  1. Where to begin?

    No, no luck. MX7118 uses ATI x200 chipset known to be problematic. I have tried at least 10 different versions of OS X86 from 10.4.7 (the only one that boots) to latest iDeneb 10.5.5 but no luck. One of Leopard eversions gets to instal lbut fails to boot after restart. I had no time to investigate but it may be an easy fix. Running 10.4.7 i get the os t boot although erratic when trying to actually install any kid of software, it freezes at times. Also wireless works only at first run, after that stops (broadcom). I have given up on that one since it was big waste of my time. At least my desktop works flawlessly and i am hesitant to upgrade for now, and Powerbook is steady performer still. I will test any new 'distro' out there and post if there is any new findings.
  2. Enabling sound

    Just use the patcher attached and drop the dump file onto it (do not run it as VacTacks11 suggests) and wait for confirmation. reboot and you're good to go. I have Leo Kalyway 10.5.1 and mobo is Intel D955XBK. STAC9221D.txt AppleHDAPatcherv1.20.zip
  3. Kalyway 10.5.1 on a Intel D945GTP not working

    The issue with Kalyway Leo disk that you're trying to install is the fact that default partition scheme is GUID, so deselect it and use MBR option (at the very bottom of the list when you click Customize). It will install with no issues, although I am still struggling to get NIC Intel 10/100VE to work consistently, it is recognized but it shows as disconnected, so I had to use DHCP with manual IP setting. Intel 950 works no problem, ATI X800GTO does not. Koverg patch is useless in Leo.
  4. Differences between Mac OS X and Unix/Linux

    Solaris has the best kernel out there, however, not for desktop use, I have it on my laptop currently and I am working on enabling wireless through ndiswrapper. After all it was not designed for that, even thoug OpenSolaris looks promising as desktop sys. I recommend getting it and if you have partition to spare go ahead, GRUB will do the magic automatically. As for Linux doitiros, i have ried 30 of them and Suse seems to be the best choice for me. Most people like Ubuntu, but it is not my thing. Also, what's better Linux or OS X, i have to say i was Linux user for a long time (started with UNIX though) but i was somewhat puzzled with OS X, thinking that it was artsy-fartsy OS for Photoshop geeks ant that's all, when in face OS X had many power users that I was not aware of. I swithced off form Linux on my desktop to OS X in 2005, and got a beautiful 17" PBook, all because OS X86 scene. Even some of my linux stuff for college was written in OS X shell, and I had to change paths here and there, anc couple of commands to make it work on Suse. All in all they are all good, OSX is the most stabele and polished one.
  5. Just to let you know, with new Kalyway 10.5.1 Leo disk, EFI v8 is enabled and Hackintosh is recognized as Mac Pro, even with Pentium D inside.
  6. Hi, you're right about the danger of -R switch. -R removes the folder and it's contents so if you make a mistake and go without .kext extension at the end then you're in trouble and all Extensions folder is gone, and you can use the command in previous post without -R switch, that may be safer. About Pentium D, I am not sure, everybody is talking about having C2D or quad in order to run, and i have bad feeling that it's not going to work with EFI, after all there is no real Mac that has Pentium D, so it cannot be identified as one. All i was getting is ACPI model so far. Once I'm done with iATKOD download I'll test it and see how it works with this release. I am thinking on getting XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Motherboard with Nvidia 680i chipset but I'm not sure how OSX86 compatible are NV chipsets. I've read somewhere that it has SATA issues, but I don't know for sure. This is the mobo: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/Sea...p;Sku=P450-9102 Cheap and good, very similar to EVGA mobo with same features. If someone knows please post the answer.
  7. It is working in Leopard for me, mine is Sigmatel 9220, mobo is Intel D945GTP. I just got it working so here comes the post. Just remove original Leo's AppleHDA.kext from /System/Library Extensions usig finder or in terminal sudo rm -R /System/Library Extensions/AppleHDA.kext and drop the one i have attached into the same location, use cp or mv commands from wherever you placed the file: sudo cp -R AppleHDA.kext /System/Library Extensions/ Then: sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext sudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions Open Disk utility and repair permissions on Leopard disk, after that sudo reboot That should do it for 9220, just stereo, no 5.1 but it is better than no sound I just have to enable EFI and that's it.

  8. Leopard Perfect Install

    For some reason i am not able to successfully install. I've been there since the beginning, 10.4.3 bur neither ToH or Brazil worked for me. I have Pentium D and Intel mobo and both work perfect with Tiger but Leopard no luck. Pentium D has SSE3 and all the jazz requqired for smooth install but all i get is either cursor blinking in the corner r rebooting after the installation and patching. I have followed the instructions exactly as said and still no thing... Luckily, PB can run it but there is no excitement in just popping the disk in. I am getting Kalyway Leopard disk that promises easy install and EFI emulation so I will just wait and see. My Xbench score: 105.69
  9. Oh my god guys! Please help me!

    Try using any Live CD Linux distro, something like Knoppix on a PC, and mount your drive. Create folder in root when it boots up using terminal app, and mount HDD to that folder. mount -t hfsplus /dev/deviceid /diryoucreated where deviceid is id of your device in /dev directory. Once you find it ( using mount command, just type mount as root), mount it to your created directory, and copy over everything onto DVD (Knoppix has DVDRW support ) ad ther you go. If HDD is detectable in OS X should be no problem.
