I'll explain my install first.
I used a 10.5.5 msi wind installation, everything was working except the sound (i couldnt hear anything atleast). So I installed the 10.5.6 combo update and that killed my built in keyboard/mouse, so I loaded a usb mouse and that works, but the keyboard does not.
I have installed the DellEFI final 1.1 and the newer beta, both didn't solve the problem.
If I boot from the dellminiboot 123 v.8.01 disc and enter 80 (boot from hd) the keyboard/mouse will work, but no sound. The lan and wifi work fine though.
I am running out of options.
Oh also, quartxtreme doesnt work when booting from the ssd
, but works booting from the cd. It's basically like everything works loading from the cd.
Please shed some light.
