  1. Hi everyone, after some hiatus I think I want to try OSX x86 agian. But before I was having the dreded "IOPCCardBridge: start failed" on my presario laptop. I wanted to know if anyone else who was having this problem (with an earlier version) is still getting it with the latest version of the generic OSX DVD 10.4.6?

    Error IOPCCardBridge: star failed

    I asked this question in my thread, then I noticed you are all having the same problem as me. Is there a way of just disabling the need to start the PCMCIA slot via a boot tag or even deleting a certain kext? As I don't care if it doesn't work I just want OS X to run on my hardware and not in a VMWare session.

    Is there a way of just deleting the kext used for PCMCIA slots? I really don't care if my card slot doesn't work I just want to boot it up on my hardware and not just in VMWare?

    IOPCIFamily.kext from 10.4.4 needed

    Damn, I didn't check the version of the IOPCIFamily.kext before I copied it over. It could have been the version thats supposed to work for me, but it still doesn't.

    Dammit, it's still giving me the same stupid IOPCCardBridge Start Failed error. Is it nessesary to have the 10.4.4 version? I think I need the 1.8 version (1.9 is the one from 10.4.5)

    I followed this: boot into osx, extract the zip and copy the folder to /System/Library/Extensions then chmod -R 755 some.extension.kext chown -R root:wheel some.extension.kext then one of the following. 1) kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions then, Reboot 2) kextload some.extension.kext Both *Should* work. Plus, all of this information could have been found in this forum, please try to search for it next time. Cheers Dre From here: http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=13066

    install dual boot question

    I think Vista will take over the booting sequence, you will have to change the partition you have OS X on as "active" with partitioning software me thinks.
  10. Could somebody PLEASE upload/give a link to the IOPCIFamily.kext from OS X 10.4.4. Many poeple seem to need it, aswell as I because of the IOPCCardBridge Start Failed errors: http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=11912&st=0 http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?sh...=IOPCCardbridge Thankyou for anyone willing to post it

    IOPCCard worked in 10.4.4, doesn't work in 10.4.5?

    Could someone post a link to the IOPCIFamily.kext 1.8 please?

    Dammit, this is killing me. Will it help trying the 10.4.4 IOPCIFamily.kext or not?

    IOPCCardBridge Start Failed

    Is there anything that can be done about this error? Damn I worked so hard to do a native install using VMware (then do the chian0 trick) and all i get in return is the same error as everyone here. I also tried -x and it didn't do anything. Could someone post a link to the IOPCIFamily.kext of 10.4.4? I want to see if replacing it works.

    Install help needed

    Ok, I gave it another shot. This time OS selector didn't even try to boot from the parttition as it had the error "Boot partition is missing". Any help? I also get a "MBR error 3" error when I start it up via VMware ********************** Got it working! Problem was that I had to set it "active" again though Acronis as it must have disabled it whe nI de-activated the OS selector to give the boot.ini and chain0 trick agian. BUT I still have the same error as here http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=11912 Is there any way around this?

    Install help needed

    Ok, i have a Presario 2500 laptop and when I try to boot up with my DVD it gives the ole "IOPCCardBridge::Start Failed" error. So I'm trying to do the VMware native install trick, I just need some info as I tried it alread twice and keep on getting the dreaded "HFS+ partition error" or if I try the chain0 boot.ini trick I get the "Chain booting error" error. Tell me if I'm doing it correctly. 1:: Open up a terminal window in XP and type in: diskpart list disk - (shows you your disks) select disk 0 - (or whichever drive you want to use) list partition - (shows you the partitions, verify that the empty space is there) select partition 2 - (or whichever you want to delete) delete partition - (now it's unallocated space) create partition primary id=af - (makes a new parititon in the unallocated space with type AF (you can add "size=XXXX" for XXXX megabytes") ) Once this is done is it normal to not see the partition in XP? 2:: Create a VMware machine with the following option: Custom | New - Workstation 5 | Other - Other | Virtual Machine Name (Optional) / Location (Optional) | Memory - 256MB or above is preferable | Do not use a network connection | SCSI - Buslogic | Use a Physical Disk (Press OK/Continue on the warning that appears) | Select appropriate Device (as in the HDD you want to install onto), Usage - (Optional - for me it wasn't. I had to install OS X onto a full HDD, not a single partition... Not sure why...). | Disk file (Optional). 3:: Boot up "Mac OS X 10.4.4/5 osx86 Patched Bootable DVD" DVD Boot up with the OS X install disk and go into the Disk Utility and erase the partition you created to Mac OS X Journled. And wait for the install to finish. 4:: Install Acronis OS Selector: Install the OS selector and and restart the PC, choose the partition with OS X on it and it should work right? I tried making the partiton a primary one. Still get the HFS+ partition error. Am I missing something?
