Hello everyone,

I'm new to this forum and I'm actually new to this whole hackintosh thing. The reason why I want to install a hackintosh on my laptop is so that I could install X-Code and develop for the iPhone. Unfortunately, I couldn't get it to work, at least not yet.

Well, I got it installed on my laptop but I cannot boot into the system. When I try to boot normally (ie: leave it boot on its own) I get a screen with the apple logo in the middle, then a shade folds from top to bottom and then I get a message in several languages telling me that I have to restart my pc. On the other hand, booting in Single User mode ends up in a Kernel Panic error. From what I understood (I could be wrong), some Intel driver is messing things up.

Is there anything I could do to fix it? Thanks in advance!

P.S: In case you need me to provide more info let me know.

Regards,
Kassem

Can you post a picture of the kernel panic you get in single user mode or verbose mode? Failing that can you post what the last 5 or so lines say.

Ok here's an image of the screen that shows up when I let it boot normally (taken using my cell phone):

Posted Image

Now I tried to boot using verbose mode, it kept giving me running text until it finally gave a black blank screen and rebooted. Then I tried to boot normally and I got the above screen. Then I tried to reboot using Single User more and I got the Kernel Panic. Below are some of the stuff I thought might be useful to analyze the problem:

Failed to load executable kext com.tootoosoft.driver.Intel82566MM (error 0xdc008016)
AppleIntelPIIXPATA: Secondary PCI IDE channel is disabled.
Panic (cpu 1 caller 0x2a6ac2): kernel trap at 0x48eebfcd, type 14=page fault

Not loading kext com.apple.driver.AppleHDAController - not found and kext not available in early boot
FireWire runtime power conservation disabled.(2)

Kernel Extensions in backtrace (with dependencies):
com.apple.iokit.IOATAFamily(2.5.0)@0x48ee7000->0x48ef3fff
BSD process name corresponding to current thread: kernel_task

Kernel Version: Darwin Kernel version 10.0.0:(today's date and the time); root:xnu-1456.1.25~1/RELEASE_I386
System model name: MacPro4,1


On a side note: What are those boot modes? I mean the verbose, single user and ignore cached something...

What type of processor do you have? (Is it AMD?)
What Distro did you use, or if not a distro, what tutorial used (Link)

For all the boot flags you can do a search.

Primary CD/DVD Drive - LightScribe DVD+/-RW w/Double Layer
Networking - Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network w/Bluetooth
Primary Battery - 8 Cell Lithium Ion Battery


I'm not sure what distro that is, because I've got the DVD from a local DVD store. It came along with another DVD that has around 35+ Mac applications. On the package it says "Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3 For PC's". On the other side it says that it requires a processor that supports SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3

And this is the link I used to install it: http://dailyapps.net...-just-one-step/

Thanks for the help and let me know if you need more information.

P.S: When I tried to install it the first time I did not choose any packages/patches so it did even reach the Chameleon boot loader. On the second try I chose many packages/patches and here's where it got me.

On the DVD does it say anything like Hazard or Iaktos, if not when you boot the DVD does it say either of those names or anything else?
What options are there under chipsets, kernel, bootloader etc.
And what options have you chosen in the bios (if any) ACHI ?

Yes actionally when I was installing it, it gave me a Hazard logo with some face of a devil/monster (something like that). Honestly, I cannot remember what options I've chosen... Is there a particular set of chipsets, boot loaders and kernels I should use? If so, could you help me out on doing that?

And what options have you chosen in the bios (if any) ACHI ?

What do you mean exactly? Options from my laptop's BIOS? I did not touch those...

Well this is a quote from Hazard's site
Tips for a Flawless Hazard Snow Leopard Installation:
1. In BIOS use AHCI for SATA

Then you need to pick a Kernel..again from Hazard's site
Kernel Description's:

Blackknight_10.2.0_Kernel - For AMD Phenom II's 3.2Ghz and above

Intel_Atom_10.2.0 - For Intel Atom CPU's

Legacy_Kernel_10.2.0 - For most Non-Core2 Intel CPU's, and some AMD CPU's

Modbin_Kernel_10.0 - For AMD users and Pentium 4 users

PJCv9_XNU_10.2.0 - For AMD and Intel CPU's (I cant find any info on this one anywhere)

AnV_10.2.0_Kernel - based on Voodoo XNU kernel, for older Intel CPU's and systems without HPET

Pick one bootloader, one kernel
If you are not sure of drivers for anything don't check them, you can always add later.
Oh and erase the mac partition before installing, don't install over top of the old system. You can do that with the disc utility on the Hazard disc

Actually there are no AHCI configurations in my BIOS. The only thing that's available is to enable or disable Native SATA Support.

Then you need to pick a Kernel..again from Hazard's site
Kernel Description's:

Blackknight_10.2.0_Kernel - For AMD Phenom II's 3.2Ghz and above

Intel_Atom_10.2.0 - For Intel Atom CPU's

AnV_10.2.0_Kernel - based on Voodoo XNU kernel, for older Intel CPU's and systems without HPET

Pick one bootloader, one kernel

EDIT: I only had Intel_Atom_10.2.0, Legacy_Kernel, and Modbin_Kernel_10.0 to choose from, so I chose Intel_Atom_10.2.0.

Oh and erase the mac partition before installing, don't install over top of the old system. You can do that with the disc utility on the Hazard disc

Done that. Thank you! :(

IOATAFAMILY FIX(KEXT)
http://www.mediafire...dng4gr59m8r7id0
use MacDrive to get access to Mac OS X
test one at a time
reboot -f -v

I downloaded the files but I have no idea how to use them, a little help would be appreciated :)


EDIT: Currently it's installing. Hopefully it's going to work, but I kinda feel pessimistic because of the kernel I chose. In case it did not work, can that be fixed?

Here's a list of the options I've chosen:

-Boot Loader: Chameleon_RC3_PCEFI_10.5
-Kernel: Intel_Atom_10.2.0
-Graphic Drivers:
--Graphic Enabler
--NVEnabler
--NVInject
-Network: RTL8169_Ethernet
-System Support: SATA_ATA_FIX (I checked all the fixes available, including the IOATAFAMILY FIX)
-Additional Fonts
-Rosetta

I will report back with the results. Thanks for all the help guys :)

UPDATE: The install failed just like I expected. I got kernel panic saying there's a mismatch between the CPU and the selected kernel. Do you think I should not choose any kernel? Would that be okey?

Ok I went ahead and installed it without selecting any kernels and everything went fine and I even got a message saying "Mac Framework Initialized" in verbose and single user mode. But I still ended up with a kernel panic error caused by the IOATAFamily. So I guess that if I can get this fixed, my installation will be very successful and I'll be able to boot into MacOS X.

Any suggestions?

Download and install MacDrive, you can get a free trail version. This is installed in Windows. When you have it installed, from windows you will be able to see the Mac Hard Drive/Partition.
Here are two you can try and if they don't work, try the ones suggested by MaLd0n. Attached File  IOATAFamily.kext1.zip   754.54KB   6 downloadsAttached File  IOATAFamily.kext2.zip   407.05KB   4 downloads

You unzip them and then put the unzipped kext into --The mac drive or partition (whatever yours is named)/Extra/Extensions
Remove the one with the same name first just to certain, or maybe just overwrite it, am not sure on that point

EDIT if you don't have an Extra Folder the put in System/Library/Extensions

As mention earlier boot -f -v and only try one kext at a time.

dellmantt said it and i think its the answer , now what you need to do is install windows before mac osx and then install osx with the same procedures what you did earlier and then boot into windows and install macdrive pm me on leb if you cannot find it , after that replace the files provided from dellmantt :(

edit: make sure to install chameleon from the options provided with the installation

I assumed that was Windows installed on one hard drive already!

No actually, I tried to dual boot at first but the unallocated space that I created in Windows (by shrinking the existing C partition) did not show up in the Disk Utility, so I just decided to wipe out all the partitions and create only one partition for MacOSX. Right now I'm using my PC, and not the laptop... So anyway, do you think I should format the HDD of my laptop and install windows and then try to dual boot again?

EDIT:
This is from the description of MacDrive...

Accessing the files is great, but MacDrive doesn't stop there. You can create Mac disks for file transfers and backups using the MacDrive CD/DVD Creator. Need to partition or repair a Mac hard drive? No problem. The MacDrive Disk Manager gives you the power to partition, format, analyze and even repair disks.

1. Does that mean I could install windows then install MacDrive and using MacDrive create a Mac OS Extended (journaled) partition, then restart my pc, boot into MacOSX DVD and install MacOSX?

2. Alternatively, I'm thinking maybe I could use the Disk Utility to Erase the partition I've already got. Then create two partitions: one that is in NFTS format, and another one that is of the format Mac OS Extended (journaled). After that, I could install windows on the NFTS partition, then install Mac on the Mac OS Extended (journaled) partition.

What do you think?

P.S: I only have ONE internal HDD (160GB) inside my laptop.

Hi Kassem9099,

Looking at your laptop specs I see we have almost the same set up, except you have 3GB ram.

Installing OSX on this system was pretty easy, and here is what you need:

1. Mac OSX retail disk (no need for any distros)
2. Download my selfmade BootCD.iso from here (contains my DSDT and few kexts needed to run OSX on that laptop)
3. follow instructions and install system (you may have problem with trackpad during installation process, dont worry about that-if you have spare usb mouse it will work, or you can also use keyboard to set up everything)
4. Run system using BootCD again and install Chameleon onto your HD with installed OSX, youll find newest RC5beta here
5. Now copy these extra kexts and files from here and install them according to folder descriptions - (if you wont see /Extra/Extensions/ folder on your main HD then you need to create one and copy kexts there), for SLE install (/System/Library/Extensions/) - use kexthelper - google it

your new OSX system should be up and running perfectly fine now
I hope thats clear enough but let me know if any questions

good luck

Hey swavek, thanks a lot for the reply. I have a few questions though...

1. I have a Hazard distro MacOSX Snow Leopard 10.6.3. If I did not choose any patches/kernels, would that do? What about choosing only a boot loader?
2. I downloaded you BootCD iso and burnt it to a CD. I assume I should start the installation by using this CD and not the MacOSX DVD, right?
4. I still do not know how to install files and kexts into MacOSX. Wouldn't it be easier to install Chameleon by choosing it from the Customize window during the installation process?
5. By installing the files/kext, you mean simply copying them to the destination folder?

One last question... Would this BootCD help me to dual boot with Windows7 or is it supposed to be used for installing MacOSX alone?

Sorry for asking too much, I'm still finding my way around so bare with me ;) Thanks again!

hmm , i have never tried that but you can try it, dont install any boot loader just use the boot.iso provided above , then again i assume it wont work

2. I downloaded you BootCD iso and burnt it to a CD. I assume I should start the installation by using this CD and not the MacOSX DVD, right?


yes

4. I still do not know how to install files and kexts into MacOSX. Wouldn't it be easier to install Chameleon by choosing it from the Customize window during the installation process?


kexts are like drivers , you can install them after your first successfull boot into osx later on we can help you with it , chameleon will act as your boot menu furthermore its your best boot loader you will see anywhere in da planet :D

5. By installing the files/kext, you mean simply copying them to the destination folder?


i didnt read what was the destination folder but i assume this is the correct answer and dont forget to use the -f after your restart or use kext helper to fix permissions of your kexts

One last question... Would this BootCD help me to dual boot with Windows7 or is it supposed to be used for installing MacOSX alone?


chameleon will help to dual boot and not the boot.iso after installing chameleon you will see two options osx and then windows 7
