  1. Would this work on other laptops with a Mobility Radeon 4570? Namely the Sony Vaio NW11S? Only minor differences in specs, same graphics card though. Installed iDeneb a long time ago and had everything functioning but the Wireless (not gonna attempt that again) and QE/CI. Also, what install method should I use? Just vanilla 10.6.6? Not taking any risks haha. Thanks!
  2. Sounds similar if not the same as my NW11S Good luck trying to get QE/CI on your 4570 I managed to install 10.5.7 but it wasn't very usable without the right kexts.
  3. Intel Wireless Drivers [OSx86]

    Oh thank god someone's working on this. Fingers crossed!
  4. Reinstalled with some different kexts, seems to be working alright, using ATI Radeon HD 3650 kext though, and trying to find a way to make it boot in 1366x768 as 1024x768 is the only resolution available. - Done with adding 1366x768x32@59 to boot
  5. You'd be lucky to get your Intel Wireless working with OSx
  6. Managed to install from iDeneb 1.3 10.5.5, it installed fine but hangs at boot. Booted with -v and it hangs at: LPCB: family specific matching fails Oct 7 20:19:54 localhost configd[53]: InterfaceNamer: no network interfaces, could not update platform UUID Any help?
  7. Thanks Just I was reading a guide and it said you absolutely have to format your entire drive, but I'm guessing if I use gParted or something similar to set aside say 60gb for osx, leave it unformatted, that'd work? Shall give it a try tomorrow.
  8. Bumppp System specs: Chipset: Mobile Intel® PM45 Express Chipset Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T6500 2.1GHz Memory: 4GB 800MHz DDR2 Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570, 512mb DDR3
  9. Okay so I bought a Sony Vaio NW11S last week, and it's pretty good (but OSx would make it perfect ) But on the hardware compatibility lists, I'm having a hard time finding my hardware. Here is pretty much everything to do with it. Which distro should I go for? (iDeneb, iAtkos or whatever it's called, Kalaway... etc.) Second question, will I be able to keep my Sony Vaio Recovery Partition? And third question, is it possible to keep my existing Windows Vista installation too? Haha, I don't want much Thanks for any help.
