  1. Found a way to make a Bootable USB Key with Mac OS X. http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=130962
  2. Now what I'm working on is creating a clone of my Leo Install Disk and installing it to an External Drive. This way, I can use the USB Key and the clone of my Leo disk to do an install on my internal drive. I'll report how this goes.
  3. Okay folks, :Edit: Make sure your USB key is formatted as "Mac OS Extended Journaled" first! (Otherwise, it can't clone.) It took me a while to figure this out.. so, I thought I would share with everyone. First, create your custom .ISO with the Slimbuild Application from ~Galaxy - Slimbuild Then, mount it. Clone it with Disk Utility to your USB Key. You do this by dragging the mounted images to the source/destination lines in Disk Utility's Restore section. Choose "Erase Destination." Then, Restore. Disk Utility will do its thing, then, you should see your USB Key pop up as a complete clone of your custom .ISO. Now, in order to make it bootable, you must download Chameleon. Run Chameleon and choose your USB key as your destination! Voila, completely bootable custom USB key made with OS X!
  4. Modified boot-132 Bootloader

    Okay folks, I need some help. I have a Dell 1420, 1.73Ghz with Intel Crestline Graphics. The harddrive choked on it, so I purchased a new one. I don't have a copy of Windows to install, I was using Ubuntu.. but, since I'm a Mac user, I decided to install OS X on it. Problem is, I don't know how to find out what's in this thing without running Windows. I've tried almost all of the ISO's that are available and none of them will allow me to boot the Retail DVD without going into safe mode to do so. But, then all hell breaks loose when I start adding kexts. I was wondering if anyone could shed light on the situation? Maybe some of you are using a 1420? Or, know of a way to get the specs of this machine without Windows? I know that Crestline is almost positively the X3100, not the Nvidia Mobile card. Thanks in advance from a complete OSx86 Newbie!
