Is there a secret to burning the ISO?


Did you compare the MD5 checksum after downbload? Maybe the file is corrupted.

Sorry, just to be sure: in MakeCD, you did choose "import CD image" (don't remember exact wording) from the menu?

79.00 is about 100usd.

I think thats a fair price for all the work that has poured into this...

Now If I just had a mac... I've been saying forever I will get one for this but haven't yet...

Someone post some screenshots please...?

I can't seem to get the CD to be recognized on my Powerbook5,8.


I burned it with Makecd as well and it worked just fine on my PB 5.9.


make sure to use the "add track button" in make cd, after that a new windoiw will open, there's a button there you click to select the track type, select "image file", select the ISO with the requester and burn, it should work that way.


Good luck,


Dragster.

I'm curious...as far as the macs go, you guys support g4.  I'm sure there is a reason why you don't bother with g5, but can you tell me what it is?

Can't wait to buy this in order to install it on my 12" PowerBook..... What do you mean there is n...... Oh well ...

Nope, no ATI graphics.
Time to look for a 15 or 17".
 
BTW - Great news about 3.0 finally being released.
 
Of course this occurs after my PC decided to throw a BSOD while booting yesterday rendering My Windows XP machine unbootable (and my Vista machine has a bad PSU, and my Win7 system isn't up right now).
 
Thank God I've never had MorphOS crash as throughly as Windows does (and on a regular basis).

great news & great price for those that have an old apple notebook lying around.

I  told an old mac head friend of mine to try it out as he was interested  in seeing AspireOS running on my little netbook when he was by my place a  few weeks ago but he didn't have a compatibile notebook...now he has no  excuse to try a NG Amiga system on his Powerbook

exactly what I did with makeCD... I even made sure to tell it to close the CD

UltraISO on the windows side has never failed me either.

I guess I'll try and get some different media.

Thanks

Is the issue of video drivers the only real hurdle? If so, are there any plans to add Radeon-based TiBooks to the compatibility list? I'd certainly be up for giving it a shot on mine.

You could ask Piru, but my guess would be no.
There's only so many models they have time to develop support for, and I think their intention was to support just a few really good choices.
 
Athough I doubt we'll get it, personally I'd like to see G5 support.
 
A completely unsupported guess, eventually we might see a move to ARM.

No, another "hurdle" is that it must use USB for keyboard and trackpad AFAIK.

Do tell? What connection do the aluminum Powerbooks use for those, then?
