  1. Also have a Pentium D and I am waiting anxiously for a solution to install it on my computer. Any updates?
  2. I have the exact same CPU on my machine and I'd like to install Lion on it. Is there a Kernel out yet that supports us? I'm currently running 10.6.8 without a single issue. Everything works. Really want to update though...
  3. I just installed Lion Developer Preview 4 on my real Macbook. I've got a 13" Core 2 duo 2.0 Ghz model. After the installation, my built-in isight camera is not detected. Has anyone else experienced this with Lion? I'm wondering if it's Lion or if my camera is broken. It worked with Snow Leopard before the upgrade.
  4. OS X 10.7 Lion with Pentium D CPU?

    Ok. Figured it was something along those lines. I'm not an idiot when it comes to computers and installing software and I've learned a lot from messing around with Snow Leopard on my PC. I figured it might be the kernel, but wanted to make sure. I'll keep an eye out for some new kernels after it's officially released.
  5. I'd love to install Lion on my PC. I've got Snow Leopard working flawlessly. I've tried installing Lion using multiple methods. Whenever I try to boot my install media, I get a little bit of text and then it just goes to a black screen. Could this be related to my processor (Pentium D)? Here is my overall Hardware Setup: - CPU: Intel Pentium D 3.0 Ghz - RAM: 2 GB DDR2 800 Mhz - Video: Geforce 8800 GT 1 GB - Chipset: Intel - HD: 250 GB SATA 7200 RPM with GUID Partition Really looking forwards to trying Lion. I had no problems at all with installing Snow Leopard. Any advice would be appreciated!
  6. Chameleon-Lion Install Tutorial?

    The main Lion thread has a ton of pages that reference people installing it using Chameleon and a Netkas file to install.
  7. I see that people are having a lot of luck installing Lion using Chameleon RC3. However, I haven't found a tutorial describing how to set it up with that method. I'm guessing that this is a super-easy thing to do, so people aren't going into a lot of detail outlining how it's done. I did my SL install using iatkos, so I'm not as fluent in the other methods. I would really appreciate some instruction on how to install Lion using chameleon as people have been mentioning. I've got my internal HD and a 4 GB USB Stick available to me. I was planning on prepping my Lion install on a separate partition and using the USB Stick for my bootloader. If this idea will not work, please let me know. I would appreciate any advice that you guys can provide!
  8. How to install OSX Lion Preview

    I'm also running into the same issue with the white blinking cursor at bootup. I did have the option to disable the serial port in my BIOS and I've already done that. I unplugged my USB Drive and plugged it back in. It still goes to the blinking cursor. So I'm wondering if I prepared the USB drive correctly. Is it supposed to be formatted a certain way prior to running the XBC Boot Tool? The instructions say "Put “bootdisk” content in the usb dongle". Am I supposed to drag the whole "bootdisk" folder to the USB or am I supposed to put the contents of the folder (EFI Folder, Efildr20 file) in the root of the USB Drive? With the last step, it says to take dsdt.aml that is in the efi/xpc folder and put it on the USB drive. So I am supposed to go into the EFI folder that I just copied to the USB drive and copy the dsdt.aml found inside to the root of my USB drive? Lastly, on the step that says "copy kexts folder from workingxpc to / in external usb drive"... Am I supposed to copy the kexts folder to the XPC USB Boot Drive, or the BaseSystem drive? If it is the BaseSystem drive, is the Kext folder just supposed to be in the root of the drive? I'd appreciate any answers that you guys can provide!
  9. Need help with Lion Install

    I tried your instructions. I dragged Fakesmc.kext into my terminal window and then added sudo before my commands. It asked for my password and then said: /Volumes/Mac OS X Base System/System/Library/Extensions/fackesmc.kext: is a directory When I try it without dropping Fakesmc.kext into the terminal window, it says: chown: fackesmc.kext: No such file or directory What am I doing wrong?
  10. Need help with Lion Install

    That may be true. A Pentium D is a dual core intel processor. Is that what might be causing my problem?
  11. Need help with Lion Install

    I'm trying to install Lion on my Hackintosh. I'm using the Chameleon install method. I tried to use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], but it wouldn't load anything. Here is some basic info on what I've done: I've got one USB drive for the moment, so I'm using a separate partition as my install source. I followed these instructions to get it ready: 1. Boot Snow Leopard and do the following (copying and correcting steps given by blade5502) Mount 10.7 image in Terminal: open /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg Restore “Mac OS X Base System” to a partition (diskutility) //You should have 2 free Partitions: 1 for Installation Files ond another for the System should be installed. Remove “Packages” alias from System/Installation on that partition in Terminal: sudo cp -R /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation 3. Installing fakesmc (very important) Copy fakesmc.kext to System/Library/Extensions of Mac OS X Base System Installation . Set the proper permissions for next : $ chown -R 0:0 fakesmc.kext $ chmod -R 755 fakesmc.kext The only problem that I encountered with these instructions was the last part (permissions for fakesmc). I tried running the terminal commands that were listed above, but my system did not recognize them. So I used the Kext Utility to repair permissions. Does the utility only repair permissions for the boot drive? Anyway, everything else was done exactly as was listed above and appeared to be successful. I installed [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to a USB drive and used it to boot. I was able to select my install partition and I used the -v bootflag. It gives a black screen and says "loading files.............." and then stops. I let it sit for half an hour and nothing else happened. So I downloaded the Lion version of Chameleon RC5 (was listed in the main Lion thread under new releases) and I installed that to my freshly formatted USB drive. I was able to successfully start Chameleon when I rebooted and I selected my install partition again with the -v bootflag. The kext loading text zips past and then I just get a black screen. I tried to boot the parition without any bootflags and I get the Apple Logo and that's it. I never see the pinwheel and nothing else happens. Any ideas on what I might have done wrong or what I can try? My Hardware: Desktop (w/Snow Leo Install) - CPU: Intel Pentium D 3.0 Ghz - RAM: 2 GB DDR2 800 Mhz - Video: Geforce 8800 GT 1 GB - Chipset: Intel - HD: 250 GB SATA 7200 RPM with GUID Partition
  12. I am trying to install Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on my HP DV6000 (exact model: DV6327cl). I am trying to install the OS using iatkos S3 V2. Here are the specs for the computer: CPU: AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology TL-50 / 1.6 GHz RAM: 1 GB DDR2 5300 Chipset: Nforce Video: Nvidia Geforce 6150 Go HD: 120 GB Serial ATA When I boot from the iatkos DVD, I have to boot with the -v -x flags or the USB ports will not work. When I boot using those flags, I do have USB connectivity so I'm able to attach a USB Mouse and Keyboard. I am able to complete the installation successfully, but I still don't have sound/Keyboard/Trackpad/Ethernet working. There may be other things (like the webcam, card reader), but I'm not worried about those yet. I've read some installation guides for similar models, but they were all for Leopard and not Snow Leopard. Can anyone give me some advice on what settings to use and what kext's I might be able to use to get the Keyboard/Trackpad working? I believe that they use a PS2 interface so I'm likely looking for PS2 Kexts. Also, if there are any bootflags that I need to try, I would appreciate the info. If I need to install with something other than iatkos, I would also be interested in that information. Thanks!
  13. I'm getting a strange problem with my Hackintosh. I'm running a Desktop that has the latest 10.6.6 update. I just downloaded the Facetime Beta for Mac and I've connected a USB Camera to my computer. When I open Facetime, I am able to see myself, but when I try to log in, I get an error that "The Device you are attempting to use has an invalid ID". I'm assuming that this is the hardware ID for my camera? It's not related my Apple ID (I double-checked and I'm able to log into iTunes fine). Is there anything that I can do to make Facetime work? Has anyone encountered this error?
  14. If you're reading this, then you probably had some trouble getting Teamviewer installed on your Hackintosh. This is because some Hackintosh installs do not change your serial number to something that appears authentic. When Teamviewer tries to connect, you get an error that Server was denied. These following steps will teach you how to get around this problem. 1. Download Chameleon 2.0 RC4 (link below). 2. Install Chameleon and Reboot your Computer. 3. Download SMBIOS.plist 4. Open Terminal and Type this command: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE killall Finder 5. Open Your Hard Drive and look for the hidden folder called "Extra" (should be visible). 6. Open the Extra folder and copy your downloaded SMBIOS.plist file into it. *Note: You may need to enter your password when you copy. If there is an existing SMBIOS.plist file, overwrite it with the one that you downloaded from this thread. 7. Reboot your Computer. 8. Now your Serial Number has been changed and you will be able to run Teamviewer normally. *Note: To hide your files again, Enter the following command into Terminal: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE killall Finder If anyone has any questions, just let me know! http://www.mediafire.com/file/tb5azm8kapva...202.0%20RC4.pkg http://www.mediafire.com/file/4u2pjp7c3sf3y43/smbios.plist
  15. I checked the DVD and it is on there. I assumed that it probably was since I've had 2 flawless installs on desktop systems. Any idea on what I can try to make sure that it gets installed?
