Hey, many thanks for the tutorial. I would appreciate some help of somebody. I restored my Retail disc to my USB drive. Installed MODUSB. When I tried to boot the USB drive, all I get is a little flashing thing in the corner after boot menu. Anyone know the reason why? And a possible fix?

Thanks

Did you install MODUSB ontop of the Retail disc restored USB drive? A signal on the left corner should blink for 15-30 seconds, before loading into boot.

I'll outline my steps so it's easier for you to understand. :)

I restored DMG to USB with disk util. Then I installed the modUSB with my USB as target..

Thanks for the reply :)

EDIT: and the blinking lastest for ever :(

I followed this guide exactly except I had to use the modcd to install 10.6.3, but the install process worked.
My hardware is as follows:
Phenom II X6 1055t
880g chipset motherboard
8gb DDR3 1600
Radeon HD 5870

Once I reboot, I start off the Modcd again and start OS X from the hard drive with the commands
rd(0,0)/extra/modbin_kernel arch=i386 maxmem=2048 busratio=18 -v
I get partially started up only to stop at the line
BSD root: disk0s5, major 14, minor 5
any idea what that means, or what I need to do to fix it?

Not sure but maybe use bus ratio of your processor?

Hi there. I managed to get the Retail to boot. My steps. I downloaded Nawcom's ModCD. Burned it to CD. Restored the Retail DMG to Thumb Drive.

I booted the CD. Entered the boot flags with the Thumb Drive. It boots :)
But, When I make it through, after choosing Language, It says "there was a problem reading mac os x install dvd"

Any reason why?? thanks :)

Maybe your restored CD was a bad restore, something happened, tried restoring again?

Restored twice. Formatted drive in GUID Partition and MBR. Also burnt to CD. Apparently, I only need a patched OSinstall.mpkg for MBR install. Since this is GUID I figured I don't need it? And other people have managed to install without.. This is really annoying! Been trying to get snow for so long. You're guide is brilliant though. Good work! a lot of other guides are much harder to understand..

EDIT: Could I do this with OS X version 10.6 rather than 10.6.3?

EDIT: I have a log which may help? ;)

Downloaded it. I have re-downloaded it again aswell but still didn't work. Other people commented on the download to say it worked and things.. Is there a certain build I need?


Many thanks for the reply.

EDIT: You think if I bought a retail copy it'll work? I seem to be the only one with this certain problem. Also, You on any IRC? Might make it easier. Cheers

Never heard of this error before :S anymore of the log available?

What this basically means is that I can only boot using the modcd. If I start off the modcd and then simply select my drive it boots fine in some sort of safe mode. If i try to boot off the hard drive using any combination of commands not using Modcd, I get strange errors. Most of these errors result in the lines of white text produced by -v to scroll by for a few seconds and then the computer shuts it's self off, so its impossible to see any error messages....
Any tips?

Try booting without the commands and see what happens. If it doesnt work, try re-installing and on the first boot up, install the 10.6.8 update + kernal + ##### with the OPs selections. It works like a charm for me using modcd.

Specs:
CPU: Phenom II X4 B55 (hidden cores unlocked)
Mobo: Asus M4A88T-V EVO/USB 3
Ram: 4GB
graphcis: Ati 5770

Thanks for a very helpful tut OP! :censored2:

Sounds like you're booting off the hard drive pre-maturally. Once you got everything running download ##### and then install that with Chimera bootloader and it'll work :-). The one that is installed automatically when you follow the guide doesn't boot up with more work, I'll add it to the guide soon :D

You're welcome your specs are very much same as mine, and glad it worked without a charm, read the above to learn how to install a proper bootloader.

Hi there i am currently running 10.6 10a432 hazard release.

i followed your guide restored the 10.6.3 retail to a partition on my 500gb osx drive, the partition with my restored install dvd is 0,7.


i restored the image installed modusb , yet it didnt find the modbin kernel i tried selecting 0,0 as partition too boot as you state in the tutorial again no joy could not find kernel. im assuming i need too change the rd command too 0,7 as thats where the install image is

i have followed the further guide using my hack and the boot cd 10.5 instructions copying the extra and usr folders yet when i boot it gets to loading darwin kernel then crashes , there is obviously something i am missing as it cant find the amd kernel , can you give me any advice too what i should try next


thanks

Okay, so I got it installed...but now I can't get it to boot back up. OSX ran beautifully, I followed every step until after updating to 10.6.7 initially. I tried installing the device driver for my video card, but there wasn't a kext called "ATI4000controller.kext" and I have an integrated ATI Radeon HD4250. I can't figure out where to add it to. The closest kext I get is for "ATI4500controller.kext"....however, I can't get it to work.

The best question I have to ask is this: do you have to have the USB with ModUSB on it permanently attached to your system to run OSX under your build methodology?

Once you have everything running, install Chimera (#####), and you won't have to use ModUSB anymore. As for the graphics card, try googling ATI Readeon HD4250 hackintosh.

UPDATE: Never mind, I got it to boot with the Install DVD in the DVD Drive without ModUSB (somehow). Darwin handled the boot instead and I typed in:
arch=i386 busratio=18 - v

Hi guys, first time posting and first time Hackint0shing. However, I have already installed Mac OS X 10.6.3 on VMware before.

My current build is:
AMD Turion X2 Ultra ZM-80
120GB SATA II Hard Drive (GUID Partition Table)
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200 Graphics
4GB DDR2 RAM

(More info on request)

Here's the problem:
I'm getting an error after a successful install of OS X 10.6.3. However, when it restarts, after selecting the partition and entering in:
busratio=18 -v
I get (after pressing any key to continue):
<somewhat long lines of text>

Edit 3:

Well, I think I got most of it solved. I still have to ask, what do those lines that start with USBF mean? If I knew what was going on behind the scenes I'd be able to do a better job of troubleshooting.
