pre-install question - compatibility check, please?
I'm new to this hackintosh stuff, and I was wondering if an expert could lead me to a distribution I could install.
My system is:
GIGABYTE 1156 GA-P55A-UD4
INTEL Core i5 750 2.66Ghz 8MB
ATI HD5870 XFX 1GB XT GDDR5 2xDVI/HDMI/DP
I'm not hiding the fact that I'm coming from several failures: iAKtOS.S3_v2 rebooted the system during the verbose (-v -x / cpus=1) install. Same story with Snow OSX 10.6 432 GM v 3.5 ( I barely know what all these numbers are meant to )
So, if at anyone, just looking at my specs, ring any bells, please let me know
your specs should works. just get a retail version and use iBoot + MultiBeast method for installation.
Motherboard : GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
CPU : Intel® Core™2 Duo E7400 Wolfdale (3M Cache, 2.80 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)
RAM : 2×1GB Corsair Value Select PC2-5300 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM
GFX : Asus EN9400GT SILENT/DI/512MD2
Sound : ALC889A
Ethernet : Realtek 8111C Gigabit
Bluetooth : TinyTech Bluetooth 2.0 Dongle
Wireless : Asus WL-138g V2 802.11b/g PCI Wireless Adapter Hackintosh Hardware
Should be able to install iAtkos S3 with correct boot options and BIOS setting.
-x -v busratio=? (and cpus=1 or 4 if needed to)
I don't have the busratio number handy, but you could google it easily.
Thanks for the answers guys, I'll make more tries then.
Okay, that's amazing, I managed to install using iATKoS S3 V2. The boot option that allowed me to proceed with the installation are busratio=20 + AHCI + HPET 64bit in the bios.
Fixed a problem, others come out: at first boot OS says it can't find the keyboard. That's odd because during the install I was able to type normally to enter the label for the volume partition for example.
The keyboard is a Microsoft (uh oh) Wired 600 USB. I tried to use a PS/2 adapter but same story. The screen says:
"Before to start..."
"No keyboard connected to the computer. Connect the keyboard now."
(in my language)
Before I try another brand (Logitech, lol?) di you have any idea how I could do my USB kb work?
edit: after googling, I tried turning OFF USB Legacy from BIOS, with no luck.
