  1. HOW TO: Expand the 6 GB image to any size!

    I've done this and it works, I installed darwin, then booted back to OS X, deleted all the files from the partition and used ditto to copy the OS X filesystem over. For some reason the files /./dev/fd/3 and 4 seemed corrupted and it only worked from single user mode. But it does work. Also the partition I created seemed to matter, I got it working with fdisk (on OS X) on a single bootable HFS+ partiton. HTH EDIT I should probably note the ditto command I used was simply "ditto / /Volumes/Tiger" where "Tiger" is the name of the new partition
  2. Because the OS X install from PearPC on top of a Darwin install wasn't very stable for me I went about finding a way to have deadmoo's image use more space. So far I've had deadmoo's image running in vmware, added a new physical 10Gb drive (ironically it's originally from my Xbox), made a single bootable hfs+ partition with fdisk and then used ditto to copy over the deadmoo filesystem to the new disk giving me a 10Gb partition with deamdoo's filesystem to play with. Does all that make sense? The problem I get it that when I boot that new 10Gb disk I get the following message "This hardware configuration is not supported by Darwin/x86. (3)" So I used a bootable darwin x86 cd to boot, and get it to boot my hdd for me with the following parameter: hd(0,0)mach_kernel rd=disk0s1 And it boots and runs with the extra space ok My question is how can I get rid of using the darwin cd, why does the deadmoo image boot if I dd it to a disk but not if I copy the filesystem to a new bootable partition? I've patched everything up but I'm using a non SSE3 AMD64. Did deadmoo patch the MBR on the vmware image or something? :S EDIT: No matter I found some other thread where people had done it similar but they installed darwin first, this worked and I guess darwin installs a boot loader
  3. Problem Dual Booting Linux/osx86

    For me the following works, mine was on it's own physical disk though: I notice you have an "=" in the first line, I'm not sure that's necessary :S
  4. Update darwin to 8.2

    Hi, I've installed Darwin 8.0 x86 from the install iso on Apple's webpage but now I want to be able to run the latest Darwin 8.2 and having spent many a happy hour compiling linux kernels I thought I could download the latest Darwin source, configure and compile it. Apparently not though, I can see on Apple's site you can download individual packages for the latest Darwin 8.2 but no all-in-one package. Not to mention I can't find any docs on that site that seem to tell me how to compile Darwin Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'd simply like the most current Darwin if that's possible
  5. I just read the wikipedia articles on Rosetta and SSE3 and a this is what stood out to me: So right now making sure 3D support and things like sound are running properly in Rosetta makes good sense as these really matter to customers. I'm sure there are other reasons but this seems straight forward enough to suggest it's important to Rosetta and the anti pirate angle is a freebie. Just my random thoughts, I'm no expert
  6. removing AppleTPMACPI.kext

    IIRC you need to boot to single user mode "-s" then run the two commands to check the file system and mount it with read write privilages, at this point you are in darwin single user mode. You then need to run "sh /etc/rc" (I think it is - doing all this from memory) to run OSX in single user mode. You can then "passwd curtis" and set a new password and remove that kernel extension (is that what it was?). Reboot. After that I created a new account with root privilages, logged in with that and deleted the curtis account. HTH
  7. SATA/PCI-X Success

    I'm new to OSX, does this screenshot answer your question? BTW my SATA drive isn't recognised (my motherboard is an MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum) and I used the vmware image. Can't wait to get one of these Macs next year \o/
  8. SATA/PCI-X Success

    My Geforce 6800GT PCI-Express card works, I've only just now begun testing this so that's all I can say so far.
