Hackintosh Netboot Server

Recommended Posts

Not sure where to post this question.

 

I've been trying to re-install Leopard 10.5.6 on an old Powerbook G4. The superdrive is not reading a the backup copy (DVD+DL) of my Leopard installation DVD (original DVD broke in half). So I decided to do a NetInstall instead.

 

Followed various documentation online and manage to get everything working...for the most part.

 

The Netboot server is a Hackintosh Leopard 10.5.7 Client. DHCP/BSDP is configured properly and working. TFTP is also working properly and client is receiving boot rom properly.

 

But once the client reaches the point where it's trying to load the NetInstall.dmg, the server loses connectivity. Can't ping anything from the server, and resolve any DNS. Only way to fix this is to restart the server.

This is about where the server loses connectivity, but nothing in the system.log.

I've pretty much stuck, any ideas would be great.

 

Thanks.

Same issue, only when those start both the client and the server machines basically crash.

    • Unfortunately, removing the THB cable isn't working with the ASRock MB, no TB devices show up at all...   When I had the gigabyte Gaming 7 Pro and was waiting for the connector adapter (GB uses a different header pitch: 2mm vs 2.54mm) no TB devices were seen in macos either...
    • Ok so I was having issues with on-board and HDMI audio using VoodooHDA. No AppleALC due to AMD setup. VoodooHDA was crackling on on-board and couldn't sort and there was no HDMI output. So I bought a Sabarent AU-MMSA USB Audio device. Issue is it's acting just like the on-board audio was. With or without VoodooHDA being injected.   Any suggestions?   https://i.imgur.com/AU5uzEQ.png   https://i.imgur.com/I1tmrhk.png
