  1. I had a perfectly working Mac 10.6.3. I had to use following fixes to get to work : Chipset :- SuperNForceATA Audio :- VoodooHDA System Patches :- ApplePS2, IOPCIFamily Fix, IOUSBFamily Fix Now, when I updated to 10.6.6 and restarted the computer, my webcam is not working... Everything else works perfect. Can anyone let me know what went wrong and how can I fix it? Thanks!
  2. boot0: error after Time Machine restore

    Thanks for your reply. Since I am able to boot into the Windows and installed Chameleon from within Windows 7. Chameleon installed perfectly, however the system is still not booting up in Mac. When I try to boot into the Mac it gives shows me error "Hold power button to restart the computer... etc.". Is this problem happening because of the partitions on my harddrive? I have three primary partitions and one logical partition one one disk. First Primary Partition is Windows 7. Second Primary is NTFS where I have music and videos and some setup files. Third Primary Partition is Mac OSX partition. Then I have a extended logical partition where I have this time machine backup.
  3. Hey, I had a perfectly working hackintosh based on SnowLeo running on 10.6.6 and it was dual booting with Windows 7. Then i made a time machine backup of the system. After that I was playing with a driver and it messed something up and the system did not boot anymore. So I decided to make a restore from Time Machine. The restore runs well, but as I was trying to boot i got the boot0: error. Now i used my Windows 7 dvd and using Diskpart I am able to log into windows, but i could not log into OSX. Any help out there ?
  4. Need help osx86 10.6

    Do you have a installation DVD from Apple? or do you have SnowLeo OSX86?
  5. After like 25-30 installs I got the Snow Leopard (10.6.6) working on my Laptop. everything works except for the webcam and wifi. Can anyone help me figuring out how to find and install my drivers? My Laptop configuration is here: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...ium_Notebook_PC I also have a time machine backup when the webcam once worked. Can I extract drivers from that backup and insert them to my new setup. Also I want to make a backup image of this system so that I can reinstall incase anything goes wrong... I used to do this by using acronis inage backup in windows, how can i do this in mac osx? I have tried to recover from time machine backups in past but they dont work right for me. Is there any third party application?
  6. How to install drivers?

    I have kext helper v0.7. I downloaded NVenabler.kext from google and then installed it using kext helper app. It said everything looks fine, restart with fingers crossed. So I restarted my computer, now it wont turn on. It says "You need to restart your computer, hold down the power button fr several seconds or press the restart button". Any Help? Can I delete that .kext without having to reinstall the whole OS?
  7. How to install drivers?

    I have an HP HDX16t and I found a guide to install the OSX on my laptop here : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=135562 I have tried to install OSX86 using iDeneb v1.4 and v1.5.1 but whatever configuration i try they are not enabling my nVidia drivers. I am new to installing drivers on OSX so i do not know how to start... Lets say I have a running OSX on my laptop and I want to install video drivers to it (NVIDIA Geforce GT130M, 1 gb), how do I do it? (in windows there is a *.exe file, but how to do this in OSX?) Thanks for help!
