Hello people,

Firstly, sorry for my bad english for it's not my primary language.

 

I've finally gave up trying to make run OS X on my PC, after I think more than an year, just googlin', searching and reading topics, burning almost a hundred DVDs with no success. I even think now that i probably should have bought a new system with verified capable hardware for osx86, but the financial situation it is not the best to me. So asking you for your help is the last alternative before buying a new system compatible of osx86.

 

So my motherboard is ASRock Wolfdale1333-GLAN, graphic card Geforce 9500 GT with 1GB RAM, 4 GB RAM, intel core2 duo E4500@ 2.2 ghz.

 

From what i have understood, my bios version has to be modified to handle Leopard.

 

Booting with -v I am stucked at a message when booting that ends with "MAC Framework successfully initialized using 16384 buffer headers and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers".

 

Please bear with me...

 

Thanx in advance!

Everything will be fine if you are not using AMD CPU =]

can you please be more specific? i'm using intel cpu... what distro should i use? my bios doesn't have the AHCI mode option for hardisks... maybe i'll have to buy another motherboard... i dunno..

 

thats your problem. OS X just won't work unless you have an AHCI enabled BIOS. try upgrading to the latest BIOS ROM but I'm doubtful that would work

ok... i've finally succeded with iaktos v7 which has the option to install on non-ahci bios versions... the only problem is that when i try to install something i get a kernel panic.... some solutions for this? thanx in advance
I assume you mean that when you open a.dmg file you get a kernel panic. You need the seatbelt kext, it's on the iaktos v7 dvd ;)

oh, thanx man! that means that i've skiped it. any idea now how to install it? :D

 

cheers!

 

Run the install from DVD again with the same options (+seatbelt) or download "pacifist".

Pacifists will open the pkg files from the DVD and extract the kext you need.
