  1. I'm trying to install SL on a brand new machine with the following config: Motherboard: Gigabyte EP45-UD3R Video: Gigabyte HD 850 1GB GDDR3 I can boot the installer through Chamelon with -v -f -x32. However, when the machine goes into graphics mode I get the attached image. Any thoughts? Thanks
  2. I'm building my first hack. I am a quite experienced builder of windows machines, but never a hack. I'll be upgrading an old system and have bought a motherboard and video card. But here is the thing, I'm moving overseas in 3 days. Where I'm going I'll likely have a very slow internet connection. I've got a few days of broadband to download everything I can that will likely help me. I own a mac mini with a 10.5.2 install and just upgraded it with the $29 leopard disk. I also have several windows machines, a ton of USB drives etc. I'm less worried about hardware costs than software (within reason), so what should be in my toolkit before I leave? Thanks. Here is my rig 1) Video Card - GIGABYTE GV-R485MC-1GI HD4850 2) Motherboard - GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R 3) Core 2 Quad 9550 4) DDR2 1066 x 8gb 5) 150GB SATA drive 6) 2x SATA DL DVD RW 7) Case, power supply etc. Thoughts? Thanks.
