  1. D975XBX2 Sound Help

    If you have a BadAxe2, you really should be running BuildSmart's Ultimate BadAxe 2 solution which will allow you to run a regular untouched install of Mac OS X (you actually boot from the retail disc.) Everything works out of the box so you don't have to look for certain kexts and you can upgrade without fear of breakage. Please note that it does require a GUID partition so if you're running off of an MBR, you would need to re-partition to make use of it.
  2. [How to] Install 10.5.2 Update [TUTORIAL]

    Not to nitpick, but that should be: sudo dmesg | grep dsmos
  3. Leopard install on a Dell

    The 3945 will not work. From what I've read, the Dell wireless does. Not sure about the wired ethernet or audio, but my guess is that you'll be fine. The ATI should be fine too. Good luck!
  4. Leopard install on a Dell

    You know, it always helps to list what kind of system it is that you're talking about. At least with a bit more detail than, "It's a Dell."
  5. You can't disable ACPI in the BIOS on the D830 (and I'm guessing the D630.) I've gotten OSX to install by doing a VMWare install and then converting it to native. VESA only since there are no drivers for the X3100 chipset nor the 3945ABG and I don't remember if the wired ethernet works either... FYI, Pat
  6. Problems installing on a Dell D830

    Just a quick update. I was able to install via VMWare and get chain0 booting working via the Vista boot loader. No networking or sound yet and there is no chance of support for the X3100 graphics until hopefully the 10.4.10 release (crossing fingers. :-)) On the plus side, both cores are working fine which was an unexpected surprise.
  7. Will Mac OS X work on it?

    Doubtful it will work straight away if my Dell D830 is any guide. I'm trying a VMWare install now to see if I can get it going.
  8. Problems installing on a Dell D830

    I'm sorry I wasn't more clear... The messages I stated above were from the boot DVD. I can't even get to the point of installing. :-)
  9. Problems installing on a Dell D830

    Yeah, I forgot to mention that I tried booting with "platform=X86PC" and and "platform=ACPI". Same problems although the output changes slightly with "platform=ACPI". Looking at that file you provided, it looks like you're just passing platform=X86PC and -legacy (which IIRC boot the kernel in 32bit mode.) So unfortunately, it looks like I'm a bit outta luck for the moment. :-) Thanks for the help, though.
  10. Hi, I got a Dell D830 from work and wanted to put MacOS (or even Linux on it.) I've got the uphuck 1.3 DVD and JaS's 10.4.8 with PPF1 and PPF2. Both get stuck at the same spot. When booting with '-v debug=0x144 io=0xffffffff' the boot gets stuck at: IOAPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 0:23 Registering: ../io-apic@fec00000/AppleAPICInterruptController config(3): creating config(35e5050): terminating Then it just hangs indefinitely... The Dell D830 (and D630) use the new "Santa Rosa" chipset (Mobile Intel GM965 Express). Got any advice on how to proceed? As a side note, I can't get FC7 or Ubuntu 7.04 to install either. The DVD drive just isn't visible under FC7 but it is under Ubuntu if I pass 'all_generic_ide' to the kernel. But then X can't start. Fun, fun, fun. :-) Thanks in advance for any help.
  11. I've got a D830 that came today from work and I can't even get it to boot the JAS 10.4.8 PPF1&2 DVD. It hangs in the ACPI initialization. On top of it, I can't even get Ubuntu 7.04 to install (can't see the CD in the kernel.) Pat
