One thing to note is that I have not worked out a way yet how to put in information that system profiler cannot see, like say the serial number or sales order number.
My guess is that system profiler gets the info from AppleSMBIOS. Using a different AppleSMBIOS.kext or compiling a new kext from source may be one solution. The source for AppleSMBIOS is available from Apple.
Hello aqua-mac, I have the following question; after reading the dual-boot installation on insanelymac.com, I was wondering if it is possible to install osX86 with a flashed video card on one HDD and afterwardds to install windows xp on an second HDD ?
2 Cases: Computer system inside G5 case with G4 MDD opening Door system and LCS inside MacPro case Mobo: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3P rev 2.0 CPU: Dual 2 Quad 6600 2.4 GHz OV @ 3.27 GHz Graphic Card: XFX 8800 GTS 640Mb watercooled Ram Memory: OCZ FLEX XLC 4GB (4 x 1GB) DDR2 SDRAM 4-4-4-15 watercooled my hackintosh
I also use two drives one OSX and the other XP i have my BIOS pointing at the XP hard drive but use the XP bootloader(Chain0) to point at the OSX install.. turn the PC on, selected OSX and then it boots... if i dont select anything.. then it boots into XP.

Have emailed a complete System profiler to you from 10.4.9.
Okay, I got it. Now I didn't think this would work as I have already tried most versions of SPPlatformReporter from 10.4.6 through 10.4.9 and non worked! As expected it gave the "There was an error while gathering this information" error. So now here is the interesting bit (for me anyhow), I replaced: /System/Library/SystemProfiler/SPPlatformReporter.spreporter/Contents/MacOS/SPPlatformReporter (just the binary) with a version known to work 6.9 (from 10.4.2 for Intel I think) and Ta Da! it's working ;D No more "Processor Features".

Where can I find it ? The working version ? Thank you.
