Hey All,

This can now be found at a certian Demon, and also a Bay of Pirates take your pick! - Just search for "mac.nub 10.4.10 Intel ONLY x86 Install DVD v1, Rev. 5 [EN]"


Please note: The MD5 checksums are included in the torrent download, in the "MD5 & Readme.rtf" however here they are again:

MD5 (v1-r5.zip) = 67969e7192ce88e0fb9f8ba0a0b07b4c
And after unzipping you get... MD5 (macdotnub_OSx86_10.4.10_Install_Disk-v1-r5.iso) = 3f7f65773aa392c04b5d3c8ea3016c58

Some of you may already know of my work, because of my GeForce 8800 and Apple ACPI Easy Installers over at my website, or Install guides etc. here on the forums. If you don't, feel free to scroll down to the bottom of this post to see my Introduction.

Anyway... I’m sure you all want to know what's so different about this install DVD compared to all the others out there... so here's the Screenshots, Features list, and FAQ.

The release date for this DVD will be at the latest 26th October, provided the last beta tester confirms everything is fine on his sytem.
Oh and the DVD ISO zipped weighs in at just 1.3GB, unzipped it's 1.85GB.

FAQ

Why did you make this?

I felt that none of the recently released Install DVDs provided everything I required from my Hackintosh, they either lacked in features, the standard Mac Programs, or had bugs that made them unusable on my systems. Originally this DVD was not ever intended to be released publicly, but after I mentioned it in my GeForce 8800 Easy Installer topic, people have been asking me to release it since... so, I did a whole lot more work on it, to make it as universal as I possibly could.

Why does your DVD not contain third party programs/customisations?

Put simply, I think there have been too many Install DVDs over the years that contain un-needed applications, some of which are even installed by default, or others have included annoying customisations. My DVD aims simply to get the system up and running, and provides the application set a real Mac would have (Mail, Safari, FrontRow etc.), you then have the choice to add whatever programs you like. What would you rather have? A half working system with a few extra programs - or a fully functional one?

How long did it take you to actually make this?

Well, I started putting it together on the 12th October and the current release (5th Revision) was made on the 18th, I worked on it pretty much solidly over that period, and it probably took a total of about 75 hours to put together, it's been under testing since.

Will this work with AMD?

It is very unlikely, I believe you need different decrypted system files for it to function correctly with an AMD system, these are not included.

Does this support multiple cores, and 64-Bit?

Yes it supports multiple cores. 64 Bit will definitely be supported under processors used on real Mac's. e.g. Core 2 Duo, Xeon etc. it may however not work on some CPUs not supported by Mac, e.g. Pentium D's using 8.10.1/8.10.3 kernels.

Introduction

Those of you who have no idea who I am, so allow me to introduce myself properly... I'm mac.nub, a 19 Year Old University Student from the UK studying Computing, oh, and I’m also a perfectionist, I’ve never been able to decide if it's a blessing or a curse - I've been interested in OSx86 & Mac in general, for about the last 5 years, but have only really properly used it for about the last two, all started for me all those years ago with the 10.4.1 Deadmoo image, and now we're on 10.4.10, and I’m releasing my own install DVD image.

As you can imagine, and may very well already know, it's been a busy and dramatically changing last few years for the OSx86 scene, with many big names, retiring, leaving due to disputes, or just generally getting tired of all the forum etc. politics and just deciding "why do I even bother?" and simply stopping development... since JaS stopped making install DVDs, there have been various attempts by various people to make Install DVDs that continued to keep up with the quality or JaS' releases, but with each release thus far there have been problems... ranging from things like Rosetta not working, essential applications being removed to "save space", the Network System Preferences pane crashing, these are just a few examples, honestly there are too many to list... so I decided I’d make one myself, that functions exactly the same as it would if it was a real Mac Install DVD, so I bought myself the new iMac 10.4.10 Install DVDs and went from there... after 5 revisions of my Install DVD, I now believe I have a DVD that is ready for public release, i'm just waiting for the last beta tester to confirm it works on his system... provided it does, it will be this revision that is released.

When the DVD is released, you'll notice my perfectionist tendencies in the install DVD, there are no spelling mistakes, no stupid errors, no missing features, no System Profiler crashes, no standard programs removed. Just a plain English, Mac install DVD, that works exactly as it would do if you installed 10.4.10 on a real Mac.

At some point in the future most likely, but until a stable x86 kernel etc. for Leo GM is released i'm not going to be working on it.
I've also heard Leo install DVDs are made slightly differently, so it may well be more complicated - that may just be a rumor however...

I have yet to try Leo, i'm waiting for the GM to be released on the 26th. Then i'll take a look.

Sorry - should have mentioned that, have edited my origional post to make this clear.

Just waiting for the last beta tester to confirm everything is fine on his system... The latest this should be released is the 26th provided everything works out OK.
As soon as I get the OK from him, i'll be uploading it, and will post here to let you know where you can find it :D

So this should work with my 680i board ... sounds good. I'm in! :)

Thanks a lot, great stuff if it works. :D Hopefully your version of Leopard will have the same fixes for 680i boards.

Yes, it should work fine on your 680i board, due to the fixed kernel :D

Only thing I couldn't fix with this kenel is the reboots (at least on my 650 SLi board) - it still doesn't reboot properly... it gets to the MACH Reboot stage (if you look at the process in verbose mode) then just does nothing, so you have to press the reset button after it gets to there! - It shuts down fine though.

Mac.nub,

Can't wait til you release this! It's great to read how you have kept things as standard as possible without all the extras. I've spent a lot of time on the xda-developers forum (hacking wm6 on smartphones) and have suffered the same problems with hacker customized screens which is great for some people but I just want the damn thing to work and I'll load other applications on if and when I might need them.

I've got an Asus P5B Deluxe WIFI mobo and have waivered whether or not to install OS X onto it. None of the releases so far seem that compatible looking at the forums and it looks like I will have to give up my RAID'ed disks (2 x striped - boot plus 2 x mirrored - data).

Looking at what you've said I'll give yours a go as I want to kiss goodbye to MS Vista which slowly seems to be corrupting by picture files.

I see you have an Abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI . Does this work without any issues (audio, ide etc)? As I'm looking for a mobo (Socket 775) that I can use without any hassles. I've asked the forum for the best mobo to use but didn't get any response. I just want to install off DVD and bang it's up and running.

Thanks, Jason

Interesting. I haven't found any install DVD that will install to Sata on an Asus P5VD2MX motherboard. If this is the first, I'm excited! A lot of people picked up that motherboard thinking it was a bargain!

Sean Rob - np

clintoy - Cheers

beniel09 - Generic IONetworkingFamily.kext Fix - This IONetworkingFamily.kext allows officially supported Mac cards that would work in real Mac systems to work correctly on 10.4.10 e.g. 3Com - 3C90x, DEC21x4, Broadcom - 440x, Broadcom - 5701, DP83816, Intel - 8254x, Intel - 8255x, Realtek - 8139, Realtek - 8169, Yukon etc. RealtekR1000 - Driver for Reaktek 8169, 8168, 8110, 8111 chipsets by DaemonES. PCGeneric Realtek8139 - Reaktek 8139 Ethernet Driver by orByte. 10.4.3 IONetworkingFamily.kext - IONetworkingFamily.kext from Mac OS X 10.4.3 Install DVD.

unknownserv - It does indeed.

macgirl - Thanks :(

jasoncheesemanuk - Afaik, there's currently no way to get raid working under OSx86, however it's worth trying this on your mobo before buying a new one. Apart from the reboot problem, the Abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI works flawlessly with my modifed kernel, however it will not work with other 10.4.10 kernels, and it is very unlikely to work with Leopard kernels, so I wouldn't recommend buying this board for OS X compatability personally.

Detosx - Can't guarantee it will be supported, but it *should* be after looking at your mobo specifications.

Well done mac.nub with your latest creation :(

I assume that the GA-P35C-DS3 motherboard...

http://www.gigabyte....ame=GA-P35C-DS3

with a P35 chipset and a ICH9 and a ALC889A Audio controller will not work with your great work...?

I'm looking for a leak of this one, more than the A581 :unsure:

Fantastic work mac.nub !!

Is there any hope for AMD support as well ?

I've been waiting for working nForce 550/570/590 SATA solutions and if this is it, I can't tell you how happy it would make me.

Anyways, thanks again for excellent work,
Cheers,
- J
