  1. Processor AMD A8-5500

    I can't really get OSX86 working besides 1 installer worked, and then I couldn't boot it up, and I couldn't boot up any other installers. It just restarts immediately after loading kexts and it says something about legacy usb but it restarts so fast it's hard to read. I've tried all of these flags For installer I used: "Kernel Cache"=\amd arch=i386 DSDT=0 -v But that did not work for the installed version I realize this processor is fairly new and I google'd it with osx86 but no results.
  2. Hi, I got sound working pretty well in snow leopard with Voodoo HDA, but I have to change my sound output device to switch between headphones and laptop speakers. It must be simple to fix this, but I'm a noob. Can anyone advise?
  3. boot repair needed

    I think Chameleon can be installed with a Linux Live CD but you would have to get the exact steps. Something to the lines of dd boot0 to hard disk, boot1h to osx partition, copy boot to osx partitition root, finally set osx partition active.
  4. FIrst of all, here is how I am currently booting: 1.) EasyBCD -> NST Mac OS, in the nst_mac.iso file I changed the com.apple.boot.plist but it totally ignores anything I put in there! The NST Mac OS entry's chameleon auto selects my Hazard installer partition but not my main mac system install. That's all I want it to do. Can anyone help?
  5. Carbon Lib [FIXED]

  6. I'm falling in love all over again with MacOS. It was the first OS I ever used, when I was in grade school, I was addicted, admittingly so bad that I pee'd my pants once because I did not want to get off it. But eventually everything was switching over to Winblows. I had a PC and still do, but switched over to Linux a couple years ago, and Linux is great, however I don't like Linux's software base - it just doesn't keep up with what Mac / Windows has to offer. Now I have Snow Leopard, and all my favorite apps, it's so fast and sexy - there's no question to me that my favorite OS is now Mac. I don't know if I'll ever leave. I just hope I don't {censored} myself again LMAO.
  7. I don't need assistance with this anymore (Installed SL via ISO restored partition instead), but someone else might?
  8. Hello, I have OSX dd'd to a partition, which has a 20GB capacity. Disk utility reports 4.6GB is used and 412MB is available. The size of the raw format image was approx 5GB, but how do I increase this now that it was installed?
  9. Graphics messy if not in safe mode...

    Hi, thanks for the reply, I fixed it with a patch called GMA900-Fix by Diabolik or something, forgot the exact name. Then I also had to remove all of the GMA950 kexts and leave the Intel915 kext there. Interesting what different combinations work for different people!
  10. Hello, I have been trying to get OSX to work on my Toshiba and I find it hard to back down from this challenge with limited resources - DVD burner is broken, and I only have a 4gb USB stick. I acquired a VMware image after trying several different ones to finally get one that worked, which is version 10.4.7, converted it to raw with qemu-img and DD'd it to the partiton. So when I booted it, it was very fast to get to the GUI but 70% of the screen is black and most text is missing and everything appears like blue squares. I was able to get around this by getting into safe mode. I have a intel 945, but Mac OS identifies it as a Intel GMA 950. I tried removing the GMA 950 kext and deleted the kext cache and repaired the permissions, then I rebooted but it still had the same issue, so I am not sure which kext is causing this, or why in safemode it works. Can anyone help me?
