Kernel Panic - AppleACPIPlatform

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, this is my first post here.

 

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:

 

Intel Pentium M 753 ULV @ 1.2GHz

1GB RAM

855GME Graphics/Chipset

 

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! :)

Yeah, I mistakenly put this in post-installation, when I meant to put it in the other one. I added it to the other one and intended on deleting the other, but didn't see the option. But this actually fits post-installation better.

 

I know you guys don't support tonymacx86, but I don't believe I really mentioned anything to do with him/them. If you're just warning me, then I understand. 

 

And if you can elaborate more on the distros, I'd appreciate it. If you guys don't allow the discussion, then that is fine, but I've seen loads of posts involving them, so I didn't know. The reason I included it is because it got me the farthest, but in the end it gave me the same kernel panic (but at least it allowed me to install...)

 

Thanks!

SL 10.6 is really not suitable for this platform. Leopard 10.5 would be a better choice although I still have doubts about any likely support for this ancient chipset and graphics chip: it's got ICH4-M I/O controller + Extreme 2 graphics... Maybe Tiger, but really, what's the point?

 

I have Leopard running perfectly on a 2005 Pentium M platform but it's fitted with the 915GM chipset (i.e. GMA900), not one of its predecessors such as yours. I could never get SL to run 100% properly on it and, God!, have I tried hard... Always had trouble with the ICH6-M controller in IDE mode at installation and, of course, no support for GMA900. I'm pretty sure you have Zero (0) chance to run SL on that dinosaur.

 

I don't want to ruin your high hopes but this laptop of yours is just what it is: very very old and totally obsolete. It's what, 15years old or so? You would hardly be able to run Win XP on it...

 

My advise is not to waste any time on this.

 

With regards to your comparison between booting the installer vs. the installed OS and your subsequent expectations, please note that the installer boots on a very minimal set of drivers. The installed OS boots with a very different setup.

Yeah Intel's Dothan architecture was released in 2004 so that makes it to date 13 years old. This particular processor has a HUGE TDP of 5.5W, SO MUCH POWWEEERRR. At least it's efficient lol.

 

I reckon Win95-2000 might work OK, but surely you could afford a $50 prebuilt Core 2 Duo Dell to put OS X on? It would be a MUCH better experience than trying to run it on the Pentium. Plus you could do a vanilla installation with no patching and screwing around with the kernel.

The laptop is from 2005, so about 12 (probably near 13) years old. Actually, it came pre-installed with XP and it was surprisingly snappy.

 

I actually just tried installing Leopard and it installed with no problems! It is surprisingly fast, but Leopard can even run on a 867MHz G4, so that's not too much of a surprise - I'm just not sure what is faster... A 1.2GHz Pentium M or an 867MHz G4. During the installation of Leopard, I noticed some kexts were available for it (I think patched AppleACPIPlatform + AppleAPIC). Of course they're for Leopard, but AppleACPIPlatform is the exact kext I had issues with, so just out of curiosity, I put them on the SL installer, and I'm seeing what happens right now.

 

Thank you very much for the advice!

I'm actually not going to be using this machine at all for everyday use, although it would be pretty awesome to do some basic stuff on it. I have many modern computers, including a triple boot (Windows 7 Ultimate, Ubuntu, and macOS Sierra) Hackintosh laptop with an i3-6100U, 128GB SSD, and 8GB RAM. I also have a 27" 2011 iMac, and a gaming PC that I plan on making a Hackintosh as well. Here's the reason why I want to do this: It's a 7" "laptop" that is really a UMPC (ultra-mobile personal computer). I got the idea that it would be super cool to run OS X on such a small machine. Here, I attached two pictures, one with a DVD on the keyboard to give you an idea of how small this now Hackintosh is.

 

Thanks for the reply!

Fair enough, well done making it work.

      Hi guys.

      Sometimes I am a complete noob, so I deleted two kexts from S/L/E and now my Asus Q200E laptop with OS X El Capitan boot hangs on kernel panic. I still can enter go through Clover to reach Recovery Mode and use Terminal, so I've put the two kexts on a USB pendrive and after some struggle I've managed to succefully copy them using Terminal, but the boot is still stuck on kernel panic. As I remember, these are the commands I've typed:

      mount -rw

      cp -a /Volumes/usb-stick/name.kext /Volumes/my-osx-drive/System/Library/Extensions

      Is there anything else I should do? Is anything wrong? Should I type some command else? For instance, should I type something to fix permissions and rebuild cache?

      Thanks a lot!

      le mie spec sono: i7 720qm , gt730 2 gb ddr3, 8 gb di ram e una motherboard che non si capisce modello sia(perchè? perchè è un preassemblato a cui ho modificato i componenti mi lascio anche uno screen di cpuid se può essere utile comunque è legacy,comunque la motherboard è intel. )
       
      Comunque ho creato un boot usb con clever per installare Sierra e tutto va okay fin quiando vado in kernel panic, ho provato diverse boot flags ma non riesco ad arrivare all'installer di Cupertino
      CHIEDO AIUTO,grazie ancora aspetto risposte

      Hello everyone, ever since installing the security update at the end of January, I've been having two issues.
       
      The first is the kernel panic that happens every time I try to boot. After much research, here and elsewhere, I learned that the issue is Lilu.kext which I did not update prior to installing the security update. So now I have the latest version downloaded to a USB drive, but I cannot copy it to the hackintosh...
       
      Every time I try to boot into Recovery, the system just locks up. So I tried replacing the file via the UEFI shell and again from Kali, and in both cases I couldn't because both OS's see the Mac's file system as "read-only." I did some research on how to fix Recovery and found that I need to put FakeSMC.kext in the /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other directory on the Recovery HD, which I cannot do for the same reason I can't replace the Lilu file (the HD is read-only to all other OS's).
       
      I tried booting off my old Snow Leopard CD, and that doesn't work either; every time I try it just quits mid-boot, resets the computer and reboots into Clover.
       
      Can anyone give me any suggestions? I'm out of ideas at this point.

      Hi guys, I Have an ASUS N752VX, and I've installed mac OS High Sierra, in my laptop. Unfortunately I have some problems with kexts.
       
      NOT WORKING:
      - Touchpad I2C,
      -  Ethernet.
       
      P.S. Maybe , the second one, is caused by my USB Wi-fi, because my wi-fi module seems to not work 'cause it is not compatible!
