    Default Apple Software Update. HELp

    Hi. I am new to the Hackintosh world

    Yesterday, after like 15 tries I got the v7 version to work on my Dell Inspiron 530s


    But then I went on System Preferences and selected Software Update

    It updated and then the computer restarted. then it wont boot the OS anymore. It just stays on the loading screen forever. I tried 2 more times and same thing.

    Is there a way to update the software without getting this problem?


    Thanks

    What distro did you install? did you try to boot in force mode or safe mode? are you using any patched kernel?

    I just updated every software. except the OS it self.

    I have the 10.5.7 and when I use the ''Software Update'' on System Preferences to update the OS to 10.5.8. It wont boot anymore

    What do I do?

    One more thing: WHere can I download a new Video Driver

    Both my video card and my Monitor support 1440 x 900

    but in the display setting the only resolution I can chose is 1024 x 798

    oh ok. I am using iatkos v7. on the instalation I installed intel video drivers but it still shows that I can only use low resolutions.

    my video card is just one that came stock on my pc. It is a Dell inspiron 530s it is not a good video card. but i am sure it supports 1440 x 900.

    How can I install upgrades like the 10.5.8 or the Snow Leopard

    With iatkos v7 you should be able to upgrade to 10.5.8 without problems... are you using a patched kernel?

    once again you didnt post your video card.

    Btw did you try to update in force mode
