  1. New problem... I usually boot into Windows on my Vostro 200 everyday. I did the same thing yesterday, but the mac started kernel panicking. Is there any fix? Thanks vgupta
  2. I only have two user accounts. Both do not show all of the apps in the Applications folder. I did not install any secondary Mac partition. I do not know where the apps are coming from. Once I figure that out, I want to restore them back to Applications folder.
  3. After a reinstallation of Mac ML 10.8.4, launchpad has all applications that I installed before & after the reinstallation, but Applications folder has only applications that I installed after reinstallation. Is there any fix? I have provided screenshots below. Screen Shots: Launchpad View (I only provided one page) Applications folder view. There is less than the Launchpad folder
  4. Hello everyone, I have a Dell Inspiron 15 (N5050) with i3 processor. It has IDT 92HD87B1 sound card which probably can be used with VoodooHDA. I would like to run Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9. I am also fine with Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.4 or 10.8.5. It has an Intel HD Graphics 3000 graphics card. I need the WIndows preinstalled on this machine. Will it work with MBR partition? Thanks vgupta
  5. Ok, I looked in Graphics/Displays, and this is what I see. Please let me know if you also need a screenshot of PCI Cards. Thanks vgupta
  6. Hello everyone, My dell vostro 200 started working! After research, it looked like a lot of people's PNY graphics cards were giving the same error. I then tried -v npci=0x3000 in the chameleon via myhack generic and it started working. Thanks vgupta
  7. Yes, I am using the latest Bios(1.0.16) (unmodded). I do not know the recommended settings, so can you send that to me. Also, when I saw the "Init Display First" in the BIOS, it says PCI Slot or PCIEx. I tried both, but both hang. I deleted AT1300Controller + EVOenabler kexts from the /Extra/Extensions/ and ran Myfix(full) from myhack, but it still hangs at [ PCI configuration begin ]. Should I run the terminal command and Chameleon Wizard you said to do from the on-board VGA, because even the installer is hanging in [ PCI configuration begin ]. Actually, I am not sure about the PCI id, but this is the link: http://www3.pny.com/GT-610-1024MB-PCIe-P3186C523.aspx. Is it possible to just re-install Mac on that machine? One more problem...(the installer also hangs at the same spot). Should I delete the same kexts in the installer and run Myfix? Thanks vgupta
  8. Thanks for the guide, Darvinko. I reinstalled my Chameleon and the Chameleon screen came without making Mac active. Is making it active necessary? It shows Mac and Windows now in the boot screen. I am using OS X 10.8.4, as I have made the myHack installer a few days ago. Now my problem is [PCI Configuration Begin ] freeze. Mac works using my on-board video card, but freezes at [ PCI Configuration Begin ] when I plug in my graphic card and use that. As in this post: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2032-dell-vostro-200/&do=findComment&comment=17731, Hervé has said that no patching was required. I have the same card except mine is from PSY, not Twintech and my card is 1GB ddr3 card, whereas his is 2GB DDR3 ram. Do I need any patching? Thanks vgupta
  9. Hello everyone at OS X Latitude, I have added a PCI graphics card to my Dell Vostro 200 Desktop. I got a Nvidea geforce gt 610 pci express card from PNY. My Windows 7 Professional boots fine, but my Mac mountain lion stopped working. It is stuck at [ PCI configuration begin ]. If I plug it into the original on-board VGA port, it works fine. What is the problem behind this? I am using a 1024MB DDR3 card. I know Hervé wrote in his Vostro 200 guide to use a 2GB card, but it was too expensive to I just got a 1GB card. Is there problem because of the Windows. I am using GUID partition layout. First, I installed Mac, then I installed Windows. Somehow, after installing Windows, the computer boots up to Windows by default. The only way to get to Mac is to plug in my myHack USB installer and boot using that. Again, USB booting worked using on-board video card. Is there a problem because I am booting via USB installer to my Mac partition, or because of some graphic card problem. I also remember that right after my Mac Mountain Lion installation(which was before I got my graphics card) that it said Installation Failed. I just ignored it, because it appeared that it was working fine eventhough it said Installation failed.Could that be the case? Thanks vgupta
  10. I will post my results once I get my graphic card. I was just wondering, what exactly do you mean,"if the build is ok". Thanks vgupta
  11. Hello, I installed myHack+Dell Vostro 200 Bootpack+EDP for Mountain Lion, but now Launchpad takes forever to open! The launchpad was pretty quick like an original Mac in Lion, but it takes 5-7 minutes to open Launchpad which is very annoying. I have not yet gotten a graphics card(because it will take a few days to order it), but launchpad takes forever. Will the Nvidea gt 610 graphic card Pci 2.0 fix the problem? If you need any screenshots, or photos of my desktop, please ask. I will be getting my card in a few days, so it might solve the problem. Thanks vgupta
