  1. Hi Scripty, Unfortunately, I never did find a way of resolving the bluetooth issue with that particular build. I ended up re-installing using a different build. Unfortunately, it was a while ago now and I can't remember which one! I will see what I can dig out and pass on to you. It's very frustrating I know. I was this close to buying a mac mini (which I still want) but when you have a machine running pretty close to what you would get, the money doesn't seem to be worth it! Good Luck!
  2. Hi many thanks for your hard work on this. Hoping to be able to get my system up and running with Snow Leopard with it. I have a question you may be able to help with. After completing your instructions, my PC runs through the Chameleon startup and runs the last line which is 'Starting Darwin x86' My screen goes blank and then it reboots. Do you know what might be causing this? I have Leopard running on the same machine but only with the following options set from the IPC OSX86 - UNIVERSAL 10.5.6 - PPF5 install Disk 9.4.0 STAGEXNU UNIVERSAL KERNEL INTEL ICHx SATA DRIVERS (Chipset Drivers) NVDARWEN256 (Video Driver) APPLE AZALIA AUDIO (Audio Driver) FIXES & PATCHES: CPUS=1 (ONE CORE FIX) & APPLE SMBIOS PATCH - (APPLESMBIOS TOH) I would love to get the retail version up and running and have been trying for days to get this to work, any help would be much appreciated!! My PC Spec is below, THANKS! Jon. Intel (South Lake 3 G5) 915GV Motherboard Intel® Pentium® 4 processor 519 with Hyper-Threading Technology 
Operates at 3.06 GHz, 533 MHz FSB - Features MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, NX-Bit, C1E 2GB 533 MHz (PC4200) DDR2 memory NVIDIA GEFORCE 6200 256MB PCI Graphics Card Realtek ALC860VU On Board Sound
  3. Hi, can I ask which setup you went for? Your link points to a post which has three different methods: Chameleon + Hidden EFI Partition Boot-132 Disc w/ patched boot file Chameleon v2 RC1 USB Bootloader w/Netkas PCEFIv10.1 patched boot I'm having varying degrees of success with each one! Knowing which one worked for you would be a huge help. Thanks.
  4. Hi all! I am after some advice on getting my hackintosh setup using a Retail DVD of Leopard and the Chameleon software. My current hackintosh has the following spec: Intel (South Lake 3 G5) 915GV Motherboard Intel® Pentium® 4 processor 519 with Hyper-Threading Technology 
Operates at 3.06 GHz, 533 MHz FSB - Features MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, NX-Bit, C1E 2GB 533 MHz (PC4200) DDR2 memory NVIDIA GEFORCE 6200 256MB PCI Graphics Card Realtek ALC860VU On Board Sound It is currently up and running using the IPC OSX86 - UNIVERSAL 10.5.6 - PPF5 FINAL RELEASE DVD distro configured with the following options: 9.4.0 STAGEXNU UNIVERSAL KERNEL INTEL ICHX SATA DRIVERS (Chipset Drivers) NVDARWEN256 (Video Driver) APPLE AZALIA AUDIO (Audio Driver) FIXES & PATCHES: CPUS=1 (ONE CORE FIX) & APPLE SMBIOS PATCH - (APPLESMBIOS TOH) The hardware is a little old now (It's a Gateway GT3016b PC that was bought a good few years back) but setup using the options above, works really well. I would like to be able to set it up again using the Retail Leopard Disk and Chameleon's software to allow me to update like a real mac. I'd also like to look into installing Snow Leopard in this way in the future if it's possible. So, my question is, is it possible for me to do this on my hardware? My grasp of things at the moment tells me that by using the Chameleon software, it removes the need to use a custom Kernel (Like the 9.4.0 STAGEXNU UNIVERSAL KERNEL I am using at the moment, and use the retail installation. It would also install my kext's for me for my video and audio but what about the chipset drivers? Is that something that can be done? Thankyou in advance to anyone who can give me a couple of pointers on this. It will be very much apreciated!
  5. Hi all, Long time reader of the boards, first time I've posted! Have found the boards to be a fantastic resource so far and have been happily using Leopard on my desktop and netbook for a while now. Thanks to all who make this possible! On to my problem... I recently wiped my desktop PC which was running a kalyway 10.5.2 build and set it up using iPC OSx86 10_5_6 Universal PPF5 Final build. Everything seemed to be running perfectly, except that is for my bluetooth dongle. I managed to get it working at first but then noticed it would disappear after my PC was powered off and then rebooted. The only reliable way I have found to get it back is to follow these steps: 1. Boot using -x flag into Safe Mode 2. Log in using USB Keyboard (bluetooth still not present) 3. Reboot - Notice here that Leopard waits to 'Update Boot Caches' 4. After reboot (not into safe mode this time) Bluetooth is back and my Bluetooth keyboard is still paired. (Hurrah!) Bluetooth will remain working even when I select restart and the hackintosh restarts. However, if I Shut Down the hackintosh and then reboot, I lose bluetooth again. One other thing to mention is I notice that after I follow the steps above, I get Firewall alerts again (would you like to allow iTunes to accept incoming connections?) I switched this on in system preferences but have already agreed to it. The safe mode boot seems to reset this. Can anyone tell me what is happening to my Bluetooth when I power things down? And why a boot into safe mode resolves it? Is there something I can do to stop it from happening? I would be most grateful for any help or advice! I have tried resetting disk permissions, Setting Extensions Permissions and Clearing Extension Cache using OSX86Tools but that seems to have no effect. I have both IOBluetoothHIDDriver.kext and IOBluetoothFamily.kext installed. In case it helps, here is the Bluetooth info from About this Mac when bluetooth is working: Apple Bluetooth Software Version: 2.1.3f8 Hardware Settings: Jon�s Mac Pro: Address: 00-18-e4-0d-09-4f Manufacturer: Cambridge Silicon Radio Firmware Version: 1958 Bluetooth Power: On Discoverable: Yes HCI Version: 2 ($2) HCI Revision: 1958 ($7a6) LMP Version: 3 ($3) LMP Subversion: 1958 ($7a6) Device Type (Major): Computer Device Type (Complete): Macintosh Desktop Composite Class Of Device: 3670276 ($380104) Device Class (Major): 1 ($1) Device Class (Minor): 1 ($1) Service Class: 448 ($1c0) Requires Authentication: No Services: Bluetooth File Transfer: Folder other devices can browse: ~/Public Requires Authentication: Yes State: Enabled Bluetooth File Exchange: Folder for accepted items: ~/Downloads Requires Authentication: No When other items are accepted: Ask When PIM items are accepted: Ask When receiving items: Prompt for each file State: Enabled Devices (Paired, Favorites, etc): Jon�s keyboard: Name: Jon�s keyboard Address: 00-1e-52-6e-e2-f8 Type: Keyboard Firmware Version: 320 Services: Apple Wireless Keyboard Paired: Yes Favorite: No Connected: Yes Manufacturer: Broadcom ($3, $31e) Incoming Serial Ports: Serial Port 1: Name: Bluetooth-PDA-Sync RFCOMM Channel: 3 Requires Authentication: No Outgoing Serial Ports: Serial Port 1: Address: Name: Bluetooth-Modem RFCOMM Channel: 0 Requires Authentication: No Many thanks, Jon
