    Default Installing on a Sony VGC RB4BGY and Running both Windows Visa and Leopard

    A buddy of mine helped me install Leopard on my on Sony Pentium4 VGC RB4BGY with 2 megs of RAM and its running OK but when I tried to install Aperture 2.0, I'm told the video card is too old, so I have an xtra Nvidia GeForce 9500 GS sitting around and was hoping that we could get it working so I can use the machine for what I intended, Photography and video. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, good or bad news is OK. I'm a new-bee so if I posted in the wrong place, sorry guys, trying to get on the front side of the learning curve.

    Question # 2: Is there a Boot Loader like Visa Boot Pro that allows me to chose what OS I want to run as opposed to running Vista an Virtal Environment. I have the original 320GB IDE HD with XP and all of my stuff sitting inide the machine thats not even connected, b/c we cant seem to figure out what to do with it besides I'm currently running Vista in Parallels and its seems slower that Christmas. Thanks for any and all assistance, this a an AWESOME group of guys and gals!

    Thanks Robert

    I suggest using cameleon as your boot loader you can hold down a key and see both os's and choose which you prefer.

    Your geforce card should be compatible with leopard. If you don't already have them you can download Nvinject drivers here: http://www.nawcom.com/osx86/files/Gr...nject.kext.zip

    These should be good for your card, if its the 512mb one, if its not please let me know. Simply go to /system/library/extensions and search for nvda and geforce, make sure you move these kext files to a backup folder incase you need to restore them, then copy the new one in the zip over. Restart.

    Good luck!

    So if I plug my Windows drive in, which system do I put Chameleon on and I guess I would set the boot drive order based on the OS on the 1st boot drive right? Does Chameleon run on the Leopard drive or the Windows drive? If I run it that way, can I get rid of teh SLOOOOOOOW Parallels VM? And yes, I do have the 512 card, its a little hoot! Thanks for your help! Anymore suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks Robert
