  1. Hi,AROBASEFR Can you please upload the Boot CD and Lizard.app to other mirrors like rapidshare or somewhere else? My ISP has block those media-fire sites... Thanks! Z.A.
  2. Hi, MAJ Thanks for your hard work! PC EFI v10.3 is out by netkas, can someone comfirm it workingin in our mobos? If installed 10.2, shall we need some extra work to make it boot SL (change com.apple.boot.plist, delete kexts etc.)? regards, Z.A.
  3. Hi, MAJ Thanks for your reply! Yes,the Permissions are wrong, and when I tried to reinstall BSD.pkg I either got a KP or after installation my account became "Standard" and there is no way to get sudo (Not in sudoers list) or change my account type. After several fresh reinstallations, can you tell me how to get right Permissions set? I even tried to boot PreBoot CD w/o luck to see the retail DVD in the boot menu... regards,
  4. Hey, I'm just curious that I see those Permissions differ from my Leo System, so I output it via Terminal. Can someone confirm that my system permissions are correct? I can NOT repair permissions via diskutil No packages can be found for this disk Error: -9900: No installer packages can be found for this disk Underlying error: 20: POSIX reports: Not a directory my corrent permission output: drwxrwxr-x+ 35 root admin 1190 Sep 1 03:24 Applications drwxr-xr-x 10 root staff 340 Sep 1 00:01 Extra drwxrwxr-t+ 58 root admin 1972 Sep 1 04:00 Library drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 68 Jun 23 07:19 Network drwxr-xr-x 4 root wheel 136 Aug 30 14:52 System drwxr-xr-x 5 root admin 170 Aug 30 16:04 Users drwxrwxrwt+ 13 root admin 442 Sep 1 11:45 Volumes drwxr-xr-x 40 root wheel 1360 Aug 31 22:58 bin -rwxr-xr-x@ 1 root wheel 305280 Aug 30 16:01 boot drwxrwxr-t 2 root admin 68 Jun 23 07:19 cores dr-xr-xr-x 3 root wheel 4314 Sep 1 08:21 dev lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 11 Aug 30 14:51 etc -> private/etc dr-xr-xr-x 2 root wheel 1 Sep 1 08:21 home -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 18672224 Aug 1 06:49 mach_kernel dr-xr-xr-x 2 root wheel 1 Sep 1 08:21 net drwxr-xr-x 6 root wheel 204 Aug 30 14:53 private drwxr-xr-x 64 root wheel 2176 Aug 30 14:51 sbin lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 11 Aug 30 14:51 tmp -> private/tmp drwxr-xr-x 11 root wheel 374 Aug 31 18:34 usr lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 11 Aug 30 14:51 var -> private/var drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 Aug 31 11:24 IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 Aug 31 11:24 JMicronATA.kext drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 Aug 31 11:24 NullCPUPowerManagement.kext drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 Aug 31 11:24 OpenHaltRestart.kext drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 Aug 31 11:24 PlatformUUID.kext drwxrwxrwx 4 root admin 136 Aug 31 11:41 _For_System drwxrwxrwx@ 3 root admin 102 Aug 22 09:33 fakesmc.kext
  5. Hi, MAJ. Thanks for your new RC Script! I was able to install SL by uninstalling ANY_Init.kext and generate GFX string before booting into desktop,otherwise it will only show a black screen. At firest boot following your guide to disable Spotlight and move the kexts into /Extra folder in the Script. Reboot. But I get frequent KP while playing with it, even when I open a file/folder, go on line etc. And the system can NOT boot into 64 bit mode. It just hang there. Did I do somthing wrong ? Edit: 1. Now I can boot into 64bit mode via bootflag in com.apple.boot.plist in /Extra, I do not know why I can only boot into x32 at first no matter I added -x64 flag at PC_EFI v10.2 prompt. And I have network fully working (via 64bit Realtk8139 kexts,although showing "No IP" in System Preferences). 2. Someone at a Chinese forum has compiled a 32/64bit RealtekR1000.kext from source file of Psystar, and several have tested and reported it working(mobos UD4 or UD5) , please, anyone who wants Earthnet fully working in 64bit, test and feed back: 1). If you install into /Extra/Extensions/, it will NOT work cos it needs to load IONetworkFamily.kext, you have to install it into /System/Library/Extensions/ 2). Please delete AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext in IOnetworkFamily.kext(show package Contents > Content/Plugins),or it may malfunction or get conflicts. 3. I do NOT know why I will get KP when building kext cache in 64bit,even in sigle user mode...

  6. digital_dreamer, Thank you for your reply! Yes, I have installed the JMicronATA2.kext and LegacyIOAHCIBlockStorage.kext from iATKOS v7 into Extra folder and tried to burn 2 disks,(by Burn.app and Toast.app) now everything seems to be fine and the KP gone away. But I see in System Profiler.app that they show as TWO "Unknown AHCI Standard Conroller" and "AHCI Version 1.00 Supported", dose it mean that those 4 SATA ports are completedly useless in Leopard? In iATKOS I also installed AppleIntelXPllATA2.kext , and System Profiler reports them correctly, but I think that it's ICH8 or ICH9. L3B3R, Please tell me how you figured out that OS needs to be restart before burning via Toast? You can try to install kexts from iATKOS maybe it will work for you. regards, Z.A.
  7. digital_dreamer, Thanks for your reply! The KP sometimes occured when I mount a DVD disk in R-128 and always occured while burning process nearly finished (about 90% or higher)or mounting at the end of virification in RW-111.Large DMG is OK, never KP, FCP or CS4 Master mounts smoothly! Yes, I also guess that JMicron is the culprit! I have changed Extensions for it severial times (Legacy, JMicronATA2...)...and the same result. But I have been succefully burning a image in the iATKOS v7,which I used to install retail. I haven't tried Burn.app in the retail yet, but I will give it a shot and report later. Is it possible to use the IDE DVD-Rom and JMircron SATA ports in OS X if I change the GSATA mode to IDE in BIOS and uninstall all the extensions for it? regards,
  8. digital_dreamer: Thank you for your great Tutorial! Follow your guide I get my mobo fully working with retail install except the only thing: I will get random Kernel Panic when mount/burn DVD with Toast.app. What can I do to avoid it?

  10. ATI HD4870 or NVidia 9800 GTX ?

    Thank you for your reply! But what I need is someone who has test the same cards that I posted, if anyone who has tested it please tell me..cos I wanna buy a new one for my bro as a birthday gift. Thanks!!
  11. My bro's box wanna Graphic update, after my research, it seems that HD 4870 (http://www.sapphiretech.com/us/produ...gpid=245&grp=3) is more powerful as it goes with the newest Mac Pro, but 9800 GTX (http://www.xfxforce.com/en-us/Produc...spx?lang=en-us) seems more stable and the drivers for OS X is better, so can someone here tell me which one is more friendly or issueless with Leopard ? Or can someone recommend the most powerful Graphic that is fully compactible with OS x86? Thanks in advance!!
  12. If money is not the problem, I recommend you : GA-EP45-EXTREME(http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_Model.aspx?ProductID=2860) 16Gb DDR2 1333+ (4*4Gb Corsair) Core™ 2 Extreme QX9770 @3.2Gh 45nm (or you can choose another one then overclock) XFX Geforce 9800GTX+ 512Mb (http://www.xfxforce.com/en-us/products/graphiccards/9series/9800GTX+.aspx) or XFX Geforce 9800GSX2 1024Mb (http://www.xfxforce.com/en-us/products/graphiccards/9series/9800GX2.aspx) or Nvidia FX5600 1.5Gb (http://www.nvidia.com/object/quadro_fx_5600_4600.html) Pioneer DVD RW (SATA) Seagate SATA 4Tb (4*1Tb) EFI-X (http://www.efi-x.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=26&language=english) Only Audio need patch and you will have the Video working by manually get DeviceID added Leopard Install Disk
  13. Is there MO that fully works?

    Hi, Jukka Kuosmanen, There is no FULLY Patch-Free Mobo availabe except you'd like to buy a real Mac...What makes it be called Hacintosh is that u make nothing impossible by yourself!--and isn't it the most exciting to get OS X working on your hardware? I suggest you get a sneak peek of these Gigabyte mobos GA-EP35-DS4 GA-EP35-DS3P GA-EP35-DS3R GA-EP35C-DS3R GA-EP35-DS3 GA-EP35-DS3L GA-P35-DS3R GA-P35-DS3 GA-P35-S3 GA-P35-DS3L they are all excellent for OS X, even there are post-install package for the drivers u need:(http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=121805) and PCWiz's suggestions(http://######.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=51&Itemid=46) (Maybe a bit old now...) Regards, Z.A.
  14. Help needed Asus k8n4-e se

    Hey Deluka, What is your CPU? Athlon or Sempron? and SSE3 support? What is your VRAM?
  15. Asus K8N4-E Deluxe

    Hi,AfxTwn One of my bro has the same mobo and VedioCard as yours,but he has K8N4-E SE & Sempron 3000+(SSE3),has succesully installed zephyroth AMD 10.5.1 and updated with ASU to 10.5.3 w/o EFI.He also gets Tiger 10.4.9 of uphuck smoothly and xXx 10.4.11 ,as well. If you wanna get Leo of zephy,you can install it an boot with -x to safe mode and delete all NV* & GeForce* from the extensions folders cos zephy's 10.5.1 only has 8800GS driver,after that you can try to install Titan or NVinstaller,NVinJect to get QE CI.I did NOT know if the EFI will wroks,cos Sempron got instant reboot after EFI_8 initialized(boot from DVD or HDD) --If your Athlon has luck you can even try zephy's 10.5.2 r1 or r2 w/ EFI_8 and update to 10.5.3. U do NOT need to worry about Audio cos it will get it right AFTER FRESH INSTALL. The o-board NV Net maybe malfunction after driver installed (kernel panic after using Torrents for long time.etc),you can buy any RealTech 8139 to get fully working network---trust me.it DO NOT need any 3rd party driver! I have helped a lot of my friends to get OS X working, all I mentioned b4 is the one really similar to u in hardware.As for HDD,you need to get Leo in the IDE one and right after or b4 WinXP in the Disk Partition.If u install it at another HDD,u can use Acronis OS Selector to boot both! If u have further questions u can visit:forum.infinitemac.com or leo4all.uni.cc to get help,or you can send PM to me. Regards,
