  1. [GUIDE] Dell L701X (xps 17 late 2010)

    I've tried your solution with a number of different boot programs. Nawcom will not load to the Apple installation screen, however, two others will. I believe my BDROM drive is the main cause of my installation problems. Input / output errors abound in both preboot and Apple installation screen. I will use another computer to install Mac OS X to a USB drive (when it arrives), and then use it with my L701x. I'm hoping that SAM Multimedia issues are not a persistent problem once I'm using it with my Dell... *Crosses fingers*
  2. [GUIDE] Dell L701X (xps 17 late 2010)

    Hi guys, N00b here any help with my XPS would be greatly appreciated . I've tried installing 10.6.3 retail DVD on my L701x through several bootloaders and even when I get through all the bootstrap trace BPT and SAM multimedia issues installation freezes in the installation of Snow Leopard. I've tried uninstalling 12GB of RAM and only using one of my two HDDs for alternative bootloaders to the one mentioned here like [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] but the result is invariably the same. Freezing and saying necessary support files could not be copied on installation. Whilst waiting for an external hard drive I'm going to attempt to image my genuine software on one HDD to copy to the other HDD. I've looked up support for specific issues and none seems to be helpful or remedied to my situation. It's unlikely to be a hardware fault as the system performs on Windows as expected and it is only 4 months old. Thanks for the support guys . Any Q's and I'll get back to you ASAP. Hopefully I just missed something obvious! Computer Specs: i7 840QM, 16GB RAM, 1.28TB (2x640GB) HDDs, 3GB GeForce GT 445M, BDROM drive, TV tuner etc.
