Hello,

 

 

I tried and install succesfully iDened 1.3, thanks to your explanation.

 

I also have xp sp3 install on my laptop (msi ex600).

 

I don't have any sound. I choose Realtek alc 888 and internal speakers.

 

What can I do ?

 

You also write about wireless drivers. When do you plan to release it ? Or where can I download them.

 

Thanks

Hello

 

 

 

I have MSI EX600 (MS-1636X), and iDeneb 1.3 10.5.5, 

 

i've been trying to install macos on this laptop but I still can not get past the error "still waiting for root device"

 

 

 

I know it's the most common error, and I know some ways to fix it, I installed on MacOs my Desktop Pc before, and I was able to fix this error then, but on this laptop I can not fix it, there are not much options in BIOS aswell, 

 

(I partitioned the HD as FAT32, HFS+, makes no difference)

 

any suggestions?

try first to see if the ID of harddisk is on the list of release,if it is this shoud work:

 

 

the harddisk is detected with iDeneb 10.5.5 booting press F8

at prompt just type -s then use what it says the 2 lines :

/sbin/fsck -fy

/sbin/mount -uw /

 

then type

exit

and graphical starts use disk utilities and i see my hard drive with all partition.

that is exactly what I do, 

 

 

 

I boot with dvd, press f8, type -s, and hit enter, 

 

but then it doesn't let me enter any commands, just continues with the installer.

hello,

 

im running ideneb 10.5.5 on my msi ex600x.

everything works apart from wifi (gonna use wifi from friends discarded macbook- the airport extreme)

 

Tho, is there any way/fix for leo to use both cores? since in system profiler ther is "Total number of cores: 1".

 

Does that mean the system is runing like core 2 solo (single core cpu)?

I have to share what i founded out. I have installed iDeneb 1.3 on my laptop MSI ex600, everything works great i think. After many distributions which actually didnt work, this one works! I was a litle bit disappointed, when i revealed, my wifi isnt working. So i began to search on the internet and i founded this:

 

http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/

 

now my wifi works, but only with free unsecured networks. Still its more than nothing and thats enough for me!

 

BTW: installation performed without any errors, and at the reboot there was no kernel panic.

"Total number of cores: 1" can be fixed installing snow leopard

-v -f -F -x"

I've managed to install MAC, and i must say it's a whole new world -_-, but i have some problem's.

You said that network work's by default. When a create a PPoe connection, no matter what i type in the pass field, the computer says it connect's toi the internet, but safari can't open any page. Even if i type the corect user name and pass it still doesen't connect. Another question is how can i get dual boot, how can i install cameleon??

 

And another question is how can i use both core's?

 

Thank you for all your help!

What i meant to say"Even if i type the corect user name and pass it still doesen't connect." is that in network connections it say's that i am connected but when i try to open a page it doesen't work.

 

Thank you
