  3. DELL STUDIO 1737 (ATI HD3650)

    Seriously.... nobody has ever figured that laptop out?
  4. DELL STUDIO 1737 (ATI HD3650)

    I have a Dell Studio 1737 Install with: iatkos s3 v2 ATI HD 3650 (not sure, I've read still no QE/CE) Wifi work has genuine Airport! not sure where to go from here, if someone could point me to a link or am I wasting my time trying to get this laptop to run Snow Leopard.. I have tried the older iatkios V7 and laptop freeze trying to boot with it..
  5. almost perfect MSI U100 install!

    BTW: I can't figure now how to get the headphone & wakeup mode to work... Anyone has figured that one out? Thanks.
  6. Ok.. after a long while trying to install a perfect OSX on this netbook, I got got a almost perfect OSX netbook. you need: 1- MSIWindosx86.iso (google it) 2- Realtek_RTL8187SE_MacOS10.5_Driver_073_UI_1.6.2.zip (to get the WIFI running) I just wish there was a way to make it run in the background at boot.. 3- MacOSXUpd10.5.7.dmg (from apple) then after a reboot use a USB/Keyboard until running the patch, it will also fix the 800X600 display. (upgraded from 10.5.4 to 10.5.8 ok) 4- MSi OSX86 Upgrade Pack v1.5.zip and follow the order to install. at upgrade patch, it will warn you that things will go wrong... it did not.. the only things not working is the headphone & mic jack.. Oh! well.. even the webcam works! btw, I have a legit copy of OSX... So.. here you go. I don't take credit for this... for someone else has work hard.. please pass the knowledge. and if you like your Mac, support Apple by buying their product!...

  7. Spore for mac.

    the game took all the updates from EA... (not a cracked version !) worked ok for the time I played! later on, after a reboot... the Spore logo shows up and the game just quit... here's what I found in console: [0x0-0x72072].com.transgaming.spore Line 2312: Unrecognized input 'WINE REGISTRY Version 2' com.apple.launchd[915] ([0x0-0x18018].com.transgaming.spore[981]) Exited with exit code: 1 anyone has experienced this? from what I read on EA support website, they don't know how to fix this!! thanks.
  8. Intel E7500 Core 2 Duo issue.

  10. hello: I have windows 7 & OSX on X2 HDD... Chameleon v2 sees Windows 7 and the (100mb partition) "System reserved" that win7 boot from. "how to" edit Chameleon boot menu in mac? I just want to see the OSX and the "System reserved" at Chameleon V2 menu! Is this simple enough! It should.
  11. I did that test, and it works! Thanks.
  12. it is! handbrake could not see the "fake" bad sector on the dvd... while anyDVD saw them....
  13. Figured it out, I use my "PC"... mac is too complicated.
  14. like the title say: How to "ripping a DVD, shrinking it, and make a DIVX (in windows I just use DVD shrink) it seems the process in MAc is somewhat different! I've found: MacTheRipper not bad! only it rips them at 7.5Gb... Thanks.
