    so got every thing installed ok and it booted fine with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Ran the .8 combo update and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and choose [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. After install i get "acpi_smc_platformplugin timed out" and it just hangs. I've googled it and found no solutions. I have taken a screen shot - any suggestions on where to go from here? Thanks

  10. Samsung R Series Notebooks

    a big thank you to everyone so far for all your help i finally have osx booting on my r730! sorry if my questions are getting a little bit boring i'm very new to mac software. i'm using the new [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd and most things work like audio,lan,webcam the graphics resolution is 1024x768 and theres no more options so i take it it's using a generic driver? i'm still having a few problems though :(i have installed the chameleon boot loader witch loads fine and i can select osx but i get a panic and it restarts so i take it thats because ive not installed any kexts. the reason ive not installed any is because i don't under stand what ones i need. is there a guide any where or can any one give me any pointers? My hardware: Intel i3 cpu Intel on board graphics Realtek hd audio i think the wired network card is made by marvell not sure about the other hardware. if any one could give me any pointers that would be great! cheers gareth
