  2. Unfortunately no ... I can only get internal display if you turn off the Graphics Mode to No ... however that only gives you one resolution ... Can you please let me know does your sound work ?? If so what driver did you install?
  3. How to install Hackintosh on Toshiba Qosmio F60/033 (RETAIL) INTEL: NO WARRANTY IS IMPLIED OR GIVEN AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THESE STEPS WILL WORK FOR YOU AS THEY HAVE FOR ME. BACK UP YOUR SYSTEM BEFORE READING THIS GUIDE**. **WE WILL BE FORMATING ENTIRE HDD. Since I had hard time find documentation online with regards to how to install Hackintosh on Toshiba Qosmio F60/033, I decided to share my experience. For this installation you will need following DVD/CD: 1.0 EmpireEFI bootloader found HERE , Download the EmpireEFI V1.085 for Intel Core i series processor and OSX 10.6.3 retail DVD as I am installing this on i series CPU. 2.0 MAC OS X retails DVD (10.6.3) 3.0 Toshiba Qosmio F60/033 4.0 USB mouse (mouse trackpad didn't work for me) NOTE : I didnt make any BIOS changes apart from boot order. Once you have all the necessary CD/DVD's you can start the installation. Before we start I will have to stress the point [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] legacy (this is for unsupported CPUS & GPUS) did not work for me, I was kept on getting a black screen after booting to MAC OS X Retail DVD. I was unable to solve this so went with EmpireEFI bootloader. Lets get stuck into it : 1.0 Download EmpireEFI 2.0 Burn the image to CD, I would prefer to use CDRW as you might want to try other bootloders so why waste CD, I know they are cheap. 3.0 Place EmpireEFI in CD/DVD drive 4.0 Restart computer 5.0 It will boot into CD and it will ask you to press any key to boot into Chameleon screen be patient as it takes about 1 min or less 5.0 At Chameleon prompt, eject EmpireEFI 6.0 Insert your Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD and press F5 7.0 Once you have pressed F5 the EmpireEFI CD will change to Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD, again please be patient as it takes time to load the DVD. 8.0 Select Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD on Chameleon prompt and press enter. This will change screen to Apple with wheel spin. 9.0 When you get to the installation screen, open Utilities/Disk Utility on the top. I didnt use any command to boot into Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD mine just worked didnt need to press -x or PCIRootUID=1 as explained HERE 10.0 Partition your hard drive to GUID Partition Table. Please note that in my case I have FORMATED the entire HDD otherwise you can make the HDD as GUID Partition. YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA SO SAVE ANYTHING IMPORTANT INFORMATION BEFORE COMING TO THIS STAGE. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DATA LOSS. 11.0 Format your hard drive to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) 12.0 For the purposes of this guide, name it Snow Leopard. You can rename it later. 13.0 Close Disk Utility 14.0 When the installer asks you where to install, choose Snow Leopard or whatever you named you MAC partition as. 15.0 Choose Customize‚ and uncheck additional options. This will hasten the install process. You can always install this stuff later. 16.0 Restart computer. 17.0 Place EmpireEFI back in drive. YOU WILL ALWAYS NEED THE EmpireEFI BOOTLOADER AS WE HAVE JUST DID THE RETAIL MAC OS X INSTALLATION AND WE DIDNT INSTALL ANY BOOTLOADER HENCE THE EmpireEFI CD. 18.0 When you get to the Chameleon boot selection screen, choose your new Snow Leopard installation. Next step is to update to 10.6.7 but I havent done this yet also I have not installed any driver yet as I am not sure what drivers I need. I will add more to this once I figure out what to use to install driver I am guessing the best thing out there is [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. But as you can I am confused at this stage as I have EmpireEFI bootloader so I am not sure whether I can use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] If anyone can help that will be great. Once I have installed the driver I will be isntalling Windows 7 by following this guide found here Thanks

  6. Hmm I didnt know that the HDD needs to set as Slave, I will try this tonight thanks. And with regards to BIOS setting i think I have that configure correctly ... If i have issues I will have some photos for you take a look at my BIOS settings if that ok with you...
  7. Hello verdant thank you for you reply, I tried installing IPC 10.5.6 universal PPF5 but unable to boot into the system to install. This is what happens : I tried to boot the DVD using -v and I get the following message, Mac OS version not yet set, not matter how I try to boot I get the same message do you know what is the problem here? Furthermore I trying to get the IPC live DVD to see whether that works. Any thoughts ...
  8. Thank but how do I install the driver when I can't boot into system and DVD doesn't have AGP drivers?
  9. It is an AGP card and I believe it is gForce MX440....I can get gForce 7800 if that makes any difference.
  10. Tried doing -v but that just give me a black screen nothing else also tried -f and -x nothing working, also did a fresh install.... anything should I be doing???? Help please.
  11. Hello All, I have the following PC: Mobo : Asus P4P800 CPU : Pentium 4 2.8GHZ RAM :2GB DVD ROM : IDE/PATA DVD ROM HDD : 1x150GB WB IDE So I was able to boot iAtkos S2 (Snow leopard 10.6.3) and able to install hackintosh on my HDD (I can see my HDD, able to format able to customize my installation, installation complete successfully come with the big green tick computer restarts) however on its 1st boot all I see is the white apple screen I dont see the waiting circle (there is no sniping circle). What is going on how can I resolve this? Please help me. Thanks in advance.
  12. I had the same issue but on different mobo, are you using an IDE/PATA DVD rom? if you aren't then I suggest you do so. Also importantly you will need to set the DVD rom to master via the jumper at the back of the DVD rom. Hope that make sense to you.
