  1. I used the iDeneb distro to install leopard. It appears to be the most stable on my laptop as I have managed to update it to 10.5.8. I tried Kalyway 10.5.2 and its combo update to 10.5.3, but when I followed the guide I was using it cocked up using software update as it tried to go straight to 10.5.8. I reinstalled and tried using the 10.5.4 combo update, no luck there. Anyway, I tried the Boot132 method to install Snow Leopard but that failed, so then I was going to try this guide but I don't want to lost my current stable state. Could I somehow copy my Macintosh HD Directory onto another disk, then if it doesn't work, boot to that, or simply copy it back so there is no need to change the bootloader. I have installed Windows 7, Ubuntu and Fedora too and would appreciate these not being lost either
  2. Multi Boot not working properly

    From Ubuntu Forums. Got it done really quick
  3. I have made a hackintosh multi-boot with: Windows 7 Mac OS X And Ubuntu. But it auto boots Windows 7 How can I get it to load GRUB so that I can choose. I have a CD with a bootloader on it so I can choose to enter Mac OSX or Linux, but when I start Linux then it enters GRUB. When It does enter GRUB it lists all the operating systems available and can boot to any of them. Any ideas?? I also plan to install fedora to another partition. The Partition Map is: Windows: 100gb NTFS Mac OSX iDeneb 10.5.6 (updated to .7): 30gb HFS+ Ubuntu 11.04: 30 gb ext3 Fedora (not installed): 30 gb Fat32 Shared: 42 gb Fat32 Linux Swap: 2.6gb - This is just a large experiment, as I will be starting computer science at Cambridge Uni this year
  4. Broadcom bcm43xx wireless driver [beta]

    I used this patch to successfully get airport to recognise my wireless card But when I try to connect to a network it fails every time. The networks are visible, they just wont connect. Any Ideas? Edit: Never mind. I ran the network setup assistant and it connected. Weird.
  5. I have recently Installed OS X 10.5.3 using Kalyway 10.5.2 and the 10.5.3 Combo update. I then Used the broadcom patch to get airport working but it will not connect to any network I have tried. I have tried connecting to my home network, and an Ah-hoc network from my desktop, but each time the connection fails. Any ideas? Edit: I ran the network connection assisstant and it connected first time. strange
