So, I successfully booted into my Leopard Hackintosh machine last night after many headaches on the install. I ran the apple software updater, which finished and prompted me to reboot so I did and now the machine will not boot again! It just starts to boot up then the monitor says "no signal" then it auto-reboots, what could cause this!? I was originally booting with the "-v -x" flags and have done the same after the software update and it still won't boot. Thank you in advance for any advice.

I tried -f

 

and that did it for me, I've done a ton of reading and it seems you find little nuggets of wisdoms in the least expected posts, I also did the installs of updates, now when I click on "about this mac" it just goes to a blue screen and then the desktop comesback .

 

all I need to discover now is how to REMOVE all the kext's or drivers related to sound as it does not work

I've tried the "-f" flag as well and it still doesn't work :(

 

 

in that case just re-istall and use it without updates. in reality it's still the most secure system around that any of us can have by just installing ;)

Yea, I was thinking the same thing :thumbsup_anim:

 

hey dude u don't really need to install i had the same problem i installed mac osx several times and every time i tried to install update it juss hung at a black screen. then i tried something else what i did was i inserted the cd i used to install mac with,then i boot from the cd drive like i was doing a fresh install,then when when it loaded i skipped disk utility and went strait to install onto the disk that already had leopard 10.5 on it,then what i did instead of installing the whole thing again all i did was unselected the main base system and re installed all the drives ,kernel,simbios, bootloader and all the other {censored} it only takes about 2 min...then restart when installation is complete and woop teeeee dooo what do u know it worked with all new updates.....right now i am running leopard 10.5.8 and that update came from apple updates. There is no guaranty on this ...but if u want u can try it ....it worked for me...hope it works for you :)

VERY NICE! Works like a charm! The only problem now is that I get an Kernel panic everytime I download something offline, mozilla, adium, etc... I downloaded adium on another computer and thumbdrived it over and it installed fine though.
