  3. Lenovo X220 & Lenovo T430 & X230

    Gotcha. Sorry, seems like every group has their own way of getting that info. I am working on getting the audio controller now. I got a dell wifi internal card and a dongle in card the wifi doesn't work. Was hoping to get the ethernet working. Thank you for the input. I have access to several types of lenovo laptops so i'd like to get guides built to help out the scene. I have a Macbook Pro Retina, Macbook Air and iMac so i am mainly doing this for contributing to the scene. With that said i'm not rushed to get it all figured out which is nice. Thanks for the help and i'll post the Audio info asap

  8. Hey guys i have an ASUS P6X58D-E with i7 930 processor that i'd like to get OSX running on via Virtual Box virtual machine. I am using the iAtkos s3 v2 disc currently and getting the errors in the picture attached. I did that without changing a thing in the customize section. Can anyone provide me with some advice? I have a retail disc as well however i was not sure how to utilize that via VM.
  9. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    I am just not real sure on the setup of a virtual box OSX image. I am used to VMWKST7 and Virtual PC but it seems to be pretty different. I just want to make sure i get started in the right direction so i don't end up having to ask a ton of questions on here. I appreciate the responses. PM me if you guys have any extra input. Thanks again.

  15. Dell XPS M1330 Guide

    What’s up everybody. I wanted to detail my Hackint0sh experience because all to often i have ran into dead ends when attempting to Hackintosh a system. I used a guide from a www.projectosx.com forum post. My system is a Dell XPS M1330. I have everything working except the Ethernet & that it hangs on Shutdown and Restart and you have to hold the power button down manually. I currently have this system running 10.6.6. It updated using the built in OS X update tool. Hardware Specs: There are far too many to spec out but this guide should work for most. Must be Dell XPS M1330 or like machine to even attempt. ************************************************************** Needed: - Dell Snow ISO from Bottom of Post (I used this one: http://www.mediafire.com/?yoa268aewbueffr) - OSX ISO - Dell XPS M1330 or Similar Dell (Only Tested on my Dell XPS M1330) ************************************************************** Installation: For sake of it being a laptop i am going to guess that the system has one HDD. There are two Cases i will detail in this guide. Dual boot & OSX Only. I currently have Windows 7 Pro & OSX 10.6.6 installed. CASE 1: Dual Boot (What i did) 1. Boot using Dell Snow Disc by inserting disc and pressing F12 at the splash screen. Then choose to boot from CD. 2. This will get you to the disc selection screen. When you are at this screen, Eject the Dell Snow #1 disc and replace it with an ISO of OSX. Press F5 and make sure the disc name changes. Now select the OSX installation disc. I used a retail version that i purchased from Apple for $30. 3. When you boot into the disc you will be greeted by the typical Apple Installation screen. Format the drive with the Disk Utility. Create two (or more) partitions. I did the first as Win7 and the second as OSX. You will need to make sure that you use GUID partition table (GPT) from options menu. 4. On the two partitions created, Use MS-DOS (FAT) for Windows 7 Partition and use Mac OS Extended (journaled) for the OSX Partition. Give them names according to what they are to make things easier on yourself. 5. Now that you have your partitions, Exit the Disk Utility and Exit the OSX Installation and Reboot. Get you Windows 7 installation media and insert it. 6. Now you will install Windows 7 (or your flavor of Windows) to the partition you created earlier. For help with this comment or email me. 7. Now that you have installed Windows 7, Insert the Dell Snow Disc if needed and get to the disk loading screen. You will see your Windows installation and the Dell Snow disc options. Remove the Dell Snow disc once again as you did before and insert your OSX disc. Press F5 to and make sure the disc name changes. Now select the OSX disc and boot into the OSX installation. 8. You should have your partition created now. Follow the prompts and install OSX. 9. I am working on a fix to make this partition bootable however for the time being you will need to boot using the Dell Snow Disc, You will then choose either you OSX install or your Windows install. 10. Install kext needed for the system to work properly. (I got this part from the www.projectosx.com forum and it was a bit unclear.) Mandatory Booter, you will need something to be able to boot. I recommend Chameleon 2 RC3 or newer. Mandatory kexts; you will find them in the Preboot CD, and the ones that are needed are: AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext & ApplePS2Controller.kext or VoodooPS2Controller.kext (to be able to use your keyboard and trackpad) IOATAFamily.kext (to avoid kernel panic from the 10.6 version) fakesmc.kext (to be able to run finder and other signed applications) DSDT patch, dsdt.aml from the Preboot CD, may and should be edited for your CPU if you need power management. Recommended SMBIOS override. The SMBIOS table from the Dell is actually conform, but we want to change it to make it more Mac like. So the smbios.plist from the Preboot CD should be copied. Update com.apple.Boot.plist Recommended kexts: VoodooBattery.kext (for your battery) VoodooHDA.kext (for your sound) Non-working There are a few parts that is not supported and a few issues that are still unresolved Broadcom 5906 100Mbit ethernet card Shutdown/restart when using Nvidia Graphics PreBoot CDs: Preboot CD’s available from here. Number 1 is most generic, and 5 more specific. Use a number lower if the one you try is not working http://www.rapidshare.com/files/422607258/…Snow-05.iso.zip http://www.rapidshare.com/files/422607256/…Snow-04.iso.zip http://www.rapidshare.com/files/422607245/…Snow-03.iso.zip http://www.rapidshare.com/files/422607244/…Snow-02.iso.zip http://www.rapidshare.com/files/422607247/…Snow-01.iso.zip CASE 2: OSX ONLY! 1. Use boot process from Step 1 & 2 above. 2. Make one disc partition using the Disk Utility. Mac OS Extended (journaled) GUID partition (GPT) in options menu. 3. Install OSX and follow Step 10 above. Guide i used to create this post: http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=561 Support for this guide has come and gone at that link so i want to carry it on here for all to benefit from. My Goals: 1. Built in boot so i don’t have to use the disc to boot every time 2. fix ethernet 3. fix shutdown and restart hang If you liked this please take a minute to say so. I have several other guides that i will post if there are people who want them.
