1 more thing ... i had to remove da 7600GS graphic card cuz da monitor kept on switchin on and off every 1 second.. so OSX ran on the Onboard 915 GMA.

this was 2 days back


as of now.. installed Windows XP SP2 :P


my rig is

Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHZ HT

Intel 915GAV Motherboard

1.5GB of RAM

Nvidia 7600GS PCIE 256MB Graphics card

Seagate 120GB SATA HDD
