Boot-132 Loaders for Retail Vanilla Leopard Install in a Disk Partition

91 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Objective1: Collect all Boot-132 Disc Loaders for Different Motherboards/Chipsets

Objective2: Collect Clones/Images of Boot-132 USB Loaders for Different Motherboards/Chipsets

Objective3: Create Boot-132 Disk Partition Loaders

 

First of all, kudos to all the think tanks who came from this forum and the whole OSx86 Community especially to DFE for this breakthrough Boot-132 Loader. I'm just here to help provide a clean documentation.

 

For Boot-132 Disc Loaders, f41qu3 initiated the documentation via this thread.

 

Now the collections (lifted most from sonotone's thread and that of f41qu3's):

Original/Generic - with the minimum required kexts.

 

Please share other Boot-132.ISOs.

 

For Boot-132 USB Loaders, stickpin shared his knowledge on this thread.

 

Download here the image/clone of my usb-boot-132. To use this with other motherboards, just add/remove any necessary kext(s) in the INITRD.IMG. Just make sure that the last 4 lines of the Info.plist of the kext looks like this:

	<key>OSBundleRequired</key>
 <string>Root</string>
</dict>
</plist>

Or better yet, replace the whole INITRD.IMG w/ the one from your working Boot-132 Disc. The advantage of this is you would no longer be needing a Windows OS. Just restore this to your USB-FlashDisk or to a partition of your HardDisk.

 

Create a Boot-132 Disk Partition Loader

 

This is the product of my experimentation. :( Pre-requisite is a Boot-132 USB Loader.

 

You may want to check

video clip. Successfully dual-booting vanilla Leopard with WinXP. :P

 

By following this guide by llauqsd, you won't be needing to burn Boot-132 to a CD, thus no more disc-swapping.

 

For new retail leopard installs, you can already create a Boot-132 Disk Partition Loader. Here's how it goes:

 

During install, after the Choose Install Language window, run Disk Utility.

 

Make two (2) partitions of your target Hard Disk. First partition is for the Boot-132 so that means you only need about 0.5GB (or even smaller). Then all the rest of the space goes to the second partition for you Mac OS Leopard.

 

Now plug-in your Boot-132 USB Loader. Then restore it to the first partition of your Hard Disk. Make sure you check the "Erase destination" option. After the restore, you can now eject the USB.

 

Then proceed with the Leopard install. After successful installation, open the Terminal application before your computer automatically restarts (mine doesn't automatically restarts). :)

 

Now we have to make the first partition of your Hard Disk, our Boot-132 Disk Partition Loader, active. In Terminal, enter the following:

 

diskutil list (lists your computers Hard Disk(s) and corresponding partition(s): take note of the Hard Disk where you have the partitions for the Boot-132 and your newly installed Leopard)

 

fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 (where 0 is the appropriate disk identifier) (if ever you get the "fdisk: could not open MBR file ..." error, just ignore it)

 

f 1 (where 1 is the correct partition number for your Boot-132)

 

write

 

y

 

exit

 

Now you can reboot and if all goes well, you will get to choose to boot your newly installed Retail Leopard.

 

Good luck and hopefully (as much as possible), comments would be constructive and not destructive. ;)

Thank you for this post!

 

I'm flirting with the idea of putting my Disk Partition Loader onto a small solid state drive. Kind of making my own firmware that way....

thanks for the guide but when i try to use to boot cd a message says no restore file can be found can u help me out

for the boot-132 DISC loaders, they're iso files so u can burn them directly to a cd. it's not these boot-132 disc loaders that u can restore, pls. use the boot-132 USB loader (2nd part of the guide). good luck.

Hi All,

 

Thanks for such a brilliant forum full of help and tutorials to get it working.

 

I am downloading now the bootloader and have a leopard retail....

 

My laptop is a sony vaio vgn nr32l (GMAX3100, 965chipset)

 

I have been trying all methods for ideneb, kalyway but GMAX3100 doesn't works and I am still on 1024X768.

 

Will this leopard retail dvd method help me ? as I have the chipset I have mentioned above..

 

any suggestions will be great

 

kind regards and thanks so much

try the natit.kext that i've attached. extracted it from iatkos 4i. include it inside the initrd.img of your boot-132 loader & make sure u remove other graphics/video kext(s).

 

good luck.

Thanks. Works great. May want to add that you can Ignore the error "fdisk: could not open MBR file ..." during the fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 (where 0 is the appropriate disk identifier) (if you get one)

 

I kept on thinking I was doing something wrong until I just continued on.

I have always this kind of errors with every iso Boot 132 used , anyone's got the same ? ? :thumbsup_anim:

...

not really sure but i guess it's for the reason that you're using the .iso file w/c is your boot-132 DISC. to have boot-132 work in a disk partition, u must use the image/clone of a USB-boot-132.

Thanks in advance.........

i'm not sure but perhaps it was not properly/completely downloaded. it's an 11.8mb (11.77mb) zip file but if u unzip it, it's actually a 256mb-dmg file (exact clone of my 256mb usb flashdisk). if you're still up to it, i'd suggest u redownload the file. or better yet, follow stickpin's guide.

 

good luck.

hopefully u can restore the image/clone of my usb-boot-132. if not, follow stickpin's guide. pre-requisite would be you've already got all the necessary modified kexts u need to run leopard. then revisit post#1 for the rest of the steps. :P

 

good luck.

hi guys,

 

I accidentally wiped my hack so I'm installing again.

 

I created a boot-132 CD, booted off it, partitioned my drive with GUID, installed leopard. booted no probs from CD, updated to 10.5.5 :(

 

now I try to install chameleon and copy the boot file to / and the Extras/Extensions to / as well. Nothing boots, just a blinking cursor. I always have to boot from CD.

 

What gives?!!

 

And what's this bit about using fdisk to mark a partition active on a drive that's GUID?!

 

any help much appreciated.

 

cheers,

Matt

    • i think the "red light" you are referring to is that you have a optical SPDIF output (3.5 mm) combo jack. it most likely will be "red" when audio is active. 
    • Domanda , ma il tuo configplist lo ha settato cosi Gengik????
      Noto molte cose atipiche , tipo aperto con Clover configurator nella sezione ACPI il nome DSDT.aml NON è selezionato , quindi in teoria NON dovrebbe caricare il DSDT che hai in Clover ACPI Patch , se usi SSDT x la CPU NON dovrebbero servirti quelle personalizzazioni sempre in configplist sezione CPU ...
      Secondo me dovresti partire da un configplist pulito , xche sempre secondo me c'è rimasto delle schifezze di qualche tool x installare facile    EDIT
      Scaricando il configplist di jolly NOTO ha impostato +o- come intendevo fare io , sistemando quello  sopra elencato e bammmmm NON avvia , mi forniresti x favore Hack info che trovi nella mia firma ???
      Grazie
    •   Can you share the Clover folder that lets you boot?
    • yes it is. i can boot using a backup from a backup of my clover. i am just trying to fix the VGA /HDMI so i tried using the clover i got from Allan
    •     I mean't to fix that. The new attached EFI only contains new USB patch that will unlikely fix anything unless your hackintosh is installed on a USB drive. If it is installed on your hard drive, as I said, try playing with the patches I attached in the screenshot (i.e. disabling some of them).   Your SATA Mode is AHCI in the BIOS right?
