  7. Rules Our goal is ensure that the forum remains a helpful & friendly place to learn about how to run Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware, and of course other general banter. We want you to be able to discuss anything and everything here, and to do so we ask that you check out these guidelines for forum use. Do not upload anywhere else files when developers specifically ask not to. We take this matter very seriously, as developers are the very heart of our community. No Flaming. This includes racism, threatening, personal attacks, victimization or hateful content. Retaliation will not be tolerated either; if a member has broken a rule, please use the report feature on the forum and the staff will deal with the situation appropriately. No posting of direct or indirect links to warez or pirated pieces of software, this includes cracks, serials and torrents. Do not publicly argue the decision of a moderator. If you disagree with a moderator take it up with them in private via PM. Only one (1) login is allowed per member. Duplicate accounts will be banned or deleted. Bumping of posts is not permitted. Other than being less annoying it also keeps the posts more informative. Meaningless and useless posts may be removed at Moderator's discretion. Only post your post once (1). This keeps the forum cleaner and makes it easier to find what you are looking for. No advertising or business offers of any kind. No posting of copyrighted material. This includes copying and pasting news articles from news websites. Attached materials must come with clear descriptions of what they are and what they do, linking to this information elsewhere is not sufficient. Materials derived from Open Source must include source code, as well as an explanation of what has been done to it. Discussion of P2P, torrent sites, or similar download sites of any kind will not be tolerated. We do not want to know your illegal downloading habits. Do not post spyware or any other malware. This includes linking to other sites which may contain it. Posting just to promote another site, product, or service (spamming) is not allowed. This site is not here for you to promote your own or anyone else's material. Discussion of commercial spin-offs of the OSx86 scene is allowed if it’s to understand their existence, but no discussion of how to use them, nor any support for these commercial spin-offs are allowed as they are not in the spirit of the OSx86 scene. Example of commercial spin-off: tonymacx86. Why InsanelyMac does not support tonymacx86 VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ! (ABOUT TONYMACX86 AND iATKOS M / Y / EC / SR) Posting Guidelines If you have a question please do your best to use the search feature and search the forum before creating a new topic. Post in the correct forum and read the forum description. This will make sure that your post will not be removed. Pick an appropriate title and tags (if any) for your post. A good title makes it easier to find what you are looking for. Using informative tags allows for improved searching of related topics. All posts must be clearly written and easy to read. For example, if you have long blocks of text, enclose it in BBCode; if you have code, use a code box, etc. Limit "empty lines" as much as possible, use punctuation where you can and be concise. Posts may be edited for this reasons by InsanelyMac staff at their discretion. Please remember that you are in a public forum, a bit of courtesy is always welcome. It's always nice to start by saying "Hi" or "Hello" before asking a question or seeking help. Also a "thank you" would be appreciated, especially if the help you get is effective. Your topic does not deserve any more attention than others seeking help hence topic titles must reflect their content, and topic titles containing things like: 'please help' 'look here' 'cash reward' 'urgent' or other inaccurate descriptions will be removed. This includes all-caps titles. Give your hardware specs when necessary (asking for support) and any other time where it may be beneficial to have them listed. Signatures, Avatars and Nicks Keep your signature/avatar clean and tidy - should you receive a PM from the staff regarding your signature/avatar, please make the requested alterations or it may be removed/shortened appropriately. To keep pages loading fast for everyone, we request that your signatures and avatars contain no animations or high-definition graphics of any kind. Signatures should be no more than 6 lines of text using a regular font. If you can't fit all of your system specs in that you'd like, why not create a small graphic to contain the information? They should also contain no referral or affiliate program graphics. Avatars should be in "good taste," a qualification that is broad enough to let us determine what is and isn't. Goth-devil-child-wild-eyed-in-the-violent-blackness probably qualifies as being in bad taste. Nothing offensive, pornographic, or vulgar. Nicknames must be readable by the system (without question marks). This will ensure that your nickname can be searched, and that other users can contact you. They should also not contain staff member groups (administrator, moderator, developer, etc.) to prevent confusion. Nicknames should also show respect to the community, thus nothing containing offensive language. Email addresses must be real (nothing like bugmenot or similar). Accounts not in line with the last two rules will be edited or deleted without warning. Policing Do not publicly discuss the decision of a moderator. If there is any issue with a decision of a staff member PM them or contact an admin. Moderators have the ability to suspend or impose posting restrictions upon accounts based on the user's history. Records are kept to keep track of user's behavior and point out repeat offenders. Attempts to circumvent posting restrictions will lead to your account being banned, and any other accounts affiliated with your account being banned also. These rules cover a broad spectrum and are set up to preserve a free and open (and fun) place for discussion. They, in conjunction with common sense and good judgment, should steer you in the right direction. We're all human and we know that people make mistakes... but that's also not an excuse. More rules are subject to appear on this board as we see fit, so please check back from time to time for your own benefit. Thanks for joining our community and helping make it the best it can be. In case the rules localizations should differ, the English rules are the standard.
  8. Hi guys Post here your 'Stylish' theme(s) fantomas InsanelyMac_Light New! InsanelyMac Theme (fixes)
  9. I´m not sure if this is the right place to write about this if not please move this topic to right place. So i made that mistake that i logged/registered here with Facebook login and bought Tapatalk 4 few days ago and been trying to figure out how to login to it. I´ve tried to login with my facebook login, tried to set password etc. but it´s not working. So i googled about this problem and i think it should be installed somehow to forum. If admin could take somehow my facebook login off and make me a normal account without losing my inbox messages etc. Or install that plugin/module whatever it is Thanks in advance!
  10. So, being a reader of this forum since 2012 I have never noticed any major changes or improvements in the forum appearance or functionality. For me the browsing and general order and organisation of the forum is amazing. I love it. I just think maybe it would be time for a little change in the general looks? At this point of time, InsanelyMac for me feels like it is made out of some cheap "Clearlooks" GTK2 theme. For a website as gracious and important and innovative like this one, the visual style seems a little outdated. I think I speak for every user of this forum when I say I would appreciate some innovative website modifications, if it's not too bold to ask. I end this message with my best wishes and regards for all the people that make this website possible, and that keep it alive.
  11. Ciao a tutti ragazzi sono ufficialmente un nuovo membro di insanelymac.com. Spero che possiate risolvere tutti i miei dubbi.. CIAO CIAO!
  12. Hi there, My name is Marshall. I recently downloaded ideneb 1.4 burned it on a disk and wiped out all operating systems on my pc and installed ideneb. Now i tried booting up and it showed that i need to restart my computer twice so i booted in debugging mode and i notice that its a kernel panic. As i am fairly new to osx86, i cannot make out what the problem here is. Also while installing osx86, i choosed a lot of drivers, a lot of those which i didn't need i guess but i did not select any kernels sicne i wasn't sure. Just thought you should know about that. Here is a picture of the screen :- http://i.imgur.com/mfWhl.jpg Its a bit difficult to see but i dont have a camera.

Run OSX Mountain Lion on a Dell Optiplex 780 This tutorial will describe the steps to install Mountain Lion on a Dell Optiplex 780 (this will also works on a 760). The installation goes to the latest update 10.8.5, and when there is a new update i will change the tutorial as soon as possible. If you find any mistakes or have something to improve then please send me a PM and i will update the tutorial. You can also see my configuration on the OSX86 Wiki Project Page. I have also included the PDF file of the guide and the zip files to install Mountain Lion. A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra for using parts of their tutorial. I am from The Netherlands so sorry for my bad English. 1. Credits/Sources Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide: Tech Erra OSX86 Wiki InsanelyMac OSX86.net Forum member Pingu from Germany for helping me out with the text changes. And all other forum members who have posted in my topic and helping out the community. 2. Requirements Here are the requirements: A Dell Optiplex 780 – This is necessary to install mountain lion for this tutorial A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX Lion. Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy of Mountain Lion 10.8 GM – If you don’t have a Mac Developer Account, then you’ll find torrents of 10.8 around the web. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.8 to – For me, I used a 160GB partition to install 10.8 to. An PCI Express Video Card – For use with QE and CI Highly recommended. I use a Ati Radeon HD5450 512MB but 1GB or 2GB also works. Boot780.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared. Install780.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your Dell Optiplex Hardware to work with Mountain Lion OSX. Videofix1083.zip – This ZIP file contains kext files for the videofix in 10.8.3( see chapter 15). Videofix1084.zip – This ZIP file contains kext files for the videofix in 10.8.4( see chapter 16). Note: The files for number 8 Boot780.zip contains the following: FakeSMC.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext OSInstall (Not used for my configuration because I use the entire hard disk) OSInstall.mpkg (Not used for my configuration because I use the entire hard disk) Chameleon_2.1svn_r1820_trunk_10.8.pkg ShowHiddenFiles.app Org.Chameleon.Boot.plist The first 3.kext files will fix most kernel panics and bios reset that you might experience while booting. The 2 OSInstall files will allow you to install 10.8 onto an MBR-partitioned drive. Lastly, the Chameleon package is the bootloader that we’ll be using, and has been specifically compiled for use with 10.8. Note: The files for number 9 Install780.zip contains the following: AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext AppelIntelE1000e.kext ATI5000Injector.kext EFIStudio-1.1.app EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext FakeSMC.kext Kext Utility.app NullCPUPowerManagement.kext VoodooHDA.kext Note: The files for number 10 and 11 Videofix1083.zip and Videofix1084.zip contains the following: AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext ATI5000Controller.kext 3. My Specs My installation was successfully done on an Dell Optiplex 780 Desktop computer with the following specs. NOTE: A PCI video card is recommended to use the full potential of OS of Mountain Lion because the on board video card doesn't support QE/CI. Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93GHz 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM Western Digital 160GB HDD ATI RADEON HD5450 512MB Intel WG82567LM onboard network Bluetooth USB Cambridge silicon radio (works OOB) ADI 1984A HDA audio onboard HP W2207h Monitor 1680×1050 display Apple Magic Trackpad 4. Preparing your SSD or HDD for install on a MBR-partitioned drive If you intent to install OSX86 Mountain Lion On the same Hard disk as your windows follow the steps below. For a clean install on a new formatted hard disk go to Chapter 5. If you’re in Windows 7, you can easily make a new partition on an SSD or HDD via the Disk Managementprogram. Start>Run (or Windows key on your keyboard plus R). diskmgmt.msc (press enter after typing that) Find your drive, right-click on it, and go to Shrink Volume. Wait for it to calculate the amount of space you can make your partition, and enter in your amount (for an exact GB amount, multiple your desired amount of GB times 1024, so a 20GB partition would be 20480MB). Let it make your partition. It will show up as unallocated space. Format the new unallocated space as NTFS and give it a label (mine was ML). Done! 5. Formatting your USB drive Start OSX Lion or Snow Leopard to prepare your USB Flash drive Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB flash drive via Disk Utility in Mac OS X: Extract both zip files (Boot780 and Install780) to your Mac OS x desktop Put USB drive in your Mac Open up Disk Utility. Click on your USB drive in the left sidebar. Click on the Erase tab in the middle. Choose “Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)” as the format, and give your drive a label (like “ML USB”). Click on the Erase… button. Done! Leave Disk Utility open, as you’ll need it later. 6. Preparing your USB drive with 10.8 This part is the most time consuming. Using a USB 3.0 flash drive will help things out quite a bit. Mount the DMG for Mountain Lion (will be called Mac OS X Install ESD on your desktop). Show hidden files by running the app ShowHiddenFiles in the folder Boot780 on your desktop. Click on Show Special Files (leave the app ShowHiddenFiles open we need this later). In the folder MAC OS X Install ESD right click on Basesystem.dmg and choose “ open with DiskImageMounter(default) Switch back to Disk Utility. Click on your flash drive in the left sidebar. Click on the Restore button in the middle area. For the source, drag “Mac OS X Base System” from your desktop into the empty Source box. For the destination, drag your USB drive from your desktop into the empty Destination box. Click on “Restore” and type your password. This process will take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes depending on the speed of your flash drive. When it’s finished, you’ll end up with 2 “Mac OS X Base System” drives on your desktop. Figure out which one is your USB copy (you can right-click > Get Info and use the capacity as an indicator), and rename it to MLINSTALLUSB, after that open it up. Once you’ve opened up MLINSTALLUSB (the one that’s your flash drive), go to /System/Installation. You’ll see a symlink for Packages. Remove it. Create a folder called Packages. Open up a window of the original Mac OS X Install ESD drive and copy everything within Packages to the empty Packages folder on your USB drive. Done! 10.8 is now installed onto your USB drive. Now, we need to modify some of the files on it so that it will properly bootup on a PC. 7. Adding the fixed 10.8 files to the USB drive Now, we need to modify some of the files on your USB drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Open the folder “Boot780” on your Mac OS X desktop. Copy 2 .kext files (FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext) to /System/Library/Extensions on your flash drive. NOTE: The 2 OSInstall files will allow you to install 10.8 onto an MBR-partitioned drive, if you install it on the entire hard disk skip step 3 and 4 an go further with step 5. Copy the OSInstall file to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/, overwriting the file that’s already there. Copy the OSInstall.mpkg file to /System/Installation/Packages/, overwriting the file that’s already there. Run the Chameleon installation package. Make sure to install this package to your flash drive, and customize the installation so that you have an SMBIOS that best relates to the CPU that’s on your computer (leave the default options checked; just check your SMBIOS imac9.1 for the Dell Optiplex 780). Copy now 3 kext files (FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext) from folder Boot780 to /extra/extensions on your flash drive we need this for Chapter 11, Booting 10.8! . Copy mach_kernel from the root of the Mac OS X Install ESD volume and paste it into the root of your flash drive. Lastly, copy extracted folders (Boot780 and Install780) which you have extracted earlier from the zip files to the root of your flash drive. You’ll need this in Chapter 11. Eject all mounted drives (this is not necessary) Go to ShowHiddenFiles and click hide special files after that close program. Eject your USB Drive Done ! 8. Bios Settings Dell Optiplex 780 Before we boot from the Dell Optiplex we need to optimize the bios for Mountain Lion. Start your Dell Optiplex and press F2 to get into the Bios. Go to Boot Sequence and choose on the right for USB Device and click the up arrow so that the USB Device is on top, click on apply to make the setting. Go then to Drives - Sata Operation and choose on the right for Raid Autodetect/AHCI click again on apply and choose exit, now the Bios is ready for installing Mountain Lion. 9. Installing 10.8 from your USB drive Time for the fun stuff! We’ll now boot from your USB drive and install 10.8 onto the partition or Hard Drive. Boot from your USB drive. Once in Chameleon, highlight your flash drive and add -v to the end, then push enter. You’ll see a lot of text fly by be patience startup may take a while. Once you get into the installer (assuming your computer didn’t freeze, restart itself, or get a kernel panic), choose your partition or Hard Disk to install 10.8 to. NOTE : when you install it on a partition skip step 5 - 10 see Chapter 4. (If you install Mountain Lion on the entire Hard disk follow the steps below ) In the installer open up Disk Utility. Click on your Hard Drive in the left sidebar. Click on the Erase tab in the middle. Choose “Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)” as the format, and give your drive a label (like “ML OSX”). Click on the Erase… button. Done close Disk Utility and go further with the installation process. The installation process will take about 5 to 15 minutes, depending on the speed of both your USB drive and your SSD or HDD. When finished, boot back into your already working copy of Mac OS X. 10. Booting 10.8! Now that everything is finally prepared, you can go ahead and boot into Mountain Lion. Boot from your USB drive again your computer won't still be able to boot from the hard drive. Once in Chameleon, highlight your partition that has 10.8 installed. Add -v to it and push enter. You’ll see a lot of text fly by again be patience startup will take a while. You’ll eventually get to the setup screens for 10.8. Go through that process to setup 10.8. Choose by "How Do You Connect" for "My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet" we will fix this later in Chapter 13, go further with the installation process. The installation process will take about 25 minutes, depending on the speed of both your USB drive and your SSD or HDD. Done! Proceed to Chapter 11 to install the bootloader to your partition so that you don’t have to rely on using your USB drive to bootup. 11. Installing the bootloader to 10.8 Once in 10.8 go to finder – preferences –General and choose in show these items on the desktop for - Hard Disk - External Disk - CD Go also to System Preferences – Security& Privacy click on the lock on the left corner and type your password Choose by “Allow applications downloaded from: for “Anywhere – Allow from anywhere Close system preferences. Copy the folders "Boot780" and "Install780" from your USB Device to your Mac OS X desktop after that open up the Chameleon installation package in folder Boot780, and install Chameleon to your 10.8 partition (while choosing your SMBIOS imac9.1, just like before, This is similar to step 5 in Chapter 7.) . Done! 12. Copy org.chameleon.boot.plist to /extra Starting up Mac OS X for the first time on your Hackintosh can be a very tricky process, which often requires you to set special boot options through the use of boot flags. For those of you who don't know, boot flags are "arguments" (pieces of data that you enter) to change the way that your bootloader runs. The bootloader is the program that boots Mac OS X. Boot flags can set the boot options for Chameleon, and any other boot CD or bootloader for Hackintoshes. Read past the break to learn how to use boot flags. There are two ways to apply a boot flag: either by typing it into the bootloader before starting up Mac OS X, or by typing it into org.Chameleon.boot.plist, the settings file used by the bootloader. See also Chapter Common boot options for Chameleon. I have included a org.Chameleon.Boot.Plist for the Dell Optiplex 780 Open the folder “Boot780.” and copy org.chameleon.Boot.Plist Past org.chameleon.Boot.Plist to /extra on your Hard Disk 13. Install the Kext files for de Dell Optiplex 780 hardware Now, we need to install some Kext files on your Hard Disk drive so that the hardware will work properly on your PC. Open the folder “Install780” and select the following Kext files - AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext - AppelIntelE1000e.kext - ATI5000Injector.kext - EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext - FakeSMC.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - VoodooHDA.kext Drag the Kext files (which are mentioned above) over "Kext utility.app" (contained in folder “Install780”) and release the mouse Type your root password and the Kext files will be installed on your Hard disk.

  14. Has anyone read the Wikipedia article these days? It's hideously outdated, lacking lots of information and even, in a certain extent, has wrong information in it. Some examples: Due to the problems sourced during the Lion era,[clarification needed] other ways of installing and required patches were never made public, which leaves the scene in an unknown state towards Mountain Lion.[citation needed] What does it mean? Gossip in the Wikipedia article? Because if there are no reliable sources listed, or no desire to further develop the subject, why post this kind of vague statement? The way it's posted, it makes all the scene, including the many many developers committed to innovating projects like Clover, the opcode emulator and the Chameleon modules, look like a bunch of sissy moronic kids. C'mon! And there's the wrong information: the scene definetely isn't "in an unknown state towards" Mountain Lion (be it what it means). It's precisely the opposite: The tools and methods for hackintoshing were never that powerful and mature, thanks to that many developers committed to it. In fact, hackintosh, since Mountain Lion, is more and more approaching the state of "just working". The support is broad, even for usually problematic hardware. Which takes us to another example: After a while Dmitrik also known as Bronzovka had luck with creating a kernel which supported AMD systems; its development is still ongoing. Took as is, the above statement leads to the idea there isn't a really stable Lion kernel for AMD machines (and the article doesn't make a mention to all the recent development of a kernel not only for AMD machines, but legacy Intel rigs as well). The plain fact is that, since the first R:A:W:X86 AMD kernel for 10.7.4, at least newer AMD CPUs have full support. Bronzovka, Shane and R:A:W:86 have had various degree of success enabling full support for older AMD CPUs. Of course, development is still ongoing, as with any thing hackintosh-related, but we've been highly successful with it. The omission of the latest AMD kernel development, if deliberate, is absolutely unfair! Thanks to the drive brought by this development, now we have the opcode emulator, a wonderful tool made by Sinetek, that enables all the missing CPU instructions, enabling full OSX support for a large plethora of hardware. Since the opcode emulator is coded in plain C, it's cross-platform par excellence, and i can reasonably think about it being used on Linux, BSD and even Windows (imagine someone who wants to run latest games on older hardware: enter the opcode emulator). Why worry about the Wikipedia article?, some would think or say. Well, if we have a free internet outdoor with quite outstanding visibility, it better advertise it right. It's the same with Wikipedia, one of the most accessed sites on the world wide web. I don't know how the article edition is really done, but we better make sure people familiar with the scene (like Insanelymac staff) is heard.
  15. Many users wonder why we do not support tonymac's products here at InsanelyMac. The reason is that we believe he is a commercial spin-off of the OSx86 scene, and it's not in the spirit of OSx86 to have commercial intents with development. These are the main reasons why we don't approve posting his material here (why he's a commercial spin-off): 1. His software is not open source. This is often confused because most people equate open source software with free software. This is definitely true, but it doesn't grasp the entire scope of open source; open source also includes releasing source code for the product, which tonymac fails to do. The OSx86 community believes everything should be open source. 2. The construction of his site is set up with emphasis on donation buttons and (affiliate) links to Amazon and Newegg, hinting at interests of profit. 3. The intent of gaining profits is basically confirmed by marketing his projects with suggestions of donations as though he deserves it, even though his products (most notably #####) is a compilation of products/drivers developed by others (not himself) that any non-programmer could put together. 4. You must pay for the tonymac software. Although this may seem reasonable considering the effort involved in building a customized installer for specific computer builds, again, it is not in the spirit of OSx86 to charge for software development, so the wiser idea would most likely be not to offer that service at all. Even though it may be nice for newbies, in my opinion it does not encourage education but rather laziness. I say this because the OSx86 movement is designed as an educational movement, where by hacking Mac OS X you can learn more about the operating system works, how computers work, etc., like how many of us do. However, the purpose of OSx86 is not a way to get a cheap Mac, which I personally believe is encouraged by tonymac's software considering it is marketed to perform a task without any sort of explanation of how it works. From another perspective: http://prasys.info/2011/01/tonymac-seriously/ This covers one of the issues brought up by developers.
