Hi,

use this to see if it is possible on your machine System Info, an app to get hardware and kexts info

then if everything is fine, use ###### to install mac.

1. Yes it's possible to boot retail DVDs of Mac OS X on a non-Mac machine. It involves using a boot CD, which loads a special bootloader (Chameleon) and kernel extensions such as FakeSMC.kext to boot on a PC. Chameleon emulates the EFI on real Macs, and FakeSMC emulates the system management controller on real Macs. This allows the system to boot using the vanilla kernel (if the processor is supported).

2. Call Apple and tell them you want a Snow Leopard disc. It's $29.

3. Don't patch the retail DVD.

4. Retail installations of OS X tend to have less issues. Also, you learn everything in the process. When installing with some random distro, you won't know anything that's going on.

5. Buy it from Apple. Or torrent it (make absolute sure it's a retail DVD if you do).

 

For a Snow Leopard retail installation guide, go to HERE. Good luck with your hackintosh!

 

EDIT: Can you put some more info? For example, what Broadcom WiFI card the laptop has, and what graphics card the laptop has.

Don't worry about the cpus=1 unless after you do boot, it freeze and un-freeze over and over every few seconds. For now boot using:

 

-x -f -v GraphicsEnabler=No

have you already partitioned out your drive into smaller ones? It's possible to have multiple operating systems on one drive, there is a limit to the number of logical partitions supported under mbr format, so 5-6 may be too much unless you install windows to guid. there are how-to's available for different options, since normally putting multiple os's on one drive is usually only done on laptops, it's not my area of expertise, I keep them on separate drives. a quick forum and/or google search should get you answers to any questions, if a specific question comes up you can't find an answer for, start a new topic for it.

repair file permissions using Disk Utility. If that doesn't work, SL was the last OSX where it was possible to enable built in ntfs driver that Apple included in the OS, but did not make active. Google "enable osx 10.6 ntfs driver" or similar and will find how to's

First: Yes, you can just type it at the Chameleon boot prompt, same place you would type -v or -f. Later if you want it to be more permanent and not have to type it every time, you would add it to org.chameleon.Boot.plist

 

Second: your core 2 duo CPU is 64bit, the bios may not support 32 bit, but because Chameleon is emulating a Mac's EFI instead of bios, it still makes it possible to use 64bit. Only problem with running 64bit, is Apple does not make 64bit drivers for GMA950/945, they are 32bit only. So for them to load and work, you will need to boot with arch=i386

open terminal and type, or copy and paste:

sudo chown root:wheel /

press enter and it will ask for your password, type it in and hit enter. You won't be able to see anything as you type it, but it is entering your password while you type it, just invisible

 

then type, or copy paste:

diskutil repairPermissions /

hit enter

It sets the proper fine ownership for the root /, then repairs file permissions and ownership on the rest of the drive, except it will not repair any permission issues in your user folder. All those having problems are not Apple software, remove Tuxera and the 5 different 3rd party wifi utilities that are all trying to load, where and how did you try installing all of those?

The problem is your using a distro, in this case hazard, in which it either installs stuff you don't want/need, or you picked stuff for it to install that you don't need. When in the installation options, you should only check off options for things you know you have and know you need. Really you don't need any internet or audio while it's installing OSX for you anyway. You can add them later. But either way, the less stuff you can choose to install the better, and almost always can't/shouldn't pick more than one option from each category. As for you boot sreen, it's just a Chameleon theme, pick anyone you want using Chameleon Wizard and you can change it to always stop and show OS choices and wait for you to pick, or have it automatically boot whichever OS you prefer after a short count down, which you can also set to however many seconds you want.
