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. I need help if possible.
      I tried installing Big Sur on my Hackintosh with OC and Catalina working. Every time I try to boot it I receive a kernel panic relative to ACPI. The strange thing is that this kernel panic occurs only with Big Sur and High Sierra. Every other macOS version boots (I tried from 10.9 to 11).
       
      My build is:
      Motherboard: Gigabyte X79-UD3 CPU: Intel Core I7 4820K GPU: XFX Radeon RX570 I'm attaching the kernel panic and my EFI configuration (I still need to map the USBs 'cause I switched to OpenCore yesterday).
      PS. In the OC folder there's not a resources folder because I deleted it to upload it

      This post is targeted at users who have an Ice Lake-based laptop.
       
      - Major Updates on Sep 5:
      Both fixes have been integrated into WhateverGreen and will be available as of v1.4.2, so public tests are now over and thanks for your participation.
      I have renamed this post, so feel free to use it as a general discussion thread.
       
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      Mobile Ice Lake processors can be classified by their integrated graphics card into three categories, G1, G4, and G7.
      You could find information about your processor in the following table.
       

       
      Note that Apple uses NG* processors on genuine Macs.
      Even though device IDs of UHD Graphics on G1 series processors are not listed in Info.plist, the driver itself does support the hardware.
      As a result, you need to spoof the device ID (e.g. 0x8A5A) to make UHD Graphics work with full acceleration.
       
      As far as I know, there are two major issues one might encounter while trying to make the integrated graphics card work on macOS Catalina.
      1) The kernel panic due to an unsupported CD clock decimal frequency can be resolved by adding the boot argument `-igfxcdc`.
      panic: "[IGFB][PANIC][DISPLAY ] " "Unsupported CD clock decimal frequency 0x158\n" @/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/GPUDriversIntel/GPUDriversIntel-14.7.8/IONDRV/ICLLP/AppleIntelFramebuffer/AppleIntelClocks.cpp:348  
      2) The kernel panic due to an unsupported ICL SKU is related to DVMT pre-allocated memory.
      You might find something similar to the following lines right above the kernel panic message.
      [IGPU] HWCAPS - GPU Sku: 0 [IGPU] HWCAPS - VEDBOXEnableFuses:0xf00ff VEBox units enabled: 4 VDBox units enabled:8 [IGPU] HWCAPS - NumSlices: 0 SlicesCountFuse:0x0 [IGPU] HWCAPS - NumSubSlices:32 SubSliceCountFuse:0x0 [IGPU] HWCAPS - MaxEUPerSubSlice:8 EUDisableFuses:0x0 ExecutionUnitCount:256 [IGPU] ERROR: Unsupported ICL Sku! You could resolve this issue by changing the DVMT pre-allocated memory to 64MB or above in your BIOS.
      If your BIOS does not provide such options, you could try EFI Shell (setup_var) or RU.EFI to modify BIOS settings.
      If your laptop uses a custom UEFI firmware or has a strict BIOS protection, you should add the boot argument `-igfxdvmt` to solve the problem.
       
      Once you have applied above fixes, you should be able to boot into desktop with full graphics acceleration.
      If you get stuck in `gIOConsoleUser`, you should try different `ig-platform-id`s and make sure that you have enabled other necessary fixes, for example the Core Display patch (`-cdfon`) for built-in 4K display.
       
      You need to compile the latest WhateverGreen from the upstream repo (https://github.com/acidanthera/WhateverGreen) until Acidanthera officially releases v1.4.2.
       
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      3) Apple has removed the assertion of DVMT stolen memory from the framebuffer driver on ICL platforms, but you are strongly encouraged to patch the framebuffer properly to get rid of the insufficient stolen memory error.
       
      You could find the following line in your kernel log.
      kernel: (AppleIntelICLLPGraphicsFramebuffer) [IGFB][ERROR][DISPLAY ] Insufficient stolen memory You should adjust the size of framebuffer and cursor memory, so that the total amount of required stolen memory is less than the one pre-allocated by BIOS. This might also fix the distorted image around the mouse cursor.

      Hi there,
       
      I managed to install Mojave on my MSI GP62-6QE laptop with somewhat success. The only annoying thing left is that everytime I shut it down it seemingly kernel panics and I get the "Your computer has restarted because of a problem" at startup.
       
      I tried many different things such as removing emuvariablesuefi64, checking FixShutdown in CloverConfig but it seems the NVRAM is causing this issue.
       
      I have deleted the nvram file from the EFI partition but it seems stuck somewhere else, I can't clear out the nvram from the terminal or in single user mode as it returns a "Not permitted" error.
      Clearing out the nvram by pressing F11 at the boot menu screen works however.

      Help!!!
       
      I was running my MacPro 5,1 happily with GeForce GTX 970 with the n-1'th versions of nvidia web driver / High Sierra for several months, when suddenly, yesterday, whilst using zoom (vidconf), system reboots with kernel panic. So,
       
      1. I tested GPU RAM and main RAM using Tech Tool Pro, all fine.
      2. I swapped in the original graphics card so I could ..
      3. install latest High Sierra (17G14019) (I had been holding off for several weeks until an nvidia update became available, you know the drill...)
      4. install latest nvidia web driver (387.10.10.10.40.138)
      5. reboot and run Heaven graphics test
       
      Heaven ran for a few minutes before the kernel panic rebooted the system (attached kernel panic report).
      I managed to get "chat" support from nVidia but the tech was useless, saying there were no drivers for GTX 9series for mac (which actually he seems to be right, as I can't find it listed in the supported cards on their website, but then I and many others have been happily using this for years...).
       
      Any ideas? The computer keeps crashing with the same kernel panic. I want to keep using my GTX 970 as the stock GPU is deadly slow on any kind of games :-(
       
      Thanks in advance for your help!
