  1. Vanilla Install on MSI Wind

    Ok, so I did everything as in the first post was mentioned until the fourth step. Once I boot from my 8GB SDHC card, chameleon shows up, I hit enter and the apple logo appears, but few seconds later I get a kernel panic. Something about "Unsupported CPU" and "Kernel Extensions in backtrace (with dependencies): com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement(90.0.0)@0x2e71e000->0x2e735fff Do I need some kind of special bios version, or do I have to disable some bios settings? I tried everything from deactivting SpeedStep, AHCI - first each, and then together. Since so many of you have successfully installed SL - care to help? BTW: I got a MSI Wind U90 (should be hardware-wise the same) with 2GB RAM, Bios-Version "EN011IMS Ver. 10E" (from 09/01/2009). I used my Snow Leopard upgrade disc for the third step. Thanks!
  2. You are the man! Sweet - gonna try it right now. Thanks man, my evening is saved.
  3. Hey, can anyone download the linked BIOS files in the OP? Seems like the files were deleted. Would anybody be so kindly and up them again or to a place like Rapidshare or Megaupload or whatnot. Thanks in advance guys! EDIT: Oh I forgot to mention, that I need the BIOS 1613 for my brandnew ASUS P5Q Pro

    My solution is using the F8 key at bootup and selecting the Windows partition. Works quite good. Sadly, I've destroyed my OSX install and must reinstall. Which driver for the internal graphics card do I need to select? The GMA900 or the GMA950? I think all new Core Duo notebooks have GMA950, but this just gave me an error so I deleted the kext and now strange color stripes appear instead of the nice looking desktop. But oh well, one can't have everything, right? EDIT: Oh, and I think Ethernet works, but hadn't have the chance to test it out

    Ok, I had the time to install OSX 10.4.8 - and it runs. Now I need to get comfy with OSX - it's a bit strange, but very cool. Graphics works - with full 1400x1050 resolution. Sound not Wireless not Ethernet - don't know. Does anyone know if it is possible to get the battery symbol to show up? Edit: Ok, found out how to boot windows. But now OSX won't boot. Naaaah! More later.

    Oh man! Awesome! Your da man! I gotta try this stats! Now where is my OSX 10.4.8 DVD again?

    Yeah thought the same thing - but will OSX install fine on an external usb hdd? because the internal hdd is connected to the sata raid thingy.

    I got just one question: how did you get the installer to see your hard drive? Is there some sort of work around for the raid thingy? All I see is the installer - but no harddrive or partition to chose. In the harddrive tool program it's as well not listed. Any tips?
  9. Thanks mate, I'll give it a try.
  10. Yeah - and besides the old Pentium M (Dothan) outperformed most higher clocked P4s without problems. I remember that my old 1.6 GHz Pentium M was faster (in benchmarks like SuperPI oder SiSoft Sandra etc) than the P4 my friend had. Now my Core Duo 1.66 GHz is in most CPU benchmarks faster than my Pentium D805. Intel has gone a new way with the Pentium M and Core (2) Duo. Just look at toms hardware guide, they have a long article about this subject. And besides: the lifetime of your battery will greatly improve over your current pentium 4m.
  11. Hi guys! I searched the internet and on this very forum for a solution for my problem. So the problem is quite simple: I have bought a new Toshiba M400 (specs follow) and thought: hey, that is about the same hardware as the new macbooks - so I wanted to give it a try. But now the mad mumbojumbo begins. Some times the installer crashes instantly after the "Press any key to install or F8 for options", and sometimes it starts just fine and I'm welcomed by the nice blue background and the installer. This sounds cool at the beginning, but now even more problems appear. I don't see the harddrive, and it doesn't seem to be recognized by the system at all (or I'm blind and don't see it in the verbose mode). Has anybody a tip for me? I tried all the other ways (installing with vmware, or prepareing the hdd with linux). The specs are: Intel core duo T2300 (1,66ghz) 1024Mb ddr2 ram 80gb Toshiba HDD (sata - raid (note: it's just one drive, and the recovery disc sets it back to raid, and not jbod)) intel gma950 intel 945gm chipset 12,1 SXGA+ tablet screen most recent Bios (V1.50) I'm looking forward for your suggestions.
