In Topic: 10.5.4 installed on HP D530 SFF

30 September 2008 - 06:14 AM

Hi there,

Got it! I set the options as you said and it works...!

Thanks for the help!

I did manage to bugger it up by installing the PS2Fix patch, but I'll just do a new install and use a USB Mouse/KB from now on...

Oh, and these settings also work for a Compaq Evo 510...




You must select the correct settings under the customize options in the installer...if you just click install it wont work as it will install components that aren't compatible with this computer..


Select STAGEXNU kernal

If you dont then it wont work..I know Ive tried it..this is all the help i can give you im afraid...good luck!

In Topic: Updated: PS/2 Fix Installer for ANY version of Leopard

I have the same issue:

Installed JaS 10.5.4 on my Compaq Evo 510 (installed with a PS/2 keyboard and mouse connected). Then once OSX booted for the first time I had to attach a (borrowed!) USB keyboard and mouse. Then I got into OSX and all was fine.

I downloaded and installed the PS2Fix1054 package and all went well.

Then I rebooted and swapped the USB mouse/keboard for the old PS/2 ones, now when I restart I get to the grey screen with the Apple-logo and the 'spinning' counter-icon and that's it - doesn't boot any further than that.

I've tried reconnecting the USB mouse and keyboard, but that doesn't help.

I also tried using the -x boot option during the Darwin startup, with no luck.

Is there any way I can remove PS2Fix and get back to a working OSX install?

I'd had to have fubarred my system so quickly!

Any comments or help greatly appreciated!



My Jas OSX 10.5.4 is not booting after installing this! :shock: Need help!!

Hi James,

Well, I d/l JaS 10.5.4 and it all installed like a dream - not a single warning error message...

But once I reboot (after the install) Darwin seems to crash (annoyingly!) at pretty much the same place as it did when trying to install leo4all 10.5.4...

Since the install went fine (unlike leo4all, which as I said never got past teh first few lines when the DVD booted!) I'm guessing that I need to change/set some of the boot options... The same as yours?

But I'm completely at a loss of how to do this.

Where do I need to go to set the correct boot options for my HP D530?

<edit> Oh dear, do I need to set certain options as part of the install process? I didn't do this as it seemed to install fine without any issues, it's just that now (once it's installed) it fails to boot - resets all the time... So do I need to reinstall Jas 10.5.4?

Thanks for you time, it's really appreciated!

Hi James(?),

I've tried leo4allv3 on my HP D530 with no luck - get the constant reboot loop when the bootloader tries to load the kernel extensions... Was driving me batty!

So you reckon the jas 10.5.4 distro is the way to go?

Did you do a clean install on your D530 or did you upgrade from 10.4.8?

I'm a newbie and thjis is my first attempt at OSx86!



Hi All, After my crash course on hackintosh..I've managed to successfully install jas 10.4.8, iATKOSv1.0ir2 (needed dvd to boot)
And last night got jas 10.5.4 working with the stagexnu kernal..
Little question..on first boot after installation in loads as far as the light grey screen with working/active cursor that i can move around.
The way I solved it was to reboot..hit f8 and booted with rd=rdisk0s1..

It now booted into 10.5.4 fine and has booted straight from the hdd ever since without the need to enter rd=rdisk0s1..

So can someone explain to me what rd=rdisk0s1 did? Im pleased it worked and fixed it but I can't work out how it solved the prob..

If anyone is interested the settings for jas 10.5.4 for a hp d530

Intel ich (device)
Smircon driver

Works nice!!

thanks again..

In Topic: leo4allv3 (10.5.2) install constantly resets after first few steps

26 September 2008 - 05:21 AM

additional info: It appears that it fails at the following step:

"Loading HFS+ file : [System/Library/Extensions.mkext] from 422d690"

It displays this line (twice), then the small rotating "/" appears for a few seconds, then the machine resets.

I've also just tried the same DVD on an IBM Thinkpad R51 and it gets to the OSX installer GUI with only the odd warning message, so the DVD appears to be fine...

It seems that this is a reasonably frequent error, but I've yet to find any suggestions or solutions.

Are there any boot flags I can try?
