    Default Dual Boot Windows 7 & iDeneb 1.4

    Hi,

    I would like to know how to install OSX Leopard in my PC, while maintaining my Windows 7 install - I would like to Dual Boot

    I have 3 HD (2x 500GB and 1x 250GB). I am not using tha last one, and so wanted to try to install OSX there.

    I just saw iDeneb's 1.4 release (I could use other releases- tell me if there is a better one), which includes OSX 10.5.6, but I also have the oficial Leopard CD which came with a MacBook.
    Does iDeneb's release contain an option to Dual Boot? My third HD is formatted in NTFS - in what format should I put it, and with what software? Will it recognize all my USB and FireWire ports? Will I be able to upgrade to 10.5.7 and 10.6 when it's release? Can I reformat/reinstall Windows 7 without altering my other OS, and viceversa?

    Is it possible to have a HD (or partition) "shared" between the two OS?

    My Specs (It's a modified Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo P - Desktop):
    MSI MS-7379VP, G31 Intel Chipset mobo (OEM BIOS AMI 9.0 - Can't overclock unless I flash my BIOS)
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.50Ghz (supports SSE/2/3/4.1)
    Asus Nvidia 8800GT Glaciar Edition 1GB GDDR3
    4GB DDR2
    650W PSU
    On-Board Realtek soundcard
    Stock Fans

    Thanks, Hugo

    -------------------------x----------------------------

    EDIT:

    I made it work by disabling USB Legacy Support, and instead of using any of my USB keyborads, I used a PS2 keyboard.
    I installed it on my third drive (E... I formatted, using apropiate format for OSX, selected the drivers which (I think) works for my PC, after 9-10 minutes it says that installation was succesfull, but afterwards when I select E: HD to boot OS the log stops at: ""MAC Framework Succesfully initialized
    using 16384 buffer headers and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers"

    I will try to do what bobburns has posted and will reply if I make it work!

    Thanks, hugo

    Seems to be compatible, please check the dual boot section to know how to dual boot with win7, or google it at this point should be some info about it, prepare yourself and try, report back if you have any problem with the installation

    Default quick and dirty

    Get EasyBCD install it to Windows
    In Widows make a partition where you will put MAC OSx - it should be a primary - 25 Gig or bigger - no format needed right now
    boot the MAC DVD - in disk utility find the partition and format it journaled
    when you come back to the install - it should be a green check to install on
    do a basic install.
    after the install repair the Windows boot partition with the install disk
    go into Windows and add the MAC OS
    boot either
    re-installs form there should leave alone the boot partition

    Your video may be a problem

    Read my standard paste below

    See - "Read first Before Posting" - http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/f181/73003.htm

    Read this all the way through - but . . . you need to Google for your answers and do some research instead of relying on and expecting a spoon fed answer. Every machine is different. Visit the link at the bottom of this post.

    Here is a link to generically what is largely supported in IPC 10.5.6 iPC OSx86 10.5.6 Final PPF5 Complete driver list. | OSX86

    netkas.org does support on some of the newer more esoteric NVidia GPU's

    If it is not there in the list above or - it is not supported at this time - so do not cry you want it to be. do not expect someone here to spoon feed you a fix for free. This is a standard paste I use prefaced with a preamble to the question usually.

    After a successful install, and it does not boot all they way through then f8 at boot to the Darwin prompt, and then . . .

    You need to boot with -s. If it loads that to a command line, you've got likely kext problems. Then try -x -v so you can see where it stops, slows, issues errors or hangs. If you get in that way to a desktop you've got probably video kext problems. These can be LOTS of different problems depending on whose distribution you installed and how old it is. Get the newest one - right now which is 10.5.6. IPC has some issues with laptop keyboards not working after install - IDeneb seems to go better.

    Look for what loads and what does not load

    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. You just scream "please help me". Posting that you think you got it working without understanding what you did does not help either. You might now really have it working as it should be.

    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.

    Usually a Kext is likely probably not loading or blocking something - or the kernel panics. That means dies the horrible crash like a aircraft pilot would it the pilot panic'ed in an emergency situation and did not know what to do.

    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. The kexts ARE the drivers - and sometimes you only need to change or add the vendor and device ID.

    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 - Editpad Lite (only one that will work) and 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. If Windows will not boot use a Vista repair disk or the XP disk to repair the boot sector - then install EasyBCD through Windows and it will see the MAC partition to let you set it up on the boot manager. Google how to get one if you do not have them.

    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.

    You come in single user with the -s command at the prompt. Do what it says to mount the
    volume and then

    You do a "sudo -s" first (no quotes)
    cd /System/Library
    chmod -R 755 Extensions /
    touch Extensions /
    diskutil repairpermissions /

    If you had trouble with the registration looping or other things then . . . after that above of mounting the volume make a password for root by typing

    passwd root

    Then when done type

    touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone

    reboot

    There are other ways to do this and much more 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.

    It works for both CPUs Intel or AMD. IDeneb 10.5.6. might go more successfully.

    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. Remember the kext might be there - but have the wrong vendor and device ID - so it will get passed up.

    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.

    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.

    Thanks for the Easy BCD explanation! I got the Dual Boot loader working... but not OSX. When insterting iDeneb 1.4, I press f8, and put -v; Then it stops saying this:

    Waiting on <dictID="0"><key>IOProviderclass</key><string ID="1">IOResources </string><key>IOResourceMatch>/key><stringID="2"> boot-uuid-media</string></dict>
    Here is a screenshot: http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t...g?t=1246351912

    I searched this problem, but couldn't find any working solution:
    I tried using JaS.OSx86.10.5.4.Client.Server.Intel.SSE2.SSE3 distro... same result

    Tried booting with several commands (-x -v, -f, -s, -x, etc...)... same ending

    Tried disabling USB legacy support in BIOS, but afterwards my 2 keyboards didn't work when boot says "press any key to continue installation or press f8..." and time runs out... and i'm obliged to type a command... I didn't try with PS2 keyboard but I saw that OSX doesn't support them... But in the BIOS and in Windows keyboard and mouse work perfectly

    On another forum, someone said to extract one of the RAM cards so that you will only end up with 2GB.. I did this and boot freezes at another point of the log, saying:

    Extension "com.apple.driver.ApplePCIconfigurator" has immediate dependencies on both com.apple.kernel and com.applekpi components; use only one style

    This message also appeared when I tried before... but it just continued (see image)... but the weird thing is that it only happened once... I reebooted PC, (still with only 2 GB of RAM) and I got up to the first message instead of this one... So I inserted again my 2nd 2GB RAM card

    I searched here for my problem... but didn't find anything which contained "Waiting on <dictID="0"><key>...<stringID="2"> boot-uuid-media</string></dict>"

    On the saw a compatibility list on a wiki for OSX x86 10.5.6. My motherboard doesn't appear, but sever motherboards appear which contain my chipset (Intel G31M) so I thought i'm still might have a chance to install OSX

    Is there a good known solution for this?
    Thanks, Hugo

    Ok,

    I made it work by using iatkos distro!

    installed chameleon bootloader instead than EasyCBD, and modified com.apple.boot.plist on /Extra folder so that automatically it would do CPUS=1

    Thanks, Hugo

    The only issue here is that your using just one core, maybe you will need to MOD your BIOS or just install Retail with DSDT Patch to get all cores working
