    POWerSUrgeSW3, I definitely confirm that you are helpful for others (at least, me ! :p) because I have a Dell D630 and of course I'm facing the same problems ! So, you helped me to confirm it is not so easy with that laptop and avoided me to loose too much time in investigating. So, again ... THANKS and please fill free to keep updating this thread, it will be really appreciated !

    I'm sorry to hear that friend. I think that the Mac project is worth it. It does take time to figure out, but once you do it's great. I have learned a lot over the last two months playing with this. And now I'm one format away from a stable Leo4Allv3 10.5.2 upgraded to 10.5.4 via Delta updates and some driver tweaking. It's actually faster to format and reload a Mac than a PC.

    From all the reading I've been doing, I think I have some issues due to having the newest hardware from Dell, or maybe not as new as I think. I seem to have a one off where MOST of the stuff works. Then again you run into problems trying to mod an operating system that was not designed for the hardware it was made for.

    I think if Mac ever decides to step out of it's house and try to really integrate itself with drives from Linux to be more compatible with systems... so that retail copies could be sold to anyone who wanted to build a system... they would really have an interesting handle on the market.

    Either way Gates, or now just Microsoft in general, still has their hands in things. Even if sales from Microsoft dropped, they still have Office and plenty of other products that EVERYONE uses regardless of PC or Mac.

    For me I'm very happy with my MacXPS 1330. Bluetooth really works wonders. I've given back my D630 at work, and use an HDMI cable for video and Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Makes like much easier and much faster.

    Oh and for some reason I am special because out of the box and even with the Delta updates my system shuts down and restarts without a problem. Now and then it locks up shutting down, and booting has never been a problem. Interesting how that works. And all I've done besides the OS updates and the Software Updates via the Mac icon, was the Dell Post installer for hardware and a separate install of the NVkush drivers from the Post 10.5.5 update from.... (can't remember his name and battery almost dead)...

    So friends I tell you, it is worth the fight for the Mac, once you get it you will love it. I have made my friends at work and other Mac owners jealous because I am the guy with the one off now... but I've always been the person in life to have something different than anyone else....

    ... except for my other fellow OSx86ers....

    Post 10.5.5 - stable

    Just to throw this out there, not that I keep wanting to overtake someone else's thread... but I did finally figure out how to get my system working with 10.5.5

    Again I had to start with the Leo4All v3 10.5.2 and work my way up through the Delta updates. The key was installing all my hardware before doing the updates. After I got the OS initally installed I ran the Dell Post Installer and installed my hardware. Then did the delta updates (which broke some hardware). Ran the Dell Post installer again before updating to 10.5.5, and it worked. I still don't have a working Ethernet or internal mic, but everything else works fine. Oh and the system doesn't shutdown/reboot correctly, but I found that to be only after I installed the drivers for my nVidia video card.

    In time I am going to post instructions on how I built my system. Right now I'm trying to dual boot Vista Ultimate 64bit and OSX, while having the ability to use the MediaDirect button on my XPS to boot into the MediaDirect interface.

    Never happy I guess, but what's a toy if you don't play with it.

    Default check the disc

    I know this is kind of late. But I took a look at all the post and I didn't see the most basic of things. I know its obvious, but what speed did you burn your disc at? I had a huge debacle last night trying to get the darn thing to boot and run the installer. I put the disc in several other PC's in my house some would boot others wouldn't but it was always revolving around waiting for a device or something not being read. So I compared my Checksum on the ISO and thankfully that matched because I sure wasn't to thrilled at the prospect of another 4 1/2 gig download. So I burned the disc again at its lowest possible burn speed which was 4x. To my amazement, not only did it boot but it took me all the way through the install and to the desktop for tweaks and patching.

    Its obvious, but being geeks I'm sure we can all admit to sometimes looking at the more complex things before stopping to check the simple things.

    Cheers!

    I burnt it at 16X on my external Memorex DVD burner. and I've also burnt other discs on my internal slot load on my XPS, those at 8X. I never had a problem with either. I'm not sure why you would be having read issues? What types of discs were you using, DVD+R, DVD-R, DVDRW discs?

    I personally have noticed that once I burn a set series of discs, after awhile that's all I can burn. I do a lot of "backup" copies of DVD movies, and use GP DVD-R discs. After awhile all I can burn is DVD-Rs, not +Rs, not even CDs. It's like the DVD player locks into one mode. Maybe that's something you're experiencing? Not sure about that but no, I didn't have to step down to make a burn, my Nero is set for maximum record speed so it sets itself.

    Default Latitude D630 & logic

    Hey,
    I have a perfectly working version of OS X 10.5.5 that I installed using iDeneb. I did the extension changes so everything work.s the only problem I have is with Logic Pro 8. I get the error "error while trying to synchronize audio and midi" with a message following about the sample rate. I am using an audio kontrol 1 but the problem also happens with the built in card. Please help with this problem. The message shows up after around 4 bars usually. I believe it might be a problem with the kernel but I am not sure how to change the kernel and which one i might change it to. Adobe/garage band work fine so i don't think its a problem with the interface. I have a d630 2.5gHz 4GB ram

    Hey buddy I think that might be better as a separate thread instead of trying to bridge into our current chat. Because we are getting off topic since this thread was all about just installing OSX on a Dell.

    I just figured this would be a thread that would attract lots of people who have the D630 with a hacked os. I thought it might be a common problem specific to the computer that people in this thread might recognize
