You can download the update from the Apple site, burn it to a disc or copy it to a thumbdrive and install :)

 

MoC,

 

Sure :) I'll see what I can get in :)

i also realized that you could just drag stuff in ur applications folder and woosh. it would be installed. so my brother, he has a genuine mac, took all the programs i needed from him and put them in my applications folder and everything works beautifully lol. i love it.

 

thx about the dling from apple site.. theres alot of stuff there :censored2:

tapsi and Iman07,

 

I can put a simple little bit on how to install a kext on the FAQ, I'll do that now but writing all about how to edit a kext would take an entire book!

 

ragingstriker,

 

Did you read, I put a section in the FAQ on how to get an install guide?

H! all...

 

 

 

i've been driven into this new world they called "osx realms"

 

been using linux and windows since...i've watched them evolve...

 

for the servers linux is the way...for the workstations probably windows...

 

but it all changed now...eversince osx were able to run on intel based silicons :P

 

with its unix kernel ancestry...and an eye candy gui..my stay would be infinite...

 

hats off to all those who shared their wisdom...

 

 

 

::flash::

 

 

 

PS.

"madamo guid nga salamat" - thank you very much in our local tongue ;)

 

 

for those who own intel D945PSN mobo...i could be of help ;)

(osx tested: Myzar 10.4.6 / Jas 10.4.8 ~ 10.4.10 / Kalyway 10.5.1 / Kalyway 10.5.2 / iATKOS v1)

ok, i had vista and leopard working fine, then i tried to increase leopard partition and it all screwed up

 

so i formated my hard drive completely and wrote 0's to everthing

i have a vista installtion disk (real) and iatkos 1.0 ir3

 

what should i install first?

 

also is there any different between iatkos and leo4all? (which should i use?)

 

thanks if you reply :)

Install Vista first. Leo4All tends to be more compatible and problem free than iATKOS, and AFAIK Leo4All has more drivers and hardware support.

~pcwiz, could you add the Time difference issue with Mac OS vs Windows, incredible that some users still asking why they get diferent clock times when dual booting.

Hi everyone,

 

Newbie here, I have done some googling etc but haven't been able to find an anwser - so I will now ask here.

 

I want to load Leopard onto my PC which is currently running XP Pro using a 320GB and 500GB hard-drive.

 

I have also got another new 500GB hard-drive that I want to put Leopard on.

 

My question is - do I unplug the windows hard-drives and plug in only the new drive when I install Leopard, or do I leave the windows drives connected. My goal is to eventually be able to boot into either OS on startup.

 

Your help will be much appreciated,

 

Thank you,

SonicNZ. :poster_spam:
