  1. grub2 and macx86

    Hi, need some help to boot my mac os x86 install.Searched the forum but didn't found the right solution. On the first drive i have windows 7 followed from a data drive and ubuntu 10.04 beta. On the second HDD from my old macbook i have my osx install. The problem now is, when i do a "sudo update-grub" in ubuntu Terminal, Grub found mac osx on the second hard drive. One with 32 bit and 64 bit. But when i try to start from that it gives me errors like no xnu kernel. When i start mac os x from the boot cd i must every time enter busratio=25 for my core i5. How can i load grub and then switch to chameleon for osx ? In my osx i have chameleon installed i think. An extra folder exist. thanks!

  3. possible to install on h55 chipset ?

    ohhh, yeahhhh, got it working! After i tried all boot cd i took tonymacsx86 P55 Boot CD and i came to the installation screen. I switched to the Snow Leopard Retail disc and started with boot:busratio=25 for my core i5 661. After that there was white lines with some errors and falses, but i came to the install screen. I chose the disk utility and formated my harddrive with hfs+ journaled and GUID Partition. I took 30 min to install, it was really slow and at the end there was an installation failed! and i restated. I took tonymacs boot cd back in and selected the hard drive and booted with boot:busratio=25 again. After a short moment of waiting i could finish the installation. I have now a running Mac OS X 10.6. My Motherboard is the GA-H55M-USB3, the bios is F6, and i changed HPET to 64 and for the Hard drives AHCI. What can i do now for the Sound, Network, and Graphics ? The Graphics stuck at 1024 x 768. And can i save update from 106 to 10.6.3 ? Try to make some pictures
  4. Hi, sold my macbook a while ago, and build a new system for ubuntu. I want to know just for fun, if it possible to install snow leopard on a Gigabyte GA-H55M-USB3 with a core i5-661 processor with integrated graphics. thanks
  5. New AMD DVD for leopard

    I wrote yesterday that i have problem with the loop in the do you own a mac screen. Thanks to you people i have solved the problem. I booted into single user mode and gave thge root a password. But i have still another problem. I searched the forum but can't find an answer. If i want to reboot with the dvd it says mach reboot. If i put the system down he says cpu halted. But he did not shut down. Some people in the forum says to replace the kernel. The cpu is a amd semprom 2800+ and ready for sse2/sse3. The another Problem is that i can only boot with -x.

  7. Leopard won't let me resize partitions

    You have to do it with the cd. Idefrag only offers a "qick defrag", but we need a full defrag. That can only be done with a second mac or a cd. The quick defrag will not work. I have tested it
  8. Leopard won't let me resize partitions

    Hi, if i understand right, you will format your osx drive so that you have 2 Partitions. For example one for osx and one for windows. The answer is defrag the osx partition. That's what i did. The Problem here is that it is not so easy. The way i choose was to download a tool called "Coriolis CD Maker" and than you can create a boot DVD from the Internet. I choose system 10.4.9 for my Leo. The dvd has a copy of idefrag on it. You must have a registered copy of idefrag!!! I think a other solution is to boot up another mac, with your mac in targed mode. So that the other mac can mount your partition. With i defrag only the full defrag is a solution. With the "quick online defrag" it would not go. hope it helps.....

  12. background color for 2D Dock?

    Ok. After a long day of searching, i think there is no background color for the 2D Dock. I have changed my wallpaper. The Dock seems to have the same effects as the Menubar. If you choose a darker wallpaper the Dock becomes more transparent. When you choose a white Wallpaper it becomes grey.

  14. background color for 2D Dock?

    Did anyone know how to change the 2D Dock color? I mean which file does the color? In another forum we gat so far: the only thing i want to change know is the color.
  15. I changed the icon under /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder and changed inside the Dock.app the .png File for the Finder. Restarted the Finder andmake a killall Dock in the Terminal. How do i can change it?
