  1. preloading kexts

    Hey everyone. i am perplexed with a yosemite install with clover. I get install up and going but on first reboot it crashes and cant read the crash. How do i get the kexts on the machine from this point? I was gonna try preloading into the installer but dont know what the ramifications are. Dell e6420 qm67 sandy bridge intel 3000 video. Thanks in advance.
  2. Bootdisk Utility

    Thanks for App CVAD....it works as advertised...made my life easier thats for sure. However, I have run into a couple of issues: 1. How do you circumnavigate the internet connection for the HD recovery. Or am I missing something? I get to the installation and it wont allow anything to install as it checks with Apple for a valid machine ID. 2. When I choose an ESD.DMG file for manual install it tells me its not valid and when I use you method of manual 7z (actually 7za is the latest) that program tells me the dmg files are not recognized as valid not matter which ones I choose...invalid format error. As of now I just use you tool to format the USB, but not putting anything on the second partition. I then go to my VBox and manually copy the distro from there. Again....Kudos to you my friend...I may just be lost looking for guidance. Peace Guido in Hawaii
  3. Hello All: I have a situation where my system gains time every time it goes to sleep and wakes up. I hate having to set it to GMT since I am on PST (-8 GMT). It is a single boot system, 100% OSX86...no dual boot to XP or anything else. Config is as follows: Celeron D 3.06 (Socket478) 1GB Dual Channel PC3200 ASRock P4Dual 120GB Maxtor SATA Sony 8X DVD-RW OSX86, Generic Installer Patch, and Maxxus 5c patch after install. I followed MAC Girl's advice on the GMT thing, but WTF...I am not dual booting. Any ideas? BTW: If I use a different OS it doesn't do it. Thanks in advance.
  4. System changes time after wakeup

    Yepper... It is weird. If it was losing time in all OS configs...piece of cake the battery. This....geez my hair is thin enough as it is.... Thanks though. Other than that.....Awesome OS. Looking at getting a MAC mini soon. Just to have a real Mac on hand. May even grab an older G4 too. Later

  7. Would you buy a Apple Mactel?

    Well I first want to say thanks to the Admins and everyone contributing to the X86 Project. This site is awesome and for the most part jerk free. The fact that OSX is designed for ease of use first, makes it key for the beginning computer user. Once reason (IMHO) that MACs are superior is that there has always been one family of hardware to work with and qualify. The x86 world, however more popular is plagued with untested , unreliable drivers. Then add Windows into the mix, well then..... security flaw central. End users are stuck playing catchup to the spyware and virus writers. If Apple plays it right, they will offer the OS to users and make sure that the hardware vendors stick to a qualifying process as strict as their own internal. I have wanted my own Gx for sometime since Darwin has been under the hood. Prices are the only reason I haven't. Now there is a chance to, but if the company restricts to their own equipment, the hobbyist is restricted to crack n' hack OSX. Bottom Line: The OS is superior, but the prices of hardware will keep me in Gatesville. (Speaking of which...doesn't Mr. Gates own quite a bit of Apple stock?)
  8. Build Your Own Mac for $199

    Smokes the G4 from what I can see. However, if you just wanted to "Get 'er done.." the ASRock is the way to go for now. If the goal is long term and as close to the Dev Kit, then D915GUXL is your ride. The TPM is there and it will give you a forward migration path for later on. I too am searching hi and low for that board as it is as close to dev as possible and eventually I will go to 775/DDR2. From what I understand it may even be possible to load NATIVE on the inTel, but no one has confirmed nor denied. Bottom line: For the money....ASRock is god for now. Peace
  9. Success! 100% Native.

    It would have to be a 915G (graphics on board)....GUXL is what I am looking for...found for $100 at a wholesaler. Peace Out.
  10. Build Your Own Mac for $199

    Has anyone actually bought the Intel D915GUXLK or D915GHALK boards and confirmed them working totally natively? I bought the ASRock board and it works fine, for a Socket478, but these two other boards have the TPM chip on them and are Socket775. I found them at Directron.com on sale for $105.99, but have found a bulk source that may sell individually. Will keep posted. Peace Out!
  11. Intel mobo with TPM

    Based on the info posted here I checked with my wholesaler catalog and came up with this for those with deep pockets.... ASI lists this as having the D915GUX mobo inside. LP571SU4-915UX Enlight ready made LCD PC http://us.enlightcorp.com/products/lcd_pc/...lcdpc&serial=11 Cheers Guido
  12. The Mac Dev motherboard?

    Well right off the bat I notice that you are pointing to an 865 Chipset not a 915.... On the right track though. Keep up the good work. Peace Out!
  13. Build Your Own Mac for $199

    Success!!!! I just ripped open this ASRock Mobo and installed a 3.2E P4, 512MB ECC, and the DD' d drive. Booted Right Up!!!!! Thanks To All.... I would say snap one up....for the price!!! Will get back to you with test results later. Peace Out Guido Medford, OR USA
  14. Build Your Own Mac for $199

    I did as well.... I got the MOBO from NewEgg and eBay for the CPU. However my day job is testing HW any way. My Lab CPUs are right here so I will just have to put it thru the paces until my Cely shows up. Keep up the good work guys and girls. Peace Out!
