  1. Is it possible to install 10.6 in a virtual machine, (virtualbox?) and is there any howto urls around? Maybe you need a patched osx disc for a hackintosh. Thanks, -IW
  2. Leo4allv3 finished and released

    Failed on a P5E x38 chipset motherboard, must be the jmicron ata hardware for the dvd. /com.apple.boot.plist not found. error I guess its the vmware boot bypass method. (I'll post results)
  3. I got it installed finally with 10.5.2 Kalaway Video/Audio/network cards didnt work and had to install patches. Loop install on an 8800 GT card, had to boot 640x480 to bypass movie. Audio - HDA audio and a linux codec dump got 2 channel audio working Network - had to add the correct PCI ID to the Network ktext, Intel Pro 100/VE (Dell onboard) Saw both cpu's on my Dell 9100 Dimension (Older P4 model) with a D960 3.6ghz cpu. No 1680x1050 mode, but 1920x1200 worked on NVInject. (I like lower resolution to read) Little boot issues with grub, took me 3 days to get everything working, find resources in forums, etc. Not all in 1 area, but able to piece together issues and drivers. Next install should really include NVInject, HD Audio, more linux codecs. The network card was posted about a couple times. So, Nice system, already posted my xbench scores, not bad, not core duo 2 great, but new hardware is on the way.

  5. Legit Windows 7 Screens!

    all the torrents are fake, i find it hard to believe that this wouldnt be leaked, everyone and their brother wants it.
  6. Can you install on a logical partition?

    Anyone? I checked the wiki it doesnt say if a logical partition is ok.
  7. I was wondering if you can install 10.5.x on a logical partition or do you have to use a primary partition? My HD is setup with 3 primaries (apps/xp/vista) and 5-10 are logicals (for grub/swap/linux/bsd/etc and hopefully osx) I tried to boot into a logical and got the b0 error from osx. Thanks! -iw
  8. Problem is you cant modify a hfsplus drive with journaling, you have to turn it off, but if you cant boot in, you cant fix it. But, I got an osx cd, going to try that.
  9. I need to change the kernel, install wont boot. (Im assuming its a kernel issue) I only have linux installed, and nothing seems to boot hfsplus in read write mode. Any ideas or links? Thanks.

  11. I was wondering how the Nvidia gfx card support is now that the new iMac's are using nvidia 7300/7600 gfx cards. Do you still need the macvidia driver? Thanks.
  12. Hey everyone, just thought I'd post and say great work, very good howtos on the wiki. Just installed 10.4.7 on a Dell Dimension 9100, 820D, Nvidia 7800 GT. (No SB driver, so turn on the Onboard audio...) Put the Macdriver 108 on, so running at 1920x1200 on the 24 lcd, looks damn good. Network card works fine, Sound isnt working, load error on the AC97 hacked extension, I'll work on that later. Graphics is ok, but seems like it thinks there is a 2nd monitor, but looks like a common problem with the macdriver. No Quartz Extreme My Real OSX box is a dual G4 1.42 Tower with an ATI 9800, used as my other wow box and ssh/squid box. Not bad, had to delete my vista partition, needed a real partition for grub to work. Oh well. -IW
  13. That was the same issue I was having... Glad i found this post.
