  1. Need some help with install

    Thanks. This finally worked for me. The previous guide is nice doing it manually but there are some steps in there for chameleon that doesn't work for Yosemite like opening the build essentials with pacifist and copying mach kernel. It might also be the version of chameleon used in that guide. Chameleon would boot but the install would not. Glad the v4 guide worked for me. I was also able to update to 10.1 and just move Apple Intel cpu kexts for it to boot again.
  2. Need some help with install

    Tried the guide there and the install works with clover but it creates another boot partition in my bios. I prefer chameleon but that method would not boot the installer for me.
  3. Need some help with install

    Thanks, I do have my system specs inside my sig..they are greyed out for some reason. I will definately check the guides here.
  4. Need some help with install

    Yea I have mavericks fully working on an ssd by now. Is there an mbr patch I can use successfully on a partitioned ntfs drive to test the install first before formatting my mavericks ssd to do a fresh install? Thanks for the info too.
  5. I currently am running Mavericks on my pc with these specs: Asrock Extreme3 gen3 core i5 2500k ATI 7970Ghz Realtek RTL81..kext ALC 892 AUdio I want to install or upgrade to Yosemite..preferable fresh install if I can get the correct kexts working for Audio and internet. I noticed there are two install USB guide methods here. Which one is preferable? Also for my kexts does anyone know which ones I need for Yosemite? I installed the Beta a long time ago and I noticed the same kexts did not work.
  6. I've been thinking about picking up a used Macbook pro 13". I used to have a 15" pro model in 2011 but had to sell it at one point to help my mother out with some bills. I'm not sure what the going rate should be for a 2010 or 2011 model should be. I've seen them for as much as $800 on ebay and craigslist in my area. I already have a working hackingtosh, 100% running on an ssd in this desktop. I want to do some android/web development and I found out that I spend more time in OSX working on my websites than I did on the windows partition. Plus I have not had a laptop in a long time and figured a macbook would be nice to have. I don't know if the 2.3ghz core i5 or 2.4 makes a big difference. I certainly don't want a core 2 duo. Whatever I buy I will be putting in a 256gb SSD and 8GB of ram anyway. So I'm looking for some suggestions and help on what I should buy.
  7. Its up to you Mysticus, I can't even boot into 10.5.6 because of some weird error: [HCIController][configurePM]: power parent ready after 1 tries. I would rather wait for the 10.5.7 update while I try to solve this issue. Or which ever is easier for you.
  8. Any one ever got the HCI error I was talking about above? Its every weird but I don't know how it can be fixed. I already deleted the AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement kext yet I still can not even boot into 10.5.6 with safe mode or single user. I think it may also be related to ACPI drivers that the 10.5.6 update installs. Oh and I hear that mysticus C will make update patches for 10.5.6 soon?
  9. [GUIDE] Leopard on an XPS 1330/1530

    Wingrun, I downloaded that as well, so I can try to fix my sleep, its not specific for m1330 is it?
  10. [GUIDE] Leopard on an XPS 1330/1530

    Sleep doesn't really work on the m1330/1530. Neither does shutdown or restart. You can try Superhai's Kexts and see if there is any difference. The first page of this guide should have the links. As for the USB, mine never worked but you can try OSX86 tools and click detect hard ware and download only the USB drivers. I noticed that was available but Im not sure if it works. There is also a post just for USB problems called "USB not mounting/only after restart."
  11. Alright, thank's talisman..I read up on some unix coding and I still have the partition there so i will do that now and see what happens. But another error at the top in yellow says that it failed to load AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext. But nonetheless I will try what you stated first. EDIT: I deleted the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from my hard drive using terminal and now the yellow error when it boots is gone. But the OS still does not load with this as the last line still: [HCIController][configurePM] power parent ready after 1 tries
  12. I installed again iatkos 4i with only stock files and updated to 10.5.5. I then followed wingrun's guide to update to 10.5.6 but after I update the computer boots up and it does not load the OS any more, neither does it restart twice as it should after an update. I booted in verbose mode to see the problem and it stops loading after this line: [HCIController][configurePM] power parent ready after 1 tries I can not boot using safe mode or single user mode either because the same error. Anyone know what this is?
  13. Is console.app the same as the terminal? Because it just lists some numbers next to the USB drivers. The USB devices do not show up on the desktop when plugged in although they do light up, for example my cruzer 4gb stick will light up when plugged in but nothing shows in osx.
  14. [GUIDE] Leopard on an XPS 1330/1530

    In that case then I will check and see if it has a disabler, if not then I will remove the powermanagement kext. In Iatkos 4i there was no choice for removing this kext or installing a disabler but I think those get installed anyway when you update. Also, USB drives do not work for me still after doing all of this. I need to first install once with a complete update to 10.5.6 before tackling the USB issue.
