Intel Pro/100 VE issues with iDeneb v4 / 10.5.6
I'm relativity new to installing Mac OS on PCs and ran into a few issues when trying to install iDeneb v4 (10.5.6) onto my Toshiba A100 laptop.
The major one was in regards to my Lan card - an Intel Pro/100 VE - which was not detected after installation, even when choosing the correct drivers.
I then read that using an earlier version of the file "IONetworkingFamily.kext" from 10.5.3 would fix this issue (so long as I updated the vendor pci device id's etc to match the card) which I did, then rebuilt permissions, yadda yadda...
However, the card STILL would not work or be detected under 10.5.6 at all (even using the '-f' force command on boot)
So I then "downgraded" my install to iDeneb 10.5.5 and tried doing the same thing (as I still had issues with the card not being detected after the installation) and it finally worked after replacing the "IONetworkingFamily.kext" with my modified version.
So my question is how can you get the Intel Pro/100 VE to work properly in iDeneb v4 (10.5.6) and has anyone sucessfully achieved this (more specifically with vendor ID 1092x8086)
what is the difference between 10.5.5 and 10.5.6? (I'm big into having the latest version of *everything*, so I would love to get the lan card working under it!)
