Download
MAC OS X 10.5.7 UPDATE

Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4 9E25 Retail (7.01 Gb) + MAC OS X 10.5.7 UPDATE . Overall you can get the original Apple MAC OS X version 10.5.5 (9F33) Original-Retail, without any problems and then updated directly from www.apple.com without any problem.

The original works Faster and more stable than Hackintosh versions. The original is installed via the native Vanilla kernel.



STEP 2: FLASHING BIOS

You can find Modified Bios for P5Q Motherboards Here or Here
2. Save the modified Bios File to USB FlashDrive or Floppy disk.
3. After reboot press "DELETE" to enter setup
4. Go to section TOOLS > mark ASUS EZ Flash2 > press Enter > press OK

STEP 4: PARTITION


I used PartedMagic to create the Partition. I did the partition like this.

First Partition : FAT 32 Partition for the Boot 132 Files (If you are planning to create a bootable drive with Boot 132 files instead of the USB Flash Drive) / This drive is not necessary if you are going to install PC EFI V9

You can avoid the creation of the FAT 32 Partition if you are going to install PC EFI V 9 on the Mac OS X drive.....See Step 11

Second Partition: HFS Journled Partition for iDeneb Installation name it as MACOSX

Third Partition : HFS Journled Image for restoring Mac OS X Retail Image name it as RETAIL IMAGE

STEP 11: INSTALLING BOOTLOADERS

You can avoid the creation of the FAT 32 Partition if you are going to install PC EFI V 9 or Chameleon Bootloader on the Mac OS X drive.....

There are three methods....Use any one

Method I: Installing PC EFI V9 OR

Method II: Installing Chameleon 2 Bootloader

Method III: Boot Using Bootable Fat 32 Partition
(Use Method III only if Method I and Method II does not work.)

=======================================================


Method I:
How To Install Bootloader and Dual Boot: PC EFI V9
Many Thanks to Apreichner


This little guide assumes you used an MBR partition during install as the tutorial states. It also assumes you used the same hard drive for Windows. It also assumes you successfully installed Leopard Retail using a thumb drive with Boot132.

Step 1: Boot into Leopard Retail and install the necessary kexts for Internet browsing using Kext Helper.

Step 2: Download this file:
Attached File  bootloader.zip   861.85KB   1349 downloads.

Step 3: Extract the file anywhere, it doesn't really matter where. An easy place would be your desktop. After you extract, run Bootloader.pkg. Follow the on screen steps (During install, if asked where to install, select your Macintosh partition. DO NOT RESTART after install.

Step 4: Install and run Tinker Tool and enable viewing of hidden files.

Step 5: Travel to the root of your Macintosh disk. Locate the file labeled "boot" and the folder "Extras". Delete both of this and empty the trash.

Step 6: Travel to the thumb drive where you installed Boot132. Copy the file labeled "boot" and paste it to the root of your Macintosh folder.

Step 7: Go back into the Boot132 drive and mount the image "initrd.img" by double clicking on it. It will then be listed under Device on the left navigation bar, click it and copy the "Extras" folder from there and paste it into the root of your Macintosh drive.

Reboot your system and make sure your hard drive is your first boot device.


Method II: (Not recommended for those who have Win XP and Mac OS X on different HDD)

How to Install the Chameleon 2 Bootloader
Many Thanks to Apreichner

Alright the RC of Chameleon 2 looks great! This should work on both GUID and MBR partitions. If you dual boot with multiple hard drives on GUID, you will enjoy the added benefit of your other operating systems being auto-detected and not needing to press Esc and enter in a drive number.

If you are upgrading from my PC_EFI_v9 tutorial there are three things you should do first:

1. Delete the file named "boot" in the root of your Mac drive.
2. Ensure the "Extra" folder on the root of your drive is indeed titled "Extra" and not "Extras" (I can't remember how it was, I just deleted it.)
3. Cut and paste the "Extra" folder to your desktop.

Installation:

1.Download the Chameleon 2 Installer Package. Unfortunately, I can't provide a link because of board rules, but if you do a google search for "Chameleon 2 Installer Package" you will find a page titled "Chameleon: Chameleon 2.0RC1" is out! . You can find the package from there. (Make sure you download the Installer Package and not the Binaries.)

2. Install it to your Macintosh drive.

3. Located the initrd.img file on your Boot132 and mount the image. Go inside of the mounted Initrd image and copy the folder titled "Extra" to the root of your Macintosh drive. (If you are upgrading from my PC_EFI_v9 tutorial, you can just paste the Extra folder from you desktop to the root of your Mac drive)

4. Restart your computer.

Please also note: If you used an MBR partition and installed Windows on the same hard drive AFTER installing Mac OS X, and it continues to boot straight to Windows instead of the bootloader. I suggest you download the GParted live cd and make sure your Macintosh drive is set with a "boot" flag.

Known Issue: There might be problems booting Windows XP if it is on a separate hard drive. I'm (Apreichner) working on solutions for that now. This is a known problem by the Chameleon team. If this problem occurs then to boot XP use the standard F8 at bios to select other drive.


Method III:
(IF you don't want to use the USB Drive for Booting or don't want to install PC EFI V9 or Chameleon Bootloader then follow the below given steps).

1. Download these two files: Attached File  Asus_P5Q_RX_Create_Flash_SYSLINUX_3.72.part1.zip   2MB   6094 downloads and Attached File  Asus_P5Q_RX_Create_Flash_SYSLINUX_3.72.part2.zip   646.39KB   5273 downloads
2. Place both the files on a single folder.
3. Right click on the first file and extract using Winrar
4. Type in the Destination as C:\1 and then click on OK

6.
Open CMD (Run as an Administrator if you are in Vista) and Enter CD C:\1\win32
7. Type syslinux.exe -f [drive letter]: For example: SYSLINUX.EXE -f D: if your drive letter is D or syslinux.exe -ma -f D: if your drive letter is D
Attached File  2.jpg   19.61KB   573 downloads
8. Now copy the files from Attached File  ASUS_P5Q_BOOT_132.rar   1.75MB   7544 downloads into the FAT 32 Drive
Attached File  USB.JPG   13.59KB   2995 downloads
Attached File  Active.JPG   33.74KB   1141 downloads
To check if the FAT 32 Partition on your HDD is Bootable. Follow the below steps.

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' and select 'Manage'
2. Now click on Disk Management.
3. Here check if your FAT 32 Drive is Active.
4. If it is not active then right click on the drive and make it Active.

5. Now no need to insert the USB Drive everytime you want to boot into MAC OS X Retail.
6. Reboot and this time boot from the HDD in which you have this FAT32 Partition

Hi there mate, it seems you worked a lot in this tutorial, it's the perfect way for me to begin after reading a well amount of pages in this thread.

Before following your steps i'm in doubt with the BIOS thing, i read in the last pages of the previous thread that a Chameleon patching is also available so i won't have to flash my ROM. I'm not affraid of patching a beta or alpha BIOS (currently i'm using one modified ROM from a guy on XtremeSystems for my P5Q-Pro), what i want to know is what is best, the BIOS flashing or Chameleon patching? What is exactly modified on the BIOS? (i'm ocing my system so i need all the tweaks available to could OC my machine in a stable way)

After this step, i'll follow your article and i'll check if it works with my P5Q-Pro ... btw, after all your tricks, i'll be able to boot the Mac partition from Grub? (i'm planning a tri-boot system with Win, Mac and GNU/Linux)

Thanks in advance for all, keep up the good work! :(

Thanks alot for the tutorial, installed without any big problems first time ver.

Updated to 10.5.5 and also to 10.5.6 and all software updates.
The only problem i have is installing the audio drivers. I removed the 2 files from the extension folder, then installed new ones with kext helper and restarted.
But in system profiler no audio is detected and when i play something i hear nothing.

Any direction on how to fix this?

Second question: What driver should i install for my Club3d HD3450 256mb graphic card?

Thanks!

...and a few questions :) . Can you give us some Xbench comparisons between say iDeneb and the retail version?? Are there any functional differences between the two? It seems the onboard lan still does not work. Is it as stable as running a real mac? I've had a few unrecoverable freezes with iDeneb.

I'm also curious about how to set up a triple boot system.

Hats off to you.

In the system profiler even I cant see the Audio but it works, I suggest you should try to install the kexts once again.

You can also try this Driver

Regarding the Graphics Card I think you should watch for this Post

I loved IDeneb but I love MAC OS X Retail more than IDeneb for the past 3 Days I have been working on MAC OS X Retail and I did not find any problem and I found MAC OS X Retail a little Faster ......It feels like real Mac. Onboard LAN Does not work.....Triple Boot I have not tried that out as I have all the Four OS, MAC OS X, VISTA, SUSE LINUX AND WIN XP IN Four different Hard Drivers Respectively......I think you will be able to boot into other OS by using the USB Flash Drive or by using the Bootable FAT32 Partition method.

I'm not affraid of patching a beta or alpha BIOS (currently i'm using one modified ROM from a guy on XtremeSystems for my P5Q-Pro), what i want to know is what is best, the BIOS flashing or Chameleon patching? What is exactly modified on the BIOS? (i'm ocing my system so i need all the tweaks available to could OC my machine in a stable way)

After this step, i'll follow your article and i'll check if it works with my P5Q-Pro ... btw, after all your tricks, i'll be able to boot the Mac partition from Grub? (i'm planning a tri-boot system with Win, Mac and GNU/Linux)

Thanks in advance for all, keep up the good work! ;)



I have not yet tried the DSDT Patcher so I am not sure.......
I have been using the Modded Bios for couple of months now......My system is stable....
I will try to use the DSDT Patcher once I get some time....
The modification you can see this post. I have not changed any RAM Settings.

Finally! After seven hours of trying...

I'm on 10.5.6 Retail right now. I couldn't boot the system after I installed the 10.5.5 update, so I booted up in safe mode and updated to 10.5.6. And now everything works fine so far!

Many thanks to RoberT_XeS for making this possible! And maximum respect for making this guide! Great Work!

Hi Robert, and everybody
Great thread! I'm a little frustrated I still can't get passed this loading screen.

Attached File  post_326057_1230740004_thumb.jpg   2.77KB   215 downloads

I feel that I have tried everything. I'm booting from a regular hard drive instead of USB drive, don't know if this makes any difference. I also purchased a usb to ps2 cabel tody to see if that would help, no luck there either. And I have tried booting with -x -F.
I'm running out of ideas, mabye there is a way to mod the Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4 9E25 Retail.dmg image file/ so that it is more suted for my system. I need some help here, would appricate any suggestions.Posted Image

Here are my system specs:
P5Q PRO,
Quad Core 6600,
4 gb ocz,
ATI HD 2600 xt
and a serial ata 320 segate system disk.

When you Finish installing Mac OS X it will ask for a restart, do not restart.
Open Disk utility and select the OS X drive and click Verify Permission
Now click Repair Permission and once it is done restart the computer.

One Question: You are having this problem on iDeneb, iATKOS, Retail? or only on MAC OS X Retail

I had the exact same problem, when I tried to boot from the FAT32 boot partition, so I made a bootable flash drive just like in the guide and it worked.

"I had the exact same problem, when I tried to boot from the FAT32 boot partition, so I made a bootable flash drive just like in the guide and it worked.

I'm not quite sure how my booting works, but I automatically get acsess to my system disk and get to chosse which partition I want to boot from. SWAP is the partition I have the retail image on.

I am very eager to try to boot from the a USB drive but I'm having a little problem I can't get the drive to be active. I have followed the guide to creating the Flashboot drive thourligy but there is one minor problem. When I right click on the Flashdrive in diskmangement "mark as active" is not highlighted and not possible to press. Sorry if I missed something obvious but, hopefully there is an easy solution.

Download Gparted its 50 MB, boot into Gparted and start the partition tool and make the USB Drive Bootable.

Take a look http://www.commodore...e_usb_drive.htm


If you have a smaller USB Flash Drive then try that one...........

Hi all and dear Robert
It's seems that some of us have a problem with APPLEVIAATA.KEXT, freeze comes when RAM overcharge nearlly 3Gb
Read this post http://forum.insanel...howtopic=127611

The problem was that AppleVIAATA driver used 32 bits addresses to make DMA. In an environment with 4 gb of ram, you need 64 bits addresses. I've rewritten some code so that this kext uses a kernel api which supports 64 bits.


So i tried their new appleviaata v2, and now no more problem , ram charge over >3GB ( i own 4Gb) BUT now i loose once again IDE drive
To help you, here 3 type of appleviaata

Juzzi driver Attached File  Asus_P5Q_PRO_JC_Marvell_6111_AppleVIAATA.kext.zip   135.95KB   141 downloads
Your driver Attached File  AppleVIAATA.kext.zip   132.74KB   65 downloads (IDE drive work perfect but freeze when RAm charge over 3Gb)
Slachack driver Look here http://code.google.c.../downloads/list (Works perfect over 2Gb but no more IDE drive)

Have you personnaly problem when charge over 3gb with your driver
Cheers

I have two sata hard drives set up in a fakeraid/dmraid 0 array, is it possible to install os x on to one partition on the array? Haven't seen any docs on this, so before I try this guide, I need to know if that works :wacko:

Look your lspci -nn
you should see your IDE driver ID, example:
03:00.0 IDE interface [0101]: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88SE6121 SATA II Controller [11ab:6121] (rev b2)

In the new appleviaata.kext when you edit , you willl see those string:
<string>0x43851002 0x43801002 0x43791002 0x43761002 0x528810b9 0x31491106 0x35121095 0x2360197b 0x2361197b 0x2363197b 0x2365197b 0x2366197b 0x28258086 0x28208086 0x522910b9 0x528910b9 0x05911106 0x55131039 0x43721002 0x528810b9 0x437a1002 0x43821002 0x437a1002 0x21821019 0x43801019 0x43901002 0x43911002 0x43951002 0x436e1002 0x43941002 0x01801039 0x01821039 0x11831039 0x01831039 0x036e10de 0x00e310de 0x005410de 0x005510de 0x00ee10de 0x612111ab 0x610111ab</string>

I add 2 last 0x61211ab and 0x610111ab
OSX = 0x + 6121 + 11ab = 0x612111ab = My IDE interface, that's all
If you see your string, use this kext or add your string
