  1. Leopard install d915gux

    Well thanks for the assistance I finally got it working. Somewhat. Still got some tweaking to do. Mountain Lion would be nice, but for this computer I'm going to stick with Leopard. It's primary use is going to be to store and play my music. So I don't need the latest and greatest. My 975x platinum, with core 2 quad, will be next project. I know people have gotten Lion working on those, so I will try for that, and hopefully eventually get Mountian Lion working on it. We'll see. So here's how I got the d915gux mobo working with Leopard, just incase other people run across this old mobo and want to do the same. I don't know if everything I selected was absolutely nessacary but it works. Somewhat. Sleep shutdown restart all work. usb works. Video works. Ethernet doesn't work. But I haven't tried to get it working. Sound doesn't work either. Apparently there is a fix out there for sound, but I've got a soundcard which I will be using to fix that issue. I used ideneb 10.5.6 and the options I selected are below. Alternative Essential Patch - ACPI Kext 10.5.6 -PS2Fix for ACPI Kext Chipset -ICHx Fix Kernel -Kernel 9.2.0 Sleep Fix -Cpus=1-Fix System Utilities -GenericCPUPMControl Video -Intel --Intel GMA900
  2. Leopard install d915gux

    Okay so I attempted this a few more times with no such luck, I think I've tried every option now and I'm stumped. Correction to my previous post, I did get it to boot the other day. But not everything worked, and it would freeze when trying to sleep or shutdown, so I figured stupidly of me, I'd reinstall it. I used ideneb 10.5.6 the other day and thats what I'm trying now, but I'm stuck with endless reboot and I have no idea what I did right the other day. I've made sure my bios options are correct. cpus=1 -f -x -legacy platform rd=disk. Everything gives me the same results endless reboot. When using -v I get the following Loading Darwin/x86 Loading kernel mach_kernel Loading HFS+ file: [mach_kernel] from 4234670 Loading HFS+ file: [mach_kernel] from 4234670 LoadDrivers: Loading from [Extra/Extensions] LoadDrivers: Loading from [/system/Library/Extensions.mkext] Loading HFS+ file: [/system/Library/Extensions.mkext] from 4234670 Loading HFS+ file: [/system/Library/Extensions.mkext] from 4234670 And that's it, then it reboots again, and again. Any help is much appreciated.
  3. I've been wanting to do a hackintosh project for a long time, I've attempted in the past and failed. (Wrong hardware) Recently I came across an old Intel D915gux mobo. It has an Intel Pentium 4 2.8 ghz. From everything I've read it should be possible to get it working. I've attempted to do so with several hackintosh variants of Leopard. I have {censored} 10.5.5 iAtkox, iDeneb 10.5.6, and iPC. I also have a retail leopard dvd. But nothing I do seems to work. I'm starting with a completely clean HDD, I've used Disk Utility to format the drive. I then start the install process, but after installing nothing happens. The computer just continually restarts. Going on my 8th attempt here, and still no luck. From everything I've read it should be possible to get this mobo to work as a hackintosh. Somebody please help I'm at a loss.
