  1. I don't know if anybody else has come across the issue, however upon installing this patch some third party applications such as Chrome made the menubar go back to it's broken state. I found out that it was because Chrome was still seeing the system as being in dark mode, and had adjusted its interface accordingly. To fix this, I wrote a small applescript program to force applications like chrome to act as they would in light theme. Fix Dark Menubar in Third Party Apps.app.zip

    Safari and iTunes graphics issues

    I haven't edited my clover folder. It is running unchanged form the installation. I think it's r3320.
  3. Hi, All. After installation of MacOS Sierra, I obviously had graphics issues with my GeForce 750Ti: After installing Nvidia web graphics, most issues were resolved, minus the apple icon and back, forward and sidebar buttons in safari. The thing is, these graphic issues only display when Safari or iTunes is the focused window. Even if they're running, but finder (or anything else) is in focus, the graphics return to normal: Does anyone have any ideas? Everything else works perfectly, just not these little icons. It's not life or death if I can't get this running. I rarely use Safari - where it is worst - anyway. Thanks in advance.

    New Sierra installation boots, then hits BIOS

    Okay. This is what I've got so far: A USB drive with 3 partitions: Efi, Clover & MacOS. Obviously, the first two are to boot into clover. This works. Currently, I'm running createinstallmedia to put MacOS on the third partition, then I'll boot and see how it goes. Will report back. Edit: That's done it. Got it going. Just need to get wifi, graphics, etc. running now. Thanks, all!

    New Sierra installation boots, then hits BIOS

    It's done it again. I thought about maybe using a different bootloader. Any suggestions? I also thought of partitioning the USB with a dedicated EFI partition. Would that work?

    New Sierra installation boots, then hits BIOS

    Sorry, same result. boot0: test Boot0: done boot1: /boot6, then BIOS.
  7. Hi, All. I've recently got myself a hackintosh build: i54690k @ 3.5Ghz, 256gb SSD, Cosair VS550 PSU, Gigabyte Z97N-Wifi, Fury Hyperx 8gb Ram, Gygabyte GTX 750Ti graphics. And while that's great and all, if I can't boot, it's useless. I have an 8gb USB2.0 stick, with Sierra installer and clover on it. I plug it into the USB 2.0 port on the machine, push power, f12, General UDisk, and receive the following for about 0.5 of a second: boot0: test Boot0: done boot1: /boot6 Then my BIOS hits, and I'm stuffed. There is a 'continue' button, which when clicked, flickers the screen and goes back to square 1. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Leopard install error launchctl.c:2325

    I did a ton of searching, and fount copies of 1.5 and 1.5.1, however every single file I attempted to download (all the way back to 1.2) had either a broken link or was a torrent that hadn't been seeded for 10 thousand years. Anyway, I've upgraded the RAM to 1GB, and installed windows 7 on it. If iDeneb is the last hope, and it can't be found, then win7 is the best I can hope for. Thanks for your help. I'll keep looking for an iDeneb *.iso, however somehow I doubt finding anything.

    Leopard install error launchctl.c:2325

    Point taken. I was planning on upgrading the RAM. Wasn't aware that the Intel WiFi card needed replacing. I'm really only messing around with this old machine, to see what I can do. Believe it or not, I did get Vista running rather smoothly on this thing, so it has a bit of life :/ I'll take your advice and check out iDeneb. Do you know of anywhere I can get it, or can't you say? Thanks.
  10. Hi, All. I tried to post this question on another website (which I will leave unnamed), who apparently do not support OS X Leopard anymore. Thank goodness InsanelyMac does! Anyway. I'm trying to build my first hackintosh, and as stated, on boot of the OS X Leopard installer, I hit the following error: Bug: launchctl.c:2325 (23930):30: (dbfd = open(g_job_overrides_db_path, 0_RDONLY | O_EXLOCK | O_CREAT, S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR)) != -1​ (see attached photo. I apologize for low quality image. Best I could get :/) Booting with -s -v doesn't help. I get to the single user BASH shell, type exit as instructed to boot the system, and hit another hang. I assume it is the same error in the background. Booting without -v simply shows the apple logo and the spinning loading circle indefinitely. I am booting on an IBM X41 tablet computer (Screen is dead, however. I have to use VGA.) I am using Chameleon 2.1 r2069, and my boot disk is a USB which was 'restored' on a MacOS Sierra computer to contain the OS X Leopard install DVD, as well as Chameleon. Originally, I attempted with A legacy version of an unnamed bootloader, however hit the following: boot0: GPT boot0: testing boot0: testing boot0: testing boot0: error​ Which lead me to change bootloaders to Chameleon. I had to delete all graphics kexts to get this far, and I have to use a USB keyboard, because the built in one doesn't work past chameleon (I.e. for single user mode). As far as I'm aware, the BIOS is set up correctly, and the HDD is completely empty. The USB I'm booting with is on an MBR partition scheme, as GUID wouldn't work. I also tried the Voodoo patched Kernel. No joy. Finally, I have also attempted the install with OS X Tiger (same method for boot disk). That OS only manages to get as far as Darwin, before crashing. Specs aren't pretty, but should be able to run Tiger and / or Leopard just fine: Intel Pentium M LV 758 @ 1.2GHz 512MB DDR2 Ram 1.8" 60GB HDD @ 4200RPM Intel PRO 2200BG WiFi​ Unlike the reply on the other unnamed website suggests, I know that WiFi and Graphics are both compatible if you poke around enough, because of the following YouTube video, however my VGA prediciment could break the graphics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDlgwnedQ6Y Hopefully someone can help with my ancient OS install :/ Hopes aren't high, but anyway. Thanks in advance.
