  1. Mirrored Montor

    Ok, so I tried using Macdrive. Macdrive itself worked (cool program... I like it) however deleting those 2 files Rammjet suggested did not fix my problem. Is there anything else I can do? (As a side note if I use an external monitor it works on the right screen) Should I just reinstall Mac or is there another workaround for this? Thanks once again.
  2. Now even though this may seem strange, odd, and a little premitive, try using the paperclip/2 wire trick. Normally the external monitor would work however, its worth a try. Basicly you have to take a small, metallic paperclip and stick into holes 2 and 12. (I can't find the pic) Hole 2 is the second hole from the right, top row. Hole 12 is the second hole from the right, bottom row. Or you can check this nice picture with the holes pre marked http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...ost&p=54242 (While the picture also marked connecting holes 1 and 6, users have soon found out that only holes 2 and 12 are necessary to boot Mac OSX) I hope this helps, Good Luck!
  3. (Very Odd) Laptop Installation

    What I suggest (keyword being Suggest) is using VM Ware, its what I used mostly because my DVD Burner hates me and for some reason never made good bootable DVD's for me. You can use VMWare to install Mac and then set it so Mac can run nativly. You can check the VMware to Native Tutorial at http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=11314 Good Luck!
  4. compaq v3012AU can't install native 10.4.7

    You CAN Install on VM Ware and get a fully native Mac OSX, I have one... (A little busted right now becuase I'm an idiot, but it Does work). I can give you 2000 steps but the easiest tutorial for installing Vm ware to native is this link: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=11314 One thing that wasn't mentioned in the tutorial though was if you want to have a Dual Boot (as if with Win XP and Mac OSX). If you want a dual boot there are a few ways on getting an OS Selector/Boot Loader, however I personally use Acronis Disk Director (not free). There are some free alternatives though. I hope this helps! Good Luck!

    Rammjet, I tried doing what you said but I then got an Error Message reading "This file or directory was not found" for each item I typed. Gubbel, I'm right now trying to download the software you have gave and I'll report back here if the software worked, and if Mac works. Thankyou!

    Wait, how can I delete them if I can't even access Mac OSX? (And Can't use Windows Explorer to view its partition). Is there some command line prompt I can do to delete those files? Thanks in advance!
  7. Mirrored Montor

    I got Mac OSX working on my Dell Insprion 6000 (with the 2 Wire technique) and normally it worked. However I idoticly checked the "mirror montior/display" checkbox in the Display's Section in System Preferences. After that, everytime I boot Mac OSX I end up going to the 'paperclip' display and I can't go back to my true Montior. I wanted to know if there's a boot peremeter or work around so I can get Mac OSX to boot to my true display and not to the 'paperclip' display. Thanks!
  8. I don't know if this can help but I got this problem too once. What happpned was that I was trying to install to my Notebook Computer but I can't use the image file that was in there. However if I tried to install using the file on my other computer (using the wireless network at my house), it worked. Sooo.... I'd make sure you got every single, file first of all and didn't skip any. And I don't think the network thing had anything to do with it, but if this fails again, you might just have gotten a bad file.
  9. "No Smoking" sign over Apple

    Ok, I'll try the monitor soon.... its getting late here, however I have heard of the VGA Dongle, what I'm intrested in though is that some people were able to run Mac OSX without any need for a dongle on a Dell Insprion 6000 Notebook too, oh well, leave it to me to get unlucky. Also if you don't mind (and as if the picture wasn't self explanatory), what did you do to create the '2 Wire Trick", for some reason I want to guess you use a paper clip like type of metal. Also, what's that paper/duct tape thing doing under the port? What is it and is it supposed to be like that? Are the also any possible options? Frankly it would seem making a VGA Dongle will be a little hard for a student in high school.... would there be any other, safe, less intense methods to do this? Thanks in advance!
  10. "No Smoking" sign over Apple

    Well the problem I had was with booting up the Installer Program, not Mac OSX itself. However I have got it to work, for some reason it was able to use the CD Files that was stored in another computer and not the one in my computer. So I just set Alcohol 120 to mount the files from the other computer and installed it, and it now kinda works. Getting off topic, currently my Mac OSX Does work in VM Ware, however I can't boot it up in a dual boot system. (After the Darwin Boot Loader, it hangs at the Blue 'Boot up' screen). Does anyone know why Mac OSX worked on VM Ware and not when booting it up natively? Thanks!
  11. "No Smoking" sign over Apple

    I am using this tutorial: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=11314. (I'm using Alcohol 120 instead of Daemon Tools, however I did try Daemon Tools at one point for this and it failed in the same way.) I know this works to some extent becuase it worked on the Desktop PC. The Drive I'm using is Primary, Fat 32. However I have attached a pic of "Acronis Disk Director" which I'm using if it can help you.
  12. When I try to boot up the Installation Disc, it stopped after the Gray Apple Screen. (The little circle below the apple keeps moving but stays there forever.) In addition there was a little 'No Smoking" sign over the apple shown in the picture below" So then I booted using "-v" and then I see the error "Load of /sbin/launchd failed, errono 88" as seen in the picture below: I'm using VM Ware for this installation, and I'm using Alcohol 120% to mount. I know the files I got aren't corrupted since they worked on my Desktop (Dell Dimension 8100). I'm trying to install this on a Dell Insprion 6000 Notebook. Does anyone know what to do? Thanks in advance!
  13. Missing File

    (Please excuse me for my possibly bad english and for being new...) Ok, when I boot up the installer in VM Ware, when it goes to the "8 Second Countdown" where it says press a key for boot options, right before the countdown it says: "System Config File /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/Com.apple.boot.plist can't be found" After that the countdown passes, and even if I pressed a key or not, when I go to select a boot option it says the file can't be found again and I'm stuck there. The same message appears if I type in -v. So do you guys know a workaround to this? Thanks in advance.
  14. When I try to boot up to the installer and after the '8 second countdown' passes I see the message: "System Config File /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/Com.apple.boot.plist can't be found" The same goes for when I wait after or when I press a key during the countdown and when I type in -v for the Diagnosic Message. Do you guys know how to work around this? Thanks! (As a side note please excuse the fact I'm a noob, and can hardly talk English, Thanks)
