  1. Install SNOW LEOPARD 10.6 on ACER ASPIRE ONE D250

    If possible, could you please post your voodoohda kext? I'm having a {censored} of a time trying to get this to work on this netbook for some reason. On my AOA150, I got sound to work right away with voodoohda, but I'm not getting anywhere with my AOD250... I've tried about 4 different voodoohdas and 3 different applehdas all supposed to be working for Leopard. The sound card is a Realtek ALC272.
  2. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    No problem. I think the issue that u had was enabling more than 1 CPU... I put the rest of the info for anyone else having issues...
  3. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    cerdric, 1st off, make sure virtualization is enabled in your motherboard BIOS. This is the most important and easiest to miss. Set your VBox settings up just like mine. It's OK to have VBox patched first before doing anything by the way, everything will still work, so if you've already patched, leave it the way it is. VBox 3.1.4 settings: Operating System: BSD Version: FreeBSD RAM: 2046MB Boot Order: 1. CD/DVD-ROM (Selected), 2. Hard Disk (Selected), 3. Floppy, 4. Network IP APIC: Enabled EFI: Disabled Processor: 1 PAE/NX: Enabled VT-x/AMD-V: Enabled Nested Paging: Enabled Video Memory: 128MB 3D Acceleration: Enabled 2D Acceleration: Disabled Remote Display: Disabled Storage: SATA Controller with Leopard.vdi (your virtual hard drive) and IDE Controller (ICH6) for your CD/DVD drive(s) (removed Floppy controller) Audio: Enabled, Windows DirectSound, ICH AC97 (don't have it working in Leopard yet, haven't tried) Network: Bridged Adapter to Intel Pro/1000 MT Server Serial: Disabled USB: Enabled controller and 2.0 (EHCI) Only use 1 CPU with i7 in VBox. Crank up your video memory all the way, your card can handle it (128MB). Close VBox. Edit the VBox machine xml file and make sure the following are added in the "<Extra Data>" section: <ExtraDataItem name="VBoxInternal2/SupportExtHwProfile" value="on"/> <ExtraDataItem name="VBoxInternal/Devices/e1000f/0/Trusted" value="integer:1"/> <ExtraDataItem name="VBoxInternal/PDM/Devices/PcExt/Path" value="VBoxDD3"/> Don't worry, it's ok to add these now. Save your changes to the xml file. Open your network adapter settings in Windows and bridge the VBox adapter with your active network adapter. Then reopen VBox and set networking up for "bridged" and the Adapter Type under advanced for "Intel PRO/1000 MT Server". Save your changes and reinstall Leo. I used iDeneb 1.4 and it worked awesome and I know iDeneb 1.3 works as well (haven't tried any others). I chose the following packages by clicking custom: Chipset: ICHx Fixed Network: Intel100ProVE After it installs, reboot, but when it shows the VBox BIOS screen, force the virtual machine off. Change the boot order so the hard drive is first. Save, and boot Leopard. If it worked correctly, you won't even need to use "-v". I am only using the version of Chameleon that came with iDeneb (if it ain't broke, don't fix it). All is working great for me on my i7 this way and I have a vanilla kernel. If you're still having KPs after following this, use the "-v" and post again, and I will reinstall Leo and write the exact steps that I used to get everything working. Now... If only I could get SL booting... ______________________________________________________ |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| ______________________________________________________ Minatsu-T, I followed your guide and I'm farther along than I was before, thanks! Yet I still can't get SL to boot. It boots, switches from the chameleon background to black screen and freezes in the same place with all of the kernels I've tried so far. I attached a screenshot. Anyone know what's going on here? Is there a kext I'm missing? I'm almost there...
  4. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    Thanks man! I'll give that a try. My question though is how did you replace the kernel? I know how to replace mach_kernel, that's easy. Then do you replace system.kext that came with the one that came with AvN? If you can remember, what were the steps for swapping out the kernel that you used? I'm sort of a born-again noob with OSX86 projects, but this has got me interested again. I tried searching for info on installing different kernels, but everything I've found pushes you in the direction of using a custom installer for (snow)leopard that has the kernel in the OSX installer. Thanks again for you help!
  5. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    I've tried the kernels you listed on page 8 of this thread, I might not be installing them right, but I either get kernel panics with all of them, or they freeze up at the same place as before... If you get a chance, I'd appreciate a how-to on how you installed the kernel you used... I see you have an i7 also... Did you install it after installing the SL retail image to your Snow drive? Before or after Chameleon? Please help! *Edit* - Sorry juliuscesar, was mistaken. It was someone else who had the i7... if you know how though, I'd be really happy! Any chance you might be able to provide a how-to as to how and at which part of the SL install you installed the kernel that worked best for your i7? I'm assuming that you used retail SL image... Correct?
  6. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    No, I'm using a Core i7 920 3.2Ghz... Only dedicating one core. The iDeneb 1.4 install works fantastic, but the snow leopard using the retail image won't work... Think I may just try to get the iDeneb Snow Leopard release... So much for trying to use an actual retail release and actually paying for it. So are you saying that a different version of VirtualBox did work? Should I revert back to 3.1.2?
  7. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    I followed this guide perfectly and have iDeneb 1.4 running, even switched out the controllers from IDE to SATA for the HDs. My problem is getting Snow Leopard to boot. I select Snow from the Chameleon boot screen and everything starts to load, but then stops and hangs at "Starting Darwin x86_64". Anyone find a solution for this problem? Below are my settings: VBox 3.1.4 settings: Operating System: BSD Version: FreeBSD (64 bit) <-- have tried 32 bit but didn't help RAM: 2046MB Boot Order: Hard Disk (Selected), CD/DVD-ROM, Floppy, Network IP APIC: Enabled EFI: Disabled Processor: 1 PAE/NX: Enabled VT-x/AMD-V: Enabled Nested Paging: Enabled Video Memory: 128MB 3D Acceleration: Enabled 2D Acceleration: Disabled Remote Display: Disabled Storage: IDE Controller ICH6 with my Snow.vdi and empty CD/DVD (removed Floppy controller) Audio: Enabled, Windows DirectSound, ICH AC97 Network: Bridged Adapter to Intel Pro/1000 MT Server Serial: Disabled USB: Enabled controller and EHCI Used all the necessary VBox patches supplied in this guide when it said to use them. As far as my Snow.vdi, I followed the guide and installed the very same "snowleopard_10a432_userdvd.iso" that was used in the guide. I've tried the version of Chameleon (RC2) supplied through this guide as well as the newest RC4 release. Followed the instructions for both. Then when I attempt to boot my Snow Leopard machine, I get the exact same freeze up no matter what I do. I get all sorts of harddrive activity, then nothing and it's stuck on "Starting Darwin x86_64". I attached a photo of exactly what I see. (Pardon the quality, had to use my iphone because alt+prtScn didn't work, VBox window went black when I'd click away from it).
  8. Dell XPS 410 Resource Extravaganza

    I'm wanting to get back in the game using Leopard on my XPS 410. I downloaded the iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 release, but no matter if I select any of the addons or not, I can't boot into leopard. I either get the "waiting for root device" error or the gray apple screen with a no symbol. Anyone else had any luck with iDeneb? If so, how? If there's a better way to install Leopard and get to a 10.5.5 or 10.5.6 release, please let me know. Before when I had Leopard installed, I used the Kalyway release, but I'm looking for a quicker way of getting to 10.5.5 or 10.5.6 right off the bat. Please help! Thanks everyone in advance!

    I can see it through the blacked-out spot from your screenshot... When I look at it from an angle on an LCD monitor... lol.
  10. Dell XPS 410 Resource Extravaganza

    Has anyone tried the "JaS OSx86 10.5.4 Client Server Intel SSE2 SSE3" install on their XPS 410 yet? I'm downloading it now, was just wondering...

  12. About this Mac Graphics

    Here's mine. I took the silver stock apple and used photoshop to make it look retro, then added a blueish streak effect to the word Hackintosh. I have HUDs for Adium, About This Mac, System Info, and restart/logoff/shutdown dialogs.
  13. Dell XPS 410 Resource Extravaganza

    Has anyone been able to get working surround sound out of their stac9227 sigmatel hd audio card yet? All I'm getting is left, right and rear mic. It would be fricken awesome to get rear and center working also. I tried to use my own dump from both Ubuntu and OPENSuSE. I had full surround working in both before dumping to a text file in each Linux OS, but after applying tauruga's patch in Leopard, still nothing different than using the STAC9227_83847618.txt dump.

    This is version 2 of my Leopard theme... I changed up some icons, borrowed some from other people on modmyifone.com, and am now using the Leopard server wallpaper: Tell me what you guys think... Do you like this one better than the last Leopard theme?
