    Default ideneb and Dell Studio

    Hi to all...
    After a long time I decided to install OSX on my dell studio 1537
    With these specs:
    Dell Studio 15 1537
    Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5800 (2.00GHz/800Mhz FSB/2MB cache)
    widescreen 15.4 WLED display (1280x800)
    Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive TSST TS-T636A
    2GB DualChannel DDR2 at 800MHz
    160GB SATA Hard Drive
    Ati Radeon HD 3450 256Mb
    High Definition Audio Intel 2.0 IDT 92HD73C1
    Dell Wireless 1397 802.11g Half Mini-Card
    Chipset Intel® Cantiga GM45
    Webcam da 2 MP Creative
    Alps touch Pad
    Lan Broadcom BCM5784M
    I've choosen the iDeneb not for a particular reason...

    So...
    I've installed iDebeb 1.5.6, and everything goes fine...during the installation I try to select the right kext for me...but I think that I've doing something wrong....

    I've not install the cpus=1 fix, and the first time I've boot osx with -f
    The system start and working...but:

    Keybord doesn't work
    Touchpad doesn't work
    (That peripherals works during the installation)

    video card is not recognized (i know that the problem is the hd 3450 but I've read that someone got it working at higher resolution)

    Multimedia key doen't work

    Wi-fi doen't work (but I didn't installed any kext during installation)

    and Audio doesn't work (also if I've installed IDT kext during installation)

    Can someone tell me the right configuration to install it? Or at least how and what kext I have to install?

    Really really thanks...

    And sorry for my bad english

    Default A long way to go

    Your post tells no one anything useful to help you. "Many errors" means NOTHING to anyone looking at this.

    The kexts are vendor and device ID specific - so if the kext does not have the right vendor and model ID referenced in the kext file - it will fail - or pass up the device anyway.

    That Dell is an Intel x4500 based unit, and the devices i see are beyond some to the normal MacOS commonly supported items.

    You have to figure this out yourself - it YOUR machine. they are all different as to what is in the unit from the manufacturer, and even if using common device components - the vendor and device ID may be different that what he kext might have in it.

    You need to do some research on how the Mac OS works.

    Once installed, you need to boot in safe mode from the Darwin prompt with the -x option. Use -v also so you can see what it is loading and if it does stop in safe mode and where. Then you can try -v -f on another boot to see if it will make it all the way

    The MacOS is at it's core - UNIX - you cannot just lump a question in something and throw it here that is non-descriptive as to tell anyone not at your PC what is TRULY going on, even though I am a UNIX engineer.

    No one can help you if they cannot tell what is really going on - and if you are not ready to learn some UNIX - give up now.

    If you install the right kexts (Kernel EXTensionS) with the right vendor id's applicable the system will load them as it finds the hardware during the boot process.

    Read the clues of the boot process yourself and do some research as to what they mean and then if you have a specific question you cannot find on the Internet or in the forums - that someone can identify - post that.

    Smile is this thread dead?

    i hope not, because i have almost the same specs as the previous psygnosis post except i have a 320GB hd and i have 3GB of RAM

    right now i'm running kubuntu and want a more media based OS, so i would really enjoy Snow Leopard... i downloaded this MAC_OS_X_Snow_Leopard_10.6.2_SSE2-SSE3_For_INTEL-AMD ~ SurekhA - Demonoid and burned it to a DVD and all and it boots to the Apple symbol and just sits there...if i could be pointed in the right direction out of this problem that would be great! i'll figure it out from there on i'm just having an extreme mental block right now!

    Thank you so much!!

    Default

    "It sit there" won't provide any clue at all other than it did not work.
    You obviously did not read the whole posts.
    Boot with options:

    -x- v cpus=1 (and/or busratio=20)

    for any possible error.

    Default Sorry!

    No i did everything i was supposed to but it didn't work at first, i think there was something wrong with my optical drive because after relentlessly trying again and again it worked, now my only problem is kexts

    i'm glad it actually installed successfully, but audio worked at first and then first reboot it stopped...ughh i'm beginning to think this isn't worth it
