scott847 replied to smartie77's topic in Installation GuidesHello, I have been following this guide for a Toshiba Satellite L515-S4925 unit. I assumed that the hardware was similar enough for many of these kexts to work, but indeed life is not that simple and a full install with this guide ultimately leads to kernel panic. I was curious if anyone who had tried this guide had any insight into my specific hardware. I have not been able to find much information on this model via searches on the forums or google relating to turning it into a hackintosh. I have successfully been able to install Snow Leopard 10.6 and update to 10.6.8 without problems. Sound works with kext in the above method, but thats about it. The native kexts that are present on the i-boot 3.2 cd I am using have allowed me to use the integrated keyboard and trackpad without problems; however, when I install a boot loader (I've only tried Chimera 1.9) I am unable to use the integrated keyboard and trackpad. Does anyone know why this is? Is it overwriting the kext files that are used from i-boot? At the moment, these are the only hardware differences I am aware of are that the L515-S4925 has: Graphics - Intel GMA 4500M Chipset - Intel GL40 Any help or direction is much appreciated! Thanks, Scott
