    Vanilla install on Dell Vostro 1510 - 1520

    I've had some progress Here's what I did : Installed as in 1st post from the install DVD - during install I used Disk Utility to create a mac and a FAT partition. After install, installed Windows 7 to the FAT (making it NTFS - Windows install handle mac partitions) It then boots into windows. Installed MacDrive and could make the changes listed in the 1st post . Just booted it from the Snowboot disk and I now have keyboard and mouse working. No sound though - I'll have to try figure that one out. am going to install EasyBCD to make it proper dual boot.

    Still can't manage it Been trying to edit the dmg file from windows but no success. I've tried transmac and macdrive but they don't let me modify an image and burn it back as a mac disk. Do you know a way to edit a dmg file in windows, and then preferably put it on a USB (I'm running out of Dual layer disks)

    Yes I followed the instructions in the 1st post. I get to the part where I use disk utility, but the keyboards doesn't work. I see the part in the instructions about voodooPS2.kext, but I can't get to that point without the keyboard. If I just accept the defaults, it boots up into mac OS but freezes with a no keyboard message

    I've tried this but when I finally get to boot in mac it says there is no keyboard. On another board it says I should select ps2 keyboard during install but could not find anywhere to do that. Has anyone else had this? What do I do? I have the vostro 1520.
