  1. The real problem is that previously, people complained it was made for Mac OS X Snow Leopard. I have never even gotten Snow Leopard to even boot said laptop. I have installed Mavericks on this laptop, and well... I'm glad the AMD CPU is being accepted by Mavericks. And I haven't gotten anything higher working. Now, it's too late to even download this half broken screen tearing glitchy kext. The download for it is gone... The GeForce Go 6100 mind you is from so long ago. Back around when Tiger was installed on these things back then when these laptops were still relevant (which I have lost a download to, so no Tiger either). I don't think graphics enabler even supports these older laptop graphics chips such as the GeForce Go 6100. My apologies for replying late btw. Not to mention the fact that this laptop doesn't even have discrete graphics. Just that one GeForce Go 6100... All I have ever gotten with iATKOS for Snow Leopard was well, nothing. Just a Apple logo. No -v, -x, -f, etc... It either hangs on Chameleon, or at the Apple logo. Doesn't show verbose, meaning that I am stuck tbh for Snow Leopard.
  2. I installed Mac OS X 10.5.5 Leopard via iDeneb v1.3 on my old Dell Dimension 4600 that no longer has an GeForce FX 5200 128MB AGP and has an ATI Radeon X1300 AGP 256MB. After enough hassle of getting it to boot onto the desktop, I noticed QE/CI has been automatically enabled and works properly, but there is two problems. 1. is that it's stuck on 1024x768 2. When I move the mouse sometimes the cursor leaves a texture from a previous window or from somewhere on the screen. For one thing is that I can live with the 1024x768 resolution if I have to, but the random texture problem is pretty annoying when trying to use the OS. And also, I don't care if I'm stuck on Leopard and older programs with only 32bit support. Help would be appreciated. This machine: Dell Dimension 4600 (not the 4600i) BIOS: A02 (from around 2003) RAM: 1024MB of RAM (or 1GB) Graphics Card: Used to have an Nvidia GeForce FX 5200, but now has an ATI Radeon X1300 on the AGP slot of the machine Keyboard: HP keyboard (I believe it belonged to the HP Pavilion 7935) Mouse: Some mouse (At the moment I'm not sure about the name/brand, but it's on the USB extender connected to the back USB port) Sound: AC97 CPU: Intel Pentium 4 HT 2.8GHZ PS: Someone else had this problem (but wasn't using iDeneb) and they were suggested to upgrade to 10.5.8, but he didn't do the backup kexts and kernel and replace Mac OS X Leopard combo method from back then, thus resulting in a kernel panic upon boot with him having to reinstall Mac OS X and gave up afterwards and decided to use a different graphics card. I followed this guide (except I didn't do the Nvidia stuff because I don't have an Nvidia card anymore): https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/143610-howto-dell-dimension-4600-ideneb-os-x-1055-perfect-install/
  3. I have decided to install Mac OS X Mavericks yet again on another laptop. This time on an Compaq Presario F577CL. I used the N{censored} Mavericks Distro and install it that way. When it finished installing I had to reboot it because it was stuck on "Installation Finished." The log showed that it was a bug in that menu/screen/or something that was supposed to show up simply just didn't and never did. After getting it to boot and using the -v -f and using the USB flash drive I used, I got to the setup wizard and after setting it up I was ready to install kexts. The only card that the laptop has as far as I know, is an integrated Nvidia GeForce 6100. Someone on OSX86.net has for download an nv_enabler, but apparently someone stated that it was for Snow Leopard and it just doesn't work like it should on Lion and later. I tried installing Snow Leopard, to use this kext, but that didn't work. Link to the nv_enabler I was talking about: After searching more, I have found this which has like a list of ID's and one of them is the GeForce 6100. Don't know if it's the same as GeForce Go 6100, but I don't know how to use/install/or do anything with it. So far, it seems that you... Chose a kext for Nvidia cards and change the ID? Link: https://www.{censored}.com/threads/nvidia-device-ids-2011-developer-list.40875/ Help would be appreciated.
  4. I found a DSDT around the Downloads Section of this website and found a DSDT for Mountain Lion (10.8) and installed it by copying it into the Extra folder and renaming it to "DSDT.aml" and this time it booted with a working DSDT. I then managed to install the patched ACPI kext from RehabMan and got it to successfully boot and managed to get the battery icon on the Apple Menu Bar. There is just one problem, the battery percentage is always zero even if it's not 100% full. It seems to get the estimated battery charge correct, but other than that it's just 0%. I read this is a problem with some Asus laptops, but I doesn't make since why this hasn't been addressed before with the N53SV. I haven't found another DSDT for the N53SV. I don't think the N53SJ DSDT will work properly on Mac OS X which on another forum post/site it says it should work on Snow Leopard.
  5. Well you see, when I first realized that Hackintoshing even existed Mavericks was already out of the App Store because of Yosemite. I didn't ever download Mavericks in any form until I found out how to do a basic Hackintosh. It is already too late to download Mavericks and now too late to even get Yosemite (Because I have a MacBook that only supported all the way down to Yosemite.) I have done some trial and error and now got the system booted but still no battery support. Could something like a patched ACPI or battery kext that isn't VooDoo or anything like that work? I have messed up my Mac OS X installation several times and for some reason they are painful and difficult to set up once you've messed them up. I apologize if this entire post has dragged on inconvenience.
  6. Sorry for the late reply, but I've tried looking for a vanilla installer but the only one I found so far claims to be a Mavericks app store image or ESD. When I opened it, I realized it was a the Mavericks N{censored} distro (basically what I was using). I've reinstalled and trying to get the kexts working but now, the touchpad (SmartTouchpadPS2 kext) causes a kernel panic. I've tried reinstalling it, deleting all PS2 related kexts and replacing them with ones that should work, and even trying another kext but all causes either a kernel panic, or a freeze at some point of booting. Hate to ask this, but do you know where I can get touchpad driver that works with the N53SV without a kernel panic? Hopefully I will find a kext in the meantime for the battery.
  7. I went messing around today with my Asus N53SV Laptop that people have claimed to have at least Mountain Lion running on it. I decided to install Mavericks on it using the N{censored} Mavericks USB version. I replaced the extra folder with an extra folder downloaded from this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/283739-guide-install-os-x-mountain-lion-1082-and-mavericks-1091-on-asus-n53snn53svn53sm-notebooks/ I chosen the file (since there's two files one of which doesn't have Nvidia support): Asus-Extra-Files-2-No-Nvidia.zip Don't ask why I went for this version and yes, I did make sure the BIOS was set to AHCI before booting into the setup. Either way, after booting into the installer successfully, I was able to choose all the settings I wanted from the N{censored} Mavericks installer (this included me not checking the Apple Smart Battery Kext Battery because of previous attempts Kernel Panicing the system after reboot) and installed to an external USB hard drive. After rebooting and filling out the Welcome Installer, I made sure I installed the, Wifi Kext, VooDooHDA kext, and the trackpad kext. I last looked at the battery kext and downloaded a version of the VooDoo battery kext for Mavericks 10.9 and higher and installed the two kexts using kext wizard. After rebooting, and using -v, after a few seconds it started with a loud nonstop beep and never went to the Desktop or Login Screen. I tried booting it up again this time with -v -x -f and Use_Kernel_Cache=false and this time it hangs at, "Incorrect Number of Thread Records." Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this or an alternative work around method? Before you ask, no I did not completely follow the instructions from the Insanely Mac page because the USB creation part was sorta broken since the video doesn't exist anyone following that I don't have a copy of Mountain Lion I only used the Extra folder to modify the N{censored} USB installer to help it boot up incase it didn't.
