  5. P5K-SE - Retail Leopard Instalation

    Thanks Jimmy Mallman for the great guide for Asus P5K. Just spend hours and hours searching the forum to get an osx86 up and running, and I was allmost there, and then i happily found your great guide, thanks again! I now got an fully funtional retail osx 10.5.6 with all hardware working, well just almost? I cant set the native resulution for my monitor eg. 1440x900? I cant choose my monitors native resolution(1440x900) in the monitor setup in system settings! I have tried to set the option for the native boot resolution in the universal osx86installer, but with no luck, i defaults to 1280x768! What do i have to do to set the right native resolution? My specs are; Motherboard: Asus P5K CPU: Intel Core 2 duo 2.66 RAM: 2 x 2 GB VTech GFX: XFX Geforce 8800 GT 512 MB (applied via EFI strings in the Universal osx86 installer) HD: Samsung 400 GB + Maxtor 500 GB + External WD Mypassport 500 GB (at the moment running the oxs86) Soon i get an dedicated internal drive for that! all set up in perfect dual boot with Vista with EasyBCD 1.7.2 Best regards, Jonit I got dual boot working with EasyBCD 1.7.2!

  6. I dont understand?, why cant i boot from an sata dvd drive? i´ve just made an succesfull osx86 install (boot-123, retail osx 10.5.4) on a Asus Pk5 MB statinary PC from an sata DVD drive! I have no option to enable/disble ACHI in my zepto 6625 bbios! The retail osx 10.5.4 boots just fine from the boot-123 standard image, but halts at the firewire initialisation! Best regards, Jonit
  7. I´ve tried to install different versions of osx86 (Kalyway 10.5.2, Ideneb 1.3 10.5.5 and Boot-123 with retail osx 10.5.4) and on my Zepto Znote 6625WD NOTEBOOK, but unfortunately with no luck so far. The installation halts at the same place, no matter what version i have tried to install, beeing the place where i tries to initialize the Firewire OHCI port. I´ve included a photo of the halted boot screen, using the boot flag -v. The last lines contaning the errors (as far as i can see) are as follows: (but there may be other errors that I have missed?): IOatacontroller device blocking bus IOCardbridge: start failed Firewire (OHCI) TI id 803a PCI now active, GUID 1111111111111111; max speed s400 Error: Firewire unable to determine security mode: defaulting to full secure Still waiting for root device ... This last message is repeated! And.... nothing happens anymore! Please help, any suggestions are very appreciated. Be aware that i am a total newbie on osx86, so please explain what to do! :censored2: I have Vista ultimate 64 bit installed on first partition, end and empty 2. partition ready for the osx install.
