Hello, I reinstalled Mac, this time using EFI, EFI installed in NVGTX295.Fix, added EFI strings in com.apple.Boot.plist

But only see a 896 MB in System Profiler. Any idea that can happen?

Thank you very much

Forgive my English


It's probably only seeing one of the cards? I think the 295 is two GTX 260s in SLI on one card. So...I'm not quite sure. You'll have to search. At least I helped you get it working partially (and that only took 3 minutes of quick reading).

And the GTX 285 is double the GTX 260 then? So GTX 295 is 4x GTX 260? WOAH! :)

Glad it was simple. That was the goal. I'll be updating it soon (hopefully) with improved kexts and some other tweaks that make it better.

You should just have to change to PC EFI 10v3 boot file instead. No kexts were added for any graphics support, it's all done natively through OS X. You may want to check out netkas.org about 4870 support though. I thought I saw something mentioned there about it.


So i will just do this part:
EFI Partition
If you would like to install the Chameleon RC3 boot loader to the EFI partition (something used on real macs, but not hackintoshes), open the Essentials folder and run "3_Loader." Follow the on screen prompts, making sure to type "Y" when asked if you want to install to the EFI Partition.

and i found this
http://netkas.org/?p=237
as i already installed 10.3 i dont have to do this.
ah and will the snow leopard upgrade disk also be sufficiant?

thx!

Which method of installing the Extensions did you use? System Partition, EFI, ...? Your hard drive HAS to be on the first SATA channel on your motherboard (mine is and I've never had a problem). You also should be using AHCI. I think the kernel flag arch=i386 is already in your Boot.plist file, but you can try typing that before -v when you boot. Also what BIOS version are you using? You should update to the latest one. I really hope that you are using a P6T SE and not something else too.

The SL upgrade disc is really no different from the regular retail disc. Why Apple bothered to distinguish them is beyond me. It's still the full installer and it doesn't even check for Leopard.

Make sure you replace the boot file in the ScriptFiles folder with the EFI 10v3 version if you're sure you want to use that instead. If you have other problems you may have to remove the GraphicsEnabler entry from the Boot.plist file in that folder too.

Hey everyone. Im stuck trying to get my HDD to be recognized. The error I get is "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer."

My setup is an ASUS P6T, i7 920 @ 2.67ghz, 6gb ram, 4 750 sata HDDs, Pioneer DVD-RW, nVidia 8600gt (temp card till I get more money). I plan on raiding win7 and duel booting. I have the Snow leopard installed on one drive that is in Port0. It installed onto the HDD but I cant get it to show the little icon on the desktop. I plan on using a External thumb (512mb) drive to boot up using chameleon so I can pick between SL and win7 (raided in stripe). Any suggestions on what I might be doing incorrectly? Ive previously installed tiger, and leopard on a different system so I have an idea on what's going on but Im wondering if I overlooked something.

Here is what i have selected in my bios (v 0603)

Main>Storage Configuration
Configure SATA as [RAID]
HD write Protect [Disabled]
ide Detect timeout (sec) [35]

Ai tweaker everything is AUTO and I have Intel speedstep tech ENABLED and Intel Turbo mode ENABLED.

ADVANCED>Onboard Devices Configuration
J-micron eSATA/PATA controller [Enabled]
Controller Mode [AHCI]

Boot>Boot Device Priority
1st: Raid WDC (my port 0 Hdd)
2nd: Removeable Device
3rd: IDE:Pioneer DVD-RW
4th: Disabled

Boot>Hard disk Drives
1st: Raid:WDC (Port0 drive)
2nd: Raid:WDC (Port1 drive)
3rd: Raid: Intel Win7 (Port3 & Port4)
4th: USB:Sandisk Cruzer (Thumbdrive 512mb)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. PS my audio isnt working but I havent even tried to tackle that yet I want to get the install on correctly. Thanks and great guides so far!

NOTE: YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO RUN OS X FROM AN INTEL RAID ARRAY. You can make one from within OS X via Software RAID.

Alright dude, this is how you fix it. Change your primary hard drive to the USB:Sandisk Cruzer drive under Boot>Hard disk Drives. I bolded it up top. That should be 1st.

Hopefully you have another copy of Snow Leopard or Leopard available, or you installed a patched DVD ala iATKOS, Kalyway, iPC, iDeneb, etc. version. If this is accessible for you, you want to format the USB Cruzer drive as HFS+ and use the GUID Partition scheme. Then you can install Chameleon 2 RC3 onto it using the script, "2_Boot Prep," included in the P6T SE Essentials folder. There, you'll enter the name of this freshly partitioned and formatted Cruzer drive. Hopefully you added any Kexts you needed to the KEXTs folder. You'll likely want to modify the com.apple.Boot.plist and smbios.plist files at some point too. That you can access directly from the drive once you're into OS X again. Once you've prepared your Cruzer drive, you can plug it back into your P6T machine.

Turn on your desktop unit again. You may want to double check your BIOS to make sure the thumb drive is the primary boot device before passing POST. Otherwise it SHOULD bring up the Chameleon boot menu and prompt you to boot a certain drive. You can select other ones (or at least you should be able to). Otherwise I recommend that you start over and try using this guide. It's pretty simple, just replace the Kexts included in the Essentials folder with the ones you need before running any of the scripts.

I hadn't intended for any P6T users to follow this, but someone linked earlier to a P6T version that was modified from what I had linked to for your motherboard. Hopefully you used that pack instead.

P6T Essentials

Ok, well you should follow that guide entirely instead. It's designed around your board.

No clue and unfortunately I don't really care. I'm sure you can find a solution elsewhere on the forums though.

Hi,

Thanks for the guide and for the help I see you're offering.
I had a Macbook Pro but the motherboard fried and now I'm desperately trying to install Mac OS X on my PC in order to be able to work.

I've followed your guide, prepared the stick, but after few seconds after I boot from it, the monitor goes into power saving mode, and that's it.

I have Asus P6T Deluxe V2,
Core I7 920
GTX 295

Do you have any idea what's happening?

Thanks

Use the GTX295 kext that I posted earlier. Again this guide is NOT for any board besides the P6T SE. Your results will vary. Note that your board uses different audio too. I recommend using the install guide for the P6T Deluxe.

The SerialATAPI stuff indicates that your HDD is not accessible by OSX.

Try

Having only ONE hdd in the machine connected and nothing else
Generating and patching your DSDT from Windows or Linux for the IRQs
Making sure SATA is set to AHCI in BIOS
Making sure HDD is connected to SATA1

Also try experimenting with different IOAHCI injector kexts
