Thank you, FORUM, I got This to work:




First I read everything related to the chipset and used MSI board and then tried various bootloaders. Nothing (aitkos, Kalyway, Empire ...) worked until I used


tonymacx86-P55BootCD-MSI.iso as a bootloader (burned to CD) and a USB install version of my original snow leopard disk.


You need to boot the SL install disk with


cpus=2 busratio=22


Then install SL to a fresh GUID Partition and use the time to download [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url].


Upon Install reboot again from your CD tonymacx86-P55BootCD-MSI.iso


again with cpus=2 busratio=22


Then open [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and ticjk [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] for known processors,

tick KEXT network realtek 1000

tick the ACL888 KEXT and matching enabler


And start [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]


Then remove your CD and boot again from your HD


What works on my HP is


Sound including digital out SP/DIF

Sitecom Bluetooth Dongle

Wired Ethernet

USB 2.0

Firewire (only up to 400 Mbits for now)


Alltogerther this is a very smooth running machine with the totally wrong graphics card: ATIs Radeon HD 5450 which is not supported and only works with one resolution. I tried the Series 5000 Kext but got kernel panics. Because I sick of reinstalling backups to undo bad kexts I'll get myself a new graphics adaptor. Any recommendations?


Otherwise I'm a happy camper.


Thank you all for this great forum and thanks tonymac. Couldn't have done this without you.
