  1. Heyuh. I've tried the installer, it's the only one that gets the PS/2 mouse (PS2FixMouse.zip - usb keyboard) to work. However, the mouse is too fast, and jumps several pixels at a time, even if I set the speed to lowest. I've googled a bit, but was unable to find a fix, except for some guy that modified the source and recompiled it. But I wouldn't know how to do that, so I'm kind of stuck with a borrowed USB mouse... any ideas?
  2. I was using a modified AppleVIAATA.kext. What I did was add the Marvell device ID to the list of device id's in the kext. In the meanwhile I installed iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6, and it comes with that modified kext by default. Hope that helps.
  3. [FIXED] iPC + ACPI kernel error

    I never figured it out. Maybe you can look for a ROM which is good for your mobo... Alternately you can try iDeneb, which worked for me without any BIOS changes. Cheers and good luck PS: what mobo do you have?
  4. iPC MSI p965 Neo-F SATA problems

    iDeneb used to be more stable for me, now with iPC (10.5.6), there are some stability problems, waking up from hibernate seems to fail, just get blue screen (didn't let it run too long though, maybe it does come back eventually), reboot takes a few seconds too, and sometimes the screen freezes, although the rest of the system seems to run fine (music still playing). I haven't tried alternative kernels yet, maybe u should do that, and see if your problems disappear...
  5. reboot loop

    I saw that in your previous post. PearPC might not work. These emulators/virtualization layers aren't perfect... Try VMWare or VMWare server or VMWare player (i think the latter one is free) And search for pcwiz's VMWare image
  6. reboot loop

    djmargera sorry, the link i gave you is for the voodoo kernel, which you can use after installation... Try different distros with alternative kernels (some of the kernels i know: toh, netkas, sleep, modbin, StageXNU, voodoo). vanilla is the default kernel, which comes with the original mac os x. it's open source, so it has been modified by osx86 hackers to work on regular pc's. the kernel is the part at the core of the operating system, and it is one of the first things to execute. the rest of the operating system relies on it. And try on VMWare too.
  7. reboot loop

    Try this too. http://code.google.com/p/xnu-dev/
  8. reboot loop

    Sorry, can't help you out much further... Try getting as much info as possible, and search (forums and google) until you find a solution or a compromise. Also try out pcwiz's vmware image. You can run Leopard 10.5.2 in vmware. Search the torrents (and web) for that one too. http://######.com/index.php?Itemid=...t&task=view
  9. reboot loop

    On torrents you can find the osx86 distributions (iDeneb, iATKOS, Kalyway and others). On the forum you might find an hacked BIOS ROM for your motherboard... but i kinda doubt it, since it's so old.. but do search, who knows. But first, try the different distributions, and then search for a BIOS replacement. Good Luck!
  10. Hello friends! I have been successful in setting up iPC 10.5.6 and iDeneb 1.3 10.5.5. Here are their stories: iDeneb was the only DVD that was booting for me (Kalyway and iATKOS didn't work), so I went along with it. It installed fine, but I had some trouble. Eventually it worked fine. On installation i selcted the ACPI-Fix. The setup was this (you can see my hardware in my signature): PATA (Marvell) driver: a modified AppleVIAATA.kext Video: NVInstaller41 Audio: AppleAzaliaAudio.kext Kernel: Voodoo 9.5.0 (I think the vanilla would have worked too, dunno). Only one core (cpus=1) Later on, I tried installing iPC, but i had some trouble with it too. It looks like my motherboard, the Asus P5Q-PRO is becoming popular, and lucky for me, somebody provided a patched BIOS update (I used 1613_BIOS_Asus_P5Q_PRO_for_MAC_OS_X___all_OS__incl._by_Juzzi..ROM.zip). It's a bit inconvenient for me to flash the BIOS, but it worked and now I'm running Leopard 10.5.6. I think software update might work too, but I've nothing to test it with (10.5.7? 10.6? Snow Leopard? I'll wait and see ) Graphics is working with NVKush (I tried a bunch of packages, NVInject and others, and they failed. In fact with NVInject I had screen corruption). The Attansic L1 on-board network card still doesn't work, although I haven't given it much effort. Not sure what other info to post. If you guys have questions, I'll be happy to answer them, and if there's extra info, I'll also update this post. I can also upload working kexts if you wish. Here's a copy of my current signature, cause I might change it later: Motherboard: Asus P5Q PRO with modified BIOS Chipset: Intel P45 / ICH10R CPU: Intel Celeron Dual Core E1400 2.0GHz SSE2/SSSE3 (both cores working) RAM: 1GB HDD: 250GB IDE IDE controller: Marvell 88SE6121 (working) DVDRW: HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N (IDE) (working) Audio: Realtek ALC1200 8-channel High Definition Audio codec (onboard) (working using AppleAzaliaAudio.kext) Video: Gigabyte GeForce 8400 GS 256 MB (working using NVKush) Network: Attansic L1 (not working properly) and Realtek 8139 (working with default drivers) USB Storage: Hama card reader (working) USB Printer: HP DeskJet F2180 All-in-one (working. see here) Operating Systems: iPC 10.5.6 with vanilla kernel 9.6.0, Windows XP, Ubuntu 8.10 Bootloader: GRUB + Chameleon 1.0.11 Thanks and good luck! vampi

    No, by BIOS update i mean a hacked BIOS ROM, that you might find (that's right: use the search function) on these forums... I can't provide you with a link to the torrents (forum rules), but you can search using your favorite torrent search engine. Also look on these forums to see which distributions are popular.
  12. [FIXED] iPC + ACPI kernel error

    FIXED! I have fixed it by using a BIOS update. It's rather inconvenient to flash the BIOS chip but... it was the quickest way for me...
  13. iPC MSI p965 Neo-F SATA problems

    I was able to fix it so iPC installs and works fine. I used a BIOS update... look for a similar update for your BIOS/motherboard, on the forum(s). Maybe it will work for you (beware, it is dangerous to flash your bios).
  14. reboot loop

    O {censored}! That's the right info, but that's one old mobo! Try searching the forum(s) for a bios update... sometimes they work... it worked for me. Otherwise i suggest trying different distributions (iDeneb, iAtkos, iPC, Leo4All and whatever else you can find...). Perhaps you can try older versions too. If you have any success, you'll have to look for an AGP driver too, later on.

    What model is your Motherboard?
