  1. Hi there...... What my rig needed after the update to 10.5.6 was 2 reboots.....on the first reboot after the install the boot back into the OS hung which forced the second reboot and then Bingo.... Gonna be trying a fresh install with the Chamelon 2 rc2 this weekend, a friend has managed it... so instead of using the Bootloader 132......format a second drive from with your working osx as GUID then install Chamelon..... followed by installing osx from your working Mac install through terminal to the newly formatted drive..... A friend has done this with a x48 Asus Rampage........ Fingers Crossed...
  2. All Done..... Hi guys, thought i'd report in that my i7 Asus P6T Deluxe is up and fully working Normal Boot Lan Firewire Sound Video with Extreme Qurtz...7600gt Vmware Fusion running Logic & Ableton running We did make my nVidia GTX 260 running @ 1920x1200x32 but on most web pages tearing appears when scrolling, so we replaced it with the 7600gt. Only 1 minor issue to report...... in system info it reports 1cpu and 4 cores, even thought I've patched correctly it at first showed no cpu's & 7 cores before I upgraded to 10.5.6, it feels like all of the chip is being used so i guess its just a reporting error..... Thoughts anyone... But a BIG BIG thanks to are of you guys for posting and replying to my messages..... Cheers Paul
  3. Progress!! Finally H Guys, Finally made it to the Apple Wallpaper just before it starts installing, its been hanging for around 45mins without moving..... we can still move the mouse and the ball is spining but no further movement...... The progress has come about due to a schoolboy error...... I entered my line just as the post advises with deviation rd(0,1)/mach_kernel.voodoo busratio=20 -v -f rd=disk[1]s3 Now using rd(0,1)/mach_kernel.voodoo busratio=20 -v -f rd=disk1s3 BINGO BANGO!! Now I'm waiting with a spining ball with the sky night awaiting further instruction..... PS...... DVD sata1 - HD Sata2
  4. 'Still waiting for root device' Hi Guys, I've tried this Bootloader 132 mothed over and over without joy, am using a Original Retail disc 10.5 but not mater which way I configure sata ports with the Hd & DVD I always land back at 'Still waiting for root device' If my vast amounts of reading have leed me to understand this problem is within the bootload 132 with regards to the sata.kext, I've also tried a bootlaoder with only 1 .kext as per Frankenst1..... but again 'Still waiting for root device' I really really need help with alternative options as it kills me that loads of you guys are running the same hardware as a Hackintosh..... i7 920 @ stock asus P6T Deluxe (Bios 1403) 6 gig Corsair 13333 1 x LG DVD Sata 1 x HD Cavlar 1TB 1 x GTX 260 Many Thanks In Advance Paul
  5. Are you using a Original Retail disc or a Backup/Copy....... I've been been trying to get past waiting for root device for age's..... people appear to lean towards its either it being the the DVD disc o the DVD drive its self...... I have just switched my cables as per someone's post here, DVD sata1 & HD sata2..... am using a copy of 10.5.6 and an original 10.5 which came with my MacBook... Which brand of sata DVD driver do you use? I've tried 2 LG drivers so far without joy...
  6. Hi Guys, Thought I'd give you guys an update after switching cables around after reading other posts... I now have the following Hardware connected; Asus P6T Deluxe (1102 Bios) i7 920 @ stock speeds 3 x 2 GB Corsair Ram 1 x GTX 260 1 x WD Cavlar Green 1TB Sata Port 1 1 x LG (DVD) Sata Port 6 I have download and burnt Bootloader 132.iso without making any changes (ie graphic kext) using a original disc of 10.5 which came with my white MacBook rd(0,1)/mach_kernel.voodoo busratio=20 -v -f rd=disk[1]s3 using a copied disc of 10.5.6 rd(0,1)/mach_kernel.voodoo busratio=20 -v -f rd=disk[X]sY I have replaced X with 0,1 I have replaced Y with 0,1,2,3,4,5,6 I always end up with 'Still waiting for route device' repeating over & over.
  7. Have you completed section E, this patch allows HT & multi core use....
  8. All i have pluged in are the HD & DVD.....I've used an original 10.5 and backup 10.5.4 & 10.5.6 all coming up with the same error.... Is your error at the same stage as my photo shows? I'm gonna try using a different HD and re-run the test.
  9. Hi Guys, This is my first post on this site, I hoped it would be with a hackintosh i7 but at the mo but all i have is 'Still waiting for root device' at stage C .....I've waited along while before trying again....... Do i keep waiting or does something need changing? I've used an original Os X disc as well as a Backup adjusting [1]s3 with different combinations..... Here's a list of my hardware guys Asus P6T Deluxe i7 920 @ stock speeds 3 x 2 GB Corsair Ram 1 x GTX 260 1 x Hitachi WD Cavlar Green (only as a test HD) Sata Port 1 1 x Seagate (Not Used) Sata cable plugged the board but not the drive 1 x LG (DVD) Sata Port 5
