    Get iLife, iWork & Aperture for free

    Base install of clover as described above but not addition mods for anything like dsdt or smbios. Boots stock and was able to update everything. Perfect tut guys.
  2. Honestly... I just use the old OSX86 tools to rename it. I know there is probably a better way to do it. But thats how i renamed my 1090t. Looks nice.

    Snow Leopard - Dell Optiplex GX620

    http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=233396 Uses Retail DVD. Worked perfectly for my gx620
  4. Actually i did a reinstall and basically did this but only updated to 10.6.7 as that was as far as i needed to go. I picked up a nvidia 9600 which has beautiful support. install went smooth and everything is running great now. Used myhack to install whatever keeps the cmos from resetting everything works except usb wont wake from sleep i always get AppleUSBEHCI[0x6e2d800]::CheckSleepCapability - controller will be unloaded across sleep when I boot. But the usb still works. This is going to be a gift and wont be used to often, It is also my dummy project for my person computer. uses a new chipset and 1090t but im hoping it will go smoothly. I used a second hackintosh to do the initial install. works like a charm from the retail DVD. I did manage to get the 5750 supported but not like i liked. (plus the 5750 needs to go back into my rig.) So i bought the 9600 for $30 on craigslist. Thanks for posting your steps as it was confirmation that I had indeed scoured the interwebs long enough to come up with a good plan of attack.
  5. thanks for the response. I will look into this as I have added a new video card which gives me full qe/ci support. Im using the voodoohda.kext and that solved the sound issue. Are there any drawbacks to to using an edited DSDT? Thanks
  6. Seems ok. I do recommend having a second hackintosh available for the install. With one I built from a dell optiplex gx620 i bought on craigslist for $80 I was able to get my amd 1055t system running. Specs ASRock A780GXE/128M (my old mobo) Amd Phenon 1055t x6 800 GB WD caviar Green (picked it up for $40 bucks) 500 watt ps 4 gig ddr2 800 Adata ram Sound works with voodoohda. Ethernet works OOB USB OOB Firewire OOB Haven't Tried esata but since it is just abridge from the regular sata on this board I assume it will work. I originally tried this with the on-board video but found the HD3200 is never going to be supported. I then threw my 5750 in there and could get native resolution of 1920x1080 but no qe ci I am buying a NVidia 9600 for $30 bucks tonight and will be trying this. My install process: Attach hdd to hackintosh with usb adaptor. install osx to formatted journaled hdd using osinstall.mpkg from retail disk. updated directly to 10.6.7 still on first hackintosh. ran myhack installer ran 10.6.7 legacy kernel installer Place hdd into new computer. Boot into osx with -v -x flags run initial setup. Reboot with only -v flag rerun 10.6.7 legacy installer to get proper force64 function for AMD machines. install smbios for 12.1 imac. Everything seems to be running properly except for the video. Hopefully with this card it will just work. my old ata dvdrw wont work even with ata kext. Hopefully this helps.
  7. I have the following board : A780GXE/128M - http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=A780GXE/128M Updated to the 1.80 bios for AM3 support for my Phenom 1055t. Used Retail install + 10.6.7 update + Legacy kernel 10.7.0 with Chameleon 2.0 RC5. Also used this http://geeknizer.com/install-snow-leopard-on-amd/ to get it to boot. It now boots but I am having trouble with the Audio,Video, Sleep, Restart, Shut down and Erasing CMOS (I admit I haven't researched the resetting CMOS but i do remember seeing a fix somewhere just cant remember where.) . From what I can see, the audio should be able to be fixed. The video is a lost caused with on board so I was thinking about just buying a good pcie card. Don't know if it is running in x64 I don't think so, but at the begging of the boot it seems to recognize all six cores. I do know its the fastest of my 5 OSX86 builds. If the video looked better it would be a great machine. I also get a kernel panic ever time I go to settings-audio and try to change something. Just to be clear -Audio shows as available but only buzzes, Video is only 1024x768. I have tried modifying the com.apple.Boot.plist with no luck. Sleep, Restart, and Shut down don't work at all. When I reboot the CMOS errors out and I have to go into the bios before boot. Thanks for any information you have! Please don't post "use the search function" because honestly I have for the past week with mixed results usually talking about leo installs and stuff from 2009. If you have had exp. with similar chipsets, please comment, if not and you want to flame me..... please go away.
  8. I did all this and yet I still don't have the ability to click Repair Disk Permissions. Its greyed out. Any Ideas?

    Nevermind. Just had to install the old usb family from pre 10.6.6 solved the issue.

    It was a much easier install process. That ionitx hackintosh is done everything working. I followed the guide for the gx620 but am now having an issue with the USB. It is not being recognized for initial install so no keyboard is present.

    Ok. Im going to try and use the first run in safe mode to do my ionitx using another forum on here. That one is a lot less hassle, Then try to follow this tut. Thanks for the info.

    Dell Optiplex GX520

    620, Pentium d legacy 10.3.0 I did this with precompiled dvd because i have no mac available hence me creating a hackintosh.. if i had one available i wouldn't be making this one in fact im trying to make this one to make another one. I only selected the required items from this tut all of which were there. Boots fine into safe mode. Panics started at first boot. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-v arch=i386</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>y</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> </dict> </plist>

    I keep getting these Kernel Panics. I wanted to ask to see if someone could pin point the problem. This only happens when I don't boot into safe mode. With safe mode, boot is accomplished. I was able to install the files necessary, everything works, (except Ethernet) due to mac issue. I have no idea how to find out what it is. Great tut, hopefully someone can guide me in the right direction. Gladpants
  14. so my main problem is that my dvd rom drive does not register under a two digit number so i cant boot to it. only thing the boot loader sees is my previous failed attempts to hackintosh this. (before i knew there were special steps for pentium 4s)
