Steps taken till now, got the errors and progressively removed them by going through the forum topics:
1. Used unlocker 3.0.2 to unlock VMware workstation 15.0.2 (https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/335757-macos-unlocker-v30-for-vmware-workstation/?tab=comments#comment-2638208)
2. Copied the patched EFI unlocker to x64 folder in VMware Workstation directory (https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/336110-macos-efi-unlocker-v10-for-vmware/?tab=comments#comment-2642442)
3. Provided the full path of the patched files in the vm configuration file
4. Got the cpuid mask from here (https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/243274-how-to-install-retail-os-x-106-snow-under-vmware-workstation-7-or-player-3/)
Now my VM boots up without errors but it displays a stop sign after the apple logo
Please let me know how should I proceed as I think this is the last hurdle before successful installation of SL on VMware 15
Is it possible to install an older OS X.5 Leopard or OS X.6 Snow Leopard Hackintosh system on a modern i7 processor PC?
I need to to run either of those systems using an Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core Desktop Processor on a Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H motherboard.
I saw this post where someone said “Clover 32Bit should boot Leopard as well, using Legacy mode. You will need 32bit kexts as well.” https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/331457-bootloader-for-leopard/ .. Would that be valid advice for me to follow up on for my configuration? I see that Clover 32 bit is no longer in development.. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/317521-good-bye-clover-32/
Soo i was trying install mac at 4 days ago and finnaly today i can. I installed the Leopard and all works fin except the keyboard and ps2 mouse. And then i try a lot to put a .kext with transmac on windows xp cause im dual booting it.When i try to use Transmac i have the error"This drive is read only".
Who i fix this?! This is my first question!
The second i think is more hard. I have a Amilo Pro V3505 with 2gb ram and Intel GMA 945, a Intel Pentium T2130 idk the motherboard i aleardy try find the name but i couldnt with a Atheros ar5007eg wirless adapter.
So i instal iAtkos S3 v2 but when i was booting(after installing) it he boots and starts make the sound of the animation video of snow leopard but THE SCREEN WAS GREY WITHOUT THE APPLE LOGO AND WITHOUT THE MOUSE JUST A GREY SCREEM.
Well i try much flags but when i try GraphicsEnabler=No while the booting appears i recuve the message "you need to restart the computer" and i restart and gives again the same error.
I think is some missing kext graphical but i cant add/remove kexts cause transmac give error!
Thanks in advanced!
I have a pretty old laptop that I'd like to get Snow Leopard running on. At first, I tried booting Nawcom's ModUSB with a retail DVD image, but I would always get kernel panic, no matter what I tried (I couldn't even get to the installer).
So I decided to try a distro, after trying many different things with ModUSB. I decided to use Hazard's 10.6.1-10.6.2 SSE2/SSE3 Intel/AMD distro. I was shocked when it booted to the installer with no issues! I formatted the HD as Mac OS Extended (Journaled), GPT. I then installed Snow Leopard. After a while, the installation succeeded, and I was happy. It went ahead with the restart necessary for the installation, and... kernel panic. The same kernel panic I got before when trying ModUSB. I was really disappointed.
I've tried many things:
boot flags, such as: acpi=off arch=i386 GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0 -f -s -x (and more, including verbose mode of course)
booting the installer again after successful installation, and then going to System/Library/Extensions on the HD in terminal, then: "chmod 755 *.*" as well as "kextcache -a i386 -m *.*"
reinstalling with no customize options selected apart from the boot loader (first installation, things such as the legacy kernel and specific kexts were specified)
and probably some other things that I can't remember right now
The thing is, if the installer can load with no issues, then Snow Leopard should work fine too, because they're theoretically (don't know for sure) using the same components (kernel, kexts, etc.). If I boot the installer in verbose mode, it gets right past the part where it kernel panics after installation just fine. This makes me think that something is configured differently after it is installed - something that the installer does not have - which is causing the kernel panic and preventing the boot.
Here are the specs of the laptop I'm trying to install this on:
I know that this probably isn't the most compatible with SL, and I know the chipset/graphics are unsupported. However, I think I will be able to get it to work eventually, I just need some input on what might be going on. Looking at the kernel panic, it points toward AppleACPIPlatform.kext, but I don't know what's exactly wrong with it that is causing the kernel panic.
Please take a look at the verbose mode image I have attached. I appreciate any and all help I receive!
I am trying to install the snow leopard from the distro to amd iatkos it does well boot but when I go to the disk utility does not detect the disk do not know why someone can help me to solve this? There is a photo of the kexts I have in the extra folder
