  1. What is everyone using to run OSX on? The compatibility charts seem to be a bit outdated so I don't know which netbook to buy.
  2. Installing iATKOS_S3_v2 help

    Alright so I tried to burn another copy and it still didnt boot, tried it on another laptop which isnt supported but it did work up to the apple logo so the dvd works. I tired a windows 7 dvd thats burned on a dvd+r and it booted up on my nc6400 tried the iAtkos again which is burned on a dvd-r and it did not work so it might be because my dvd drive wont boot from dvd-r. Is there anyway I can extract the iso and make a bootable usb? I have read that its possible but with OSX but I don thave any OSX machines accessible here.
  3. iATKOS S3 is released!

    Didnt see this before I made a thread. I've recently gotten interested in installing osx on my hp nc6400 laptop. From my research, it appears that there are a couple of pre-made distros for pc's. I downloaded one called iATKOS_S3_v2 and while I have the iso, I burned it and I cannot boot from it, the laptop simply does not recognize it as bootable. Here is a image of the files while mounted virtually on my desktop. Is my iso corrupt or am I starting this out all wrong? Seems funny to me that the files listed are only a couple KB's when the whole iso is 4.37GB

  5. Mac G5 front panel issue

    Did real G5s blink the led for harddrive activity?
  6. Mac G5 front panel issue

    I De-pinned the led plug and directly plugged it in to the +12 and negative of a molex plug and everything works fine. Weird situation. I wonder whats causing it.
  7. Mac G5 front panel issue

    Alright I will look into that. I tested the switch with another older computer and the led lit up fine with the switch also worked fine. Does it make sense that maybe the older motherboard gave LEDs higher voltages? And my Abit doesn't give enough?
  8. Mac G5 front panel issue

    The computer works fine with another normal led ripped from another computer. Its also had the same psu since it was built and never had problems.
  9. Mac G5 front panel issue

    I bought a G5 case for $20 the other day and today I was trying to wire up the front panel with the diagrams I have seen online. My USB is hooked up and working, firewire, I dont have a connector to put to the mobo so I havent unpinned them from the plug. My issue is about the LED and PWR switch. When I press the power button, the LED also lights up and the whole computer fires up (blank screen) for about 5 seconds then it shuts off. Why is this? However if I plug in the LED and just press the switch it turns on fine. If I let it boot all the way into windows, then attach the led back to the mobo the computer will shut down. Motherboard is an old Abit IC7
