  3. Stable Retail Snow Leopard 10.6.8 on Dell Dimension 8400 !! See top of topic
  4. Salut Mac3500, mon hack en 10.5.7 est stable (j'ai suivi le tuto de Carlnunes) A priori on peut installer 10.6, toutefois je n'ai pas réussi à obtenir un état stable (d'autres ont réussi) Je peux te donner les notes de ma config, mais ce serait top si tu arrives à installer 10.6 ou 10.7

    Take a look here and here And the tony86 forum is a great place! I try so many things these 2 nights without success... with Kernel Flag "arch=i386" I can boot but system is unstable and no full kext loaded. My wife will kill me so I will stop few times... If you found a good guide tell me

Hope it will help someone!
  9. Thanks to iMorocco and TH3L4UGH1NGM4N, I can confirm Snow Leopard 10.6.3 (Retail and iAtkos S3 v2) works well on DELL Dimension 8400 with AHCI/SATA support !! (iMorocco DSDT + Chameleon v2RC4 + some Extra Kext + Chocolate_Kernel) The major issue is when I try to enable acceleration and dual monitor with my graphic cards, GeForce 6800 LE (00c2)...I try Injectors, Enablors, EFI Strings, i386 mode, add entrie in NVxxx.kext... my hack reboot in loop or stay in verbose mode. So I go back in 10.5.8 (instead of 10.5.7) until I have a better video card.
  10. @EpicKris I take this card because I have it with old other computer parts You can look at forum to find another one can that be better If I can, I will try to help DST is a file that will interface BIOS/OS/KERNEL, search on the forum

  13. Dell Dimension 8400 iportable snow leopard

    Hello kbtarl! I know issue with Dimension 8400, I succeed to install OSX 10.5.7, did you try this version ? I try some test with an ATI 2400 card and must specify PCI ID to have it work, but dual screen never works... Can give me details of your Snow Leopard installation?
  14. In BIOS, SATA must be in COMBINATION I disabled integrated NIC iDeneb 1.5.1 OSX 10.5.7 Chameleon v2 Kernel 9.7 Qoopz ICH Fix AC97 Audio Speakers must be connected to the black connector with power on. Note: 10.5.8 Update or Full install does not work, even with voodoo, anv or qoopz kernel I will stay at this configuration for a long, very stable!
  15. My Dimension 8400 hackintosh rocks! In BIOS, SATA must be in COMBINATION I disabled integrated NIC iDeneb 1.5.1 OSX 10.5.7 Chameleon v2 Kernel 9.7 Qoopz ICH Fix After First Boot, install AC97 from the pkg attachment You must connect speakers to black connector, not the green AppleBCM5751Ethernet works but needs more trick and stay unstable. I installed an old 3C905B-TX network card, that works out of box My video is ASUS GeForce 6800 LE, with nvDarwin 256, quartz and dual display supported. Hope it will help. FRK8400.zip
