  2. Hey everyone, i recently installed osx leopard on this machine. it went so well that i even made a guide and posted it in the tutorials ( genius bar ) and i guess im waiting on mod approval. anyways, i have read some posts about how on my laptop, once you go past 2.5gb ram, it just wont boot. i tried this with a 2gb stick and a 1gb stick i currently have inside ( it has 1.5gb ) and it didnt boot, yet when i use the 2gb and the 512mb stick it boots no problems. does anyone know how to fix this? also boot with the flag ( something like max memory i think) maxmemory= 3072 or w/e doest work either. any help?
  3. Hey everyone, today im going to walk you through installing Leopard on your 5600. First of all I would like to say thanks to a member poopmonkey. Though he didnt directly help me, by reading alot of his topics I was able to determine what needed to be done to install OSX on this laptop. I will number this in steps. Enjoy, and don't forget to thank me if it worked. Also I'm going to assume you are using windows before proceeding. Step 1: Get yourself a copy of "iDeneb_v1.6_1058_Lite_Edition". Burn the iso with imgburn ( nice free program for windows, burn it nice and slow ( 4x is a great speed ). Ideneb should be available at your favorite sites. Step 2: After burning the iso. pop it into your 5600, boot from cd, NO NEED TO BOOT INTO ADVANCE OPTIONS. Let it load everything it needs to and eventually you will get into the installation screen ( this should take less than 10 mins ) Step 3:Open up Disk Utility and format your hard drive as GUID, 1 partion, mac os x extended journaled. Name the partition something nice and easy ( I called mine "leopard" ). let it format and continue Step 4: Hit install, agree, etc etc, pick the hard drive we just formatted. MAKE SURE YOU HIT CUSTOMIZE and make sure only these are ticked: -iDeneb main system -Bootloader>chameleon v2 ***-Kernal> 9.8.0 vanilla *( only pick this if previous install wont let you boot up, if no problems booting leave unticked -Essential patches: >apple decrypt >disabler >dsdt patcher >time machine fix >open halt restart - ps/2 > voodoo ps2 trackpad >about this mac fix >system profiler fix -Drivers>audio>voodoo HDA ***-Drivers>chipset>AHCI SATA/IDE *( only pick this if previous install wont let you boot up, if no problems booting leave unticked -Drivers>system management>voodoo battery manager -Drivers>video>intel>GMA950> 950 Laptop -Clean up Step 5: once it finishes installing and boots up, boot with flag " cpus=1 " and proceed with the welcome screen, etc etc etc. Step 6: *Credit goes to poopmonkey here* Find yourself a link to downlaod bbedit for leopard. Edit your com.apple.Boot.plist which is located in Library>Preferences>SystemConfiguration. You should see something that looks like this: <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> <key>Boot Graphics</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Quiet Boot</key> <string>No</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> </dict> </plist> Edit the space between <string></string> by adding idlehalt=0. it should look like this after: <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>idlehalt=0</string> <key>Boot Graphics</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Quiet Boot</key> <string>No</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> </dict> </plist> * Note: that if your missing some parts of that code ITS OKAY. I didnt have part of it, but i still edited what I needed. * Note: You can now take the time to shorten how long it takes chameleon to load by editing this: <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> change the 5 to however many seconds you want. Step 7: Plug it into ethernet, hit apple software update, and update everything you can ( might take two reboots). You're Finished!!! Enjoy your new leopard laptop. * Dont forget to give credit where credit is due

    alright thanks, ive been reading another users posts (poopmonkey) His Topics. and from what i gather his laptop is very close to mine, im currently downloading the ideneb 10.5.8 lite he talks about. im going to try that while this gets resolved. also booting my 10.6.3 install ( installed with iatkos s3) if i use the arch=i386 -f -v command ( recommended by malad0n ) i get it to boot into the welcome video, i hear the sound, but i cant get video. only a white/silver screen.
  5. hey everyone, ive been trying to install os x on this laptop for some time now and what a nightmare. its an acer aspire 5600, and yes i did use search. i found this old thread on this laptop after a bit of tinkering i decided i wanted atleast snow leo so i tried iAtkos S3. tinkered with different settings, and nothing. i installed it, booted and KP, then i tried booting with -v. and its stuck with " System uptime in nanoseconds: 13257348899". I'm willing to try any other distro aslong as i can install the iso/dmg to my flashdrive ( to boot from) please any help would be appreciated. I know my cpu only supports 32 bit so im not concerned about that. cpu is: Intel Core Duo T2050 mobo chipset: i945GM southbridege: 82801GHM (ICH7-M/U) 1.5gb Ram DDR2

    Mods please close this thread, I see that lion wont run on my cpu. I read that only Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 or Xeon processor can run Lion. if so as i said, please close this thread
