    Red face help AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE 3.4 GHz Gigabyte GA-MA785GPMT -UD2H

    hi guys, I am a complete noob.
    could you please help me choosing the best Hackint0sh build for me

    I run on this hardware:
    cpu: AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE 3.4 GHz
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA785GPMT - UD2H
    Video onboard: Ati Radeon HD 4200
    Audio onboard: Realtek ALC 889A
    RAM: 4GB
    Network Card: 8111c (chip 8196 / 8111)
    Wireless Card: Wireless Ralink RT 2760 / RT 2720
    1sp Hard Drive: Western Digital 320 Gb SATA 2
    2nd Hard Drive: Western Digital 500 Gb SATA 2

    and I have formatted my 1st hard drive assigning a fat 32 100Gb space for this OS.

    could you help me, please?!

    btw: I have downloaded an iso, but I don't know if this is the best.
    ┐could you link me in the right direction in order to download the iso DVD?
    (send me a PM if this is a sensible information.)

    thanks in advance.

    Hi there,
    What iso you've downloaded? You can try Ideneb 1.6 10.5.8 as that the newest Leopard release with more hardware support.

    hello ratvn, thanks for answering.

    I have tried the iDeneb v1.6 10.5.8 Lite Edition. and when doing so, I had this:

    PHP Code:
    panic(cpu 0 caller 0x001Ac05E): "Vodoo rtclock_init panic"@/VodooKernel/xnu-1228.7.58/osfmk/i386/compage/compage.c:425
    Debugger called 
    <panic>
    Backtrace (CPU 0), Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack)
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ... 
    it goes on...

    here's an image



    what sould I do?
    thanks in advance

    Ok,
    How did your setup your BIOS?
    Any boot options were used?
    The partition you created is of PRIMARY type? Anything else on that disk? Like other OS? Post more detail so you don't chase things around.
    Regards,

    good! we're in business! (I was hopeless)
    I hadn't touched my BIOS at all <- what should I change?
    default boot options
    I have 4 partitions on this disk (in this order):
    • NTFS for win XP (already installed - 60 Gb - primary)
    • fat 32 for OsX ( 100Gb - primary)
    • swap (for ubuntu not installed yet - 2Gb swap)
    • ext4 for Ubuntu (not installed yet - 158Gb primary)


    thanks in advance!

    Good job!
    I like that. Many people don't understand that solving problem without even seeing the computer and the setup are not that easy, and did not provide enough information to begin with.

    Your installation will be a bit tricky being AMD CPU/chipsets for one, and it's very recent for OSX kernel/system to work with.

    1. Board BIOS, OSX installed and works with SATA in AHCI mode ONLY, windowXP is IDE mode. So for now, to your BIOS, SATA to AHCI, ACPI enable, if needed to (for easier installation) disable LAN, Audio, disable legacy USB, disable USB keyboard/mouse, HFET enable, S3 power option.

    2. OSX Chameleon bootloader won't boot to a logical partition, so a primary one needed for OSX to reboot after installation (it can boot XP as well). You got this done so that one problem down, but you won't be able to boot to anything until your OSX is up and Chameleon is installed correctly because it will take over your MBR. So rely on other computer while you're working on this.

    3. OSX boot options is not the same as your BIOS boot options. BIOS options is to choose order of boot devices.
    OSX boot options mean to type in commands for kernel to execute at boot prompt. OSX base on BSD Unix so it's just like the rest of the Unix/Linux family.

    When you boot from the install DVD, at Darwin screen, press F8 for boot prompt, then type in your boot options.

    So for your CPU, try this boot options:

    -x -v cpus=4 busratio=20

    Always boot with -x -v until you're into OSX with all required kexts loaded.
    -x, safe mode, -v for verbose. The last two commands can be mixed in one at a time or using both, although I think you really need cpus=4 for sure.

    Well, give it a try to see what happens and keep me posted.
    Good luck.

    1. Board BIOS, OSX installed and works with SATA in AHCI mode ONLY, windowXP is IDE mode. So for now, to your BIOS, SATA to AHCI, ...

    ACPI enable, if needed to (for easier installation) disable LAN, Audio, disable legacy USB, disable USB keyboard/mouse, HFET enable, S3 power option.
    I have found this in the BIOS setup:
    PHP Code:
    BIOS is found to be running in IDE MODE.
    SETUP option is available to set SATA to AHCI mode
    ...
    ...
    DO 
    you want BIOS to enable this option for you?
    YYesset SATA to AHCI mode for me.
    NNO, do not show this message again.
    Select option... 
    • ok, I could do this, but... would XP boot with theese settings?
    • shoud I disable LAN? <- where is this?
    • shoud I disable AUDIO? <- where is this?
    • should I disable legacy USB? <- where is this?
    • should I disable USB keyboard/mouse? <- where is this?
    • should I enable HFET? <- where is this?
    • should I set S3 power option? <- where is this?


    and most impostant... would I break my XP??? that's not very importanto because I really want to install OsX... but, could I use Ubuntu then? 'cause that's my main OS and i was relying in GRUB to fix my MBR for me (or at least I know what to do in linux)

    ok, now I am more confident, as I stated, OSX is a primary partition, but it has been set as FAT 32, not NTFS os EXT2/3/4, is it OK??
    will Chameleon bootloader deal with this and fix me a boot manager? (dual boot)

    and finally... should I install ubuntu or any other linux (mint) BEFORE trying to install OsX??? or should i continue and then let GRUB or SuperGRUB take care of my MBR (multiple boot manager)?

    thanks and sorry for alll theese questions, I'm a complete noob regarding theese matters.

    Hi,
    I guess you will deal with the problem one at a time.
    At least I got all the cards (most of them) on the table for you, so you be less surprised.
    If you look at other people installations, they break so many things and then come and complain OSX made their windows non-bootable or disappeared. They complain that OSX bootloader doesn't function as advertise (they put it in logical unit), and so on.
    So, yes your XP won't work with SATA in AHCI. I know Vista and 7 support that mode, but turn off by default, so still have to repair after OSX so they can work in AHCI together.
    WinXP a bit too old and may not have that feature. Need to search to see if it is possible for it to run in AHCI. If not then you just have to go to your BIOS and change it to switch between OS just like others that reported their cases. But trust me, my computer run XP as well, I like it better than vista and 7. Your unbutu is actually a modern OS so it know how to deal with that AHCI.
    At least I was correct about that AHCI mode needed to be set, your OSX won't start without it. So just change it to AHCI and leave the rest of your BIOS there. If you run into problem then will set it up later.
    Your partition is fine, when you get to OSX installer screen, there will be option under disk utility to reformat it to HFS+journaled.
    So just prepare yourself and try to do the installation. See if you can get to the installer screen, there will have a hardware info tab, and you can look at your hardware and choose options under customization to match your system for chipsets driver, system fixed/patches and other driver. Your video may cause some problem so unless there really driver for it at that screen, don't select any video driver, the VESA mode could take your all the way into OSX if your install successfully done. Once in there then we will find driver for it. Keep your selection at minimal so you won't have driver conflict. The objective is to get into OSX first, then fixing everything else later, rather than got stuck in between with drivers and other issues.

    So, I guess that you will be prepared to maybe do the installation more than once. So just keep track of what you're doing/selecting for further reference.
    If you're comfortable with Linux than this won't be that hard.
    You can start the installation and work your way into it.
    Post your error message if running into kernel panic (KP).
    Good luck.
