  1. Toshiba Qosmio F40/45

    So...Im getting a new machine today:)...well not new but new to me and a nice 100 pack of dvd-rs...So I thought Id try out all the osx86 stuff on it to see if I couldnt get it to work My qosmio is spec'd as follows Core 2 duo 2.4 ghz 3gb ddr2 40 gb intel 320 series ssd 750 gb storage drive nvidia geforce 8600m gt 256 mb I was wondering has anyone tried it on a machine like this? I know it has the standard realtek sound card and theres not really much else to it I won it off ebay without the hard drive and ssd and ram for 250 btw:) I thought it was a steal
  2. I am trying to figure out which release to try out on my system I have a msi-790gx-g65 motherboard am3,ddr3... cpu: phenom II x4 945 3.0ghz 250gb sata hdd 80gb ata hdd radeon 4890 1gb Which release should I use?
  3. I boot it up and it just stops about a second later and just sits there saying something about hard drive buffers but no errors. I have pentium d e2180 2.0ghz ecs g31t-m 2gb ddr2 60 gb ata hdd(the one im installing it on, I thought it might be because its ide...but I do have a 500gb sata that windows is on and its split into partitions) radeon 3870 512mb and im using kalyway 10.5.2 I tried using all kernels ...i used speedstep kernel at the dvd boot and it loaded fine and no others did...but when it finishes and reboots it just stays at the hard drive buffers thing.Will get exactly what it says if needed... Anyone else get this?
  4. I hate this setup intel g31+1ch7 (this is a ecs g31t-m) 2gb ddr2 800mhz 500gb sata geforce 6800 ultra(evga)pcie pentium d e2180 Anyone have one like this or knows it will work with a release? Let me know -mike
  5. Im about to install leo4all after 2 other non working installs of kalaway 10.5.2 I have intel pentium d 2.66ghz 2gb ddr2 667 mhz 500gb serial ata 60 gb ata(this will be me test disk so if it works it will use my 500) geforce 6800(still pretty good:P) Cheap ecs board p4m900t-m Comments:) welcome Will it work?

  6. Hello all, I have a weird? problem. System specs 2.66 ghz pentium d 805 2gb ddr 2 667 mhz 60gb pata hdd(the one im using with osx86...the other is a 500gb sata i unplug when the other is in) dvdrw/cdrw geforce 6800(evga 256 mb) motherboard is ecs P4m900t-m(via chipset) What my problem is is I get a restart your computer with a power button in the backround and a bunch of languages shown.Its a kernel panic I think because if i remove my geforce and use my onboard(VIA) graphics it boots up fine.
