    Default Dell GX280 install and updates of Kalyway OSX

    Dell GX280 install and updates of Kalyway OSX

    I am doing this as I am old hat when it comes to pc but new to mac so I spent some time getting it correct and working so hear it is all in one place.

    Step 1 Download Kalyway 10.5.2 OSX DVD For INTAL/AMD PC
    Google or torrant site.

    Step 2 Burn Image to disk using nero etc “do it as slow as poss”

    Step 3 Boot into PC BIOS disable NIC get another and install it I used a 3COM one works a treat the one on board don’t work with OSX “there may be a patch”

    Step 4 Put disk in PC and press F12 and boot from it “Dell Boot Loader chose CD/DVD Rom”
    It takes some time but boots.

    Step 5 set up Hard Drive using the Disk tools its simple just set up partition and close window when finished in fact its so simple with the mac software you often think there needs to be more to do well hay I came from a pc background and that’s the way it is.

    Install OSX pick drive you just set up and just go for it no need to change anything it just works out of the box.

    Step 6 When done restart LOL it works I will follow this guid with updating to 10.5.3 and so on as I get round to it.

    By the way i am now upto 10.5.4

    I also had to run "update -v" every time after I updated from 10.5.2 to 10.5.3. Then I found out that update was not a command, it was the name of the kernel.

    So there were 2 solutions:

    1:
    modify the file /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist using the commands:

    sudo -s
    nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

    You will get a file that looks like this:

    ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs$
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>Kernel</key>
    <string>mach_kernel</string>
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>Timeout</key>
    <string>5</string>
    </dict>
    </plist>

    Replace the line <string>mach_kernel</string> with <string>update</string> and save the document.

    2:
    Make a backup of the used kernel and then rename the update kernel as the old one using the commands:

    sudo cp /mach_kernel /mach_kernel.bak
    sudo cp /update /mach_kernel

    You can select the old kernel any time entering mach_kernel.bak at boot.
