    Hi

    I'm still investigating installing OSx on 6910p. But I'm stuck on ACPI problem. When installations finished, on first boot it gives me ACPI driver error. Any news about fixing this error, somebody knows it ?

    Default Compaq 6910p - iDeneb 10.5.6

    I have been able to install iDeneb 10.5.6 on my Compaq 6910p. Everything works except the wireless NIC. Also, the sound will turn on, but it turns itself off after a few seconds. To access the internet, I have to connect a network wire.

    I installed iDeneb 10.5.4 first using the vanilla kernel. I then upgraded it to iDeneb 10.5.6 using their upgrade utility.

    I installed the OSX on a Maxtor 250 gb USB hard drive. This allows me to 'play' with OSX without messing up my existing Windows installation on a the internal drive.

    Can you give any more details? Did you have to make any changes to BIOS settings? What about the ACPI driver error that some of us see?

    Also, is there any special trick to do the install to a USB drive? I also would rather not touch the internal drive and would rather just install OS X to an external USB drive. Thanks in advance. I'd love to get this working, I could live without wifi and sound.

    To ensure that I did not change the internal HD, I removed it during the install. I plugged the USB drive in and booted from the install DVD. I recognized the USB drive, allowed me to partition it, format it and install iDeneb OSX 10.5.4. I later (a month or two later) used iDeneb's upgrade to upgrade to 10.5.6.

    After the install was complete, I shut off the computer and re-install the original HD. When the PC boots, I hit F9 during the post and select the USB drive.

    I did not make any changes to the BIOS (this is my work machine and they would be VERY displeased if they knew that I was using it for a non-business use). I do know that the BIOS is dated 4/14/2008 version F.14.

    I have not seen the APCI error.

    Good Luck
