I got dsmos.kext properly loaded, I could see how it was loaded before the kext on the dvd are. But again...beachball.

That's how I did (but didn't pass the beachball)

1.- Extracted initrd.img with Winiso
2.- Inserted dsmos.kext with Transmac
3.- Deleted original initrd.img and insert new initrd.img with Winiso
4.- Burn.


Post detailed specs of your hardware. Including chipsets too.

Asus P5KR, P35 + ICH9R
Intel E6600
Sapphire x1950 Pro
2x 1gb Kingston DDR2 800
3x SATA2 Seagate HDD AHCI configured.
SATA Sony DVD Recorder
PCI Pinnacle 300i DVB-T Tuner
PCI SoundBlaster Audigy2
PCI Realtek 8139 NIC

The DVD is a DVD9 backup from a retail 10.5.2 install disc (h-mol1052.dmg)

As I said, my system is pretty compatible (just the onboard Attasic L1 NIC doesn't works). The only modifications to a retail installation (from a working system) I need in order to get Leopard booting is removing AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext, adding dsmos.kext, and installing PCEfi...with that the system boots properly. Then I just need to install the standart video&audio mods.

Btw, may this method help for those with ACPI DSDT tables problems?

Regards

Try install using Chameleon.

Install first system, reboot, boot with CDBoot, install Chameleon and kexts, reboot without CDBoot.

Goodluck,

Edit: AppleEnergy.kext? :)

Errr...woulnd't that completly miss the point of all this stuff? Booting and installing retail dvd´s?

I already can install with a retail dvd from an already installed Leopard system. But that makes you install a hacked dvd before you are able to install the retail one.

Isn't CDBOOT mean to save you from that?

My plan was:

1.- Use cdboot to install directly from the retail dvd
2.- Use Transmac or something else to delete AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext, and install dsmos.kext
3.- Install PCEfi, or Chameleon

But sadly I couldn't pass the beach ball mouse pointer.

Edit: AppleEnergy.kext? :)


I meant AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext

I believe this bug is related with your video card. I'm testing in Intel GMA950 with Leopard and Snow and worked fine.

This is a first version, I (and team) can't guaranteed that I would work with all hardwares existing.

We see bugs in this version to try fix in nexts.

Cheerz,

Cheerz,


My video card is not recognized at all by Leopard or Tiger, in fact it needs patched binaries to run, otherwise I only get VESA video (which is exactly what I get with this cdboot), so I doubt it had something to do with it.

Anyway, I really hope all this stuff improves, it will be really revolutionary if finally works as it was intended .

Sorry, but this iso image will not work for us.

" However, when used correctly it is fully capable of booting an unmodified OS X Leopard DVD. To do so you merely need to provide whatever extensions you need to make OS X work in your initrd file" ( http://tgwbd.org/darwin/boot.html )

If someone knows what kexts are needed on your hardware, try to mount your own initrd.img


@Guedes: can you post your initrd.img for xbx2 ?

My initrd file is original from download. No changes. Kexts are on /Extra/Extensions folder inside initrd image.

Kexts: http://img390.images...picture1os3.png (Running on Snow)

Hey guys, just one question....
The 132 works on non vanilla system, or i need a hacked kernel too?
I don't have a vanilla system, it boots ok, but i take a black screen after the initrd load the kexts, i've made a quick test here, i need to put the dsmos in the initrd yet, probally tomorrow i'll.
Thanx for this how to f41qu3, and Gu3d3s for the help and uploads.

Just a quick guide to add kexts and make iso from OS X.

Download this package

Open terminal

Make a directory
mkdir newiso
copy following from the package into newiso:
- boot
- initrd.img
- isolinux.bin
- isolinux.cfg
- mboot.c32

to edit initrd.img set rw permission
chmod 777 newiso/initrd.img
then you should open it
hdiutil attach newiso/initrd.img
now copy the kext you need into /Volumes/initrd/Extra/Extensions/
cp -R mykext.kext /Volumes/initrd/Extra/Extensions/
I suggest you add dsmos.kext NVkush.kext and if you have alc889 also HDAenabler.kext and if you need kext to boot your root device also
One thing to notice, the kexts need this in the info.plist file:

<key>OSBundleRequired</key>
		<string>Root</string>
or

<key>OSBundleRequired</key>
		<string>Console</string>
or they will not load. To add those properties you can use nano and need to be added at the end of the plist file just before the last lines:
</dict>
</plist>
If you need a bigger image you may resize it with this comman, choose appropriate size
hdiutil resize -size 20MB newiso/initrd.img
when you are finished adding you eject your initrd image
hdiutil detach /Volumes/initrd
now you need to create your iso
hdiutil makehybrid -o new.iso newiso/ -iso -eltorito-boot newiso/isolinux.bin -no-emul-boot
and then burn new.iso with your favorite burner (first try with a cd-rw disc so you can redo it later iwthout wasting cdr disc)

" - sounds like you have a restore disc or something similar. What are your specs, what disc are you using, and what modifications did you make to the iso?"

I am using dvd of installation of MacBook.

I modified iso it with ultraiso in Windows

Wow! Now it works!

Guedes, I only added your initrd.img using WinIso and it works.

My iso, with dsmos.kext added: http://www.4shared.c...ABYL-BUMBY.html

Absolutely and utterly cool... :( :( :D this just works...

I have made a pretty generic BOOT-132 disc... It has a lot of kexts in it..

If you can install the vanilla kernel with the kalway disc you should be able to use this boot iso to install the retail dvd..
