  1. Nvidia geforce 8400M GS / Dell XPS M1330

    I also have the M1330 with the 8400 and can't seem to get this to work. I'm running 10.6. I've tried editing the com.apple.boot.plist file and adding the device, as well as many kTexts and also the packages suggested above. Still no luck. I see other people on the forum have had luck with this video chip on the M1330 but I can't seem to find the secret. Also, some of the techniques discussed were for 10.5. Can anybody point me in the right direction? My lack of success isn't for lack of trying!
  2. Dell XPS M1330 Guide

    I got it working on my M1330, but I have a few resources I wanted to share that may make it easier for you: How to Boot without Dell Snow CD: http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/01/twe...-chameleon.html Installing Chameleon I followed the steps above, but you can also try more of an installer technique: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=231075 Custom DSDT: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=190780 (have not done this yet, but I think I need to to get power management working - please let me know if you have done this for your M1330) kExts: http://www.kexts.com/ M1330 YouTube Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=325RrkHj9nM The comments from that video are especially helpful. I haven't tried the Nvinject video driver, but it looks like a good bet.
  3. I think farhanito's link is good. I also enjoyed this guide because it breaks down some of what goes on during the boot, and where stuff comes from / should be moved to: http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/01/twe...-chameleon.html
  4. Overclock / Speedstep / PStates

    Did you have it successful overclocked with win / linux and then when you installed OSX it started behaving funky? Or did you have OSX running fine with no overclocking, and then you decided to tweak it?
  5. Does OSX fiddle with memory voltage?

    It's just my opinion that this is handled at the BIOS level and not by the OS. It wouldn't make sense for an OS to try and adjust it. Have you checked your memory with a tool such as MemTest86?
  6. Introduce yourself.

    Hello! Just got my MBP up with OSX 10.6.6!
  7. Blistering new Hackintosh

    What? No SSD drive? As for DSDT, do you need to create a custom DSDT.aml? I saw it was mentioned at http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=190780 I haven't tried it yet, either.
