  1. Does someone know anything about power managing ? I'm kinda new in this world but manage to install SL with almost everything working... all i'm missing is TrackPad scrolling (tap kinda work after a wake.. wierd.. LOL) and battery life.. gosh SL is eating my battery so fast.. in Windows at 100% i could last 2.5 hours.. and in OSX, at 100% i have 1 hour. wtf ? Can you guys help ? thanks! EDIT: Oh yeah.. im on M1530 ,T7500, 2.2Ghz, 4GB RAM, 8600M GT.
  2. Alright alright, I know I have Google.. you don't have to do this over here.. it's newbie zone. Anyway, I figured out sound with VoodooHDA and Sleep/Restart with OSXRestart.kext and SleepEnabler.kext !! All I need now is a way to cool down this Dell... the fan are always blowing at max... and its hot as hell.. I used to have temp with Coolbook but I think I changed something and now, I can't see them anymore. Oh yeah, and scrolling on this trackpad... even 1-finger scroll could be good... LOL So nice to have Sleep yipeeee haha. and sound back also LOL
  3. I gave up about putting Chameleon on EFI, I put it on Snow' partition and get done with it... start working with the kext now... I used the ones that was on DellSnowCD but I am still missing features like touchpad, sleep, reboot, and audio in. I used a DSDT somewhere on this forum and now shutdown is working but I lost audio (in and out). Can you guys help me ? Thanks! Dell M1530, T7550 2.2Ghz, 8400M GS
  4. Mini 1018

    I think you better use the card 10v uses, should work better. Look over ebay! I'm looking for compatibilty for the 1012 ? How's this one? (sleep ? two finger scroll ?)
  5. http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/hewlet...bfc07281f7cen02 The model seems like to be 110-3018 .. the 110 on http://www.mymacnetbook.com/compatibility-chart/?chartid=20 say everything should be good without Ethernet and Sleep. Can somebody confirm ? Because this one is the (3018). for most recent SL! or dont mind 10.5 if its more stable? tho i really like SL's new feature like Spaces, Exposé, thanks! i really appreciate! im sorry for another noob question =(
  6. I have manage to install vanilla OSX 10.6.0 then updated to 10.6.4 on my Dell XPS M1530... I have also installed Windows 7 prior installing OSX and the usual bootmgr got broke and then I fix it with the Windows CD. And now, I have two working OS but can't get Charmeleon on EFI to boot them without my boot cd (DellSnowCD something like that). And I think my shutdown/reboot/sleep problems are link to DSDT thing which is part of Chameleon. Can you guys help me to install it and where can I find the good kexts to put in the Extra folder ? Thanks for your help!
  7. i5 750 ? with P55... looks good! Take a look at tony's guide and you're all good. I'm no pro about the rest but everything looks fine! Make sure all your stuff (dvd and hard drive) are SATA

Thanks in advance for you help EDIT: Yes I know about the Blu-Ray state in OSX, it's for Windows. And would the On-board LAN work ? Or I'll have to put a pci network card in? Because, I might do some SLI-ing (for Windows) and this will take all the pci slot =/
  9. I want to build a strong computer with this MB/i7... could you guys guide me through the other stuff also? What would be a good GFX ? and RAM ? Looking forward 1GB GTX and 6GB of RAM. EDIT: I tried something but it's my first time...

The software running from Windows? Otherwise, could it work only for DVD Burning/Reading stuff leaving the BD part when I boot on Windows?) Intel Core i7 860 Quad Core Processor Lynnfield LGA1156 2.8GHZ Hyperthreading 8MB Cache Retail Box (the cpu ) Gigabyte P55M-UD2 mATX LGA1156 P55 DDR3 2PCI-E 2PCI SATA2 RAID Sound GLAN Motherboard (i think something is wrong with this choice... wont have enought SATA port i guess.. for HDx2/DVD and is that dual channel ram only?!) Enermax EMD525AWT MODU82+ 525W ATX12V V2.3 24PIN Power Supply (i heard these are really quiet.. want the tower to run really quiet) XFX Radeon HD 4870 750MHZ 1GB 3.6GHZ GDDR5 PCI-E 2XDVI HDCP Video Card (is that ok? or nvidia is better? osx compatibility wise) Corsair XMS3 TR3X6G1600C8 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 8-8-8-24 Core i7 Memory Kit (i guess any ram could work... are these strong enough?) Antec Three Hundred Mini Tower Gaming Case 300 ATX 3X5.25 6X3.5INT No PS Front USB & Audio (does the Mini state change anything? i picked it randomly.. could change the case i dont mind.) and some random Network PCI Card.
