I successfully installed a 10.6.7 and a (rescue) 10.6.4 partition on the same GX520 (see above posts)
but any success story upgrading to 10.6.8 or 10.7 is welcome.
Retail/vanilla of course ;)

Thanks for the links to nawcom legacy_kernel and sleepenabler kext.
I forgot Sleepenabler.kext in the updated partition /E/E... certainly the cause of the issue...

I was wondering the same FliBip, but wasn't planning to post until I had tried more by myself. Software Update to 10.6.8 broke my install, also 2 more attempts using combo update & replacing AppleACPI and IOPCI(?) kexts wath 10.6.7 versions also unsuccessful. I just removed sleep enabler to try and get 10.6.8 running, system continually reboots after perhaps 10 lines of text.

e2a: just read post 220, will try folllowing the instructions in the link.

I got 10.6.8 working on my GX620 using post 220. I installed the combo update at Apple's main website, installed the legacy kernel, then installed the framebuffer kext and restarted and I'm typing this up in the osx.

Would this guide/build/kernal work with an Optiplex GX520 with the 3.4GHz Pentium D 945 Dual Core? Thanks!

I tried again to upgrade my gx520/pentiumD from 10.6.7 to 10.6.8 on a spare disk with legacy_kernel-10.6.8.
It runs with major issues ;) :
- runs very slowly,
- usb devices not mountable (but visible in sys.profiler)
- airport (add-on pci card) is broken

Simple workarounds (replacing IOPCI, IOUSB...) do not solve the problems.

Gfx gma950 OK with QE/CI. With DSDT, no need to replace AppleIntelIntegratedframebuffer.kext.

have u tried updating to 10.6.8 ?

I had 10.6.6 with legacy kernel, I installed 10.68 combo then installed corresponding legacy kernel before restart. then on boot, the wheel spun and just got darker and stuck!!!!

in verbose mode i could check it was still alive by plugging in and out USB's (it showed messages about devices on the dark screen) but i waited for 15 minutes but it didnt proceed from the black screen !!! i couldnt even see the last message because the whole screen turns dark in verbose and you can see the mouse flickering after few seconds !!!!

the update works !!! install 10.6.8 combo then nawcom legacy kernel 10.8.0 then run kext utility with framebuffer kext. Restart it should work. I had to install all kexts because i started from a clean 10.6 retail + myHack.

Lion needs atleast CORE 2 DUO cpu .... so wait for a lion hack to appear for old machines...

Thank you.. to you and the team!

This takes some dedication.....

Windows coder myself but just moving into mobile development.

GX520 up and running!

Not sure if this is covered, but... One tip to people using windows Kboard google british-windows-3.keylayout (may have been windows-2 on the site) credit to some bloke called Phil (sorry Phil, cut, pasted and run, so navigated away from your page and missed your surname!!)

Off to do some coding now.. :-)

I would suggest that you read right through and then re-read to make sure you understand each step and/or download/print for future reference

Please read the EDITS before posting a question.

What you need for install
1- Access to a MAC or Hack (Running 10.0-10.6 doesn't matter which)
2- Mac OS X Install DVD
3- 8GB or larger External USB Drive or Flash Drive
4- myHack installer found here http://osx86.sojugar...r-1-1-released/
UPDATE- Updated myHack for the 10.6.4 Legacy Kernel http://blog.nawcom.com/?p=242
5-Carbon Copy Cloner (free) found here http://www.bombich.com/
6-One Kext each for Audio, Lan & Video Note for video with 10.6.3-4 you only need one kext for video but
if you are installing form an earlier DVD or image you will need to upgrade to at least 10.6.3, if not a DSDT
or GFX Strings will be needed (kexts posted below)
7-Common sense & patience.

This method differs from the method on the myhack site as I found this simpler. I will call the Mac or Hack used to do this "Donor" the USB drive "Install"

INSTALLATION -- Attach USB drive to "Donor" computer. Open Disk Utility and partition the USB drive. Use one partition Mac OS extended journaled and under options pick GUID partition table.

Insert Mac OS X Install DVD. DO NOT click on the install Mac OS X when it pops up.
In the Finder Go Menu- Go to folder-type /Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Installation/Packages..Open 'OSInstall.mpkg NOT OSInstall.pkg or the upgrade.pkg ..MAKE SURE that the destination chosen is the external drive "Install" Under the custom tab, uncheck printer drivers, languages, fonts etc, if you need any of these, they can be installed later. When the install is finished, close the installer.

Note: If you get an installation failed message after install it is safe to ignore it, this is a common but inconsistent error. It happens when the installer can not “bless” the targeted partition and it believes your system will not be bootable.

Next (still on 'Donor" computer open the myHack.mpkg. It is most IMPORTANT that you change install location to the USB drive "Install"
Check the following options..com.apple.Boot.plist......Graphics Enabler....Chocolate Kernel......evOverboot.kext......IOATAFamily.kext....
..IONetworkingFamily.kext.....Elliotforcelegacy.kext.......NullCPUPowerManagement.kext--
Close myhack installer when finished.


Copy Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) and myHack.mpkg all these attachments to the USB disc "Install" They will be needed later.


Updated Kext

EDIT For DSDT for Video see Post #4 below. If you intend to do the dsdt DON"T install frame buffer kext.


Eject and unplug "Install" from "Donor"

TRANSFER TO OPTIPLEX -- Plug in USB "Install" to your Dell Optiplex. Boot dell and enter Bios (tap F2 key while starting) Under Drives/Sata operation choose Combination, save and exit bios now Tap F12 to enter boot options, choose USB device. When you see the Chameleon Boot loader screen tap the space bar and type -v If the boot hangs this will help. Be patient the first boot always take time.
You should get to the OS X setup screen, you will not have sound or ethernet or accelerated graphics yet, will fix that later.

TRANSFER from "Install" to Dell Optiplex Hard Drive-- You should now be booted into OS X on the Dell from the USB Drive. Open Disk Utility and partition the Dell Internal Drive. If you want to dual boot with Windows Later have two partitions on Mac os extended and one NTFS (or DOS) or you may want to have a partition for your OS X backup, or three partitions MAC-Windows-Backup. or just one partition. For simplicity now name your os x partition "MAC" Whatever you choose go ahead and do it.

When you have finished partitioning open CCC, set source to"Install", destination to "MAC" settings to copy all and erase destination unchecked. Go ahead and clone.
When cloning is finished run myhack again with the same settings, destination "MAC" .. or simpler run the Chameleon installer if you downloaded it earlier again select destination "MAC". Either method will do the same, that is, install the boot loader to the internal drive.

Now restart and boot from "MAC"



EDIT For Onboard Network problems. With some routers a "mac address has to be set. Thanks to Weazlmon for this solution
Open a terminal window and type (not sure if you need to sudo -s first):

cd /etc
sudo nano rc.local

edit the end of the file with:

ifconfig en0 ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

Change com.apple.boot.plist in extra folder to

If you upgrade "Chameleon" at any time you must replace the "Boot" file again. I suggest you leave the "Legacy Kernel" in place so that you can boot "legacy_kernel" at the boot prompt in case of problems.

I would suggest that you read right through and then re-read to make sure you understand each step and/or download/print for future reference

Please read the EDITS before posting a question.

What you need for install
1- Access to a MAC or Hack (Running 10.0-10.6 doesn't matter which)
2- Mac OS X Install DVD
3- 8GB or larger External USB Drive or Flash Drive
4- myHack installer found here http://osx86.sojugar...r-1-1-released/
UPDATE- Updated myHack for the 10.6.4 Legacy Kernel http://blog.nawcom.com/?p=242
5-Carbon Copy Cloner (free) found here http://www.bombich.com/
6-One Kext each for Audio, Lan & Video Note for video with 10.6.3-4 you only need one kext for video but
if you are installing form an earlier DVD or image you will need to upgrade to at least 10.6.3, if not a DSDT
or GFX Strings will be needed (kexts posted below)
7-Common sense & patience.

This method differs from the method on the myhack site as I found this simpler. I will call the Mac or Hack used to do this "Donor" the USB drive "Install"

INSTALLATION -- Attach USB drive to "Donor" computer. Open Disk Utility and partition the USB drive. Use one partition Mac OS extended journaled and under options pick GUID partition table.

Insert Mac OS X Install DVD. DO NOT click on the install Mac OS X when it pops up.
In the Finder Go Menu- Go to folder-type /Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Installation/Packages..Open 'OSInstall.mpkg NOT OSInstall.pkg or the upgrade.pkg ..MAKE SURE that the destination chosen is the external drive "Install" Under the custom tab, uncheck printer drivers, languages, fonts etc, if you need any of these, they can be installed later. When the install is finished, close the installer.

Note: If you get an installation failed message after install it is safe to ignore it, this is a common but inconsistent error. It happens when the installer can not “bless” the targeted partition and it believes your system will not be bootable.

Next (still on 'Donor" computer open the myHack.mpkg. It is most IMPORTANT that you change install location to the USB drive "Install"
Check the following options..com.apple.Boot.plist......Graphics Enabler....Chocolate Kernel......evOverboot.kext......IOATAFamily.kext....
..IONetworkingFamily.kext.....Elliotforcelegacy.kext.......NullCPUPowerManagement.kext--
Close myhack installer when finished.


Copy Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) and myHack.mpkg all these attachments to the USB disc "Install" They will be needed later.


Updated Kext

EDIT For DSDT for Video see Post #4 below. If you intend to do the dsdt DON"T install frame buffer kext.


Eject and unplug "Install" from "Donor"

TRANSFER TO OPTIPLEX -- Plug in USB "Install" to your Dell Optiplex. Boot dell and enter Bios (tap F2 key while starting) Under Drives/Sata operation choose Combination, save and exit bios now Tap F12 to enter boot options, choose USB device. When you see the Chameleon Boot loader screen tap the space bar and type -v If the boot hangs this will help. Be patient the first boot always take time.
You should get to the OS X setup screen, you will not have sound or ethernet or accelerated graphics yet, will fix that later.

TRANSFER from "Install" to Dell Optiplex Hard Drive-- You should now be booted into OS X on the Dell from the USB Drive. Open Disk Utility and partition the Dell Internal Drive. If you want to dual boot with Windows Later have two partitions on Mac os extended and one NTFS (or DOS) or you may want to have a partition for your OS X backup, or three partitions MAC-Windows-Backup. or just one partition. For simplicity now name your os x partition "MAC" Whatever you choose go ahead and do it.

When you have finished partitioning open CCC, set source to"Install", destination to "MAC" settings to copy all and erase destination unchecked. Go ahead and clone.
When cloning is finished run myhack again with the same settings, destination "MAC" .. or simpler run the Chameleon installer if you downloaded it earlier again select destination "MAC". Either method will do the same, that is, install the boot loader to the internal drive.

Now restart and boot from "MAC"



EDIT For Onboard Network problems. With some routers a "mac address has to be set. Thanks to Weazlmon for this solution
Open a terminal window and type (not sure if you need to sudo -s first):

cd /etc
sudo nano rc.local

edit the end of the file with:

ifconfig en0 ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

where you replace the xx's with your actual MAC address

press ctrl-x, and select y to save it.



OK Video, Audio & Lan--- Move the kexts & kext utility to desktop, Unzip them all. Drag audio, ethernet & framebuffer kexts onto kext utility icon and it will install them and rebuild caches and permissions automatically. when it is finished reboot and all will be working.

I have been working on this for days with my Dell GX620. I previously had a distro install for 10.5, now I'm installing on a fresh HD 10.6.7.

I followed the instructions. When booting from my USB drive (the myhack install image) I get to this and it then hangs:

[ PCI configuration begin ]



Ideas?

Here's How I got mine working, after about a week of messing around making the following show-stopping errors:
-Will not work on 10.6.7 DVD
-myHack 2RCx does not work, you NEED myHack 1.1
-Doing -v at chameleon boot loader is not enough, you NEED -v -x

So here's what did work (plus extra stuff you may not need) PS i wrote this to myself!.......

using: http://www.insanelym...p...396&start=0

10.6.3 install to USB drive.
myHack 1.1 install on that USB install.
added the  AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext.zip ( 65.67K ) listed to Extra and S/L/E (?) because I was not sure into which one it should be loaded.

You need to do not just -v, but -x also that it loads up ALL the kexts.

Enter account information etc.

It can now reboot direct to the USB drive.

It said that frame buffer and another kext (can't remember) were improperly installed and so can't be used. I think this is to say that dragging and dropping into the directory of a system you're not currently running isn't enough.

Once at desktop (via other usb or otherwise) copy appleintegratedFramebuffer, AppleAC97audio, applebcm575ethernet, kextutility, and chameleon to desktop.

(figure out your mac address this is mine) 00:e2:e3:ee:d1:2a is my en0 mac address

-------
Made a backup on desktop. A dmg.

-----
downloaded 10.6.8 combo update v1.1 and nawoms legac_kernel 10.8.0v2.pkg
made a backup to desktop.

-------

Installed:
OSX updates including iTunes java etc.

Perian.
TheUnarchiver.
AppCleaner.
CarbonCopyCloner
Appfresh.
OnyX
spotify
growl
soundflower
smutefy


SwitchResX: custom resolution: CVT-RB, 1890x1038, 59.894Hz Vert Scan rate, Pixel clock 132.5 not interlaced, both positive syncs true.
------
Used CCC to clone from USB to internal HD

Then used Chameleon RC5pre8 as boot loader. To install it I used the Dr Hurt's installer (NB I initially tried tonymacx86's RC5pre6 which had a weird effect with graphical (non verbose) startup…It first booted up with a blue hue over the screen and i couldn't click or type, but i COULD move the mouse… weird.)

Hello thanks for the install guide but i have some questions about installing on my Dell GX 520 intel D

In your install guide after cloning with CCC you must install myhack again en you mention install the boot loader to the internal drive what do you mean with install the boot loader to the internal drive, maybe this is a noob question but i cant figured out how!

I have also a question about upgrading to 10.6.8 after everything works how can i upgrade from 10.6.3 to 10.6.8

And the last question how can i get the GMA 950 enabled with QE/CI.

Thanks in advance

Anyone having issues with the app store after 10.6.8 update? I keep getting the "device or computer could not be validated"

I've added "EthernetBuiltIn/y" and "PCIUD/1" to my com.apple.boot and still nothing. Anyone else?

I had the same problem on my GX520 this trick lets app store works.

To do this i:
- downloaded EFI Studio, selected Ethernet, selected Add Device. Then clicked write to com.apple.boot.plist.
- Then went to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/apple.com.boot.plist and selected the new key and string it added.
- Then coped this string and pasted into the /Extra/apple.com.boot.plist file and saved.

Then important STEP!
- Remove all network devices from System Preferences/Network.
- Delete deleting library>preferences>system configuration> NetworkInterfaces.plist file.

* Finally, Reboot.

After reboot, go to System Preferences/Network add add devices. Click (Ethernet) FIRST!! Then add the other adapters you use to connect to the internet.

Voila. App Store now works
