Installed Mac OS X Leopard (Kalyway) Perfect.

Recommended Posts

I've tried installing Mac OS X Tiger before, on some older hardware. I used the JAS DVD back then, but it just didn't work all that well but that is probably due to the fact that the hardware I was running it on was a AMD Athlon 64 which only supported SSE2 instructions. Well anyway, a couple of days ago I started to read into how the OSX86 community was going and I read on Lifehacker.com that the OSX86 community was able to get Leopard running on X86 hardware with a vanilla kernel. I was wicked excited to hear this so I rushed out and bought some parts for my first Hackintosh build. Here are the specs.

 

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600

 

Samsung SH-S203B DVD burner

 

2GB of DDR2 667 Memory (I used G.Skill)

 

Shuttle SD30G2 barebones

 

250GB SeaGate SATA2 Hard drive

 

and to finish it off I got a Apple keyboard, and a Apple Mighty Mouse.

 

The system is awesome its really fast (faster than my MacBook) I plan on overclocking it in the future as this processor is awesome for overclocking. I also plan on buying a PCIE graphics card (I'm using the built in GMA950 right now)

 

I would just like to thank everyone in the community that helped make this so easy. It was literally no harder to do than if I am installing it on a real mac.

@iLinyC when you are booting from the Kalyway install what happens if you hit F8 when it starts to boot from the disc and at the boot: prompt type in -v. Try this and tell me what happens.

Hmm...if you want to make a video that would be good. Have you tried typing -v a the boot prompt? If so what does it do? Anyone else want to chime it? Anyone else have a similar experience?

If I do not pulsate rapidly f8, there gives me the mistake directly, but if I give him rapidly, I enter the "console" and put -v, he give me the same error

 

i make the video with te parameters of jmicron and sata, 10 minutes and upload to youtube

I had the same Kalyway problem on my ASUS P5K-E motherboard. Try installing Kalyway on a external USB drive. I used my HD-DVD xbox 360 drive and that worked for me.

Yea, my guess is it had to do with the IDE LG drive if kaneda says it works with a USB drive then I am even more certain that it is the IDE controller not functioning properly with the Kalyway install. Why don't you buy or borrow (if you know someone that can lend you a SATA drive) a cheap SATA drive and see if that works, or take kaneda's advice and use a USB drive to install. You can get the same drive that I got from Newegg.com for $30 it is a SATA DVD Burner, and it seemed to work perfectly.

I am planning on buying a rigg just like yours. Did everything work out of the box? If not could you post what you did to get everything to work?

All the apps work? I am curious because I want to order everything you bought.

 

Thank you

Almost everything worked perfectly fine out of the box. Some things to know though is you need a patch for the audio and the network but it is incredibly easy to patch. Some information on installing on this hardware can be found here: http://wildwobby.com/hardware/build-a-mac-for-350/ Besides patching audio and network it works pretty much perfectly. The only other thing that doesn't work is sleep, but you get over that quickly because you are so amazed by how well everything else works.

    • 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
