  1. hello together, i am running os x 10.4.8 with a geforce 5200 fx pci. when i open flash based websites and try to scroll down the the mouse weel it is kind of slow, if there is not enough graphic power... i have a amd athlon 64 3500+ and 2x512mb ddr-ram. i have this problem with all installed browsers (safari; opera and firefox). does anyone know where the problem is? i hope it's not the graphic card.... some time before, i used the other graphic card in my computer, a sapphire x800gto². but with this one qe and ci were not supported so i bought the 5200 fx... and have this problem now... maybe there is a way to solve the problem? i am sorry for my bad english.... greetings michael

    ATI 7000 to MAC edition

    well, i am open minded, what do you suggest? my only problem is: i don't have a agp slot. there are two pci x-press slots on my sli board, but one is occupied with my sapphire x800gto². is it possible to put a different card on the other pci-xpress slot? there are also enough pci slots available! i checked the hcl list: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...#Graphics_Cards and i found a pci card which scould be completely compatible: the GeForce FX 5200 (128 MB) but there is one thing mentioned: Semthex 8.8.1 what is this, and how can i find out if my version of os x has this included?

    ATI 7000 to MAC edition

    thank you for your answer. so i have to buy a real mac edition, don't i? right now i am using a x800gto² but i have problems with the refresh rate. are there cheap graphik cards, which are full supportet? i have a install dvd with X1xxx drivers on it. if i buy me a x1050 card, will this card fully supported?
  4. hello everyone, i searched for a cheap apple mac graphic card for my pc. but the cheapest one i found was a ati 7000 mac edition for 120 euros and this is way to much. then i've got an idea: i buy the pc edition, because the 7000 card costs only 40 euros, which is very attractive. so now i have the question: is it possible to flash a mac bios on a pc 7000 card? for example, this bios: i am looking forward to your answer. michael

    colored bars after install os x 10.4.8 amd

    hello everyone, i solved my problem on my own: the version that i have has ATI X1xxx driver included, but i have a x800gto“ card.... so this time i installed the amd nvorce40 driver but not the X1xxx driver. right now i am writing @ (the at sign is on the l now...strange!!) osx and as we bavarians say: des gfreit mi narrisch, dos des jetzt klappt! i hope, that someone who has the same problem will write this post and will get help... i think that this is a great forum and i got so much information from it, so thank you everyone for asking and answering! now i will try to configure my os x, maybe i need some help later on from you guys. much greetings from the still infxckingcreadible cold munich (-10°C)brrrrrr michael
  6. hello everyone, first of all, here are the details of my pc: cpu: amd athlon 64 3500+ with sse2 and sse3 mobo: asus a8n-sli se ram: samsung ddr 400mhz 2x512mb grafik card: sapphire x800gto² with modded bios (16 pixelpipelines) hdd: 160 gb samsung IDE 5400 u/min (15 gb primary partion for osx reserved) so, i hope this is enough:-) second - the situation: i installed the 10.4.8 version with amd drivers included (nvidia40) and i used the tutorial in this forum: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=36516 i made every as told in the tutorial with the primary partition and the boot manager and the drivers. osx has been installed properly and i also activated the amd drivers, but when i try to start the os, i only get a black screen with some coloured stripes in it. sometimes there are two red stripes and sometimes the are white and blue stripes. the first time, i thought, this is some kind of loading screen, but it never changes.:-( unfortunately i cannot find any mistake during the installation process, which makes it very hard for me to fix the problem. maybe one of you experienced users can see, what i have done wrong. when i start os x, i can type some boot options. maybe i have to activate something or install some drivers in advance, but in the tutorial, nothing is mentioned about this.... maybe this one is for intel users.... i hope one of you guys can help me much greetings from the very cold munich michael

    win ipod on osx x86?

    thank you very much for your help! first i will have to make osx run on my pc, than i will try everything!
  8. hi everyone, i am planing to install the os x x86 10.4.8 on my pc and now i am gathering some informations. and many questions were answered through this forum. but now i have one topic, i have no answer for. i have an windows ipod 5g and i am using it with windows xp. when i have installed os x i guess that os x does not recognize my windows ipod. is there a way to mount a windows ipod in os x so i can transfer songs on my windows ipod using os x? i have no problem deleting my ipod and switching it to os x file system (can i use an apple ipod in windows?) the only thing is: i have about 250 playlists (one for every album) on my ipod and it took me a very long time to create all these playlists. is there maybe a possibility to save those playlists from the windows ipod and put them back on a apple ipod? thank you for your help. michael
