I'd like to make a retail Tiger-based hackintosh. I've got some experience with retail installations of Leo and SnowLeo, but absolutely no experience in Tiger. Yes - I do know Tiger retail DVD is PPC-only. But server version was released as universal binary, and I'd like to create home server for sharing my hard drives over AFP, but unfortunatelly Leo/Snow AFP version is newer than tiger one's and I have a couple of tiger clients (real macs) on my network which I need to be able to connect to my server too, right now I'm using SMB sharing as a replacement, but personally I don't like Samba and would prefer to use AFP.
What I've been trying so far was booting from a Tiger Server retail DVD using my personal EmpireEFI modification with the same contents of Extra folder I'm succesfully using on my Snow installation, that includes:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Boot Banner</key> <string>No</string> <key>Default Partition</key> <string>hd(0,4)</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>2</string> </dict> </plist>
2. dsdt.aml patched for my configuration.
3. Following kexts:
AHCIPortInjector.kext ApplePS2Controller.kext fakesmc.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
4. SMBIOS.plist, wchich fixes only my RAM memory, which was improperly displayed in System Profiler.
That gave me panic:
My machine's configuration:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3,3GHz Motherboard: Gigabyte P43-ES3G GPU: GeForce 8800GT 512MB HDD: 4x500GB WD SATA2 discs DVD-ROM: SATA LiteON RAM: 4x1GB DDR2 800MHz (All Kingston)
Is it even possible to install OSX on a PC using a retail DVD? If anybody could help me I'd be very grateful.
Thanks in advance and sorry about my english - I'm still learning
