For your iHac pleasure. I am proud to announce the emachine on sale(WALMART) as a 4GB system with 500GB HDD is a successful hack.
Attached is the image of proof.



Ok, so I bet your wondering how I did this.

1) AQUIRE iDeneb 1.5 AKA OSX 10.5.7(go get it elsewhere, somehow)
2) Install as following:
(Drivers)

ATIIXP (REQUIRED) [This is your SATA controller onboard.]
SATAFIX/ICH10FIX
ALL sound ALC/Realtek Audio codecs(not sure which it uses, quite frankly dont care. This flood method seems to work.)
SiS/VIA support(last option, not the USB option)
BIOS800 in ACPI menu
Kernel: 970 works, I checked all three.

LAN:
(works, no router hard wired to confirm)
LAN onboard is modified REALTEK/ INTEL PRO chipset. (1389 I think) I batch select LAN and WIFI just in case.

Check REALTEK/INTEL/ZYDAS anyways(fixes some cards)

Wifi:
Check REALTEK/INTEL/ZYDAS anyways(fixes some cards)
I grabbed NETGEAR somehow but the stick Im using is unsupported(update for mac fixes this?)

Video:
SELECT Nothing (EFI in CHameleon catches the framebuffer, no actual driver yet)
(reverse/recompile Ubuntu's Catalyst driver? There is a dated 2.4.4 mac catalyst driver out there.)

DO NOT CHOOSE GUID partition map, ensure it is MBR. Will work in a patched SNOW installer to fix, either I will or someone SHOULD.

THe following edits to boot.com.apple.plist may help:
busratio=8 GraphicsEnabler=Yes "GraphicsMode"="1366x768x32" (yeah, I got the 19" wide AOC screen special too while at same WalMart.)

Everything works WELL OOB except LAN/WIFI, as noted above. I have a known WIN only stick(WNDA3100) and no direct LAN connection to route at the moment.(dont go to best buy for this card if you can help it, get a real working NIC and CISCO blue box router instead from newegg.)

Im on USB Logitech mouse /keyboard so I dont know about the PS/2 checkbox. I didnt check any of this.

I have DSDT dump for those that need it.(cant upload?)
