  1. Is it possible to install an older OS X.5 Leopard or OS X.6 Snow Leopard Hackintosh system on a modern i7 processor PC? I need to to run either of those systems using an Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core Desktop Processor on a Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H motherboard. I saw this post where someone said “Clover 32Bit should boot Leopard as well, using Legacy mode. You will need 32bit kexts as well.” https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/331457-bootloader-for-leopard/ .. Would that be valid advice for me to follow up on for my configuration? I see that Clover 32 bit is no longer in development.. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/317521-good-bye-clover-32/
  2. Hi all, i Recently managed to install snow leopard 10.6.3 on my AMD Machine however i am having an issue with my graphics card not being detected stopping me from changing my resolution, The info that is displayed for my graphics is Type: GPU Bus: PCie PCie Lane Width: x16 VRam (Total): 256 MB Vendor: ATI (0X1002) Device ID: 0x6758 Revision ID: 0X0000 Kernel Extension Info: No Kext Loaded Resolution: 800 x 600 Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888) Main Display: Yes Mirror: off Online: Yes My computer specs Are: MOBO: ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 RAM : 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz CPU : AMD Phenom x4 Quad-Core 965 OC @ 3.80GHz Video card: Ati Sapphire Radeon 6670 1GB DDR5 Im a noob to the hackintosh scene and i may not understand certain terms or procedures, im also not quite sure the correct procedure to install kexts so apologies beforehand for my lack of knowledge and i hope you can guide me with helping me resolve this issue
  3. Hello all. I am new to these forums and Hackintoshes in general. I successfully installed OS X Snow Leopard using an official Snow Leopard install DVD I own and some other booting tools. I suppose I don't have an official Hackintosh in the sense that I run OS X from as a guest machine. If it helps, I use Oracle's VirtualBox. The VM runs perfectly fine. I used a combined update to update from the first version of Snow Leopard (available on the install disk) to the last/latest version of Snow Leopard. So, with that being said, is it possible to update the operating system while my guest is running without having to change things around? I'd ideally like to be running OS X Yosemite. The Yosemite OS update is available from the App Store for free right now, but I'm a little hesitant to run it at the moment. I was reading somewhere that you should only update your Hackintosh with combined updates from Apple. Any truth to this? I sincerely apologize for my ignorance. As you can tell, I'm still learning. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    ATI 7500 Mobility (T42) Quartz Extreme Help.

    Hello, I am trying to hack/fix QE on a ATI 7500. I have installed iPC 10.5.6 and upgraded to 10.5.8. with some minor tweaks. VGA works but not with QE. I have read mostly all posts regarding QE and 7500. It was made to work with Tiger 10.4. Same kext / pkg does install nicely on Leopard. To gain better performance I am struggling with hacks to make this VGA card work. I downloaded from code.google.com 7500 package. Installed it. Also changed AGPGart.kext Info.plist to match my config. Always after restart added manualy -f to kernel flags so it would load kexts and changes in AGPGart.kext. For now I am not lucky to configure it. I did search for KEXTs but did not find anything that would be useful. Also seen that OpenGL would need to be patched?? same hack as AGPGart.kext? If anyone could make this kext work I would gladly pay you for your service. I am happy with 10.5.8 version on this older laptop. Works better than ubuntu and windows. I seem to be loving this version very much. Hope someone has some time to spare.
  5. Hallo zusammen, ich besitze eine Dell Precision M 70 mit Pentium M Dothan 2,13 Ghz 533 Mhz FSB Mainboard: Chipsatz Intel 915 PM mit 2 Gig Ram Graphik: NVIDIA Quadro FX Go1400 mit 512 MB Audio: Sigmatel 9751 Broadcom NetXtreme 57XX Gigabit Lan (funktioniert nicht unter OsX, Ip Adresse Und einen Broadcom Bcm DWI 1450 Wireless Adapter, anstelle des originalen Intel Wireless 2200BG Adapter, da mit letzterem kein Internetzugang möglich war. Einzige Einschränkung beim Broadcom 1450 ist, daß er kann nur eine Wep Verschlüßelung kann. Es läuft ein OsX 10.5.2, das habe ich damals (vor ca 5 Jahren) von einem Bekannten via USB Platte und CarbonCopyCloner bekommen. Eine Kalyway 10.5.2 Installation hängt nach 1 min am BCM5751E Ethernet : „ 1659 setPowerLevels – returning early have a 5721onoff=, fPciDeviceceld= “ Eine iAtkos 10.5.5 DVD installiert zwar ein Leopard, hängt sich dann aber beim Booten mit Kernel panic auf. Abgesegnet haben wir die Platte damals im Terminal mittels eines bootefi Ordner aus dem Netz in welchem alle relevanten Dateien/Ordner – usr – standalone – i386 – mit den Dateien boot, boot0, boot_V8, boot1h, boot1u, bootefi, cdboot, chain0 und den Ordnern guid und mbr enthalten waren und folgender Anleitung: - Easy installation --- For Single-Booting systems --- Copy the folder "bootefi" and all included files/folders to the root directory of either a USB Thumb drive, or a USB hard drive, click on the Utilities menu and select "Terminal". Then enter the following commands: sudo -s (then enter your root password) cd /Volumes/usbvolname/bootefi where usbvolname is the volume name of the USB Thumb drive, USB hard drive, or second internal drive where the "bootefi" folder was copied to. ./bootefi.sh installvolumename where installvolumename is the volume name of the drive that OSX was installed to. The installvolumename should be surrounded by double quotes. Example: ./bootefi.sh "MacHD" or ./bootefi.sh "Macintosh HD" Hab nach langer Abstinenz die M 70 wieder rausgekramt, jetzt macht aber meine Hd Probleme … schwebende Sektoren etc., deshalb habe ich das laufende 10.5.2 via CCC auf eine neue Festplatte geklont. Leider funktioniert obige Methode zum absegnen nicht mehr, sprich Platte bleibt beim blinkenden Cursor stehen L Da aber auch iTunes Version 7, Firefox Version 2 und Safari Version 3.1nicht mehr up to date sind, ich z.B. keine E-mails etc. mehr abrufen kann und eine Aktualisierung nicht mehr möglich ist, neuere dmg wie Safari 5 oder 4, Firefox10.5.2 oder iTunes 10.7 sich auch nicht mehr installieren lassen, würde ich jetzt am liebsten auf was Neueres umsteigen, vielleicht ne Snow Leopard 10.6.8 oder wenn möglich noch neuer, Lion oder Mountain Lion. Hat das schon mal jemand auf ner ollen M 70 hingekriegt? Was muß ich da beachten? Hat jemand ne Anleitung für mich? lg
  6. Inception After my experience with iAtkos s3 v2 and Acer Aspire One D150 i decided to write a guide can help someone. Hardware Config: This is the hardware configuration of my Acer Aspire One D150-1Bb. It's very important check the components. CPU: Intel Atom N270 @ 1,6Ghz 32-bit RAM: Corsair 2Gb Video: Display Intel 945GSE Wireless: Broadcom4312 Ethernet: Atheros AR8121 Whats is necessary 1. USB Pen 8Gb 2. Ethernet Network 3. An other Hackintosh o Mac 4. Many patience. Pre-Install: Boot from USB After you download the iAtkos s3 v2 (Snow Leopard 10.6.3) ISO you can restore it on USB at least 8Gb. You can do it with another Mac or Hackintosh, or if you have external DvD reader, you can create a DvD to boot. Restore the ISO of iAtkos with Utility Disk and then you must install the bootloader. The only one that works for me it was Chameleon v2 RC4. Pay attention where you install the bootloader! Chameleon 2.0 RC4.zip After that the iAtkos is ready to install. Installation The BIOS Put the USB before start the PC. On Start push F2 to access to BIOS where we need to set the Hard Disk in SATA Mode. So, from "Information" tab slide to "Main" tab and scroll down to "SATA Mode". Set it on "AHCI". After that slide to "Boot" tab and scroll down to USB HDD, pushing F6 take the usb on the first place. Now save all with F10 and Yes. The USB will boot. The Installer I don't write flag on boot for the installation, if you have some problems you can try with verbose (-v). During the installation the trackpad will not work, but the keyboard yes, so you can use a USB Mouse (mine is a wireless mouse, so i suppose they works). With Utility Disk create the partition e go on with the installation. When you select the partition where you want install iAtkos, go on Customization (button on bottom left - I'm Italian, so my label is different). You need to install: Bootloader: Chameleon v2 RC4 (the others bootloader gives to me only problems) Bootloader Options: GraphicsEnabler, USBFix Patches: /Extra directory, fakesmc, Disabler, RTC, Modified Kernels -> Intel Atom, USB, UUID Main Hardware: SATA/IDE: AHCI SATA, Intel SATA/IDE Audio: Voodoo Audio PS/2: Voodoo PS/2 CPU Power Management: select all Laptop Hardware: Battery, Card Reader, TSC Sync VGA: Intel (select the first three voice) Network: Wireless: don't select anything. Bcm4312 card gives to me some problem during the first boot, so we will install it after. Wired: Atheros (Select all) Now you can install iAtkos s3 v2. Post-Install: il primo avvio Try one first boot without flag on boot, if you can't start try with these: -v -f npci=0x2000 arch=i386 cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No(o Yes) Follow the first boot and the configuration of your account and now download all necessary files for setting up the aspire one, because after that you can have some USB problems. Now reboot. Because the CPU is an Intel Atom we need to use a modified kernel. You can find here ( here the original post) the atom kernel of Snow Leopard 10.6.8 . More or less i followed the post step by step, skipping some step about SL 10.6.7. IT'S VERY IMPORTANT do a backup of the kext IOUSBFamily.kext e IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext that are necessary to work the USB after the update, that replaces this files. What you have to do: 1. Download and unzip the kernel on Desktop 2. Start Terminal.app and write this sudo -s mv ~/Desktop/mach_kernel_atom / cd ~/Desktop mkdir backup cd /S*/L*/E* cp -R AppleHDA.kext ~/Desktop/backup/ cp -R IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext ~/Desktop/backup/ cp -R IOUSBFamily.kext ~/Desktop/backup/ Now you can start the update ONLY FROM COMBO UPDATE (you can find here). IT'S VERY IMPORTANT that, when update finish: NOT reboot. 3. Back on Terminal and write cd /S*/L*/E* rm -Rf AppleIntelGMA950.kext rm -Rf AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext rm -Rf AppleHDA.kext cp -R ~/Desktop/backup/* ./ 4. Delete SleepEnabler.kext On my installation the "Extra" folder was hidden, so with ShowHiddenFiles.app you need to show it. ShowHiddenFiles.zip Delete SleepEnabler.kext from /Extra/Extensions*. *(If you don't find SleepEnabler.kext on /Extra/Extensions search it on /Sistema/Libreria/Extensions) What you need to do if you forget to delete SleepEnabler.kext 5. Restore USB kext We put "backups" folder on S/L/E (/System/Library/Extensions) folder so copy IOUSBFamily.kext and IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext and paste it on /S/L/E. If you not have a backup there is mine: USB Fix 10.6.8.zip Repair permissions with KextUtility. 6. Edit kernel on boot.plist On my Extra folder i don't have any org.chameleon.boot.plist, so i edit com.apple.boot.plist on /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration. Copy the file and past it on Desktop, then open it with TextEdit.app, changing: <key>Kernel</key> <string>custom</string> to <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel_atom</string> PAY ATTENTION about you write. For a wrong word the system doesn't boot Check that the value <key>USBBusFix</key> <string>Yes</string> is in the file. Now save and copy com.apple.boot.plist in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration replacing the older. [if you want you can copy it also on /Extra] If you want: You can create org.chameleon.boot.plist copying the text of com.apple.boot.plist and you can create the smbios.plist file with Chameleon Wizard to put it on /Extra. 6. Now you can reboot. First boot after Update to 10.6.8 Now we not have any VGA driver, so: 1. from the backup folder restore the AppleHDA.kext on /System/Library/Extensions. 2. unzip the VGA drivers: 3438-GMA950 for 10.zip and put all files on /S/L/E/. 3. Repair the permissions with KextUtility.app 4. Reboot. Wireless 1. From SLE copy IONetworkingFamily.kext and past it on Desktop. 2. Now put it on /Extra/Extensions. (Don't skip the copy on Desktop or you can have permissions problem) 3. Unzip the driver Broadcom Broadcom43XXFamily.kext.zip and put it on /Extra/Extensions 4. Repair permissions 5. Reboot Issues Trackpad: After the repair of USB and reboot the trackpad doesn't works, so i fixed it with this pkg VoodooPS2Controller.pkg.zip USB recognized by System Information but not mounted: You need to restore IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext (at the end of topic) and IOUSBFamily.kext, both of kext. At the time all seems works! Credits A special thanks to carbo178, which helped me to solve all the problems after installation and without whom I would have (most likely) trashed my netbook Files Chameleon 2.0 RC4.zip ShowHiddenFiles.zip USB Fix 10.6.8.zip Kernel Atom qui (Original post qui) 3438-GMA950 for 10.zip Broadcom43XXFamily.kext.zip VoodooPS2Controller.pkg.zip

    iPhone 4S on 10.5.7?

    Hi, I'm new to the forum but I've been doing installs of Mac OS on hackintoshes for about 2 years. I recently reinstalled 10.5.7 (iAtkos V7) on my Acer TravelMate 2490 and now I find out that I can't sync my iPhone 4S with it, because it requires 10.5.8 or later (sic) and it almost makes me go back to Windows My question: is it possible to make my computer "think" it's 10.5.8 without really being so? I've had some unpleasant experiences with hackintoshes I updated (kext incompatibilities etc.) and I don't want to update. I spent too much time only by making my 10.5.7 system go as smooth as possible (working trackpad, sound, 1/2 of the wifi and everything else).

    Leopard no notebook

    problema solucionado
  11. Hi all, I have been working on my hackintosh for a few days now, and I finally got everything working fine (except WEP for wifi). I have used ideneb 1.3 (Leopard 10.5.5). But after installing the combo update 10.5.8, everything is messed up. I can't even boot. I get a message at the beginning of the booting process telling me that I have to restart my computer. I tried safe mode (-x), I tried (busratio=20), I even repaired the permission via the disk utility of the Ideneb DVD. Nothing's changed. Do you have any idea on how to fix this up ? Thanks for your time and help
  12. Quite simply, ive just done a fresh install of iAtkos 5i, and it said it was successful, however after the restart, it wont boot anything. The apple logo flashes on then it restarts the laptop. Ive tried everything from typing rd=0,1 -v -f -x to just -v and still no luck >.< i have also tried Chameleon (burned to a disk and booted up) and ###### (burned to disk also) but chameleon hangs here and ###### just goes black and never loads anything. Ive installed it twice and chose chameleon and the other option but that didnt change anything either. What have I, or am i doing wrong XD ive googled it for about 2 hours and still cant solve the problem >.< My laptop specs are 40gb Hard drive 1gb Ram Pentium 4 3.6ghz processor ATI Radeon IGP 345M 128mb reaktek ALC203 - 16-bit CD-quality stereo sound I dont know if i need to add anymore o.O
  13. Hey there I searching a guide for inatall snow leopard in my dell latitude d620. I looked a guide but need the retail dvd,and i dont have one. I can inatall without the retail dvd? Please help me.
  14. So, I'm running Mac OS X snow Leopard in VirtualBox and I got everything working pretty well. Slow downs here and there, but it's VirtualBox. I successfully updated it to 10.6.8 and had to force edit PLists to get a good resolution. Now, I'm wondering, how can I get proper drivers for it? I mainly want to do this so that I can test Minecraft type things (like say I fork something like InsideJob and I want to test if it works or not) and also, to get the sexy transparent menubar. Whenever i run minecraft, I get an LWJGL/OpenGL sort of bug and I'm not quite sure how to fix it. In addition, the App Store is very slow and Im thinking graphics might help a little =P So, if you guys need anything else about the computer besides the following information, let me know below Compter: Lenovo IdeaCentre Intel Pentium Dual Core 3.2 ghz 4 gb of ram (~3.7 usable) Intel Express Chipset (Allocated 128 mb along with 3D and 2D acceleration) Windows 7 Ultimate x64/~20gb Alloated for an Ubuntu 11.04 partition I really hope you guys can help me, I'm not expecting to be able to play Minecraft on super duper settings with decent FPS but I at least want to be able to play it with all the settings turned down and at least get 25 FPS just to test =) Thanks in advanced, Mike PS, I used LeoHazard 10.6.2 as my install base and updated it to 10.6.8 =P

    osx in toshiba nb100/250

    Hello, I'm new in the forum but i was looking it for years. I installed some versions on hackintosh in diferent computers and it goes great! The thing is that i have the summer holidays and i have a lot of free time and i there's something that i wanted to do since last year. Do a hackintosh in my netbook. I have two netbooks: The nb100 and the nb250. The 100 is running xp and the 250 windows 7. I don't want a dualboot, just osx, doesn't matter the version but at least up from 10.5, because i use the computer for djing, music production and also y record my guitar and something more. I know that is a little machine and i can't do super project but it's something for learning and for make fun. In conclussion, now a days wich of them has more compatibility: nb250 or nb100? It's important the audio outputs work and the wifi is a thing that i know that i will have to change. P.D: I have and external usb dvd burner So, thank you and please some help will be great
  17. I'm wondering if I should update to 10.5.8 Most programs like GIMP need 10.5.7, so I go to update, and notice 10.5.8 - should I do this? I know that GIMP will work on 10.5.8, it's that I don't know whether I will screw something up. I want to update because of app compatibility - I tried installing SL before (iATKOS S3 v2) but it failed so I'm using 10.5 (imo I like Leopard and SL more than Lion.) My main reasons are to do with Safari and GIMP - iTunes keeps nagging me to get Safari 4.0.3 and GIMP is one of my favourite free editors.
  18. Is there a Snow Leopard or even a Leopard distro out there that would be compatible with my PC? Processor Type: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Processor Speed: 2GHz Chipset: NVIDIA nForce 410 RAM: 1GB Graphic Processor: NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Motherboard: Foxconn C51GU01 Any help or information would be appreciated.
  19. Hey guys. I'm having a bit of trouble installing OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.2 on my computer. It is a custom build, Asus P5K (not wifi or premium or anything, just plain old P5K P35 chipset), Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300, 2GB Corsair DDR2 ram, 400GB HDD. When i boot into the install disk it says a file is missing (can't tell coz it goes so quickly) and goes straight to the advanced boot options. When i press enter it says "enter two digit hexadecimal code" or something and i've tried all possibilities. Including 9f to see if it will boot to the dvd drive. I have tried all the startup commands like -v and -cpus=1 and stuff, none of them seem to work. However if i use my brother's Toshiba U300-13U laptop it boots fine and installs to anywhere. It doesn't even come up with that files missing error. I installed it to an external HDD and it runs fine. Although on my desktop the resolution is weird and i can't change it at all. Also i want the OS X system on my desktop's hard drive since other people always need the external one. Can you guys help? Thanks in advance, Huzi.
  20. Hello. I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 with an ATI X1300 graphics card and a Core 2 Duo 1.83Mhz. I wanted to put Snow Leopard or Lion on it but I can't seem to get it to work. iAtkos S3 V2 doesn't install for some reason and I tried Hazard but that kept freezing up and crashing. I tried iAtkos L2 and everything worked fine except my mouse ran very very slow. Does anyone know any good Snow Leopard distros or a way to fix my mouse on L2? Thanks in advance.
  21. Hello! I would really appreciate some guidance. I am planning to install Leopard on my laptop with Ideneb 1.6 (10.5.8) Lite, which is supposed to work pretty good. What I need and am actually looking for is Snow Leopard 10.6 at least. Do I understand correctly that I need to install Leopard first? Will my components work with Snow Leopard? Motherboard: HCW51 L03 CPU: Turion 64 MK-36 (512 KB L2 cache) RAM: 4GB Graphics: ATI Radeon® Xpress 1100 Ethernet: Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC Wifi: Atheros AR5005G Wireless Network Adapter Thankfull for any help.
  22. I have VMWare Workstation 8 and an AMD system(AMD-V Enabled), and I would love to install Snow Leopard on it. But I can't find any decent guides to do this, and I'm looking for some guidance. I want to install it with the least modifications as possible. So could anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks all in advance.

  24. Hello everyone, Here's my guide on how to install Mac OS X Snow Leopard on an Acer Aspire X3400. You can also find it on InfiniteMac, OSx86.net, and Acert0sh, my website for it. Before you begin, you'll need: A retail Snow Leopard .dmg A flash drive with at least 8 GB of space A working Mac (whether it be another Hackintosh or a Virtual Machine) A nawcom modCD Any Linux LiveCD Also, before you begin, make sure you have these files on a CD or DVD: IOUSBFamily.kext Kext Utility Chameleon Bootloader /Extra folder Legacy Kernel for OS X 10.6.0 OS X Driver for Ralink RT3090 The Chameleon Bootloader, /Extra folder, and the Legacy Kernel can be found in the guide below. 1. Follow this guide: Phil Tesone Dot Com » Hackintosh Note: If your Acer PC is instantly rebooting at or after the "DSMOS has Arrived" stage, and you recently installed a graphics card in the PCI-E x16 slot, I've found it to be extremely helpful to simply remove it while booting the installer. However, if you have a graphics card that does work with the installer, please report back here and post your graphics card model, just so we can save some users some headache. 2. When you're done following his guide, don't boot from the flash drive. Boot from your nawcom modCD with the following parameters: cpus=4 busratio=16 arch=i386 -force64 3. When you're inside OS X successfully, swap your modCD with the CD with all your files in it. 4. Copy the /Extra folder to the root of your hard drive, and install Chameleon. 4a. Delete the dsdt.aml file within /Extra, because for our motherboard's sakes, we don't need it. 4b. Open up the com.apple.Boot.plist inside /Extra and edit the <string> under Kernel Flags with the same parameters you used to boot up, minus the "-v" parameter. 4c. OPTIONAL: If you don't want to see the Chameleon boot screen, you can add the following code to boot straight into the Apple logo: <key>Quiet Boot</key> <string>Yes</string> I highly recommend setting a Timeout period, just in case anything bad happens down the road and you need to troubleshoot. 5. Install the legacy_kernel from Phil Tesone's website. 6. Install the IOUSBFamily.kext so you can ditch the CD, and the AppleAzaliaAudio.kext located in /Extra/system for sound. You can do this by copying both to /System/Library/Extensions. Shortly after you do, though, there will be an error message saying that they were not installed correctly, and thus cannot be used. Do not fret, we're about to fix that. Enter the following code into the Terminal: cd /System/Library sudo chmod -R 755 Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel Extensions sudo touch Extensions 7. Now, boot into your Linux LiveCD. Connect to wifi and download this. 8. Once downloaded, write it to your Snow Leopard partition using this: sudo dd if=boot1h of=/dev/sda2 bs=4096 FYI, replace "boot1h" with wherever you saved it. When you've typed "sudo dd if=", you should be able to drag and drop your file into the Terminal. 9. You should now be able to ditch the modCD and boot straight from your hard drive. 10. Install the Ralink Wireless Utility you should have grabbed from the Materials section. Personally, I had it on the data CD that I created when I started the installation process, but since USB should now be functional at this point, you can transfer the utility from either USB or CD. After you have wifi working, update to the latest version of Snow Leopard by grabbing this. Don't restart when it tells you to, because you have to first install this. After the 10.6.8 update, your "About Mac" should show your AMD Athlon II X4 645 as an Intel Core i5 and it should also show your RAM. At this point, your Mac App Store may not be letting you sign in, so here's how to fix it: 1. Create a new location in your network preferences by going to System Preferences > Network. 2. Remove all network interfaces by selecting them and clicking the minus button. 3. Delete /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist 4. Reboot your Hackintosh and add back Ethernet and Ethernet Adapter (en1) to your network preferences. Quicktime Player may also be presenting some troubles whenever you try to start it up. The fix is simple: Open your Applications folder, right click on Quicktime Player, click "Get Info", and enable "Open in 32-bit mode". You can use this fix for other problematic applications that have this option. After following this guide, you should have a relatively functioning Hackintosh with the following limitations: No QE/CI, which would majorly hinder applications like iWork, iLife, and Preview. Flash content like Youtube is also affected. No front I/O panel (Media Expansion Bay) After updating my bootloader to the latest SVN, I've found that the lower 2 USB ports on the media expansion bay now function! Hopefully the Chameleon devs will add support for the rest... No Boot Camp To remedy the QE/CI issue, you'll need to purchase a separate video card. I personally picked the ATI Radeon HD 5450, but you can take your pick after reading through this and watching this video. Like reviewerashley said, make sure you buy a low profile card when shopping for one. Anything other than that will not fit in the small space that the PCI-E x16 slot is allocated. Thanks for following my guide, everyone! If you have any problems, or just want to comment, please post all your thoughts in this thread. Thanks to Phil Tesone for the installation guide in part one, and everyone on IRC who made this possible. Check out the guide's website for more comprehensive, and in some cases, more up-to-date information on installing Mac OS X on your Acer PC!
  25. I am new to this forum so be kind Before I begin, these are my specs: AMD Athlon II x4 ASRock N68C-S UCC mobo 8gb DDR3 Hyper X RAM Samsung Spinpoint 1tb HDD Ok so I have successfully installed Leopard on my build using iDeneb but I now want to install Snow Leopard using Hazard. This has worked before (a while ago) but I only had 1 hard drive at the time so I decided to scrap OSX and just use Windows. But now I have 2 hard drives and I want to install OSX again. The problem occurs after I have loaded Hazard with BootCD. When Hazards starts it opens a dark grey screen (no apple logo) and hangs their with the multicoloured mouse wheel loader thing spinning, I have left it for a good 10 minutes but nothing has happened? Suggestions please! Thankyou!
