@Terc: Here's my .mkext and original extensions.
Graphics and ethernet (for time machine) parts are supported throught GFX strings, so there is no graphics injector and IONetworking kext inside this archive.
I use SMBIOSResolver to inject proper informations to AppleSMBIOS, but = or >10.5.2 is needed or you'll get a kernel panic at boot.
Mkext is around 300kb.

Thanks!

Any reason you included AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext instead of ~Eureka's AppleACPIPS2Nub here: http://forum.insanel...o...14578&st=66 ?
After reading here: http://forum.insanel...o...114578&st=0 it seemed that this was a newer version (8/8/2008) with some important fixes?

I've been using USB for a couple years, so this doesn't affect me, but I'd like to get my package working for as many people as possible before making it available for download.

That's too bad about 10.5.2 (I bought a 10.5.0 family license the day it came out), although I guess there's a way to slipstream the update in.

Anyhow, I'd been wondering if there was a way I could get both hard drives and DVDs to boot from a USB drive, and I think I found my answer (I will test this tonight)

I'd had some experience with unetbootin for installing CentOS on some Intel Atom based portable encrypted file servers I've been setting up for our auditors at work. I just saw here that my suspicions of being able to boot from both hard drives AND DVDs is possble using unetbootin. This is great news for my little project since it won't require both the cd to boot the disk as well as the usb to boot the hard drive after install.


Finally, I'm thinking of changing the package name to something a bit more catchy. BootFruit comes to mind.
GA-Boot-132 is the current name I'm using. Anyone have any input on this?

Yes, good idea.
I'll send you the mkext i'm currently using (less kext, more plist than onto ISO i've made).
But i'm currently waiting for last chameleon release, to see if it will support boot.plist (means gfx strings) from bootable ISO; and dsdt stuff for 10.5.6 and others.

Can I have that mkext?

I have iATKOS v51 installed with PCEFI v9 (Chameleon with DSDT support, I think), and it already has /Extra folder built in. Can I just extract that mkext into the /Extra/Extensions folder and it should work right?

Here is an ISO for
Motherboard: GA-X38-DS5
What works: EVERYTHING except the 3rd Party SATA Chip (I don't use)

Special Notice:
The most problematic part was the ALC-889 Codec.
Mic-IN only worked by patching the 10.5.5 AppleHDA extension.

If Audio doesnt work for you, MOVE (don't copy!) the AppleHDA.kext to /System/Library/Extensions and reboot with -f . It won't work if you leave AppleHDA.kext in /Extra/Extensions dir if using Chameleon.


KEXTS included:
ACPIPS2Nub.kext (thisone is untested. Just if you want to use PS2)
ApplePS2Controller.kext (thisone is untested. Just if you want to use PS2)
AppleHDA.kext (Patched with codec for X38-DS5 - Mic in Works!)
HDAEnabler.kext (For Sysinfo)
OpenHaltRestart.kext (shudown/reboot)
AppleSMBIOS/SMBIOSEnabler

..and some default stuff

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/?gzqz5xggqgm



Any feedback appreciated!

This works great on my Toshiba A105-S4054
I just need to find an easy way to setup booting from the hard drive.
The only things I had to add after installing was sound (alc861), ethernet (intelpro100/ve).
After updating with Apples software update I just needed to re-install sound drivers (up to 10.5.5).
Updating to 10.5.6 with this kills my keyboard, touch pad, sound, network(wired & wireless(have to use a usb keyboard to input).

*** Update Aug 08th, 2009 *** updating to 10.5.8 works out of the box, no matter if you use the combo updater or the built-in auto update, but I also experienced an issue with running dual monitors (see below in Notes section)

*** Update June 15th, 2009 *** now with 10.5.7 flavor

Boot 132 CD's for Gigabyte EP35-DS3

Gigabyte EP35-DS3 Specifications
  • Intel P35 / ICH9 Chipset / 7.1 Audio (ALC889A)
Complete specifications here

What's so special with this Gigabyte Board?
  • Intel P35 chipset
  • supports sleep out of the box
  • ethernet works out of the box
  • vanilla kernel runs flawless
  • requires very few patches to make compatible to Apple's specs (AHCI patch and ALC 889a Audio only)
  • very cheap!

What's new with these Boot 132 disks as of June 2009?
  • NOW improved for Leopard 10.5.7 (and also works with 10.5.8 without issues)
  • NEW AHCI support for ICH9 and ICH10 included w/ orange drive icons fix (thx chamelon team and netkas)
  • NEW Wi-Fi support for lots of third party Wi-Fi cards with Broadcom 43xx chips (like Buffalo AirStation WLI2-PCI-G54S) (thx macsmart)
  • NEW and legacy kext for AppleHDA.kext in 10.5.7++ - means native support, no kernel panics (thx tmongkol)
  • NEW no installation crashes in user mode with EA Games' Spore or ADOBE Creative Suite 2
  • NEW Time Machine via 3rd party Firewire PCI card
  • NEW 100% EPOS I. compliant.
  • NEW AppleTyMCEDriver.kext native support (means natively disabled by unsuccesful probing ;-) so no kernel panics because system runs as "myMek" not as "MacPro4,1" anymore (thx to netkas)

Notes
  • 100% SlimBuild-Preboot compliant (find SlimBuild Creator here)
  • Support for ATI graphic cards (Netkas' Natit for Radeon HD 38702, 3870, 3850 , 2600pro, 2600XT)
  • Support for nVIDIA graphic cards (Natit, taken from Sonotone's image, tested with Gigaybyte GeForce 7600GT)
  • Psystar's OpenHaltRestart.kext included
  • Psystar's AppleDecrypt.kext (some people say it is faster than dsmos.kext)
  • Sleep/Reboot/Vanilla all working like a charm***
  • *** well there are issues if you are using two monitors (two displays, two tft, whatever), sleep will not work then! Until now I could not determine if this is a hackintosh phenomenon resulting from Netkas' video drivers that I am using or if this is an Apple issue (there are threads on the Apple forum discussing dual screen issues aswell, see here.)

BIOS Settings:
  • Required: Integrated Peripherals -> SATA AHCI Mode => ENABLED (!)
  • this has to be enabled now to circumvent "still waiting for root device" (thanx 2 nameless2k)
Known issues:
  • static IP required for ethernet adapter, DHCP works, but after sleep, ethernet is broken, simply do a manual configuration, not manual DHCP configuration
  • Legacy Audio is supported from 10.5.2 upwards, if using 10.5.0 or 10.5.1 Retail Install DVD you will not have sound in the welcome intro after first reboot!
Recommendations for a better life without hassle
  • Install Leopard with ONLY the DVD Drive and the harddisk connected
  • Disconnect all other drives while installation
  • Get a Leopard RETAIL copy from a store. There are some mislabled copies of Leopard (like 10.5.4) on the net that will NOT work, although REAL retail 10.5.4 does.
  • If anything doesn't work (like installation issues) try to repair disk permissions first (Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility.app -> repair disk permissions) and then try again
  • take a whole harddisk for Leo, don't fool around with different operating systems on one harddrive, this 50$ harddrive is an investment into hassle free and time saving installations, believe me and millions of other insanelymac folks...
DownloadsFeedback about experiences and issues much appreciated :-)


I appreciate modifications to support the rest of the Gigabyte boards (like EP35-DS3R, EP35-DS3L, EP45-DSxyz and so on). Included mkext can easily be unpacked using this simple command:
mkextunpack -d /path/to/unpack/the/kexts /source/of/Extensions.mkext


Enjoy the summer sunshine, Snow Kitty is coming ;)

Sonotone, I like your images a lot. And I like the idea of multiboot images, but I find it more complicated to overview. I prefer specialized solutions for each motherboard or laptop type and so on. But this is my opinion only:

Using a multiboot image
[+] only one image for all possible configurations
[-] having to choose the appropriate configuration each time you boot
[-] no standard afaik (in comparison to Galaxy's SlimBuild Creator)

Using a SlimBuild-standard image
[-] highly specialized image
[+] compliant to the SlimBuild-Preboot standard, which might have advantages here or there

Anyway, bien de choses d'allegemagne a france, xi :-)

p.s. are there any compliancy rules yet for multiboot-images? I haven't seen any scripts or tools for this task.

Yes, i understand and agree your point of view. But in some cases, differents .mkext are needed for the same hardware.
Example with my lappy: since the 10.5.6 update, we need different PS2 injector. I found more productive to add both mkext versions in one ISO, instead of creating 2 ISOs.
You can also create one ISO for you all computers, different boot scenarios... so i find it very flexible.
And last note, the standard pre-exist to Slimbuild: it was created by david elliott, the only thing added is the original boot file patched by munky to allow custom kernel.

SlimBuild-Preboot initrd can be merged with graphic selector:
- copy yours initrd in graphic ISO folder, edit ISOLINUX.CFG to create/edit/remove menu entries.
- copy "boot" file from slimbuild preboot if you use a custom kernel or boot.plist
- create folder on your desktop called MKIso, and copy ISO content in it
- then you'll find a file called MKIT.SH: just drop it in terminal and it will build your ISO.

It is indeed very flexible. Right. For my own systems I could use a dual-boot system, aswell. Anyway,my view was from the view of a user who is just getting into this OSX86 thing. I wanted to make it as easy as possible and decided for separated images therefore.

SlimBuild-Preboot initrd can be merged with graphic selector:
- copy yours initrd in graphic ISO folder, edit ISOLINUX.CFG to create/edit/remove menu entries.
- copy "boot" file from slimbuild preboot if you use a custom kernel or boot.plist

Thanks I'll definitly have a look into it. Could you integrate this into the SlimBuild creator?
