  1. Hello, I am currently on an HP xw4600 Workstation with my own custom DSDT. The USB was sketchy, so I did IOUSBFAMILY rollback in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and it worked until the next restart, the USB showed up in System Information and so did my [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] flashdrive, but the reciever for my USB Mouse wasn't there and my USB mouse didn't work. I always use a PS/2 keyboard, but I'm borrowing a PS/2 mouse untill I get the USB one to work. Please help, and thanks!

  3. Leopard Hard Drive Files

    Hello all, Does anybody know how I can get the Leopard system files from a the hard drive of a computer on the internet? Thanks!
  4. I tried this tutorial on how to install leopard on Powermac G4 by modifying the distributions file. Guide: Install Leopard on unsupported Macs - MacRumors Forums I followed all the directions except I deleted all the extra language and printer packages so it would fit on a Single Layer disk. Then I burned the disk image to the DVD on the Powermac. The OS recognized it, in system preferences you could restart with it and you can click the installer on the DVD. But when I restart with option, the DVD doesn't show up as a bootable medium. Then, I made a mistake and acciedentally restored the DVD to the HD which currently had Tiger on it, restarted, and now it won't boot. I don't have the original Tiger install disk. What should I do? Specs from System Profiler before I killed my computer:

    You can't select EVERYTHING! What I do is record all of your hardware (specs) and pick the drivers from ipc that corrospond to your system. Also, google is your friend!
