  1. 10.9 Kernel [XCPM-free]

    how does one go about transplanting this file? I'm now not too sure if i did it correctly, as I'm still unsuccessful at getting installation usb to load installer on a g3220. it used to freeze on xcpm: registered (left it for hours), now it doesn't produce that error but it stops at hfs: mounted USB on device root_device. tried a bunch of flags but still hangs here. any thoughts or input?
  2. Another DSDT Request - MSI H61M-P31 (G3)

    I've got this board and the dsdt that a fellow hackintosh-er made for me, so credit goes to him i'll put it out there in case there are any others using this board, I thought I was the only one, its a great rig, been running ML forever on a 2-core 2 thread celeron forever (msi h61m-p31 + g1610 Ivy bridge Celeron, GeForce 210 1GB 64-bit DDR3, 8gb corsair @ 1333 due to chip), intel ssd. lemme know if youve got any q's. msi_h61-p31g3_DSDT.aml.zip
  3. Title says it all really. I have a bunch of these machines i had bought on sale with 2.2ghz pentium c2d chips, 2gb fast ram, evga 7200gs, 60 gb sata2 ssd, and dvdrw. Kk so threw in the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] loader, started up osx 10.6 install from a thumb drive, after a minute i was at the familiar install screen. partioned the disk guid 1 piece. and began installation. Took about 12 minutes. got the green light rebooted, used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to start up the ssd. within seconds i was at the welcome video, did that whole bit and landed on the desktop. I ran [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.4.9 and clicked only easy beast and did the install. restarted and it started up from the ssd. I rran 10.6.8 combo update, took a few minutes, then it prompted me to restart. I ran [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] again and did again only [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. restarted and 10 seconds later at the desktop, ran [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and did voodoohda and hdarollback, sound works and now pretty much everything works. And its Fast. this was literally 1000 times easier then i planned for, i feel punked almost. I have 3 more of the identical setups ill be installing on once i grab 3 more ssds. This surely does not feel like a almost 5 yr old setup that cost me less than $90 tax included. xbench and geekbenches very nicely. video worked without any tinkering. app store everything is great, anything u click on the dock is in front of you in milliseconds.
  4. This board is very compatible with OSX, I've installed Leopard on it, and soon Lion. Someone else has already done Lion with success. Google "p35-s3g lion guide"...
  5. Thx a lot good sir. I've got this same aged board with an oc'd q6600 @ 3.2ghz and was still running leopard 10.5.2 on it and had been looking into updating but didn't want to ruin a perfect running osx system. So how did you get this working? What bootloader did you use? did you install Lion or do a upgrade? Thx again, you've at least given me enough confidence to convince me not to upgrade my system. Also what video card did you use? any input with that? Thx again!
  6. Help out a newbie!

    I don't know Sh*t, but just venturing a wild guess, try using a sata HD and disabling the IDE controller in bios, and change the settings to run sata as ahci mode.
  7. So I layed around with the system a bit longer and I believe that I've found the following too be true: Something is wrong with the dsdt.aml file (I know nothinging about what this does or how to fix it. (In kakewalk I selected a gigabyte motherboard when i restarted booting from the SSD, the bootloader kicked in, chameleon loaded, and when I let it load osx it goes until it gets to a blue screen (right before the desktop pops up) and hangs there. I tried modifying the apple.boot.plist but that just prevented the computer from hanging at the [pci configuration] segment of boot. There's something on the kakewalk/OSX SL install disk that is allowing me to get to the desktop so what is causing this and how can I transport it to the SSD so it boots from HD and do I need to use a dsdt.aml for my configuration??? I'm using a E2200 with ecs 945gct-m1333 board, 7200 gs and 7300 gs vid cards (have both)2 gigs of 800mhz ram, and a SSD. Ethernet was working from the get go. I used voodoohda and sound is working, and i could only get 1024x768 on the on board graphics. when I inserted the video card, it gave me 7300 SE in system profiler and full resolutions. I played chess so I imagine QE works. PLS any Help
  8. Hey all, so a few years back i built a few of those osx hackintosh boxes from the 80 dollar Fry's special's they were running forever. I had 4 going, running osx 10.5.2 rock solid, sleep, shutdown, restart, time machine, dual display video cards with geforce 7300 gs 256mb. Pretty much everything worked. I had been using my macbook pro 13 as my main computer for a while now, and i figured the leopard 5.2 needs upgrading since it can't run most of the stuff like safari 5 etc. So i figured i'd try my luck at Snow Leopard, instead of wasting time trying to figure out how to update leopard without breaking the install. I read a lot of the great threads on this board and others, lots of "how to" guides. etc. Then I went out and bought an SSD yanked out the Sata drive I had in the machine, disconnected the ATA DVD/CD since I figured SL wouldn't have any native support since no mac hardware since SL has had any ATA connections. Anyway most of this was just guesswork. I went into Bios as well, turned of ata controller, changed some settings to reflect what other users of this board had recommended. I made a thumb drive restore of OSX SL 10.6 on one part of the partition and left a bit of room for a bootloader. I used kakewalk to prepare the thumb drive. and Oh i did this all on one of the other leopard machines. Boot loader fired up, I saw the OSX Install icon, waited and within a moment installer had launched. I partitioned the drive, named it, and told it to install, and 12 minutes later it gave me a green thumbs up. I restarted, had ethernet working so i dled 10.6.5 update package, installed it, applied kakewalk patch, restarted and now I'm at 10.6.5. I did this reinstall 2 more times just to make sure it really wasn't a fluke, and the subsequent times I downloaded and applied 10.6.7 and 10.6.8 ver 1.1 Now I am at 10.6.8 app store works, everything is great so far, monitor displays proper resolution . etc Only one problem, When I restart the computer and allow the bootloader to initiate on the SSD osx fires up and trips out and stalls. When I run the thumb drive, then at that point I have Install OSX and SL SSD when I select SL SSD it says cannot find kake_Kernel, then takes me back to both drive choices, and when I click install OSX it fires up the installer, at the installer I select select startup disk, select SL SSD 10.6.8 and restart the computer, and 20 seconds later I'm at my desktop. ???? What am I missing.???
