Well folks, we’re getting down to the end of this process now 🙂 In my last post I was waiting for GParted to finish shifting the partitions of my hard drive. That went off without a hitch and was much easier than expected.
From here, I set about a final reading of a number of installation methods for OS X on the Wind. I finally settled on this one:
The guide there acutally is fairly idiot proof, as evidenced by my ability to follow the instructions. I had to use method B in step 24 to get past the HFS+ boot error and boot into XP. I quickly fixed it so I could choose to boot into either XP or OS X when I turned the computer on, then began looking at updates to the software on the OS X side.
I installed the drivers to get the wireless card working and then set about downloading updates for the OS.
- Webcam not working in Photobooth, **EDIT: Quicktime update fixed this**
- Headphone jack not working, known fix for this issue
- Internal mic not working, no known fix at this time
- Still using Canadian keyboard, waiting for US keyboard to arrive
Overall, this has been a surprisingly painless operation. I still have quite a bit of software to install on the OS X side, plus some updates to software on the Windows side. Next post will detail software and the update to OS X 10.5.5.
