  1. Hey everyone I have spend my last 3 days watching every youtube video, fourm, blog and have tried every which way to get Mac OS X onto my computer, now I know it's not my computer cause people that have the same motherboard and processor are having luck. I have downloaded and tried a TON of different Snow Leopard.iso files and none of which work to any extent, the furthest I am able to get is to a Kernel Panic. something like this appears: nfs_boot_init failed Networking is not initialized Backtrace terminated invalid rame pointer I was using Darwine, now from recent blogs and fourms I was told to use the "Chocolate Kernel" Because the darwine kernel won't work with AMD, I need help finding a download that will work on my Computer that has the Chocolate Kernal instead of the darwine or Vanilla Kernal. And all my other .iso installation cd's keep saying "still waiting for boot device" So I'm going to stick with the one that gives me a panic, just because it gets me further then the other ones. My computer won't even boot into the installation part of everything, I get to the part where i put -v then i have a black screen then thats when i get my panic, i get my panic from a Darwine kernel, so maybe I need the chocolate kernal, snow leopard iso, I cant find it nor do I know how to change kernels on the intallations cd's. Someone please help me. I also don't care what version of snow leopard it is as long as it will get the OS X on my computer and I don't want to use any of that VMWare {censored}! Once I have snow leopard OS X 10.6.X installed succesfully I plan on doing an upgrade to OS X Lion, PLease someone help me. My Computer Information: OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit System Manufacturer: Biostar System Model:N68S3B Processor: Amd Phenom II X4 820 2800Mhz(4 Cores) Bios Version: 08.00.15 Smbios: 2.6 Ram: 4gb DDR3 Ram HDD: 1TB Internal Sata Hard Drive CD/DVD: Sata DVD RW Drive Graphics: ATI Radeon HD5450 1GB graphics card P.S. I hope this is enought information for you to figure out what is going on. Both my cd drive and hard drive are both sata, thats not a problem it just means i type rd=Disk0, it being sata does not alter the boot process its the kernel. Please help. I'm actually pretty smart when it comes to computers so i can understand computer talk and can follow quit easily, but i have hit a stop in the road and I am stumped.
  2. Ok, so... I'm running across this issue... I'm CURRENTLY running a 10.7.1 OS X Lion on this: Mobo: BioStar G31D-M7 [Latest BIOS Upgrade] Ram: 2GB Installed on single channel Mac OS X 10.7.1 installed on a SATA HDD [320GB] What's working: - Ethernet - Audio - Video - Youtube [via HTML5] - [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] I originally tried to upgrade from 10.7 to 10.7.5 but that was a COMPLETE disaster, as I was welcomed with "Still Waiting For Root Device" time after time after time So I baby-stepped it -- reinstalled Mac OS X 10.7 [due to a smart backup on another HDD that had 10.6.8 installed onto it] and tried to upgrade from 10.7.1 > 10.7.2... "Still Waiting For Root Device" I've seen the AHCI fix for this, but... I'm not exactly sure if that's compatible with my MOBO. Any chance that 10.7.1 will be the HIGHEST upgrade possible for this old machine???
  3. Saludos a la comunidad. Tengo mucho tiempo de no publicar. Les deseo comunicar que hecho andar Maverick retail en una Biostar H61MGV3 con 8GB de RAM DDR3 Kingston, funciona muy bien con una tarjeta gráfica NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX 768 MB, Procesador 2.99 GHz Intel Core i5. Tiene también instalado una tarjeta PCI Express x1 2.0 Western Digital USB 3.0 funcionando sin problemas, según el fabricante incompatible con Mac pero a mi me funciona muy bien. No funciona o no logre levantar el audio de la placa, la solución una Creative Sound Blaster USB 2.0 Metodo de instalación: Cree un instalador USB a partir de Maverick install.app descargado de la Tienda de Apple luego use un bootloader para hacerla boot y con ello instale el sistema, es necesario desactivar en la placa Biostar el VT-x, colocar la configuración en UEFI, AHCI Para hacer funcionar la tarjeta de red se debe instalar una kext actualizada para la Realtek RTL8111G la cual lo contiene el último bootloader disponible. Espero que les sirva a mas de alguno que desee o tenga a su disposición esta placa.
  4. Greetings InsanelyMac Community, I'm very interested in creating a Hackintosh out of my new computer, mainly for production purposes and because the MacOS platform is the middle ground between Linux (which I'm very familiar with) and Windows (which I'm not very fond of). I have purchased a Lion USB Key from Apple and have tried a few install methods I've found on these forums and Tonymacx86 though nothing has really worked. I haven't beenable to even load into the install program for Lion, so I'm not really sure what the best method of getting Lion and ultimately Mountain Lion are for my system. System Specs Biostar TPower X79 Motherboard Intel Core i7 3820 Sandy-Bridge CPU SanDisk Extreme 120 GB SSD WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 16GB 2133MHz RAM EVGA GeForce 670 GTX GPU I don't even know if its possible, but any help or guides would be fantastic. I don't know much about DSDT editing and specific hardware kexts, but thank you in advanced for your help!
  5. I have successfully installed lion 10.7.2 onto my AMD machine. A machine that is HIGHLY unsupported and has a motherboard that basically no one else has. Everything works perfectly. I want to give back to all those that helped me, and generally helped my community, so here is a guide that hopefully a few of you will use. This is when using 2 separate disks per operating system. So if you are wanting to dual boot on ONE hard drive, DON'T follow this. This guide also shows you how to install it entirely WITHOUT a spare Mac machine. What you are going to need: iAtkos L2 install DMG (google) A 4.7Gb DVD A windows machine TransMac (HERE) A 8GB flash drive (explained later) Bronzovka's Kernel - I forgot which one I used so I uploaded it (HERE) PowerISO (or any equivalent ISO burner that can burn DMG) Additional installation things like Voodoo and network (HERE) Let's start: Firstly we need to prepare our installation disc. Launch TransMac (as administrator), and then click 'Open -> Open Disc Image'. Open the iAtkos L2 DMG you have downloaded. Right click on the image and click 'expand'. A dialog box will pop up asking you where to put it - put it on the desktop for easier access. That will take a bit of time to complete. Once completed, open that image with TransMac, the same way you did with the original DMG. Now we are going to add our kernel. Right click in the space of your expanded image, and click 'Copy Here'. Navigate to your mach_kernel and paste it there. Overwrite it. Now open up PowerISO (as administrator), and insert a blank disk. Use DVD-R, its the safest bet. Then click burn, and select disk image. Select the image that you expanded (so NOT the iAtkos L2 one). Let it burn. It doesn't matter what speed really (I did mine on the top speed and it was fine) Our media is finished! Next (Optional): This is my recovery option. Due to having 1000 problems with Macintosh before, I created a 'recovery' flash drive. This basically had every patched kernel there is, a few kexts that I knew were sometimes faulty in the installer and a fresh copy of the installer (copied out with TransMac). This saved my skin after I updated to 10.7.5. You don't NEED to do it, but rather be safe than sorry, right? Install: Restart your Windows machine (do a full restart, don't hit the button). Go into your BIOS and make sure the following is done: Chipset -> Northbridge Configuration -> SATA Mode -> AHCI Boot -> Boot device priority -> (your dvd drive) Now save changes and exit. Boot: Once you pass the AHCI initialization and the 'post' screen start hitting F8 furiously. You will be greeted with the iAtkos L2 boot screen. Make sure the disk is highlighted (use your arrow keys to navigate), and type in the following flags: -v USBLegacyOff=Yes npci=0x2000 These worked for me and my motherboard, they may be different. If they don't work play around with them a bit. Once the disk has been loaded its gonna take about 10 minutes to load everything. It will 'seem' like its hanging on "...IO.Bluetooth..." but it really isn't. Just give it time. A lot of time. Go play with your dog or cat while you wait. If all is okay you will enter the installer (WOOOO!) Install: In the menu bar of the installer select Utilities -> Disk Utility. Let it load up. Select the hard drive you want to install (be careful not to select your Windows hard drive), and then erase it or partition it. I created a 20Gb partition called 'SAFETY' and a 140Gb hard drive called 'MAC'. SAFETY hard drive is used for, well, safety. I install any new updates and kexts on my safety hard drive before I apply them to my main. Once that is done quit the utility and continue with the installer. You may customize but I honestly left it how it was. Hit install and go have some ice tea. Once the install is complete DON'T DON'T DON'T restart. I always hastily restarted and forgot about my kernel. Go to Utilities -> Terminal. Type in the following: cp /mach_kernel /Volumes/Mac Mac was the name of my Mac hard drive, change it with whatever you called it. First boot: Now we can boot properly. Go back into your bios and set the boot device to your Mac hard drive. Save changes and exit. Once you have gone past the 'post' screen hit F8 furiously as before. You will once again be greeted by iAtkos (what a nice fellow). Select the mac hard drive this time and type in the EXACT same flags you used for your installation. If everything is okay you should boot up fine! Follow the first-time set up and see how beautiful your little Mac looks. Changes: We now need to make a few changes to make our startups a little more easy. In finder search for 'champlist'. Load it up. It will bug you about the internet if there is none, just dismiss it. Select configurations. At the bottom click the bar where it shows the directory of the boot.plist. Make sure it is set to your hard drive and NOT the disk. Tick the following: -v (verbose mode) npci=0x2000 Also hit 'Edit as text' and type in the following after the last <string><key> combination. <string>USBLegacyOff</string> <key>Yes</string> Now you can click save. It will ask you for your password. Enter it and you're done. (This will remove the need to have to hit F8 furiously every time you boot. I also include -v [its not pretty], but its good to see that everything is loading properly). You will also need to install VoodooHDA to get audio working. Install it. You also need to install RTGMac to get the ethernet port working as well. Success! Your Macintosh should be working 100% perfectly now. Optional - Update: Lots of applications will not work unless you have 10.7.4 / 5 installed. So it is in your best interest to do so. Download the massive update and lets get to it. Firstly, download THIS kernel. It is bronzvoka's 10.7.5 kernel. Mount the update DMG and start it. Once it is complete DON'T DON'T DON'T restart. Copy the kernel you just downloaded to the root of your Mac drive. Also make sure it is named mach_kernel and not anything else. Reboot and everything should work just fine. There you have it. A fully working Macintosh install. This will be stable enough to use as your main machine. I am a web developer and am now using Macintosh to develop rather than my Windows. It is far better. My specs, just for reference: AMD Athlon II 3.3Ghz BIOSTAR A780L ATI Radeon HD5770 4Gb DDR2 RAM Feel free to post any problems you may have. I will be happy to help! Goodluck!
