    Hej!
    I just installed lawlessppc on this configuration (see at the bottom) which is very close to yours. There are still some bugs but I finally made it after trying to installe Hazard 10.6.2 and ideneb 10.5.6, and ideneb 10.5.8.
    I used a usb key on which I put the lawlessppc 10.5.4 iso and then I run the The EP45UD3P Snow Leopard install package (HERE on this page you will find the link to download Install Snow Leopard on Your Hackintosh PC, No Hacking Required - Hackintosh - Lifehacker) on the usb key. Afterwards, I deleted the DSDT.aml file that is in the extra folder on the usb key, otherwise gives me an error because it’s not for my motherboard.
    The only thing I checked for the installation is the third chipset named “via and sb 600” because it’s the closest one to the Southbridge chipset my motherboard has. Indeed, this chipset is for 790 motherboards. If I didn’t use this one I had a “Waiting for root device” error when trying to boot into os X.
    In the bios I used Ide instead of setting to AHCI because it worked too.
    As the GA-890GPA-UD3H has sata 3, I had to test many times on which sata to connect the HDD. Whether the sata 2 or 3. Finally I connected it on the sata 2 and put it into IDE after trying ahci as well.

    When I corrected the “waiting for root device” error, I finally got to the “before you begin” part!! I was so glad I was nearly there!!
    But I had one last problem: I had the account creation loop error… every time I was on the transfer from another mac it would got back to before you begin page !!
    But I found this:
    Restarting Installation at "Do You Already Own a Mac" - InfiniteMac OSx86 Community

    I booted in verbose (-v), safe mode (-x) and single mode (-s)
    And I typed the command lines
    /sbin/mount -uw /

    passwd root

    touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone

    reboot

    it creates an admin account that you will use to connect with.

    On this website I also found how to set the graphic resolution when booting:
    "Graphics Mode"="1600x1200x32"
    that’s what I can get with the 4290 chipset !!! I tried better but it’s the max. You can try, if it doesn’t work it will give you the max it can do !!
    So I can have this resolution even if I don’t have a driver but I have to enter it at boot every time…

    I don’t have the audio nor the internet.
    I tried to fix the about this mac with the topOSX86 tool
    That you can find on this page:
    Make Bootable Mac OSX86 USB Stick Installer Yourself. | OSX86
    The about this mac tells me now that I have a phenom ii x4 955
    My motherboard is the GA-890GPA-UD3H
    That I have 4g of ram but in more info it tells me that I have only 1 core and that my ram is only 200mhz instead of 1333mhz.

    That’s about it. There are still things to fix… But it is possible to install leopard. The next step is snow leopard !!!


    Motherboard: GA-890GPA-UD3H
    Cpu: phenom ii x4 955 BE
    Ram: 4GB DDR3 1333
    Graphical chipset ati 4290
    Sata hdd
    Sata dvd driver

    Hej!
    I watched the video on you tube. It shows that when you boot on the hazard cd, and after you typing in the –v (verbose mode) flag, it starts to boot, writes a few lines and then the system reboots.
    I had this for the hazard distro and IDeneb v1.6 10.5.8. On the other hand, for iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6, I was able to install but not to boot in os X. I tried many times with lots of different combination of things to choose in the installer but I did not make it. That’s why I tried the lawlessppc 10.5.4 amd phenom.

    You can burn the iDeneb v1.6 10.5.8 to a DVD and try. Maybe it will work for you. If you are able to launch the installation that’s already a big step.

    To install 10.6 (snow leopard), I’ve seen that apparently it is easier when you already have 10.5 installed. That’s why I first installed leopard. The lawlessppc has less fixes and drivers than the iDeneb v1.6 but it worked.

    You can try to install iDeneb v1.6. Then you can report what happens. Good luck.

    Hi,
    You got a KP without going too far.
    Have you set your BIOS?
    Try with boot options

    -x -v cpus=4


    If needed to then add busratio=17 , and/or cpus=1

    Cheers,

    Default leopard with lawlessppc on GA-GPA-UD3H and phenom ii x4 955 be

    Hej!
    I tried to install snow leopard with this method:
    Install Snow Leopard 10.6 on AMD PC Hackintosh | OSX86
    This method consists in installing snow leopard using an existing partition of leopard.
    But everytime I launch the installation from the leopard partition I get a kernel panic after 10 minutes of installation on a partition I created for Snow leopard. I used retail dvds of snow leopard and then patched versions like hazard and snow leo. The snow leo installed entirely but it reboots when I try to boot in snow leopard. On the other hand, hazard was giving me a kernel panic too so I tried to install part by part. With the method from the site, you open the contents of the .iso to have access to all the .pkg. So I double clicked on the .pkg that I thought I would need for snow leopard (the system, the kernel, the amd patch, the audio driver azalia, network realtekr1000, etc…) but I get stuck at the very common error of acpi_smc_platform_plugin :… timed out. I did not find a solution yet. I don’t have the possibility to put acpi 2.0 in the bios because there is either s1 or s3 modes and that’s all. Nothing else on acpi compared to the asus p5q pro where there was acpi 2.0 to enable or disable. I tried ahci or ide but it does not make any difference.

    I didn’t try yet to put the hdd in the sata 3 sockets. For the installation of leopard, I needed to put the dvd player in sata3 and native ide while the hdd was in sata 2. The mode did not matter. If I don’t do that I get kernel panics when installing. After installation, I take back the dvd player and put it in sata2 because it is not recognize in leopard otherwise.

    I have the sound (it’s azalia driver in lawlessppc or ideneb 1.6), the Ethernet (there is a realtekr1000.kext for leopard), activity monitor shows the activity of 4 cores and with I deneb 1.6 contents opened directly in leopard, I installed the smbios 1333 fix pkg to get my ram recognized. I still had to write at boot “Graphics Mode”=”1680x1050x32” but know I bought a 4870 1 GB there are drivers for and it works great!!
    Here is the method I used: InsanelyMac Forum > A Simple Guide to the 4830/4850/4870/4870x2/4890 with the 4800 package driver then the patched buffers package and then the opengl 10.5.7 to replace because otherwise it does not work. I can play games and dvds and stuff.

    With the 4290 as there was no driver (i.e. no kext) I was surprised when I tried to read a dvd, dvd player told me that there is no video source found. I tried to modify some kexts to have the chipset recognized but I did not find how to correctly do it yet…

    I have with Leopard 10.5.4 running smoothly from lawlessppc distro on my ga-890gpa-ud3h, my phenom || 955 BE, DDR3 1333 and my 4870 1GB.

    Hej!
    I had kernel panics when I installed but some could be resolved by changing the hdd and dvd drive on sata 3 or gsata (it’s the sata 2 for the ga-890gpa-ud3h). For the installation of leopard with lawlessppc, I needed to put the dvd player in sata3 and native ide while the hdd was in sata 2. The mode did not matter. If I don’t do that I get kernel panics when installing. After installation, I take back the dvd player and put it in sata2 because it is not recognize in leopard otherwise.
    If you haven’t tried it yet, plug your sata cables in another plug. Try different ways. You see for me it was dvd in sata 3 mode ide and hdd in sata 2 (or gsata which is the term used in the bios) and the mode didn’t matter.
    To change the mode in the bios
    (Here is an image of what it looks like http://images.tweaktown.com/content/3/1/3187_14.jpg), you have to hit the delete button when you start your computer. Go into integrated peripherals and then you can change the mode of “on chip sata type (which are port 0 to 3 and are sata 3)”, sata port 4/5 (sata 3) and gsata (sata 2). Good luck!

    Hej!
    I have seen that you have a intel core 2 duo, ddr2 and nvidia geforce 7300le or ati x1300 pro in the dell inspiron 530. With an intel configuration you can try every distro you want. Ideneb, Iaktos, lawlessppc and many others for leopard and if you want you can try installing snow leopard. You can have a look on this page to get more ideas of what distro to take OSx86. and look on the web and try!
    Good luck.
