Hi everyone,

 

I've been trying to install 8.5 on 10.5.2 but it's telling me the HostID is invalid. I can go into the about my mac and network preferences and find the mac address. It doesn't fail when I generate the key in the aw.dat.

 

The licensing utility is telling me that the host identifier is invalid.

 

I've read online that the newer versions of OSx86 don't recognize the ethernet devices as default or built-in (something like that) so the licensing utilities don't recognize them.

 

I've installed the IONetworkingFamily.kext fix, but that seems to be for older versions. Is there an updated version for 10.5.2? If I do the old version it destroys my networking.

 

Does anyone else have a solution? Thanks so much!
