Can I make the LIVE DVD OSX and "save" partition on a EXTERNAL HDD?
If so I can try this this evening.

As a minimum, install 10.4.6 or 10.4.7 and get it functioning. Then install the Apple 10.4.8 Combo update. Before reboot, be sure to install the 8.8.1 kernel. And install the Paulicat AppleSMBIOS.kext. After reboot, configure your installation as you would like your Live DVD to be.

10.4.8 and 8.8.1 kernel resources can be found here.


This part can`t be done using the package included on JaS DVD`s (10.4.8 intel.pkg) instead?

I took another way.

As my external HDD wasn`t booting after all procedures, I put it inside the PC and installed OSX as I would save on the LiveDVD.

Used the installer and burned the ISO.

Now I`m typing from it. It took about 15 minutes to give access to the System. But some operations take to long as they boot from the DVD and I never liked my Pioneer A109 to read stuff, but it`s a great burner.

Great job.

I`m running with 120 Mb of RAMDISK (I got 2 GB), does it affect the system performance?

Will try with my 10.4.9 now.

This is really AWESOME!!! :)

I'm typing this message from the LIVE DVD right now. Only small issue is that my keyboard was not detected. After the boot process a wizard came up to configure the correct keyboard.

I also tried to use this Live DVD on another system, almost similar, but no luck. The video is a bit different (also Nvidia). Would be nice to create a more generic disk.

I'm also wondering what's impact of the size of the ramdisk. Would be nice to create a automatic script that will look at the size of your internal mem, and will create a ramdisk according this.

And what about making a USB Boot disk? Since 4GB USB Sticks dropped in price a USB disk would be a better alternative.

Very good job!!

I had the same problem but just reconected the USB keyboard and the detection wizard went fine.

Today I tried to boot the same LIVE DVD made and tested on my rig (specs on the sig) on a brand new Toshiba Satellite notebook (Satellite a105-s4254 T2050), and everything was going fine when suddenly a LOGIN WINDOW appeared.

I made the 10.4.8 installation for building the LIVEDVD without password and now on the Toshiba it´s asking for user and password.
I´ve tried the username I used with blank password and couldn´t boot.

And now?

Is it running as SysAdmin? Short name root? Password?

Thanks, but I missed this information somewhere?

Will try now.


>>>> EDIT <<<<<

Just tried but it was a no go.
User or Password is not correct.
The loginwindow shakes and I can´t get pass through it.

Any ideas?

Well, I´ve tried on another PC and the same happens.
I´m stuck and won´t test more as I can´t boot the system.

Is there any chance that this would be helpful in making an installation DVD for computers with "waiting for root device" problem (Ex: Sony Vaio Laptops)?

This kinda problem is related to the drive's controller, that isn't compatible, or there is no support on OSX.

Well. Tried the DVD on another machine. Requires login/password, but root/bootcd are not working.

Just a question. I am installing Tubegirls 10.4.8 and I was wondering if these are the full OSX installs. Including most of the apps that usually come with OSX. Like garage band and iLife. If it doesn't come with it is it possible to download and install them?
