  1. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I've been trying to install Snow Leopard on my AMD based PC in a VM using Hazard's modified OSX installation ISO. The installation runs smoothly to around 3/4 completed, when I get an error stating that: "The Installer could not validate the contents of the 'OxFordDictionaries' package. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance.". I checked the customization options to make sure the package wasn't included with anything I selected and it was not listed there. It seems to be a core package but I'm unsure to what the problem is, is it corrupted? Should I re-download the ISO? I'm unsure as to what to do so please reply it will help alot! Since it is a VM i couldn't copy and paste a log from the installation but the lines towards the bottom of the errors log say: Dyld error message: unknown required load command 0x80000022 and, TheOxfordDictionaries package failed to validate. I'm unsure the Dyld error one has anything to do with it though because there are a few of them in the logs and the installation seems to continue fine. Please reply I know there is someone that can help, and sorry if this is a noob-ish question xD.

  4. I used NAWCOM BootCD with boot: mach_kernel to get my retail Snow Leopard disc to begin its thing. It got as far as "Refusing new kext com.apple.lokit.IOUSBFamily, v3.9.6: already have loaded v6.6.6.". Then it hung at "com_lnx2mac_RealtekRTL81xx: Ethernet addres 00:1f:c6:04:74:b0". I've attached a photo of what was on the screen. Did I forget something? HP Pavilion A6400f Intel E2200 CPU 8 GB RAM ASUS IPIBL-LB mobo

HDD: 500GB SATA Internal I am running Snow Leopard and Lion under OS X, Windows 8 (64 bit), Windows 7 (64bit) and Windows XP (32 bit) under Windows, LinuxMint 64bit Mata) for Ubuntu. Credits: I am no technocrat and have no experience in programming but just a geek who loves to experiment with gadgets. I have to thank every programmer in the Hackintosh community and Ubuntu community for providing FREE, easy installation tools, driver files, software and installation guides for non-techno geeks like me. Without their unprecedented effort and dedication to the community this would have been impossible and we would be at the mercy of buying expensive macs. A big thanks to google for providing such a great search engine. Disclaimer: Though every care has been taken to prepare this guide accurately and explanations are kept to simple, you will use it at your own risk. I will not be held responsible if anything goes wrong and you end up corrupting or loosing your data or if your laptop becomes non-functional. LET’S GET STARTED PRE-REQUISITES: If you are starting from an existing Windows setup, backup all your data to an external drive as this procedure will completely erase your hard disk. If you have a spare SATA drive, that’s the best way to start. You will need retail installation CD’s or USB drivers of all the Operating Systems you intend to install and drivers CD’s. Keep them ready and at arms length. Download and create a GPARTED bootable CD. You will need a working windows computer to create one. Download it from here. If this link does not work then search “GPARTED download?? in google. Download latest version of EasyBCD from here and save it to a pen drive. You will need it later for restoring Windows MBR. Windows, OS X and Linux installation internal issues are not covered here. It is assumed that you are well aware of installing various versions of Operating Systems and troubleshooting problems. INITIAL SET-UP PROCEDURES AND PARTITIONING Predetermine how much space you want to allocate to each Operating System. This is a very important step. Write down on a piece of paper in advance as to how much space you want to allocate to each OS and Data partition. Mine is a 500GB SATA (actual size 465 GB) drive and this is how I partitioned. 1st - 30 GB for OS X Snow Leopard 2nd - 30 GB for OS X Lion 3rd - 30 GB for Windows XP 4th - 70 GB for Windows 7 5th - 70 GB for Windows 8 6th - 200 GB for Data 7th - 35 GB for Linux Please note that OS X partition should always be at the beginning of the partition table and you can keep Linux to the end of the table as it is the most flexible when it comes to the location of bootloaders. First set BIOS to boot from CD / USB drive whichever is your preference for installing Operating Systems. I suggest you stick to CD ROM. You may need to press delete key or F2 button to invoke BIOS. Boot from GPARTED live CD and accept all default settings. Be patient, it will finally boot into its GUI interface and will detect you hard disk and its exiting partition table. Delete all existing partitions and apply changes. Now you will have a single partition of a completely unformatted hard disk showing its full capacity. I am using MBR partition table for partitioning as my motherboard BIOS does not support EFI. MBR has a built-in restriction of a maximum of 4 primary partitions. But we need a total of 7 partitions, 2 for OS X (Snow Leopard & Lion), 3 for Windows (XP, 7 & 8), 1 for Linux and 1 for Data on a single hard disk. So, to overcome the MBR limitation, first create three primary partitions, one for OS X, second for Windows XP and the third for Linux in GParted. Give proper labels to partitions for easy identification later during installation. Following is my way of allocation. 60 GB for OS X at the start of the partition. (Labeled as OS X and formatted as hf+) 30 GB for XP (labeled as Windows XP, format ntfs). 340 GB as Extended Partition (unformatted to be altered later) 35 GB for Ubuntu at the end (Labeled as Linux formatted as ext3) Once the partition structuring is done, recheck everything, apply the changes and exit GParted, remove the CD and shut down or restart the laptop. WINDOWS XP INSTALLATION Boot with Windows XP CD. On reaching the setup screen, select the partition labeled Windows XP to install. You may reformat the partition if you want but not necessary. Follow the usual procedure to install Windows XP. Windows XP will boot into its default desktop. You can install drivers later after installing all other Operating Systems. Open Disk Management. To do this easily, Click “Start?? and Click “Run?? command. Type the following into the Run box “diskmgmt.msc?? without the quotes. And press “OK??. Else you can also open Disk Management going into opening Control Panel and selecting Performance & Maintenance / Administrative Tools / Computer Management / Disk Management. Once Disk Management is invoked, the partition table created with GParted can be viewed here. Now look for the Extended Partiton you created in GParted. It will be seen here as “Free Space??. Right click on “Free Space?? and select the option “New Logical Drive??, click “Next?? (Logical Drive will be selected by default) and click “Next??. (Allocate the correct space you have planned for Windows 7, very important step) Click “Next??, use default option “Assign the following drive letter??, click “Next??, select options as format “NTFS??, “Default?? and label volume as “Windows 7?? using the keyboard and tick “Quick format??. Leave “Enable file and folder compression?? unchecked and click “Next?? and then “Finish??. Disk management will format, be patient. Once formatting is over, under the partition table you can see a new partition “Windows 7?? and free space. Repeat the above procedure with the free space partition to create two more partitions for “Windows 8?? and “Data??. (Again allocate the spaces correctly) For Data partition, choose FAT32 format as it can be read by Windows, OS X and Linux. It can be later changed to “exFAT?? as it is better than FAT32. Now you should be able to see 5 partitions under Disk Management. Remove you XP installation CD and shut down the laptop. WINDOWS 7 INSTALLATION Boot with windows 7 installation CD in the drive. Please ensure that you have set first boot to CD Drive, else BIOS will boot Windows XP from hard disk. Even after setting BIOS to boot from CD Drive, after BIOS detects your OS CD it will wait for 5 seconds for you to press any keyboard key to boot from it, else it will boot from hard disk. When you reach the install screen, select the version (mine was Windows 7 -Ultimate), click “Next??, instead of “upgrade option?? select “Custom advanced??. Select the Windows 7 partition and start Install. Follow the usual procedure and install Windows 7. On final reboot, at the bootloader screen, you will notice that you have 2 Operating Systems labeled “Earlier Version of Windows?? and “Windows 7??. The earlier version is Windows XP. Windows 7 will be set to boot as default OS. Let it remain and don’t change anything now. Boot Windows 7 and if all goes well you should be able to boot into Windows 7 desktop. Open Diskmgmt if you want to check the partition table. Don’t touch anything here. Quit Diskmgmt and shut down the computer. You are ready to install Windows 8. WINDOWS 8 INSTALLATION Boot from Windows 8 DVD. Enter Windows key and on setup screen choose “Custom Advanced??. Select partition labeled “Windows 8?? (format as NTFS if you want, this will erase Volume Label which you can insert later) and start installing Windows 8. Go through the steps to complete windows installation. Once you have successfully installed Windows 8, it will boot into a beautiful bootloader with a blue background listing all your three windows installations. Boot into Windows 8. Open Disk Management and if the Windows Volume labels are missing then name them again. You can do this by right clicking each partition (windows XP, 7 and 9), opening the Properties panel and keying in the name in the blank space. If you intend to have more two OS X operating system, you need to do additional stuff. (Please note that you cannot do this in Windows 7 or XP, as it will not allow more than 4 Primary Partitions) Run “diskmgmt.msc?? to open Disk Management under Windows 8. You can view the partition table. Right click on the partition you created for OS X (it will be at the beginning) and delete it. Right click again on the “unallocated space?? and select “New Simple Volume??, click “Next??, Allocate the space you need for the first OS X partition (I allocated 30GB for OS X Snow Leopard). Format it as FAT32 (do not use NTFS) and label volume as "Snow Leopard" or whatever you want to for your OS X. Once format is over, you can see your Snow Leopard partition followed by unallocated space. Repeat the procedure to create more OS X partitions and format them as FAT32. I created one more of 30GB and named it OS X Lion. Now under partition table, you can see a total of 7 partitions (assuming you used 2 partitions for OS X) which was what we wanted to achieve at the beginning. You are now ready to install OS X and Linux. OS X SNOW LEOPARD AND LION INSTALLATIONS. I am not covering issues related to installing OS X on PC machines. I presume your laptop supports Mac OS X and that you already have the necessary tools and driver files and any issues therein will not be addressed here. Mac OS X prefers GUI partition table for installation and will not install on MBR partitioned drives. So we need a mod CD to enable installation into a MBR partition. I used Nawcom MOD CD for my laptop from here The other options are tools like My hack 3.1 : Link U{censored}: Link You might need to register to avail these downloads. Also before you proceed, keep ready in a pen drive all your hackintosh specific kexts, bootloaders like Chameleon, Extra folder, any DSDT file that you use and tools like myhack, Chameleon Wizard, Kext Utility, DSDT editor etc. I am giving below the Snow Leopard installation procedure for my laptop (Dell Inspiron 6400 – hardware specifications given at the beginning) Boot with modCD. Keep the original OS X Snow Leopard Retail Install Disk ready (Do not use install disks that came with Mac laptops, it will not work). Wait till modCD boots completely. It will show all your windows partitions. Eject the modCD, insert the original OS X Snow Leopard retail DVD, wait for 10 seconds and press F5. The OS X install DVD will be detected and selected by default. If you want to see what happens during boot, type –v to boot in verbose mode and press enter. A lot of text will flow across the screen like the old DOS days. Be patient and follow any onscreen instructions. The installer screen will appear after sometime. At the installer screen, choose language and click “Next??. Click on “Continue?? and proceed. You will now see an install screen showing hard disk partitions. Linux partition will not be visible. Click the “Utilities?? menu at the top and select “Disk Utility?? Now select the 1st OS X partition (will be seen here as New Volume) that we created in "Windows 8 Disk Management". Erase using the format OS X Extended (Journaled). You can give the volume label now. I named it as “Snow Leopard.?? Repeat the procedure with the next OS X partition (again labeled as New Volume). I gave the volume label as "Lion". Quit disk utility and select Snow Leopard partition to install. You may customize the installation according to your need. If your installation went off successfully, the system will reboot. Remove the Snow Leopard DVD and insert the modCD and boot again from it. After modCD completes booting, you can see Snow Leopard partition along with windows partitions. Select Snow Leopard partition, use –v flag to boot in verbose mode and press enter. I used additional flags like arch=i386 and cpus=1 along with –v. If the installation goes without any problem, you will reach setup screen. Follow the onscreen instruction (create an Administrative Password when asked for, don’t leave it blank) to boot into Snow Leopard Desktop. Remember to note down the password as you will need it while installing bootloaders and kexts. From the pen drive transfer the kexts folder, Extra folder and other tools to the desktop. Transfer myhack to applications folder and kext utility to Utilities folder in Slow Leopard partition. Eject the pen drive. Install Chameleon Bootloader (I used Chameleon v21.svn r1814). Run myhack 3.1 to install “Extra folder?? and kext utility to install kexts depending upon your hackintosh configuration. All the boot order kernel flags can be embedded in the “chameleon.plist?? file in “Extra folder?? so that you need not use it every time during boot. You may use “text edit?? or Chameleon Wizard to edit “chameleon.plist?? file. Now remove the modCD and reboot directly from Snow Leopard partition to confirm a clean installation without panics and restarts. During the boot process, Chamaleon bootloader will take over from Windows as the default bootloader. We can correct it later. Downloaded your hackintosh recommended combo update and apply. In some cases re-installation of kexts maybe needed as it may get overwritten by the update. So re-install kexts and apply permissions before restarting. If you have managed to reach this stage, you are ready for the next install. If you want to install any more OS X installations (like say Lion), do so now. Use the recommended procedure for Lion installation for your hackintosh. All you need to do is to select the Lion partition during installation. In my case I used myhack 3.1 in Snow Leopard to create a bootable OS X Lion USB flash drive to install Lion. Assuming you successfully installed both Snow Leopard and Lion, your boot screen with Chameleon should show the following partitions with volume labels. Snow Leopard Lion Windows XP Windows 7 Windows 8 The Windows MBR resides on Windows XP partition. So you cannot select Windows 7 and Windows 8 directly from here. They will not boot. Once you select Windows XP, it will boot directly into Windows 8 and you will not able to access Windows 7 and Windows XP. We will correct it later. You can however boot directly into Snow Leopard and Lion by selecting the respective partitions. You can hide the Windows 7 and Windows 8 partitions during boot by editing in “Text Edit??, the chameleon.plist file in Extra folder with the hide partition flag. You can also use the application Chamaleon Wizard to do it. Now is the time to install Linux. LINUX INSTALLATION I used LinuxMint 13 Maya 64bit Mate desktop for this purpose. Download from here and create a bootable disk. Shut down the laptop and Boot from Mint disk. It will take a while, be patient. Screen will go blank, just relax, you can see that the CD is being read. First the cursor will appear as Mint boots for the first time. Then the desktop screen will appear. Click on “Install Linux Mint?? icon on desktop to install Linux. Follow the on screen instructions till you reach “Installation Type Screen?? This step is very important, if you are careless, you could end up erasing your hard disk. Under options, select “Something Else??. You will able to view the entire partition table in the next screen. Linux partition will be the last partition of the drive. You will not be able to see Volume Labels but only Device ID’s and partition types. Be careful to choose the correct partition for Linux. In my case it was the last one with Device ID as “free space??. Select the partition and click on ‘Add??. Allocate the entire space (if you do not want Swap partition), Location “Beginning??, format “ext3?? or “ext4??, Mount Point as “/?? and click ‘ok?? to apply changes. Now click “Install Now?? to begin installation. Ignore the warning about swap space and continue with the installation and follow the on screen instructions. Important: Ignore the “Select Accounts to transfer?? option and continue with installation. Once Mint is installed it will ask for restart. Click on restart and remove the Mint CD when instructed on screen. On reboot, you will now be welcomed by the GRUB2 (Linux) bootloader. It will have the following entries Default LinuxMint Boot LinuxMint Recovery Mode Memory tester 86+ Memory tester serial console OS X 32 bit OS X 64 bit Windows 8 Loader You can safely boot both Linux and Windows from here. However you still cannot boot into Windows 7 and Windows XP. OS X could sometimes give a problem as this boot may ignore any kernal flags that you included with chameleon.plist file. Depending on whether you are booting OS X in 64 or 32 bit select your boot for OS X. If you find the GRUB2 bootloader too cluttered, then you can remove entries by editing GRUB2 menu. Boot into Linux Mint and do the following steps. To remove the mem86 entries, do the following Open terminal and type sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/20_memtest86+ Now press enter and key in you administrator password. Next at command prompt, type “exit?? to quit terminal. Next to remove grub recovery option, Double click on “Computer?? icon on desktop, Click on File System, Open “etc?? folder, then the “default?? folder and open the grub file as administrator (right click and use “open as administrator?? option and enter password when asked for). Remove the # sign in front of GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true" and save the file. Be careful not to uncomment (i.e remove # sign) from any other lines. Close all open windows and get back to desktop. Then open Terminal again and type sudo update-grub Now enter password to update. Grub will update changes, wait till it completes and quit terminal. Reboot to check if the changes have been effected. For detailed explanations check this site. Link If you only use 32 or 64 bit OS X then you can remove the redundant entry by editing grub.cfg file located in File System/Boot folder/Grub folder Be very careful with this file, any goof up will render Linux unbootable. You can remove entries or even move them up and down and so on. First create a back-up of grub.cfg file and save it in your home folder. For example, to remove the OS X 64 bit entry from the file, locate “menuentry “Mac OS X (64-bit)......................................................................................................................................................................................xnu_splash /Extra/splash.tga fi fi } Delete this portion from the file and save. Do not update grub like you did before. Just reboot and you will find the OS X 64 bit entry is gone. RESTORING WINDOWS MASTER BOOT LOADER Boot into GRUB2 and select Windows 8 loader to boot into Windows 8. Open “My Computer?? and write down the Drive names for Windows XP, 7 and 8. Transfer EasyBCD (version 2.2) installer file that you downloaded at the beginning from the pen drive to Windows desktop. Run and install EasyBCD. After installation Run EasyBCD. As it opens, it will give an error window about a missing BCD registry file. Click “No?? to open EasyBCD window. Click on “BCD Deployment??, Under “Partition?? select the “Windows XP?? partition. You can identify it from size. Since Windows XP is the only “Primary partition?? in Windows installations, bootloader can only be deployed to this partition. Do no select any other partition. Under ‘MBR Configuration Option??, select Windows Vista/7 and Click on “Install BCD?? button. Click on “Yes?? in the next pop-up window and quit EasyBCD. Now restart EasyBCD. Click on “Add New Entry?? button at the left. Under Type select “Windows 7/8??, Change Name to “Windows 8??, Under Drive select C:\ (this was the windows 8 partition in my case) Then click on “Add Entry?? button at the right side of the window Go to “View Settings?? and you can see Entry 1 as Windows 8 Again click on “Add New Entry?? button. Under Type select “Windows 7/8??, Change Name to “Windows 7??, Under Drive select E:\ (this was the windows 7 partition in my case) Then click on “Add Entry?? button at the right side of the window Go to “View Settings?? and you can see Entry 2 as Windows 7 Again click on “Add New Entry?? button. Under Type select “Windows NT/2k/XP/2k3??, Change Name to “Windows XP??, Under Drive select “Automatically Determined?? Then click on “Add Entry?? button at the right side of the window Go to “View Settings?? and you can see Entry 3 as Windows XP Again click on “Add New Entry?? button. Select Linux/BSD at the top. Under Type select “GRUB2??, Change Name to “Linux Mint??, Under Drive select “Automatically Locate and Load?? Then click on “Add Entry?? button at the right side of the window Go to “View Settings?? and you can see Entry 4 as Linux Mint Again click on “Add New Entry?? button. Select Mac at the top. Under Name type “Mac OS X?? Change Mode from EFI to MBR (Important) Then click on “Add Entry?? button at the right side of the window Go to “View Settings?? and you can see Entry 5 as Mac OS X. Click on “Edit Boot Menu?? button on the left Here you can select your default OS (windows 8 in this case), change the wait time, reorder the partition position and also delete entries. I reordered the entries as follows. Windows 8 (Default) Mac OS X Linux Mint Windows 7 Windows XP Exit EasyBCD and reboot. You will now boot into Windows Bootloader showing entries as follows Windows 8 Mac OS X Linux Mint Windows 7 Windows XP From here you can select to boot into each OS directly. If you have more than one OS X installed, then they will show up when you select "Mac OS X" to boot. Boot into each operating system to ensure that all of them boot independently. THAT’S IT. YOU NOW HAVE A PERFECTLY WORKING BOOTLOADER TO ACCESS ALL YOUR INSTALLED OPERATING SYSTEMS
  6. First of all i already know that this video card is very problematic, i'm trying to get this thing running with snow leopard 10.6.8, to be more specific it's a XFX HD 6750 DDR3 Juniper (Device ID 68bf-1002 SubDevice ID 1682-314A) does anyone had luck with this card? does it work with chimera (which i don't know how to use it)? should i flash, and if yes, to what specific rom? or there is any "guaranteed" method to get this card working properly, please a little guide would be nice since i'm very new to this, btw i already tried the most common methods like editing IOPCIMatch, which always makes my monitor go off after booting (like when you unplug the monitor cable) no crashes though.

  10. I am currently working on upgrading my sandy bridge hackintosh from 10.6.3 to 10.9. I have succesffuly used the updatehelper from u-know-where to update to 10.6.8 successfuly. I was excited for this handy app store to get mavericks, but I ran into a problem. The app store does not work saying the device or computer is not recognized. I have tried removing all of my ethernet connections and putting them back. That did not work so I am open to any solution. (it also seems that booting with "PCIRootUID=1 and EthernetBuiltin=Yes" causes black screen and "EthernetBuiltin=Yes and -x" causes kernel panic.)

  12. So I had a working install of Snow Leopard dual booting alongside Mint 11, but I wanted to update my linux system. ?During the refit process I decided to shuffle some partitions around and moved my Hackintosh partition to the end of the table. ? For reference the original partition scheme looked like this [Linux][snow Leopard][Linux Swap] ? for some reason, my swap partition was off by itself in a linux extended partition so, since I was dividing my Mint 16 install into [/boot][/][/home] anyway, I decided to delete the swap partition, move the Snow Leopard partition to the right and put swap between /boot and / ? here's where things get hairy: ? after several hours in gparted moving the OS X partition, gparted crashes, and won't restart, ?either from the live usb I created, or from the Linux partition which remains bootable. ?At this point, the OS X partition is also bootable. ? Unable to get gparted to work, I instead boot into my Mint 16 KDE live image, which I have booting on my usb stick alongside gparted and perform my re-partition of the linux side and install Mint 16 everything goes off without a hitch (except that I failed to install grub to the MBR of /dev/sda... an oversight I remedied) ? Mint boots fine, the OS X partition remains intact, with a few errors in the partition header that I corrected using disk utility on my usb installer for Snow Leopard. ? the only problem I'm having now is that when I select my Hackintosh chainloader option in the grub menu, the screen clears and I see "boot0: done" and a flashing cursor. ?It just sits there doing nothing. ?I can't even get it to boot using the bootloader on my usb installer. ? So I boot into my Snow Leopard installer and re-install Snow Leopard, and I can now boot in using my usb stick as a bootloader, but my graphics card is blacklisted, so the highest resolution I can get is 1024x768... ? it's been over a year since I went through this last, and I could use some pointers. ? my system specs: MOBO: ASUS M4A79T Deluxe CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 Graphics: XFX Radeon HD 5770 RAM: ?8Gb GSkill Ripjaws DDR3 NET: Netgear wn311b ? installer: Nawcom's mod usb ?

  13. Dear All, I've just got one of the new Toshiba NB510 netbooks with the new Cedar Trail processors (Atom N2600) and GMA 3600 graphics. I know it's not supported yet but I though I'd have a go with installing Snow Leopard anyway. Here's the story so far... First I tried NetbookInstaller 0.8.5pre to make a USB stick bootable. This boots OK but crashes on the "Should have 2 Cores, but only found 1 for Die o" error. The fix for this is to turn off hyperthreading but like many computers, the BIOS on the Toshiba doesn't have this option. However, under "Power Management" you can disable "Core Multi-Processing" which does much the same thing (it actually turns off multithreading and one of the cores so you have a single core, single cpu computer. It now gets much further. It will actually boot in single user mode and in regular mode it gets to the "ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out". I've spent quite a while deleting and moving KEXTs and haven't been able to get any further than this. It makes a difference but only that it crashes sooner rather than later. Then I thought I'd try an alternative approach using one of the CD options. I tried iAKTOS V2 S3 since it seemed fairly recent. It boots OK even with all the hyperthreading enabled but crashes at "EHCI controller unable to take control from BIOS" and then "Still waiting for root device". I've tried all the USBxxxx=Yes boot options but they either have no effect or make it crash earlier. USBBusFix=Yes gives an "EBIOS read error: Device timeout" for example. If I turn off "USB Legacy Emulation" in the BIOS then I can't boot off the CD. I've tried a few other CD based installations: the new "Hackintosh-India Bootcd V2.0" and "OSX86_ModCD-151021.iso". They boot OK but when I do the disk swap they won't recognise the Snow Leopard install disk. The I thought I'd play with NetbookInstaller a bit more - the precompiled version is quite old and the svn version has had quite a lot of work done on it recently. I got the source from the repository and compiled it up (not entirely straightforward but all minor stuff like adding some missing framework libraries and fixing a script because a DSDT is missing - release compiles fine but debug I think needs to be compiled on a Lion machine and I'm still running on Snow Leopard). NetbookBootMaker.app installs itself happily on my MBR formatted USB stick with a Snow Leopard Install image copied across. This now gives me an "Unknown chipset 0xBF18086, please email id" error which I'm guessing comes from the Chameleon bootloader than was packaged with NetbookBootMaker. It still crashes if "Core Multi-Processing" is on, but if that is disabled then it boots OK. It still needs "USB Legacy Emulation" enabled to boot. It pauses quite a long time at "PostbootMounter" but then the NTFS driver loads and it continues and finally dies at "ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out" again. So no fix there. I suspect that what I need is the right DSDT but it isn't at all clear how you incorporate that in this version. Next I tried MyHack 3.1.2 - easily the prettiest boot USB maker. However it just gets itself into an endless boot cycle after boot0. Next I tried the manual version of the hackintosh-india.com approach using the "Snow Leopard Files" (hand edit OSInstall.mpkg using Flat Package Editor.app, followed by Chameleon and copying over some KEXT files). I followed their instructions and it boots OK (and I know a lot more about what is going on under the hood). However this version now causes a kernel panic at AppleACPIPlatform. This version is nice and easy for playing with KEXTs but I couldn't seem to get any further. I think the reason that NetbookInstaller is doing the best is that it is patching a few files at run time as well as installing the boot loader and some KEXT files. It creates various RAM disks during boot up and copies the install files there, patching some of them on the way. It knows about several netbooks although none of them are Toshiba ones. My feeling is that with the right DSDT file and set of KEXTs it should boot. Particularly I wonder whether editing the USB entries in the DSDT would fix some of the USB problems. I downloaded the DSDT file in Windows to see what it was like but it's likely to be wrong because my XP boot uses SATA in IDE compatibility mode whereas it runs as AHCI for SL. I notice that Dell Mini 9, Mini 12, HP Mini 311 and Lenovo S10 all have USB patches in their DSDT files but they don't map exactly to the relevant sections in the Toshiba DSDT. Anyway hopefully someone can suggest a few things I haven't tried. Cheers Bill
  14. So I'd like to create my first Hackintosh as everyone else I'm not sure about all the compatibility-specs with this computer (Asus K50IJ) but I've seen a few threads with people with this laptop creating their own Hackintosh Machines and my files are all backed up so I thought I'd give it a shot! I've already created a 110gb partition for installation. I also downloaded and burned Nawcom's ModCD and downloaded Snow Leopard. Heres where I'm stuck: Snow Leopard is 6GB and Single Layer DVDs are as we all know 4.7 GB. I also have a 32 GB USB as another option but I am not sure how USB installations work. Can someone please guide me from here? step by step would be incredibly helpful. Thank you in advance for your time!
  15. Hi everyone. I am experiencing so many problems with my hackintosh. Most importantly, I am using an AMD processor. When I go to customize the hard disk I created especially for Mac, it does not contain the legacy kernel I need to have to run Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on my AMD Athlon processor. I am also getting freezes that never go away when I am installing it. My PS/2 mouse does not work on it!!! My USB keyboard is functional though. I am currently using iATKOS S3 V2 and Nawcom's ModCD. I am dual- booting Windows and Mac. So can I please have some help to fix these issues? Also, when I boot with rd(0,0)/Extra/modbin_kernel,?it just says "cant find rd(0,0)/Extra/modbin_kernel." All of this is just SO frustrating!! Do I have to download the Legacy Kernel from somewhere? If so, how do I enable it? Please help!! I need this to work! Thanks!
  16. Hi all hackintosh expert, i'm very very very new in hackintosh world, but i'm very interested with it... i'm trying to install iATKOS S3v2 (Snow Leopard) to my Lenovo G470 Laptop, but every time i tried, it always end stucking at apple logo before installation is started... nothing happened... is there any help? my Laptop Spesification is: every time i try to boot with flag the result is: Thanks For All Your Help..
  17. i will be short, i just could not get anything working (10.6.8, the only distro that works fine), it`s impossible to find the right kext, i don`t know if i need to flash, if some good soul could help me get this video card working (not dsdt, my motherboard is really old), i browse all other forums, and i never get a solid guide how to get working,, thanks already. ? (please a little tutorial, i really don`t understand any method so far)
  18. a couple of days ago i installed mac os 10.6.3 on my laptop (Acer AOD257) using iATKOS_s3 and the darwin bootloader. but when i try to boot into mac osx from DB it outputs along the line of the following: ? ACPI table not found: DSDT.aml ACPI table not found: DSDT.aml ACPI table not found: DSDT.aml ACPI table not found: DSDT.aml SSDT table not found: SSDDT-1.aml SSDT table not found: SSDDT-2.aml SSDT table not found: SSDDT-3.aml SSDT table not found: SSDDT-4.aml Starting Darwin x86 ? and then crashes. ? one thing to note though is that i can boot off iB{censored} on a usb just fine so it cant be anything to do with the install itself. During the install i didn't select any custom kernels. ? i am also dual booting with windows 7 starter a while back i installed easybcd but i then broke my mbr.... so i reinstalled os x with a bootloader (darwin) so i can boot into windows. In this process, easybcd is now unable to change the windows bootloader back to what it was originally was or even change it at all. ? thanks for your help!? ? EDIT: fixed problem by installing the voodoopower kext

  21. Hello Everyone, I am trying to install "Mac OS X Snow Leopard Intel_Amd_By_Hazard.iso" on my DELL Latitude E4310 Laptop I have burned the iso to the DVD and is well working on my Desktop PC (Intel Core 2 Duo) but in my laptop I am having the below mentioned problem: Steps I took : Burned the ISO on DVD and set the Controller from BIOS to AHCI Mode And after selecting the boot device I press F8 and enter following bootflags : (tried different combinations different times) -x -v busratio=20 cpus=1 -x -v busratio=20 maxmem=4096 -x -v busratio=20 arch=i386 -x -v (reboots immideatly, no further progress) And using any of these bootflags I am able to install the MAC OS X successfully but the problem arises when it restarts after installing I am not able to boot it, The monitor shows the Chamaleon Bootloader and when I choose MAC OS X it automatically reboots and it repeats the same. ******************************************************** MY SPECS : Intel Core i5 2.67 GHz CPU 4 GB DDR3 RAM 250 GB SATA HDD Intel HD Graphics (i5) 1696 MB TSSTCorp - DVD R/W + DVD Multi Recorder *********************************************************
  22. Olá, sou novo no fórum e há uns 3 dias estou pesquisando a melhor forma de fazer um hackintosh no meu notebook. Encontrei muitos tutoriais em inglês nos fóruns do {censored}. Para fazer da melhor forma possível comprei o DVD de instalação do Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Pretendo fazer a instalação no HP Probook 4530s. Olhando algumas coisas na internet, achei um programa que fala se o notebook está "apto" a receber o sistema operacional da maçã, como vocês podem conferir comigo, acho que não terei grandes problemas quanto a isso: Minha primeira dúvida fora do hardware é o que tanto preciso para fazer a instalação, isto é, quais são os aplicativos que preciso fora a imagem de instalação que ainda está chegando em minha casa? Posso fazer o procedimento usando o Windows? Irei postando aqui todas as dúvidas referentes a instalação do mesmo até ter todos os procedimentos completados. Obrigado.
  23. Hey there everyone, I've been trying for a while to get OS X installed on my computer. So far I've tried Hazard 10.6.2 and also retail Snow Leopard with Nawcom's ModCD using plenty of different boot flags and I've had no luck. The computer always encounters an error and resets shortly after I hit enter. specs: AMD Phenom II x6 1045t ASUS M5A97 EVO 8GB DDR3 1600 Anybody have any ideas as to what's going wrong and how I might fix it? Thanks!
  24. Olá pessoal, estou abrindo um novo tópico, porque, honestamente, eu estou lá há três dias tentando instalar o Mac, mas eu não posso. Meu pc tem a seguinte configuração: Mobo MSI G41M-S01 (MS-7592) Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66Ghz DDR3 de 4GB GeForce 9500 GT 512MB Nvidea 500GB HD Windows 7 Então, queria saber como fasso para rodar Mac OS X Mountain Lion no meu PC
  25. I'm a noob on osx86 and this is my first post, I was trying to install snow leopard from this distro, "Snow_Leopard_10.6.1-10.6.2_SSE2_SSE3_Intel_AMD_by_Hazard". My specs (I know I'm in no position to install osx with this hardware, but I just need to use keynote for my work, nothing else): Motherboard: GA-G41M-COMBO INTEL G41/ICH7/rev.1.3 Processor: Dual core 3.00 GHz Ram: 2 GB DDR3 Graphics: Onboard intel 4 series express chipset (No external Graphics Card) After installing and restarting the pc, the apple logo appears and a grey screen says that "You need to restart your computer...." I googled it and tried with "-x -v" on the chameleon bootloader and pc started normally after a long time. Then when I tried to boot normally, it froze again. I don't know much but from googling I guess it's a kernel panic I attached the screen when performed a "-v" on the chameleon bootloader: can anyone please suggest me what to do? Or if it's impossible to rum osx on this hardware? Thanks in advance
