    Windows 7 needs repair

    Sorry, can you specify a bit more? What should I do on [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] if I have any problems? Also, unrelated to this problem, but my hackintosh also doesn't sleep. I enabled S3 STR in the Bios, (p55m-ud2 mobo , f11 bios) and the screen goes black when i put it in sleep, and i can wake it up with the keyboard and mouse, but it just boots up as if i just started the pc. and i get random blue flashed/flickering on my screen, just a plain blue screen comes up for a few seconds, sometimes its consistently, sometimes it doesnt happen for a while, how can i fix this? graphics card is a gts 450 btw.

    Windows 7 needs repair

    I DID follow it throughly, not sure why this happened. I'll try what you said though, thanks.
  3. I followed TonyMac's guide to dual-booting Windows 7 and Snow Leopard, and Snow Leopard is working fine, but when I try to boot into Windows 7, it asks me to put in the repair disc to fix it. Now I'm sure that if I do that, I won't be able to get into Snow Leopard, how can I fix this to boot into both Windows 7 or Snow Leo without messing up one or the other?

    [GUIDE] Leopard on an XPS 1330/1530

    Can I run the boot-132 loader on a separate USB drive? I already wasted one disc before on the boot-loader the OP linked in the first post, and it didn't work so I don't want to risk making another coaster. I also managed to get Leopard back, and re-did all the steps and this time it ALMOST boots, but hangs on a file.. can't recall which one it is atm. Is there anyway for me to check which build number my SL is, or does it not matter? Thanks.

    Followed this down to every word, and it didn't work for me. When I got to Step 11 is it? The drive wouldn't boot, it would just have the _ blinking over and over. What can I do? I think maybe the boot loader didn't get installed correctly or something? I don't know but now how can I fix it if I can't get in my Leopard install?

    Yeah, I don't have a current Mac/hackintosh I can use so I'm gonna install Kalyway's 10.5.2 and then maybe later on try and install Snow Leopard again..for now its a bit too frustrating and nearly impossible for somebody without a Mac at their disposal. EDIT: BTW, I have an account here from a long time ago that I joined.. but when I go on it it doesn't allow me to post? Tells me my posting abilities have been removed or something? Whats up with that.. I never posted anything offensive or nothing, I was just inactive for about 1.5 years. Could that be why?
  11. Yeah..can I upgrade straight from a hacked distro to a vanilla one, in this case Kalyway 10.5.2 to Vanilla 10.6 (not .1)? Or will I have to fresh install? Thanks.

    [GUIDE] Leopard on an XPS 1330/1530

    Help please. I've burned the NEWISO.ISO file with IMGBurn, and I can get it to get to the part where it says blah blah press Enter to go in to Darwin/x86, so I type in -v and press enter, switch to my Retail Snow Leopard disc and the disc doesn't even get to the apple logo/starts booting. It just stays stuck on the second HSF+ thing, I don't know whats the exact error, but I believe its like the 4th line after you press enter when trying to boot in verbose mode.. somebody.. help. Tried searching and found nothing. BTW, I'm using an XPS 1530.

    Quick question, will your Boot CD work for a Vanilla Snow Leopard install? Can I basically use this same tutorial to install Snow Leopard? Thanks.
