  1. Hi all, been lurking in the shadows for a while now. I've just gotten iDeneb 10.5.6 to install on my Motion Computing LE1600 (Intel Pentium M), got it to boot into OSX, I've got full QE/CI, and Tablet recognition. I can't get it to sleep and wake up properly, and I get the message "bad sleepimage header signature. hibernate failed" Anyone successfully get sleep to work on this computer, I've the Intel Pentium model. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank, X86-1138
  2. Hi all, been lurking in the shadows for a while now. I've just gotten iDeneb 10.5.6 to install on my Motion Computing LE1600 (Intel Pentium M), got it to boot into OSX, I've got full QE/CI, and Tablet recognition Need help with the sound though. Can anyone point me in the direction of the proper kext file to use to get the internal speakers working on this thing? I've got sound, but it's switched with the mic jack. I used the APPLE-AC97 audio kext. My sound chip is a Sigmatel STAC97xx. Would the Sigmatel STAC92xx work? I also can't seem to find a Linux Live iso that will boot on this machine, to try and get a codec dump and try the AppleHDA-patcher. Any help is much appreciated, since I've been all over this site, other sites, and Google with no results. Thanks. X86-1138 P.S. off topic, but can anyone help too with bad sleep image header . . . hibernate failed message at boot? Will post in other areas as well. Goal is to post a full install guide for this computer so those who want to try it wont run into all of these hurdles. My contribution to the community. Thanks again.
  3. Hi kvnxp, When you say that "nvinjectgo 0.2.0 !! work fine" does that mean QE/CI works also? Does any one have the solution for getting the QE/CI to be supported? Thanks, X86-1138
  4. Hi again, I just noticed from your other posts that you used iPC. With that question asked, how did you update to 10.5.8? Thanks, X86-1138
  5. Hi I've been trying to update from iDeneb 10.5.6 on my TC4200 to 10.5.8. Was wondering what process you used and if you could let me know which install version you used in the beginning. I just need to know which versions of First install work (did you use iPC, iDeneb, Kalyway, etc.) with what update method (Apple update, iDeneb, etc.). I think I can take it from there. I've looked all over for a solution, but haven't been able to successfully update. Thanks, X86-1138
  6. Cannot update to 10.4.10

    Hi, and Welcome. Try doing this: Since you have the 10.4.10 installed, use your Jas 10.4.8 disc, boot into the installer, but don't install over the 10.4.10. Go directly to Disk Utility in the Menu Bar at the top of the screen. Select the Hard Drive you installed KoolKal on, and then repair the permissions. When it's done, close out of Disk Utility, and then ReBoot the system. See if that helps. I've had the most luck using either the Jas 10.4.7 install disc or the Jas 10.4.8 disc to fix problems. Currently I have everything working on an Intel D945GCCR Motherboard, and did a lot of repairs with the Jas discs after using the KoolKal. X86-1138 out.
  7. Intel D945GCCR

    Ok this is my first post in this area of the forum, hope it helps everyone with the D945GCCR Motherboard no LAN problem. I'm actually using the Ethernet on my custom system now to make this post. I Spent 8 hours reading and reviewing the forum. I then set out to figure out how to do this, cause most of the steps people have been posting are incomplete. These steps might also work for other model Intel Motherboards with the same LAN port. I'm currently running a system that started as a Jas 10.4.8, and then was upgraded directly to a KoolKal 10.4.10. If I sound very specific in my writing, I'm doing so for all the noobs like me. Ok noobs, print these out so you can follow along, much easier. Instructions for getting OS to recognize the Built in Ethernet natively. 1. Download the old kext file released with 10.4.3 (found here http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?act...ost&id=7135 2. Uncompress the file. 3. Copy the uncompressed file to an external drive. Be it an iPod(what I used), a USB Flashdrive, external Hard Drive. 4. Now connect your external drive to your new D945GCCR custom system. 5. Drag the folder "AppleIntel8255x[1].kext 2" from the external drive to the Desktop. 6. Open the folder, inside you will find the old 10.4.3 kext file. and an instructional txt file. 7. Read the txt file, don't do anything just yet continue with these instructions. 8. Open the AppleIntel8255x.kext, then the Contents folder file and locate the info.plist and open that in Text Edit, Text Edit is located in your Applications folder. 9. Now there is a step in the txt file that came with the kext file that is missing in order to get this to work. 10. Edit the info.plist in Text edit, and add 0x10948086 to the end of the string that looks like this: <string>0x10928086 0x10518086 0x10508086 0x10298086 0x10308086&0xfff0ffff 0x12098086 0x12278086 0x12288086 0x12298086 0x24498086 0x24598086 0x245d8086 0x10608086&0xfff0ffff</string> 11. Add 0x10948086 to the end, should now look like this: <string>0x10928086 0x10518086 0x10508086 0x10298086 0x10308086&0xfff0ffff 0x12098086 0x12278086 0x12288086 0x12298086 0x24498086 0x24598086 0x245d8086 0x10608086&0xfff0ffff 0x10948086</string> 12. Save the info.plist and close Text Edit. 13. Ok, now that that is out of the way drag the entire AppleIntel8255x.kext file into your /System/Library/Extensions folder. and Authenticate. 14. locate the the non-functioning AppleIntel8255x.kext in /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntel8255x.kext, and delete it. You may need to Authenticate again. 15. Now open Terminal and type in "sudo -s" no quotes and then enter, then enter your password. Note that you will not see the curser move while you type this in. This is normal, just be sure to type in your pass word correctly and hit enter. 16. Then copy and enter each of the following lines: chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntel8255x.kext (hit enter) chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntel8255x.kext (hit enter) kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntel8255x.kext (hit enter) 17. Terminal will now attempt to manually load the kext file. If you see in the string of lines that comes up onto the screen that it loaded successfully, Great! Go to the next step. If not, go back to the beginning of this reply and try again. 18. Upon successful loading of the kext, enter the following command: rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext (hit enter) 19. Close Terminal, it will ask you if you wish to terminate your session, say yes/hit ok/click enter, I can't remember exaclty what it asks, just comply. 20. Open Disk Utilities and Repair the Permissions 21. Reboot your Custom System. 22. After the OS has restarted, click on the Apple in your menu bar and select System Preferences. 23. In the Preferences Panel open Network, and you should see Built in Ethernet as one of your port options. If it is there Great! If not, try installing the kext again, and be sure to follow all the steps. 24. Configure the Ethernet port according to how you connect to the Internet. I'm running to a Router, so I left it at Automatic Configuration. 25. Open Safari and you should now be able to connected to the outside world using the Built in Ethernet port on your D945GCCR Intel Motherboard. To be sure I wrote out these steps right I repeated the entire cycle 5 times, and every time I got the OS to recognize and see the Built in Ethernet Port. Hope this is helps a lot of you out there be you a Master or Noob. Now to conquer the problem of now Sound Out Put. Later, X86-1138
  8. Hi all, Here is what may seem to be a stupid question, but I just want to be clear on something. On the parts lists located on the Wiki of OSX86project site, what does "Fully working with out patching" mean. Does it mean that I can just take a copy of a Universal binary Tiger OS X disk and install it using parts from the listed that say "YES" Currently I've built a Mactel with an MSI motherboard w/Intel Celron D, and have 10.4.7 running on it. I would like to see if I can build another with an Intel motherboard and see if I get some better performance. Thanks, X86-1138

    Thank's for all of the suggestions. I was able to install Natively after this post. See my last post: http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=8825 Not sure if anyone else has tried installing this way, but it worked great for me. Regards, X86-1138
  10. Yahoo! I did it!

    O.K. as promised here is the link to where you can aquire the Darwin x86 Install CD. http://mirror.services.wisc.edu/mirrors/ap...n/darwin/8.0.1/ You can download either a cdr image or an iso. Which ever works for you. I used the iso, mounted it with Toast and then used the Copy option to burn to a CD. Later, X86-1138
  11. Yahoo! I did it!

    Hi all, After weeks of reading this forum, I've finally done it. I was able to install OS X x86 natively onto my self built system. I'll post my system components later. But here's how I did it. One Note: I did all of my prep. work on a PPC Mac G4. I was having trouble loading the DVD install disc. Kept getting the debugger panic and the "You need to restart . . . in four dif. languages". Nothing new here. I thought maybe that it was because I hadn't checked the md5s. Not the case at all. I built the system based on a parts list I compiled from the forum where everyone had listed being able to install natively. My problem was with the hard drive I was trying to install to. It had an old Win2000 system on it from eons ago. I later read on the forum that x86 didn't really like to try and install on to an already occupied hd. So I zeroed out the hd on my Mac, then reinstalled it into my self built system. Restarted with the x86 DVD in the drive and then got a message telling me that there wasn't a bootable configuration. Then I got to thinking, and I did some more reading and found and aquired a copy of the Darwin x86 Install CD. I figured that since OS X ran on Darwin that maybe it had to be installed prior to the OS X install. Kind of like Dos for Windows. Crossing my fingers I popped the cd in, I actually thought it would be a long shot. More errors and then something happened. I got it to install Darwin. I rebooted the system with the OS X x86 DVD patched with Jas patch, and crossed my fingers again. Holy Mac in a box Batman! It worked! :censored2: No panics and no "Restart" screen. Before installing I wanted to make sure everything was good and proper for the install. So I used Disk Utility and zeroed out the hd again. Then I went back to the install screen and we were flyin'. It took exactly 30 minutes for the full install. After that it rebooted, I then repaired the permissions, and vuallah! Check back later, as I will post a link to where you can get the Darwin Install CD, and my system specs. Now to run Xbench to see what speed I'm at. Visually it's "Amazingly Fast" P.S. Loading the Darwin thing was a little confusing, now that I know what to do, all you need to do is ask and I'ld be glad to help. And one last question for you all. I'ld love to post pics of my Hackintosh. What's the best way to do that, can I post directly to the forum posts? And thanks for everyones help. X86-1138 signing out.

    Unstable Connection, I didn't check the md5s of the ISO. Do I do this before I patch with Jas Patch, or after. I aquired a copy of the "macosx_10.4.3_8f1111_for_dtk_userdvd.dmg", then pached it with Jas Patch. I didn't check the md5s, since most of the posts using this disc image had no problems. I assumed that this particular ISO was with out errors and simply patched it. The Patch application said that the ISO had been successfully patched, so I thought it was without errors. Are there different versions of this ISO? Can I check the md5s on a Mac and how? Thanks, X86-1138

    Amazondani, Yea, I've disable the USB legacy support, and still get the "Restart" Haven't tried installing with VMWare yet. As in my last post I am exclusivly a Mac User. I guess I'm going to have to Install a second drive into my PC box and install Windows on it, then try VMWare. Does any one know if VMWare would work through Virtual PC? Thanks, X86-1138
  14. Hi All, I just built a system and here are the parts I've used, just note that I've searched just about every site for compatable hard ware and all of the components I've used were claimed to work natively with OS X x86. Part list: MSI 865PE NEO2-PFS Socket 478 Motherboard Pioneer DVR-110DBK Black 16X DVD Burner OEM/Softwr Intel Celeron 340 2.93Ghz 533FSB Socket 478 PS Keyboard/Mouse ATI 9600 AGP Video Card 1 GB of Ram I've been a Mac user for the past 6 years, and thought this would be a fun project to tinker with. If any one has been able to use this particular MB from MSI, how do I setup the BIOs to get OS X to install natively? I keep getting a debugger error when I enter -v or -s, and when I just hit enter or -x it starts to load and then I get a panic that tells me to "Restart my computer , blah, blah, blah. So I tried different settings in the BIOs, less errors listed through the -v option, but still a debugger error, and "Restart" screen through other options. I'm using the correct DVD with the Jas Patch, what else could be blocking my ability to install. After I patch the ISO should I correct the Disk Permissions, then burn it to a DVD? If I us VMWare can I get OS X x86 to run natively afterwards? Thanks, X86-1138
  15. Keyboard Help Please

    Hi All, I've been trying to install the the OS I've grown to Love on Mac's, now onto my Intel. Yes, I know there are posts about keyboard issues, but I'm to bogged down at the moment, new baby and she's a handful. So to get to the point, what are the biggest issues I need to focus on in order to get a keyboard to work with OS X86 with the latest Maxxuss update. 1. Do I need a serial keyboard and mouse for the PC end, can't seem to us my existing USB Mac Keyboard to enter and change my BIOs to change the boot lineup? 2. If I purchase a PC as apposed to a Mac keyboard, will it work once I install OS X? Will the Windows Key act as the Apple Key? 3. I noticed that some people, in my quick skim through other posts, have deleted some kext files to get keyboards to work. Is this absolutely necessary? Or will it boot natively after I've fixed the keyboard issue. 4. Thanks to all for their help in advance, since I can't afford a new Intel Mac. All of my money has gone into what I could to build an Intel System, and Diapers.
