  2. Hi there. Soo i was trying install mac at 4 days ago and finnaly today i can. I installed the Leopard and all works fin except the keyboard and ps2 mouse. And then i try a lot to put a .kext with transmac on windows xp cause im dual booting it.When i try to use Transmac i have the error"This drive is read only". Who i fix this?! This is my first question! The second i think is more hard. I have a Amilo Pro V3505 with 2gb ram and Intel GMA 945, a Intel Pentium T2130 idk the motherboard i aleardy try find the name but i couldnt with a Atheros ar5007eg wirless adapter. So i instal iAtkos S3 v2 but when i was booting(after installing) it he boots and starts make the sound of the animation video of snow leopard but THE SCREEN WAS GREY WITHOUT THE APPLE LOGO AND WITHOUT THE MOUSE JUST A GREY SCREEM. Well i try much flags but when i try GraphicsEnabler=No while the booting appears i recuve the message "you need to restart the computer" and i restart and gives again the same error. I think is some missing kext graphical but i cant add/remove kexts cause transmac give error! Thanks in advanced!
  3. Hello everyone, this is my first post here. I have a pretty old laptop that I'd like to get Snow Leopard running on. At first, I tried booting Nawcom's ModUSB with a retail DVD image, but I would always get kernel panic, no matter what I tried (I couldn't even get to the installer). So I decided to try a distro, after trying many different things with ModUSB. I decided to use Hazard's 10.6.1-10.6.2 SSE2/SSE3 Intel/AMD distro. I was shocked when it booted to the installer with no issues! I formatted the HD as Mac OS Extended (Journaled), GPT. I then installed Snow Leopard. After a while, the installation succeeded, and I was happy. It went ahead with the restart necessary for the installation, and... kernel panic. The same kernel panic I got before when trying ModUSB. I was really disappointed. I've tried many things: boot flags, such as: acpi=off arch=i386 GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0 -f -s -x (and more, including verbose mode of course) booting the installer again after successful installation, and then going to System/Library/Extensions on the HD in terminal, then: "chmod 755 *.*" as well as "kextcache -a i386 -m *.*" reinstalling with no customize options selected apart from the boot loader (first installation, things such as the legacy kernel and specific kexts were specified) and probably some other things that I can't remember right now The thing is, if the installer can load with no issues, then Snow Leopard should work fine too, because they're theoretically (don't know for sure) using the same components (kernel, kexts, etc.). If I boot the installer in verbose mode, it gets right past the part where it kernel panics after installation just fine. This makes me think that something is configured differently after it is installed - something that the installer does not have - which is causing the kernel panic and preventing the boot. Here are the specs of the laptop I'm trying to install this on: Intel Pentium M 753 ULV @ 1.2GHz 1GB RAM 855GME Graphics/Chipset I know that this probably isn't the most compatible with SL, and I know the chipset/graphics are unsupported. However, I think I will be able to get it to work eventually, I just need some input on what might be going on. Looking at the kernel panic, it points toward AppleACPIPlatform.kext, but I don't know what's exactly wrong with it that is causing the kernel panic. Please take a look at the verbose mode image I have attached. I appreciate any and all help I receive!
  4. Howdy all. bluetooth issues here. my bluetooth is built into my t60 and it has a bcm2045 chipset. It is detected as a usb device under USB DEVICE TREE. done some researching and there are some fixes that make it perform better when its detected but nothing about this specific problem. bluetooth works fine before computer is put to sleep. Before sleeping bluetooth light on computer is lit. When put to sleep bluetooth light on the thinkpad is turned off. Upon waking from sleep the bluetooth icon has a line through it and my built in bluetooth bcm2045 is no longer detected in the bluetooth section of system profiler. BT light never comes back on. It also disappears from the USB device tree in system profiler. When i reboot bt shows up and works fine again. laptop is a t60 with custom dsdt from silencer. I assume its just some dsdt fix but im not sure where to start. any experts available? should just be a quick fix in dsdt. heres my dsdt. Love and light EDIT: found another USB dongle that plugs in and it survives the sleep cycles just fine. im stumped dsdt.rtf
  5. Ok I think I got it! Device informations: Realtek ALC1200 00:1b.0 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller [8086:3a3e] Device ID: 0x3a3e8086 You can find ALC1200 on: Asus P5Q tested ok Asus P5Q3 tested ok Asus P5Q-EM tested ok Asus P5Q-VM tested ok Asus P5QL-EM tested ok Asus P5Q-Pro tested ok Asus P5Q-SE tested ok Asus P5Q-SE/R tested ok Asus P5E3 PRO tested ok Asus P5Q-C tested ok Asus P6T tested ok Asus P6T-SE tested ok Asus P5QL-PRO tested ok Asus P6T deluxe it's an AD2000b!

A: You must reinstall those hacked kexts, because the update overwrite the vanilla hacked applehda kexts. Should even happens that the update doesn't overwrite the old applehda kext driver, so in this case, you don't need to reinstall. Q: I'm experiencing pop sound, how can I solve this? A: Try setting your hack as MacPro3,1 in /Extra/smbios.plist =========== ==================== MAVERICKS 10.9 AND MOUNTAIN LION 10.8 ========================== Only DSDT method. ALC1200_lm_108.zip - edit DSDT pointing to 12 (hex 0C) layout ID, as on the HDEF text file attached - install AppleHDA.kext attached - cache rebuild - reboot this is from my dsdt (Asus P5Q with E8400 and 4GB ram) so you can understand where you have to put the hdef code. DSDTEditor is recommended. Edit your DSDT, don't use mine. dsdt.zip these are the xmls needed for our ALC1200 to work right layout_and_platforms.zip ==================== MAVERICKS 10.9 AND MOUNTAIN LION 10.8 ========================== ==================== SNOW LEOPARD and LION ========================== **First method**: with DSDT Injection, patched AppleHDA, and NO HDAenabler attached. AppleHDA_ALC1200_HDEF.zipremove AppleHDA.kext from /S/L/E and install this after dsdt edit. HDEF code is attached in the zip pack, put the HDEF code in: - SCOPE _SB -- Device PCI0 --- Device HDEF **Second method**: easier, no quality differences: with HDAEnabler and no DSDT editing. [latest] ==> ALC1200 for Lion 10.7 and Snow Leopard 10.6.3, 10.6.4, 10.6.5 ALC1200_1063.zip================================================== older 10.6x versions: - SL 10.6.2 modded kexts ALC1200_1062.zip - Snow Leopard 10.6.0 and above ALC1200 audio kext: ALC1200_106.zip ==========OLD STUFF========== ALC1200 driver for 10.5.x : I think latest ALC1200_SLIM version could be considered "final", I'm running 10.5.6 and I'm working on this OSx version. For previous OSx version you can try installing only the ALC1200fix and the HDAEnabler from ALC1200_1056LINEIN version and see if that works. The other ALC1200 kext versions out on the forum are old and I think can even cause some shutdown/reboot issue. This driver doesn't work with ALCinjector. - SPDIF coaxial Digital Out working - Headphone working - Line in is working only in the slim and line-in version, read notes down this post ----------- Works on 10.5.7, just download and reinstall the driver. Choose driver version, I think best choice is the slim version: 1. Update (4th june 2009) slim version from 10.5.7 applehda with: green line out, headphones, rear mic, line in and spdif out I removed not needed verbs for multiple channel output (I don't need them) ALC1200_1057_SLIM.zip 4th june 2009 10.5.7 version [latest] ---- ALC1200_SLIM.zip[/b] 19th april 2009 10.5.6 version (discontinued) 2. Normal version with no line-in, you can switch between front/rear mic without any trouble ALC1200_1056.zip 3. This is a beta version with all three input working, line-in, front mic and rear mic, front-mic has some trouble This version works but if you switch between inputs, front mic stops working (only for that session obviously, if you reboot it works). This happens because ALC1200 has 1 digital mixer node for 2 channel (linein and front mic) instead of one, so if you come back from line-in input, to front mic, front mic stops working. At the moment I would think this driver can't manage thing like this, so I don't know if we could have a better driver than this. Anyway I wanted a working line in and if you select this and use it, that works, so if you need line-in you should use this version. Update (14th april 2009) with RCA spdif in "about this mac" Update (17th april 2009) removed ALC1200fix.kext from the pack If you're updating your driver, in order to install this, remove ALC1200fix.kext from your extension folder, then install this with kexthelper. Now in sound preference there's no (useless) "Internal speaker" "Built in" for input and output. ================================================== Thanks the whole forum, especially this thread, TheKing and Taruga Removed verbs they're too large. This is how looks like About this mac: You're lucky, enjoy it!!
  6. I've been trying for hours to get Snow Leopard to boot using Clover (v4035). I use to be able to boot this partition with Chameleon so I now it's a working install. Can anyone help me with what settings I need to use in config? I have attached what I currently use for El Capitan. Machine details are in my signature. Any help would be appreciated. config.plist.zip
  7. I am trying to install the snow leopard from the distro to amd iatkos it does well boot but when I go to the disk utility does not detect the disk do not know why someone can help me to solve this? There is a photo of the kexts I have in the extra folder
  8. Hello. I've never done VirtualBox for hackintosh, and am having trouble getting my VM to run. I been working on it for day, and still can't get it running. I enabled Virtualization tech in my bios, and still nothing. This time, I tired the guide here: http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/02/snow-leopard-virtualbox.html I followed every step, and when I get to the Step 4, I always get this error on VBox: cdboot: init cdboot: file size: 00042300 cdboot: reading sectors: 00000085 cdboot: loading....................... cdboot: done cdboot: init cdboot: BIOS disk read error at sector: 00000011 cdboot: error_ I'm not sure what to do anymore, because each guide I've done ended up like this. Could it be because I put the .vdi on an external harddrive while VBox is on my internal? Could it be hardware related? I don't have very much room on my main harddrive, but I'll make room if that's the case! This is my first time trying this. Also, if it helps, I'm running Windows 10 with an i7 4710HQ, Nvidia 860m, and 8 gb RAM. It's a Lenovo y50 from 2014.
  9. Hello, I'm trying to get a VM of OSX 10.6 on my PC. I'm running Windows 10 with an i7 4710HQ and Nvidia 860m. I've been trying this method here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/290949-how-to-install-os-x-10x-snow-leopard-lion-mountain-lion-mavericks-and-yosemite-in-vmware-workstation-1011-or-player-67/ along with Unlocker 2: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/339-unlocker/ Now, this is the farthest I've made it trying to do this. I'm able to see an Apple Logo, and then it gives me an error saying that the guest OS is not Mac OSX Server 10.6. So I changed my Vmware to Workstation 11, and tried it with again and it gave the same error each time. I don't have the other OS versions, and I'm not sure whether I'm still doing something wrong, or whether it's a win 10 issue? I'm really new to this, and have never done OSX on a VM before. I also forgot to mention, but I bought my own Snow leopards CD, and I'm still trying to figure out that guide.

    iATKOS S3 V2 on A-bit AG8?

    I know the machine and OS X version is old, but its the machine I have and I want to know if I can install iATKOS S3 V2 on the machine? My specs are: A-Bit AG8 (not to be confused with the A-Bit AG8-V) 2 GB DDR400 RAM (An additional 2GB of DDR400 RAM will be installed soon) Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz (OC to 3.52GHz) EVGA GTX 260 TP-Link TL-WDN4800 SoundBlaster SB0507 WDC Blue 1TB (A soon to be installed IDE DVD player) (A soon to be installed USB 3.0 PCIe card) System has Windows 8.1 installed and I plan on dual booting (maybe triple boot with linux) Currently my problem is that I am having issues getting the installer to start, I have used the following flags: -v /arch=i386 -v /arch=i386 /legacy -v /arch=i386 /legacy /graphicsenabler=yes all have the same result: a reboot just before the apple logo would normally show up, after all the kexts are loaded by chameleon, the system will just reboot. What do I need to do?
  11. This post has been moved to the wiki (http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Patched_Kernels) and will no longer be updated. (February 1, 2013) This is a database of currently working kernels for AMD processors. I'll add all the kernels I know of, but if I miss any, please do let me know! Credit goes to me for having the idea and to MadMungo for reading my mind and posting it. OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Bulldozer users: Sinetek's test 1 kernel has been reported to work. Best working for all (The following CPUs are known to work: Athlon II x2 and x4, Phenom II x4 and x6, Pentium D.) except Bulldozer at the moment: AnV 10.8.2 amd_kernel. There are also some 10.8.2 kernels compiled by Sinetek, most notably mach_sse42_only. Mach_sse42_only requires the boot flag -nossse3bit and AnV's patched corecrypto.kext. Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Bronzovka has just compiled a 32 OR 64-bit kernel space 64-bit user land 10.7.4 kernel. With the arch=i386 flag, GPUs should be working with no graphics issues! This kernel seems to have the instant reboot problem too on Bulldozer/Piledriver. The only working 64-bit kernel for Lion at the moment is the 10.7.4 legacy_kernel compiled by IiTz ShAnE. This kernel requires the -nossse3bit bootflag. R:A:W:X86's 10.7.4 kernel works, as far as I know, about the same as theconnactic's kernel below. Theconnactic has compiled a 10.7.5 kernel that boots in 32-bit mode on CPUs that don't support SSSE3 and in 64-bit mode on those that do--Bulldozer/Piledriver/Fusion included! If you're booting in 32-bit mode, you must, after backing up the original, replace /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/ with this one from DP2. The bootflag arch=i386 also must be used for 32-bit mode. Lastly, so apps won't refuse to open after a few minutes (thanks to xpchelper being crashy), follow these instructions. (originally written by ghostec of InfiniteMac and mercilessly modified my me) BronzovkAnVoodoo is another 32-bit only AMD 10.7.4 Lion kernel... Needs the xpchelper fix. (above) Some more of Bronzovka's kernels (v4, v5, and two others, all 10.7.3), and another (v6, 10.7.4)... These all need the xpchelper fix. (above) Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard AnV's 10.6.8 legacy kernel with SSE3 emulator. Runs in 32-bit kernel space and 64-bit user land. This is the kernel to use unless you want to try the experimental full 64-bit kernel below compiled by Sinetek. Nawcom's legacy 10.6.8 kernel runs in 32-bit kernel space and 64-bit user land as AnV's kernel above. I'm not sure how it differs from AnV's kernel, but I've used both without issues. Full 64-bit 10.6.8 kernel with SSSE3 emulator for 64-bit kernel space on non-ssse3 CPUs. Compiled by Sinetek. A bunch of Nawcom's older kernels can be found here. 10.6.0 kernel compiled by modbin. I know nothing about this kernel except that it's recommended for AMD and Pentium 4, but there it is if you want to try it. Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard Qoopz 10.5.8 AMD kernel with SSE3 emulator. Voodoo 10.5.5 AMD kernel with SSE3 emulator. Voodoo kernels. The AMD 10.5.5 kernel has an SSE3 emulator, but I don't know about the Intel 10.5.7 one. Mac OS X 10.4 Hi Folks I have been found an old baby, a legacy kernel for Tiger 10.4.11, by Andy Vandijk. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/139297-anv-mac-os-x-10411-xnu-7922520-kernel-tiger/page-2 General information about Tiger Jas 10.4.8 to 10.4.11 AMD: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/87000-jas-amd-1048-to-10411/ Information on 10.4.11 on AMD http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/71972-10411-on-amd/ http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/89760-tubgirl-10410-amd-test-1/ Useful Files Posted to the Board http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/36886-good-info-useful-files-posted-to-the-board/?hl=kext+post Maybe someone would like to install Tiger.
  12. I have installed 10.6 on my AMD machine, but this panic keeps appearing, and I've searched high and low for awnsers, ANY help is appreciated -Sam (attached is a picture of the panic screen)
  13. Hello everyone. I'm taking on the daunting task of writing a PPC kernel for Snow Leopard. I would like to write one for Mavericks in the future, but I think that in terms of compatibility, SL is a better starting point. I hope to support 32 bit and 64 bit PPC CPUs, but I'll probably start with 32 bit. I'm not making any guarentees that this will run without bugs or that I will finish it, but if I manage to get a PPC mac booting in 10.6.x even only in single user mode, I'll release it somewhere to have help. I'm aware that I also need to write kexts for this as well. I decided to post here because Tonymacx86 would give me the boot for talking about PPC and 10.5. Anyway, I'll keep this thread updated if I get anywhere. For those curious as to where I'm starting, here are my very basic starting plans: 1. Buy a chargers for the millions of iBook's I have lying around or buy a Powermac G5 2. Explore the 10.5.8 kernel 3. Explore the 10.5.8 kexts 4. Copy compatible kexts from 10.5 to 10.6 5. See what happens 6. Explore issues and fix kernel 7. Test a ton of stuff 8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 millions of times Anyway, those are my plans. BTW, I'm no n00b at this type of stuff. I'm very farmiliar with hackintoshing and writing kexts and the like. That's not to say this is gonna be easy. School is busy, so IDK when Imma work on this. I already have machines running Mavericks, and have the install discs for 10.5. I also have an Intel MBP capable of running 10.5 (IDK why I'd really need it for this) and an f load of iBooks. I'll probably find a PowerMac G5 for really cheap or for free. Wish me luck! Cheers, JellyT0ast (Yeah ignore my real U/N lol) P.S.: If you are interested in helping, let me know EDIT: I'm aware I might need to use an alternate bootloader other than the built in EFI. If I need to, I'll use either Chameleon or Clover.
  14. i had a snow leopard installation ( it was a very stable install ) a while ago and then i reformatted it due to some reason . i would like to know how to create a bootable snow leopard installer pendrive as my optic disk drive is dead .

My PC is fully compatible with snow leopard CPU: core 2 duo e4600 @ 2.4 GHZ RAM: 2GB @ DDR2 CHIPSET : Intel 945
  15. This guide was intended for my own personal use in my efforts to build my first Hackintosh which I've had over the years and as of recently I've decided to publicize it to give back to the community. These methods have proven to work for me. I take no credit for the creation of any files or links that have been provided necessary to install the OS's. This thread is a walkthrough instructing how I was capable of installing Snow Leopard and Windows (dual booting system) on both the EVGA X58 4-Way SLI and X58 FTW3. These are fully detailed instructions to make it easier for newbs. PLEASE DO NOT PM ME FOR HELP OR ASK ME WHERE TO FIND OS ISO's (Google is your friend). REPLY TO THIS GUIDE BELOW. THANKS • WHAT YOU WILL NEED: 1. A Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD 2. A WINDOWS INSTALL DVD (Windows 7+ recommended) 3. A computer running an Intel Processor with 2 hard drives (i7 recommended) 4. A supported graphics card (NVIDIA, Fermi GPU recommended for installation; I'm using a GTX 480) 5. A compatible DVD Burner 6. Boot CD’s a. Empire EFI boot CD / Hackboot v6.2 CD 7. Chameleon 2.0 RC5 r1093 and up 8. (1) 8GB+ USB stick (2x 8GB sticks recommended) 9. Property List Editor (Plist Pro recommended, optional) • BEFORE YOU BEGIN: 1. If you have greater than 4GB of RAM, remove the extra RAM for a maximum of 4GB. You can put back any extra RAM in after the installation process. 2. Use only 1 graphics card in the graphics PCIe slot with 1 monitor plugged in. a. Remove any PCI cards besides graphics – they may not be Mac compatible. 3. Remove any hard drives besides the blank drives being used for OS X and Windows. a. It's best to use 2 empty hard drives – you will have to partition and format the drives. b. Always back up any of your important data. 4. Use USB 2.0 ports. Remove any USB peripherals besides keyboard and mouse. You can use front panel USB ports for mouse only. 5. If using EVGA X58 4-Way SLI or X58 FTW3, use the 0 or 1 black SATA ports - not the red SATA ports. For the purposes of this tutorial, OS X will be installed on hard disk 0 and Win 7 will be installed on hard disk 1 as shown in the photo below. 6. Update your system with the latest BIOS. • STEP 1: BIOS SETTINGS 1. Set AHCI mode and Boot Priority to first boot CD-ROM in the BIOS, the most important step many people overlook. Ensure your settings match these in your X58 BIOS: a. Set First Boot Priority to CD/DVD b. Change LEGACY Mode Support→ Enabled; SATA Mode from IDE → AHCI; JMB362 SATA Controller→ Enabled; JMB363 SATA/PATA Controller→ Enabled; JMB363 Mode→ AHCI; JMB362 Mode→ AHCI c. Change ACPI Suspend→ S3 (STR); Run VGA Bios if S3 Resume→ No; Soft-Off by PWR BTTN→ Instant-Off; Wake-Up by PCI card→ Disabled; USB KB Wakeup from S3→ Enabled; HPET Mode→ 64-bit mode; PWRON After PWR-Fail→ Off; d. Ethernet: Only enable the one you use; no reason to enable the 2nd one and risk conflicts. For X58 4-Way, Port #1 is the top Ethernet port on the back of your motherboard. For X58 FTW3, disable "LAN1" on and set "LAN2" to "Auto";Integrated Sound→ Disabled (Optional if using a PCI(e) sound card). 2. SPEEDSTEP; ENABLE HARDWARE VIRTUALIZATION (OPTIONAL): a. On main menu of BIOS, go to Frequency/Voltage Control, enter into CPU Feature, Change Intel Speedstep→ Enabled, and set the CxE Function→ C1E. (Turbo Performance → Disabled, OPTIONAL) b. On the fifth option down, change Virtualization Technology→ Enabled. This allows you to run virtualization environments such as Parallels and VMWare. • STEP 2: PREPARING YOUR DISKS 1. Boot Win7 64-BIT INSTALL DVD; press any key when prompted to boot from DVD. 2. Enter CMD prompt by pressing SHIFT+F10 or open Command Prompt thru "Use Recovery Tools" under the "Repair your computer" option a. Type the following: diskpart list disk select disk 1 (your OS X hard disk) clean convert GPT create partition EFI size=200 create partition primary size=(size in MB for OS X) → (mine was 167000 MB, of a 180 GB HD) list partition (a * should appear on the partition where the root OS X will be installed) (at this point you can type "extend" to fill the rest of the Partition 1 with any space left over from building the partitions) format fs=ntfs quick exit reopen Command Prompt diskpart list disk select disk 0 (your WIN7 hard drive) clean convert mbr create partition primary size=(size in MB for WIN7) → (mine was 558000, of a 600 GB HD) list partition (a * should appear on the Partition 1) (at this point you can type "extend" to fill the rest of the Partition 1 with any space left over from building partitions) active format fs=ntfs quick exit exit • STEP 3: Mac OS X Installation 1. Use the Empire EFI 1.08 or Hackboot v6.2 and place in disc drive and restart computer. 2. At the boot menu screen, eject boot CD. 3. Insert your Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD and wait for the DVD to read then hit F5. 4. Highlight the "Mac OS X Install DVD" icon from the boot menu, then type -v (verbose mode) and press Enter to begin the boot process. a. Ignore any error messages you see during boot, they will be resolved later. After 2-4 minutes, the Mac OS X installation screen will appear. 5. Do the following before installing OS X: a. Choose your language and click the (->) b. Click "Continue," (Note: It may take about 3 minutes before allowing you to continue if you don't automatically go to the next screen). c. Enter the Disk Utility and select the hidden "disk0" (in some cases, it maybe labeled "Untitled") and erase it by using Mac OS Journaled File System; name it OSX and close Disk Utility. [i know this step is redundant but it allows you name your OS X disk] d. When the installer asks for an install location, choose the OS X partition. The "WIN7" partition will have a yellow explanation mark because it is NTFS which you can't use. e. Leave the default installation features as-is, do not click Customize at this time; we will customize everything later. 6. Let the install proceed. This will take about 30-40 minutes to complete. After the installation is complete, you will see "Install failed" screen if using Empire EFI 1.08. Don't panic, click the restart button. • STEP 4: Mac OS X Post-Installation 1. As system is rebooting, remove the Mac OS X Install DVD and reinsert the boot CD. 2. At the boot menu screen, highlight the "OSX" disk icon, then type: -v and press Enter. a. Ignore any error messages you see during boot, they will be resolved later. 2-4 minutes later, you'll be prompted to the Mac OS X Welcome screen. b. Select your country then click Continue. (Note: It may take about 3 minutes before allowing you to continue if you don't automatically go to the next screen). c. Select "Do not transfer my information now" then click Continue. d. Leave the Apple ID information blank then click Continue. e. Leave the registration information blank then click Continue. Click Continue once more to confirm registration skip. f. Enter your name, account name, and password/hint and click Continue. 3. Wait a moment for the OS X desktop to load. A couple of dialog boxes should appear, do as follows: a. When prompted to backup any disk with Time Machine, click on the "Don't Use" button. 5. Install Chameleon 2.0 RC5 r1093 onto your Snow Leopard installation drive. This is very straight forward. • STEP 5: COPY BOOT FILES TO ROOT & EDIT COM.APPLE.BOOT.PLIST 1. Unzip the Extra_MacPro5,1 zip file and drag it to the root OS X drive (where you installed Snow Leopard). Only two kext extensions are needed: FakeSMC and NullCPUPowerManagement which are inside the Extra folder. 2. Next create a Boot.plist file located in the EXTRA folder. Open Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist using TextEdit (or Plist Pro) and replace the text with this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>DSDT</key> <string>/Extra/dsdt.aml</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>busratio=20 -x64 boot-uuid= 6X94X8X0-FXXX-3X6X-9058-2786XXXX6X6X</string> REPLACE UUID WITH YOUR OWN UUID. You can locate your UUID by browsing to DISK UTILITY (Applications/Utilities) and right click on the Snow Leopard hard drive and click on INFORMATION. Copy your Universal Unique Identifier and paste it where mine is. <key>Theme</key> <string>Default</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>1</string> </dict> </plist> 3. In order for your DSDT to be recognized, you must add the following line to your Boot.plist in order for Chameleon to locate it on the root OSX drive. <key>DSDT</key> <string>/Extra/DSDT.aml</string> 4. To enable your graphics card, Chameleon 2.0 introduced the GraphicsEnabler=Yes method and is probably the most widely used method right now. Edit your Boot.plist by adding the below text: <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> 5. By default Chameleon doesn't include any GUI theme inside its code to make it lighter. If you want to use a different theme, place it into your /Extra/Themes and then update your Boot.plist by including that theme's name: <key>Theme</key> <string>Default</string> as seen pictured below. Save com.apple.boot.plist. 6. [OPTIONAL] Hiding hard disks on Chameleon bootloader a. To disable Chameleon from displaying certain Windows or Mac hard disk partitions, not just the bootable ones, add the following lines to Boot.plist in the /Extra folder: <key>Hide Partition</key> <string>"name1" "name2"</string> b. Replace "name1" and "name2" with the names of the Windows hard disk partitions that you want to hide (keep the quotation marks). If you haven't named your NTFS hard disks, do so in Windows by right-clicking on a hard drive in Windows Explorer (My Computer) and going to "Properties". e.g. <key>Hide Partition</key> <string"WIN7 APPS" "MY TB"</string> c. Hide Partition is an extremely finicky feature; it also supposedly works with hide drive numbering, e.g. hd(0,1) hd(0,2). This method can be extremely unreliable, so it's recommended using hard disk names instead. • STEP 6: SMBIOS.PLIST EDITING 1. Ensure that SMBios.plist is located in the Extra folder. Now the SMBios.plist needs to match your system profiler information. Open it and edit the UUID so it matches your system's UUID. Also keep in mind the specs listed in this sample SMBios.plist such as memory and CPU are based on my specs so label it with your own accordingly. NOTE: Refer to this resource here. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMUUID</key> <string>6X94X8X0-FXXX-3X6X-9058-2786XXXX6X6X</string> <key>SMbiosvendor</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>MP51.88Z.007F.B03.1010071432</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-F221BEC8</string> <key>SMexternalclock</key> <string>4800</string> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>Mac Pro</string> <key>SMmanufacter</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMmaximalclock</key> <string>3067</string> <key>SMmemmanufacturer</key> <string>Mushkin</string> <key>SMmempart_1</key> <string>999999999999</string> <key>SMmemserial_1</key> <string>123456789</string> <key>SMmemspeed</key> <string>1600</string> <key>SMmemtype</key> <string>DDR3</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>MacPro5,1</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>GXXXXXXXXXX</string> <key>SMsystemversion</key> <string>1.0</string> </dict> </plist> 2. You can also use Champlist (or Chameleon Wizard) to generate new SMBios.plist with a VALID serial. To make a SMBios.plist: a. Run the app and click "SMBios" button. b. Choose a system identifier and check "Serial Generator". c. Select a CPU/Model that closely resembles the identifier you chose first. d. Change the country and click "As..." (Save as) to save the SMBios.plist and place it in Extra. e. To validate the generated serial, visit Powerbook Medic site HERE. NOTE: If you plan to update your current Chameleon version on your bootloader hard disk, take note that starting with Chameleon 2.0 RC5 r1191 it will update your "com.apple.boot.plist" to "org.chameleon.boot.plist". • STEP 7: COMPILING, EDITING, AND SAVING DSDT 1. You need to generate and compile/edit your own DSDT.aml file. Using a DSDT from another computer, in many cases even if the mobo and BIOS version are the same, the amount of memory, number of used memory slots, etc. can cause problems. 2. You can use DSDT Auto-Patcher (by MaLd0n). a. Run the patcher – it uses a feature that extracts the DSDT, applies the patches, fixes known compile errors, compiles and saves the patched dsdt.aml on your desktop. b. Once it is complete, drag the dsdt.aml in the Extra folder in the root OSX drive. My motherboard is labeled "EVGA X58 Classified". 3. Or you can use DSDT Editor v0.7 (by El Coniglio) to compile a saved dsdt file to your desktop. IMO this method is more accurate. NOTE: Always start from an original DSDT; you need to be using the computer with the motherboard you want the DSDT for. Refer to this resource here. a. Open DSDT Editor and on the menu bar click 'File' then 'Extract DSDT'. After a few seconds you will see a lot of strange looking text in the editor. NOTE: Don't use "Extract DSDT" if you booted using a patched dsdt.aml from another PC. If you can't boot without a patched DSDT, use DSDT Editor for Linux/Windows to extract the original DSDT from BIOS. If you update BIOS, you will have to patch DSDT again. b. On the menu bar, press 'Patch' and then 'Open'. A file browser window will open. Navigate to your desktop and select the motherboard specific patch. Click 'Open'. c. A little window will open. Press 'Apply'. Wait a few seconds while it does its thing, once its complete press 'Close'. d. In the process of putting together my DSDT, I applied the following patches: (01) DTGP, (02) (02) EVGA X58 Classified or X58 SLI 132 BL E758 TR, (03) HDEF, (04) ALC889 (for X58SLI) or ALC892 (for X58FTW), (05) UHCI, (06) EHCI, (07) HPET, (08) LAN0, (09) HID/CID, (10) PATCH REMOVE, (11) RTC, (12) SBUS, (13) SHUTDOWN, (14) WAK, (15) Mac devices, (16) AHCI SATA orange icon. NOTE: Adding IRQs patch has caused kernel panics; No need for ICH9 USB sleep patch because X58 Classified Mobo only has UHCI/EHCI USB Controllers; No need for LPC patch because if you run "kextstat" command in Terminal you will find that AppleLPC.kext is loaded… e. On the menu bar, press 'IASL', then 'Compile'. A box will open, inside which there may be some messages. Press 'Fix Errors'. After a second or two, as long as there are 0 errors listed, close the box. f. On the menu bar, press 'IASL', then 'Save AML As'. A box will open. Navigate to the Desktop, and in the 'Save As' bar, type "DSDT.AML" (without the quotation marks). Press 'Save' and drag the dsdt.aml in the Extra folder. NOTE: Using a DSDT generated by DSDT Editor will make it a lot easier to enable sleep mode on your Hackintosh, and it will also fix any bootup problems related to your CPU, and solve all ACPI related issues without kexts like ElliottForceRTC, SleepEnabler, IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector (OrangeIconFix), CMOS, etc... • STEP 8: KEXT INSTALLATION 1. Now we need to install the kext extensions in the Extra/Extensions folder using the latest version of Kext Utility. 2. Open the SL root location and drag Extra/Extensions folder onto the Kext Utility application. Be ready to enter your ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT password. Kext Utility will set the permissions on the folder, backup your cache file and generate a new updated Extensions.mkext of your Extra/Extensions folder. 3. Drag System/Library/Extensions folder onto Kext Utility application. An Extensions.mkext file will be created under System/Library, delete it. OS X 10.6 doesn't store Extensions.mkext in System/Library anymore. NOTE: The manual method to update Snow Leopard's mkext (aka "force rebuild cache", which can be easier) is by doing the following instead: sudo –s sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions a. Open Disk Utility and highlight Snow Leopard disk in the left column. b. Click Repair Disk Permissions (any time you remove or replace kexts from the System folder, new cache files need to be created, as they won't be cached correctly by OS X without having correct permissions). NOTE: If you want to find out which kexts are loaded or activated, type the following into Terminal: mkextunpack -v /Extra/Extensions.mkext 4. Now we must install the TRACKPAD.SYNAPTIC-GESTURE (ApplePS2Controller.kext & AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext PS/2 keyboard and mouse driver) or your PS/2 keyboard/mouse won't work when you reboot the system. Place it in System/Library/Extensions. 5. Repair disk permissions with Kext Utility and delete the Extensions.mkext created. NOTE: Extensions like ApplePS2 drivers do not work correctly in Extra/Extensions. NOTE: At this point your system should be able to boot without the boot CD because all essential files are installed. However, you must use kernel flag GraphicsEnabler=No at the boot menu screen. • STEP 9: Installing Mac OS X 10.6.5 Combo Update 1. Download Mac OS X 10.6.5 Combo Update. 2. Drag a copy of your System/Library/Extensions folder to the desktop and make a backup before the system update. You may need some of the 10.6.0 Extensions later. 3. Mount MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.5.dmg and install MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.5.pkg. 4. Restart. On the boot menu screen, highlight the "OSX" disk, then type: –v and press Enter. NOTE: If you are using more than 4GB of RAM, remove AppleTyMCEDriver.kext from System/Library/Extensions and repair permissions. It causes the following kernel panic: AppleTyMCEDriver::start coreVIDPID = 0xffffffff Number of packages = 1 Number of cpus = 8 memory 5. To manually remove AppleTyMCEDriver.kext: Boot from the boot CD, reinsert OS X Retail DVD and hit F5 after DVD reads, highlight the "Mac OS X Install DVD" icon from the boot menu, then type –v then Enter to begin the boot process. On menu bar click "Utilities" then go to "Terminal" and run the following commands: cd /Volumes ls (you'll see the name of Mac OS X's partition.) cd NAMEOFOSXDISK cd System/Library/Extensions (you are now in the kexts folder.) ls (find the complete name of the kext) rm -rf /Volumes/NAMEOFOSXDISK/System/Library/Extensions/AppleTyMCEDriver.kext Replace NAMEOFOSXDISK for the name of your OS X installation disk. reboot Use boot -f (Ignoring Caches) without boot CD to access the OS X disk. • STEP 10: Restoring Graphics Hardware Acceleration 1. Now it's time to enable full power to the NVIDIA GTX 480 graphic card. Apple's OS X uses Quartz Extreme and Core Image (QE/CI) technologies as foundations in the operating system, which if aren't enabled, leave the user with graphics artifacts, mouse tearing, inability to change resolutions, and bad refresh rates. You may have graphics at boot, but here are 2 ways you can check to see if your card is fully accelerated: a. Open Front Row. If it opens and is functional, QE/CI are enabled. b. Open Dashboard and add a widget. If you see cool ripples, QE/CI are enabled. 2. Download Aquamac Fermi 10.6.5 Fix and install drivers using the Aquamac installer (deselect sound kext in the installation) and restart your system and you should have full resolution. a. Being that the graphics enabler line was generated earlier in the installation and added to the com.apple.boot.plist, your display should be fully functional. • STEP 11: Updating to 10.6.8 1. Performing this Combo Update can cause system crashes and general instability. Download and install Mac OS X 10.6.8 Combo Update. Restarting your system on a X58 will cause a kernel panic and if so: a. We must remove AppleACPIPlatform.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext from S/L/E which causes the computer to crash/freeze [PCI Configuration Begin] error. We also have to remove SleepEnabler.kext (if it's in your system) (NOTE: From here on out, always remove SleepEnabler before updating). b. Download AppleACPIPlatform_IOPCIFamily zip file and save it on a flash drive then plug it into your rig. c. Boot from the boot CD, reinsert OS X Retail DVD and hit F5 after DVD reads, highlight the "Mac OS X Install DVD" icon from the boot menu, then type –v then Enter to begin the boot process. On menu bar click "Utilities" then go to "Terminal" and run the following commands (all commands are case sensitive): cd /Volumes ls (you'll see the name of Mac OS X's partition.) cd NAMEOFOSXDISK cd System/Library/Extensions (you are now in the kexts folder.) ls (find the complete name of the kext) d. Type the following commands to remove IOPCIFamily.kext and AppleACPIPlatform.kext: rm -rf /Volumes/NAMEOFOSXDISK/System/Library/Extensions/NAMEOFTHEKEXT.kext Replace NAMEOFOSXDISK for the name of your OS X installation disk and NAMEOFTHEKEXT for the name of the kext you want remove. e. Install the replacement kext for IOPCIFamily.kext and AppleACPIPlatform.kext (original kexts from version 10.6.7) from the root of the separate USB stick by typing the following: cp -R /Volumes/USBSTICK/IOPCIFamily.kext /Volumes/NAMEOFOSXDISK/System/Library/Extensions cp -R /Volumes/USBSTICK/AppleACPIPlatform.kext /Volumes/NAMEOFOSXDISK/System/Library/Extensions exit Close Terminal and reboot with -f (Ignoring Caches) using boot CD to access the OS X disk. 2. Remove AppleTyMCEDriver.kext from S/L/E 3. You will come to notice your graphic functionality not working again. a. You can simply reinstall Aquamac Fermi 10.6.5 Fix and restart the PC. b. To run Davinci Resolve or Mercury Playback engine, you will need CUDA. These are SEPARATE drivers that you get from NVIDIA, and are IN ADDITION TO the regular drivers needed by the card. Download and install CUDA 4.0.19. NOTE: CUDA is not compatible in 10.6.8; GTX 4XX series cards may be error-prone. d. If upon restart you get a blank screen or "blocky" colored screen (caused by CUDA install), reboot with -x (safe mode) and GraphicsEnabler=No on bootloader menu. Setting it that way you will be able to boot the system but without full resolution working. To recover full resolution, simply reinstall Aquamac Fermi 10.6.5 Fix and restart the PC. • STEP 12: Installing bin patched audio kexts: ALC889 for X58 SLI or ALC892 for X58 FTW3 1. The edited Lion AppleHDA kext available for 10.7.2 is compatible with 10.6.8 systems that have the Realtek ALC889 or ALC892 audio codec. This kext supports most Lion analog and digital audio capabilities beyond standard onboard audio, including HDMI audio (discrete and HD3000 integrated), front panel audio and more. a. For X58 SLI, install the patched AppleHDA.kext in 889Beta_Lion_AppleHDA_v2.1.3-Working.Mic.Input.zip into System/Library/Extensions and repair permissions with Kext Utility and restart machine. b. For X58 FTW3, install the patched AppleHDA.kext in 892Beta_Lion_AppleHDA_v2.1.3-2 zip into System/Library/Extensions and repair permissions with Kext Utility and restart machine. NOTE: Whenever updating applications such as iTunes or installing future OS updates, if you find that audio is not working, reinstall the patched AppleHDA.kext for X58 SLI or patched AppleHDA.kext for X58 FTW3. • STEP 13: Enabling Sleep 1. Download and store SleepEnabler.kext in your E/E folder. It enables manual sleep to initiate. a. Although the system will sleep, the wake-up function in 10.7 causes a CMOS reset error after you restart or shutdown, and in 10.8, it will not wake-up from auto-sleep (standby mode) requiring it to be restarted. b. Place a patched AppleRTC.kext in S/L/E which eliminates CMOS reset issues and enables sleep together with SleepEnabler. c. It is recommended to patch the vanilla AppleRTC.kext found in S/L/E, using an unconditional jump over the rtcWrites() in updateChecksum() to prevent CMOS resets. Apply the following perl script by copying and pasting it into Terminal according to the specified version OS X: For 10.6/7: sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x75\x30\x44\x89\xf8|\xeb\x30\x44\x89\xf8|; s|\x75\x3d\x8b\x75\x08|\xeb\x3d\x8b\x75\x08|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC For 10.8: sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x75\x30\x89\xd8|\xeb\x30\x89\xd8|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC For 10.9: sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x75\x2e\x0f\xb6|\xeb\x2e\x0f\xb6|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC d. Alternatively, you can use pre-patched kexts for 10.7 (found here) and 10.8 (found here). e. Repair permissions for S/L/E and E/E. f. Add the kernel flag darkwake=1 into the Boot.plist ("11","10","0", or "no" won't work). • STEP 14: VANILLA SPEEDSTEP SETUP (OPTIONAL) 1. Refer to Step 1: #2 for Speedstep BIOS configuration. 2. Ensure that a patched version of AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext for 10.8 or 10.9. 3. To fix the auto generation of processor idle sleep/power performance states by applying the following into your Boot.plist: <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>PCIRootUUID</key> <string>1</string> Depending on your system, the string could be 0. If your graphics display is not working full resolution then change string from 1 to 0. 4. Install FakeSMC rev. 615 1.0 with HWSensors (SSE4.2 version, x86_64 build) for 10.7/10.8, or the latest version of HWSensors (with FakeSMC v6.0.1364), or FakeSMC 8.1.68, compatible with 10.9 into E/E. Reboot with -v boot flag. Apple's native SpeedStep drivers will initiate after rebooting the system. Run HWmonitor to determine your CPU's temperature. 5. Verify SpeedStep is working: install SMC Monitor. Run the app in idle state, open Terminal and run "yes". The frequency will vary if SpeedStep is working. 6. You can also install iStat Pro 4.92 r2, a highly configurable widget that lets you monitor every aspect of your Mac including CPU, memory, disks, network, battery, temperatures, fans, load & uptime and processes. • STEP 15: GENERATING SSDT: Power Management Optimization (OPTIONAL) 1. Some CPUs have issues with the SSDT (Secondary System Description Table) from the BIOS/UEFI of a motherboard because Apple updated its power management drivers in 10.7.4 which causes them to be stuck at a 16x multiplier, thus limiting them to a maximum clock speed of 1.6 GHz. A properly edited SSDT is needed to override its configuration. a. Download the Pike’s script (modified for i-core processors) and put it on your desktop. Use it only for the PC it is running from. The script reads some information specific about your CPU and its number of cores. b. Open Terminal and type "sudo" then leave a space and drag the script file into the Terminal window then leave a space and type in the Turbo Speed (Maximum Turbo Frequency) for your processor and then press enter. e.g., i7-980 type code: sudo /Users/"YourUsername"/Desktop/ssdtPRGen.sh -TURBO 3600 Type your password when prompted and press Enter. c. A decompiled file called SSDT.aml will generate in a hidden folder "tmp". Type "open /tmp" (no quotations) to reveal its location. Place it into your Extra folder. d. Make sure your Boot.plist has GeneratePStates/GenerateCStates to Yes and just set DropSSDT to Yes (telling the bootloader to use the SSDT you put in "Extra" next time you reboot). Basically this simply seeks to make a generic SSDT that is matched to processor TDP and desired top turbo freq. • STEP 16: Fixing Time Sync issue with OSX/Windows – Registry Fix Method NOTE: Only works for Vista/Windows 7/8/10 1. Press the Win + R keyboard combination to bring up a run box, then type "regedit" followed by Enter. Confirm "yes" once UAC prompt appears. 2. When the registry editor opens, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\TimeZoneInformation 3. Right-click on the empty space right below 'TimeZoneKeyName' and create a new DWORD (32-bit). It will appear as D-WORD On 32-bit versions of Windows 7/Vista. 4. Rename it "RealTimeIsUniversal" (without quotes and it’s case-sensitive). Double-click on the new DWORD and change its value data "0" (zero) to "1" (one) as a hexadecimal. 5. Save everything. Reboot to Mac OS X, set the time properly and now boot back to Windows. You should notice it adjusted the correct time.

    Need DSDT for Lenovo B50-70

    Hi, I am trying the following procedure to install Snow Leopard on my new Lenovo B50-70 from a RHEL version of Linux already installed in one partition ... this is just what I need as described in the following post ... I have got it all going except that the OSx that I have put into a HFS+ partition on the drive0 will not boot up, or not seen as a boot partition by the bios. Any suggestions as to why this might fail ... I am guessing that I need to change the DSDT ... if so does anyone have a Lenovo B50-70 DSTD that you are willing to share ??? Linux install process from here -- http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=1072.0 Also where is the DSDT located in the Osx distribution that I can switch ??? Cheers !

    Snow Leopard ERRO

    Olá pessoal do fórum! Bem, ultimamente eu estou com alguns problemas relacionados ao sistema operacional da Apple o MAC OS X 10.6.3 (sei que não é o mais recente, porem fiz questão de comprar o DVD para a instalação.) e gostaria de pedir humildemente a ajuda da comunidade. Estou disposto a recompensar, que me ajudar a solucionar meu problema (deixarei claro no final do tópico essa questão). Informações : Usando - DVD Snow Leopard (Original) DVD **** 3.3.0 (O comum) Notebook specs - Core i3 m330 Toshiba Satellite A505 S60005 Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Erro - Irei deixar as imagens do resultado da boot flag verbose (-v). OBS : Quando utilizo a boot flag (-v) me aparece : [ PCI CONFIGURATION BEGIN ] (já tentei as boot flags, recomendadas para esse problema - npci=0x2000;npci=0x3000) e não obtenho sucesso, pois continua o erro citado a cima. Já quando inicio sem nenhuma boot flag ou com algumas como cpus=1;GraphicsEnabler=No/Yes, aparece a imagem do logo da Apple, com um fundo cinza (creio que a tela de carregamento) porem não sai dela, de forma alguma. IMAGENS - http://i.imgur.com/sL8v6WE http://i.imgur.com/h7vcASh INFORMAÇÕES SOBRE RECOMPENSA - Bem, estou ansioso em questão a instalar o Hackintosh, e estou disposto a recompensar quem conseguir me ajudar.

  18. HI, this is my first time hackintosh ing my netbook LG x120, and i was stuck with the bios setting, can you guys lend me a hand ?
  19. Hello, I am new to this forum. I decided to install Mac OS X SL on my old computer (I am building a new one for Christmas). Here are my specs(very crappy): Intel Pentium D 945 3.4GHZ - ASRock N73PV-S - 4GB DDR2 RAM - NVidia Geforce 9400GT 1GB - 500GB HDD. So I've downloaded iAtkos S3 V2, burned it on a DVD, Configured evrything to install and installed is. Booted succesfully. But I still have some problems: there is the famous VoodooHDA problem that makes the crakling noise, second that the internet doesn't work at startup, I have to open Network in settings and it recognize a new network interface (same at every startup) and when connected, it would be fast for the fist 5 or so minutes and then slows down util it stops. And last, my Video Card is not recognized (unknown Nvidia card - 1024MB). Please help me, I want it to be fully functional. Any help is appreciated.
  20. Hi, I decided to install Hazard Snow Leopard and the install completed normally. After restart the boot hangs at the Apple logo. I'm a noob when it comes to Hackintosh so I'm not sure why this is happening but I think it has something to do with ACPI When I boot in verbose, the last few lines read. Trying to change a collection in the registry Backtrace 0x502384 0x533a79 0x2f94e6de 0x2f943c73 0x2f947a9e 0x53ba6c 0x539ca1 Kernel Extensions in backtrace (with dependencies): com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform(1.3)@0x2f941000->0x2f981fff dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOACPIFamily(1.3.0)@0x2f8d5000 dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily(2.6.3)@0x2f8f2000 It says this twice in order. (Picture with more info below) I'm not sure what this means, but if anyone does please let me know what it is and how I can fix it. Thanks

  24. So after I installed my Graphics Kext for my HD Radeon 3200 on snow leopard, everything went find but my mouse is this glitchy image shown in attachment. The only way for the cursor to show up is if I enlarge to a very large size and yet it will still revert to its glitchy image when the cursor is not moving. (Also anyone know how to get Realtek High definition Audio working in Snow leopard let me know pls)
  25. Hi, I tried to install iATKOS S3 V2 on my old Acer Extensa 4620 (not 4620z). The installation worked (though I had to remove the battery), and i could not boot into the OS. So i tried -v -x, and it worked, and I could set it up. But the verbose mode showed a lot of errors about something like AppleUSBUHCI.kext not loading or something. The main issue is that my trackpad isnt working, usb mouse not working, wireless mouse also tried, not working. But the keyboard is working.! Any suggestions on how to get back my mouse(stuck on top left of screen)?? (Last resort, I can install it again, if someone tells me what drivers to enable, because the last install worked on some random selection of drivers) Thanks in advance ---------------------------------- SYSTEM SPECS (if required) [ If any more required, ask) ---------------------------------- Model : Acer Extensa 4620 Processer: Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GHz RAM : 3 GB DDR2 Graphics / Display : Mobile intel 965 express chipset family (I also see X3100 somewhere) BIOS : (Dont know for sure) Phoenix v1.00PARTTBL HDD : 160GB ?? In dxdiag, I found PS/2 devices connected :: HID Keyboard Device Standard PS/2 Keyboard PS/2 Compatible Mouse HID Compliant mouse. And also, my mouse and keyboard both worked DURING the install, but not after it ???? Edit: Reinstalling with the proper drivers might be better, if somebody provides me with a list of drivers
