Ehh thats old too. Just use ###### or myhack

what do you mean by "######"? about myhack, what is it? can i burn it on DVD and make it bootable? also it supports x86?

###### is the forum's filter for i boot. I don't recommend i boot, myhack unfortunately requires an existing OS X installation. If you get a retail Snow Leopard disc, you can try the guide in my signature. :)

just in the case, there's rules on the forum:

Look at the FAQ.

 

In sum, no, it's not illegal unless you pirate the disc. It just breaks the EULA, which is not anything legal. For non-commercial uses there are no issues with running OS X on a PC. :)

what about iatkos?

Dude, iAtkos doesn't work well, just like any other distro. Retail is the way to go.

what version works on hp pavilion dv4000?

No version is tailored for a specific computer. Retail is the way to go.

bump.

That's against the rules.

I don't think you're doing it right.

 

1. Boot the OSx86 ModCD and wait until it shows a funny looking menu.

2. Eject the ModCD and insert the retail DVD.

3. Wait 10 seconds, and press F5

4. Type mach_kernel if you have an Intel Core CPU, don't type anything if you have a different CPU.

5. Press Enter.

Post a pic of the freeze.

 

Try w/out mach_kernel, too.

      Hello everybody,
       
      I have a Packard Bell Easy Note TSHR11-240GE and I need your help to fix my boot and kext problem.
       
      First my system:
      processor: Intel Core i5 (2,4 GHz)
      RAM: 8 GB DDR3
      HD: 1TB
      dislplay: (15,6") 1366 x 768 max. resolution
      graphics: nVidia GeForce GT 540M (2GB) + Intel HD 3000 (nVidia Optimus)*
      Sound: Realtek (not sure!) ALC269
       
      * I just know that Optimus is not working and it will never, whatever I just want any card running, it would be nice when anyone knows how to get the GT 540M working but I think it will not because there is no feature in my BIOS that allows me to just to boot with the nVidia Graphics
       
      My fist problem is booting from HD. I successfully installed Mountain Lion with an usb sick which was created on Lion with ###### (1.5.X) in a Virtual Machine.
      I can completely boot in my installation with the created usb sick, but after installation of some kext plugins etc. and Chimera Boot Loader with ###### it just freeze on the logo screen with the loading wheel. When I try to boot with the boot loader on my hd it just gives me and error screen with boot0 and stops also (I took a picture if its relevant i'll upload it).
       
      I just need help how to boot from my hd and get all relevant Hardware working and may you have some tips for me that worked on you're system =)
       
      sorry for my English, i'am German
       
      regards Loppo22

      Hello everyone
       
      I am trying to install Lion OSX on my new Lenovo G570 Dual-core. I already tried almost every guide i could find and i still have issues with this... i am using 10.7 usb bootable pen built with tonymac ######. i am able to install Lion and boot it if i use verbose and safe mode, other wise it will boot but i get a blank(white) screen and the mouse pointer. this laptop as a Intel HD2000.
       
      by the way when i boot Lion in safemode i get full resolution.
       
      Any help is welcomed.. i am trying to put together a guide for this.
       
      thanks,
