  1. iATKOS L2 install not starting on dv6-6150eb

    That's where the problem occurs, the dvd doesn't start, it freezes at the main screen, so I can't even go into boot options.. I'll try the nawcoms method.
  2. iATKOS L2 install not starting on dv6-6150eb

    I don't have an OS X partition anymore, my previous laptop broke and I lost all data. For the moment I don't have any access to a working OS X partition
  3. Hello, I recently bought a new laptop and today I figured it was about time to install OS X, as I did with my previous one. I had a perfectly working Snow Leopard setup running so I am not a complete newbie to this thing. I downloaded the iATKOS L2 distro (I wanted to run Lion :-) ) and tried various options for installing. First: I burned the image (checksum verified) to a dvd and booted off it. The iATKOS start shows up, then I have to press F8 for boot options or any key to continue. When I do this (F8 or something else) the installer freezes and doesn't respond, so there is no way to go into verbose (-v) or safe mode. Second: I expanded the image file to a usb drive with transmac and booted it using a mac bootloader (this). The bootloader starts fine but when I select the usb drive to boot (it is recognized) my laptop restarts without any warnings. I'm guessing it has something to do with my laptop because my older Leopard distros are not working either, which is very bizarre because there are users with identical specifications posting working results (here). Any ideas? Specifications: Sandy bridge Intel i7 2630QM AMD Radeon HD6770M 8GB RAM Thanks!

    any other way to get the dmg or torrent? megaupload passed away...
  5. ALC268 on Snow Leopard 10.6

    Hello, I've installed just about every fix I've found on this forum (taruga, VoodooHDA) but they all give me kernel panic. I've installed Snow Leopard from an usb stick using the myHack Utilities, which worked like a charm. Everything booted right away, had graphics enabled immediatly. The only things that are not working is audio and ofcourse my wifi (intel 4965agn). My specs are in my signature. All help is welcome, Thanks
  6. Snow Leopard Install From USB

    That's the problem, the booting process is fine. I tried booting with -v but that didn't change a thing, it showed no errors and just continued, then the gray screen showed. There is no problem with the boot process, the problem lies with the part where you should normally select your install language, that no language box is shown and there is no way to continue.
  7. Hello, I have created a bootable USB device using this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/2009/02/make-bo...aller-yourself/ The booting itself works, but the following part goes wrong. It boots, but then the screen (after the apple logo) just goes dark grey. I can see my mouse pointer but nothing is happening. If I click a few times the spinning cursor appears, but still nothing happens. Anyone has an idea what is going on? Thanks.
  8. NVIDIA 8800M GTS + 10.5.6 = no QE\CI?

    Are you using Vanilla install? If you have intel core 2 duo, reinstall vanilla, other kernels mess with the drivers and might ruin functionality.
  9. I hate to brag, but - MY NEW HACKINTOSH!

    Pretty nice but I don't see why you would use the 9.5.0 Voodoo Kernel if you have an Intel Core 2 Duo. These support the vanilla install (unmodified OS X kernel) and allow you to do updates without patching. I've installed iATKOS v5i myself (without kernel) and I updated to 10.5.6 using the built-in Software Update without modifications and I have no issues what so ever! It works perfectly, this is a HUGE difference and comfort. I suggest you don't install a kernel and life will be A LOT easier when it comes ot updates... One other thing, you selected 2 drivers for SATA/IDE, you're pretty lucky your install works because normally when selecting 2 different drivers of the same you'll get a kernel panic. Intel AHCI SATA alone should do. Just a tip, hope you can do something with it. You've got an awesome system besides that ;-)
  10. Hello, I've had a lot of trouble installing OSx86 on my laptop and kept saying that if I got it to work I would post a tutorial and maybe help out others with similar laptops/hardware. I did 4 full HDD formats (I had windows 7 running as a test but switched to vista for compatibility) and about 15 OSx86 installs till I got it to work completely. My point: don't give up. I knew nothing about mac and OS X (still know very little) when I started and I actually thought I just had to put in an OSx86 DVD (I used iATKOS 10.5.5 but this is more like a general tut) and install and that was it. Tough luck. I had a lot of trouble with the 8600M GS, the Voodoo kernel was messing it up. Later on I discovered that it worked perfect under a Vanilla install. The WiFi is not working since I have the Intel 4965AGN WiFi card. Let's get started. Requirements: * OSx86 DVD * Ultimate Boot CD * EasyBCD 2.0 My configuration Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 @ 2.00 GHz 2x 150GB HDD (Fujitsu) nVidia 8600M GS Intel 4965AGN WiFi Realtek HD Audio: ALC268 Step 1 Create a new partition (I used 45GB because i'm planning on using this intensively and install quite a lot.) of at least 10GB. Vista users: right click computer > manage > disk management > shrink partition Others: use gparted. Then do a quick format of NTFS (else OSx86 won't recognize the partition and you won't be able to select it) Step 2 Burn your OSx86 DVD. * iATKOS: not a lot of features but installs very quickly (full install under 30min) and is very useful when you're starting * iPC: has a lot of features and hardware tweaks so you can make your machine run perfectly after install without tweaking but is huge (requires DL DVD) and install takes ages. This is good for when you know which drivers to select and don't want to do any tweaking. Step 3 Boot the DVD. Do -v if it's not booting and post error. Choosing partition: utilities > disk utility Select your partition and erase it as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) Close disk utility and continue. Select your drive. When you can click install click customize first (bottom left). Picture This is the crucial part that makes your install work or fail. INTEL CORE DUO USERS: DO NOT SELECT A KERNEL, THIS WILL MESS UP YOUR OTHER HARDWARE COMPATIBILITY DO NOT SELECT 2 DRIVERS OF THE SAME SORT. => for example: not natit AND nvkush, it won't work, because they will interfere. ONE SATA driver etc... I selected the following: ACPI: x86 ACPI Drivers: nVidia: nvkush 265mb and Graphics update System: * SATA/IDE: Intel AHCI SATA * NTFS 3G No network drivers (they won't work) Customize options picture Now click install and reboot. Step 4 When install finishes take out the OSx86 DVD and boot. Now mac should start normally. If this isn't the case and you get for example the boot0 error, boot the Ultimate Boot CD => Filesystem tools > Gag > install Gag > select keyboard > options > add OS > Windows NT > Go back and boot it. Now windows should be booting. If Mac boots and you see welcome flying at you in a dozen different languages you're lucky, this means QE/CI is enabled and your graphics card is working perfectly! Enabling Dual boot: Boot the Ultimate Boot CD => Filesystem tools > Gag > install Gag > select keyboard > options > add OS > Windows NT > Go back and boot it. Now windows should be booting. When windows has booted run EasyBCD 2.0 and add entry > Mac OS, standard settings are fine. Now you will be able to choose what you want when your pc starts. Step 5 Fixes: I only needed the ALC268 fix, use this topic: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...5&hl=alc268 For the experimental ones, you can mess around with the WiFi driver of iwidarwin http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/ Update to 10.5.6 If you didn't select a kernel (thus did a vanilla install) you can just update from the apple site without worries. When install has finished and reboots, the booting takes a while and stops all of a sudden, then reboots and boots up perfectly. I've installed it and have had ZERO problems!

  11. HP dv6000 & dv9000 series

    I've had massive problems with the 8600M GS on the pavilion dv9520eb. I was using iATKOS 5.5i and the voodoo kernel, I had tried everything. seems that was the problem because when I reinstalled using vanilla kernel it worked right from the start (sound is completely fixable -ALC268) The only thing that doesn't work is the wifi 4965AGN, but I'm going to get a usb dongle. (Ethernet works without fix) Hardware: Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz 2GB RAM 2x 150GB HDD (Fujitsu) nVidia 8600M GS Intel WiFi Link 4965AGN
  12. iAtkos, iPC, or iDaneb

    iPC is great because it allows you to install all driver kexts up front and if you do right you should have a perfectly working 10.5.6 system. Just mess around with it for a while (I needed about 8 reinstalls till I got it running decently). iATKOS is good too but it has less features, but then again installs superfast (30min approx) which comes in handy when you reinstall that much. I suggest you mess around with iATKOS a while till you get it running smoothly and know what drivers work and then go for a full iPC install (like i did).

  14. b0 error on bootup

    Is it dual boot? I've had the error a couple of times. The vista (I presume) repair disc wont work. Use this: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html Write the iso to a cd, boot from it and go to Filesystem tools > Boot managers > Gag > install gag > add OS > windows NT Eject the cd, and you should be able to boot normally (this solved it in my case, also the boot0: error) Hope it works.
