I'm only guessing (already dropped the OS X project) hibernating image is old -I bet you hibernated the machine (making it think it should start where it left off). I've seen this myself on the 1215N, think I've just booted with the "-f" flag to avoid that bad display config block signature 0x141500ff -I bet that's the address which OS X think the nVidia card is on (apple have distinguished addresses so patches to drivers are necessary in almost any case). You should patch the driver, then I think OS X wuill recognize it (though I've bet it'll just be more work after that) nvidia rom patching failed -that means you are trying to flash your graphics card with new firmware (but it fails), bet this has to do with your driver don't recognize your graphics card, patch the driver first (don't ask, dunno how it's done, just google it). Then I think this stage will succeed. Chances are that you are best off using the guide on page 8 on how to install 10.6.3 on the 1215N then move on to the guide on how to install 10.6.7 on the same page, that did it for me. Just KEEP IN MIND, that tou are only able to use 32-bit OS X as the Intel driver is only 32-bit, though a 64-bit Intel driver does exist (on OS X 10.6.2, BUT that one does not work properly with 10.6.8). The major downside to using 32-bit OS X is that you are limited to 2GB of RAM I would advise you to drop nVidia (QE/CI) support, use only the Intel card, as it seems like A LOT of work to get nVidia to work properly. I've got Ethernet, full resolution, bluetooth, audio, card reader & multitouch to work with 10.6.7 32-bit, it ran 'kinda' smooth (as smooth as you would expect on a hackin'tosh) just read the guides on page 8 then you are greatly on your way getting OS X on the 1215N, all references to drivers are all on this thread happy hackin' and merry Christmas
I'am able to boot 10.6.8 32 bit with full resolution (using AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext) I am also able to boot it 64 bit, with full resolution (using the AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext from 10.6.2 as that version is 32/64-bit) so basically I'm a happy camper THOUGH.. however in 64 bit full resolution the cursor is a little messed, (guessing that is a minor issue, I have done no work on that). The biggest problem is when I'm using 64-bit it says in System Profiler "64-bit kernel and extensions" "Yes". However when I'm swapping the RAM, it simply won't boot 64-bit using 4 GB of RAM, now I'm doubting that it even runs 64-bit when it tell it does. Can anyone confirm this? Or tell me what's going on.. (don't know if QE/CI is enabled with 10.6.2 driver, how can I check this?) It hangs at "IOAPIC version 0x20 vectors" (cpus=1, cpus=2 & cpus=4 boot args don't work). A (perhaps) minor detail, I have to hit the "any button" one time at boot, when it says "Running on a 10.2.0+ kernel" (this only occurs 64-bit with this kernel, 32 bit just boots) don't know what this means, anyone? I' so close now, either to have a running OS X 10.6.8 64-bit full resolution, or simply giving up the history of my project: my primary OS is Linux, only doing this because a friend of mine offered me this PC for free, gf is all apple so I figured this PC would be perfect to boot OS X and Windows 8.. Or not.. Maybe it becomes just another Linux box in the end.. Cheers (no beer drinkin' smiley? are you kiddin' me?) :wink2:
