HP M812n

Hello Everyone! -_-

 

Can somebody help me to install Deneb_v1.1_10.5.4_ISO in my HP 8120n?

  • Motherboard=P5BW-LA, 965/ICH8-R
  • CPU=Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz
  • RAM=3GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM
  • Graphics=512B ATI Radeon 2600XT
  • 2x320GB SATA Hdd's.
  • Primary NIC: Onboard

I saw in this site http://www.osx86library.com/hardware/brows...p=2&hwCa=15http://www.osx86library.com/hardware/brows...p=2&hwCa=15 that is possible to install Leo in this desktop.

 

Which Kernel should i use? Should I make some changes in BIOS? Which Patch?

 

In case that I can install i would like to have a dual boot with VISTA, I'm thinking to use Leo in one HD and Vista on another. In this case, how to do the dual boot? Can I use a software like XOSL or similar to do the job?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

 

My best regards,

ROFL! I made that entry, and I'm posting from my osx86 install on that same machine right now.

 

No BIOS patches needed, make sure Execute Disable-Bit and Virtualization technology are enabled in the BIOS. Both partition types (GUID and MBR) work for it, you can use vanilla kernel with it, and it's even boot-132 compatible for maximum vanilla-ness. My preferred iso for it is Kalyway 10.5.2, installs with no problems, I swapped out the onboard graphics (7350LE 128MB, which works with nvinstaller .31) with an 8500GT, which works much better.

 

For dual-booting you can just install Vista first with the MBR partition table, then install osx86 after, but you have to do an HFS+ partition error fix with fdisk, either that, or boot to the install using the dvd as a bootloader (at f8 type rd=disk0s2) and then install chameleon.

 

Any further questions don't hesitate to ask. Make sure the hard drive is set in the BIOS as either SATA/RAID for Kalyway 10.5.2, and then change to AHCI *AFTER* the 10.5.3 update and beyond. I'm also on the moofspeak irc network a lot if you need me, connection details in my sig, or on the main forum page.

Hi realityiswhere,

 

I have some questions about your advices (sorry I'm a noob in osx86 stuff):

  • How do i create a MBR or GUI partition?
  • What is boot-132 compatible? And how to do it?
  • Your wireless connection is working?
  • Audio is working?

Thanks for your help!

 

By the way I'm from Canada too, but from the french side lol

1. If you already have Windows installed, it is already in MBR partition table, leave it in MBR, if you make it GUID it will erase windows. However, you have to change the partition from within the "erase" tab of the partition in the disc utility on the OS X dvd, under the menu.

2. Don't worry about boot-132 until you get more experienced.

3. Wireless does not work, I haven't been able to get it to work at all under OS X.

4. Yes, audio works.

Hello there. I was able to install iAtkos 5i on my m8120 and had just about everything working except wifi and on-board Ethernet. Reading through the forums, I see that there might be a solution to the ethernet problem. Will have to run a test when I get home. I've been using a USB network adapter, so I had a workaround.

 

Recently, I tried to upgrade from 10.5.5 to 10.5.6. Sleep no longer works. More accurately, the machine won't wake up. I tried replacing some IOUSB kexts with 10.5.5 versions. The monitor recovered from sleep, but no USB.

 

Has anyone had success updating to 10.5.6 from iAtkos 5i or using boot132 and retail Leopard or some other method? If so, does sleep work reliably?

 

Thanks.

for USB, kernel version (uname -a in a terminal) and system.kext versions have to match.

 

Updating works fine (you just need to use a Disabler.kext), boot-132 works fine as well, sleep doesn't work in 10.5.6 (even with dsdt patching), and don't even bother trying to get wifi working.

Wow! Thanks for the quick reply. Sounds like I should stay at 10.5.5 if I want sleep to work. Hopefully there will be sleep solution for 10.5.6 in the future. Is there a compelling reason to update to 10.5.6 anyway? I like having the latest and greatest but don't want to fix something that isn't broken.

 

Thanks for the link to the ethernet fix. I will give it a try when I an back at my machine.
