  1. I’ve tried several times to install OSX on my xps 1210, but every time something goes wrong. It either won’t show the native resolution, or I won’t get sound except through the head phones, or it will run incredibly sluggishly. I’ve got the kalyway dvd lying around, but I haven’t gotten around to trying it. Do you have any advice for the install?

    I have the webcam (which I don’t care if it works)
    the 3945 WiFi Adapter (which I don’t expect to work)
    and everything else pretty much standard build, 2.0 Core 2 with 2 gigs memory.

    Any advice, or config tips I’d appreciate.


  2. Well ur configuration is just right. The logitech can aswell ashe 3945 wireless will not work but u can swap the 3945 for a 1490 or 1390 from ebay. I am using 1490 from my latitude. 😉
