You should be able to do a clean install with out installing anything but the EFI and leopard


No Kalyway disc?
No applesmbios?
No dsmos?

Just Brazil + EFI?? :)

Well this is my report:

I formatted my Disk (its a 80GB Samsung SATA drive)
I installed the EFI from the terminal (only thing here is that i didn't reformat when my first problem showed up instead i unmounted all the disks and typed the commands from the beginning)
I installed the Leopard
BUT when i tried to boot from the disk the screen shows up grey for a second and reboots

Any ideas?

I have a p5w dh deluxe mobo, Intel Core Duo E6400 (2,13 Ghz), 3 GB Ram, 1 WD 2500KS (250 GB with vista in), 1 Samsung 80 GB (Where i am trying to install Leopard), 1 Seagate 80 GB (empty), 1 WD MyBook 320 GB USB (Storage), Sapphire ATI HD2600 Pro and Sound on Board

I hope these will help

THANK YOU

This is your first hackintosh right?
Try the post patching just to see if you can boot if you cant still then your board doesn't support EFI

Weli my first hackintosh was a tiger release of Jas back in the days of 10.4.6 and it was more simple (just selecting the appropriate patch from the customize menu)

by postpatching you mean the guide of onetrack yes?

is there any difference from the guide that brazilmac did? (if you know of course)
because he had a p5wdh board too

i unmount the GUID drive use info to get the patition ID
then edit your script like this

#!/bin/sh

IFS=$'\n' # important!
PATCH="/Users/troy/Desktop/pc_efi_v72" # path to EFI v 7.2
EFI="/dev/rdisk2s2" # the drive for EFI
DRIVE="/dev/disk2s2" # drive where EFI is

i ran it every thing went fine press y to reboot
when the drive boots all i get is a black screen with blinking __
regards

my board is asus p5w-dh

I can confirm that this method does not work on a bad axe 2.

I am unable to use a guid formatted drive on this motherboard. I have tried both 7.2 and 7.3. It does not boot from the guid drive at all. On a couple weird occasions I got the

/com.apple.boot.plist couldnt be found -

error and it stopped there. Weird, now I don't get that message and it simply does not boot at all.

I have tried to tweak some settings in the bios:
ATA / IDE Mode to both Native / Legacy and Configure SATA as IDE / AHCI - still no go!

When it say, System Configuration file 'com.apple.boot.plist not found' it was installed sucessfully you just need to put OSX back on there

I suspect I've overlooked something simple here but I've literally tried this 9-10 times and haven't gotten it to work yet. I've installed Leopard successfully several times on mbr, but guid is giving me fits. Here's what I've done.

1. Boot to Tiger on an external USB drive.

2. Copy pc_efi_v73 to the desktop.

3. Copy your efi.sh to the desktop.

4. Format a brand new 320GB WD SATA2 drive, partitioning it into 2 partitions, both GUID (actually tried 1 and 2 partitions several times)

5. Opened terminal and did diskutil list to determine that my partitions are disk0s2 and disk0s3.

6. Opened Disk Utility and unmounted both partitions on that drive.

7. Edited your .sh file to show XXX = BJMoose and disk0s2 and disk0 in the appropriate places. Saved it.

8. Re-open Terminal, typed sudo -s (enter) and then entered password.

9. Dragged the .sh file into Terminal (enter) All commands seem to run with no errors.

10.Reboot tells me no bootable disk each time.

I tried installing my patched Brazilmac Leopard anyway and it still wouldn't boot. Have I misunderstood a step or left something simple out? When I look at disk0 in terminal it shows:
disk0=guid
disk0s1=efi
disk0s2=Leopard
disk0s3=MacData

Thanks for any insights you may have.

Guide worked like a charm using the flat image and the brazilmac patch dvd. Only thing is that, restart and shutdown doesnt work still on vanilla kernel. AOK with patched kernel. Anybody found a solution for that?
