  1. Hi All, I've done some googling and haven't come up with anything. When you select the 3-finger drag and drop option for Lion, when you go to drop something there is a delay of a few seconds before it is dropped. This delay is interrupted with a click. I'd like to shorten this delay, but I can't find any information on where this is stored. Does anyone know?
  2. Create an OS image?

    Thanks, I'll take a look in to this. Basically what I'm trying to do is create a restore point that I can access via a live disk that I can use to repair my installation. For instance, last time for some reason all USB functionality stopped working, including in safe mode, which made it impossible for me to do anything as I couldn't use mouse/kb. I started all over and now I'm trying to prevent this from happening again.
  3. Create an OS image?

    I couldn't figure out how to make it back up the OS/programs instead of all data can I do that? Also, can I restore from outside of OSX?
  4. Create an OS image?

    Hi All, I've tried searching but maybe I'm not using the correct terms. I'm looking to make an image of my install to be able to be backed up from. Basically I had everything working, something borked, and I had to start over. Now I'm back with everything working and I'd like a disk image of this that I could load if things become borked again. Suggestions? Link to a topic where this has been discussed? Thanks, and sorry!
  5. Where to start?

    so I ran smartLAN in the BIOS and it seems to have reset the ethernet. All is working now.
  6. Where to start?

    ack. looks like mobo was doa.
  7. Where to start?

    Okay, so I've been working on this for a while. I had a good install that had internet but no audio and somehow I messed it up when messing with kexts so I was getting a gray restart screen prior to boot, no luck with safe mode. Anyway I deleted that and reinstalled. I got audio working, but my Ethernet isn't working- Anyway, I think I've successfully installed the realtekRTL81xx kext because it shows up in System/Library/Extensions (I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and ran system utility in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]) When I go in to my network preferences Ethernet0 is constantly switching between red (not connected) and yellow (no IP address). The wire is good because I use it for my W7 machine. The router and modem are good because I'm in on wireless right now. What could be wrong? Thanks!
  8. Where to start?

    I received the parts and assembled the box today. I popped in an old Ubuntu disc and ran the live version. All components appears to be working properly. Now I will know any issues I encounter will be related to my buggering rather than hardware. Here begins the fun part
  9. Why do you need it at school? I made it through all my schooling through my bachelor's degree without ever using a laptop in class. And no, I'm not some old man, I'm 25. Seems like you just want to take it to school so you'll be the first person to have it there, it's probably better off not going to school. Sorry, it's not what you want to hear; I'm doubtful your father will budge because he's probably right.
  10. Your Greatest Photos

    I've always liked this picture.. there's nothing really exceptional about the composition, but I still like it National Cemetery - Florence, SC, USA
  11. Where to start?

    I appreciate all of the detailed posts, it's really helping me become more comfortable with taking the dive with this. I've read a few more "tutorials" and through some more of the wiki compatible devices and decided on this build (this is not a rate my build type of question): Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3 Intel Core i5 @ 2.66 G Skill DDR3 4GB 9500GT 1GB lite-on dvd burner, ATX case, seagate barracuda 7200.12 1TB, 550W (overkill right) PSU I'm sure this thing will tear up my current rig, but I figured why not
  12. Where to start?

    Thank you for the detailed response. I was thinking I'd probably go with a quad core and some decent graphics as I expect I'll mess around with some photo/video editing. My current box runs a C2D E6750 @ 2.67GHz with 4GB RAM and a GeForce 8600GT and is powerful enough for my daily tasks, so I don't think I'd be jumping up to the i7s and beyond quite yet, unless it turns out to be more economical. I was definitively looking a a gigabyte mobo and I have a retail 10.6.0 as well as an unmentionable 10.6.3 version of OS X, so I can go with either of those. You mentioned [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and several of the wiki "setups" I was reading required access to a working Mac installation, but when I go straight to the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] homepage, it doesn't mention that. Is that dependent on what processor is being run? It looks like the most recent [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]+[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] is for the i7s and beyond, whereas some of the other stuff I was looking at did not have that. I'm really not trying to get a specific walkthrough, I'm just trying to understand the basics prior to beginning Thanks all for helping such a newb.
  13. Where to start?

    Thank you for the response. I feel a bit better about jumping in to something knowing I shouldn't get stuck on something like that.
  14. Where to start?

    so I've been reading through a lot of the mobos on the wiki and it appears to be hit or miss on whether or not I need access to an actual mac computer. How can I tell whether or not I'll need that?
  15. Where to start?

    of course. It was my intent to avoid being the guy asking a ton of questions after he was started if there was a way to avoid a lot of hassle prior to beginning. I guess there is no way other than the obvious
