Hello everyone... I would like to know if there is a guide for installing PC EFI on a AMD PC. I went on to the netkas web site and it said it can be done using ToH's kernel. I have everything i need...i think :wacko: but I have no idea how to do it. I found this guide http://www.digitmemo...-in-hackintosh/ but it has nothing about AMD. so I need some help on applying the ToH's kernel. I hope you understand this and can point me in the right direction. I would really like to upgrade to 10.4.11 thank you :)

EFI is completely an Intel idea. I've never seen any reference to any AMD motherboards that include EFI in the bios.

Once I have PC EFI I did the same as my Intel.

Since I already have ToH kernel on my AMD:

-unpack the zip in the Desktop, rename the folder to iamefi, moved to the Hard Disk Icon of my main Volume (root folder)

-booted in single user mode

cd /iamefi

./startupfiletool /dev/rdisk0s1 ./boot_v5

-the I mounted the main volume

mount -uw /

-moved the AppleSMBIOS.kext

mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleSMBIOS.kext /var/root

-copied the nee applesmbios kext

cp -R AppleSMBIOS.kext /System/Library/Extensions

-rebooted

reboot

Now i have EFI in my AMD
