So i'm trying to install OSX 10.4 Tiger (patched for intel cpus) on a 9 year old laptop, so far i've burnt a DVD and tried to boot from it, when not starting with -v it loads and then a prohibited sign shows up, and when starting with -v it keeps saying "still waiting for root device", i've tried multipile fixes and none of them work, and im sure there isnt a problem with the computer as it also fails to boot on my core 2 duo machine, so is it possible one of you guys knows how to fix this? Thanks in advance!
So i managed to install Tiger on a Dell Latitude D505 with some coaxing. But the wireless didnt seem to work out of the box " not a big surprise" People had written these drivers for the hardware i had so i thought it wouldnt be an issue. But i find out now that the links to them are dead because of how long ago they were posted. If anyboody could help me out finding a kext for the Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG/2915ABG
That would be great, cause its hard to find remaining help for these old things.
Hiya, im new to the forum and also pretty new to hackintoshing itself. I have an old dell latitude d505 and decided to install Tiger on it just to check it out. After days of searching i found a link to download the JaS dvd installer that still worked. I installed it and after a a little coaxing it completed. But when it restarts the apple logo appears with the spinning wheel, then the wheel freezes in place and after a minute i can hear the welcome video begin to play. It just stays on the apple logo with the frozen wheel even though behind the scenes i can tell im on the setup screen due to the sound ques. I know that the x86 project and Tiger have long since parted ways, but if theres anybody that could give me a hand with this that would be awesome. Cause theres not alot of places i could look for help on this ancient project.
