  1. Dell XPS 410 with Lion

    I finally got Lion installed on my desktop, a Dell XPS 410, except I have a couple problems. 1.) The internet speed is 4-6 Kb/s. If I boot into safemode it's between 186 and 250 Kb/s, any logical reason for this? It's detected as an Apple E1000 adapter, and I tried the E1000 kext from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and have no changes. 2.) My GeForce 9800 GTX+ is locked at 1024x768, and is detected as having 14 MB memory, when it's a 512 MB card. Not bugging me as much as the internet though. 3.) The Dell memory card reader does not work. I can use an external reader but the Dell OEM reader doesn't work at all, although it does work under Windows 7. 4.) My WinTV HVR-1850 does not work, go figure (it's called a WINTV, wasn't designed to work on a mac in the 1st place). I installed using iAtkos L2. The system specs are: 2.66 GHz Core 2 Duo (E6700) 3 GB DDR2 ram PNY XLR8 (GeForce) 9800 GTX+ 512 MB 750 GB Hitachi hard drive Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS (haven't touched that yet) WinTV HVR-1850 TV tuner Dual SATA DVD Burners
  2. Dell Wireless 1397-Leopard

    I installed Leopard tonight on my Dell Latitude D820 using Leppy700m's way (I would've used SL but no SL install disk). It installed fine, everything works great, the GMA950, the audio, the Sierra Wireless MC5720 and the smart card reader (detected anyways), however I can not get the Dell Wireless 1397 to work. I've tried the bmc43xx_enabler.sh already, and got nothing. Under Xubuntu 11.10 the card works perfectly, same with Windows XP Pro. I have a feeling I might need to find a different wireless card since this one I've hated all along, Linux 2.6 kernel issues, random slowness, etc. I know someone that might have a card so I'll ask them if they have anything that I can use. Thanks!
  3. I tried googleing but found no download links.
  4. Thanks, I'll try that. The D6x0 seems to be basically a smaller version of the D8x0 laptops.
  5. I'm wondering if anyone has had any success with this model of laptop. I've tried Kalyway 10.5.2, it would reboot upon loading from the disk. I tried Leohazard 10.6.2, it would install but when rebooting kernel panic in both Safemode and regular mode and I tried iAtkos 5i which install and will only boot in Safemode, otherwise it crashes. The specs are: 2 GHz Core 2 Duo T7200 1.5 gigs DDR2-667 ram 160 gig SATA hard drive Intel 945 graphics (system profiler reports GMA950) C-Major Audio Broadcom BCM43xx wireless Broadcom 57xx network (iAtkos detected this).
  6. I'm hoping this is the right area but does anyone know where I can find D620630SL.iso? There was success on the Latitude D620 using this disk, which is almost identical to the D820 which I have. If anyone knows where I can find this it would be greatly appriciated because I've tried Kalyway 10.5.2, Leohazard 10.6.2 and iAtkos 10.5i, all of which failed on reboot, except iAtkos which will only boot in safemode. If this is in the wrong forum can a moderator please move it? Thanks!
  7. Hello, Has anyone installed OS X on a Dell Precision M60? I download and successfully burnt Hazard OS X 10.6 on a DVD but I can't boot from it on this laptop. I was able to boot it on a Celeron 1.4 system (Yes, I know it can't install due do lack of SSE2) and it got to the boot menu on the disk. So, I was wondering if there is any version that has been successfully installed on a Precision M60? I have a Kalyway 10.5.8 disk that is MIA around here somewhere and I wanted to know which version works before I download every version I can find. Thanks
  8. Hello, I Have 2 Dell Optiplexs. One Is A 260, And The Other Is A 280. When Ever I Try To Install, It Says The File Call Someting Like "Apple Config" Is Missing. I Have Tried Booting Into Safe Mode, But When All The Text Is Gone, It Freezes Up. I Have Tried The Disk In VPC 07, And It Always Tells Me "An Unrecoverable System Error Has Occured". The Dell Optiplex GX 260 Has A 3.06 GHz P4, 1024 Mb. Ram (1 GB), And An 80 GB HDD. The Dell Optiplex GX 280 Has A 2.80 GHz P4 HT, 1024 Mb. Ram (1 GB) And A 250 GB HDD. Thanks
