  1. Interesting problem here: Playing videos, whether that be via Flash or HTML5 video, causes my machine to lock up and then reboot. This only happens in Safari - trying the same videos in Firefox works fine. Windows works fine regardless, so this isn't a hardware issue. Before this started, the videos were visually a garbled mess for a few minutes, or for a few browser refreshes, before starting to work fine for the rest of the booted session. (This only happened in 10.9, 10.10 worked fine.) So far, I've tried: Updating to 10.9.4 Rebooting into 10.10 DP2 and trying there (the crash still occurs) Trying to boot from Chameleon instead of Clover Trying without the patched AppleHDA Rebooting, rebooting, rebooting... My system is: Core i5 4770K Gigabyte Z87X-OC nVidia GeForce GTX 770 / nVidia GeForce GTX 560 (used for PhysX in Windows) Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 (10.9.3 did this too, as did 10.10 DP2) Clover bootloader (v2721) Kexts: FakeSMC (with plugins) Patched ALC889 AppleHDA

    Installation Guide for 10.10 DP1 - USB

    This is exactly what I needed to get it going. Thanks a lot!

    iMessage / App Store and iCloud

    Just to expand on what was said above: The trick is to ensure your on-board Ethernet is en0 - that means if you have a Wi-Fi adaptor, you'll need to disconnect it, install the Ethernet kexts, and then reboot so only the Ethernet adaptor is recognised. Once you've got Ethernet as en0 (check in Network in System Profiler), shut down, reconnect your wi-fi card, and start up again. If you have a properly configured smbios.plist, you should now be able to sign into iCloud.
  4. Nearly complete success installing Mavericks DP1 on slightly old hardware - everything is working except App Store/iMessages/iCloud etcetera. I installed using the myHack beta, and copied org.chameleon.Boot.plist, smbios.plist, and my DSDT.aml from a working Mountain Lion install. My TP-Link WDN4800 wi-fi card and Matrix Rip USB DAC worked OOTB, as did graphics. Everything feels a bit smoother than it did on Mountain Lion, and it's easily just as stable as ML. I think all my apps work too, but I'll have to use the system for a few days to confirm that. Edit: Got iCloud working!

    Jerky, Inverted Mouse on 10.5.7

    I'm afraid I honestly.cannot tell you. I just rebooted with -f yesterday and it magically worked. And then promptly didn't. I'll have to investigate what combinations of kexts worked for me and report back.

    Jerky, Inverted Mouse on 10.5.7

    Keyboard and mouse were both perfect - before installing the VoodooPS2Controller.kext, I had to unplug my keyboard from PS/2 in OSX, but I don't have to now. And, just as I predicted, the AnV kernel broke my install I'll give it a poke later, see if I can revive it, because before I restarted everything worked perfectly - even Front Row and things that normally never work.

    Jerky, Inverted Mouse on 10.5.7

    Here be my kexts. Most of them have been taken directly from a (working) Kalyway 10.5.2 installation. Anyway, yes, I'm with you - it's something to do with our processors, clearly, which can only be something like the kernel or DSDT or something like that. I did see another kernel about someplace - the AnV Kernel - which is a fork of Voodoo but supposedly with some stuff fixed. I think it may be an idea if we try that ETA1: Okay... this is odd. I just restarted with 'cpus=1 -v -f'... and it worked. Mouse is working great, Safari's New Tabs thingy works fine... However, I didn't realise until I'd started installing that AnV kernel. Oops. Although I've gone through and tried to take as much of it out as possible (not that it really matters terribly - the EFI partition overrides most of it anyway), I am absolutely certain that it won't work again after I restart!

    Interesting. I haven't touched anything to do with DSDT - to the point that I don't really understand it or what it's for - so any help there would be much appreciated! I'll attempt to apply a little Google-Fu to the situation myself, as well, to see if I can't find a fix too.

    Jerky, Inverted Mouse on 10.5.7

    Thank you, but I have been running Voodoo since before I even installed - Vanilla doesn't even run on my box because it's AMD.
  10. Recently, I installed Mac OS X 10.5.6 from a retail disc, updating it to 10.5.7 - all worked after a few days of trying - and today, I decided to install the one thing I was afraid to try: graphics drivers. So, I decided to go down the route of EFI strings, adding them to my /Extra/com.apple.boot.plist file. Rebooted, crossed fingers, and was greeted with full resolution, but no QE/CI. I also had a really jerky mouse - it stuttered everywhere and was virtually uncontrollable. So, in pursuit of a solution to that problem, I booted with cpus=1, and was greeted - to my surprise - with full QE/CI and an almost fixed mouse. Now, however, it is actually inverted - move it up, cursor goes down - and is still very unresponsive and jerky. The interesting thing is that the mouse is fine for about two or three seconds when the OS first boots, after the dock and menu appear. Then it goes wild for a few seconds, and eventually settles down into a jerky, inverted setting. I have already pulled the AppleUpstreamClient.kext - I forget the exact name - and tried setting my FSB via boot flags, which is still in effect. I also have to boot with -legacy, or it doesn't start. Another interesting effect is that if I attempt to do anything graphically-intensive, like opening a new tab in Safari 4 (because of the Top Sites thing, which utilizes a 3D interface), the computer will lock up - but the mouse will still work. And it'll work properly. When this happens, I'll have full, proper mouse control for about 5 seconds, then the screen will flash black, and the problem will return, and then another five seconds will pass, the screen will flash black, and the mouse will work properly. Etcetera, etcetera. I've completely exhausted my Google-Fu here, so, anyone got any suggestions? OS X 10.5.7 - Retail install with Boot132/Chameleon AMD 64 X2 5200+ Processor Foxconn/Winfast 6150M2MA mobo (nForce) nVidia GeForce 9500 GT - 512MB DDR3 Microsoft USB Intellimouse Explorer
  11. So, I've got myself a spare PC. It once ran Tiger, and I'd like to try again with Leopard now. After conferring with some folks in chat, I hear that I probably won't be able to use a distro that requires EFI, as I have an AMD processor. Is this true, and if so, can I still use the Kalyway DVD that I'm presently downloading? Which releases CAN I use if I can't? I'll attach my system specs as soon as I can get hold of them Thanks for any help, Database ETA: Added right terminology.

    Ouch. That's not very promising. Thanks for the help.

    OK, so I'm installing OSx86. All going unsmoothly so far, but it's working, just... but now I'm starting my first boot into OS X Tiger (Deadmoo edition) and am running into trouble. It won't start. After pressing F8, and using the -v parameter, I am getting the following output from the terminal: My specs are: AMD Athlon XP 2600+ 2Ghz processor 2GB RAM nForce2 mobo (I know this'd make a difference) 1GB of RAM 60GB IDE Hard drive, which is set as primary, and is dualbooting Linux. Need anything else?
