  1. Tried what you said, I couldn't even get to the installer. Once it loads everything, the screen goes black and the monitor goes to power saver mode. When I just booted to the iAtkos CD and went from there, I could at least install the OS, but couldn't get the OS to boot. Any Ideas? edit--just got the installer to work with the retail version of mac OSX...lets see how things go from here. As for flags, I think I used rd(0,0)/Extra/modbin_kernel -force64 maxmem=4096 busratio=20 -v -f FINALLY!!! Got it to boot using -force64 maxmem=4096 busratio=20 -v -f. It did install my ethernet drivers, but apparently it did not recognize them, or they are incompatible with my network chip, so that is my first step, is getting internet to work. Sound kinda works, but I'm not going to worry about that right now.
  2. The quoopz kernel is part of the iatkos install DVD, and I'm super close to getting it to work. I guess I will try another boot loader and see what happens, but I have to download a retail DVD first, which will take most of the day with my internet : / edit: Plus, on the list with the amd working builds, only one person got the fx-8350 to work, and he has an ATI card. I have an Nvidia gtx 295, which has 2 gpu's on the one card, so I don't know how mac osx is going to handle the card. And I'm not willing to buy another video card just to make a working hackintosh.
  3. Well, I changed to the anval loader, quoopz kernel, and the Nvidia drivers were installed, and it causes my system to crash whether GE is a Yes or No. Will keep you updated. I don't know what my memory problem is, or if that is the problem. I am not using Multi - beast, nor did I use it since it wouldn't work on my current laptop. Iaktos does install, I guess my problem is finding the magic mix to get everything to work, as per usual. Are there other flags that other people have used to get it to work? edit--here is the latest kernel panic.
  4. Sorry I wasn't super clear on what I did with the installer. I reinstalled MacOSX with the RC5 loader, quoopz 10.3.0, and the default patches minus the sound. For boot flags, I use " cpus=1 busratio=20 npci=0x2000 maxmem=4096 PCIRootUID=1/0 -v -f". Few things--With the RootUID set to one, it makes my system almost immediately crash when it starts to load Mac OSX (Yes, I am trying to get it to boot for the first time ever). With it set to 0, it makes it almost to the screen after all the loading, black screen then reboot. That was when the Audio Driver would kick in, but the OS failed to load, causing a reset. When I try -x for safe mode, I get another different kernel panic. I can get into single user mode( -s ) but not too sure what to do from there. If I can get this all to work, I would be so happy to make a video since the FX series is still kinda new to the whole OSX86 thing, in a sense..Sure some people have gotten it to work with their FX, but I dont have the same hardware as them. Also, what does the npci=0x2000 thing do? p.s. In the picture, if you cannot see what the panic is, it is a "pmap_steal_memory"@........Again, IMO it is hard to read what it says..so if you need me to try to lower the brightness, lmk
  5. This may be a noobish question, but how do I do that..? Also, I guess I should have said that I am using the iATKOS_S3_version2.iso which is the modified Snow Leopard.
  6. Ok so I got the installer to work-Horray!!! However, after it is installed, it starts to load everything, and the furthest I got was it started the sound service (loud pop with speakers) and then black screen and reset. I've been reinstalling trying different options, but no luck. Sometimes I get a kernel panic with the com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFAMILY, which I think means it has to do with my videocard? I do have a old PCI sound card in my computer, but could that be affecting my startup? As for boot flags, I have to use "cpus=1 busratio=20 maxmem=4096 -v -f" and it starts the installer just fine. Not so much with the actual OS. If I can get it so the audio pops again, I will let you know what options I have enabled to get it that far. i know I am using the quoopz 10.3.0 kernel and the RC5 bootloader with some msc. drivers. Edit: I have a picture of the kernel panic for anyone that is interested in helping. If you need it so it isn't as bright, let me know.
  7. I will definitely try this sometime today, however I think I will have some questions along the way. In your post above, what does ML and SL stand for? I keep seeing these when I do google searches, and I am curios what they mean. I am currently using my front port usb for my usb stick, so 3.0 shouldn't be an issue, I think. The gtx 295 is a single card, but with 2 PCB's on it. Technically it is 1 card, but I think it still counts as SLI..? Is there a way to make it only use one of the 2 GPU's?
  8. Hello-- I have tried several times to get 10.8 to work on my machine My specs are: Asus sabertooth R2.0 AMD FX-8350 4.0 ghz 8gb Ram GTX 295 nVidia dual GPU card I am using the amd_kernel instead of the stock mach_kernel, along with the flag arch=x86_64, -x -v. It starts loading all the files, then it stops with a "log" of what it did. I hit Q to exit the viewer, and the screen goes black and my computer resets. I have read that the kernels do not like nvidia cards, and to use the flag graphicsenabler=no, but that doesn't do anything either. I have gotten a screen that said "system setup in nanoseconds", but it just sits there. Above it says panic(kernel) with some hexadecimal, but nothing specific, and I've only been able to get that screen twice in my troubles. Should I try 10.7 or 10.6? Any other advice on what I should do?
