  1. I'm having the same issue w/ the screen. However it hook it up w/ external monitor so that's not a big issue for me.
  2. It depends on the version although all of them looks white. When the stick arrives, look for the back for FCC ID (last 2 chars). Mine is V4 and after several trials i find this one actually works: http://download1.opendrivers.com/uploaddrv..._2010_04_06.dmg For V1 sticks download RT25xxx from this site: http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=3 Hackintosh update: I finally be able to adjust resolution of the external monitor to 1920x1080 with SwitchResX. I have to manually enter the custom resolution and let the system calculate the refresh rate (59.99xx Hz instead of 60 Hz by default).
  3. @Lifelike: you can buy TP-Link WN321G. It works great w/ OSX and Backtrack too: http://yltan.com/blog/tp-link-tl-wn321g-wi...or-mini-review/ Packet injection i'm not sure but monitor mode definitely works.
  4. It happened to me too after I update to 10.6.8 via software updates. It seems that you have to reinstall IOPCI and some kexts to make it work: http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2011/06/mac...068-update.html I tried but it didn't work for me. At one point I was able to boot 10.6.8 but cannot get GraphicsEnabler=yes mode to work. I tried to reinstall [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] but it failed too. So I reinstalled everything and happy with 10.6.7 again. Current status: - External monitor 1920x1080 does not work (the option doesn't appear in Display settings/tried SwitchResX but it said inactive???) - Wifi works with TP-Link WN321G (only $10) - Microphone does not work, sound and webcam work though.
  5. Thank you very much for detailed guidelines I followed your instructions and here's my process: * Preinstall: - Since I already had Windows 7 and don't want to erase the existing installation so I use transmac(http://www.snapfiles.com/get/transmac.html) to make bootable usb install of the retail DVD 10.6.3 - Replace OSInstall.mpkg with the file downloaded from http://deviato.wordpress.com/2010/05/06 ... ard-disks/ ( I tried to replace both files as the instructions but failed on the other file. Replace only 1 worked for me) * Install: - Boot with ibootlegacy (no flag) - Choose USB stick - Proceed with installation After that I use your attached files in that topic with instructions. The first time I ran the update compo from Apple it hangs and messed around with my RAM so that I could not even start Win 7 normal. Memory test diagnostic tool said it's the hardware problem but can't fix it. So I use HirenBoot CD run memtest 86+ and after that it went fine (Mac drive is still corrupted) On second time I got it working as expected. Installed chimera but it didn't work. Then installed Chameleon, switch to Windows 7 add new boot record for Mac drive (using EasyBCD) and it worked. Couple of issues so far: - Wifi doesn't work even after installing the enabler - The original flawed Chimera is still there. My boot sequence goes like this Chimera(failed)->Win 7 Boot Mgr -> Chameleon. Is there any way to remove Chimera? Also using Chameleon I have to set bootflag GraphicsEnabler=yes all the time. Is there any way to configure it? - Connect to external monitor before the boot does not work (kernel panic error). And it doesn't support 1920x1024 resolution - Cannot go to stand by mode, sometimes restarting hangs Lifelike27 you rock!!!
