  1. Enable AHCI and that should be it. edit: enable native mode on sata drives Then install iATKOS 10.5.7 and have everything working. During installation pick chameleon v2, voodoo 10.5.7 kernel, OHR and AHCI patch, remove troublesome drivers option (dunno if needed), don't install RT73 wireless drivers because you'll probably get kernel panic.
  2. iATKOS v4i upgrade to 10.5.5

    No. With combo, you can update from lets say 10.5.2 to 10.5.5 in one go but with delta, you must update from 10.5.4 to 10.5.5, only one version jump per update.
  3. iATKOS v4i upgrade to 10.5.5

    Use vanilla kernel during installation and if it worked, install delta update, not combo. Also, you only have to run this part to update... sudo -s *type password* while sleep 1; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext; done Go back to your terminal and press Control C to end the script , restart
  4. G94(9600gt) is fully supported by new mbp drivers!

    @ TD_D: I'm glad it worked
  5. Need help QUICK!

    I had mine cured by disabling firewire in bios. Dunno what is the connection between firewire and that error but it went away... Edit: I got that error when updating with with combo update and with disabling firewire error went away but there were other problems with combo update so I had to use delta...
  6. You can make a copy of MBR with dd and restore it later. Search forum...
  7. kext = kernel extension , just like kernel modules on linux. You can load the and unload manually, just like on linux (kextload == modprobe) etc. You will probably need some kexts to make particular piece of hardware to work.

    @ TD_D: I was going the same route as you with kaly but couldn't get past 10.5.3 update so I'm running lastest iATKOS with 10.5.5 update and vanilla kernel. I'd suggest you to try with iATKOS, last being 2.6 GB, so it takes half the kaly install time and "it just works" everytime for me.
  9. Some questions before installing..

    Search the forum for your hardware and you'll find out pretty fast what works and what doesn't. No one can give you exact answer so the best way to see if you can get it to work is to try. If you want "vanilla" install, you have to use 123 method. That's closest you'll get to "pure" os x. The other is iATKOS, Kaly, JaS distros which are hacked and support pretty big chunk of hardware. I recommend you to start with iAtkos (because I found it to work best for me), and if you get everything to work, try with 123 and retail os x.
  10. iAtkos (Problem!)

    If you have windows installed, format partition or drive you plan to install os x in fat32 and enable ahci in BIOS.
  11. C/P from another thread: 1. Boot off OSX dvd disc in single user mode (press F8 and type -s) 2. At single user prompt fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 ≤- where rdiskX is disk where osx is installed flag 1 update write quit or you could boot leo using dvd and fix it in the same way from terminal
  12. As spammshield said, you need to install right SATA drivers during install. If you're unsure which, just check all SATA drivers.

    @TD_D: Which distro are you using?
