hey guys,

So i've been playing around with dual booting vista and osx86 on my laptop, and I can successfully dual boot but the alps touchpad driver get's screwed up after I boot to vista and then back to osx. I've tried using the darwin bootloader as well as Easybcd. The only way that I can get the touchpad working again is to boot into single user mode (-s) using the iAtkos dvd and fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0, flag 2, update, write; this allows the touchpad to work in osx, but then of course the vista partition won't boot.

Thanks in advance.

A small little package put together by Vanilla has worked well for touchpad on most other C700s also has reduced temps. You can hind it here

Good luck

I've ran into a problem like this. I can dual boot fine but after running vista, the touchpad / trackpad acts funky when I boot up OS X. If I unplug the computer and remove the battery and then boot OS X everything is fine. If I only boot into OS X everything works fine session to session but something in Vista is leaving something in a memory location or something that is wacking OS X when it tries to address the track pad.

 

This is on a C706nr that I upgraded the processor to a 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo. I'm running iPC 10.5.6 and have the alps touchpad driver and FFScroll loaded.

 

Any ideas / suggestions would be appreicated.
