Default Was able to finally ran OSX 10.6.3 on my 2100 - BUT!! - 03-24-2012, 07:18 PM

The thing that annoys me is the screen not booting properly on 10.6.3. I had to put a VGA cable for it to work nicely or else it will boot with a funny screen with no menu at all, a background purple color with just the mouse on it and wavy color.

I guess I have to haul a tiny monitor with VGA cable everytime I have to use my 2100.

Anyhow I'm on my third attemp of reinstalling OSX thinking I will go to 10.6.6 then to 10.6.7 and see how it goes.

BTW, I tried everything like installing Integrated frame buffer, oldgma950 kext, edit plist on "Grapichs Mode"=1024x768x32 - no help.

My last resort if I cannot make it to work is to load Customer preview of MS newest OS-8. So if there is a kind Obe-Wan Kenobe out there "PLEASE Help"

You're my only HOPE.!

Thanks,
Tik

After almost a year of trying, I finally made it. Gigabit Eth, sound , QE/CI, , KB-trackpad, 1366x768. . EXCEPT Dell 1397 Wifi.

I think I can figure out the WiFI...
