Hi everyone, I haven't messed around with Hackintosh since the early days of the first few kernel hacks. Using OS X encouraged me to go out and buy a Mac, but unfortunately my Macbook Pro died on me a few weeks ago and I can't afford another right now
Currently I am trying to get SL installed on my old Intel DG965WH with C2D. I have tried everything I can think of, but I just cannot seem to get it running.
1. Tried this guide http://tonymacx86.bl...ac-os-x-on.html. Double kernel panic during installer load. Didn't spend much time with this one. Used a legally purchased SL retail disc.
2. Tried a leohazard disc. After installing from a USB optical drive rather than my internal IDE, I was able to get the installer to pull up and it seemed to install successfully. I wasn't sure what kexts to install - I've tried everywhere from all to none, and everywhere in between. Even though I install the bootloader from the customize options, it still won't boot by itself (No boot device). I tried booting with the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] disc, and it starts to load but then I get an "EBIOS Read Error: 0x01"
3. Finally, tried Protocol-X's iPortable OS X. First boot it complained about ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext and panicked. I removed this and rebuilt the cache, and it booted extremely slowly (Said waiting on DSMOS), but finally i got to my registration screen. Did all that, and then it resulted in just a blue screen with mouse cursor.
I've spent a few days on this. I'm extremely patient and enjoy hacking around, but I'm also practical and don't want to waste my time. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what I should be doing? A lot of the guides require a Mac, but obviously since mine is dead the only one I have is an old iMac G3 running 10.3. Sorry for tl;dr
Sorry, I should point out my full specs:
Intel DG965WH - 965 chipset, ICH8
Core2Duo 1.8 E6300
8GB RAM (only 2GB in while doing this work)
I too having the same issue as yourself. I'm hoping someone could please reply to this thread as I've been on this issue for almost a year!
