Hello, I am having problems with installing the OSX on my Compaq Presario SR1111NX desktop. I have tried everything from Boot 132, The Patched Leopard, TheHotfix leopard install.
These are my encounters with each one i tried.

Boot 132: My computer would reboot itself as soon as the apple logo would pop up.

The Patched Leopard:

TheHotfix Leopard:
http://i248.photobuc...na/photo4-1.jpg
http://i248.photobuc...na/photo2-1.jpg

Here are my Specs
Processor: Intel Celeron 325
Specification: Intel® Ceneron® CPU 2.53 GHz
Intructions: MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3
Chipset: Intel/i845G

I have not gotten any farther than the apple logo in any.


Thanks in advance. Please Help. All i want to do is install MacOSX on my PC
(FYI, I have a retail Installation disk -it came with my original macbook-)

You can email me at ms1nanabanana@yahoo.com with any info
THANKS :)

Try this method http://www.insanelym...p...=127330&hl=

And remember to use -v boot flag then installing.

Try Kalyway 10.5.1. Boot with -v flag to see possible errors. Install without any drivers/patches selected. Install them later. Be sure to select EFI boot loader (ether MBR or GUID versio depending on how the disk is formatted).

Use boot-132 and make sure you have a modified kernel on the pre boot disc. And the retail disc you say that came with your MacBook would be a restore disc, not a retail disc, and would not work.

A dual inline memory module (DIMM) consists of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). The gold pins on the bottom of the DIMM provide a connection between the module and a socket on a larger printed circuit board. The pins on the front and back of a DIMM are not connected to each other.

184-pin DIMMs are used to provide DDR SDRAM memory for desktop computers. Standard 184-pin DIMMs are available in PC1600 DDR SDRAM, PC2100 DDR SDRAM, PC2700 DDR SDRAM, and PC3200 DDR SDRAM.

To use DDR memory, your system motherboard must have 184-pin DIMM slots and a DDR-enabled chipset. A DDR SDRAM DIMM will not fit into a standard SDRAM DIMM socket. (Information about which memory technology your system uses is included in the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool.)

The number of black components on a 184-pin DIMM can vary, but it always has 92 pins on the front and 92 pins on the back, for a total of 184. 184-pin DIMMs are approximately 5.25 inches long and 1.25 inches high, though the heights can vary. While 184-pin DIMMs and 168-pin DIMMs are approximately the same size, 184-pin DIMMs have only one notch within the row of pins.
