    Yea I already put the bootable install on a separate partition and now I'm waiting on my RAM to come in (I ordered it today) I just wanted to know if my graphics etc. would be compatible. Thanks for replying!
  2. How to swap bootloaders Leopard

    Thanks! but one question... do I have to run install again if I update to Lion? or will Lion be bootable with my specs? (after RAM upgrade) Thanks for your reply! you saved me from an ugly bootloader!
  3. I had the same problem but upon boot type "cpus=1" and you'll boot into the os! but! you must add this to your boot file located in <drive name>/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist should look like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>cpus=1</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> </dict> </plist>
  4. How to swap bootloaders Leopard

    I was wondering is it possible to swap out the darwin bootloader for the chameleon bootloader. I used kalyway 10.5.2 to install Mac OS X Leopard on my Dell Inspiron e1705 Almost everything works on it except headphones, and sd card reader (if you know how to fix please tell me! ) Here's specs: v10 BIOS update 1GB RAM (soon I'm upgrading to 2GB because it's only $20) 150 GB hard drive Intel Video Card Broadcom Wireless card
