    What edits did you make to the one in the plugin folder in IONetworkfamily, exactly? I have the same NIC in my Dell T3500 and I can't get it to work.

    D945GCLF2 Snow Leopard

    Hi FilterPunk, I booted this image and I see a white screen with an image of a DVD in the center. The boot CD spins down, I put the snow leopard retail disc in, and then nothing happens. I push F5, return, everything I can think of, it just sits there. Am I missing something? TIA,

    No, this post was very helpful. I'll try this though it will probably be a couple of days before I can get access to a running mac again to re-tweak the install image. Thanks.

    Yeah, sure I'm interested. I don't mind wading around a bit but the terminology is confusing. I read about needing kexts or other stuff but there's no easy way for me to figure out how to get those kexts loaded onto something I can actually boot. I figured the lifehacker thing had a low probability of working out of the box, but from what I've read the D945GCLF2 works pretty well with various 10.5 distros so I figured there was a shot. If I need to add stuff to the install image I have, I'm fine with that. I just need some pointers. There's a lot of info here and in other places, sorting through it is hard.

    Is chameleon something I install from a working OSX machine? I need more handholding I guess.
  6. I have an intel D945GCLF2 system (atom N330). I have a retail snow leopard DVD. I have tried the lifehacker "install snow leopard no hacking required" method. I got the DVD image copied to my USB drive, but it doesn't boot. I have tried the method described here: http://doctorevil30564.blogspot.com/2009/0...hackintosh.html this method seems to be intended to be used with 10.5. I get the boot132 CD booted, pop in the snow leopard DVD, and it seems like it starts reading it, but hangs at "loading Darwin/x86" Has anyone gotten 10.6 running on this hardware?

    OK, maybe I should take a different approach. Is there a better way to get snow leopard installed on this mobo? I have the install DVD, I have another mac I can access if necessary to modify stuff, but it's at my cousin's house, so that's less than optimal. I have Fedora Linux installed on another machine here locally. From googling chemeleon, it does not appear to be trivial to install.

    Hi guys, I am a OS X noob. I have this motherboard and I am trying to install snow leopard on it. I have followed the lifehacker how-to here: http://lifehacker.com/5360150/install-snow...acking-required When I boot my USB drive, I just get a flashing cursor. I think this may be a problem with my boot loader. But after reading this thread it seems I may need to do some other tweaking to the install image on my USB drive? If I do need to repair the bootloader what's the best way to do that? Use diskutil in OSX? I have access to my cousin's imac for anything I need to do from OSX. Thanks.
  9. Hi, I've been reading various walk-throughs, how-tos, etc and they all seem to be based on the assumption that you have access to a working OSX machine to begin with. How do I install OSX86 without having any OSX machine? FWIW, I have no working Windows machines, either, though I can get access to one if necessary. I do have several working Linux machines on site with me. I would like to install snow leopard on a box with the Intel BOXD945GCLF2 motherboard (Mini-ITX w/ Atom 330 processor). I have an apple store nearby, so if buying an installation DVD would help I can do that. If it would be easier to start with 10.5.x, I am willing to do that as well. Installing from a USB thumbdrive would be ideal (the machine I want to install onto has no DVD drive, though I could hook one up temporarily if needed). Anyone who can just get me started with a how-to that addresses my situation, I would appreciate it. Thanks,
