  1. You just have to take the plunge and have the fun doing it. Just follow the process, first "INSTALLATION/Install on AMD System" and fire away. I suggest to start with OS X 10.6.8, make your system a stable "Hackintosh" and upgrade thereafter. God luck and have fun (while you learn) doing it!
  2. Run "Disk Utility/Repair Permission". Use USB keyboard/mouse before running start turning on laptop.
  3. I had the same issue, I set my system BIOS to "Auto" on Temperature control. This Tjmax parameter are only for Core, Core 2's and the newer CPU, not on Pentiuem 4's and Pentium D's.
  4. You're not the only one, I have the same result on my D630.
  5. I hope you know what those glitches are. I challenge you to mention a couple of glitches or are those glitches are actually software bugs?
  6. Here's the link for v.02: http://potatosaladx.blogspot.ca/2007/06/i8kfangui-for-mac-os-x-v02-with-dual.html
  7. RocketFish HD Webcam, RF-HDWEB http://www.rocketfishproducts.com/products/computer-accessories/RF-HDWEB.html
  8. Use the guide for D630 Intel graphics card.
  9. There's one thing that is missing in the guide and that is to install AppleACPIPlatform. kext (from OS X Snow leopard 10.6.x). To be able to perform this you need your D430 system and use the OS X Mountain Lion install disk as a USB drive. 1. Boot your D430 system, once OS X is loaded, connect the USB drive where OS X Mountain Lion was installed. 2. Open KextWizard, and install AppleACPIPlatform. kext in S/L/E folder. BTW, you should install kext first on your desktop. Here's the link where to get it or see the attached kext. http://team.osxlatitude.com/?dir=fixes/coolbook-lion 3. Open application myHack/myFix/ 4. Select Full mode on the USB OS X Mountain Lion install disk. 5. Restart and boot on the USB OS X Mountain Lion install disk drive. Voila! Good luck and I'm pretty sure that should work. I encountered the same problem on D630 Nvidia. AppleACPIPlatform.kext from 10.6.7.zip
  10. All LogiTech webcams that are UVC compatible to function on OSX 10.4.9 & above are listed here: http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6471/~/uvc-webcam-support-for-mac-os-10.4.9-and-above and here: http://support.creative.com/kb/ShowArticle.aspx?sid=83939
  11. I suggest you format the destination HD first. It always work!
  12. Your partition boot manager is faulty (No selected partition to boot). You have to boot with Windows ? Repair Disk(if you have it in a CD or USB drive) and use DOS prompt command to recover/enable the particular partition you want to boot first ( Linus, OS X or Windows). I suggest this link, read it and used it to fix your issues. http://ss64.com/nt/diskpart.html Restart your PC, insert Windows Repair Disk in CD/DVD drive. On DOS prompt, type "diskpart" and then return. These are steps that you have to do. LIST Disk SELECT Disk=n LIST Partition SELECT Partition=n I suggest you select the Windows partition, reboot to Windows (after this, DON'T panic as you won't see your OS X partition on boot). Download EasyBCD application and take control of your triple-boot, here's the link, read it: http://neosmart.net/EasyBCD/ Create/Add OS boot for OS X and Linux. I hope this helps. This is a much better method to use for a multi-boot PC. I used this.
  13. Check your memory by booting an Ubuntu live CD or live USB drive and test the memory. That is the first I would do or if you are sure the memory are good then I suggest you go into BIOS and let it sit for a while (about > 15mins).
  14. I would consider stepping-down CPU speed for the moment - to be safe and cool down the system even if CPU process in ML is excessive.
  15. Okay, grasshopper, what do you mean a different boot loader? What did you exactly do? Did you change to another install process?
  16. On your USB install disk, put the fixed DSDT.aml in the Extra file also.
  17. Re-install a new partition(BTW: previously ML was installed/updated on a OS X Snow Leopard) and everything works except when updated to the latest EDP - blackscreen problem. Found the solution here: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/897-d830-nvidia-black-screen-after-update-solved/ After I unzip, rename the file, insert it to Extra folder, reboot, I had better days after this. yeehaa! My wish list for the D830 nvidia process is - when installing EDP, it would detect the OS, if OS is ML then install this file. Santa please do this, I promise to be nice! Thanks to this.
  18. I had the same problem on my D830 nvidia ssytem a couple of weeks ago. But in your luck I searched the forum and I find a solution but I forgot where it is now; however I can the DSDT file to fix it (attached). I can confirm that his fix works on mine. You'll have better days after this:-). All you have to do is to unzip, rename the file to DSDT.aml, put it on Extra folder and voila.! BTW, you have to boot on an OS X system somehow to be able to do that; insert your ML disk as a USB drive and put the file. And the rests is easy. Okay, I'm not permitted to upload this, which was done in the first place by the other user, weird! Plan B, I'll try to search for the forum then. Update, only Admins can attached the file, ? and more ????; but anyway here's the link: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/897-d830-nvidia-black-screen-after-update-solved/ i just hope that the team update the workflow for D830 nvidia. If the operating system is Mountain Lion, they should put this file in the D830 nvidia bootpacks - to help other users. Just a wish list.
  19. At Apple, they have "Geniuses", here we have "Angels" . Joking:-) Happy for you, though!
  20. I managed to install ML on D830 using the USB guide and Extra bootpacks. Successful installed ML (yeah!), I was happy for 5 minutes - testing Safari, Software update, AppStore, etc. but then when I installed EDP and installed the desired D830 configuration for my hardware; the item 2 (ApplePS2keyboard.kext) does not work. I have to use a USB keyboard. Configuration 2: Keyboard/Mouse/TrackPad (item 0) -worked, Enable sound item(3 - Voodoo stable) but didn't work. KP. So, I'm stuck with no audio. Help, I need somebody help!
  21. Use iFail S3 V2(if you have it) and/or find it somewhere over the web. Here's the link where your hardware might be supported: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=search&andor_type=&sid=cf1e70763631807705fef748f47381d1&search_app_filters[forums][sortKey]=date&search_app_filters[forums][sortKey]=date&search_term=iFail+S3+&search_app=forums&st=975
  22. Use KextWizard to import kext(s). You can "google" it, it's a free application.
  23. Sorry to disappoint you but, your hardware are not sufficient to install/run Mountain Lion. You probably can try Snow Leopard with legacy kernel.
