  1. I'm trying to install Lion following this guide on to my Z570. I have successfully created USB stick with Lion installer, but when I boot from it, it automatically restarts, so I even can't see first installation screen (lang selection). I will try to make screen photo during -v booting, but it reboots too fast ... You write "...steal those two kexts...", please share your kexts, because it is unclear what kexts should I put into /E/E and /S/L/E.
  2. 1) No. It was too complex for me. If you have some ideas, we may try them together. 2) no ideas, may be change bootloader? What kernel have you tested - vanilla or legacy? 3) http://forum.voodooprojects.org/index.php/topic,1235.0.html kernel panic is caused by conflict between AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext and VoodooBattery.kext when I boot 32-bit, I use VoodooPS2Controller 0.98 32-bit from http://forum.voodooprojects.org all is ok with battery when I switch to 64-bit, I use VoodooPS2Controller 0.98 32/64-bit from: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=175372 it forces to use AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext and gives kernel panic when battery is low I just don't work on battery =) If you need work on battery, switch to 32-bit mode.
  3. change /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1024x768x32</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>y</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=x86_64</string> <key>PciRoot</key> <string>1</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> </dict> </plist> /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist is not used at all
  4. you have Mac OS X 10.6.4 with old kernel Darwin 10.3.0 kernel should be Darwin 10.4.0 64-bit works only with vanilla kernel actual com.apple.Boot.plist is in the /Extra folder, show contents here casty, I can only see graphics performance in counter-strike source in windows 150fps with high settings in mac - 60 fps with low settings nvidia released new drivers http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce-macos...f03-driver.html can be installed using pacifist you can try them, but for me they didn't give performance boost... so my Mac isn't for gaming sleep doesn't work for me too for cpu overheating issue - it seems that IntelSpeedStep or VoodooPower kexts are not loaded
  5. I have used "empireEFI_V1085_for intel core processors.zip" -> "legacyempire_efi1085.iso" Your output shows that file OSInstall not found: bash-3.2# cp OSInstall /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/ cp: OSInstall: No such file or directory try next: sudo -s cd Downloads unzip OSInstall_1063_10D575_deviato.zip cd OSInstall_1063_10D575_deviato cp OSInstall /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/ cp OSInstall.mpkg /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Installation/Packages to verify successful replacement, check file datetime ls -l /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/OSInstall original 11 Feb 2010 15:57 hacked 6 May 18:14 ls -l /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg original 1 Apr 13:13 hacked 6 May 18:19
  6. DSDT was not required for me to install retail read second part of my howto
  7. with iAtkos 10.6.3 you are alone use retail
  8. AsereBLN is based on Chameleon, with some fixes. Modified kernel and other options were not required for my retail Snow Leo. In any case try to install. First goal is to boot OS successfully. Then look what hardware components are detected and working.
  9. default options with + Graphics Enabler - Apple HDA + Voodoo PS/2 + Voodoo Power + Voodoo Battery + Network Intel Gigabit
  10. DSDT patching is nightmare for me ... if you will make it, could you help me too?
  11. apxitektop, you have solution: boot with -s mount -uw / passwd root touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone ls -l /var/db/.AppleSetupDone reboot what command is unclear? Lametta17, boot with fsb=200 or put the fsb in your com.apple.Boot.plist <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>fsb=200</string> fsb is a frequency your fsb_speed is 800MHz fsb = fsb_speed / 4 = 200 had not tried vmware
  12. have no more ideas... maybe this HP Compaq 8710p guide will help?
  13. Search this forum for "Interfacenamer: timed out waiting for IOKit to quiesce". They recommend to enable AHCI mode in BIOS. Also try change SATA to IDE. архитектор?)
  14. 2 weeks first time. Second time it has taken several hours. I never have seen real Macbook, so can't compare All features that I need are working. I have played - Portal - 80fps - HL2 - 110fps - CSS - 60 fps (have tested just today) boot with -v and show error messages
  15. 32-bit <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=i386</string> 64-bit <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=x86_64</string> before switching to 64-bit: replace VoodooPS2Controller.kext with this one SL_PS2_Voodoo.zip (supports both 32 and 64 bit)
  16. vanilla kernel is /mach_kernel legacy kernel is /legacy_kernel set it in /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string>
  17. boot with -v post here error messages
  18. successfully updated to 10.6.4, works with vanilla kernel legacy kernel from qoopz/nawcom not needed now don't forget delete SleepEnabler before update

    NTFS-3G, MacFUSE, or other?

    =================================================================== http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=10153942 -create (or if exists: edit) the file /etc/fstab -in it put the following statement: LABEL={ntsf-volume-label} none ntfs rw -reboot the Mac =================================================================== http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?sto...090913140023382 Snow Leopard has the ability to mount NTFS volumes as read/write, but it's not enabled by default -- just read only is supported, as in 10.5. Here's how to get full read/write support for NTFS drives in Snow Leopard. First, uninstall NTFS-3G or Paragon if you're using either one. Here's how to get read/write support for NTFS drives in Snow Leopard: 1. In Terminal, type diskutil info /Volumes/volume_name, where volume_name is the name of the NTFS volume. From the output, copy the Volume UUID value to the clipboard. 2. Back up /etc/fstab if you have it; it shouldn't be there in a default install. 3. Type sudo nano /etc/fstab. 4. In the editor, type UUID=, then paste the UUID number you copied from the clipboard. Type a Space, then type none ntfs rw. The final line should look like this: UUID=123-456-789 none ntfs rw , where 123-456-789 is the UUID you copied in the first step. 5. Repeat the above steps for any other NTFS drives/partitions you have. 6. Save the file and quit nano (Control-X, Y, Enter), then restart your system. After rebooting, NTFS partitions should natively have read and write support. This works with both 32- and 64-bit kernels. Support is quite good and fast, and it even recognizes file attributes such as hidden files. My thanks go to Chrysaor, a MacRumors user who brought this to our attention.
  20. How to install Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard and 10.6.3 Snow Leopard on hp 8710w (maybe useful for 8510p, 8510w, 8710p, 8530p, 8530w, 8730p, 8730w ...) This is my story, how I have migrated from Windows to Snow Leopard. Thanks to all people, how share their knowledge and work. Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard If you want dual boot with Windows, then install Mac OS X to second partition. Chameleon bootloader will see and boot both Windows and Mac OS X. You can reduce Windows parititon using Acronys Disk Director. There was 110GB Windows partition at my HDD and I have reduced it to 75GB, so I had 35GB for Leo. Format new partition in Windows as FAT32 with no drive letter. Use iATKOS v7 10.5.7 DVD to boot and install. It then upgrades to 10.5.8 via Apple Software Update afterwards. Boot from DVD takes 10-15 min, just wait. Erase new FAT32 partition as HFS+, label it "Leopard". If you dont need Windows, reformat all disk as GPT (GUID Partition Table), with one partition (HFS+) If you want to try Snow Leo later, create three partitions (HFS+) for Snow Leopard for Leopard for Snow Leo Install DVD, 8GB (not needed if you have external USB drive) Leave the installation with all the default options, with the addition of the following options: Kernel - Voodoo 9.7.0 X86 Patches - OHR Drivers - VGA - nVidia - Enablers - NVEnabler (ONLY!) System - SATA/IDE - AHCI System - SATA/IDE - Generic IDE System - SATA/IDE - Intel SATA/IDE System - Intel SpeedStep (All options) System - USB Sound - Voodoo HDA System - Laptop Battery PS/2 Mouse / Keyboard - Apple PS/2 Network - Wired - Intel - Intel Gigabit Network - Wireless - Broadcom BCM43xx (For Bluetooth) After the initial installation, remove the DVD from the drive and reboot the system. System boot takes 10-15 min, just wait. Download HexHex_HP_8510w_10.5.6_Driver_Installer_v1.1.mpkg Run and install *ONLY* the Ricoh Cardbus kext. This will fix long boot problem. Reboot. Run Software Update and install all updates including 10.5.8 Or you can download and install 10.5.8 Update Combo Combo update is preferred, because it will fix issues with X11, if you use it Reboot from iAtkos_v7 DVD. Repeat install with same options, but deselect following: Main system Kernel 9.7.0 Voodoo Your languages Post-install Remove the DVD from the drive and boot into the Mac OS X. Repeat HexHex's Ricoh Cardbus kext installation. Download Voodoo kernel 9.8.0 AnV-XNU-980-V1.7.zip Replace kernel using manual Voodoo Kernel User Documentation sudo -s mv /legacy /legacy.970 cd Downloads unzip AnV-XNU-980-V1.7.zip cd voodoobuild-0.3.6 cp mach_kernel /legacy chflags hidden legacy reboot Do not forget to repair permissions using Disk Utility. Now you have Mac OS X 10.5.8 with Voodoo kernel 9.8.0. You can apply any Apple updates. What is working: Laptop keyboard, trackpad and blue touch button Full screen graphics, accelerated 1920 x 1200 x millions. Ethernet Bluetooth (including Dialup networking with my Nokia GPRS) Firewire Sound USB Volume controls Full Power-down and Restart What's NOT working? Wifi (use Belkin USB Dongle, which works just great) Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard After you has been excited by Leopard, now you will want to delete Windows and try Snow Leo Download or buy Mac OS X 10.6.3 Retail DVD On your HP notebook there is a HP_RECOVERY partition, 8GB in size. It used to restore factory pre-installed Windows. I used it for Install DVD image. You may use external USB drive (8GB required). Create DMG-image from that HP_RECOVERY partition and backup it. Erase HP_RECOVERY partition with Disk Utility, filesystem HFS+, label it "Mac OS X Install DVD" Run Disk Utility and restore Snow Leo DVD to that parition Download Empire EFI 1.085 Burn iso (non-legacy) to CD with lowest speed and boot from it. Select disk(partition) "Mac OS X Install DVD" Install Mac OS X on partition "Snow Leopard" Reboot Boot from Empire EFI again Select disk(partition) "Snow Leopard" has been installed Don't use myHack from EmpireEFI CD. Download new version myHack 1.0.1 Run myHack_Installer_1.0.1.mpkg, select "Snow Leopard" volume, choose following options *ONLY*: core Graphics Enabler FakeSMC IOATAFamily NullCPUPowerManagement Uncheck other options, then install Reboot Eject Empire EFI In the the Chameleon bootloader select disk "Snow Leopard" Systems boots without EmpireEFI now, but keyboard doesn't work. Use USB-keyboard to install VoodooPS2Controller 0.98 Reboot Download and install kexts - Intel82566MM (works in 32 and 64 bit modes) - VoodooHDA 0.2.61 - OpenHaltRestart 1.0.3 - SleepEnabler for 10.6.3 - VoodooBattery 1.3.3 - VoodooPowerMini 1.2.7 System is working now, but there is a problem with a stuttering audio. Problem is in incorrect FSB speed detection by vanilla kernel. Download 10.3.0 Legacy Kernel for INTEL/AMD by qoopz/nawcom run kernel installer legacy_kernel-10.3.0.pkg reboot Now you have Mac OS X 10.6.3 with Voodoo kernel 10.3.0. You can apply any Apple updates. What is working: Laptop keyboard, trackpad and blue touch button Full screen graphics, accelerated 1920 x 1200 x millions. Ethernet Bluetooth (only file exchange with my Nokia GPRS) Sound USB Volume controls Full Power-down and Restart What's NOT working? Bluetooth Dial-Up Networking using my Nokia GPRS Wifi (use Belkin USB Dongle, which works just great) Firewire Wake from hibernate Notes 1) Be sure that "Use secure virtual memory" is enabled. (System preferences - Security) Otherwise you may stuck with message "Wake Kernel!" on wake after sleep. Workaround is to delete /Volumes/Snow\ Leopard/var/vm/sleepimage from Leopard. 2) SMB connection to Samba/Windows file sharings is broken in 10.6.3. smb://hostname/share There are errors in console: com.apple.launchd[1] (com.apple.smbfs_load_kext[128]) posix_spawn("/System/Library/Extensions/smbfs.kext/Contents/Resources/load_smbfs", ...): Permission denied Solution: sudo -s cd /System/Library/Extensions/smbfs.kext/Contents/Resources chmod a+x load_smbfs 2 moderators: it may be useful to copy this post to OSx86 10.6 Snow Leopard sub-forum. I have no access to create new topic.
