    Mountain Lion Geforce 7500 LE

    Then I'll just stick with Lion for now I guess
  2. I have two HP Pavillions m7680.nl-a and in one I've replaced my graphics card with a Geforce 210. That computer is running on Mountain Lion without any issues. The other one is equipped with a Geforce 7500 and the installation goes fine, it boots in safe mode, but will not boot in normal mode. It asks for a reset. When I try to boot with -v it gives the screen included in the attachment. As you can see I've tried to install NVEnabler64.kext and I've put the EFI string in org.chameleon.Boot.plist and set GE=Y as well in safe mode. Does anyone have any clue how this could be solved?
  3. I've used myHack to create a bootable Mountain Lion installer and installed it on my Lion drive without erasing it. Now I'm not able to boot up my Hackintosh. I just get: boot0: GPT boot0: test boot0: test boot0: done and after that it just stops. When I use the installer USB and select my first harddrive it does boot into Mountain Lion after removing VoodooHDA.kext. So it has nothing to do with the installation itself. I've tried to reinstall Chameleon several times, but that doesn't do the trick. To be precise when installing Lion I configured software RAID 0 using the installer. Has anyone got a clue, because I would really love to be able to boot my machine without using a USB drive.
  4. I have installed Snow Leopard on a Lenovo 3000 N200, but I have a huge problem. My CPU temperature is extremely high, around 98 C and the notebook itself is boiling hot. The fan doesn't start working and after a while my system gets stuck and asks me to push the restart button. I have tried to remove the AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext and I have installed the IntelSpeedstepper-kext, but that doesn't seem to help. I have also tried to patch the dsdt with dsdt patcher, but that doesn't help either. It's also strange that when I click About this Mac is see that it's a Unknown 1.93GHz processor, but in fact it is a Intel Pentium Dual T2390 @ 1.86GHz. The chipset is ICH-8. Any suggestions, because it's really annoying, because the temperature rises from 43 C to 98 C in like 10 minutes, so I can't really work with it now, unless I want to reboot every 5 minutes.

    [SL] BCM4315

    Ubuntu shows it as a Broadcom 4312, with a Foxconn subsystem vendor id(0x105b). I wanted to try to rebrand it, but ubuntu wouldn't allow me to do so, I got stuck at the following line: cd && cat $SSB_SPROM > ssb_sprom_copy Is there maybe another way to rebrand the card?

    [SL] BCM4315

    I've also tried to install PCIFix.kext, the Chun-nan's IOPCCardFamily.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext. I did try to use the Leopard 10.5.6 IO80211Family.kext, but that didn't work either, it didn't make the system unusable though. I really can't stand it, because of what I've read, it doesn't seem to be a too difficult card to get to work! And I really don't understand why it does work on Leopard and not on Snow Leopard.

    [SL] BCM4315

    I installed Snow Leopard Retail yesterday with the NetbookBootMaker. I have been spending some hours now to find a solution for my Wifi which is a Broadcom BCM4315 chipset. I've tried the bcm43xx_enabler_0.5.3.sh script, but the only change I saw was an icon in my menubar and when I clicked on it I had a pull down menu with Network Controller, which was gray and Power off Card. When I go to System Profiler and then look at PCI Cards it says Other Netwrok Controller and no driver installed. The vendor ID and device ID are correct they are 14e4 and 4315 respectively. When I go to Network it says 'No information found.' When I run kextstat I can see the following lines: 74 1 0x32537000 0x24000 0x23000 com.apple.iokit.IO80211Family (300.20) <73 7 5 4 3 1> 75 0 0x327c8000 0x1a8000 0x1a7000 com.apple.driver.AirPortBrcm43xx (410.91.20) <74 73 13 7 5 4 3 1> Any suggestions?

    [Solved!] Packard Bell Dot.s

    Problem solved! I tried to restore the .iso image again and strangely my problems were solved. So I've got Snow Leopard running just fine, I only have to find some hardware solutions.
  9. I have bought a Packard Bell dot.s last week and I was trying to install Mac OSX. I thought well lets install Snow Leopard. So I've downloaded the Snow Leopard iso and I suppose it's the 10.6.2 retail version, but I'm not sure about that. The reason I think it's the 10.6.2 version is that when I tried to boot the installation from a external harddisk firstly I had a kernel panic, which told me my CPU wasn't supported and that's not really surprising since it's an Intel Atom CPU, which has been banned by Apple since version 10.6.2. Secondly I've tried to replace the mach_kernel file with one I've found on the internet, this one: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...197020&st=0, to be specific. I've tried to boot off my external harddisk again, and the first problem was solved, but I've got myself a new one. I had a kernel panic, with the warning that I was having a kernel mis-match. Some further information: * I have used the NetbookBootMaker to make the harddisk bootable * I have used iAtkos v1.5(I guess) 10.5.5 on another pc to restore the ISO image to the disk * The Packard Bell Dot.s is identical to the Acer Aspire One D250 I hope this explanation has been good enough to give me some suggestions how to solve my problem.

    Compaq NC6000

    Is there really no solution, because I've read that the HP/Compaq NC6000 is an ideal notebook for osx86, so it really bothers me that I don't seem to succeed in installing Mac OSX on that laptop, because I've had no troubles at all with some more tricky notebooks, e.g. a notebook with a Radeon Xpress 200M. And to be a bit more clear perhaps, I prefer to install Leopard on that laptop, but I've tried Tiger as well, because it just didn't seem possible, but I'm having the same problems with Tiger, so that's also the reason why I posted it here.

    Compaq NC6000

    A friend of mine asked me to install Mac OS X on an old laptop, so I've tried many times and I just seems impossible, or I'm really missing something. So far I've tried iAtkos 10.5.5, iPC 10.5.6 and also uphuck 1.4i 10.4.9, but I haven't got any luck yet. I am able to boot the installation discs, although it takes quite some time, like almost half an hour, I'm also able to install Mac OS, which also takes ages, except for uphuck. And with uphuck and iPC after installation the laptop gets stuck at 'Using xxxx buffer headers and xxxx cluster IO buffer headers' With iAtkos I had some more luck with booting, it hang at 'Mdnsresponder couldn't read local hostname'. So so far no real luck. I've tried all possible combinations of kexts, but it just doesn't seem to work. The laptop has a ICH4 chipset so I've tried the ICH kexts and the PIIXAta kexts, but I just can't get it working. Could someone please give a hand. I must appologize for some horrible English sentences, but English isn't my mothertongue unfortunately. I do have some experience with OSX86, but I'm not really an insider, so could you please take that into consideration giving possible solutions?
