    Default Sucessfully installed MAC Snow Leopard 10.6 on DELL STUDIO XPS 16

    BEWARE.....
    NOTE:-you system should contain one operating system like windows vista or 7...anyone of them can do.....


    hey ...all the guys....reading this post.....
    i have successfully installed the snow leopard on dell studio xps 1640....
    it is working great no problem at all at starting......booting....nothing...
    all goes fine.....

    here is the torrent file which you have to download.....
    the url is
    SnowOSX Universal 10 6(432)GM v3 5 iso Torrent - btjunkie

    or

    if you want to download directly then go to google and search for
    the url
    SnowOSX_Universal_10.6(432)GM_v3.5.iso

    ......
    the installing goes like this


    you have to boot from cd first no need of boot 132 camp....
    it will automatically boot from the cd....

    then

    it will start the installation.....
    installation goes as usual....you have to first go to disk utility and format a partition for mac os x which should be MAC OS X (journaled) one..
    then

    click next
    and go to customize.....option
    then select all the components...or fill all the check box....
    then wait for 20-30 minutes for the installation....
    after installation ..goes write it will ask you for the restart...restart it....

    then after restart eject the DVD from the drive.....
    then again restart....your laptop...


    after restarting the laptop it will ask you to press any key....but don't press it
    let the computer perform 5 second it self...

    after 5 second of waiting it will boot you mac os and then a screen will come that restart or shutdown your laptop or pc....

    NOTE TO WORRY.....you have to just remove the kexts files for ati...
    for that
    restart the laptop then press any key whithin that 5 seconds....

    then select the partition in which you have installed the windows 7 or vista....

    it will now boot windows 7 or vista....

    then after starting windows 7 or vista ....you need to download the software called
    MAC DRIVE 8.0....

    download from this link
    http://rapidshare.com/files/33830481..._v8.0.4.10.rar
    or
    for that go to google and search for it...but remember that you need to download only the 8.0 version.....

    then install it...

    this will let you open the mac drive in windows.....

    and it will let you delete the kexts files.
    ..
    double click on your mac drive...in my computer.
    then
    go to system/library/extension/

    then find out the kexts for the keyword "ATI"

    delete all the kexts files related to ati...

    now it's done....

    you have completed the installation of mac os.


    now as usual restart the laptop and boot for mac os for that you need not to click within that 5 seconds...
    it will boot autamatically the mac os....


    enjoy mac on dell studio xps 1640....


    now important one....

    working devices:-USB , FIREWIRE , SOUND , BATTERY , LAN(BROADCOM) ....

    not working devices:-WIFI and other remaining ones.

    now for this SOUND AND BATTERY you need to download the following kexts files from the internet....

    but you better post you email...i will mail you the kexts files needed for the
    installation....

    Default Cant bringup the MAC OS

    I have installed as per the instructions and removed the ATI kexts using the Installer Terminal. Now when I reboot, the boot loader does not bringup the MAC OS. It straight goes into Windows. Are there any steps required for the boot loader to show MAC OS. Much appreciate your help.

    Also can you please email the kext files for battery and any other missing files to gadirajum@gmail.com. thx in advance.

    Default Got the Mac OS installed

    I figured out that the MBR was not properly set for the MAC OS to boot. Used EasyBcd on windows to update the bootloader and added an entry. This solved the problem and now boot Mac.

    But my Lan, Battery, Sound are not working. Can you please email me the kexts for these - gadirajum@gmail.com

    See when you successful install the mac ....after that when it restart it will give you option for 5 or 2 seconds in which you press the key then select the partition in which you have windows 7.......and if you does not press the key automatically it will boot MAC..Thank you for reading the post...Thank you
