  1. Hello. I have had my dual boot hackintosh/XP system working for about 6 months now. Most of the time I end up just using OSX because its faster, but the other day I tried to boot back up into XP to play a windows game and it shut off halfway through the boot process. I figured out that if I shut off my network card driver it works. If I enable it it shuts off immidately. The wierd part is it works fine in osx. Ive tried eraseing and reinstalling the drivers a couple of times and that didn't work. Ive also uninstalled zone alarm, avast, wireshark, virtualbox, and vmware. still nothing. I can't wrap my head around why it would do this. The only thing I can think of is mabye the patched dsdt is playing havoc with windows? I thought it only affected OSX though. I have a dg965ry intel core2 duo mobo with built in gigibit eithernet. im running XP and retail OSX leoppard 10.6.3. OSX is in a seperate HD I also have applied almost all the hacks in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url].
  2. so im trying to install osx in in vmware with the retail disk from my moms new imac. im not sure if this will work or not the tutorials are sketchy on this point. its in vmware player right now but it cant boot from the install disk. it says "operating system not found" it may just be able to see what xp sees which is the windows support that has bootcamp and the mac xp drivers. is there any way around this? do i need to burn an iso of the disk on my mac and transfer it over to the windows machene to get this to work?
  3. can i use my own legal coppy of osx?

    never mind i figured it out: http://asendure.wordpress.com/2006/10/01/o...-server-amd-64/
  4. i have a intel core2 duo dg965ry and ive been thinking about installing osx. i dont however like the idea of running the pirated hacked version that is running arround on the internet. is there a way of patching a legaly purchased coppy to run on a non mac intel? i dont care that much about rosetta because i have a g4 to run all my classic programs.
