Install Snow Leopard on a PC

First of all,
Source : http://www.infinitemac.com/f57/how-to-install-snow-leopard-on-a-pc-t3137/#post27953
Snow Leopard 2 PC

This was tested with build 10A380 on a Core 2 Duo CPU. (see sig. for specs.) This is how I got it to work, it may not work for some.

What you will need:
1. A DMG of Snow Leopard.
2. At least 2 Partitions on the GUID partition table, or an external drive using GUID.
3. Download These.
4. A Drive/partition running OS X, and a blank partition/drive.

Step 1
Extract SLStuff .zip and open "PCefi_v9_Installer_Final 2.dmg". Install the package.

Step 2
In SLStuff, copy boot using terminal to the root of your WORKING, current OS X Drive (Presuming SLStuff folder is in the Downloads folder);
cp ~/Downloads/SLStuff/boot /
Step 3
Mount your SnowLeopard.dmg and browse to /Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Installation/Packages and open OSInstall.mpkg. Install it onto your blank drive/partition. DO NOT RESTART AFTER INSTALL!

Step 4
Install dsmos.kext and Disabler.kext into your Snow Leopard partition using OSx86 Tools, or a Terminal Command line.

Step 5 (Optional)
If you know your system cannot boot the Vanilla Kernel, Try out this kernel for snow leopard, by DmitriK. DOWNLOAD.

Step 6
If you have a custom DSDT, I would recommend copying it and placing it in the root of your Snow Leo drive, just for stability and can even help when booting your system.

Reboot into Snow and see what happens!

Worked for me, even though the CPU iNfo was wrong :/

NVIDIA Quadro FX4500

First of all,
Thanks Aqua-Mac,

Instructions for Saving The Existing Rom on your Card

1. Create a Windows start up floppy disk.

2. Download the latest version of NVFLASH utility.

3. Copy the two downloaded files onto the floppy disk.

4. Place the Floppy into your computer, go into the bios (usually pressing the "Delete" button at startup and make sure the

computer is set to boot from your floppy disk drive.

5. The computer will boot from the floppy and you will hear the floppy disk being accessed.

6. When you get to the A: prompt, type the following;


eg ; nvflash -b save.rom


(leave a single space between as I have above or it will not work)

Remove the startup disk & reboot your computer, your rom will have been saved to the floppy disk.

Instructions for Flashing a New Rom to your Card

1. You need a Windows startup Disk again. If you have not already made one, copy steps 1 to 3 above then copy you new

Rom onto the disk as well.


2. Place the Floppy into your computer, go into the bios (usually pressing the "Delete" button at startup and make sure the

computer is set to boot from your floppy disk drive.


3. The computer will boot from the floppy and you will hear the floppy disk being accessed.


4. When you get to the A: prompt, type the following;

nvflash -4 -5 -6 -j romname.rom

(leave a single space between as I have above or it will not work. * romname, needs to be replaced with the actual name

of the rom you are flashing eg: nvflash -4 -5 -6 -j 5500.rom )

(leave a single space between as I have above or it will not work)

If you are flashing a rom such as the special roms above you will get two warnings. You will have to hit the "y" key 3

times as the device id and on some the vendor id is changed to nv The screen may go blank while the rom is flash When

nvflash has finished, remove the floppy disk and restart your computer. Your screen should burst into life.


What to do if your flash goes wrong. Even if you have no picture, you can bring your card back to life by following this procedure to the letter.


1. Don't panic.

Get access to another PC

You should have backed up your rom, Yes. Good go to step 3.  Well if you didn't, go here & drill down to the

manufacturer of your card and download the bios of your graphics card:



2. Rename the rom to something you remember if needed like:




It must finish with .rom & there must be no spaces.

Place this onto a windows boot floppy with the latest version of Nvflash.



3. Startup your computer, there will be no picture but don't worry, you are going to do this blind.

You should hear the floppy disk being accessed & watch the light carefully. When and only when it goes out you can type

the following:


nvflash -4 -5 -6 -j romname.rom


then hit return.

You will hear the floppy disk accessing for a while and eventually the light will go out.

At this point you will press the "Y" key on your keyboard. It should BEEP. If it does not, as can happen with a really bad

flash press it again and it should BEEP.

After a few seconds, the little light on the shift key on your keyboard will start flashing. When both it and the floppy

light have gone out you are done.

You can restart your computer & hopfully the screen should light up.

Operating System Interface Design Between 1981-2009

Source : http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2009/03/operating-system-interface-design-between-1981-2009/

A Graphical User Interface (GUI for short) allows users to interact with the computer hardware in a user friendly way.

Over the years a range of GUI’s have been developed for different operating systems such as OS/2, Macintosh, Windowsamiga, Linux, Symbian OS, and more.


guiA Graphical User Interface (GUI for short) allows users to interact with the computer hardware in a user friendly way.

Over the years a range of GUI’s have been developed for different operating systems such as OS/2, Macintosh, Windowsamiga, Linux, Symbian OS, and more.

We’ll be taking a look at the evolution of the interface designs of the major operating systems since the 80’s.

I should mention that this article showcases only the significant advances in GUI design (not operating system advances) and also not all of the graphical user interfaces and operating systems existing today.

The first GUI was developed by researchers at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC)in the ’70s. This research opened a whole new era of computer graphic innovations.

The first personal computer which used a modern graphical user interface was the Xerox Alto, developed in 1973. This was not a commercial product and was intended mainly for research at universities.

Xerox 8010 Star (released in 1981)

This was the first system that was referred to as a fully integrated desktop computer including applications and a GUI. It was known as “The Xerox Star”, later renamed“ViewPoint” and later again renamed to “GlobalView”.

Apple Lisa Office System 1 (released in 1983)

Also referred to as Lisa OS, which in this case is short for Office System. It was developed by Apple with the intention of being a document processing workstation.

Unfortunately this workstation didn’t last, it was killed by Apple’s Macintosh operating system that was more affordable.

There were upgrades to Lisa OS, Lisa OS 2 in 1983 and Lisa OS 7/7 3.1 in 1984, that upgraded the system itself, but not the graphical user interface.

VisiCorp Visi On (released in 1984)

Visi On was the first desktop GUI developed for the IBM PC. This system was targeted towards big corporations and came with a high price tag. The GUI made use of a mouse, it had a built-in installer and help system and it didn’t use icons.

Mac OS System 1.0 (released in 1984)

System 1.0 was the first operating system GUI developed for the Macintosh. It had several features of a modern operating system, being windows based with icons. The windows could be moved around with the mouse and files and folders could be copied by dragging and dropping onto the target location.

Windows 1.0x (released in 1985)

In this year Microsoft finally caught up with the whole graphical user interface craze and released Windows 1.0, its first GUI based operating system (although no one would dare to refer to it as one). The system featured 32×32 pixel icons and color graphics. The most interesting feature (which later was omitted) was the icon of the animated analog clock.

GEM (released in 1985)

GEM (Graphical Environment Manager) was a windowing style GUI created by Digital Research, Inc. (DRI). It was initially created for use with the CP/M operating system on the Intel 8088 and Motorola 68000 microprocessors and was later developed to run on DOS as well. Most people will remember GEM as the GUI for the Atari ST computers. It was also used on a series Amstrad’s IBM compatible computers. It was the core for Ventura Publisher and a few other DOS programs. The GUI was also ported to other computers but did not gain popularity on them.

1986 - 1990

IRIX 3 (released in 1986, first release 1984)

The 64-bit IRIX operating system was created for UNIX. An interesting feature of this GUI is the support for vector icons. This feature was built into the GUI long before Mac OS X even existed.

GEOS (released in 1986)

The GEOS (Graphic Environment Operating System) operating system was developed by Berkeley Softworks (later GeoWorks). It was originally designed for the Commodore 64 and included a graphical word processor, called geoWrite and a paint program called geoPaint.

OS/2 1.x (released in 1988)

OS/2 was originally co-developed by IBM and Microsoft, but in 1991 the two companies split up, with Microsoft incorporating the technology in its own Windows GUI and IBM developing OS/2 further. The GUI used in OS/2 was called “Presentation Manager”. This version of the GUI only supported monochrome, fixed icons.

NeXTSTEP / OPENSTEP 1.0 (released in 1989)

Steve Jobs came up with the idea to create the perfect research computer for universities and research labs. This idea later evolved into a startup called NeXT Computer Inc.

The first NeXT computer was released in 1988, however significant advances were made in 1989 with the release of the NeXTSTEP 1.0 GUI, which later evolved into OPENSTEP.

The GUI’s icons were bigger (48×48) and it introduced more colors. The GUI was initially monochrome, but version 1.0 started supporting color monitors too. This screenshot gives you have a peek into what would become the modern GUIs.

OS/2 1.20 (released in 1989)

The next minor version upgrade of the GUI showed slight improvements in many areas. The icons looked nicer and the windows were smoother.

Windows 3.0 (released in 1990)

By this version, Microsoft had realized the real potential in GUI’s and started to significantly improve them.

The operating system itself supported standard and 386 enhanced modes, which made use of higher memory capacity than 640 KB and hard disk space, resulting in the ability to use higher screen resolutions and better graphics, such as Super VGA 800×600 and 1024×768.

Also, Microsoft hired Susan Kare to design the Windows 3.0 icons and to add a unified style to the GUI.

1991 - 1995

Amiga Workbench 2.04 (released in 1991)

Many improvements were made to this version of the GUI. The color scheme changed and a 3D look was introduced. The desktop could be divided vertically into screens of different resolutions and color depths, which nowadays seems a little odd. The default resolution of Workbench was 640×256, but the hardware supported larger resolutions too.

Windows 3.1 (released in 1992)

This version of Windows included TrueType fonts which were pre-installed. This effectively made Windows a functional desktop publishing platform for the first time.

Previously, it was only possible to achieve such functionality in Windows 3.0 using the Adobe Type Manager (ATM) font system from Adobe. This version also contained a color scheme named Hotdog Stand, which contained bright hues of red, yellow and black.

This color scheme was designed to help people with some degree of color blindness see text/graphics on the screen easier.

OS/2 2.0 (released in 1992)

This was the first GUI that was subjected to international acceptance, usability and accessibility testing. The entire GUI was developed using object-oriented design. Every file and folder was an object which could be associated with other files, folders and applications. It also supported drag and drop functionality and templates.

Windows 95 (released in 1995)

The user interface was completely re-designed since version 3.x. This was the first Windows version where a small close button was added to each window.

The design team gave states (enabled, disabled, selected, checked, etc.) to icons and other graphics. The famous Start button appeared for the first time.

This was a huge step forward for Microsoft regarding the operating system itself and the unified GUI.

OS/2 Warp 4 (released in 1996)

IBM released OS/2 Warp 4 which brought a significant facelift to the workspace.

Icons were placed on the desktop, where custom files and folders could also be created. The shredder appeared which was similar to Windows’ Recycle Bin or Mac OS’s Trash, except it deleted the file or folder instantly and didn’t store any additional copies for later retrieval.

Mac OS System 8 (released in 1997)

256 color icons were the default in this version of the GUI. Mac OS 8 was one of the early adopters of isometric style icons, also called pseudo-3D icons. The platinum grey theme used here became a trademark for future versions of the GUI.

Windows 98 (released in 1998)

The icon styles were almost the same as in Windows 95, but the whole GUI could use more than 256 colors for rendering. Windows Explorer changed almost completely and the “Active Desktop” appeared for the first time.

KDE 1.0 (released in 1998)

This is how the KDE team described the project upon releasing version 1.0: “KDE is a network transparent, contemporary desktop environment for UNIX workstations. KDE seeks to fill the need for an easy to use desktop for Unix workstations, similar to the desktop environments found under the MacOS or Window95/NT. A completely free and open computing platform available to anyone free of charge including its source code for anyone to modify.”

BeOs 4.5 (released in 1999)

The BeOS operating system was developed for personal computers. It was originally written by Be In in 1991 to run on BeBox hardware. It was later further developed to take advantage of newer technologies and hardware such as symmetric multiprocessing by utilizing modular I/O bandwidth, pervasive multithreading, preemptive multitasking and a custom 64-bit journaling file system known as BFS. The BeOS GUI was developed on the principles of clarity and a clean, uncluttered design.

Mac OS X (released in 2001)

In early 2000 Apple announced their new Aqua interface and in 2001 the company released it with their brand new operating system called Mac OS X.

The default 32 x 32 and 48 x 48 icons were changed to big 128 x 128 anti-aliased and semi-transparent icons.

Lots of criticism followed after the release of this GUI. Apparently users were not quite ready for such a big change, but soon enough they adopted the new style and today this GUI represents the basis of all Mac OS X operating systems.

Windows XP (released in 2001)

As Microsoft tends to change their GUI completely with every major operating system release, Windows XP was no exception. The GUI itself is skinnable, users could change the whole look and feel of the interface. The icons were 48 x 48 in size by default, rendered in millions of colors.

KDE 3 (released in 2002)

Since version 1.0, the K Desktop Environment improved significantly. They polished all the graphics and icons and unified the whole user experience.

2007 - 2009 (current)

Windows Vista (released in 2007)

This was Microsoft’s response to their competition. They also included quite a lot of 3D and animation. Since Windows 98, Microsoft has always tried to improve the desktop. With Windows Vista they released widgets and a somewhat improved replacement of the Active Desktop.

Mac OS X Leopard (released in 2007)

With their 6th generation, Mac OS X system Apple, once again improved the user interface. The basic GUI is still the Aqua with its candy scroll bars and platinum grey, blue colors. The new GUI features a more 3D look, with the 3D dock and lots more animation and interactivity.

GNOME 2.24 (2008)

GNOME put a lot of effort into creating the themes and artwork into v2.2.4 as their aim is “to make your computer look good”. They ran a competition to collect some of the most intruiging desktop backgrounds that their contributors have produced for use in v2.24.

Source: gnome.org

KDE (v4.0 Jan. 2008, v4.2 Mar. 2009)

Version 4 of K Desktop Environment produced many new improvements to the GUI such as animated, smooth, efficient window management and support for desktop widgets. The icons size are easily adjustable and almost every design element is much easier to configure. Some of the most noticeable changes include new icons, themes and sounds, which are provided by the Oxygen Project. These icons are more photorealistic. It is definitely a big improvement to the earlier versions of KDE. It can now also be run on Windows and Mac OS X platforms.
