  1. No Drives Detected

    I could try that, and then see if i could ghost it or something. ill give it a shot next weekend.
  2. No Drives Detected

    I dont have snow leopard installed yet. I am trying to get snow leopard installed on the IDE drive. I am doing all of the work on a copy of kalyway 10.5.2. I restored the disk image onto the external usb hard drive, and ran myhack on it. when i boot from the external hard drive, it gets to the installer, but only detects usb devices.
  3. No Drives Detected

    I am trying to install the 10.6 onto a usb drive, then install it onto either a sata or IDE drive (I have one of each, IDE would be preferable). I used the myHack 1.0 RC4.1 R55 to do the work for me as i am a bit of a mac noob. I am running an amd phenom 2 x4, so i selected the chocolate kernel, and i selected the IDE fix. When i go to install it, the installer only detects usb devices. It sees the usb drive, and my flash drive if i plug it in, but no sata or IDE drives. I have changed jumper configurations and have had no luck. I have no idea what to do next. -Processor: Phenom 2 x4 940 -Mobo: gigabyte ga-ma790x-ud4p -Hard Drives: 1x IDE 200GB (Drive i want to install mac on), 1x Sata 500GB (If i do have to install on this, i will put it on a partition) 120GB USB external hard drive (Disk with the installer files on it), and a 4GB flash drive (If it can help my situation) Any help is greatly appreciated.
  4. I successfully got kalyway 10.5.2 running, but i dont have ethernet or video drivers. can somebody tell me what drivers to download please? MOBO: ASUS M2n32 sli deluxe GPU: 2 Nvidia 8600GT (if SLI works, i want to get it working, if only 1 card works, i want the drivers for the one card.) Thanks for your help
  5. trouble installing

    i have tried to install kallyway 10.5.2, and JaS 10.4.8, but neither was able to install when i started it up, and it was going through the white text on the black background, it would go for awhile, and then keep saying "still waiting for root device". i have used these discs on the same computer i am trying to install on now, but it wont get past the black screen w/ white text. i need help
  6. SLI help

    cool, thanks
  7. SLI help

    I installed a variety of different versions of OSX86 (10.4 and 10.5), but i have yet to get one to successfully boot. The farthest that i have gotten is to the gray screen with the dark gray apple logo, and then it pops up with the crash screen. I have SLI enabled (2 8600GT 256MB) and i think that might be the problem, but I'm not entirely sure. It might be the drivers i am installing. Someone please tell me what drivers to install. Here are my specs: CPU: AMD athlon 64 X2 dual core 5400+, 2812 Mhz (X86 based) RAM: 4GB DDR2 (2 533Mhz, 2 800Mhz) HDD: 1 SATA 500GB, 1 PATA 400GB, and another PATA 200GB (I want to try and install it on the 200GB pata) GPU: 2 Nvidia ge-force EVGA 8600GT 256MB (IN SLI) OS: WIN Vista 32-bit

  12. Kalyway 10.5.2 wont boot

    I may have found a solution, but i need some help. I saw this http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=33003, and saw that in the OSX86 wiki, (http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Titan) that it is possible to use sli in mac 10.4.8. my problem is that the 10.4.8 that i have is pre-loaded with titan nov.4 release, and it wont boot. in the topic that discusses titan, many people said that they have problems with the nov.4 release. I want to try an earlier version, but i dont know where to get it. i also dont know how to install it without being able to get into Mac (vista dosent see the HDD Mac is on, i dissconnect the vista HDD's when i install mac).
  13. Kalyway 10.5.2 wont boot

    Since my system dosent work because it has SLI, i may have an alternative. Will MAC run on DDR ram, because a can pick up a gig for $15, and im pretty sure the processor is AMD SSE2 1.1GHZ, so would that affect anything?. i need to check a couple more things like processor series, because its about 7 years old, and i will post any more questions
  14. Kalyway 10.5.2 wont boot

    To get past my issue of SLI, could i not install any video drivers, then find an alternative later?
  15. Kalyway 10.5.2 wont boot

    i just thought of something, i didnt install either of the SSE3 patches, and my processor is SSE3, would that make a difference?
