  1. Should've think of it. GraphicsEnabler = No seemed to have fix the mouse issue.
  2. thanks, I tried those, I think they are the same I was using. No change still slow moving mouse. As for the setting four mouse in sys pref changing it to the higher speed doesn't make a difference. For the slow boot kernel cache works but it still hangs a while.. but ends up booting.
  3. Hi, I managed to install and boot 10.8 but the mouse is moving real slow. I've search around and couldn't find anyone with similar issue. On the dell inspiron for Lion you needed to rollback the appleacpiplatform and IOatafamily. In this installed, I used the modified netkas IOPCIfamily to get pass the waiting for configuration begins hang. Rolling back appleacpi and ioata to 10.6 gave errors. It still takes a long time to boot pass the pci configuration and I'm wondering if this could be the issue? Once booted the system seems to respond ok, only moving the mouse seems to be an issue. Any idea? I'm using ###### with basic kext, fakesmc, IOPCIfamily, dsdt.
  4. anyone been able to use this methode in a dual boot with vista? basically a GPT formatted drive, with GUID/MBR partition, vista, and leopard retail booting from EFI? if so I really would like to know more.. thank's.
  5. Ok, so I've re-install chameleon again, and then fixed vista so it would boot. here is what I get, first vista boot loader. if i choose nst mac os I get to darwin bootloader. If i then choose os x the first entry. it never loads the kext in EFI how would I change this? could I just change the hd(0,2) osx to hd(0,1) osx? hd(0,1) being my EFI partition with boot and kext? would it boot? and if so how would you change that. i'm really close... someone? anyone? dunno why picture are not loading.
  6. so here is what i've managed to get from my HDD after installing chameleon. At this stage I get the chameleon menu, able to boot leopard with kext from EFI working fine, when I choose vista i get the non system disk error. seems like the mbr and gpt table are not in sync maybe that would cause a problem? *** Report for internal hard disk *** Current GPT partition table: # Start LBA End LBA Type 1 40 409639 EFI System (FAT) 2 409640 208790455 Mac OS X HFS+ 3 209052600 210887607 Mac OS X HFS+ 4 210888704 625141759 Basic Data Current MBR partition table: # A Start LBA End LBA Type 1 1 409639 ee EFI Protective 2 409640 208790455 af Mac OS X HFS+ 3 209052600 210887607 af Mac OS X HFS+ 4 * 210901320 625142447 07 NTFS/HPFS MBR contents: Boot Code: Unknown, but bootable Partition at LBA 40: Boot Code: Unknown, but bootable File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 1, type EFI System (FAT) Partition at LBA 409640: Boot Code: Unknown, but bootable File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 2, type Mac OS X HFS+ Listed in MBR as partition 2, type af Mac OS X HFS+ Partition at LBA 209052600: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 3, type Mac OS X HFS+ Listed in MBR as partition 3, type af Mac OS X HFS+ Partition at LBA 210888704: Boot Code: None (Non-system disk message) File System: FAT32 Listed in GPT as partition 4, type Basic Data Partition at LBA 210901320: Boot Code: None File System: Unknown Listed in MBR as partition 4, type 07 NTFS/HPFS, active
  7. Hi, Has anyone been able to do this configuration? I've had issue at first installing vista in the guid/mbr scheme. Here's how I manage to have both installed. Dell inspiron 1520 with a 300gb single drive formated as folow. 1. EFI 200mb 2. Os x leopard extended journaled 100gb 3. a 1g (minimum I was able to create with diskutil) extended journaled 4. vista ntfs Here I have to explain, when I first formated the HD, I tried to install vista in the 3rd partition but vista refused to, it would recognise it but wouldn't install. After some research I found out that it needed to be install on the fourth partition. And it worked. Now, installing chameleon v2 was also not quit straight forward, the package would not result in a working configuration at all. I'm not quite sure why but the system would not display the boot menu, it would just boot directly in leopard with a nice kernel panic (it was not using the EFI partition). I then manage to install manually chameleon v2 following munky metho for efi, but adapting to chameleon. (changing the kext to extra folder and modifying the update.sh script, installing manually boot0 to disk0 dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s1 boot to the EFI partition etc.) On the next reboot I had the nice chameleon boot menu displaying my os x and vista install. I was able to fully boot os x and everything went fine with the kext in the EFI, no kernel panic. I then tried to boot vista but obviously I had the non system disk press any key to reboot. I then booted with the vista dvd tried to repair, was finally able to do so. Buth then no more chameleon boot menu. I decided to install easybcd, and to copy chain0 of the chameleon folder in the c:\nst\nst_mac.mbr Problem now is chain0 works but then I starts directly to boot os x and I get back to kernel panic, again it doesn't load the EFI partition (kext and chameleon boot menu) I've tried tu use acronis and so on, but no windows software can deal with GTP disk.. I don't know what do do next, everytime I fix vista boot, it seems to be overwriting the chameleon boot0 or boot1h dunno which one, and when I fix the chameleon os x, vista won't boot as if he's mbr has been overwrote. I'm no GTP or mbr specialist, maybe there is something I overlook? Also, I tried to change which partition was mark as active, but with no great success. (both with diskpart and fdisk). I really need some help on this one. Thank's. Olivier
  8. The new Dell Inspiron 1520 and OS X

    ultrapotato, try with uphuck v1.4i, installed fine on my 1520, the v1.3 would not install either. good luck. as far as I know the 8600m is not working yet
  9. The new Dell Inspiron 1520 and OS X

    yes it is santa rosa
  10. The new Dell Inspiron 1520 and OS X

    ok, i've got good news, just installed with the uphuk v1.4i works pretty good. I've installed only the base system no patches at all almost everything works out of the box! ok the 8600m gt is not yet supported, no one have been able to make it work yet I think, BUT both core are working, wireless is working with 1390 sound is not working will try later to fix that sigmatel 9205 chipset, ethernet is not working but should be easy to fix.
  11. The new Dell Inspiron 1520 and OS X

    I've been able to sucessfully installed jas 10.4.8 and jas combo update but did not started to tweek anything yet. wireless, ethernet and sound should be easy to fix. graphis and accelaration are not yet available but i'm confident it will be soon. especially with 8600m since mac book pro are using it. strange that you where not able to install with a 1420
  12. The new Dell Inspiron 1520 and OS X

    ok, no succes with the uphuk universal 1.3 release, I think it is the same problem with APIC then people reported on the official tread. I'm currently trying the jas 10.4.8 and if that succeed will then try to upgrade to a more recent kernel.
  13. The new Dell Inspiron 1520 and OS X

    got my 1520 today, will make a fresh install of vista then try to install osx uphuk 10.4.9 I will post back here when I'm done. I've got the 8600 gt card and the dell integrated wireless wich I think is a broadcom 4311.
