  2. Snow Leopard on Dell Optiplex 745

    I am struggling to get a bootable Snow Leopard on OptiPlex 745. I have already installed Atkos L2 and it boots till a point when I see grey logo with a line through it in the middle. On doing "-v" option, I see that the core issue is this: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- rooting via boot-uuid from /chosen: CA0179A4-B09C-3B0E-84F7-8AB2EFB7DBDE From path: "uuid", Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID="1">IOResources</string><key>IOResourceMatch<key><string ID="2">boot-uuid-media</string></dict> Still waiting for root device ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have two questions: 1. How do I force Apple to always boot in "-v" mode. (Its been a struggle to insert that at each boot trapping the startup of the OS) 2. How do I resolve this above error ? What does it mean "boot-uuid-media" and then waiting for root device ? Will flags like "arch=i386" and "npci=0x2000" help here ? I would like to understand the Mac OSX operating system rather than just trial and error so need someone knowlegeable who can explain me what exactly is going on.
  3. OS X 10.7 (Lion) install on Dell Optiplex 745

    Hi BugsB, I need your help again. I am trying to install a video display driver so I can view it in 1920X1080 resolution. I tried using the NVEnabler.ext but failing to do so. Can you give me some precise steps I should follow to get the display driver installed ? Thanks again in advance,
  4. OS X 10.7 (Lion) install on Dell Optiplex 745

    Thanks again. Though your suggestion above did not work but you still helped me indirectly through your former post where you suggested the following: I am now succesfully logged into the app store, after extracting the Ethernet card's EFI string w. EFI studio, adding the following code into org.chameleon.Boot.plist <key>device-properties</key> <string>4b00000001000000010000003f0000000100000002010c00d041030a0400000001010600041c0101060000007fff0400160000006200750069006c0074002d0069006e0000000500000001</string> restart, app store, login Before it wouildn't work ("Device not recognized") Thanks again.
  5. OS X 10.7 (Lion) install on Dell Optiplex 745

    Thanks BugsB, That was great help. It worked fine. I am hitting another issue when I try to login to App Store. It says "Your device or computer could not be verified. Contact support for assistance." I have already tried this and it did not work: 1) Delete the file Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist 2) Restart OSX 3) Try logging into Mac App Store again. Do you know how to resolve this?
  6. OS X 10.7 (Lion) install on Dell Optiplex 745

    I need help with the Ethernet Driver. I am not able to install using instructions provided on Wiki. Ethernet: BCM5722D.kext [18] (latest version with device ID string corrections in info.plist). Cannot login to AppStore unless the EFI string of the ethernet device is injected in com.apple.Boot.plist (use EFI Studio 1.1 [19] to extract string). I do have a Broadcom Ethernet Card and I checked the compatible Windows drivers and this had worked on windows " Broadcom 32bit 57XX/59XX W2K/XP/Vista Gigabit Ethernet Driver" Very new to Mac OS. Please help me with precise instructions how to install an Ethernet Driver using BCM5722D.kext or whatever you recommend.
