    Question Help - Install on Samsung R710

    Good afternoon all,

    I seriously love the looks of MAC OS X and want to install it on my Windows laptop as my main and only operating system.

    I have a Samsung R710 laptop and need help with which install method/distro I should use and basically how to do it, I know it can be a dangerous step so im asking before I even attempt it.

    My hardware is listed below, please could someone take the time to advise me the best distro and how to.

    Intel Core 2 Duo T6400
    3GB 1066MHz RAM
    320GB HDD (SATA AHCI)
    Nvidia 9800M Graphics
    Intel Wifi 5100 AGN
    Marvell Yukon LAN
    Realtek HD Audio/NVidia HD audio

    Thanks,

    Default 5100 wifi not going to work, yukon kext likely needs editing

    Visit HCL 10.5.6/Portables - OSx86

    The 5100 wifi is a known non-starter without hope, and the Yukon will kext will likely need to be edited for vendor and device ID

    If the distro you use leaves it out you'll need to add the Yukon text under by adding the complete IONetworking family and edit it

    These "please help me" cries are always funny.

    NO ONE can help you right now. You do not say what is wrong, you do not say what you did that does not work and you offer no clues as to your level of expertise as to EXACTLY where you are stumped.

    If you go to a Medical Doctor and just scream "please help me" and will give no symptoms or clues as to what is going on - even a Doctor cannot help you but begin guessing - and guess what - they get paid to do so - no one here is being paid by you, and still the doctor could end up killing you rather than saving you because you did not tell a critic piece of information - like a severe allergy or something like that which could kill you in his efforts to help you. Computers - especially the OS's of computers are NO DIFFERENT.

    You do not say what is going on. No one is a mind reader here and were not sitting in front of your machine.

    A Kext is likely probably not loading or blocking something

    The kexts are vendor and device ID specific - so if the kext does not have the right vendor and model ID referenced in the kext file - it will fail - or pass up the device anyway.

    You have to figure this out yourself - it is YOUR machine. They are all different as to what is in the unit from the manufacturer, and even if using common device components - the vendor and device ID may be different that what the kext might have in it.

    If you have Windows still on the same machine - and it is working - you can do kext editing from inside windows by installing some helper tools to look into the HPS drive. Use Windows Text Editor Download and Download Ext2Fsd 0.46 - An open source Ext2 File System Driver for Windows - Softpedia and Catacombae - HFSExplorer (HFS Explorer) to see and get at the Mac files in Windows. OR You can BUY Macdrive. If you are having dual boot problems try installing EasyBCD from inside Windows to boot between the two. Its free.

    This above will only work if you have been smart enough to do a dual boot machine where Windows is on another partition or permanent drive in the same computer.

    You can see the vendor and device ID in Windows, and the kext will have a name and you can find the vendor and device ID in the text of the kext info.plist. You can edit this from the windows side with the editor above - and use no other - they will not work.

    After you get in through safe mode, you can run "diskutils repairpermissions /" (without the quotes) and to fix the changes you made from the Windows side

    There are ways to do this from the -s boot option (single user mode) but it is really getting UNIX specific as to the commands, and if you are there and know nothing anyway - you should probably pay someone, buy a real MAC or just give up - OR get ready for a real extensive learning curve and research on the web.

    You need to do some research on how the Mac OS works. Match your kext families with the missing parts of the OS not loading - change the vendor and device ID's and one at a time - you'll get them working and the boot errors will go away.

    If you have/had IPC 10.5.6 ppf4 or ppf5 you would likely have most of the kexts - but they might not have the right vendor ID and device ID for the unit you are trying to install on.

    Once installed, you need to boot in safe mode from the Darwin prompt with the -x option. Use -v also so you can see what it is loading and if it does stop in safe mode and where. Then you can try -v -f on another boot to see if it will make it all the way

    The MacOS is at it's core - UNIX - you cannot just lump a question in something and throw it here that is non-descriptive as to tell anyone not at your PC what is TRULY going on, even though I am a UNIX engineer.

    No one can help you if they cannot tell what is really going on - and if you are not ready to learn some UNIX - give up now.

    If you install the right kexts (Kernel EXTensionS) with the right vendor id's applicable the system will load them as it finds the hardware during the boot process.

    Read the clues of the boot process yourself and do some research as to what they mean and then if you have a specific question you cannot find on the Internet or in the forums - that someone can identify - post that.

    Of course you can always BUY a real MAC, and then holler "please help me" all you want to Apple Computer Support, and at some point they will tell you the same thing.

    Firstly, I would appeciate not being treated like an idiot, if you didnt have something meaningful and useful to say then you should not have said it.

    In terms of my technical ability, I am a Windows Technical Support Engineer so rated quite highly, just not with Unix.

    And in terms of my problem, I DONT HAVE A PROBLEM.....yet. I was mearly asking the question to be pointed in the right direction.

    Anyone with any other usful answers, feel free to respond.

    Thanks in advance.

    On my Samsung R710

    iATKOS v7 10.5.7 will install, but randomly crashes on boot
    eg. kernel Voodoo 9.7.0 + VoodooHDA = crash
    + some other hard to catch patterns

    Chipset - SATA/IDE -> AHCI (also installed SpeedStep driver)
    nVIDIA - Natit: QE/CI - Yes
    Keyboard/TouchPad - Voodoo PS/2 driver with trackpad plugin
    Sound - VoodooHDA (may cause crashes on boot)
    Ethernet driver Network - Marvell Yukon 88E8055 - Kexts.com
    WiFi driver: pray & donate Issue 85 - iwidarwin - Intel WIFI Link 5100 - Project Hosting on Google Code
    USB/Camera works fine
    Bluetooth was working but disappeared (probably works with Voodoo kernel 9.5.0)

    Update to 10.5.8

    1. Use software update from Apple for apps except for the 10.5.8 update itself
    2. Use iDeneb.Delta.Upgrade.v1058 KIT
    3. Remove extension ApplePS2Controller.kext (use one from 10.5.7: VoodooPS2Controller.kext - they won't work together)
    4. Install seatbelt fix for your kernel: *Updated 08/09* DMG mounting issues & Seatbelt.kext (New Versions, Files included) - InfiniteMac OSx86 Community (or some DMG will cause kernel panic)

    Fix Audio Input on ALC262 (Realtek HDA)

    1. Remove VoodooHDA.kext
    2. Install ALCInject.kext & AppleHDA.kext from ALC262 driver with headphone speaker and mic - InsanelyMac Forum
    3. Install Sound Source tool (to switch output)
