  1. My friend asked me to install OSX on his laptop so... I decided I will give it a shot.. It is a HP DV7-3065dx with the following specs: 2.40 GHz AMD Turion II Ultra Dual-Core Mobile Processor M600 4GB RAM ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200 Some Audio Chipset I didn't feel like researching... Atheros AR9285 What I have done so far Downloaded & burned iAtkos S3 V2 & Hazard to blank DVD's Prepared a USB Drive with the 10.6.8 combo update, a kext for the video, network and Voodoo HDA, and the 10.6.8 Legacy Kernel What I plan on doing... Using iAtkos or Hazard to boot to the OSX installer Install OS X with the AMD kernel (whichever disk I can get to boot first) Don't install anything else After a HOPEFULLY sucessful installation I will boot to OS X and install the 10.6.8 combo update while I have ######, the 10.6.8 legacy kernel, VoodooHDA and ###### open. Install all the kexts I downloaded, the legacy kernel and VoodooHDA (check ###### for any specific options for my hardware also...) after the installation is over, Finally, reboot to a hopefully fully working 10.6.8 installation with QE/CI, working Wi-Fi & ethernet, and working sound. Considering that I don't want to mess up I would like to have some suggestions or tips that would help me out with this process. I also have a few questions: Can you get the touch buttons working on the top? Does the built-in webcam work? & Is there anybody who has either done this before or has any hardware similiar to the specs listed above? Thanks
  2. I have a PC with the following specifcations: An Intel G41 motherboard Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 2.2ghz 4gb ram And radeon 6450 I installed iAktos a couple of weeks back with 10.7.2 everything was working fine. Yesterday I decided to take my chances with the 10.7.3 with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] I selected [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] after the upgrade and rebooted my computer. It got stuck at the apple logo so typed in -f -v because that usually works for me. This is where I believe where the errors started happening: ATY_Init: Starting ** AppleSMBusPCI: start failed to get acpi path for provider ATY_Init: Checking dev-id 6779 ATY_Init Card 0x6779 was posted ATY_Init: Quitting for card 0x6779 USBMSC Identifer (non-unique): 058F63616476 0x58f 0x6361 0x100 USBMSC Identifier (non-uique): AABA09C00000035 0x154b 0x59 0x8192 After this my computers hard drive stops spinning and nothing happens until I hold down the power button. I have another partition of lion 10.7.2 on the computer so it is not the hard drive.I can use that partition to help solve the problem if there is a solution like that Any suggestions???!!! Thanks in advance I REALLY NEED this fixed...
  3. Lion & 6450?

    Ok, so I have a pc with the following specifications: intel Core 2 Duo E4500 4GB DDR3 Ram AMD Radeon 6450 I currently have 10.6 installed through SnoLeo (used to have a Celeron 450) (Never figured out how to update to 10.6.8) I have always had problems with my video card as in I couldn't figure out where to find the correct kext, even though my graphics card has 512mb it shows 256mb and even with putting "Graphics Mode"="1920x1080x32" the max resolution I could get was 1400x1050. This is what shows up in System Profiler: Unknown: Chipset Model: Unknown Type: GPU Bus: PCIe Slot: Slot-1 PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 256 MB Vendor: ATI (0x1002) Device ID: 0x6779 Revision ID: 0x0000 ROM Revision: 113-B7710C-176 EFI Driver Version: 01.00.318 Displays: Display: Resolution: 1400 x 1050 Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Display Connector: Now that I have a Core 2 Duo I think I can go the route of [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with Mac OS X Lion. But before I begin I have a few questions. 1.Will the Core 2 Duo E4500 run the vanilla kernel and do you think I'll have any issues? 2.Are there any kexts for the 6450 that will run full resolution of 1920x1080 with QE/CI enabled? 3.Will Chimera fix my video card? Thank you I am awaiting somebodys reply.
  4. HOW TO INSTALL SNOW LEOPARD ON A CELERON 4xx OK so after so many attempted installs I've decided to make a thread about installing 10.6 on a Celeron 4xx so people don't have to go through the hassle I did. I've learned that the vanilla kernel simply will not work for Celeron 4xx's past 10.6.1 so your stuck on there unless you upgrade your CPU. The distro that worked the best for me was using SnowLeo and then installing the 10.6.1 update manually. Make sure to find out what sound card your using & your network driver before you use this... These were my specifications (Updated to a Core 2 Duo) Intel Celeron 450 2.2 GHz (LGA775) 4GB of DDR3 AMD Radeon 6450 (If somebody knows a working kext for this PLEASE tell me) The above were on a Intel G41 chipset motherboard. Installation 1.Choose your own distro of Snow Leopard (***DO NOT USE [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] IT WILL NOT WORK***) 2.In your BIOS make sure you have ACHI set, XD Enabled and make the default to boot from your DVD drive. 3.Boot from your Snow Leopard distro and wait until it gets to the install screen. 4.Click next accept etc... until you get to the menu where it asks you where to install it. 5.Go to Utilities>Disk Utility and go to your hard drive. Click erase and format it as "Snow Leopard" with a GUID partition table. (Name does not matter. 6.Close Disk Utility and in your installer choose the hard drive and in then next menu choose "Customize". 7. Choose your sound & network driver and make sure to uncheck every update to Mac OS X unless its 10.6.1 8.Click next and wait for your install to complete 9.When you reboot your system IT WILL MOST Likely give you kernel panic. 10.IF it does not then your lucky but if it does during boot up in the bootloader type in -v -f 11.It should now work but if it dosent continue to try different distros. My Experience with certain distributions Hazard-Kernel panic iAktos S3 v2-after troubleshooting works SnowLeo-works Universal-after troubleshooting works
