  1. Got my hackintosh up and going just like I want it: Dell XPS M1530 Nvidia 8400 GS 128MB 4GB RAM 500GB hard drive Chameleon bootloader (latest release) Problem was that I was tinkering with the hibernation feature and some apps that enabled it. The system went into hibernation just fine but now I can't boot into OSX. It just stays on the Chameleon boot screen. I've tried -x, -f, -nowake, -Forcewake=y, with no luck. How can I boot back into OSX?
  2. Great guide. I started with zero Mac/Hackintosh experience and this guide got me running Vanilla SL on my M1530. Took most of the weekend, but I got it going. One issue, though, related to the trackpad. The ALPS trackpad on my M1530, while it does work, is way too fast/sensitive and I have no trackpad icon in Systems Preferences. What do I need to use to get trackpad preferences, 2-finger scrolling, etc?
  3. Thanks to these forums and several good guides for the XPS M1530 laptops, I've got what appears to be a 95% working Hackintosh. Got my Vanilla SL up and going and upgraded to 10.6.4. Dell M1530 laptop C2D 2.5Ghz 8400GS 128MB dedicated graphics 4GB RAM 500GB HD Spent a ton of time on it this past weekend. Did some bad things, had to reinstall 4 times, but learned a lot in the process (this is my first Mac experience). While it's not much, I'm proud to just be at this point. No trackpad options in System Preferences. There is no icon for the trackpad. The basic trackpad functions work, but it's way too fast. According to the ALPS trackpad guides, I need to edit info.plist that is in the Trackpad.prefpane file under S/L/PreferencePanes. How do I do that? I can open it using TextEdit, but can't save it. What's the best driver/kext for the M1530's trackpad (it's an ALPS trackpad)?

Did some bad things, had to reinstall 4 times, but learned a lot in the process (this is my first Mac experience). While it's not much, I'm proud to just be at this point. Got 2 problems that are probably easy to solve, but I can't figure them out. 1) No trackpad options in System Preferences. There is no icon for the trackpad. The basic trackpad functions work, but it's way too fast. According to the ALPS trackpad guides, I need to edit info.plist that is in the Trackpad.prefpane file under S/L/PreferencePanes. How do I do that? I can open it using TextEdit, but can't save it. 2) How do I confirm that both cores are active? When I click on "About this Mac" it shows the right CPU, but says I only have 1 core.
