    borisbadenov ATI X1000-series Solution

    Congrats to borisbadenov for this Does this mean you can get TV-Out to work with this method or is it just for full resolution support?
  2. I have also installed MacOS using Marklars iso and the Generic OSX86 Release 1 patch on a SSE2 machine. Is it possible to update to 10.4.5? I did found an update to 10.4.3 although couldn't find details on how to perform the update. Is there a prepatched version for 10.4.5 available? (SSE2)

    Installation Problem

    Actually it was a lot easier than I thought it would be! I just boot up from the DVD. Install MacOS. Restart. Boot into MacOS! That's it! It takes about 25'' to load the desktop on a PIV@2.6HT 800FSB and 1Gb of DDR3200. After what I've been through I believe its best to get a second small drive and install MacOS there leaving your first drive to WinXP. I now have a small 20Gb PATA drive where I have installed MacOS and a SATA drive with my XP setup. If I want to boot from the SATA I simply disable the IDE controller from the BIOS!

    Installation Problem

    This is it! This is my first post from MacOS setup on a 20Gb hd under my Shuttle SB61G2 (v1) using Marklar's ISO patched with the Generic OSX 86 Release 1! Everything is running smoothly! Is 10.4.5 available or should I go on with 10.4.4? Kudos to the community!

    Installation Problem

    Ok! Fortunately no data is lost... I'm thinking of formatting WinXP and install just MacOS. I have the Marklar iso patched to the Release 1. If I have understood this right all I have to do is, Format C:\ Boot with a Live CD and set the partition type to AF Install MacOS Thanks!

    Installation Problem

    Well for now as I said my whole partition structure is messed up so I have to clear things up and try again later...

    Installation Problem

    As I said I'm not sure. It could be because of the mount point!

    Installation Problem

    PolyPill although we face the same error, the type of installation is completely different. I'm trying a native install while you do it through VMWare. Anyway....back to the point! I have good news and bad news. The good news is that MacOS did finally see the partition and I could actually install it. The bad news is that my whole partition structure is wiped out..... So what happened? I believe it has nothing to do with MacOS per se but Partition Magic (PM). As far as the installation goes, I did try again with the final partition and it did proceed with the installation! BUT I noticed that now the mount point was under '/dev/sda2' which is right after the WinXP partition so maybe that did the trick... Any comments? So all went well and I restarted my machine only to get a 'chain boot error'. So I tried to boot into windows and it would keep restarting. So I loaded PM and I noticed that all partitions where whiped out (180Gb of unallocated space, omg!) but the WinXP one. Anyway...to keep it short. I did manage to recover some of my partitions but as far as I can see the whole partition information is messed up (e.g. unallocated space found in between partitions, different order of the partitions etc). For now I'll perform a backup and then try MacOS as a standalone installation.

    Yeah I did set it to active. I can try again though... Thanks for your input.

    Installation Problem

    At first I tried with the last partition. (hence you see the unallocated space) and it was active as I mention on my other post.

    Installation Problem

    I also created a Primary AF partition next to C: but still get the same error... I'm surprised that I cannot find any info on this :/

    Installation Problem

    It seems like we face the same problem. I made the same post just 8' before yours Is it just one partition you try to use? If not, is the partition 'Primary'?
  13. Hi there! Im trying to install MacOS using "Marklar-Tiger.iso" patched with "Generic_OSx86_Install_DVD_Patcher_Release1". I have a Shuttle SB61G2 with a SATA drive. My intend is to dual boot with XP. I already have 8 partitions (up to J:) and and I proceed with creating a partition using 'diskpart' and "create partition primary id=af". My newly partition is now after 'J:'. So I boot up from the DVD and right where I have to select the destination to install I get the following: "You cannot install Mac OS X on this volume. Mac OS X cannot start up from this volume." Did a searh and came up with this. I have also tried marking the partition as active but no luck. I can see the partition via 'Disk Utility', did an 'erase' again to no avail. Thanks in advance for your input.
  14. Which guide did you use? Have you tried installing on a partition? Thanks
