Leopard retail instillation
simplified guide( See Below After RAID Guide)



April 7: Installed Chameleon 2.0 RC1 works Great. Thanks to Chameleon Developers. Finally able to dual boot with Windows 7 or windows Vista on separate Hard Drive. (Download Chameleon Link Below )
those who has widescreen monitor can fix the stretched Apple boot logo ( thanks again to Chameleon 2.0) by just changing the resolution in theme.plist of default theme in extra folder.
Checkout Chameleon 2.0 RCI in action pics below

Mouse Lag fix: this lag is quite obvious in 10.5.6 after installing latest Quicktime and iTunes.
I just deleted the AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext . than delete Extensions.mkext before restart . Mouse lag Gone :wacko:

Dec 22 Update
AppleAHCIPort.Kext Build 31 (ver 1.5.2) Adds ID for ICH7 to ICH10
IOAHCIFamily.kext Build 294 (ver 1.5.0) shows SATA drive as internal
JMicronATA.kext latest Vanilla just added Jmicron ids
Above three kexts are vanilla just Device ids are added
See attachment below for new kexts pack

Sep 18, 2008 Sleep Issue. I was investigating Why Leopard Fails Sleep when idle. Found that Paragon NTFS was the cause I deactivated and Voila ! Leopard is able to go sleep on its own. Same Issue with MacFuse. This Issue affects even MacBook Or MacBook Pr

11 July, For Restart fix -Open AppleACPIPlatform Binary in hex Editor & replace E8 A0 FF FF FF with B0 FE E6 64 F4 ( thanks to CharlesB )

For Advance user only RAID Install
Two Methods Chameleon EFI & EFI v8 listed below
I prefer Chameleon EFI as you can directly boot from Software RAID

Chameleon EFI RAID Guide

You need two or more Drives I used three Drives for Stripe RAID by Disk reading Xbench score alone jumped to over 190

Use diskutility to make raid volume of your desire

Important :
1. Make sure first install the Leopard Retail to the Destination RAID Drive.You can install Retail Leopard From Disk or Carbon Copy Clone from Existing Retail Leopard install.
2. Apply post patch as usual RAID Drive
3 than Edit com.apple.boot.plist (Drag drop on the desktop edit than replace)in the RAID volume add to Kernal Flags
boot-uuid=RAID Identifier
For RAID Identifier:using "Disk Utility.app", right click on your root volume, then Information
it will look like following pic

4.Make sure you Install Chameleon EFI after Step 3(after addding UUID to com.apple.boot.plist) other wise Raid won't boot.
-Extract all the files to user root folder from Cameleon Files folder.
Open terminal type here in example I used three Disks Disk0 , Disk1 , Disk2(Mac OS X creates a small helper partition at the end of each RAID member disk Called Boot OSX) ,
fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk1fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk2dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s3dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk1s3dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk2s3diskutil mount disk0s3cp boot /Volumes/Boot\ OSXdiskutil unmount disk0s3diskutil mount disk1s3cp boot /Volumes/Boot\ OSXdiskutil unmount disk1s3diskutil mount disk2s3cp boot /Volumes/Boot\ OSXdiskutil unmount disk2s3
You are Done Boot to Raid Good Luck
look at mine Three Disk Striped Raid Pic

Tip to Automatically select RAID during boot
than open the Disk Utility to check RAID Identifier(Select RAID and click info) Copy that
than you need to edit com.apple.boot..plist on the BOOT partition not the RAID
add
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>boot-uuid=Paste Raid Identifier here</string>

this make sure you automatically boot from RAID Volume

Included in install Package new AppleSMBIOS which is functionally best so far with following advantages
DVD player , adobe CS3 , LogmeIn ,Carbon Copy Cloner( make your you have installed EFI to the cloning drive after Cloning )works
With included kexts, Hard Drive shows as internal and if in Bios is AHCI mode they are even Hot swappable eSATA
Sleep, Restarts works fine with vanilla kernel 9.6.0
In the forum down Eclau post also shows step by step how to make custom EFI String for Video card ,Time machine fix,Sound


Here is updated Simple Guide

Leopard Retail Install with Chameleon EFI

For any Retail Leopard install First requirement is working Leopard
Partition Destination Drive with Disk utility Select GUID partition
how to install EFI

To install Chameleon EFI its very simple because now it has installer . just run and select the right drive

Install Leopard
Mount the Leopard retail DVD or its Image. I prefer image as instillation is very fast 5-6 mins
In terminal Copy Paste
cd /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Installation/Packages
open osinstall.mpkg
Install on right Destination Drive
Than install 10.5.6 Combo update on the right drive
Now to remove incompatible kext or install requird one
Put kext file in the user folder(users/currentuser(yourusername)/
Open post patch change (destination=Name of Drive where retail leopard is installed)
Open terminal and drag drop post patch
this included Sound file is for GA P35 DS4 or similar Gigabyte motherboard & GFX EFI string for nvidia 7600 GT Card
Make sure in Post patch sh file you replace with drive name(Leopard) with yours Drive name
Boot with new Drive and enjoy :D Good luck with your built

For EFI String for VIDEO , Network, Audio
use Latest EFI Studio ,Select Devices and Click Wrtie to com.apple.boot.plist will add Automatically for you. Now you can even install EFI on destination Drive by this

I don't understand "installed from within Leopard". You already had Leopard installed on your Hackintosh? Or did you connect your SATA disk to a real Mac with Leopard?

OK. I am now running Tiger on the same MoBo. I will try your guide from Tiger. What versions of dsmos.kext and AppleSMBIOS.kext did you use?

Thank you. PC_EFI V8.0 includes only AppleSMBIOS.kext, where did you get the dsmos.kext?

5 Used Terminal to install Leopard 10.5 disc
First. cd /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Installation/Packages Mac=hard drive (where to install 10.5)
Second. open osinstall.mpkg


In first step you change to the Packages directory on Leo DVD, but what means "Mac=hard drive"? You enter this in the same command? Or is this a separate command?

OK, thank you!

I can see you hve the very same wifi card as me. Is it running fast with WPA2? For me it's incredibly slow with WPA-TKIP (WPA2), but pretty fast in unprotected networks.

To format the drive as GUID partition and installing EFI 8 Follow this guide from I_am...me http://forum.insanel...showtopic=73952
than you can install Retail Leo from within any mac by terminal
after installation remove and add kext and repair permissions and boot
So by this method you dont have to reboot etc

The way I installed used working Hackintosh(leopard or Tiger ). to install on One of the attached SATA Drive.
If you want to install on Laptop you need first working Tiger or leopard , than attach USB hard-drive and install as I did

Karaakeha, what you've done sounds really intriguing. Unfortunately, without a more explicit guide, I'm not sure myself and others can attempt it. Would you mind spelling out the process more clearly? Myself and others would greatly appreciate it.

This isn't meant to be a criticism. There are many people here who have a hard time translating their hacking brilliance into good, plain English. Actually, I think that's one of the problems this "movement" is facing at the moment--too many guides that aren't clear enough. It's causing an increasing number of people (not just noobs) to flood the forums and IRC with basic questions seeking clarity.

Thanks for your help. And nice work.
