  1. You want to change over to the OSXlatitude EDP system. See http://www.osxlatitude.com That is based off this work, to a degree, and is much better supported. I transistioned a 10.6.0 D620 from this method to EDP and then upgraded to 10.6.8, long time ago.
  2. JTylerBlake, I'd recommend you use the OSXL (osxlatitude.com) methods at this point. You'll be happier. Can you currently boot the bootCD in this thread? If so, you can boot your installation that way and use it to create the boot USB the OSXL method needs. I went through the two different /Extra directories (the one where I got the boot0: error, and the one that works (well, worked until I reinstalled with the OSXL method)): dhcp-pool160:/ root# diff -rq Extra-leppy Extra-backup Files Extra-leppy/.32plist and Extra-backup/.32plist differ Files Extra-leppy/.64plist and Extra-backup/.64plist differ Files Extra-leppy/com.apple.Boot.plist and Extra-backup/com.apple.Boot.plist differ ... (additional items in /Extra-backup/tmp, and they're all '._' files)... In that snippet above, Extra-leppy is the copy of the working /Extra; Extra-backup is a copy of the non-working /Extra. Looking at the three differing files: dhcp-pool160:/ root# diff -u Extra-leppy/.32plist Extra-backup/.32plist --- Extra-leppy/.32plist 2009-11-22 01:05:26.000000000 -0500 +++ Extra-backup/.32plist 2013-04-02 16:56:52.000000000 -0400 @@ -9,6 +9,6 @@ <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>yes</string> <key>Timeout</key> - <string>10</string> + <string>1</string> </dict> </plist> dhcp-pool160:/ root# diff -u Extra-leppy/.64plist Extra-backup/.64plist --- Extra-leppy/.64plist 2009-11-22 01:05:11.000000000 -0500 +++ Extra-backup/.64plist 2013-04-02 16:56:52.000000000 -0400 @@ -9,6 +9,6 @@ <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>yes</string> <key>Timeout</key> - <string>10</string> + <string>1</string> </dict> </plist> dhcp-pool160:/ root# diff -u Extra-leppy/com.apple.Boot.plist Extra-backup/com.apple.Boot.plist --- Extra-leppy/com.apple.Boot.plist 2009-11-22 01:03:14.000000000 -0500 +++ Extra-backup/com.apple.Boot.plist 2013-04-02 16:56:52.000000000 -0400 @@ -9,6 +9,6 @@ <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>yes</string> <key>Timeout</key> - <string>10</string> + <string>1</string> </dict> </plist> dhcp-pool160:/ root# And that's just the timeout. So the files themselves didn't differ. But the permissions and ownerships aren't checked by 'diff -rq' as above. And the ownership is different, and I'll have to check and see what that tells me.... Will update. UPDATE: After a bit of research, it's rather unlikely that what fixed mine will fix yours, and a copy of my /Extra (which was directly from the original bootCD posted way back) won't help you. This is because of what caused my issue in the first place. There is something else going on in your case, I'm afraid, and not having your box in front of me I don't think I can successfully guide you through it. Sorry.
  3. I got the boot0 issue a few days ago, but 'fixed' it by copying back a pristine copy of /Extra. But I had a fully working setup since 2009 until then, and just copied what had been working in 2009. And I can say that you can
  4. Old thread, but a good one.... Seeing that the OSXL stuff somewhat descends from this CD, I'm interested to see if anyone has 'crossgraded' from the original leppy700m CD to using OSXL's EDP, and what you might have run across doing such a 'crossgrade.' UPDATE. Crossgrade does work, but care is needed. See: http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/62-dell-latitude-d620-thread/page-10&do=findComment&comment=3944 and its enclosing thread for the major clues needed.
  5. Add Dell Inspiron 640m to this list; tried the rest, retail's the best! Used the SL ISO, and 'It Just Worked' . No display sleep problems like with the others I tried. Bought a Full Retail SL, got the one ISO, and Just Worked (well, at least those things that should work... Wifi not one of them, of course). This 640m has a GMA950, too. Sound just worked. Many thanks!
