Just Be Clear! (PC_EFI and Vanilla Kernel)

What is PC_EFI and where do I get it? Is it neccessary? Everyone is talking about it but nobody just comes out and says what it is or where to get it. Do I need a torrent? Is there an http file somewhere? Just a little hint, please!


And what does vanilla kernel mean? How do I use that? The HCL says it'll work for my mother board but I can't figure out how to activate it.


Some important info on stuff I'm using:

Disc: Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD

Motherboard: Intel DG33FB

Processor: Intel Core2Quad


When I boot from the disc everything seems to go fine for a while, until the screen goes black and this text appears (Nothing happens afterward):

I obviously have no idea what that boot volume is, or how to direct Darwin to it, as there is no keyboard response. I've read a bunch of install guides, and all of them assume that I either know what EFI_PC is, or how to get to the vanilla kernel, and they all assume I get past this screen, which I do not. Can anyone offer any help at all?

pc_efi is a modified darwin bootloader, you can find it in the irc chat: irc.osx86.hu channel #leopard


vanilla means its original apple one, unmodified and u need the pc_efi bootloader installed to boot up with vanilla kernel.


and im sure there are dozens of guides how to use/install that ;)
