  1. Boot Time

    I have heard of people getting their machines to boot in 15 sec. is that true? if so, how? anyone know of a guide?
  2. Weird Graphics problem with 10.5.2

    i tried the graphics update once and then it failed to boot so i reinstalled. i played around with the kexts and finally booted in and got it working. not sure what it was. but i have always had a problem with the card (sometimes when it booted it would show me vertical red and white lines) so... i bought a Geforce 8800GTS 640Mb. no problems at all now. and this card rocks in osx and xp.
  3. TUTORIAL X1600 PCIe DIABOLIK - actualizado 1 marzo

    any chance someone could translate this to English for me?
  4. i just successfully got 10.5.2 installed and running. the graphics install from the dvd didn't give me any help so used the same method as i did in 10.5.1 (link in my signature) so i can change resolutions fine now (1680x1050) and QE/CI is enabled but i have a black box covering my apple in the top left corner and when i click any menu at all (including a right click) i can't see the menu... all i see is black. anyone have any ideas?

  9. NForce SATA Controller

    So... I finally got Leopard installed on my SATA drive and got it to boot after using gparted to set the drive to boot Unfortunately i am stuck with "IOATAController Device Blocking Bus" errors now. I have heard that this may be caused by a conflicting kext(s). Where should AppleNForceATA.kext be? /System/Library/Extensions? or /System/Library/Extensions/IOATAFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins? do i need to remove any kexts? any help is appreciated.

  11. Injecting Drivers Into an Install DVD

    After injecting the AppleNForceATA.kext from MeDevil i noticed that the dvd boots but very slow. and it hangs on install when trying to install on a SATA drive. Any Ideas?
  12. NForce SATA Controller

    so i am running leopard on my PATA drive and trying to copy it to my SATA drive now that i can read/write on it. i have tried both diskutil and carboncopy and when boot to my sata drive it hangs with a blinking cursor ( _ ) i chose the make bootable option from carbon copy but am i missing something? SIDE NOTE: if anyone is using a PATA drive and 4Gb Ram and getting freezes, try removing 1Gb Ram ( worked for me ) EDIT: fixed my blinking cursor problem! i downloaded gparted and set drive to boot. (thanks spylinuxp4) but now i am stuck with "IOATAController device blocking bus" error
  13. New AMD DVD for leopard

    Weird Issues I was having a problem with a random freeze every once in a while and came across a thread saying that you can't use 4Gb RAM with a PATA Drive (?) so i tried it... 3Gb DDR2 NO FREEZING IN 48 HOURS! but is there a way to fix this? My Drives (SATA and PATA) are still not detected correctly. they are being detected at about 125-150Gb each. They should be 200 and 250 Gb. I am using Medevils AppleNforceATA.kext and i tried using the AppleVIAATA.kext from 10.4.8 with my dev ids but still the same sizes with no option to resize. Anyone have any ideas.
