Hi, glad to have you arround for all these years, I hope you have enjoyed and learned as I did, your contributions were fundamental to lot's of people who visited this post, cheers and good luck. I still have one hack, don't know for how long though! Good luck, and thanks for your patience and collaboration!


Jimmy,

Im not leaving this forum.
If you have questions, send them :(

The only restriction is that I don't have a hackintosh machine anymore.
I can't therefore test hackintosh related settings myself.
But I can naturally always help other forum members with their problems, etc.

Greetings,

Wally

I'm just curios what the current status of a Snow Leopard install is for our boards?

Are there directions for such an install such as what jimmy has in this thread?

What works and what does not? and what are the major issues with general day to day
usage.

Thanks

Chuck E.

Hi, there are some files that may be found in a post here in this topic, you may use them to install snow :blink:
I am not using it though, bluetooth is now working properly yet...

Hello to Jmmy & all

WOW - THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU!

I am a total noob at osx to PC and the jargon.
I finally got all the files downloaded
I have downloaded the Leopard 5.6 OS just to see if it will install
This setup is so slick and easy even for me ......near perfect to installation
I have even set up an older IDE 110gb WD/HD with Win XP and the F8 dual boot works great.

The only problems:
1> "mic inputs don't work", but I have sound out ......

2> 3 random occasions I get a grayed out roll down screen, "You need to restart your computer. Hold Down the Power button for several seconds or press the Restart button". (is that a kernel panic?)


My System:
Motherboard Asus P5K-SE L775 IntP35 –
Ram Kingston <2/2gb> 4gb DDR2 667 CL5 -
Intel CPU C2Q Q6600 2.4 8m 1066f
Rb Intel CPU C2Q Q6600 2.4 8m 10 –
Hard Drive WD <WD3200AAJS> 320gb SATA –
Video eVGA VCX N733 8400gs 256mb 459-
DVD Samsung DVDRW 22X SATA SH-S223F -
Sound realtek ALC883 –
Lan Attansic L1 Gigabit
USB Mouse & Keyboard

I am now looking to try a Snow Leopard 64 install, if I can find out how on my mobo .....

Thanks in advance for your help

Hey, whats up all.. just updating my "progress" in the installation of Mac OS X...

Ive created a custom EFI string in OSX86Tools (cuz i didnt find any kexts that work, and dont really know how they actually work) and now the settings of my graphic card are right! But I still cant install some games (like Call of duty modern warfare 2 - I receive the error: Video hardware acceleration is currently disabled due to safe mode operation or a driver error.
Please ensure you have a working OpenGL Hardware Renderer and try again.

Can't really help you there since all I am able to do is follow guides anyway my system is working fine now about 2 months running almost day and night 10.6.4 is stable and except 2 things audio is working but just front one while after sleep it comes back with just the back one.


BTW: Jimmy saw you have a q9450 at 3.0 did you overclock it? mine is 2.66 I think

Hi, yep, it was overclocked, without any harm to the system, I was using an Asus Rampage Formula...


As I said before, I bought Macs and after that I have quit the hackintosh thing, mainly because my job got really demanding in terms of time and dedication.

Hi, probably you have to check the FakeSMC.kext (I guess), explore the contents and remove a plugin related to the ATI chipset). Get the updated one and remove that plugin from it's contents..

VooDooHDA may also be a suspect, update it too...

If that does not work, try a different kernel.

Go to Kexts.com, and get a video enabler, that should do the trick.

will i be able to complete this particular "retail" installation with the image burned in a windows xp machine?

i currently don't have a SERIAL ATA (S-ATA) DVD DRIVE on my pc where i want to install the hackintosh.
i may go ahead and buy a new disk drive (no problem there), but i will need to prepare a copy of the retail leopard install disk on my pc. I already have the image file (downloaded via torrent-please no messages to remind me this is illegal etc, thank you very much)
my current OS is win xp.
thank you.

You need the S-ATA DVD device and S-ATA HD device, that is mandatory.

burn the Dual-Layer DVD at a 4x speed and pray...

Thank you so much for your quick and prompt answer. This is more than a two year old thread-and I wasn't sure if I was going to get any replies. I will try to follow your instructions.
I hope next time I post it will be just to thank you for a smooth installation, and I hope not to bother you with redundant questions! Skeptical about praying, but I might as well.
Thanks again.

One of the easiest installations I have ever done!
Thank you very much. Works fine.
(the only problem I had was burning the image file: waisted 6 DL-DVDs! I would recommend you do the following: Use PowerISO to convert the dmg file to iso. Then burn in ImgBurn to DVD. Simple as that. I couldn't get Nero work for me)
Many thanks.

Jimmy,
Already spoiled: how do I upgrade to 10.6? Can I follow the same instructions with a 10.6 retail package?
A clean reinstall?
or any package that I can add on 10.5.8?
Many thanks

Don't worry, you're using almost the same principles, just follow the steps from that post.

Be sure to get all the updated kexts from kexts.com (really good place to get kexts)

:wacko:

Good Luck!

Well, I finally got Snow installed on my P5K Pro. I installed from the retail CD from my Leopard installation on to a SATA drive attached to an X-Drive USB 2.0 SATA to USB adapter. The SATA drive plugs in to the X-drive base, and
the base hooks up to the USB.

After installing I booted in to the installation using RebelEFI, and installed Jimmy's P5K-Family_10.6.2.pkg, NVEnabler 64.kext (Graphics card), IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector (Orange drive fixer), then installed the Chameleon 2 RC3.pkg

I was then able to boot in to the drive, and installed all of the updates to bring me up to 10.6.5.

It has been working for 2 days, with the drive attached to the USB, with no problems (I don't use Sleep, so I do not know if that works.) but sound, internet/network and graphics (EVGA 8800GT 512) all work fine. Itunes connects to my Gen 1 Apple TV via WiFi, and to my iPad through the USB. My MagicJack USB phone works, and my USB Flash drive. It Recognizes the printer and USB drive connected to my Airport Extreme router.

I thought I had read elsewhere that there were USB issues, but I don't seem to be having them. Could someone elaborate on what the USB issues are?

Also Jimmy, I know you don't monitor here very often, as you are mostly out of the hackintosh world, but I'd like to
know what problems you had with bluetooth? I was thinking about getting a bluetooth USB Dongle, and I'd like to
know what issues to look for.

I had tried this installation a while back on an old drive, and it worked, but the drive crashed about a week later. When I emailed Jimmy about it working, He suggested I go to kexts.com and update the kexts provided in his package. I started to do that tonight, and downloaded the VooDooHDA 2.7.2 Kext, and installed it, but it did not work, No sound from any program, and a hissing sound from the audio and a strange grating noise when I moved the volume slider.
Do I need to edit something in the KEXT? Could some of you that are using this kext with Snow tell me what version
you are using?

At any rate I have unplugged the drive from the USB and plugged it in to a SATA port on my computer, and if it keeps working I will Clone it over to the boot partition on my 1tb main drive.

About the time I get this all working Lion will come out and it will be time to start all over. :o

Thanks

Chuck E.

Hello, happy new year!

Well, VooDooHDA is the best .kext for sound, be sure to have the vanilla AppleHDA and no other enablers installed,
make a

kextutil /System/Library/Extensions/TheKextYouWantToCheck.kext

and check if it is the right one for your system.

Some kexts provided are for 64bit architecture, thus won't work.




Some bluetooth dongs won't work with Snow, but it depends on the usb controllers, not sure why, p5k users seem to be fine with it.


People should be just fine using the directions I posted before, that are in theory the same used to installing 10.5.xx versions using Vanilla installs.


Hope it helps :o

Hi Jimmy,

I'm trying to install SL on my Asus p5k SE/EPU with the rebel EFi as you wrote earlier but i can't get past the 'no smoking' sign when the retail SL is starting after i inserted it.

I've read the Rebel EFI needs AHCI but my bios doesn't support it. I read an older bios does but is this why i can't get past the 'no smoking' sign?

Txs!
