    [How To] Install Mac OS X 10.5.6 on Acer Aspire 6920g

    Thank you very much. I couldn't find that exact version, but in a search for that, I ended up finding "XxX_x86_10.5.6_Install_Disc_Universal_Final", which is what I was looking for originally, without the "V2" thing. Not sure what the difference is, if there is any. As soon as it's downloaded, I'll try that out. Thanks!

    [How To] Install Mac OS X 10.5.6 on Acer Aspire 6920g

    Sorry in advance if I just seem stupid, but I'm not prepared to trudge through 8 pages of text that all deal with different specific problems that may or may not be related to my problems or even this tutorial. Anyway, A while ago, I tried to follow the tutorial on the first page of this thread. Seems it's slightly out of date, though, since a copy of "XxX_x86_10.5.6_Install_Disc_Universal_Final.v2" is unobtainable now. I understand you guys are probably fully aware of this, but I was just wondering If there was a more up-to-date tutorial for this exact laptop? The reason that I ask is that I installed a different version of iDeneb, and it works, to an extent. But there aren't as many options as there apparently are on this "XxX" version of iDeneb, and so i have a few problems. I can't get Wireless internet (although I'm guessing there just isn't a driver for this wireless card), Sound just doesn't work at all (unless I plug in my external sound card), and when I plug my 1080p TV into the HDMI socket, it goes into a sleep which it can't wake up from. I then have to use VGA, and for some reason 1920x1080 isn't on the list of resolutions; Max is 1280x1024. Can someone reccomend me a suitable replacement for "XxX_x86_10.5.6_Install_Disc_Universal_Final.v2", or talk me through how to solve my listed problems? And before you tell me to go and search through the forums, I've tried that. All solutions end with a seemingly massively complicated process which in the end doesn't work, and just confuses me since I have no actual help.
  3. Ok, first off, i'm pretty much new here, so sorry if i'm breaking any rules by posting this up here. Anyway, to business. I have an Acer Aspire 6920g which i got a couple years back now. I'm really happy with it, but as time has gone on, vista has just been nuisance after nuisance. I'm pretty sick of it now, and my laptop needs a good OS reinstalling and complete clearing anyway, but instead of totally getting rid of vista in favour of Mac OSx, i want to keep it installed for two or three reasons. For one, i want to keep compatibility with windows-only programs, as well as keeping all my stuff i've installed up to now still on my hard drive. the other reason is that windows 7, which i will eventually be getting around christmas, is a lot cheaper if you're upgrading from vista, rather than installing it fresh. My laptop already has a hard-drive with 2 partitions, both of them with windows-related stuff and files on them, however, obviously, only one of them has vista installed on it. what i want to be able to do is quite simple, in my mind. 1. Create a smallish (10-15 GB) partition on my second partition, giving me three partitions altogether. 2. Install mac OSx on the third partition without interfering with vista 3. Be able to decide which one to boot up easily I've read up about dual booting and such everywhere, and i've read a lot of different things, such as that i'd need a vista install disc (which i dont have because it came preinstalled) to fix vista after OSx breaks winload.exe, i've heard that Snow leopard Doesn't work for this sort of thing, so i just came here for some answers, and to clear all of this up. I guess what confused me the most is that everone who does this sort of thing generally has a Vista disc they can use to reinstall vista if things go wrong (i'm not even sure what things and how they could go wrong), which i don't have. So my question is: Is what I want to do feasibly possible, and if so, how would i go about accomplishing it? Thanks for taking the time to help me, and i'm sorry if this was posted in the wrong place or if i've broken any rules.
