OSX installation on LG R400 - some issues


4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if I can install OS X on my LG R400. I have tried to install iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 before and it got stuck on a gray screen while booting, after I installed it.


I am wondering if someone can point me to a specific modified OS X (like Kalyway or Leo4all) which will work on my laptop, and give me some instructions on how to install it. I really want to install it and try it out before I go an buy one after the release of Snow Leopard.


Here are the hardware and software specs:


- ATI X2300 128MB Mobile Graphic Card

- Intel T2130 CPU 1.86GHz Dual Core/Core2Duo

- 2.5GB RAM

- Windows Vista Ultimate

- DirectX 10

- System Model R400-M233C1

- BIOS: Phoenix TrustedCore NB Release SP1 1.0


Thanks alot.

Ideally you should boot in Verbose Mode until you have your machine running the way you want. This can be done by using the -v boot-flag. When you start the computer up you will see the Darwin bootloader screen. This screen will count down and by pressing the requested key will give you a prompt to enter these boot-options. Now instead of getting a gray screen with Apple logo, you will get useful information about the boot process and see at which line it hangs on.


Other useful boot-flags are:

-f which will load your kexts (drivers) individually instead of from the cache file.

-x which will boot you into Safe Mode loading only the basics

Ok, so I tried to do an install on the external HD and I only selected the essential stuff in the customize part and i selected my video driver (ati x2300) and i selected my wifi (atheros ar5007eg). But when I rebooted after the successful install screen it got stuck on the apple loading screen for a very long time and never progressed. Please help. This is all in iDeneb v1.4. I didnt select a kernel either (there were 4 options: sleep, voodoo, speedstep and one other, not vanilla) nor a chipset, didnt know which one to choose.



Thanks :)
