  1. SL 10.6.7 on Asrock G31M-S About this guide This is a quick tutorial to get Snow Leopard 10.6.7 working on Asrock G31M-S. As I was in trouble trying to configure this motherboard so I will explain every step as precisely as possible. Additionally, when I started to try installing OSX on PCs, I would have appreciated some beginners tutorials. This is one of them. Some steps may be accomplished with another solution, don't hesitate to contact me if you can improve this thread. For example, maybe USBBusFix is available with Chameleon RC4, so you won't have to disable USB Legacy. As i'm not a native english speaker, don't hesitate to PM me if there are misspellings in this topic. USB Issues The Asrock G31M-S is based on a ICH7 southbridge. According to this topic, the ICH7 southbridge is in conflict with USB Controller, which won't allow you to boot OSX correctly (you'll get a HPET error). To fix it, we will first disable USB Legacy in BIOS Settings. What does this mean ? USB Legacy is used to allow USB HID (Human Interface Device) like a keyboard or a mouse to be emulated as PS/2 devices. With this enabled, you are able to use your keyboard with bootloaders that don't support USB devices (e.g: GRUB, or even boot device selection). As we will initially disable LegacyUSB, you need a real PS/2 keyboard (or a USB keyboard with a USB->PS/2 adapter) to select items on boot steps. After installing the latest Chameleon Bootloader, we will bypass this limitation adding a boot option with Lizard. What doesn't work For now, I wasn't able to set up the Realtek Audio card. I'll update this thread when it will be done. What you need A PS/2 Keyboard or a USB Keyboard with USB->PS/2 adapter A blank recordable DVD iAtkos v2 s3 (google it), which is a MAC OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.3 patched to work with Intel/AMD processors Two internal hard disks. One for Windows (this is important), one for MAC OSX. Apple SL 10.6.7 Combination Update Modified 1.80 bios Lizard which allows you to easily modify boot options [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (requires registration) which is a post-installation program containing drivers and patches Chameleon RC5 (requires registration), which is a bootloader that will allow us to bypass the USB Legacy limitation Macdrive (not free) which allows you to access HFS+ (journaled) drives Step 1 - Prepare your computer Connect your PS/2 keyboard Boot on your Windows Drive. Burn iAtkos v2 s3 ISO to your blank DVD, using any DVD burner program, like DeepBurner Extract the modified 1.80 BIOS on your hard disk root (C:\) Install Macdrive Restart your computer and press F6 when it's rebooting. If you don't get a screen like this, try rebooting and pressing F2, then go to the Smart section Follow this instructions to flash your BIOS, select the 1.30 modified BIOS. When it's done, enter your BIOS with F2, and go to Advanced -> USB Configuration. Disable USB Legacy pressing enter on this item and selecting Disabled with arrow keys. Save settings pressing F10. This will reboot your computer. Step 2 - Install Snow Leopard While your computer is rebooting, press F11 to choose a boot drive Select your DVD drive, and press enter A boot menu should appear (Chameleon RC4). Press F8, select iAtkos volume, type -v, and press enter. Several white lines on a black screen will appear, this is normal. It took me almost five minutes to boot. If you get a line like "HPET: probeHPET() failed", you must have forgot to disable USB Legacy (see the end of Step 1). When the installation screen appear, select your language, and click on Next. Go to Utilities (at the top of the screen) -> Disk Utility. Select your OSX destination drive, select the Partition tab Create 2 partitions, one named "osx" (the first one) with default values, and the other named "shared" not journaled (if you want to access it from Linux for example) Apply modifications, and quit Disk Utility. Click on Continue, and select "osx". Click on "Customize", uncheck VoodooHDA (sound driver), uncheck the first bootloader, check Chameleon RC5. Apply settings, and install OSX. Step 3 - Update and configure OSX When the OSX installation is done, reboot and press F11. Select your Windows Drive. If you correctly installed Macdrive, you should be able to see "osx" and "shared" in "My computer". Go to "shared" and move every downloaded files from "What you need" here, except iAtkos, your BIOS, and MacDrive. Reboot your computer, press F11, select OSX drive Type boot option "-v", ("-x -v" if it doesn't work) which will boot OSX in verbose (and safe) mode When you're done with creating an account, install Apple Combo Restart, F11, "-v" Install Chameleon RC5, don't reboot. Launch [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and select only "Realtek Gigabit Ethernet" (this is for your network card). Don't reboot. Launch Lizard, go to the Options tab, select USBBusFix, and click on Save (confirm if Boot.plist isn't found). This will allow you to boot with USB Legacy mode. Reboot, press F2, and enable USB Legacy. Now, everything should work normally

  3. Ok now I can't boot at all I removed my DSDT and restored Boot.plist, but it's stuck at the middle of the boot. I'll reinstall OSX from zero. Thanks anyway
  4. Oh, sorry, I forgot to enable HPET in BIOS. Now, OSX boots with the new DSDT, but only when LegacyUSB is disabled in BIOS. When it isn't, i get a really weird Chameleon: I tried to enable the two options in Lizard, but it doesn't change anything (as I suppose they are boot options, it's normal). Any chance to get it boot with USBLegacy enabled in BIOS ? Again, thanks for everything !
  5. I followed these steps: - Removed EvOreboot and Disabler - Extracted dsdt.aml to /Extra folder - Installed Chameleon RC5 from here - Added the four lines you indicated I get a kernel Panic with the following content: This happens even if I disable USBLegacy in BIOS Settings, or use USBLegacyOff=Yes in bootloader options. If I restore Disabler.kext, everything is ok. Any idea ? Thank you very much for your great help !

  7. [RESOLU] Powercolor HD 4850 et SL 10.6.7

    J'ai finalement réussi à la faire fonctionner, mais uniquement via la sortie HDMI avec un câble HDMI->DVI. Pour les détails, voir l'un des liens ci-dessous: - http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.6.7#ATI - http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=257636 Bonne journée à tous, et merci pour vos réponses !
  8. [SOLVED] Powercolor HD 4850 HDMI/VGA/HDMI and SL 10.6.7

    Well, I have good news. I was able to get it working with QE/CI at 1920x1080, but it can only display on HDMI port with a HDMI->DVI cable: - Install iAtkos v2 s3 with PC_EFI 10.6 bootloader - Update to 10.6.7 Apple Combined Update - Run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and select ATI 48xx Device Injector + ATI 48xx Patch (from graphic driver section) and Apple Boot Screen (from Boot options section). I updated the http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.6.7#ATI with these details. Thanks for your help anyway
  9. Hello ! I was able to set up Snow Leopard 10.6.7 on my Asrock G31M-S successfully. However, I have to disable Legacy USB from BIOS settings or USB 2.0 to make OSX start. Otherwise, I get a HPET error. I read on this topic that this issue would be related to a ICH7/USB 2.0 conflict. I also heard that it is possible to edit DSDT to maybe fix this kind of HPET error, but I really don't know where I should start from. So my question is quite simple: is this a hardware limitation ? - If yes, I guess I won't be able to solve it ... ? - If no, how can I fix it ? Regards, Loïs
  10. [RESOLU] Powercolor HD 4850 et SL 10.6.7

    Je viens d'essayer ceci en installant les 3 kexts avec Kext Helper et en lançant un coup de Kext Utility. Je boot avec GraphicsEnabler=Yes et j'obtiens un écran noir avec des carrés gris. Je précise que mon bootloader est Chameleon RC5. Est-ce que l'installation de PC EFI pourrait changer quoi que ce soit ? Merci pour ta proposition, en tout cas
  11. Hello ! I'm have some troubles trying to configure a Powercolor HD 4850 512mb DVI/VGA/HDMI with SL 10.6.7. From a basic iAtkos v2 s3 (10.6.3), I only get a gray screen with some artefacts and no mouse. I can boot with +x. After updating to 10.6.7 with apple combo, I set up netkas QE_CI exotic cards which contains my device-id. I only get a black screen, on every port. I know some people succeeded in configuring it, but no one bothered to clearly explain how he did. So I'm refering to your experience and advices and I hope you'll be able to help me out. Regards, Loïs
  12. Bonsoir à tous ! Voilà j'ai de gros problèmes pour configurer une Powercolor HD 4850 512mb DVI/VGA/HDMI sous SL 10.6.7. Jusqu'à présent, en partant d'une iAtkos v2 s3, j'obtient soit un écran gris plein d'artefacts, soit un écran noir lorque j'installe quelques kext. Rien de plus lorsque j'installe QE_CI Exotic Cards pour 10.6.7, et mon device id est bien dans le Info.plist de ce kext. Je sais que certains ont pu installer cette carte avec plus ou moins de succès, mais aucun n'a pris la peine d'expliquer clairement les étapes pour y parvenir. J'en appelle donc à vos connaissances et à vos conseils pour tenter de m'en sortir Bonne soirée, Loïs PS: mobo: Asrock G31-MS
  13. No signal with latest Natit for 4850, under 10.5.7

    That's very sad. I think lots of people have the same problem but don't bother making a post. Please if someone knows the solution, tell us !
  14. Hi there ! First of all, please excuse my english, I know it's poor I tried to setup HD4850 drivers under 10.5.7 (iAtkos) using lastet Natit from netkas. After reboot, my screen looses signal, on each graphic outputs (VGA, DVI, and HDMI). I have a PowerColor ATI HD4850 512ddr3. I can boot under a clean install of 10.5.7 and get basic 1024*768 resolution, but none of the solutions explained of the forum worked for me. I know this problem is common one, so I would appreciate if someone could help me to get it working I got these cables: - DVI male => DVI male - HDMI male => DVI male - VGA male => VGA male I don't have any DVI => VGA or something like that. Have a nice evening, ldiqual
