  1. Simple problem, but I can't find a solution. Everytime i restart/turn on my osx86 machine and open firefox, it asks if i want to set it as my default browser. It's odd because it seems to remember other things like my homepage and bookmarks. any ideas?
  2. I have installed 10.5 on my Advent 7109B. It has Realtek ALC861. I have added the kext which means that it now plays sound. However, it does not seem to provide me the ability to control the overall output volume. I have tried repairing permissions and it still doesn't work. Any ideas?
  3. BN-WD54G wifi usb on dell XPS 420 working only by -x

    I have a similar setup but can't get leopard to recognize that the bluenext adaptor is a network device. It keeps saying im offline basically. How did you manage to leopard to pick it up?
  4. OSX on Advent 7109B

    I managed to get Leopard to run on the laptop. But I need to enable some wifi going. I have a blueNEXT BN-WD54G usb adapter which worked on tiger, but doesn't seem to be picked up on leopard depsite the software running.
  5. Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard [ToH]-RC2 -9a581

    I have the same problem as another user in this thread: I follow the instructions without fail, I get to the welcome screen choose my language and keyboard setup, then it asks me if I want to transfer my details from a different mac. I say no and it hangs for about 15 seconds the loops back to the welcome video and starts all over. I have tried all the other options for transfer and can't do them (as I don't have another mac). Does anyone have a solution for this problem?
  6. OSX on Advent 7109B

    Yes, it is possible. I managed to get a copy of Jas 10.4.8 and it installed without any problem. However, I made the mistake of clicking system update which ended up with a continuous loop reboot. Oh well, I want to try Leopard instead. So i'll let you guys know. If you know any drivers/tips let me know!

    I want to convert my old laptop into an osx86 notebook. First, can anyone tell me if there are any known issues with the following hardware and maybe any suggestions on a build version of osx86 that I should go with? thanks!

  8. Dual-boot osx86 with XP

    Maybe i need to provide you guys with a bit more information?
  9. Dual-boot osx86 with XP

    Right, so, I decided to go with the Youtube video version. I got a copy of Jas osx86 1.4.8 [amd -intel]. I selected to load it and got this. Any ideas on how to fix it? Maybe something to do with my motherboard?

  10. Dual-boot osx86 with XP

    I'm really keen on getting this running, but don't want to end up messing things up (I will backup). Will the jAS CD work for me?
  11. Dual-boot osx86 with XP

    Nice one. Looks like I have a Radeon 3650 HD. And that topic has a driver download. Woohoo! So, how exactly is this suppose to work? Do I simply go through an install of OSX86 then install the video driver? And will the card work enough to be able to go through the install? Is there anything else I need to consider before I go thru with this? Will the dual boot guide work for my setup? It doesn't mention anything for/agaisnt AMD and none of the other dual boot guides mention anything about AMD either. Do I ask too many questions?
  12. Dual-boot osx86 with XP

    Thanks for that. I'll have a look regarding AMD and see if I can find a USB mouse lying around. In regards to video card, is there somewhere i can check?
  13. Dual-boot osx86 with XP

    I was thinking about either using the steps in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcqYfrIn914...feature=related or the steps in this: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Simple_Dual_Boot But just concerned that maybe some of my hardware isn't compatible. I am also using a USB keyboard and a PS/2 mouse. Are there any compatibility issues with any of my hardware that you guys can see?
  14. Dual-boot osx86 with XP

    Hi Everyone, Read alot of great guides on here about doing this, but one thing that I need help with is any particulars I need to consider in regards to my PC specs. I think im gonna download jAS and use the Acronis method (unless anyone can recommend a better method). What else do I need to consider/install? any particular guide I should follow? Specs: - running XP Home SP3 - AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ 2.2Ghx - 2GB Ram - ATI Radeon HD 3600 Series - VIA SATA Raid - jmicron controler - Realtek HD Audio - 250GB Maxtor Sata Drive Thanks for any help!
