    SnowLeo and crossfire

  2. Alrighty guys I have tried everything I know to get OSX installed on this laptop. Please help! I have downloaded many different prebuilt iso, iATKOS_v7, iPC X-DL OSX86 10.5.6 LiveDVD, leo4allv3. None of these work. I have also tried to follow the USB method here for Snow Leopard installing-snow-leopard-for-osx86. Nothing works. Basically it will show the initial darwin screen but when you hit enter to load into the osx installer is go black and then reboots. I have tried all the boot flags there are, -v -s -x etc......to no avail. This laptop is brand new and uses a core i7 Q720. The motherboard chipset is a PM55. GPU = ATI 4830 1gb gddr3. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    Which Cleaner for Heatsink?

    Denatured Alcohol is the best to use. Anything about 70%. Anything like paint thinner or nail polish remover will fry your cpu due to the particles added to add scent, etc.

    Jerky Video Playback & PCMCIA Power shut off

    I had the same problems with my external USB drives. I fixed this by going in my bios and disabling legacy USB support. (It forced OSX to use USB2.0 in essence)

    OrangeWare for Atheros AR5001x+

    You need to download StuffIt to extract the files and then install them like normal. I tried the drivers and when I go to start them it tells me that it can not run on this computer.
