  2. What is the meaning of "log as root ..."

    Meaning you have to use "root" as the name of the account and for the password, use the password you typed before. It's very similar to the account gestion in Windows. root user is the admin if you want...
  3. Help Installing iATKOS 3 v2 on Acer Aspire 4315

    When installing, how did you Customized it? Have you ticked a lot of boxes? Into Chamelon Bootloader, select the MAC OS and type "-v -f" the first time. Do you get an error? Which one? Try after that booting in safe mode "-x" and see if it works. Keep us posted.

  6. Hi guys, I'm really new to hackintosh and mac interface too, and I hard a pretty hard time to make my Geforce 8600M GT 512MB properly recognized with QE/CI. I've found numerous tutorials with antagonist procedures... Anyway, if this can help anyone using a Packard-Bell Easynote SB86 or SB87 with a Geforce 8600M GT... My laptop is initially a SB86 with a GeForce 8600M GS, but it burned (it's a known problem on these freakin' cards) so it was replaced (not by PB which doesn't want to recognized the problem) by a 8600M GT for half the price by my reseller... I had to compromise! First, I'm using iAtkos S3 V2. (I haven't tried a Vanilla Kernel yet, but I think I will soon, I'll let you guys know if I'm getting any success). On install, I'm using the following : - Default settings - Sound: VoodooHDA only - PS/2: Apple PS/2 - nVidia : Natit - Ethernet>Wired> Marvell Yukon 88E8056 (says in description that it will work with 88E8039 as well) - Laptop: Battery Reboot with the iAtkos DVD, type -s then : fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 (if 0 is your disk...) flag 1 (if 1 is your partition used) quit reboot Remove the DVD. I used easyBCD to make a dual boot with Windows 7 Pro (already installed on my machine). I won't get into this, there are countless decent tutorials about it. (NB: If Windows 7 start to cry about a broken boot, just chill out and use your Win 7 instal DVD. If it won't repair itself (it happened to me, maybe because Win 7 and Mac OS are on separate disk ?), you can use the command terminal DISKPART #list disk #select disk X // Select the disk X where Win 7 is #list partition select partition N // Select the partition N where Win 7 is #active #exit REBOOT with the Win 7 DVD still in and it should repair it automatically this time Anyway, when you'll boot on your Mac OS X Snow Leopard, type "-v -f". Should be OK. Right now you should have a pretty yet small desktop: 1024x768, and when going into "System Information", your video chip has only 32MB of VRAM. (Sound, touchpad, keyboard, CPU, RAM are OK. Graphics, Wifi (4965AGN... you shouldn't except to see it works anytime soon!), microphone, webcam are not.) If someone knows how to make mic and webcam works... Step 1 : You just have to modify slightly the following kexts: Natit, Geforce, NVDARessman, NVDANV50Hal - In Natit, change VRAM size to "AAAAIA==" which is 512MB. Move Natit.kext to /System/Library/Extensions instead of Extra/Extension (not absolutely sure you have to...) - In the 3 others : change IOPCIPrimaryMatch to "0x[Device ID][VendorID]". NVidia Vendor ID is 10de and my GPU device ID is 0407. I've set it to "0x040710de". - Repair Permission and Cache. - Reboot For the previous step I suggest you use PlistEditor to edit the kext (NB: right click on Kext>Show contents and then edit Info.plist). You could use Kext Utily or OSx86 Tools to repair Permission and Cache. Step 2 : Reboot. Your resolution should be changed (or at least you should be able to). If you can, and if in System Info you see correctly 512MB of RAM, you just have to use OSx86 Tools and click "Enable QuartzGL" then restart. Step 3 : Everything should be okay now. (for the record, I only had 128MB of VRAM recognized, I just did again Step 1, reboot and it was okay, don't really know why...). Enjoy. I hope I was clear enough and that it will actually help someone (if not, that's okay too ). I'm pretty sure there are other (better?) ways to make it work, but this one worked fine for me after trying a lot of others (especially since Wifi 4965AGN isn't working so I had to boot on Windows for internet browsing ) Now I can move on to try to make the mic and the webcam work...
  7. Introduce yourself.

    Hi everyone I've been struggling for almost a week with OS X SL, got it to run but without recognition of my graphic card... (nor my wifi card, but it's an 4965AGN so I don't stand a chance) I should be asking for help in a few days if my last attempts don't work either ... =)
