No. Just no. You can't use a drive emulator if your computer isn't on. -.-
Yeah thats like me, thats the furthest I got aswel. I managed to install Tiger 10.4.8 but as its not leopard, im not planning to use it =[
lol i thought about installing tiger but then said forget it and that tiger wouldnt be worth it
well my dell inspiron 530 quad-boot (Mac OS X, Ubuntu 8.04, XP Pro Dark,
and ...vista) works very well
It depends on how you install it bro. Mine wouldn't boot when I installed the vanilla kernel, try doing it with the modded kernel and see what happens. Dell's are very similar with configurations and BIOS setup.. you could do it, you just gotta know how to tune your system.
Hmm I gotta wait for the pic I just took on my iPhone to arrive in my own inbox to post here, but I have a custom built comp that I one day decided to try Leopard on, and with its Asus P5W-DH Deluxe mobo and Intel Core family processor I found OS X and my comp to work quite well together. Here's my "About This Mac"
(Running the Vanilla kernel btw )
Meanwhile I wish I could get my Vaio VGN-TX750P to work with Leopard :|
Have you tried any of the HUD mods yet? They look especially great with the About This Mac Window...see my screen shot. There is a whole slew of them in addition to that one.
Where would I find these HUD mods? I used to have a black apple that didn't say Mac OS X under it, but I wanted to have the original one because it looks more like a Mac (because my Mac fanboy neighbor didn't believe I had Leo on my PC, and having an identical About this Mac made it more believable lol)
Here is most of the HUD MODs out there...you may find some more searching the net, or at MacThemes. All the basic ones are covered in the thread.
Let me know if you need help getting them to work. There is an installer package on page 7, but I recommend reading through the entire thread to get a feel for it. Also a couple of the items didn't work for me from the installer, and there were a few items which had variations on them so I manually installed those as I wasn't sure which one the installer contained.
edit: there is also an About This Mac Graphics thread here...you can probably find something cool that does say Mac OS X so your neighbor kid will believe you, however if you use the installer package for the HUD it will change the graphic to look like mine, which looks nice on the HUD. You have to be careful, some don't show up too well on the black gradient, which is why I stuck with the one I have.
True. But you could use another computer to simulate the drive. Get it? Ether way it still easier just to go to a friends house with burner.
