I have never had any luck using ide drives with hackintosh on this motherboard.I am using a sata hard drive and sata dvd drive.My dvd drive is attached to sata port 1 and the hard drives in any other sata port.I didnt need to boot with any command switches but i realised after installation and succesful booting that if i overclocked my processor above a certain level,i would get kernel panics or woudnt be able to boot past the grey apple loading screen.I had to set the bios to the default settings.I also suggest using a usb keyboard and mouse instead of a ps/2 version.
Thanks for the tip.I had tried without success previously to install various versions of hackintosh on my asus K8N4E-Deluxe.I updated my bios to 1011.003 beta my specs are: amd anthlon 64 3200+ running at 2.42 ghz (overclocked.stock speed is 2.2 ghz) 2gb ddr 400 ram 80gb sata hard drive pioneer sata dvd-rw drive Lite-on IDE cd-rw drive. i downloaded the ideneb 10.5.5 version and i was able to install it successsfully.It woudn't detect my cd-rw drive but everything else works out of the box.
Hi all, I am a newbie to this hackintosh business and i have just recently purchased a dell xps m1530.i have seen quite a few versions of the macosx leopard on the internet which i have downloaded like the kalyway,iaktos and toh.I just want to know from those who have sussessfully got hackintosh running on a xps m1530 or similar hardware which version is most compatible.thanks
