    10.4.11 > 10.6 Upgrade Question

    Yeah, when I mean update I ordinarily mean just a clean fresh wipe like I would with my PC's. So it will work? Why is it that Apple says you should buy the more expensive Mac Box Set? Just to get the money from you from iLife 09? I'll be guessing the Update version of Snow Leopard doesn't include it then. Cheers for your help though, there is just a bit of mud in the information.

  2. Mac Information: Model: iMac Model Number: iMac7,1 OS Version: 10.4.11 Processor: 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Memory: 1GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM (One slot free) Graphics Chipset: ATI Radeon HD2400 128MB According to MacCPUID: Genuine Intel Processor: Yes Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 2.00GHz Family: 6 (06h) Model: 15 (0Fh) Stepping: 10 (0Ah) Hello everybody, long time since I grazed this site. Currently, I have a Mac running 10.4.11, working fine with no problems. But I want an upgrade at long last. Now, I read somewhere (Here actually - http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=10271723) that the Mac above will not support a Snow Leopard installation? Its an Intel processor and will run 64bit on any other operating system, what is it that is holding it back from not working here? The reason for asking, is I want to buy a cheap license to upgrade to 10.5 then immediately up to 10.6 Here states that you only need 1GB of RAM - http://www.apple.com/uk/macosx/specs.html Here states that I would need to buy a much more expensive pack to upgrade straight from 10.4 to 10.6 - http://store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Images/p...ts-overlay.html Does anybody have the answer as to why this confusion is about? Is it possible to upgrade at all? Thank you in advance guys, TheFighter

    nForce 650i series on SATA?

  4. I am looking to purchase a new computer, my other is 2years old now. I would like mac, but had previously not been able to do so because of the nForce troubles on SATA with AMD. So I gave up in the end, didn't have enough spare time to bother. Now I'm looking to buy an Intel with the chipset of nForce 600i series (specically, I'm looking at the NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI MCP) would this be supported straight by the Mac OS or would it need a separate driver like the one coded by 'medevil' and 'bikedude880'? The only reason I am wondering if it would be a straight support, is because it is the Intel version. Thanks guys in advance TheFighter

    nForce SATA

    Your very enthusiastic just like I was, but your smarter than me and know whats going on. You know what your looking for, which I never did so I was never really much help, I just did many trial and error tests, pretty much everything was error though lol. Ask planetbeing, he offered his services at one stage and now that you have researched into it more he may be able to help. If I can add assistance dont hesitate to ask. I may be able to move all of my things to my other computer and then I can try this worry free. I have 6weeks free starting tomorrow, so I will probrably get bored and try this again. I haven't missed much in the time I have been inactive. TheFighter Edit: Before I forget, what versions of the nForce driver for windows is everybody running? When I updated it messed up my boot times, slowed it right down. And that really annoying hopswap feature to. Do you used the one for AMD only or AMD/Intel?

    A tip jape, give up. Writing a driver is the only way to fix this, and this is way beyond my capabilities. If it wernt I would have done it already. There is no n00bish programming documentation for programming a driver in mac, it all asumes you know what the hell its talking about. So, if you want to ever get it working, become a hero and write a driver for it. Otherwise, give up and just buy a pata hard drive.

    nForce SATA

    Information required: Motherboard Chipset Hard Drive and Hard Drive Type (SATAI or SATAII) BIOS Is Hard Drive under the Silicion Image Controller on windows? Different Hard Drives on different channels? And of course if OSX works for you or not. To anybody who cares, good luck. I've given up with OSX now, I can't write a driver I haven't the abilities nor resources to learn. And there is no information available about the nForce Drivers because they are all closed source, due to marketing. Hopefully progress will be made, but I've tried my best to input information into this, and nothing has come out of it. So I don't see why I should bother anymore, because nobody has a need for it obviously. TheFighter

    Maybe its just certain people's BIOS are not new enough? My mobo is an ASUS, and I know the BIOS isn't very good....according to this the Silicon Image Controller just wont work because the BIOS doesn't support it. So anybody who its working for, also tell me if your HD drive is in the Silicon Image Controller. Thanks guys

    Earlier a good point was made myzar about the differences between nForce 3 & 4. Can some of you please post, your chipset and motherboard, your hard drive and if its SATAII. And of course, if its working for you or not Thanks Passing note - I hate work
