    Post 1 - Successful Install!

    OK, so yesterday I finally got OSX working on my PC properly. I've been trying to get it working for a while now, but usually lost the patience, or as soon as I got a panic, I'd quit and revert to Windows. Recently I had a lot more time to play around with it, and so with many hours reading and testing, I got it working. The end-solution is straightforward and simple - with only one panic screen (which is a common one and is easily fixed). You can find the full guide on how I installed Leopard 10.5.6 on my PC here I intend for the topic to be a full featured guide, including tutorials on how to do other things on OSX once you've got it installed. The only kernel panic I experienced so far was when I was mounting .dmg files. A quick Google search told me that this could easily be solved using the seatbelt.kext from 10.5.5. I managed to download a copy of this kext file from this board. Later I realised that on the iPC Install Disk, there is in fact an option to install this kext during installation. So if you ever have this problem, you just need to kext file. If you've not yet installed OSX and plan to use the iPC disk, just check the seatbelt.kext option in the Customisation stage. I'm no OSX expert, but will be dedicating more and more time to it, and I am to start developing my own solutions as I become more experienced. For now, thank you to all who made it possible to run such an awesome OS on such cheap hardware! Stay tuned for more tips, tricks and guides

    Leo on ze4900

    So, straight to the thing: I just installed JaS 10.4.8 to my old laptop (the ze4900, celeron m 1.4ghz, 1g ram etc) because I couldn't find any working leopard distro. I tried iPC, iDeneb, kalyway and iAtkos. None worked. The question: would someone like to find a way of installing leopard on the lappy, I couldn't. IDeneb (1.3 and 1.5.1) install disks give coreRAIDserver error with flags -v -f -x IAtkos crashes after install, iPC keeps restarting and kalyway crashes at the state where you give the activation info. And the lappy isn't connected to web. Thx for help!
  3. Hello. After i have succesfully installed Snow Leopard on my HP computer with a AMD Athlon 64 x2, It brings up a kernel panic everytime it loads. I have a Nvidia Geforce 210 1 GB graphics card. I can boot it in Safe Mode but it is super slow to add. Please help...
  4. Hi all, I've recently installed Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8 on Toshiba Tecra A8. After installation I got not working audio, touchpad, keyboard and not fully recognized video. Could anyone please recommend me kexts which are suitable for this hardware and OS?
  5. Hey everybody. I know im pretty far behind in development but....i was wondering if there were any guru's that could help me out. My Netbook: Compaq 110c-1100CA intel N270 @1.6 2GB ram 300GbHDD Intel 945g graphics broadcom wifi I have installed the iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 and a couple of kext's that i found to work nicely with my machine. everything is set up but the ethernet (don't really care about that). Long story short i tried to install this and that app/program, nothing worked, told me i had to update... so i clicked on the apple at the top left, clicked software update hoping for the best. things downloaded, it said it was installing, about 2/3 done it crashes with alot of text in the background and i think with a semi grayed out circle, telling me i have to restart my computer. My question is... 1. Can i just buy a intel copy of osx, put it in my ext-dvd and install, then load in the kexts? 2. what happened with the grey circle telling me to restart, kernal panic? 2b. if it wasn't a kernal panic, what is a kernal panic? 3. if i can update my current config, what would be my best plan of action, removing kexts, and updating? or fresh install + update then install kexts. Tl:dr i feel like im using a windows 98 machine help! Also, if there is anyone out there that needs help with this specific laptop model ill be sure to try and help you out as much as i can. hopefully i can create a guide for this specific model.

  7. Buonasera a tutti.. ho cercato e ricercato sul web e sul forum prima di creare questo topic ma purtroppo non riesco a trovare una soluzione! vi descrivo il mio notebook (nello spoiler): Bene allora ho messo il DVD, scritto -v cpus=1 busratio=20 ed è partita l'installazione.. Appena finita l'installazione mi fa scegliere tra Windows e Snow Leopard, se scelgo Windows parte e funziona tutto perfettamente, se faccio partire Snow Leopard il computer si riavvia e non so cosa fare per farlo partire per favore potete aiutarmi, vorrei installare mac os sul mio notebook EDIT: Ho provato con Snow Leopard 10.6.3 By Hazard e ora mi trovo alla schermata dove scegliere l'os.. windows funziona.. Snow Leopard fa riavviare il pc.. aiutatemi ecco l'immagine dell'errore http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/823/immaginerwq.jpg/
  8. Hey guys, I have tried every snow leopard distros i could think of and haven't had any luck. Do you guys know of any? I used IHazard 10.6.6i and it failed. I used IHazard 10.6.1_10.6.2 AMD hackintosh one and get a kernal panic after install reboot and with iatkos i get the still waiting for root device. My mobo doesn't support AHCI standards is there any way to get around it? Also i have a really weird chipset, the ATI Xpress200 series and not many distros I've seen have them. If anyone can help that'd be amazing!!!

    No Wireless on my Lenovo S10e!

    Hello Everyone I'm REALLY new to the whole idea of a 'hackintosh', i only found out about the concept about 6 months ago. I have wanted to try and make a hackintosh ever since and about two weeks ago i got hold of my unlocked school netbook (A Lenovo S10e) and immediatly researched what to do. Yes, i know it's an old machine but this is all a big experiment for me. So far i have been able to get Snow Leopard 10.6.4 working well Via S10 Snow Leopard Enabler, however i have one problem; the wireless card won't be recognised no matter what i try. The instructions that come with the enabler say that wireless should work "out of the box" but it doesnt, Bluetooth DOES work however. The Enabler also says that audio, full screen resolution (1024 x 576), sleep, two finger scrolling and wired Ethernet SHOULD work and i can confirm that they do, it's just the wireless thats the problem! My Machine's Specifications: - Intel Atom N270 @ 1.6GHz - 2 Gb DDR2 SDRAM - 160Gb Fujitsu HDD - Intel GMA 950 - Broadcom Bluetooth I think the wireless PCI card is this: Broadcom BCM4312M I previously have Windows 7 installed on this machine and the wireless worked fine Thanks in advance for the help anyone can render!
  10. Salve ragazzi, Io ho un Packard Bell Easynote TJ75 sul quale volevo installare OSX, ma ogni volta che provo ad avviare il disco di installazione si riavvia bruscamente il pc. Non so se dipende dal fatto che è un Intel Core o dalla scheda madre (HM55), so solo che non ottengo che fallimenti. Qualcuno ha qualche dritta da darmi, per favore? Hardware: Modello: Packard Bell Easynote TJ75-JN-201IT Chipset: Intel HM55 Processore: Intel Core i3 330M 2.13GHz RAM: 6GB Grafica: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 1GB
  11. Premessa: questa è una guida, non un tutorial su problemi banali. Per poterla utilizzare occorrono conoscenze minime del mondo Hackintosh. NON risponderò a domande generiche del tipo: "come si fa a flashare il bios" "come faccio a mettere l'id della mia scheda nel kext" "come installo questo kext" etc, etc. Per le risposte a tali domande esistono le F.A.Q. Tali domande non verranno degnate di risposta senza alcuna spiegazione. _____________________ Leopard 10.5.8 Guida installazione su Asus P6T Deluxe (Versione 1 - 2) Premessa. Non ho mai avuto un vero Macintosh, comprai questa motherboard e CPU nel diciembre del 2008 su un famoso sito di aste-online, Inizialmente scoraggiato per questa nuova incompatibile architettura e sulla impossibilita' di poter installare OSX su questo l'Hardware iniziai a documentarmi. Inizialmente l'installazione non era lineare ma incominciavano a vedersi i primi risultati con distro patchate.

Ultimo riavvio! Anche questa volta riavviate con flag -v -f (Sara' l'ultima). Ora avrete il sistema configurato e pronto per essere usato... Godetevi il vostro Leopard P6T_Deluxe_10.6.x.V.1.rar

    My First OSX Desktop

    Here's a screenshot of my OSX desktop, just by looking at it I feel more productive than I have ever been on Windows. It's just a default desktop, with a custom wallpaper. TIP: You can easily save a screenshot to a File in OSX by pressing Command+Shift+3. The file automatically gets saved to your desktop! Simple but effective. I think it just looks excellent without any customisation. Comparing to Windows, I needed several different applications installed to get a custom look, an it still didn't look as nice as this. TIP: I've found Spotlight to be my best friend on OSX. It's Apples built in application launcher. To use it just press Command+Space at any time. Enter a few letters of the application/file that you are trying to open and it should find it automatically for you. Hit Enter and the selection app/file will open. You can even use it to look up terms in the dictionary. Just enter any word, and one of the results will show a definition of the term!

    I Miss Home :( (and End)

    This is one of my biggest problems with Mac at the moment. I'm using a Microsoft Wireless Laser Keyboard 2.0 and found that the software to use all the hotkeys was available from Microsoft. 'Brilliant' I thought, perfect working keyboard. All my keyboard hotkeys seem to work, including multimedia control, Print Screen and Browser/Mail access. However, the basic Home/End keys don't seem to work, and so far I haven't yet found a solution. As mentioned in my Install Guide I had a nightmare trying to write that guide because OSX's start of line shortcut is CTRL+LEFT, but in Firefox that's the shortcut for Back (to previous page). This meant that I kept going back a page instead of to the start of the line, and lost a lot typing because of it. The guide took me at least twice as long to write than it should have. Anyway, I later found a Firefox extension that makes the Home/End keys work within the browser. It's in the 'experimental' stage, but seems to be working well for me Download it here If anyone has a global solution for all applications then it would be great to hear about it!

    Intel PRO/1000 MT on Snow Leopard

    Hi all, After several attempts and tests I've got flawlessly working Dell Precision 670 workstation under Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I used Nawcomm ModCD 0.3.2, Nawcomm's legacy kernel 10.6.8, ##### SL 3.10.1 with my own generated DSDT (without patches). Everything works fine except NIC. I could not bring to life onboard NIC so I started to test various PCI NIC cards. After some research I decided to buy refurbished PCI-X Intel PRO/1000MT DUAL (Intel 82546EB chip). I assumed the card will work because I found it was sold by Mac accesory producers: Sonnet (Presto Dual Gigabit NIC) and SmallTree. Therefore I think I'm very close to get it to work. Remark 1: Precision 670 mobo has following PCI ports: 1x PCIe 16X (graphics), 1x PCIe 8x (works as 4x) 1x PCI (32 bit) 3x PCI-X (64 bit) Short PCI slot is reserved for my Audigy soundcard (btw working great with kx driver) and PCIe is reserved for the Revodrive 3 which I'm going to buy in near future. So, available slots for NIC are PCI-X slots. Remark 2: I also buy refurbished Realtek 8169 PCI-X card, which works OOB in Snow, but - and this is somewhat funny - I could not find working Windows 7 driver and my 670 has to be dual OS'ed. I also noticed poor network performance using this card. OK, let's back to Intel NIC. Card is properly recognised by OSX: Now: I've modified AppleIntel8254XEthernet (in IONetworkingFamily) setting valid device ID: 0x10108086 (default was 0x10008086). Plugin ethernet cable causes kernel panic, when configuration in Network system preferences either is set to DHCP or manually: And, of course I found the SmallTree drivers which someone in this forum reported working, but I could not manage it to work, trying 3.2.22 and newest 3.4.24 version. SmallTree kext is installed but it is not loaded on startup. So, dear community, I appreciate any help or hints to work this s..t out ;]
  15. Hello everyone, A few days ago I managed to install iAtkos s3 v2 on my Acer Aspire One 722. The Snow Leopard install is working wonderfully, but I'm running into problems regarding the installation of kexts for the computer's ethernet. I've tracked down a kext for my Atheros ethernet card (the L1 iAts kext found here. http://code.google.com/p/iats/), but I'm having difficulty installing it. I've tried installing this kext both with KextHelper b7 and by manually dropping it into the System/Library/Extensions folder (and repairing the installation afterwards), but with no success. Another forum regarding a SL install on an Aspire One 722 confirmed that Ethernet works with this specific kext, so I know that its the right one for my computer. Could anyone please provide advice on what I'm doing wrong and perhaps provide instruction on how to install this specific kext? I'm really pretty clueless at this point. Thanks.
  16. Hey Now, I'm attempting to try and Hackintosh a Compaq Persario 2500 (2568CL DK560A), 2.66Ghz Intel Pentium-4D, 1GB Ram, 160GB HD. My latest attempt is using iPC Universal PPF5 Final with Leopard 10.5.6, I boot it up with -v and it hangs on: IOPCCardBridge : : Start Failed Apple PS2Touchpad: Synpatics Touchpad v.5.8 Any ideas? TIA, ~ Hayduke
  17. I just recently installed 10.5.8 onto a Dell Dimension 3000. While I have a working screen, it's stuck at 1024x768 with NO QE/CI. Since the Dimension 3000 only has PCI slots (no AGP), it looks like my only solution is to install a PCI graphics card. I tried using my google-fu, but I can't find anything definitive to get an answer as whether Leopard even supports PCI graphics cards let alone which ones. What (if any) would be a good PCI graphics card for running under 10.5.8 with QE/CI? Hoping to have DVI and output of 1920x1080. Would be nice if it could push some polygons for gaming too, but not a dealbreaker.
  18. Hey guys Here is my little guide to install OSX 10.6.8 on the EeePC 1000H. I'll quote some of the CicciMTS and scenemusic topics, thank you guys. What is needed ? A Asus EeePC 1000H A 8GB or more USB Pen drive An empty hard disk drive An other mac or hackintosh A USB mouse My package of tools, including the latest Apple OS X 10.6.8 Combo update Restore and Boot from USB On your mac/hack, go to Disk Utility, find your USB Pen drive, erase it with GUID Partion Table and Mac Extended Format (journaled). Then, restore your iAtkos image on your USB pen drive. Next, you need to make your USB drive Bootable. Find Chameleon in the tools Folder, open it and install it on your new Snow Leopard USB pen drive. Installation Boot into BIOS, if available, set the SATA mode to AHCI. If you can't it should work too so don't worry Select your USB Pen Drive and boot on it. Chameleon will appear, select your iAtkos install drive, and type -v to boot in verbose mode. After a moment, the OSX installer should appear. Trackpad will not work so plug in a usb mouse. Select your language and click next. on the top of the screen, find disk utilty, and erase your HDD with GUID Partion Table and Mac Extended Format (journaled) options, and close Disk Utility. Click Next until the installer ask you on which drive you want to install OSX. Do not install it yet, click on Customize. Select the following options : -BOOT ASEREBLN -BOOT OPTIONS 32BITS GRAPHICS ENABLERS ETHERNET BUILTIN USB (all) -PATCHES CREAR EXTRA FAKESMC DISABLER RTC KERNEL ATOM EVOREBOOT SLEEPENABLER UUID -DRIVERS SATA-IDE SATA/AHCI or INTEL SATA/IDE if you didn't enable AHCI in your bios -SOUND VOODOHDA -PS2 VOODOOPS2 or APPLEPS2 -POWERMANAGER VOODOPOWER -LAPTOP HARD BATTERY CARD READER THERMAL ACPI -VGA INTEL EFI STRING GMA950 (all) -WIFI Ralink RT2860 -WIRED ATLANSIC L1E Click OK and install OSX on your HDD. First Boot and update to 10.6.8 Remove your USB stick from your computer, Chameleon should appear, boot your new OSX installation with -v boot flag. Once you've created your account you should be on your desketop. Run the Combo Update installer but do not reboot!! Force Quit out of the installer (hold down the Option key and click and hold over the Installer icon in the Dock. Select Force Quit) and Run the Legacy Kernel installer and then reboot the machine. now you should see that your graphics driver doesn't work anymore. Run Kext Utility and let it repair the permissions and update the cache. when it says "all done" drag and drop all the graphics kext into kext utility, and when it says "all done", reboot your computer. Cross your fingers and reboot your computer. You should now have a fully working EeePC 1000H, with graphics, sound, wifi, USB, bluetooth and Ethernet Working with the lastest Snow Leopard update. You can have the latest security updates on your system with Software Update, it will not damage your installation. Sorry for my bad english, I'm french. Fell free to ask questions if you need, thank you guys
  19. Hallo, liebe Hackintosh Freunde, Ich habe letzte Nacht erstmals erfolgreich ein OS X auf meinem Läptop installiert. Bei der Distri handelt es sich um ein iDeneb 1.5.1. Zusätzliche Kexts: - ICHx Fix - FireWire remove Kernel: VooDoo für Intel SSE2 Grafiktreiber: Intel 915GM (wie für Windows) Was mich irritiert ist, das der Systemprofiler einen BSD und einen Mach Kernel, aber nicht den Voodoo anzeigt. Eigendliches Thema: Grafik: Generell funktioniert der Treiber, die Auflösung ist 1a, und wenn nicht gerade der Flurry Bildschirmschoner verlangt wird, werden Animationen auch fast immer ruckelfrei ausgeführt. (minimieren etc.) ABER: Ich muss einen externen Bildschirm angesteckt haben und im sicheren Modus starten, sonst wird alles nichts: -> Ohne angeschlossenen Bildschirm, mit [-x]: Blaues Bild -> Ohne BS ohne [-x]: Blaues Bild -> Mit BS ohne [-x]: Pixelsuppe, in langen Abständen manchmal kurzes aufleuchten in Blau Interessant: Wenn ich den Bildschirm bei laufendem System abklemme, läuft alles wie es soll, einfach weiter. Netzwerk: Bei meinem ersten Erfolg diese Nacht, hatte ich den Broadcom 43xx Wireless Treiber gleich mit installiert. Ging einfach perfekt. Heute morgen, hatte ich davon allerdings abgelassen, habs schlicht vergessen. Habe den Kext über den Kext Helper - per USB - Stick (funktioniert auch, yea!) nachgerüstet, allerdings wird dieser scheinbar selbst nach Neustart nicht geladen... Akku: Ich hätte gerne ein Akku Symbol, wie kann man dem Abhilfe verschaffen? Für andere, die überlegen, ihrem Inspiron sowas anzutun: USB läuft, Sleep - Mode klappt, Performance 1a, Sound kann ich nicht testen, Soundkarte ist kaputt, WLAN funktioniert wenn geladen 1a, Coverflow etc. keinerlei Probleme. fühle mich nicht weiter eingeschränkt. Genauere Informationen zum Notebook: Dell Inspiron 1300 1,5GHz Celeron M Prozessor 2GB RAM sonstiges: Ich hatte den Kleinen gestern über die Update-Verwaltung auf v10.5.8 upgraden lassen, danach hatte ich Kernelpanic - mein Prozessor würde nicht untersützt. Daher habe ich heute auch neu aufgesetzt. Kann ich nur über iDeneb Distros upgraden, oder wie oder was? Ich habe ein iDeneb 10.5.8 Delta Update gefunden, wie gehe ich damit um? Ist das sinnvoll? liebe Grüße, Viva La Vida
  20. Hi, I'm new to the laptop osx86 scene, but not to hackintoshes in general. I had an old laptop with W7 on it and got bored so I decided to install Mac on it as well (I already have a 10.7 hackintosh). So I tried installing iAtkos S3V2 but it never worked well (when simply booting, the music from the intro was playing but the screen wasn't working, whilst in safe mode it worked but without usb, sound, internet). So I then installed iAtkos V7. It works amezingly well (except for the wifi - the eternal Atheros 5006/5007 issue - I use PdaNet and my iPhone to connect to the internet). But now I decided that I should install 10.6.3 at least, for using Apple Logic Pro 9 and other stuff I use for music production etc. I tried installing 10.6.3 via Retail DVD & [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. But it never booted my disc. I suppose it doesn't work because I didn't set my BIOS up correctly. But in my BIOS there are no settings for example for AHCI or other stuff mentioned by TonyMac, as well as many others. My BIOS is plain and simple a Phoenix one, with too less settings being available. I cannot get 10.6.3 to boot, so I'm pretty much helpless, except for the case in which a kind and smart developer in here bothers to help me
  21. I built a Hackintosh a while back, using a version of iDeneb for OSX 10.5. It's been a few years now and I want to upgrade the OS, but I'm a little bit rusty in the OSx86 department. I've tried to use Kakewalk 4.0 to upgrade to Lion, but was unsuccessful. I then tried to use Kakewalk 3.0 to upgrade to Snow Leopard, hoping to then upgrade to Lion, but was also unsuccessful. It's been a while since I've messed around with my OSx86 machine and I'm fairly out of the loop at the moment. I'd appreciate any advice on the best way to go about the upgrade process.

  22. This tutorial should work with all the variations listed on Hewlett-Packard's Website. 1. First of all, you need to get the iAtkos v7, which you can get from torrent websites. Any snow leopard distros (Hazard, iAtkos S) will refuse to boot, so you are stuck with leopard (However, I did not try any other leopard distros than iAtkos). 2. When you have burned the ISO to the disk, boot from the cd drive (press F9), and in the darwin prompt (press F8), input the following flags:busratio=20 -v. After 5-10 minutes (if all goes well) you are looking at the installation screen. Before you continue, format your hard drive with disk utility, located at the utilities menu. Choose your HDD and click on the "Partition" tab. From the dropdown menu that says "current", choose the amount of partitions you want on the disk, name the partition(s) whatever you please, and press apply. 3. Choose the partition you want the os to be installed, and press continue, and from the next screen, choose customize. Make sure the following options are ticked: Bootloader>Xiezhy booter X86 Patches>/Extra, DSDT, Decrypters>AppleDecrypt, Disabler, Kernel>Voodoo 9.7.0 Drivers>System>Sata/Ide>ATI Sata/Ide PS/2 Mouse/keyboard>Apple PS/2 Driver, Laptop battery, Network>Wired>Realtek (tick the main tab) After you have ticked all the above options, choose Done, and then install. 4. After a while you should see a screen with a large green tick. Click restart. Remove the dvd from the drive once you see the "press esc for startup options" screen. 5. Press enter when you see the gray screen with the choise to boot from cd or HDD, choose the partion with os x on it. 6. You should see the gray apple logo for a minute, after that you should see the welcome screen. Go trough it. You should be on your os x desktop. What works after installation -Ethernet (requires a restart to work, should the computer "sleep" or cable get unplugged during use.) -Battery indicator (time and percentage) What does not work: -Wireless (use os x supported usb dongle) -Audio (Use os x supported usb dongle) -QE/CI (Unsupported video card) -VGA and HDMI ports (no video) -Sleep (screen stays on, wired network stops working after "waking up" -Shutting down and rebooting work sometimes, sometimes get stuck and require a forced shutdown. Optional: To toggle full native resolution, press f8 on the boot loader, and boot with the following flag: "Graphics Mode"="1366x768x32". If all goes well, you should see mac os x desktop with full resolution. You can (and should) add the graphics mode flag to the com.apple.boot.plist file if it works. NOTE: Should you enter the boot flags in the com.apple.boot.plist file, you need to press f8 twice and then enter on the bootloader, because otherwise it will not read the com.apple.boot.plist for whatever reason. You should also turn sleeping and shutting the hard drives off from the energy options. That's it! You should now get some ice tea and mud cake. You deserve it. Hope this helps someone! :wink2:
  23. Hi, All. I tried to post this question on another website (which I will leave unnamed), who apparently do not support OS X Leopard anymore. Thank goodness InsanelyMac does! Anyway. I'm trying to build my first hackintosh, and as stated, on boot of the OS X Leopard installer, I hit the following error: Bug: launchctl.c:2325 (23930):30: (dbfd = open(g_job_overrides_db_path, 0_RDONLY | O_EXLOCK | O_CREAT, S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR)) != -1​ (see attached photo. I apologize for low quality image. Best I could get :/) Booting with -s -v doesn't help. I get to the single user BASH shell, type exit as instructed to boot the system, and hit another hang. I assume it is the same error in the background. Booting without -v simply shows the apple logo and the spinning loading circle indefinitely. I am booting on an IBM X41 tablet computer (Screen is dead, however. I have to use VGA.) I am using Chameleon 2.1 r2069, and my boot disk is a USB which was 'restored' on a MacOS Sierra computer to contain the OS X Leopard install DVD, as well as Chameleon. Originally, I attempted with A legacy version of an unnamed bootloader, however hit the following: boot0: GPT boot0: testing boot0: testing boot0: testing boot0: error​ Which lead me to change bootloaders to Chameleon. I had to delete all graphics kexts to get this far, and I have to use a USB keyboard, because the built in one doesn't work past chameleon (I.e. for single user mode). As far as I'm aware, the BIOS is set up correctly, and the HDD is completely empty. The USB I'm booting with is on an MBR partition scheme, as GUID wouldn't work. I also tried the Voodoo patched Kernel. No joy. Finally, I have also attempted the install with OS X Tiger (same method for boot disk). That OS only manages to get as far as Darwin, before crashing. Specs aren't pretty, but should be able to run Tiger and / or Leopard just fine: Intel Pentium M LV 758 @ 1.2GHz 512MB DDR2 Ram 1.8" 60GB HDD @ 4200RPM Intel PRO 2200BG WiFi​ Unlike the reply on the other unnamed website suggests, I know that WiFi and Graphics are both compatible if you poke around enough, because of the following YouTube video, however my VGA prediciment could break the graphics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDlgwnedQ6Y Hopefully someone can help with my ancient OS install :/ Hopes aren't high, but anyway. Thanks in advance.
  24. Salve a tutti ragazzi. Nel mio notebook in firma ho problemi con tutti i Chamaleon dopo la V1. Quest'ultima è l'unica versione che funziona. Il problema è il seguente: Quando eseguo il boot da CD/DVD con delle distro tipo iATKOS S3 v2 o L2, che appunto hanno Chamaleon V2, appena esce l'immagine del CD con la freccia con sotto scritto "Press any key... or press F8.." ecc, sia al termine del conto alla rovescia (la barra che finisce), sia alla pressione del tasto F8 e sia con qualunque tasto, l'intero notebook si blocca e non posso premere alcun tasto. Smette anche di girare il disco. Vi chiedo gentilmente di darmi una mano. Non riesco proprio a capire.
