    Old Pentium 4 3,2GHZ Running Lion 10.7.3

    i have the kernel in my plist the reason i type it there is that to the time of the recording i booted from usb which for some reason ignores it
  2. Ok, After searches and searches to install lion on my Pentium 4 i was about to give up on it due to the fact that 99% of the topics said it is IMPOSSIBLE. So i installed it on my AMD machine again, then i went on a search for a Lion AMD kernel without the xpchelper bug, i installed the kernel but imidiatly had a reboot, since i had SL on my second partition i thought to revert the kernel change on the pentium 4, i didnt watch chameleon a second and guess what happened? a old pentium 4 is running Lion ... for those interested in this ... install lion on a machine that installs it without issues , then install this kernel : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/65-amd-kernel/ (YES it is a AMD kernel, seems our great developers unlocked more then they thought ;-) ) here is the proof video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MW9cg1LCCZA
  3. I Sucesfully installed Lion 10.7.3 on This AMD Hardware, My Specs: Mobo: F2A55-M LE Processor: AMD F2 3,2 Dual Core Ram: 4GB Corsair DDR3 HDD: 1TB Western Digital Green Drive S-ATA Graphics: Nvidia Geforce GT216 1GB DVD: LG DVD-R S-ATA Preparation: Download Niresh12495-Lion-10.7.3-V2.iso (google is your friend) Download RealtekRTL81xx-0_0_90.pkg Download Finder.app DP2 Download Chimera Bootloader Download unpkg Save all this on a USB Thumb Drive Install Procedure on Empty HDD: Burn the iso to a DVD on Slowest Speed Boot from DVD press f8 on Boot Screen and type this: "Kernel Cache"=\amd arch=i386 -v wait around 5-10 Minutes for the installer to load Go into DiskUtility and Partition your HDD as GUID and HFS+ Journaled Go Back in the installer and Hit Next. On Customize Select the following Options: Kernel: AMD Bootloader: Chimera Graphics: natit Now install After installation boot again from DVD into the installation CD and Select your fresh installation, boot flags are: arch=i386 npci=0x3000 -v wait for the OS to load when you are in your OSX follow these Steps: Run unpkg from your Thumb Drive and extract the chimera boot loader now copy the file boot1h from the chimera folder located in /usr/standalone/i386/ to your Thumb Drive and reboot boot back in your installer and run the Following Steps in this order: open up the installer terminal and run these commands: cd /Volumes/<name of your Thumb Drive here> (for me it was NO Name) rm -R -f /Volumes/<name of your Install HDD for example "Lion")/System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/ cp -R -f Finder.app /Volumes/<name of your Install HDD for example "Lion")/System/Library/CoreServices/ Now Exit Terminal and Go into DiskUtility and unmount your install hdd partition. Go back into your Terminal. cd /Volumes/<name of your Thumb Drive here> run diskutil list and find your install partition for example disk2s1 for me now run dd if=boot1h of=/dev/diskXsX (where diskXsX is enter your partition for example disk2s1) reboot now you should be able to boot into your OSX with the following boot flags: arch=i386 -legacy npci=0x3000 -v (sometimes the boot hangs simply restart the boot process) End Steps: Install RealtekRTL81xx-0_0_90.pkg Find a modified applehda.kext for audio and most important to avoid de xpchelper bug run in a terminal these commands 1) Wait for xpchelper to crash 2) Open terminal and type these in: "sudo su" "cd /private/var/folders" "find /private/var/folders/ -type f | grep -i com.apple.xpchelper.cache" 3) cd to the first one that shows up on the list (it will be in a separate folder from the other xpchelper caches) "rm -r com.apple.xpchelper.cache" "pico com.apple.xpchelper.cache" ---> hit ctrl+o to save and ctrl+x to exit "chflags uchg com.apple.xpchelper.cache" 4) Reboot and you're done! This is not my work Simply the process i used. Credits go to : Devout for his Guide on this topic: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/278181-amd-1073-guide-experimental-only/ mymac4music for his guide on fixing the boot0 error on his blog here: http://www.mymac4music.com/2011/10/boot0-error/ and finally jeaton2012 for his xpchelper fix which i found here: http://www.osx86.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=2584&page=32 So i Hope this helps Someone.

  11. Hallo alle zusammen bin neu hier und habe auch direkt ein problem (sorry dafür *fg*). Also habe es nach mehreren versuchen und einigen DVD Rohlingen geschaft mac os x 10.5.2 zu installieren, und zwar die kaliway amd version. Aber da einige Programme dort nich mehr laufen sehe ich mich genötigt auf 10.6 abzudaten, also habe ich mir die 10.6 AMD von hazard besorgt, zuerst lief alles einwandfrei dann sagte der installer mir das er nicht kopieren kann da evtl die festplatte defekt sei, also 10.5 wieder drauf und nochmal versucht aber seit dem sagt er mir immer "waiting for root device" Kennt jemand eine version die bei mir funktioniert? Dies ist meine Hardware CPU: AMD Turion 64 1800 MHz SSE SSE2 SSE3 Memory: 2GB GPU: ATI MOBILITY™ RADEON™ x200 128Mb Intergated Soundcard: ATI AC'97 WiFi: Broadcom BCM4311 Ethernet: Broadcom Gigabit BCM5788 HDD 40GB Vielen Dank für Hilfe im Vorraus PS. Falls noch weitere Daten benötigt werden bitte sagen Achja das mit AHCI modus ist bei mir nicht möglich da mein bios sehr eingeschränkt ist.
