  1. Hi! My English is like it is I'm doing a triple-boot thumb drive with my own build of Windows 7, Xubuntu 12.10 and Mac OS 10.7.3. This drive suppose to work on PC and Apple Macintosh. Already done: Macintosh: [*]EFI-boot Windows 7 installer [*]EFI-boot Xubuntu 12.10 fully working Live with installer build in [*]EFI-boot Mac OS 10.7.3 Installer PC: [*] Booting Mac OS installer via Chameleon/Chimera. The problem is, Xubuntu and Windows 7 needs to be placed on Fat32 partitions, for EFI-booting on Macintosh (as far I know, Mac can only boot .efi files placed on fat32 or hfs partitions). And.. those partitions are invisible in chimera/chameleon boot menu. Problem doesn't exist, when thumb drive is formatted in GPT schema, but it's impossible to boot windows 7 or xubuntu installers from gpt formatted drive (can't find root device - both). I have already tried Hybrid GPT; MBR with 0xEE EFI partition; and few other things. Now I'm testing Clover bootloader, but it doesn't boot my fat32 partitions (there are visible in Clover). So the question is: Is it possible to show up Fat32 partitions in chimera/chameleon, on MBR formatted drive? Best, Tom.

    Osx on ASUS EeePc 1101HA ?

    Ok, now it works. kext for this controller is popular AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext. I've tried it before, but it wont work until I put it in IOATAFamily.kext. I forgot that this kext is extension of ioatafamily, so puted directly into extensions folder it don't work. : ) EDIT!: OK, story is more complicated, I needed to extract AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext from Extensions.mkext for Dell Mini 10, becouse any other don't work. And it work puted directly to the Extensions directory. Now, when I have this kitty on my 1101HA with os ver. 10.6.3 I want to enable sound and ethernet. I'm not intrested in build-in wireless wifi becouse I'll replace it with x264 video accelerator (with work on a mac). So for now, I need to get audio work. Please help. : )

    Hauppauge WinTV (BT878)

    Please, could you tell us how did you done it? I coudn't see PCI tuners support in config creator in EyeTV...
  8. Hi. I tried to find a solution to make this card working, but no idea... PLEASE ! I changed it with a different card, because I think that gigabyte is more popular, and it would be easer to find drivers for osx86. I have installed iAktos1.0ir2 10.5.1 on SSE2 MaxData ECO 400IW notebook. Please, tell me how can I get GIGABYTE GN-WI01GS mini PCI to work. :censored2:

    Last chance for Leopard. It's too much

    Jaffe - realy? It's good information for me - 33% download of iATKOS 20 minutes ago I've tried to repair SATA fake. Maybe I'm blind, but it seems that I haven't AHCI support in my BIOS (Asus P5B mainboard). So I decided to copy AppleAHCIPort.kext and AppleVIAATA.kext from Tiger to Leopard extensions folder (I haven't Tiger - I found this files in the Internet ). Unfortunatly there was a litle problem - I'm working on Vista 64 bit system, so I have no support for MacDrive. I've tried to run it from Windows XP x86 Live CD (BartPE), but there is no way to run this program without installing it (btw. there was very litle chance to fire it up on this system - live windows has almost nothing - no important dll's and applications) Next whate I've try to do, was thesame what on Win Live, but more advisable platfor Knoppix Linux Live. By almost two hours I've tried to run HFS+ support on this #$%^&! system, and well... I've tried to use a mount command, but in result I had a read-only access. I've readed, that to make writable this partition on Linux, I mut tu install new software - hplibs, or something like that (realy I've had nystagmus, when I do this - a hundred of names starts for "hs" When I found this ONE program, that, make me able to mount HFS+ partition (hpmount), and use it in right way (hpmount /dev/sda2 /OSX86) He tels me that there is no HFS+ partition in my system ! God !! I've tried to mount HFS+ by "mount" in reed-only and.. surprise, surprise! code page error! In result of all magic, that I does now I have faked partition with Leopard. There is no way to repair it by setting ID, or something like that. When I'm trying to boot from this partition by tboot I see only blinking coursor. So... If there is a chance, that my error posted upper comes from SATA support, I'll try again from the beginning, and I hope that on fresh install on osx86, and without a tousend of operations on linux I'll be able to use hpmount and I'll copy AppleAHCIPort.kext and AppleVIAATA.kext to extensions Leopard folder. Anybody can give me a respond? Regards Kyvaith P.S. I didn't say that in first post, but english isn't my family language so please be tolerant reading my scribbles.
  10. Hello For a long time I wanted to install this development miracle on my PC. I've considered buying Mac, but unfortunately, for the price of MacMini, I can have machine simply as powerfull as Mac G5... so... you know... xP For a new year I decided to change something in my life, so I thought Osx86 would be good choice. Firstly, I've downloaded flat image (unziped ocuupies more than 16 Gb) of Osx86 Leopard and - going by many guids, tutorials, posts I end on nothing. What I have right now is: I prepared a fresh partition (unformated) in Vista manager (20 Gb). Next I put image of Leopard on this partition by script: dd if=leopard-x86-flat-img of=\\?\Device\Harddisk0\Partition2 bs=32256 skip=1 --progress I found some alternative for chain0 on some Brazilian forum - tboot. Becouse I'm on Vista I don't have ntldr file. So XP install CD > copy > paste in root windows folder. In root folder I put two more files: tboot and made by myself boot.ini: [boot loader] timeout=10 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS [operating systems] c:\tboot="Mac OSX Leopard" multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows Vista" /fastdetect ... reboot and... Hmm.. No HFS+ partition found. This problem took me some time, but I've found a mistake - Leopard partition didn't have a id. So I booted windows and in few steps in diskpart tool I set ID to af. Ok.. It should've work then... By the restart I've selected Leopard from Vista boot menu and... For @#$%! Apple logo's sake... for a one second xP. I'm standing here right now. I have no idea what else I could do. I've tried to use vebouse mode by hold F8 key and paste in Darwin -v - doesn't work ;/ - still Leopard is trying to run something and reset on Apple logo. -s doesn't work too. I have no idea how could I read error code. Please! Please! help me... for new year... for my life with Mac OS!!! xP Regards Kyvaith P.S. No Tiger, no osx86 install cd (only flat image) Asus P5B motherboard C2D 6600 GF 8800 GTS TV Tuner WinFast 2000XP (any chance to work on mac os?) Vista and many LiveCD linux
