I just finished installing Leopard on my M1330 XPS off of a custom iAtkos DVD install and all is working well. I have bluetooth, camera, and video (8400GS) working great but still need kext files for wireless, audio and wired network. Anyone have any good sources for these kext files?
And no I haven't abandoned XP or even that other os (vista), I still have an image of both and plan to install one or the other on another partition if I can get this osx figured out. I was needing to learn osx insides and outs because my new job requires working knowledge of osx for troubleshooting and mainly bootcamp installations. I have already figured the bootcamp part, pretty easy, but needed more hands on with the rest.
Me being the cheapskate, decided it would be cheaper to install osx on my pc rather than buy a used old mac just to mess around with.
if only it where that easy. I have read a couple of online threads relating to recompiling and gathering the compile tools and just figuring out what it was I was I need to do made my eyes cross. So far I have found a couple of threads with individuals who have tried compiling a working wireless "driver" and it hasn't been 100% successfull and this is from people who sound like they know what they are doing. OSX is just such a closed OS there are hardly any allowances for driver development.
I am trying to install OS X on an XPS M1330 as well, and have so far had no luck with either the iAtkos 5 or iAtkos 7 DVD.
Were there any specific options in the customize menu during installation that you used to solve any problems? I have got as far as completing the installation but when i try to boot it gives me either a still waiting for root device or IO buffer error and freezes.
Any helo you could give would be appreciated
