 GHz ( it's SSE3, I think ) Sata disk Western Digital NVidia GeForce 7000M / nForce 610M I tried this OSX86 distros: XxX 10.5.6 iATKOS 7 Kalyway 10.5.2 iPC 10.5.6 iDENEB 1.4 - 10.5.6 Thanks in advance!
