  1. Thank you for your reply. After sleepless nights I have given up on the retail disk approach and have opted to install via iPC 10.5.6 which works a treat once all required kext are selected on install. There has been success upgrading iPC with iDeneb combo which I will be doing this afternoon. At the moment only issue I have is my front audio port not working. I have posted regarding this issue.
  2. Hi All After failing to install using the retail disk, I have downloaded iAtkos v7 & iPC 10.5.6. In the end I installed iPC with the following kext: Base PC: Dell Dimension 5000 (P4 550 3.4GHz) - 9.5.0 Voodoo kernel - Titan video driver (installed from iAtkos v7 DVD and had to add Device ID, Natit did not work) - Intel ICHx SATA drivers - AC97 Audio - AppleBCM440X Ethernet - Patched USB Drivers - Seatbelt.kext 10.5.5 - Finder 10.5.5 + keyboard.prepane - AppleSMBIOS ToH - System Profiler fix (cannot remeber name of the kext/file) After all of the above the system works like a treat, rear audio and USB work, VGA works with CI/QE, front panel USB ports work. The only problem I have now is that I am getting nothing from the front audio, bot out or mic input. I do not know if I need to enable anything in OSX (or how) or if I need a kext to fix the issue. Thank you in advance for your help
  3. Thank you for the advice, at least now I can see the content of the .img :-) I have managed to find a post with a non vanilla kernel, however now I seem to be having the same issue. I am going to try iATKOS and see were that takes me first and see what I can change once/if I get an OSX running. I am still keen to hear any advise so please provide any info you can as I would rather have a retail version installed.
  4. Hello After talking to my friend who is a mac user and discovering pretty good alternatives to windows software that would do the job on a mac I decided to give it a blast and a thorough evaluation before I were to build an up to date PC/hackintosh (mine is overdue an upgrade) or buy a mac. My current setup is a Dell Dimension 5000: Processor: Pentium 4 550 3.4GHz (Prescott LGA775) RAM: 1.5GB DDR2 (2x 512MB + 2x 256MB) Motherboard Chipset: Intel 915G Graphics: PCIe 16x nVidia GeForce 6800 (Mobo has onboard graphics available) Audio: Onboard (SoundMAX) Network: Onboard Ethernet My friend gave me his retail copy of Leopard 10.5.6 and I have burned the boot-132 generic.iso. I can run the bootloader, however when I swap the disk to the retail DVD, its starts loading stuff but then just reboots my PC. I have tried to have a look for a solution and some mention modifying the initrd.img file to include dsmos.kext and mach kernel sse2 (which i thought it already has if theese are crucial files). Problem is I only have full access to windows and linux and have tried everything to extract or edit the .img file with no joy. I am really new to this and to osx and would be extremely grateful if somebody could help me with this please.
