  1. Pandora's Box OS X installer

  2. How to install Chameleon manually (v 2 and v 1)

    Great & Thx a Lot c0rk007hck followed literally and worked 110%. My new cfg: ASUS HB87-Plus + Core i54570 + 4+4Gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 + Asus GT9600 silent 512 + SSD Intel 180 GB (win7) + (old) Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 0.5TB (OsX 10.8.5 Niresh). Now SSD is disconnected, I'll fix later, but I choose for my multi boot to format the 'ancient' HDD in MBR: disk0s1= 1GB "BOOT" for current and further bootloaders. Im going to try Easy BCD here, too. disk0s2= 233 GB "OsX" (10.8.5 ...) disk0s3= 265 GB for temporarily store Time Machine an other setup stuff I chose that to allow me restoring (from TM) the OSX partition, without any boot fix to be further applied, while I'm messing around my final cfg. For n00bs: never use same HDD for OS and Time Machine, a disk failure will be dramatic. I'm currently playing without any personal docs. Later on, once reached a satifying cfg, I'll move my docs on OsX disk and move Time Mac on a different HDD. Bye & THX
  3. there aren't any download links here, execpt for drivers or specific projects ... As written above, you can only search the :censored2: web or better :pirate2: P2P
  4. Hi MainMan ... a few suggestions to start: you'd better put your hardware list in your signature or in the post or any further help will be nearly impossible. Read more ... if search engine of the forum is not fully satisfying, well, Google for the questions you have, just adding always keywords such as "Osx86" or "insanelymac" ... and you'll get nearly anything you look for. Basically 10.5.2 release is nice, but pretty old. It's not easy to still get it alive, but I'm not sure about it. So, you should try searching usual places, but nobody will ever give you a link in a forum. Google helps a lot if just know the extension to add to the search . Depending on your HW, why don't you check the HCL on the OSX86 wiki (top right of the page), then get a newer release. Mobo & drivers or laptops are better supported, with more stable drivers. For older PCs I suggest 10.5.8 (there are almost two very good distros around, check my signature) and for newer HW 10.6 to 10.6.2 are also easier to intall and get it fully working, again, check HCL. Ciaooo !!
  5. Ciao Egesia! it looks like you have a disk driver loading problem "IOATA..." A hint for everybody: write in your signature your hardware devices, such as mobo, graphics, audio, kind of disk(s) ATA/SATA, network card, etc. It would make easier any reply to panic issues So, I may only add a few generic hints: - sometimes, depending on the setup disk you're using, there are limitations to get a succesful installation by only using a SATA CD/DVD drive or SATA HDD (some other works easier on ATA) - Always make a first boot with -f flag, to load all the drivers, or -x -v - see if there are specific threads with your mobo or controller driver. It helps a lot or let you understand what to do. - since I've installed several OsX from 10.4 to current 10.6.2 SL, and many 10.5 releases, I would suggest to use 10.5.6 iPC (very easy, a lot of embedded drivers and kernels) or iDeneb and iAtkos 10.5.7 and 10.5.8. I've found those distros more updated in terms of drivers and patches. - good luck CIAOOO!

    Ciao Luca! it looks like you have a disk driver loading problem "IOATA..."

I've found those distros more updated in terms of drivers and patces. - don't even think to get it done with a single setup disk, it's easier to try more than one. - good luck CIAOOO!
  7. Eric, it looks like you didn't spend a lot of time by reading in the forum... Just to give you a couple of hints: ° press F8 than -v at the boot, after POST operations. °° read the kind of Kernel Panic you got, than You'd better search for that problem on the forums. Than ... you may post the screenshot of the problem to whom may help you. Last hints: It's very difficult to get an installation to work that easy. Then, have a look to your specific T42 model drivers here around. Hint for the last 4 posts authors: try getting a 10.5.6 or higher. iPC release is very flexible, but I had success also with iDeneb and iAtkos 10.5.7 and 10.5.8. Then if your in troubles, it would be easier. Ciao! :wink2:
  8. Hi Molestaire, you should press F8 button to add "-X" flag while booting, then you may see what causes the Kernel Panic. It can be anything, from a wrong BIOS setting to any hardware device is not compatible or selected in the setup options of the Kali installation. I have a working Kaliway 10.5.2 on a DELL XPS 1330, but I have to thank Macgirl and some other people that worked on specific hardware device patches. Ciaooo! Pocenk, you should check the HCL in the OsX86 web site and or the forum to check each single driver or other people comments on the same laptop. Just try both ... then format and retry, it's pretty impossible to get an installation running at the first trial ... Ciaooo
  9. Hi Cabal, I've just tried messing around ACPI settings on the BIOS. Removed all of the two settings I had on a new Asus P5QC (set to "none"), setup worked. Remeber always to boot with -v flag to see detailed error messages, then you can try a newer OS release, such as iDeneb or iPC. One more problem I had was the DVD drive ... some are not supported for the installation ...! Since I used a new LG drive, I had problems during setup, then moved back to an older Pioneer 111, it was fine. After setup is successful, you can use the one you like (check compatibility with Toast or the Burning SW you like). Have a nice Sunday ...!
  10. Migration Assistant

    OK, I didn't find a solution, but at least a workaround: I've tried tenths of times just to get it crashed or stuck before it ends. Then I had it work fine just booting with -x (-v) option.
  11. Migration Assistant

    Hi XboogerX ! I just finished setting up my Gygabyte P35 DS3R with iDeneb 1.6 lite. Pretty easy and (lot of thanks to the dev) painless setup ... except for the audio (ALC889A). After several attempts with alternative drivers catched here around, I've got the mic-in and spk-out working (in the pref panel it doesn't let me get in the audio setup) by using the drivers in the iPC 10.5.6 DVD. About the Migration Assistant I'm experiencing the same problem you have. I have two backups that I've used to try, a Time Machine backup (on a S-Ata HDD, Intel ICH-9 recognized as ICH-8) and the previous HDD that I was working with, it's a 500 GB Barracuda that I've tried to get connected by the Intel S-Ata, by the JMicron S-Ata and through an external USB adapter. Each HDD was properly working but after a few minutes my Hacky showh me the dark grey screen (of death?) I've also tried to save either the user account only or the applications, most of the times it crashes, sometimes it just freezes. I've also tried different kernels, from 9.4 to 9.8 vanilla, which I'm using now, different patches, too, but still stuck with that. Hoping somehow for a , I'll keep on trying, than post some more info if it will work. (It's the only post I've found discussing this issue) CIAOO !!! Other info: DVD: Pioneer DVR 111D (as Apple shipping unit) Intel C2D 6320, 1,87 GHz Audio: ALC 889A, partially working as described above nVidia 9500GT 512MB (Gainward), the model is not recognized (it says only "nVidia") ID=0x0540, but fully working CI+QE, dual monitor, with nVinject 0.21-512
  12. Problem with iPC 10.5.6 and USB keyboard.

    Hello Ianxxx! It looks you're dramatically right , as I've seen the confirm of the same issue also on real Macs on this forum: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/comments.p...#commentsanchor Then I've downloaded the patch in the above mentioned link, but it didn't work at all. Maybe because my Hackbook is not a Macbook ... Naturally I've repeated the installation from scratch (using Leo4v3), patched with the fantastic sonotone goodies, but then, instead of installing the 10.5.6 update directly from the utility, I did it after downloading it locally. Exactly the same: no internal keybd, no trackpad! (but it works with any external USB keyboard & mouse) Next step: I'll try extracting all the IOUSBFamily.kext and IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext manually (hoping Pacifist will help me), then let you know. I'm not sure wether the files are only those or there's one I'm missing, maybe more... After the updates, I get a 'yellow' failure on loading "com.orByte.PCGenUSBEHCI" when -v booting. When I freshly install 10.5.2, not any yellow alerts, and everything's working fine. Talk you later, gotta sleep some Thanks in advance
  13. Problem with iPC 10.5.6 and USB keyboard.

    I'm having the same issues ... ! My new (second-hand) DELL XPS 1330 is getting me slightly mad. I've started with setting up OsX 10.5.2 by Kaly and also tried with Leo4all v3, the first was working with minor defects on the trackpad and keyboard was fine. I've tried also the sonotone "all-in-one" patches: it worked good for unlocking the Apple's updates but made me troubles with keyboard and trackpad. The second one, Leo's, made me the same problem as you , allowing to use the keybd by booting with -x flag. Then, a few hours ago, I've installed the original upgrade to 10.5.6 from Apple website and everything stopped working at all ... I'll work on it, then post what will happen if I'll get some good results One thing is sure: I'll never turn back to Micro ft !!! OsX 10.5.2 kernel 9.2.2 EFI/Vanilla - ASUS P5LD2 - Core2duo E4400 - 2x1 GB DDR II Kingston - GF7300GS, All works OK OsX 10.5.2 kernel 9.2.2 EFI/Vanilla - AsRock ConRoe eSata II - Core2duo E6800 - 2x2 GB DDR II Corsair - GF8500GS, All works fine except some distortion on the audio after 10 min. of play Now, I'm in troubles with my DELL XPS-1330 !!!
  14. Thanks Kaly !!! For all those it may help ... I had the easiest installation with EFI/vanilla on: - ASUS P5 KPL-VM - Intel C2D E4400 2.2 Ghz @2.4 - 1 GB DDR2/800 - Unknown @844 - nVidia GS7300/256 and GT6600/256 (instead of the internal GM3100) - Realtek RTL8136 - OsX 10.5.2 v8 on Maxtor SATA 160GB DiamondMax10 - a huge 7x3 feet desktop - full of rubbish such as 2 PCs, dvds, cds, hardware and wires (a must!) Now I'm going to make usable the Atheros/Attansic L1 NIC, I've seen some drivers in a specific forum. Same for the audio ALC662 and the built in GMA3100, there are some chances it will work. Only the updates to 10.5.3 (I've tried both the vanilla and the Modbin) aren't working at all. Does someone believe I've missed some steps? I'm updating the Kaly's 1052v8 (9C7010) with vanilla 922 and updating with a Kaly's 10.5.3 combo update (with a built-in PT-BR language translation). Have a nice day! Empty Mem
  15. Leo4all v3 10.5.2 install.. 1 nagging issue..

    Hi thelini, two things to check: 1) in the System Profiler, at your graphic card info, do you see AGP or PCI ? If you didn't install the AGP Gart patch, or didn't use the right one, you'll never see it working, it will not show AGP, but PCI. 2) did you find any post related to your graphic card? I've tested several AGP cards, the easiest to work is nVidia but I've tested only the PCIEx version of the 6800, it works fine. Normally on Intel based MoBo I've used AGP Gart 1.2, also a crowd of people says that it's the only one working, but ... better test. Anyway, you'd better install separately, first AGP Gart, then reboot, then the best driver I've used on all my mobos was NVinject 2.1, but also natit (dual or not) and Titan worked for me, depending on differnt graphic cards I used. With NVinject I have a total control on the two video outputs, but, take care, at the first succesful install (QE+CI at 1280x1024) I had the primary video on the secondary monitor. wasted some time to understand that it was working, but I had to get a second monitor, then move the white upper bar dragging from the second monitor to the 1st, to make it the primary... so my 1st monitor was simply blue, and made me crazy for a while.
