  1. Snow Leopard retail installed using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]+[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] methog, i can run SL if i boot using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] but cant make it boot off of the hard drive. I've tried different Kernels, Bootloaders, with required kexts (such as SMBIOS kext) and without them. I'm going to attempt to follow a tutorial for DSDT editing/creating. Know of any helpful links perhaps?
  2. Try busratio=19 GraphicsEnabler=No -v generally its best to use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]+[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method, got Snow Leopard installed on my 15R (see sig) using it
  3. iATKOS s3 help!

    In your original post you stated you have an ATi Mobility Hd 4850 so i'm guessing you actaully have switchable graphics? If this is the case just try disabling the Intel HD Graphics in the BIOS so that Mac boots up using your ATi card (wont have full resolution or CI/QE natively). Although the Intel HD Graphics cards are supported by Snow Leopard, native support isn't included until the 10.6.5/10.6.6 updates i think so use your ATi card untill then. Although with a bit of searching on the forums in the hardware>graphics card>ATi section you'll probably find a way of getting your ATi card working too. good luck
  4. 24 poeple viewed and not one with a semi-helpful message at the least?
  5. Finally QE/CI on Mobility 5650!

    atiframebuffer? I'm guessing you mean Hoolock, Vervet, Eulemur and so on?.. the problem is i only know those 3, i had a page up with them all listed earlier but lost it. so far none have worked. I'm a little confused about the <key>UseAtiROM</key> in that do i use it at all or not? so far, with Hoolock the os began booting but stopped at some point (didnt use -v so didnt pinpoint it, will do at next boot) but when i held my power button down it made a Mac system sound :s. with Vervet the boot stops after some text about my card, but it does acknowledge that my card is a Radeon HD 5650 Mobility card so its promising. with Eulemur the boot just failed. [EDIT] this method does work in Leopard, the video card is recognised but my laptop just stays in verbose mode instead of reaching the desktop (if i boot without -v then it just stays as the grey apple screen). I can VNC, using LogMeIn, and checked system profiler where it stated my HD5650 card and i could change resolution. but cannot change it to 1366x768 and switchresx isnt being helpful at all. i changed the resolution to 1024x768 but nothing happened on my laptop screen, it just stays in verbose more listing the system actions. for example if i close an application it says applications dead: 1 can anyone help, i've tried every FB but it doesnt make a difference, none boot on my laptop screen but most are available through VNC, others dont load or give me kernel panic

    Thanks dd10986, downloaded it. If theres no ecstatic sounding post from me in the next hour assume i failed
  7. Finally QE/CI on Mobility 5650!

    The download link says the file is set to private, if you cant remedy this could you just email it to me as an attachment? I'll PM you my email address. Thanks dd10986
  8. iATKOS s3 help!

    Ok when you boot the disc and you press F8 and it allows you to choose to boot from your hard discs or the iAtkos DVD just type the busratio=18 flag and you should see where it starts typing. I'll look for a photo of the bootloader at this stage so i can illustrate my instructions a bit better. basically just do this to the t: 1. when it starts the countdown saying press F8 for additional boot options, press F8 2. now type "busratio=18" and hit enter it should now start to boot the disc. good luck

    I'm having trouble finding Lions kexts ATI5000 and the other two required for this to work. I'm new to the forums and have searched but I'm still fairly clueless. Also, just wanted to ask if anyone had tried this install on Leopard 10.5.8 (only ask because I have yet to install Snow Leopard and wanted working graphics on my current install) Thanks in advance

    Freddoo are you using iAtkos s3 or Kalyway? I have no experience with the latter so i wouldn't be able to help you, but try the iAtkos distribution if Kalyway is giving you trouble
  11. Leopard on HP G62

    you've got a Snow Leopard compatible system, why are you bothering with Leopard? just boot your chosen distribution with "busratio=16" without the quotes as your kernel flag and you should be able to install no problem, update to 10.6.5/10.6.6 which is when native Intel HD Graphics is included and you're away. just do a bit of research for your ATI Mobility card but even if that takes a while you'll stiill have qe/ci and native resolution (force it for 1366x768)
  12. Hi, I'm new to the forums and was hoping someone could shed some light on my kernel panic problem. My system specs are in my sig and i used iAtkos s3 v2 to install SL on my laptop, i have to use voodoo kernel 9.7.0 to get it further in the boot process than SMBIOS and DSDT stage which it used to get stuck at using the default kernel. the kernel panic is stated as "Failed to load extension com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform" and then a bit of info on how to report it to the voodoo team. i've search for 3 days to find more information about this kernel panic and it seems more common on actual apple hardware than in the hackintosh world so its done nothing more than confuse me further. i've also tried using the ACPI kext from an iAtkos v7 DVD which is required along with the voodoo kernel to get Leopard working properly on my laptop. i want to be able to complete a [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]+[url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] retail install of SL on my laptop but i dont want to go and spend £30 on a SL DVD only to find im still stuck at the same problem. i've tried using all manner of install combinations going through all the bootloaders i could find and using kernel flags including setting my busratio and my CPU arch, no combination gets the boot process any further. i'm really getting annoyed now because i've just found a method of enabling my graphics card for use with SL which so far has a high success rate. i know i'll need to end up changing my wifi card but im not bothered at this stage i just want a bootable install of SL.

    The dvd doesnt recognise your CPU, happens to all i3/i5/i7 CPUs. At the countdown when you hit f8 type without the quotes "busratio=XX" and then hit enter to start the DVD Of course you replace the XX with the bus/core ratio of your CPU, mine is an i3-380m with a ratio of 19 so i use "busratio=19", once you've installed snow leopard make sure to add this kernel flag to your boot.plist so you dont have to enter it at every boot. use google to find out your CPUs ratio. by a certain update, maybe 10.6.5 or 10.6.6 native i5/i7 support is included for some CPUs so you wont need the kernel flag anymore.
