Hi there everyone!
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:
1. com.apple.boot.plist:
<?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 ;)

Did you ever get this to work. I'm trying to install Tiger Server on a G41M-ES2L.
