In Topic: (How To)Hazards 10.6.2 on MSI 770-C45 / Phenom ii 965 / ATI 4650

27 October 2010 - 10:46 PM

I solved my last issue, but I have question about the kernel, what kernel we can take?, and we can put both upgrades(10.6.1 & 10.6.2 combo) ? because I have an issue now, after installing leopard, the boot starts (chameleon) but the aple on a gray screen stay sticky, a metalized apple.....I dont know what to do....thanks 4 reading

Why are you asking me about upgrades to 10.6.1 & 10.6.2 combo?.. if you are using the Distro of my instruction(as my thread title says Hazard 10.6.2)... its a direct install of 10.6.2 - Distro is named exactly like this: Snow Leopard Client Server 10.6.2 SSE2/SSE3 Intel AMD by Hazard

If you are not using that distro.. I cannot really help you out... since its obvious my thread is about users using that exact distro.... because it includes all the necessary files that you will need for our motherboard/cpu for 10.6.2(The distro includes necessary modified 10.6.2 kexts).

But since you ask about kernel....
AnV 10.2.0 / system kext

not only that you will require to need all this below.. so that pretty much the OS to work with our setups

Chameleon RC3 PC EFI 10.5
AMD patch
Realtek R1000
Legacy AHCI Sata
IOATAFamily Fix
Orange Icon
About My Mac Fix

Since you are doing a very different way of installing Snow compared to using the Distro I instructed.... it seems you were installing 10.6.0 .... well to upgrade to 10.6.2... you will only need to installing the 10.6.2 Combo download from apple.... but before upgrading do exactly like i mentioned on one of the replies of this thread for upgrading to 10.6.3(which will work as well for upgrading to any: 10.6.1, 10.6.2, 10.6.3 & 10.6.4). Thsi below is the copy of my reply to another user which worked for him:

Anyways to upgrade to 10.6.3 is quite easy... (As long as you didn't add any extra special kexts inside S/L/E, I didn't needed to save any kext, my upgrade to 10.6.3 went 100% perfect)) you will need to first back up your current: mach_kernel

Open: Terminal
sudo su
cp /mach_kernel /mach_kernel.bak

Now run the whole Apple Updates... then after Updates when it reboots...
Add to your boot arguments: mach_kernel.bak
Here is an Example: -v mach_kernel.bak
*If it doesn't work.. try booting with this: -v /mach_kernel.bak

If you manage to boot your 10.6.3 upgrade into the Desktop, then you will need to backup the new mach_kernel and replace back your old mach_kernel

Open: Terminal
sudo su
cp /mach_kernel /mach_kernel1063.bak
mv /mach_kernel.bak /mach_kernel

Then restart to test if it worked(just boot as you regularly do, no need for the boot argument I mentioned before)
If it went fine, perfect... if not :/ I just mentioned here what worked for me.

Hi, problems here, look... I have the same MoBo, but an 955 phenomII x4, 2Gb 1333 DDR3, GT240 GPU, hard drive and dvd-rom both sata, when darwin is loading (after the arguments), the pc goes to restart, and I've tried for 5 times, whit the arguments that you said, and another arguments that I found, whitout any solve, what can I do, I set up the bios in the same way that you said in this post.....I've done everything you said....please, give me some help. thanks for reading me.

Are you sure you are using the correct Hazard Distro?
You must use this one exactly(or else it won't work): Snow Leopard Client Server 10.6.2 SSE2/SSE3 Intel AMD by Hazard

it should work with no issues at all.. since my settings on installing customize options & booting arguments work for any AMD CPU setups(i have even tested with my own CPU on 4 different AMD motherboards using my same selections & they all worked). And by the way I have used the same method on someone who had your same cpu 955 C3, mobo & 2gb of ram.. only difference was he had an ATI 5770 as graphic card.

The same arguments I provided according to my setup will work for you as well.. now.... I have no clue about your Nvidia card.. I haven't tested yours sorry... but it should work with no issues I assume - I tested a 9800GTX+ & a 250 both worked out of the box.... if QnE is not working.. just follow the part in my guide where i mention this:

Afterwards just double click: com.appleBoot.plist
Make changes similar to this

well inside there just add this string before </dict>:


You may try as well as booting argument adding: -x -v busratio=20
By the way busratio=20.... you may change the number.. try lower numbers 19, 18, 17.. etc just keep testing until one works ---- that busratio thing is what makes our AMD Quadcores work to boot

maybe your burned copy of the Distro didn't burn properly... try using on Windows IMGburn(its freeware) & burn the downloaded ISO on the lowest burning speed(I'd suggest 1x or 2x speeds).

I'm sorry I can't be much help right now.. I currently do not have Snow installed in my computer, I needed the hard drive :/ .. I'm just writing according to my experiences of using this distro which works perfectly for many AMD & Intel setups.

I've just realized... my thread was DOUBLE POSTED on the tutorials on this forum


In Topic: getting QE working on Radeon HD4650

29 September 2010 - 11:12 PM

alright I guess (almost) everything is working now. I used kext from another thread and included my device/vendor id, redid permissions and now I can choose between different resolutions but still cant use the Quartz Engine and CL (when I start front row it only shows a black screen). anybody up for some solutions?

here is what I did:
I removed the following kexts installed the same kexts (different versions) again with kext helper

now I have the solution changable, system profiler still recognizes my card as a Radeon 4600 but now with its 1024 MB RAM (using VGA Output) but still no QE and CL. osx86tools does not work correctly to enable it.

I can assure you that everything you are doing is a bit way too techy & the solution is quite simpler

I'd say restart everything again.. install clean & upgrade to 10.6.4 do everything as you did(for all your other hardwares to work) but do not touch anything for the video

You would resolve all your issues if you simply went to netkas.org (they are the ones who provide all these many famous kext fixes)... then find their IRC channel address... and inside that IRC (you must have a IRC chat app) there is a Chat Room of HD 4650 - those users in there will help you resolve it - they will give you the necessary files & what to do & also tell you what works and what does not work

I wished I could have posted my solution, but I upgraded to CF 5770's & never backed up what i did for the 4650 to work on 10.6.4

*Forgot to say yes you do need Chameleon RC4

Thanks. I fixed it with this: http://leohazard.com...php?f=14&t=2640
No idea what it does, but the installer is working now (so far ;) ) oh, and my HDD is SATA

Btw: IIRC the 770-G45 is the same as the C45, but different (tweaked?) bios

Well good you managed on fixing it... odd you needed a bootcd to boot hazards distro... are you sure you downloaded the correct Hazards Distro "Snow Leopard Client Server 10.6.2 SSE2/SSE3 Intel AMD by Hazard"?
Because on our motherboard "C45" we have no issues booting that dvd distro.... so that means there are other differences its nto only the *Bios

• 2 PCI Express x1 slots

• Atheros® AR8131M supports Gigabit LAN
- Supports 10Mb/s, 100Mb/s and 1000Mb/s

notice its pretty different... only chipset stayed the same.... I have no clue what do you need for Ethernet Lan to have it working since its not the same as ours..... Audio at least it may work with what i provide(line out on rear)

but at least the rest of the choices in customize will work fine for you

Yep. Although I am using IDE dvd drives, which might be the problem. I'm gonna try it with a USB one right now.

I tried those, and also cpus=1 also.

DVD being a USB should work... hopefully your hard drive is SATA... if not you will need to change to sata everything.... I've noticed Snow is not friendly with IDE

Oh re-read my last reply I updated a little.. included info for your video card(since 10.6.2 is not friendly to 5XXX series).. so that you can get it fully working later on.. when you have managed to get it installed booting in the desktop
