  4. Mammoth, I installed the Mac Snow Leopard on 10.6.6 on HP DV9700 Series laptop. Everything is working perfectly . I appreciate creation of the wonderful Installation guide. Only thing is remaning is the installation of WIndows 7 on the same harddrive. I am unable to partition the harddrive. Is there a tool by which I can partition . Disk Utility is not allowing to partition as per my wish. Also Another question. If I partition the same harddrive using Partition Magic boot CD will the EFI or CHam partition will be disabled ?. Please clarify . $tealth
  5. Hi Mammoth, Can Snow Leopard work on HP DV9700 Core 2 Duo 2 Ghz, 4 GB DDR 3 Ram , 512 MB Nvdia 8600M GS Graphics Card and 500 GB HDD. Previously Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8 was working perfectly on the computer. $tealth

  7. 10.5.7 Released

    Software update from 10.5.6 to 10.5.7 Successful . Everything is working on my HP Pavallion DV9000 Series Laptop. HDA Sound , Nvdia Graphics, Shutdown, Sleep, USB Mouse done. Even the Trackpad is seen Apple finally fixed the USB Mouse Issue which was there in 10.5.6 $tealth
  8. Since last 1 year I have been using Norton Ghost v11 or v10 to image the Apple Partition. Its advisable to make a image when you want to update or anything. PS 20 GB of Partition of Mac is compressed into 7 GB of Image. If anything happen just reimage the partition and done don't need to reinstall the whole OS. If you have KP or Boot issue Norton Ghost is the best tool With Regards, $tealth
  9. Official Windows 7 pics

    @Freaky Mac, No offence to you matey but I give my opinion unless I have tested the things. Wait till the final version of Windows 7 comes out dude. Beta editions and Final editions are totally different so only time will tell about the things. I like MAC better than Windows Vista though Windows XP I have to use since use of CAD programs is very essential.
  10. Official Windows 7 pics

    Same old windows {censored} .....Windows 7 sucks big time no matter. Vista is resource hog .....DLL hell called as folder Winsxs ...... no use. .... Nothing like MAC OS X ....... OS X leopard or any version Rocks.

I am having Quad OS installed on the computer 1. Windows Vista ultimate x86 SP1 2. Windows XP x86 SP3 3. Kalyway MAC Leopard 1 4. Ubuntu These are 4 differenet Operating system Installed on the same HDD on different partition. Now I want to try want to try the JAS 10.5.4 Server on the computer so the question is 1.Should I try on virtual machine or the Physical harddrive ? 2. If installation is done on the physical harddrive can 2 MAC operating system be installed like dual boot for windows meaning you have kalyway 10.5.4 on one partition and you have JAS 10.5.4 on the other partition. With Regards, $tealth

  15. Vista Shadow Copies take up 20GB!

    Another reason for the space hogging in vista is saving of multiple files of in the folder C:\Windows\Winsxs which is so called "Microsoft DLL hell" .....I was able to strip it down . Now my vista is loaded under 5.5 gig (pagefile.sys on a different partition) Though I am having a Quad Boot on the laptop
