  1. Hi guys i need help with a acer emachines Phoenix SecureCore ™ bios for some reason i can not trigger advanced options there is no settings any more for some strange reason, if anyone knows the command keys or has a bios flash to help a huge thank u here is specs CPU Type : Pentium ® Dual -Core CPU T4300 @ 2.10GHZ CPU Seed : 2.10SHZ IDEO Model Name : Hitachi HTS543216L9A300-(PM) ATATI HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GT20N-(PS) System Bios Ver: V1.16 VGA BIOS Ver 1718 KBC VER 03.47 Visit Website Emachines Bios & Drivers Processor1 Intel® Pentium® dual-core mobile processor T4200 (1MB L2 Cache, 2.0GHz, 800MHz FSB, 35W), supporting Intel® 64 architecture Intel® Pentium® dual-core mobile processor T3400 (1MB L2 Cache, 2.16GHz, 667MHz FSB, 35W), supporting Intel® 64 architecture Intel® Pentium® dual-core mobile processor T3200 (1MB L2 Cache, 2.0GHz, 667MHz FSB, 35W), supporting Intel® 64 architecture Chipset Mobile Intel® GM45/GL40 Express Chipset Memory1, 3, 4, Up to 2 GB of DDR2 667 MHz memory, upgradable to 4 GB using two soDIMM modules 5 Up to 2 GB of DDR3 800 MHz memory, upgradable to 4 GB using two soDIMM modules 5 Video Subsystem Mobile Intel® GL40/GM45 Express Chipset with integrated 3D graphics, featuring Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M (Intel® GMA 4500M) with up to 1759 MB of Intel® Dynamic Video Memory Technology 5.0 (64 MB of dedicated video memory, up to 1695 MB of shared system memory), supporting Microsoft® DirectX® 10 Dual independent display support 16.7 million colors External resolution/refresh rate: 2048 x 1536: 75/60 Hz 1920 x 1440: 85/75/60 Hz 1920 x 1200: 75/60 Hz 1920 x 1080: 100/85/75/60 Hz 1600 x 1200: 120/100/85/75/60 Hz 1600 x 900: 120/100/85/75/60 Hz 1400 x 1050: 85/75/60 Hz 1280 x 1024: 120/100/85/75/60 Hz 1280 x 960: 85/75/60 Hz 1280 x 768: 85/75/60 Hz 1280 x 720: 100/85/75/60 Hz 1024 x 768: 120/100/85/75/60 Hz 800 x 600: 120/100/85/72/60 Hz MPEG-2/DVD decoding WMV9 (VC-1) and H.264 (AVC) decoding LCD Properties 14.0" HD 1366 x 768 (WXGA) pixel resolution, high-brightness (220-nit), glare 16:9 aspect ratio Hard Drive1, 6, 160/250/320/500 GB or larger hard disk drive Optical Drive1 8X DVD-Super Multi double-layer drive: Read: 24X CD-ROM, 24X CD-R, 24X CD-RW, 8X DVD-ROM, 8X DVD-R, 8X DVD+R, 8X DVD-ROM DL (double-layer), 8X DVD-R DL (double-layer), 8X DVD+R DL (double-layer), 8X DVD-RW, 8X DVD+RW, 5X DVD-RAM Write: 24X CD-R, 24X CD-RW, 8X DVD-R, 8X DVD+R, 8X DVD-R DL (double-layer), 8X DVD+R DL (double-layer), 6X DVD-RW, 8X DVD+RW, 5X DVD-RAM Audio High-definition audio support with two built-in stereo speakers MS-Sound compatible Peripheral Subsystem Integrated webcam, 0.3-megapixel resolution, featuring enhanced technology for low-light environments Two USB 2.0 ports External display (VGA) port Headphone/speaker/line-out jack Microphone-in jack Ethernet (RJ-45) port DC-in jack for AC adapter Communication 802.11b/g Wi-Fi CERTIFIED® network connection Fast Ethernet, Wake-on-LAN ready Keys and Controls 86-/87-/91-key keyboard with inverted "T" cursor layout Touchpad pointing device 8 function keys, four cursor keys, two Windows® keys, embedded numeric keypad, international language support Media control keys (printed on keyboard): play/pause, stop, previous, next Easy-launch buttons: WLAN, Touchpad lock.

    Hello guys ive done this and it works perfect for live usb os x leopard OSx86 Portable 10.5.4 USB stick image INTEL only (sse2/sse3 or up..) with universal chameleon bootloader.. Re-ripped, rebuild and tweaked TO INSTALL: Drivegenius 2 is fastest way to clone with unmounting both drives..mount USB image, choose that as source disk... and make your USB stick the destination disk !! If it won't boot..install Chameleon Bootloader on your (USB) destination disk !! You can use CarbonCopyCloner 3, DriveGenius 2, or other cloner.. Select this included diskimage as source disk, or mount it first...then select mounted partition/Try to force a clone on block-level !! [try to force a clone on a location where you can unmount both source and destination (the only easy and proper way to do this is with 2 physcally USB and/or harddrives already installed..) But is also possible to have succes without unmouting the drives (source and destination) Always try to unmount destination disk first..... Clonetools H1. With Clonetools H1 choose Hackingtosh architecture, and clone it to your desired location ! Always Repair your Permissions after cloning.. If it won't boot after cloning.. Install Chameleon bootloader on the destination disk, it should be bootable from a USB stick.....or your PC isn't supported.. Login: User = protocolxleohacked Password = x iTunes, iChat, Mail, iPhoto, DVD Player etc.. are removed.. All videodrivers are removed.. to prevent problems on some systems !! Except some Intel videodrivers are left in.. Spotlight is disabled, you can turn it on with cache Cleaner.. Install your own OSx86 videodriver after cloning..in Downloads folder you can find Graphics Update 10.5.4-10.5.5 after installation, OSx86 tools will help....... After succes you can enable QuartzExtreme 2D for even more video acceleration with Quartzsimple in OSX Utilities folder..OpenGL with OSx86 tools.. With video-hardware acceleration Leopard should be running like hell..(NOW IN 10.5.4 UPDATE in Downloads folder there is a 10.5.5 Graphics update, install it and choose your string or injector) Don't try to install OS system updates, unless you know exactly what you're doing !! based on Universal x86 DVD 10.5.2 and INTEL 10.5.3 update version of Kalyway.. based on slipstream script ich9 support updated with iATKOS 10.5.4 Intel system Rebuild, tweaked and updated Notes: If you have problems with booting your (USB) Drive after cloning, install Chameleon bootloader on the destination disk. To get a higher resolution without a videodriver hit F8 at Darwin's promt and type: "Graphics Mode"="1280x1024x32" if you have problems with installing your videodriver on reboot with video gfx (blue or black screen) All you have to do is just press F8 at Darwin's prompt and then type -x, (safe mode) and/or -s (single user mode) then at root type mount -uw / and /movevideodrivers then it will be prompt to move video drivers by class ( nvidia ; ati ; or intel gma) voila! type yes to confirm or enter to skip ! After trying updating your system, type: update -v at Darwin's prompt.. more options for Darwin's promt: * -f This forces rebuilding of extensions cache * -s Boots into a single user command line mode * -v Verbose, boots in text mode showing all debug info and errors * -x Boots into safe mode * -F Ignore configurationfile * rd=disk0s1 - Tells Darwin to boot from a certain partition specified in BSD format. (Disk 0 specifies first HDD and s1 specifies first partition as 0 is the MBR.) * cpus=1 Tells the system how many CPUs or cores to use, useful for Core Duo users. * platform=X86PC - Can be used if problems with normal booting, ACPI is another option here * -legacy Boots OS X in 32bit mode rather than 64bit if 64bit is used due to a 64bit processor * idehalt=0 May stop stuttering * "Graphics Mode"="WIDTHxHEIGHTxDEPTH" (e.g. "1024x768x32") For VESA 3.0 graphics, you may append a refresh rate after an "@" character (e.g. "1280x1024x32@75") * kernel: kernel name (e.g. "mach_kernel" - must be in "/" ) If you need to copy the bootloader to the MBR use this command: fdisk -u /dev/rdisk0 All the permanent settings are stored under /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist and a good way to edit this is using nano in the command line. Another way is to drag it to the desktop, edit with TextEdit and then overwrite the original but this usually saves time with ownership issues. Just copy and delete orginal from location, and edit on desktop with textedit... But for instance to open it in the terminal I would go: sudo -s nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist You will then see something similar to this: Kernel mach_kernel Kernel Flags Boot Graphics Yes Timeout 10 Quiet Boot No Let's look at what each of these do. * Kernel - this tells the bootloader which kernel to boot with. * Boot Graphics - this tells it whether to show the pretty Apple loading screen or not * Timeout - this is the time before the default boot option is chosen * Quiet Boot - if set to yes the OS boots straight to the GUI without showing the bootloader, if set to no it boots to the bootloader first. To use the chain0 boot method this MUST be set to 'No'. To access the bootloader when this is set to 'Yes' bash F8 repeatedly during boot till it displays. You can set more than mentioned above but those are the standard ones and any of the following can be added using keys such as "" or "" to the config file. All commands in darwinbootloader you can put in plist file..... An example of a configuration to boot OS X in safe mode, verbosely, with 1024x768 resolution forced and with the 2nd partition as default is as follows: Kernel mach_kernel Kernel Flags -v -x rd=disk0s2 Graphics Mode 1024x768x32 Boot Graphics No Timeout 10 Quiet Boot No Save your plist file on desktop, with extension .plist, delete orginal, place your own, Repair Permissions with Disk Utillity, Reboot... Even if you have chosen a kernel.. you can still try the others kernels for testing ! (same thing for Kalyway dvd boot except that only modbinkernel , speedstepkernel , kabylkernel and nforcekernel are available as boot options !) All you have to do is just press F8 at Darwin's prompt and then type the kernel's name you want to boot with : sleepkernel (intel/amd/sse2/sse3) speedstepkernel (intel/amd/sse2/sse3) nforcekernel (intel/sse3) modbinkernel (intel/amd/sse3) vanillakernel (intel/sse3) kabylkernel (intel/sse3) with sleep support Kernels: kernel_9.2_sleep kernel_9.2_speedstep kernel_9.2.2_kabyl kernel_92_nforce kernel_vanilla_922 kernel_9.3_modbin kernel_9.4_modin kernel_9.4_StageXNU default boot is modbin 9.4 kernel.. -v at Darwin's prompt will boot modbin's 9.2 kernel..

    ill look into that for u spartango see what i can do with the IOHDIXController been busy with my comp building a new and faster one and with a lot of other systems testing but im caught up now so i can proceed back to this project will let u know if i have any progress
  7. Installation Guides/Kalyway DualBoot 10.5.2 Contents [hide] 1 Introduction 2 Disclaimer 3 Windows XP Installation 4 Partitioning 5 Burning 6 OS X 7 Bootloading 8 Credits [edit] Introduction I did this to my system just yesterday and it worked perfectly. Follow these instructions and you'll have it running in no time! This guide is INTEL ONLY! I have not tested it on an AMD, you're better of going with the other installation guide if you have an AMD processor. Things you need Intel SSE3 processor (apparently you can use an SSE2, but I would NOT recommend it.) At least 512mb of RAM Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD GParted Live CD (download the first one) One blank DVD and one blank CD A copy of PartitionMagic (if you already have XP) A copy of Windows XP (only if you haven't installed it yet) Things you SHOULD have Another computer with internet connection (not needed, just used in the case that something goes wrong) A printed copy of this guide . NOTE: DUAL BOOTING - For people installing on Western Digital HDDs. There is no need to set HDD to MASTER if you're using only 1 HDD. No jumper is required to set to Master. If you do have the jumper set to MASTER after installation and on reboot and if you use GParted to set active boot partition back to Windows, you will get INVALID/NON SYSTEM DISK. This is a quirk with Western Digital drives. [edit] Disclaimer I am NOT responsible for anything that happens to your system. This is a relatively easy process, but if you mess up with the partitioning you could POTENTIALLY cause damage to your drive! Follow these instructions to the letter and you should be fine, but if you feel you need to, BACK UP YOUR IMPORTANT FILES! Don't mess around with the install! Don't let that put you off though, having one of these is a great experience. If you enjoy the final outcome, consider donating to the Kalyway team or even more importantly, buy a license. I myself own a proper Mac, and it is one of the best purchases I've ever made. Note: I did not backup my files and everything still worked, but if you have very important files, I'd recommend putting them on a USB stick or something. [edit] Windows XP Installation Doing this when you have already installed XP will delete all data on your hard drive! If you have already have XP installed, scroll down to Partitioning. 1) Insert your XP disk as soon as your computer starts up. 2) Boot from the CD and follow instructions until you get to the Partition screen. 3) Delete the partitions already there. To delete a partition, highlight it with the arrow keys and press D, then L. 4) Select the unpartitioned space, then press C to create a new partition. 5) Now, think about how much space you need for both XP and OS X. It depends on your hard drive. I'd say you should have 20GB of space for your OS X partition AT LEAST, as the iLife applications etc. take up a fair bit of room. 6) Now, type the size in MB for your Windows install. Remember, 1024 MB is a gigabyte. If your hard drive is 80GB, leave 20GB for your mac. That gives you 60GB to work with on the PC side which is 61440 MB. So if you have an 80 GB drive, enter 61440. 7) Press enter. 9) Now, select that partition and press enter. Then choose NTFS (Quick). 10) Press enter and follow through all the setup steps. 11) Once Setup is completely finished and you have activated Windows, open a command prompt by clicking Run in the start menu and typing CMD. 12) Now type: diskpart and hit enter. 13). Then type: select disk 0 and hit enter (assuming this is the only hard drive in your machine). 14) Type: create partition primary id=af and hit enter (it should respond after a few seconds that it created the partition). 15) Type: exit and hit enter (this will exit diskpart). 16) Close the command prompt window. Thanks to bluedragon1971 from InsanelyMac for the command prompt procedure! Just finished the XP install? Skip the next section and go onwards to Burning. . [edit] Partitioning ONLY do this if you already have XP installed and you haven't done the above steps. 1) Open Partition Magic. 2) Click Create New Partition. 3) Follow instructions until you get to the screen where it asks you to specify a size. 4) Remember, it's in MB (1024 MBs to a gigabyte) so have at least 20 GB for your new Mac partition. (20480 MB) 5) Assuming you have space on your Windows partition, PartitionMagic will take the space from there. 6) Choose FAT32 for the partition format. 7) Follow instructions until it says that you have to restart. Restart your computer at this point and wait for the process to finish. Now that that's finished, let's move onto the next step. . [edit] Burning 1) Locate your Gparted Live CD and Kalyway downloads, then go and download Infra Recorder. 2) Open Infra Recorder, and select the 'Actions' menu, then 'Burn image'. 3) Find your GParted Live CD file, then insert a blank CD (not DVD). 4) When that's finished, do the same except select your Kalyway file and insert a blank DVD. Make sure you set the speed to 4x to avoid making a coaster out of your DVD. Once that's done, move onto the best part: Installing OS X! [edit] OS X Keep your GParted and Kalyway CDs handy during this part of the install. 1) Reboot your computer with the Kalyway disk in the drive. 2) Press any key to boot from the CD. Note: If your computer boots into XP, you must restart and hold down DEL until you enter BIOS setup. Find the section where it lists your first second and third boot devices. This is usually inside the first link on the main menu. Use PGUP/PGDN to change the first boot device to CD, then the second to HDD. Press F10 to save settings (type Y in the box that pops up) and then exit setup. If you need further BIOS help, search for it on another site. 3) When it says "Starting Mac OS X Installer", press F8. 4) Type -v and press enter. 5) Grab yourself a coffee or a biscuit. You've done well so far, this part may take a while. 6) When all that text has gone, you should have come to a language selection screen. Click the arrow to use English as the primary language. 7) When the welcome box pops up, don't click Continue. Click Utilities in the menu bar, then Disk Utility. 8) Select the Mac partition. You should easily be able to tell which one it is by clicking a partition in the sidebar, then looking at the size down the bottom. If the Available is more than a few MB lower than the Capacity, then that is your Windows partition. DO NOT SELECT THIS ONE. Select the other partition which should be above or below this one in the sidebar and have almost no difference between the capacity and avaliable space. Note: Even if you have checked this, make doubly sure! There should be around a 2GB difference between the Windows partition's capacity and available space. 9) With the correct partition selected, click the Erase tab. 10) Open the drop-down menu and select Mac OS X (Journaled). 11) Enter a name and keep it simple. Some examples are "mac", "leopard" and "osx" (without quotes). DO NOT USE A SPACE OR A SPECIAL CHARACTER LIKE ! OR & IN THE NAME! 12) Click Erase and then Erase again in the box that comes up. 13) This shouldn't take long at all, and then you'll find the partition you selected to erase is now called whatever name you gave it. Exit Disk Utility by clicking the red button in the corner. You're now back at the Welcome screen. 14) Click Continue and then click agree. 15) In the Installation Destination screen, click the partition that has the name you just gave it. Then click continue. 16) In the next screen, click Customize. As long as you are using the 10.5.2 disk, you should have not much to worry about. You don't need to select MBR like in the previous release. Don't select a different kernel unless you know what you are doing, the default one is good. There should be a section called Applications, which has some great apps you can have installed by default, eg Adium (an amazing instant messaging client) VLC (one of the best media players) and much more. 17) Once you're finished click Done. Then click install. Note: The media check will begin after you have finished the install. This ensures that the disk has all the necessary files to install OS X. If you REALLY want to, you can skip the check, however, checking the media is the best way to ensure a safe install. 18) The media check takes a fair while and depending on the amount of RAM, so will the install. If you have 1GB, then the actual install should complete in about 15 min. 19)Once it's done, you'll have to reboot. As it reboots, put the GParted CD in the drive. 20) Wait for it to load (window and all) then right-click on your Windows partition (it has a file system of NTFS). Click Manage Flags. 21) Tick the box for boot. Click OK. 22) Click quit on the desktop and when prompted, take the CD out. Reboot. You should now be in Windows. If not, repeat steps 19 to 22. If so, move along to the next section! [edit] Bootloading As of now, we have a working Windows install, but we haven't got any way to get to OS X. We'll fix that in this section. 1) Open My Computer. 2) Double-click on the C drive. 3) Click Tools, then Folder Options. 4) Click the View tab, then in the scrolling box, select "Show Hidden Files and Folders". 5) Uncheck "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)". 6) Click OK. 7) Now, you should be back in the C: Drive. Look for a file called boot.ini. Right click on it and select Properties. 8) Untick the Read-Only checkbox. 9) Now press OK, then right click again on boot.ini. 10) Click Open With... then select Notepad. 11) Make a new line at the bottom and copy and paste this code: C:\chain0="Mac OS X86" 12) Save the file and exit Notepad. 13) Now we have to copy a file called "chain0" to the C: drive. This is apparently on the Kalyway disk, but it is very hard to get. Instead, download it from here (RAR file) or here (zip file). Extract it then put the resulting file (chain0 without any extensions) into the root of the C: drive (the same place where boot.ini is located.) Alternatively, you could get this tboot. A revised version of chain0 loader that supports multi HDD as well as loading OSX on extended partition, unlike chain0. tboot file also goes in C:\, adding the following line to boot.ini c:\tboot="Mac OSX Leopard" 14) Reboot. If all goes well, you should see a menu that says Windows XP and Mac OS X86 when you start your computer up! Navigate to Mac OS X86 and when it says press any key, press the any key and select the option with the name you gave your hard drive in Disk Utility. Leopard should boot up and you'll be treated to a nice into video, too! Good luck with your Hackintosh! . [edit] Credits This guide has been compiled from many different resources. Thanks to members at the InsanelyMac forums and the OSX86 wiki, who provided a LOT of information. All was handwritten and explained by me, but some helpful things were provided by this guide which was written by Jordan Griffith for 10.5.1, so some things that applied to it then didn't apply to it in 10.5.2 and vice versa. Thanks to the Kalyway team and especially Apple. Remember, don't pirate Mac, buy a legal copy! Thanks for reading and I hope you found my guide useful! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . links::::: http://infrarecorder.org/ http://www.mediafire.com/?md0wj0mm189 this is for chain0.zip chain0.rar
