Recommended Posts

Would I be able to install either 10.5 or 10.6 on this laptop, specs are below

 

Chipset: AMD

CPU: AMD Athlon II Dual Core

RAM: 4GB DDR3

HDD: 640GB Split into two partitions

Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon 4200 Series up to 1.5GB

 

Is there any way to install this?

Probably, but your video won't be very good. It would have been better if you had identified which laptop you actually own.

Edit: Sorry, I missed the name of your computer in the title. Here is a posting of someone with a similar computer that got it working except for wireless: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=249511

And I tried with Kalyway 10.5.2, iATKOS v7 and JaS Client/Server but none worked, they get stuck at something to do with ACPI. Although I seemed to read alot of people getting success with AMD and Toshiba Satellites on Leo4All, anyone have experience with this Distro?

 

And video isnt a problem, I dont plan on doing any 3D or similar applications, I'm keeping a dual boot of Windows 7 and Mac OS X, OS X will only be used for Music, Internet etc Mainly for my iPod and stuff

 

It hangs at ACPI: System State.. any idea's how to get around this?

Well I heard someone with a C660 series got it working fine with the iATKOS S3 V2 but I don't get any luck with it, I guess it doesnt like Dedicated graphics, or at least just not the Mobility Radeon 4250

More work into it, I think it will in fact work on my laptop.. Just that I have issues with ACPI and my BIOS gives zero options into this, its very limited in what you can control.

 

Can someone give me a link to the ACPI kexts from 10.4.8? been looking for them everywhere and cant find them and the only JaS 10.4.8 torrent I found wouldnt download, so can't extract it myself sadly.

 

Any help would be great, thanks!

I tried looking for the ACPI kexts, but the links I found weren't working. If you get it installed could you post here how you did it because I want to get OSX on my C660. I have tried every distro I could think of too.

    • @MegaCookie   ok, I have no solution for that Trial 7 good for the release?
      Is this codec good enough for you?
    • @onejay09  - thanks again for your help and advice.  I tried various combinations of Info.plist mods (Adding a new Machine entry with my Board ID and GFX0, adding GFX0 to the MacBookPro6,1 Machine entry and adding a Vendor/Device entry to the Board ID and MacBookPro6,1 Machine entries. I thought these might make a difference, but after comparing GPU temps and frequencies to those reported in Windows 7, I'm not seeing any difference.  It appears as though AGPM is natively detecting and handling power management of the NVidia Quadro NVS 140m without any Info.plist mods.   Thanks again.
    • My rig is not booting without the "XCPM bootstrap patch" and "xcpm_program_msrs (c) Pike R. Alpha" patch. Already tested that.  Booting without the TSCAdjustReset.kex is working great and booth sleep and wake is working. The new bios 0603 has an updated microcode and that might be the reason  for the fact that everything is working as it should without the kext.
    • Hello folks,   I may be a privileged user since i own a real mac aka a MBPro 15" mid 2012 runing fine HS... So i wanted to try a personal tip: I hooked my Sandisk 100 GB USB SSD to the real Mac and performed a clean install of High Sierra on it. Then i installed the latest CLOVER on this USB disk and copied the Urashimataro previously provided EFI partition. Then i pluggued this USB to my Xiaomi laptop i5 and tried to boot from this USB SSD. INCREDIBLY BUT TRUE: YES it worked fine. ;-)) Of course i also removed the serials to put mine previously blessed on Sierra...   Happy to share this new tip that lets me boot again my Xiaomi laptop on MacOs, and proud for my own personal solution, since i couldn't retrieve here any workable solution and it drove me crazy and nuts...   Enjoy!
