  1. I finally got back into this and did a fresh install tonight. Installed latest bootloader and 1.6 EDP. All updates work great. For some reason the DVD is not fully working. If I insert a blank disc, it ejects. If I insert a movie, it plays the audio but no video. This is what I have in System Profiler: HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4241N: Firmware Revision: A100 Interconnect: ATAPI Burn Support: Yes (Generic Drive Support) Profile Path: None Cache: 2048 KB Reads DVD: Yes CD-Write: -R, -RW Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw Media: Type: DVD-ROM Blank: No Erasable: No Overwritable: No Appendable: No Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
  2. No. I'm going to have to retry tonight now that I have latest Chameleon and EDP installed. Thanks for your help! I'll let you know how it goes later
  3. I did all the way up until the end step - Setup the bootloader to allow OSX to boot properly. It would only boot to Windows. If I inserted my USB Stick, I got the error booting to OS X. Should I start over?
  4. OK saved the OS X Install!!! Was able to install 665 and EDP; rebuilt and everything boots. Now, probably a stupid questions but how to i boot into Windows? I have reinstalled Chameleon and when I reboot I only get the option to boot to my OS X volume. If i hit any key, it goes straight to the Mac; no options
  5. Sorry, I had tried the pmVersion=21 -v with the same results but your suggestion of arch=i386 pmVersion=21 -v WORKED!!!! Downloading 665 and EDP now! I'll try after my conference call and update you all here!!!
  6. Alright, here is what I get: 1. I insert my Install Stick which is an image about 2 months old from the OSX Latitude site that I downloaded (This was also used originally to install OS X) 2. I hit F12 and boot to USB stick. 3. The green Chameleon comes up with text at the top left - Darwin/x86 boot v5.0.132 - Chameleon v2.0-RC3 r658 Build date 2009-09-06 comes up 4. My options are: Mac OS X Install USB Stick or GatorMac (the name of my install) 5. If I cursor over GatorMac and enter -s -v [Enter], it goes for about 5 sec and then stops after: Kernel version: Darwin Kernel Version 10.6.0 blah blah blah; System uptime in nanoseconds: 511969814 and then does nothing! 6. If I leave the cursor over Mac OS X Install USB Stick and enter -s -v [Enter] it goes a little longer but stops at the same point as number 5 above EXCEPT it now says Darwin Kernel Version 10.0.0 blah blah System uptime=21115620666 Either way the system stops at this point
  7. Off to the office to try. CRC, I will add that to my signature today also! Thanks all
  8. Works for a while and then it's hanging at /drv/ HypIoctls.c:912 Ioctl VT-d status: 0 Won't go any further!
  9. I thought it had to do with the EDP so I was trying to put the newest version on the MAC OS X USB INSTALL STICK through Terminal but I couldn't figure that out last night. What exactly do you mean when you say to boot with pmVersion=21?
  10. OK so I'm a dumbass and was typing unmount instead of umount! New to this Mac thing so whatever. Anyway, got Windows 7 installed on a new partition and now trying to boot to my OSX partition. I installed the OSX boot pen and it comes up but when I select my OSX drive, I get a kernal panic: Version mis-match between Kernel and CPU PM Mac OS Version: Not yet Set Kernal version: Darwin Kernel Version 10.6.0 System model name: Macbookpro5,1 I have update to 10.6.6 and installed EDP latest version 5 I think. Any suggestions? thanks
  11. Thought I would try this again. After repartitioning my hard drive, I reboot and enter a Terminal Window. When I try to unmount I get a command not found error (or something similar). I did reboot with my OS X Pen Drive. I have also tried typing sudo first and I get the same error. Any idea? The image on my pen drive is the OS X image and was what I used to install it with.
  12. Cool. I'll order today!
  13. 1. Using built in card on the D620 2. At home I have an AirPort Extreme 3. 54 Mbit/s
  14. Thought I would ask this group this question. I have a D620 with OsX installed. I installed iStats which gives me up to date information in my menu bar. The peak download speed I get is usually 120-130KB/s. My internet connection is much faster than that. Why is mine so slow? Is that the max on a wireless signal? Thanks
  15. This is the device http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=320 I have searched and nothing so far. I'm guessing since the update just came out, not a lot of people have had the problem yet. In addition, when I first set it up, there didn't seem to be too many Mac users. I'll keep trying though and post anything I find.
  16. Here is one for the experts on the board! Since updating my D620 to 10.6.6, I cannot get my WD Live TV Plus to connect. The WDTV sees my Mac but it will not connect. I have tried to turn the firewall off, changed sharing, everything. Nothing! And yes it did work before the update so i'm not sure what else it could be. It also connects to my Windows Home Server so the network is working. Any suggestions at what 10.6.6 could have done?
  17. Worked like a charm! and, my track ball thingy works!!!! Thanks again for all the work you all do. Now, if only I could get the Dual Boot working! another day
  18. EDP 1.5 installed on my D620....Next step is 10.6.6!!! I'll post results soon.
  19. I put it in the root directory

    OSX 10.6.6

    Which file do you edit? The one in the Extras directory?

    What I found is that you cannot install OS X with more than 2GB RAM. I reinserted my old 1GB sticks, installed, then replaced with the 2GB sticks. Also, I kept getting a memory error on booting that said to reseat. I kept reinserting to no luck. What I did was disconnect the small cable next to the watch battery at the top under the keyboard. With the battery out, this resets the BIOS (I think). When I do this, the first time I reboot, it takes me to setup where I reset the clock and everything works fine.

    Had my system up and running great for a few weeks when I decided to upgrade to 4GB RAM. Now it crashed and I can't restore from a time machine restore although it goes through the whole restore. I also can't reinstall this sites image file. It crashes about 5 minutes into the install Any ideas?
