    Default How do you determine which kext's to use??

    Or more appropriately, how do you determine what your hardware codes are to determine which kexts I need to use to install.

    I'm attempting to install on an Inspiron 530. I'm currently using iPC (although I've downloaded IAKTOS).

    I figure most of the installs are similar - but needing to know which kexts to install - and I do that based on knowing what hardware I have - but how do I determine that.

    Its a clean hard drive (i've already formatted it in the install process - then I got stuck). Can I throw a linux live cd in and determine from that? And what do I look for to compare!

    Thanks In Advance!

    Thank you for the response -

    I understand that I have to know my hardware. In a way, that is my question. Having a machine that has been formatted (so no OS is on it), and not having built it (its a dell inspiron 530), how can I go about learning what hardware I have and match that up with a kext?

    Again - thank you in advance for any responses!
