    Default I Need Help Installing Snow Leopard on Dell Inspiron 1545

    I am trying to install Mac OS X Snow Leopard on my Dell Inspiron 1545. I have been following this guide I found:

    Dell 1545 Snow Leopard Retail/boot321 Install - InsanelyMac Forum

    So far I done everything correctly and successfully installed Mac OS X, except I messed up on installing the kexts. Now I can't even boot up my computer because whenever I try to it says I need to restart by pressing the power button.

    Please help me fix this problem because this is my first time doing this and I have no idea what to do.

    Thanks

    Did you run the kext utility after every time you installed a kext file...? When you say you messed up on the kexts, you need to be specific, which kexts? Try doing 1 at a time so you know and try running disk utility.

    Ok so i found the problem to my computer not booting up but now I have another problem. Sometimes my keyboard and mouse stop working and I have to restart my computer, but this time when I restarted my computer I couldn't get passed the boot loader screen because my enter key is not working and I can't boot from a cd because my F12 key is not working either. Do you have a solution to this problem?

    Thanks.

    Since you did not describe, I'm just taking a guess, but it sounds like you may have to install a kext file to correct that problem (keyboard, mouse problem), but did you check your disk utility and cache after you ran multibeast... and rebooted ?

    You may have to use an external usb mouse and usb keyboard to work around those issues.

    Let us know if you resolve it

    Most of that seems right except I have 4 GB of RAM, 320 GB hardrive, and i think my processor speed is 2.00 GHz

    I used kextutility like is said in the guide. I also use a usb mouse, but neither that nor my trackpad works along with none of my keyboard keys. I can't get passed the boot loader because none of my keys work. Do you know if there is a way to fix this?

  10. Thanks dajerm119 thanked for this post.

    Well apparently there is some sort of conflict, try to see if you can reload OSX. I know its time consuming, but while its booting see if it gives you an error message. Did you try using a usb keyboard as well?
