    Mac osx on Dell Latitude E5400

    When you ran Iatkos did you install ApplePS2 or VoodooPS2? If no, that's your problem. I recently did a dell inspiron and the best way to do this after the fact (because every voodoo PS2 I downloaded from the internet seemed to have some problems with the update) was run iatkos 10.5.7 install disk. Deselect every option except for Voodoo PS2 with trackpad plugin (this legacy versions works great on dells) before you do this it's best to remove applesPS2nub, applePS2keyboard and applePS2trackpad from System/Library/Extensions, if they exist or /Extra/Extensions if they exist. good luck -wobbly

    Sleep just never works

    hmmm... If your behavior doesn't change at all with the kexts then I would think maybe you have not installed them properly. Get Kext Utility. Copy the kexts into /Extra folder (you may have to do this in Terminal if you don't have a show all files application). Make sure there are no duplicates of the kexts in /System/Library/Extensions/ (this is more of a neatness issue to keep your bootloader from reading them twice) Then run Kext Utility. I imagine after you do this then the system may attempt to sleep but not wake up. If that happens then do this: get DSDTSE and try to apply the very first hack in the list. My brain is farting and i can't remember the name but it's the one you paste directly before _WAC Then apply the RTC hack. Also make sure you have "execute bit diasble" enabled in your bios. If that still doesn't work try removing AppleHPET.kext from your /System/Library/Extensions folder. (don't delete it just move it somewhere, put it back if it doesn't help) If that doesn't work then I'd say don't use sleep, use hibernate open a terminal and type: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0. This will cause your computer to power off and save all the ram contents to disk. It's not quite sleep, but it's an effective workaround. Good luck!

    Install IATKOS

    What hardware are you running. AMD or Intel?
  4. Hmmm... It has been brought to my attention that you might've wiped out the Voodoo Kernel which came with your iPC when you installed the update. I forget who sent me the message, but he's right. If you got a Kernel update you'll need to install a Voodoo Kernel from somewhere. It wouldn't have gotten to the Apple screen if it wiped out your bootloader. I spoke too soon. Make a little search for the lasest Voodoo Kernel. I think it's XNU 9.5.0 I would refresh your iPC install. Run that combo update again, and then before rebooting run the Voodoo XNU 9.5.0 package. Should work. I'm not as adept at 10.5 as i am at 10.6 though. Nor AMD as I am at Intel. Sorry for my mispeak.
  5. Yea you got yourself a kernel update and it wiped out your bootloader. Install Chameleon to the MBR of your hard drive.

    backup psystar boot drive help please.

    Getchaself a new drive. Make two partitions with an OSX install disk. Clonezilla your old files to one partition. Reinstall using OSX retail DVD and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Then when it asks where you want to copy your files from at first set up screen select the backed up partition. Either that or put both drives in and install fresh copy and just select the old drive when it asks where to copy your files from, and hope it doesn't die before you get a new install up and running.
  7. "It seems like my Chameleon bootloader fails on the NVenabler.kext that I installed for my 9800GTX+ videocard. Please help me complete my installation on my Asus P5KPL-VM motherboard, this is the very last step that I need to achieve." This is a red herring. The kext is not needed but there is no harm i nhaving it. The problem is the bootloader that was installed is not compatible with your system. Otherwise you wouldn't have needed Empire EFI to boot the distro. Boot into OSX with Empire EFI and install [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. If you can boot with Empire EFI you can boot from the HD with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Good luck!

    Hackintosh Laptop - No clue what to do?

    Delete the Bootloader OSX option. Reinstall... select the option that says MBR, not the EFI one. As for the graphics go to your com.boot.apple.plist under <your partition name>/System/Library/Extra edit that by adding <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> See what that gets ya.

    Help installing OS X 10.6

    Re download Iatkos. You got yourself a bad file there. As for hanging at the Grey Apple screen, I've never gotten a distro to boot properly on a bunch of different machines. Even trying -x -v etc etc. So what I do which works like a charm is use [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] 3.0 Supported to boot any distro. Even though the distro has it's own booter on there, [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] is the most compatible and up to date for using Intel Hardware. Empire EFI works the same way, but I typically use that for AMD machines. Some things to try first: Reset your BIOS settings to optimal defaults or defaults Change SATA drive to AHCI mode for your SATA drives. For that matter make sure you're using a SATA hard drive. Make sure Execute Bit Disable option is set to Enable in BIOS (it should be by default) Set your boot priority options to your CD Drive first and your Hard drive second press F8 as soon as the CD boots, then type -v, and press enter see what kinda error you're getting and then google it Like I said. This never works for me, but it's necessary to try before doing the following... you're probably booting fine and then it just hangs some where, and there doesn't appear to be any problems when you use the -v option So: 1. Download and burn [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] 2. Boot from the CD. 3. Once the screen loads, put in your distro CD. 4. Wait a moment. 5. Press F5. 6. Select your distro and go. If you can, select a Chameleon Bootloader option for your bootloader when you're installing the Os. If not. Just use [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] to boot into the installation when it's done and install [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]. If [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] worked for the CD, [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] will work for your hard drive.

    Installing Mac Os X Leopard on a Compaq v3000

    Try Iatkos. It includes a driver that sees most hard drives that run on non-standard controllers. Check your BIOS to see if you can enable AHCI. If you cannot the IAtkos CD seems to work pretty well at finding them anyway. If the Iatkos CD doesn't boot, try using Empire EFI CD to boot. Then switch the CD and press F5. This should boot IAtkos. Make sure you use a version that is compatible with AMD.

    Successful Installation, but...

    Check your BIOS and see if Execute Bit Disable is enabled... Once your sure of that just use the I-boot CD to get back into your install. Did you use Easy Beast mode and nothing else If not try that.

    Newbie help

    Use your AOpen board and one of the P4s. Preferable the fastest. Boot with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] 3.0 supported and a retail CD. Partition your drive to GUID for this. Should be no problem. Make sure the BIOS supports AHCI (if not update and it should be so) and you Enable the Execute Bit Disabled option. Get yourself a top of the line AGP video card that's Nvidia (super cheap because they're AGP) and it should be pretty simple. Use a SATA drive, it's easier that way. Good luck! Oh no AGP expansion. I guess get yourself the best PCI video card you can find then. hopefully that onboard video works....

    Intel Core I7 Hackintosh - Snow Leopard

    What method are you using to install?
  15. Okay so I just built a hackintosh pro for about half the price of the actual system, running Snow Leopard 10..6.4 This system is about $3800 dollars before tax and shipping if you order it from Apple: -Supermicro X8DAL-3 running two Westmere 5600 series 2.4Ghz quad core i5 based Xeons -8 GB (2GB x 4) Patriot ECC enabled RAM (4 for each processor bus) -Board has two Intel 82574L network adapter which are supported in OSX (must add hardware -address pointer in IONetworkingFamily/Intel 82574L kext) -Realtek AC97 sound works out of box -Bluetooth Dongle (LINKSYS USBBT100 USB 1.1 wired inside to motherboard for aesthetics) -Gigabyte Geforce 9800 GT 1 GB GDDR3 video card -1 TB WD Hard Drive (for Snow backup, Win XP, Win 7, and Ubuntu) -500 GB WD Hard Drive (for Snow Leopard, Win XP backup, Win 7 backup + Plus 1 NTFS formatted Universal drive to be accessed by all OSs) 4 OSs using Windows 7 Boot Manager: -OSX (on a separate 500gb GUID partitioned drive using [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] 3.0 supported and a retail 10.6.3 DVD + Mac Software update + [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]) -Windows 7 -Windows XP -Ubuntu Studio 64bit with all options and realtime kernel Acceleration works with either NVenabler kext or GraphicsEnabler=Yes Sleep works with SleepEnabler kext Ext2 support works with extfs Umm... not much more to say. It was pretty easy. The only big problem is booting that many operation systems at once in a nice easy way. Win 7 loader's the best. Tried to do it with Chameleon, but it's hard to get it to not register all the drives and you still have to select Win7 or XP when you load either Windows drive. Also to get it to recognize linux you have to create a primary partition somewhere for the Ubuntu bootloader which is difficult when you format an MBR disk with Snow Leopard because it makes so many little EFI and extra space partitions and primary partitions are only the first 3. It's not worth it. Windows 7 bootloader can do all beautifully. So yea... it's worth it to build a hack pro. I see it tossed around a lot that it'll be just as expensive as a Mac Pro. No... its half price. This cost $2000 with shipping (overnight delivery even!) and tax all at Newgg (except for a cooling fan and hard drive I bought at Fry's which was probably more expensive) Works beautifully. Boots any of the OSs in about 20 seconds. Recognizes CPUs as 2.4ghz Intel Core i5 Tested graphics with Tales of Monkey Island. Ran at highest quality at any resolution. Installed an episode in 10 seconds. Loaded it in 5. No joke this thing is great. Wish I wasn't building it for someone else... Good bye awesome computer!
