Scroll below Post-Installation Instructions for 10.5.2 update info!
Here's my system specs
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
2GB DDRII 667MHz SDRAM
nVidia GeForce 7600GS
WD SATA HDD
Here's what you need that you may not already have:
Kalyway 10.5.1 iso, burned to a DVD
PC EFI files
External DVD Drive (for the installation of OS X, if you do not have a SATA drive)
A flash drive (USB key, thumb drive, whatever you want to call it)
External Hard Drive (optional for Time Machine)
A backup of ALL YOUR DATA!!!
***BEFORE YOU BEGIN THE INSTALLATION PROCESS***
1. Burn your Kalyway 10.5.1 iso, lower speeds are preferred
2. Format your flash drive FAT16 if it isn't already, give it a simple name that you can remember, and copy the PC EFI folder to it (All terminal commands given will be for PC_EFI_v8)
1. plug in your external DVD drive, press F8 at the BIOS screen to go to the boot options. Select your external DVD drive, press enter
2.press F8 again when it says press F8 for boot options (this is right before darwin loads), type -vanilla
3.The thing will load. You might be stuck at the loading darwin screen for a while, I had to wait 25 minutes to get to the installation screens, so be patient.
4.Once you are at the install screens, choose your language...blah blah blah...all the usual stuff.
5. When you get to the choose destination part, go up to the menu bar, and choose Disk Utility
6. Select your HDD, it may appear as an external one, but that's ok, just ignore that for now.
7. Now go to partition, and under volume scheme, select what you want. I chose 1 because it is my only OS.
8. Now go to the bottom (to the right but the + and - buttons), there, you will see a options button, click it, and select GUID.
9. Click format drive. If it says resource busy and can't format, look on the 4th button on the top bar with all the icons. Make sure the volume is mounted!
10. Close disk utility
11. Plug in your USB key
12. go to utilities, and then system profiler
13. On the left, select Serial-ATA
14. Find the volume you are looking for, on the 5th line under the volume, it should say BSD name, in the form of disk0s2
15. Remember that, and close system profiler.
16. Launch terminal
17. The following are terminal commands, do not mistype them.
diskutil unmount disk0s2 cd /Volumes/123/PC_EFI_v80 ./startupfiletool /dev/rdisk0s2 ./boot_v8 dd if=./guid/boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2 bs=512 count=1 dd if=./guid/boot0 of=/dev/disk0 bs=400 count=1
the above code assumes that target volume is disk0s2, and you are using PC EFI v8, if you are not, replace these with the appropriate words.
18. Quit terminal
19. Select the volume that we've been working on in installer.
20. Click customize, under bootloaders EFI, unselect all of them!
21. Select all under vanilla_kernel_ACPIPlatform
22.Select the drivers for your system.
23. Click install
24. Now you have a working installation of Leopard! Follow the post install instructions if you want.
***POST INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS***
1.Ethernet should work without patching
2.Video acceleration will depend on your gfx card and the drive you chose
3.If you want a unmodded system, get Laik's virginizer
3. To get sound working, download and install here (only line out, no input, sorry )
5. You may have to choose the appropriate resolution and color profile for your monitor.
6. To fix the problem with Macintosh HD being recognized as a external HD
7. Extract files
8. move them to /System/Library/Extensions
9. Open terminal
sudo -s type password cd /System/Library/Extensions chown -R root:wheel AppleAHCIPort.kext chmod -R 755 AppleAHCIPort.kext chown -R root:wheel IOAHCIFamily.kext chmod -R 755 IOAHCIFamily.kext chown -R root:wheel IOATAFamily.kext chmod -R 755 IOATAFamily.kext
Now go to /System/Library and delete Extensions.mkext
reboot and the drive should appear as internal!
For this, you will need kalyway_10.5.2_kernels.mpkg.zip and kalyway_hack_10.5.2ComboUpdate from a certain bay of pirates...
Remember, it's never a bad idea to back up your /System/Library/Extensions Folder. Also back up any important files you many have!
1. Extract kalyway_hack_10.5.2ComboUpdate, run the installer.
2. When prompted for restart, do not press restart, instead, start Disk Utility
3. Find Macintosh HD (or whatever drive you installed Leopard on), and press repair permissions
4. After permissions repair is complete, close disk utility and press restart
5. The system will reboot, then be stuck at the Apple+Gear. The gear will spin aprox 40 times before the system restarts itself.
6. The system will boot, then the screen is going to go black. This will last aprox 3 mins. Be patient and do something else while you wait.
7. You will see your login screen. Log in as normal.
8. Extract kalyway_10.5.2_kernels.mpkg.zip, run the installer.
9. Depending on your CPU, choose the appropriate kernel. I have a Core 2 Duo. I chose Vanilla
10. Wait till the installer finishes, when it does, open disk utilities and repair permissions.
12. On first restart, you might see a kernel panic (where the screen goes dark and asks you to hold down the power button). This is normal, just do what it says. It should not happen again.
Post Installation Instructions
Depending on your graphics card, you may want to run the Leopard Graphics Update from software update.
I have a nVidia GeForce 760GS (256MB) from MSI. Everything works fine after the update.
Go to the advanced tab of your BIOS. Disable USB Legacy support, now your front ports should also work.
