    G73SW ML 10.8.2 Install

    wow, great work done guys, really great.. I had the Inspiron 1720 before like ellnic which was a good MBP hack but recently sold it for the G73 JH now. So the differences here are: i7 740QM not the i7-2630QM chipset Intel HM55 not HM56 hd5870, not the GTX460M no USB3 retail 10.8.2 USB install with chimera 2 and optional kexts. no DSDT so far. what works: WiFi, LAN, cam, bluetooth, restart, fn keys( light dim and vol) , sound, trackpad , HDMI out (without sound) I used these kexts first then installed additional the attatched ones for Sound/ Lan( which stopped working) lan:vHDA.zip
  3. 3 partitions, Leopard, Leopard backup and XP, formatted as Guild. After the Leopard install (with Chameleon 2.0) I installed XP. Both are selectable with Chameleon, but after choosing Leopard (still the first Leo boot after installing!) it just reeboots after loading the kexts. it doesn´t start the welcome screen.. Leo is set active. I guess its an EFI/ Kernel thing, I installed stock Vanilla, with IDeneb 10.5.7. greets
  4. I finally can confirm a fully working BCM 4401 [14e4:170c] method, I have SL 10.6.4 running, installed with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url].. http://www.tonymacx86.com/ Step-by-step: Open Finder and navigate to com.apple.Boot.plist Add max_valid_dma_addr=1024 to the kernel flags so your com.apple.Boot.plist files (inside Extra folder and /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist) that it looks like this: <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=i386 max_valid_dma_addr=1024</string> cheers AppleBCM440XEthernet.kext_3_.zip

    Best netbook for Leopard?

    so, NOW, 2011..is there a 100%, FULLY WORKING, I mean F U L L Y, with blutooth, WIFI, webcam, sound, trackpad, overclockable netbook ? of course there is the compability chart, but.. .. - Dell mini10v - HP Wind ( overclockable via BIOS) - Dell vostro a90 ( but only 9 inch, and not available any more) greets
  6. thanks, I give it a try.. do I have to remove the old kexts before installing? I tried another kexts two days before and got kernel panic after..
  7. when I try this from Heaven Devine, the OP, I get kernel panic.. does anyone know how to get the Synapsis Trackpad Clicking working on SL ? "Keyboard and Mouse: Built in To get the keyboard and mouse working with side scroll download "1720 bulit in Keyboard and Mouse.zip" and unzip. 1) Open terminal and run the following: sudo -s cd /Volumes/YOUR-HDD/System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ rm -Rf AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext cd /Volumes/YOUR-HDD/System/Library/Extensions rm -Rf ApplePS2Controller.kext rm -Rf ApplePS2Controller.kext.orig 2) open OSX86Tools 3) Select Repair Permissions / Set Extensions permissions / Clear Extensions Cache and click "Run Selected Tasks" 4) Click "Install Kexts" install "VoodooPS2Controller.kext" from the unzipped file to your HDD " this didn´t work either: http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php/topic,235.0.html greets
  8. I have a running leopard ( IDeneb 10.5.7) and yesterday, after doin an update ( 10.5.8. downloaded from apple site), I cant boot anymore..with -v I get a´ Apple SmBios Error´.. How can I undo the last update without changing my Desktop etc. I have 3 partitions, Win XP, Leopard, and a new installed Leopard ( for copying my data before it gets lost.. notebook is a Toshiba A100.. many greets
  9. danke erstmal für die Anleitung, ich bin gerade an Punkten 10 und 11.. 10.) Nun noch in der com.apple.boot.plist Euren EFi String eintragen (der den Ihr auch für Leo habt) 11.) Tja… Nun die DSDT… ok, in dem SL-Pack ist ein Ordner mit einer guten (aber Englischen) Anleitung. An die habe ich mich Schritt für Schritt gehalten - und habe nun eine funktionierende DSDT.aml für mein GA-P35 DS3p rev. 1.1 …Die DSDT ist für jedes Mainboard natürlich anders.. !! Aber ihr müsst unbedingt darauf achten, den Clean CMOS Patch anzuwenden (an 2 Stellen 0x04 in 0x02 ändern) - sonst wir Euer BIOS resetet und in manchen Fällen muss es mit ClearCMOS wieder "aktivert" werden… was macht man denn mit dem EFI-String, wo wird der reinkopiert ich habe ein GA-P35 DS3 2.0, und eine 8800 GT(500MB).. hat jemand evtll schon ein passendes DSDT?
  10. I installed iDeneb 10.5.7, nearly everything works, bluetooth, webcam, Ethernet (sometimes hangs), graphics 1920x1200 QE enabled. the touchpad works, too, but no tapping. the trackpad dont even show up in system preferences. it DID work with my 1520 I had before.
  11. WHAT? with THIS you got a working installation?????? If I only choose TWO kernels I get kernel panic during the installation process...

    Firefox slow - solution

    no, these ARE Addons (Popup Blocker), and slow FF ( at least on my system)
  13. normally, yes. thats the best case when after installing osx it wont boot, I use Ultimate Boot CD, as described.
  14. I wondered why FF got so damn slow after upgrading to version 3.6.. Then I checked my Add-Ons and deactivated two, and now it runs much faster: - FirefoxAddKiller - AddBlock Plus hope this helps.
  15. you have to activate the osX partition first. when i do an install, after XP, sometimes I have to do this, too: just get Ultimate Boot CD an burn it. then boot from it, and under ´file tool´there is ´boot manager´, take it and activate your (new) OSX partition. it then boots immediateley..
