    Default need help with Quad Core

    Hi,
    i just got iDeneb 10.5.5. installed on my Dell Inspiron 530,
    seems to work ok except only one core shows up in the activity monitor. i have an intel core2quad Q6600,
    i've done some reading but i'm confused , how can i get all 4 cores working? i've downloaded a "chameleon with DSDT bypassed" but have no idea how to install it.
    i also read about a bios mod but no mention of how to actuall DO it.

    i'd like to find a way that i can just turn on the machine and have all 4 cores running without them blowing up or melting

    any help greatly appreciated.

    for example, this thread here :
    http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.p...57&mode=linear

    talks about a solution but i've no idea how to actually do it,
    if anyone could just describe the method for getting this to work it would be cool.

    thanks

    cool,
    can you tell me how to enable the 4 cores through this "bios mod" i keep hearing about. its pretty frustrating reading about these things with no indication of how to do them.

    or even the "chameleon with DSDT bypass" method.

    thanks man.

    thanks,
    The DSDT patcher looks promising but how do i do it?
    there doesn't seem to be any explaination of how to make it work.
    sorry if i seem bullish but i cant understand why this is so difficult to actually do, considering its the only problem i'm having in an otherwise perfect installation and i've seen loads of guys with quadcore hackintoshs.
