      Solution to create a topic or post.   04/24/2018

      Hello guys. The majority of you are having issues to create a topic or post here. This are a problem with our current theme InsanelyMac.  Now the theme will be the Default IPS. Sorry for any inconvenience.

What after hazard?

Recommended Posts



I've successfully installed Mac OS X 10.6.6i distro by Hazard and now I'd like to newer version(possibly the newest).

Does it mean that the kexts I've used to make my Graphic card, Network and Sound work in the Hazard distro, will work in the retail version?

I assume that installing clean unedited version is better but I'm just not sure whether it's worth trying.



Thanks for the help!

In addition to Rampage Dev's recommendations, please provide us with some specifications about your system (CPU, Motherboard, Graphics & Model Number if applicable). Adding more specific information allows us to respond quickly with more precise answers. Chipset, LAN, Audio & If your Graphics are integrated or not, are excellent additions.

Partially you have already answered :)- if I've installed one it doesn't mean that it will work with any. I will edit my signature in a moment.


First of all I've installed Mac OS X using this guide: http://www.insanelym...ll-studio-1555/

My laptop: Dell 1555

Mobo: I don't really know how to find that info when I'm using Mac OS :(, that's what I've found using Ubuntu liveCD: http://i48.tinypic.com/352ptti.png

CPU: Intel Core2 Duo P8700

LAN: Broadcom Netlink BCM5787M LAN

WiFi: Intel 5100(won't work anyway)

GFX: ATI Radeon Mobility 4570 512 MB ram



Northbridge: Intel Cantiga PM45

Southbridge: Intel 82801IM ICH9-M

Audio: IDT 92HD73C1(not sure if it isn't just a Windows driver symbol)

Google your laptop model and look for a spec sheet. It should give you the information you are looking for.

Thank you. You were right, I was able to get into the installer with the parameters you provided.

Unfortunately I've experienced "boot0: error", which I fixed relatively fast with the little help of Google :).


Now I've found the answer to my first question myself, because kexts I've used in the 10.6.6 aren't compatible with 10.8 OS, or I don't know how to make it work.

I do. After failing with 10.8 I've reinstalled 10.6.6 again. Here is the list of kext displayed by System Info program: http://imm.io/O75x

But I've also applied ATY_Init.kext and IO80211Family.kext files which aren't listed there.


I assume that it's bad about the distros that I don't really know what has happened during the installation and post installation process.

But I've fallowed this guide and applied kexts included there(you can see it in the image- red dots) + I've replaced following files: /Extra/com.apple.boot.plist, /Extra/SMBios.plist and /boot using the tool DSDTPatcherGUI_1.zip included in the guide, files were in the archive Dell_Studio_1555.zip also posted in the guide.

    • Monitor EDID often contains OEM string in Details Timing section.

    • "copy to clip board" - "скопировать" "log copied to clip board!" - "журнал скопированного"   First one is better.   Good! I think to reduce EDID as talking above. 
    • And my config.plist I will also try iMacPro1.1 SMBIOS on my build. This may help clarify something
