  1. Hi all, After a 100% successfull install of Leo4all v3 (Leopard 10.5.2), I rebooted and got greeted with an HFS+ partition error, which I fixed by using the terminal command fdisk -u /dev/rdisk0, which I've used before several times. Well, upon reboot I get greeted with the infamous "Still waiting for root device error". I just had Kalyway 10.5.2 working a couple days ago, so I don't think it's a problem with my HDD / IDE setup. I notice a line that mentions UUID before I get the root error, so I think maybe I need to format my partition to be GUID instead of MBR? The problem is, unless you are formatting the whole disk it won't let me specify MBR or GUID. Is there any way to set my Leopard partition to GUID without formatting the whole disk? - Thanks
  2. Hi all, I'm attempting to get my PCI sound to work on my Hackintosh that's got Kalyway 10.5.2 on it. I've got a SB Audigy 2 and I'm trying to use the drivers from the sticky Here. The drivers themselves install fine, and the kX drivers detect my sound card correctly. However, I hear no sound unless I do the speaker test then I hear a crackle. I've tried a number of suggestions from the OP of the sticky, but nothing has helped. One thing that is mentioned, though, is the "Intel ICH and PIIX Controller" which after doing some research seems to be some kind of PCI driver. I don't remember if this was included on the install DVD for Kalyway -- could it be possible that I'm lacking proper PCI bus drivers on my system which are causing these symptoms? How could I go about finding these drivers for an AMD system? Would upgrading to 10.5.3 help - Thanks
  3. Hi, I installed these drivers on a Kalyway 10.5.2 install, but I cannot seem to get any sound. I disabled my built-in AC97 audio, deleted the AC97 and other kexts that were noted to conflict in the first post (and updated the boot cache). The software itself is running, and detects my SB Audigy 2 ZS [9000] but I still don't hear anything. What can I do? It says in the first post to make sure that "Intel ICH and PIIX Controller" was checked during setup. How can I see if I have these, and if not how can I install it? - Thanks for your help *EDIT* I hear of some people talking about a "edspctrl" command, could that help me? Also, the OP says that it 'works on' 10.5.3, but what about 10.5.2? I've already had to reformat my OSX install twice for minor things like this, I wouldn't think much changed in 0.0.1 versions.
  4. Hi all, I'm trying to install Kalyway 10.5.2 however I receive an error that the essentials package failed verification. The DVD was burned at 2x, and passed the verification check so I have no reason to believe something is wrong with the DVD. A post In this thread mentioned that installing from a USB key might circumvent this problem because it is much faster. I have a tool for formatting my USB key to boot, but I cannot extract the contents of the Kalyway image... I've tried MagicISO but I get errors even if I choose not to include the HFS+ specific files. Is there any way I can do this without having a mac? I mean, if I had a Mac i probably wouldn't be sitting here spending hours installing Leopard on a PC. What are the other possible causes of packing validation failing? - Thanks
  5. Ok I'll try that. I think it may be a hardware problem on my end but I'm not sure though. I can boot to XP / Vista without problems...
  6. Hi all, I'm attempting to install 10.5.2 Kalyway on my PC. But, I'm having issues with lockups / shut offs. The first time I went to install, I booted with the -v command, and everything went fine. I got to the welcome screen, chose my language, and went to disk manager to make a partition on the 10GB of unallocated space I made on my drive. Well, it started analyzing the drives for a bit then just froze. I could still move my mouse, but it was no longer spinning the "busy" wheel. So i tried again... several times. Now it will either shut-off or lock up right after analyzing my disk drive in the command screen (before the install), or I'll get to the install and before I choose my language BAM a shut off. It seems after my first attempt I can rarely even get to the installer anymore. I am using a WD 160GB IDE drive as primary master (jumper set accordingly) and my DVD drive as secondary master, with jumper set accordingly. I don't see a lot of settings in my BIOS that should affect this, but I set suspend mode to S3 and disabled my SATA controllers just to be safe. Has anyone experienced this symptom before? My hardware is as follows: Gigabyte GA-M55SLI-S4 AM2 motherboard AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ CPU (Supports SSE, and SSE2, not sure about SSE3 so I'll have to look again). nVidia GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 1GB G.Skill PC6400 RAM SB Audigy 2 ZS; motherboard also includes AC97 audio WD 160GB IDE with 1 NTFS partition, and 10GB unallocated - Thanks for any help!
