    Default After days trying Ill ask for help

    Hello all,
    After days of reading through this and several other forums and sites I thought I could do a vanilla install of osx.
    I get nowhere with the 132 bootloader. It just tells me the boot failed and "image checksum error, sorry".
    WIth the boot kabyl-bumy file i do the whole -v at the darwin prompt, select my hard drive and it continues to just load windows. It does not load the cd. What am i doing wrong or where is the beginners section to installing these discs because I feel like these step by step instructions either skip over a bunch of assumed knowledge or they just don't work with my computer.
    I thought I was fairly computer savvy building my own pcs but that seems like building a lego car compared to this. My system is a
    Intel DX58so MB
    I7 940
    3 1tb wd drives
    6GB DDR3 Ram

    thanks for your time

    hi,

    image checksum means bad file or cd is corrupted while burning.

    read again the osx wiki and the tips.
    you only select the hard drive in boot 132 after you have installed leopard (something like nt boot loader) but it has the added advantage of booting from cd.

    once at the drive selection screen, press f8 or esc many times until you see the bootloader (for my case it was "ef"). it will say "press any key to load from CD. at that point do not do anything. Switch the boot132 cd to the DVD, wait until the dvd drive light stops flashing.only then press enter. if all goes well, you should be loading the dvd.

    if not, you may need to remedy the problem using one or more of the following -> customising boot132 by adding kext etc(use a mac or a vmware image to do this)/ install modified bios (if ur having acpi issue) or even using a usb or sata dvd (mac hates legacy devices)

    many things can go wrong so be prepared.

    Thanks. I tried a second disc and still got the same error. I tried hitting f8 and escape and they did nothing except beep at me. Maybe its cause their dvds and not cds?
    I've seen the adding ktext for people who can at least boot into mac os but not for a bootloader. Where does one find a customized ktext? Is that customized for the mb? Everything I read seems to read like its all assumed knowledge. Theres no for dummies guide yet I guess. I thought i saw people say its possible to do this vanilla install with this mb.

    hi,
    im assuming ur using a good error free boot 132 disc.

    since you mentioned you are using a vanilla motherboard, most likely kabyl's disc will work.

    just like any boot 132 disc, once at the prompt, you need to press esc many times. not once. you should see "press any key to load from dvd" + the drive ur booting from.

    you only select your hard drive after you installed OSX.

    u have to search for the kext if you need to customise your cd. there are many floating around. some are already included in the boot 132 cd. it should not be too hard to find

    customised means kext that are built to allow non-mac hardware to function properly under osx. you have to search more. everything is available

    The 132 i continue to get the mgr error but I guess that's cause its looking for mac os on a drive and it isn't there?

    I tried booting the disc with a new kabyl.iso disc. Just like the last one i burned, a error message goes by really quick then it loads me to the darwin -v thing. The error message goes by so fast I can't read it all but the start of it is system config ...... /com.appl.boot.... Cant get the whole thing. It seems to be looking for a file that its missing. The word kernal goes by with no problem.

    Really appreciate you trying to help. I have so much other work to do but I refuse to give up on this cause i feel like im starting to learn the language

    The entire message reads:

    Kernal: /boot
    loading /boot..
    module: /initrd.img
    loading /initrd.ing...............
    ......
    Booting: MBI_0x00010198, entry=0x00120288
    Multiboot info @ox8000000
    Loaded by COM32 Multiboot loader v0.2
    Boot device 0x90

    then the screen clears and quickly reads:

    system config file '/com.apple.boot.s/library/preferences/systemconfiguration/com.apple.boot.plist' not found

    this goes by quick before taking me to the darwin promt. ANy idea what it means?

    Not all systems suppport boot-123 or similar methods.
    Just try some other distros like iAtkos, Leo4all, JaS, Kalyway etc etc

    Default successful osx86 install on Intel DX58SO Motherboard

    Hey whats up I recently just built a Hackintosh with these specs.
    Intel DX58SO MB
    EVGA geforce 9800 GT
    Intel I7 920 CPU
    6GB of DDR3 OCZ 1600mhz ram

    alright getting osx86 on this was a pain and took a while to figure it out but I def. got it and running stable at 3.5ghz and this bad boy flies!!!

    I used iAtkos 10.5.5 to install, with other osx86 installations "iPC 10.5.6 PPF5, Kalaway 10.5.2, and XxX" I would get to where the Darwin should boot up to install osx and then it would flash the apple logo and restart, but with iAtkos it booted up and I was able to continue installing.

    I used these settings for install

    Chameleon Boot Loader (uncheck PC EFI V9)
    Apple Decrypt
    DSMos
    SMBIOS-EFI
    SMBIOS-Enabler
    AppleSMBIOS-28
    9.5.0 FASSL Kernel
    X86 ACPI
    DISABLER.KEXT
    Graphics Update
    NVKush
    Intel SATA
    Intel AHCI Sata


    Once everything was good and I could boot into osx I found that my sound didn't work and my ethernet controller wasn't working either. so I downloaded these 2 kext

    Intel82566MM.kext <-----ethernet
    VoodooHDA.kext <-----sound

    once installed everything is working propa! only issue is that I have to have the osx86 install disk in for it to boot up but other than that it boots quickly on every boot and renders like a mad man

    I hope this helped some people out there.

    i tried to do as you say but when I get the first screen and it asks me to press enter to boot or to write -v for the diagnostic it doesn't get my inputs... may be because i am using a wireless keyboard?

    Edit: I had the same stoopid error with iPC... then the trouble should certainly be Chameleon 1.0.11 that doesn't like my inputs.

    Pls help.
