    Default Yes though you might have some issues with kext editing lan and audio

    Since it is a guess you have Windows still on - and I am guessing it is working - you can do kext editing from inside Windows by installing some helper tools to look into the HPS drive. If you set it up to be a dual boot machine. Use Windows EditPadLite free for Download and Download Ext2Fsd 0.46 - An open source Ext2 File System Driver for Windows - Softpedia
    and Catacombae - HFSExplorer (HFS Explorer) to see and get at the Mac files in Windows. OR you can BUY Macdrive.

    If you are having dual boot problems try EasyBCD. Its free. It is what you need to be windows 7 compatible to dual boot - I use it Windows 7 - XP and Mac OSx all on the same machine

    The kexts are vendor and device ID specific - so if the kext does not have the right vendor and model ID referenced in the kext file - it will fail - or pass up the device anyway.

    You have to figure this out yourself - it is YOUR machine. They are all different as to what is in the unit from the manufacturer, and even if using common device components - the vendor and device ID may be different that what the kext might have in it.

    You can see the vendor and device ID in Windows, and the kext will have a name and you can find the vendor and device ID in the text of the kext info.plist. You can edit this from the
    Windows side with the editor above - and use no other - they will not work.

    You need to do some research on how the Mac OS works. Match your kext families with the missing parts of the OS not loading - change the vendor and device ID's and one at a time - you'll get them working and the boot errors will go away. It is basically UNIX/Linux anyway.

    If you have/had IPC 10.5.6 ppf4 or ppf5 you would likely have most of the kexts - but they might not have the right vendor ID and device ID for the unit you are trying to install on.

    Once installed, you need to boot in safe mode from the Darwin prompt with the -x option. Use -v also so you can see what it is loading and if it does stop in safe mode and where. Then you can try -v -f on another boot to see if it will make it all the way

    The MacOS is at it's core - UNIX - you cannot just lump a question in something and throw it here that is non-descriptive as to tell anyone not at your PC what is TRULY going on, even though I am a UNIX engineer.

    No one can help you if they cannot tell what is really going on - and if you are not ready to learn some UNIX - give up now.

    If you install the right kexts (Kernel EXTensionS) with the right vendor id's applicable the system will load them as it finds the hardware with the right vendor and device id during the boot process.

    Read the clues of the boot process yourself and do some research as to what they mean and then if you have a specific question you cannot find on the Internet or in the forums - that someone can identify - post that.
