  1. Hi guys, So after I upgraded to the Mavericks GM release on my Macbook Pro mid-2012 13", I get this while booting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Inv2UbppJ60 Any ideas why this would happen? Thanks!
  2. Hi Guys, So I installed Lion using the retail DMG file from Apple using this method. Post install, I boot my Lion installation using the USB drive I made above, installed 10.7.4 Combo-Update, used a post-install utility (not allowed to use the name?) to patch my DSDT (with audio patch for ALC888). Installed the Envy24HT drivers for my Revolution 7.1 (works great!). Then I used Chameleon Wizard to add GraphicsEnabler switch. Everything is working fine, except: I get this message on my screen when I wake my Lion from Sleep (everything is the same and I can see all my open apps, except the screen gets dimmer and non-responsive): Any ideas why this is happening? Thanks in advance!

  13. Hi guys I am looking to buy a notebook on which I would be able to run Leopard comfortably with Vanilla kernel. I need an economical solution. I was about to buy a MacBook, but the configuration is not very impressive. I have bought a license for Leopard. The brands that we have in India are Dell, HP/Compaq, Lenovo, Toshiba. I am looking for something in HP/Compaq or Dell because all others have just terrible service! Is there anyone out there running Leopard comfortably on an Inspiron 1525, or any of the Studio series? I have a very small budget of 50,000 INR (about $1200 US). Please help me out. Thanks!
