  1. SOMEONE STOLE MY LAPTOP! smashed my car window and grabbed my bag which had my dell m1210 laptop (win xp mce and osx 10.4.8) along with my ipod and checkbook. argh!! die thieves!!! keep a look out for anyone selling a m1210 with osx thanks!
  2. that's good to hear! is anything working that didn't work before. such sleep, webcam, and card reader. let us know
  3. i used the same dvd as you alfdog. then just booted with the mifki kernel to make the speakers work saved the hassle of downloading another entire dvd
  4. yea don't bother with the 10.4.9 update you'll get stuck in a restart loop. i wanted to format and increase my partiition size anyway so gave that update a try. before the 10.4.9 update, i had installed all the other updates with not a single problem. 20 gigs is not enough once you start having fun with osx
  5. so i guess the only thing left is the card reader and the webcam huh? wow if those can be worked out, the xps m1210 will be a great off the shelf pc for osx alfdog, do you want the mifki kernel file? it's only a few megs
  6. new update: i got a hold of the mifki kernel file: mach_kernel.mifki loaded it up as suggested by mutis. speakers work now. finally, glad to have a somewhat fully functioning hackintosh
  7. hi all! new updates from my end: i did that trick mentioned by turk101 and the airport is working very nicely now. to test out all possibilities, i tried the following... I restarted into OSX a few times. Then restarted into windows. Restarted back into OSX. Restarted back into windows, hibernated, then booted into OSX. Airport worked in all instances. I have rev A03. So i guess if you have A03 then you have to put in the 1390 internal card after you are done doing the install. i checked my kernel version as suggested by mutis and got the following: Darwin username-computer.local 8.8.1 Darwin Kernel Version 8.8.1: Sat Dec 9 2:18:27 AZ0T 2006; semthex:/nebukadnezar/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_I386 i386 i386 so i guess i do have the semthex. where do i go about downloading
  8. it crashes even with the new patcher. so i don't know what's up with that. i have a new problem now. the wifi only works when i first install OSX after restarting it does not work. no matter how many times i restart OSX or if i boot into windows then restart or any other way or restarting. it just doesn't work. any help would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Ok, so i've reformatted and reinstalled a few more times. lol... i'm sure to get it right if i do it just a few more times maybe. so this time around seems like everything is working in good order (except for speakers). During the custom install, i chose the Intel 900 for video and QE/CI is enabled. the headphone jacks seem to work when i choose the sigmatel audio option as you suggested in the writeup. I'll try the latest patcher when i get home. i really hope it'll work. other than that, everything is working fabulously. i'll update whether the new patcher worked for me or not. oh and by the way... my friend is the one that bought the 1390 cards for us. unfortunately his vaio does not that that card. so if anybody needs the dell intel pro 1390 internal wifi card.... drop me a line.
  10. yesssss! got the 1390 today! installed and fired her up. detected and connected with no problems at all. i've attached a vga monitor and it works perfectly fine as an extended display. now only the speakers are a problem. any suggestions? everytime i drag the file into apploader it crashes my system and i have to restart.
  11. I did another clean install and this time I chose the additional support for gma950. I have 1280x800 resolution now but QE/CI still is not supported. I also get an error at startup. Something about 915 kext files. Has anyone tried this for Intel 3945. http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/downloads/list I installed v3 using the installation instructions. Just replace iwi2200 in the instructions with iwi3945. OS X now shows the airport icon on the menu bar and says that it is powered on. But the signal meter doesn't show anything. Also, everytime I enter in the name of a network, it crashes. Speakers still not working with this new install. Infact, everytime I drag the txt file into the loader file, it crashes. It didn't do that before One other detail that I forgot to mention. The "wifi" light on the XPS remains off throughout the whole thing. So I don't think it ever turns on. Bluetooth is ok and working great.
  12. Ok, I'm back. My Windows installation got corrupted somehow. There was a problem with HAL.DLL. I ended up formatting the entire drive and doing clean installs for both XP and OS X. I followed your guide but the speakers don't work. The headphones are working fine. I'll be ordering the 1390 card aswell. I have a 1390 express card, but it would be nice to have an internal one. Please let me know if there is any news for the video resolution. Thanks
  13. Oh and a couple other things. Will I be able to change screen resolutions? I don't have the upgraded video card. How can I make Windows be the default operation system and have OS X come as an option at boot up.
  14. Hey, Very nice writeup! I've got it almost up and running but I am having a few issues. I was just about to write that I couldn't get my speakers to work. When I played an MP3 file I wouldn't hear anything. So I tried the headphone jack and it worked. Then I pulled out the headphones and the speakers started working. Weird. Also, I have the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945a/g. How can I get that to work as an AirPort? Thanks in advanced!
