    Do you have your mouse plugged into a usb 3.o port? if so, try a 2.0 port

    Thank you very much for your advice...10.7.3 worked, and thanks to this thread my lion install on my n5110 is working great. One question though...has there been any development for the Intel Centrino N 1030 wireless card?
  3. {Guide} DELL INSPIRON N5110

    <p>I'm having some trouble installing 10.7.2 on an MBR disk. Even with patched files, when I go to install on my selected partition I get an error saying <p>"Mac OS X could not be installed on your computer. The installer can't prepare the disk for installation. You may need to repair your disk using disk utility." <p><br> <p>Any ideas??
  4. New to the Terminal- Having trouble

    Unfortunately single user mode gives me a kernel panic, which is why i've resorted to using the terminal included on the bootcd
  5. Along my path of upgrading my 10.6.3 install to the latest version using software update (10.6.8 I believe) I've ran into a problem that I believe requires me to remove SleepEnabler. Now im not asking whether or not I should be doing this, or if its the correct plan of action to take. I want to know why the terminal is giving me so much trouble. To remove sleepenabler from my non-booting osx install, I booted into the terminal on my iAtkos S3 V2 disk. I use the following command: rm -rf /Extra/Extensions/SleepEnabler.kext which works without issue. However, when I try to run rm -rf /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext , I get an error message saying "Read-only file system" After searching around, I somewhat learned how to use umount and mount_hfs to remount the filesystem with write permissions. I don't remember exactly where I saw it, but I came up with the following command: mount_hfs -w /dev/disk0s1/ /Volumes/OSX Initially when trying to mount this I'd get an error: "realpath /Volumes/OSX: No such file or directory" I used ls to get from root to Volumes, and sure enough there wasnt an OSX listed, so i created one with mkdir. Now when I try the same command, I get another error: GetMasterBlock: Error 20 opening /dev/rdisk0s1/ GetMasterBlock: Error 20 opening /dev/rdisk0s1/ mount_hfs: Not a directory As of now i'm completely lost as to where to proceed. I have very limited experience with the terminal (in OSX and linux) so any advice given to me would have to be very basic. Also, could somebody explain to me where the error in my logic is with these commands? If thats too muchthen point me to where I could learn about how to properly achieve this. Thanks in advance
