  1. Some questions re new Hackintosh install

    Thank you for your gracious help Gringo: I managed to solve the two problems above quite simply. You did mention that I may add new software compatible with 10.5.5. Does that not include the OS. ( must I get another x86 installer or can it be done via the Mac Store. And what about adding additional drivers from the developers sites . can that be done. These and more questions are making me mad. Sta bon
  2. Glory Be! I finally managed to install Mac 10.5.5 on my older Compaq Presario with an intel celeron cpu. Knowing very little about these devil machines I never thought I'd actually be able to do it. Unfortunately I still have a couple of questions to ask. 1. Will I be able to add new software to this install 2. If so, mores the pity because my network doesn't seem to be working properly - When I try to download anyting the download has an initial speed of between 15 -20 Kb/s then starts to drop precipitously until within a minute or two the download just stops. BTW when I checked in Network under system prefs it shows the following: configure using DHCP IP address = Subnet mask = Router = (My Belkin router attached to a cable modem) 3. I also have no sound, though I know the sound works as it worked well in a previous install on the same machine is there a solution for this problem

  6. I am using a five or six year old PC Loaded iAtkos i5 successfully in fact I was even able to update the OS and add a couple of applications. But when I tried to reboot the computer after update it refused to, saying that it was unable to as it would damage my CPU. Can anyone help me to get past this point without damaging my computer.
