    Thumbs up [HowTo] P5N-E SLI nForce 650i leopard Complete Guide by KellyKelly

    You will need:

    * iATKOS V1.0i R2
    * Windows XP/Vista
    * EasyBCD [For Dual-Booting]


    1. Download the iATKOS v1.0i R2 from TPB
    2. Burn the ATKOS v1.0i R2 to a DVD+/-R at 4X speed (DO NOT USE DVD+/-RW OTHERWISE YOU'LL SCREW UP)
    3. Open diskpart and type the following:
    list disk
    select disk x [x is the number of the disk where you want to install your leopard on it]
    list partition [Now diskpart should tell you there's no partition on the disk, if it show up a partition go ahead and type delete partition]
    create partition primary id=af
    4. Slide in your iATKOS V1.0i R2 DVD and reboot the computer
    5. Go into BIOS and set these options:

    * HPET: Enabled
    * Jmicron SATA Controller: Disable
    * Onboard IEEE1394: Disable [you can enable it after the installation]

    6. Boot from the DVD. Press F8 when it asks you and enter the options "-v" [If it doesn't load/freeze/kernel panic boot with "-v -f cpus=1"]
    7. When it is loaded, open Disk Utility from the Utilities menu
    8. Select your hard drive and click on partition
    9. On Volume Schme select 1 partition and enter your desire name,
    10. On format select as MAC OS X Extended (Journaled)
    11. On options select as Master Boot Record
    12. Create the partition
    13. Quit Disk Utility
    14. Go to the next step and click customize

    * Bootloaders:
    If you have a Core 2 CPU, select "EFI Bootloader" [it tend to be more stable with core 2 CPU]
    otherwise select "Darwin X86 Bootloader"

    * Patch:
    Select "SEE2 SEE3 Kernel" If you don't have a Core 2 CPU
    Select "Remove CPUPowerManagementDriver"
    Select "Remove Thermal kexts"

    Select "Netkas AppleSMBIOS.kext"
    Select the other drivers that applies to you

    *For 8800 Series Users:
    Select the AMD/nForce fix driver
    Select the NVInject driver that applies to you

    15. Once you're done click install
    16. Go ahead and skip DVD verification if you want [Installation might take from 30min to 1 hour, so relax, get a cup of coffee]
    17. When the installation is done reboot your computer


    * Boot in to XP/Vista
    * Download EasyBCD 1.7.1
    * Install and open the program
    * On the Add/Remove Entries click on Mac OS X and select x86
    * Enter the name you want example "Mac OS X Leopard"
    * Click add entry
    * Reboot your computer

    18. Press F8 when it ask you and boot with "-v"
    19. If you get kernel panic/freezes boot with "-v -f cpus=1"
    20. After the system has loaded, you will see a Leopard Welcome Video if you have selected the appropriate video driver.
    21. Enter informations now have a working Leopard Desktop!!!

    But wait not yet, you might notice the performance is very slow, because you did not enable UDMA yet.

    Download the NForceATA Driver to your desktop [Thanks to medevil]
    Open terminal and type the following:
    sudo -s
    cp -R ~/desktop/AppleNForceATA.kext /system/library/extensions/
    chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions/AppleNForceATA.kext
    chown -R root:wheel /system/library/extensions/AppleNForceATA.kext
    rm -f /system/library/extensions.*
    diskutil repairpermissions / (might take a while, be patient)
    To get Line In to work:
    you need the ALC883 8.8.1 Audio patch [Thanks to Skippy] (I know is for kernel 8.8.1 but work great under leopard without any problem)
    To install, click on the installer, and install it. [DO NOT CHOOSE 3port_digital, LEAVE IT AS 3port OR IT WILL CRASH YOUR SYSTEM!]
    Now reboot your leopard
    You should notice your leopard load faster, higher performance! Plus your Line-In is working now!

    --FOR CPUS=1 ISSUE--
    this is for users that can't boot with dual-core/quad-core

    NON-EFI Users:
    download the P5N-E SLI Fix Patch
    Drag both "mach_kernel" and IOHDIXController.kext to the desktop

    Open Terminal and type:
    sudo -s
    cp -R ~/desktop/mach_kernel /mach_kernel
    cp -R ~/desktop/IOHDIXController.kext /system/library/extensions/
    chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions/IOHDIXController.kext
    chown -R root:wheel /system/library/extensions/IOHDIXController.kext
    rm -f /system/library/extensions.*
    diskutil repairpermissions / (might take a while, be patient)
    sudo reboot
    EFI Users:
    download the 10.5.1 EFI Nforce Kernel and drag mach_kernel to the desktop

    Open Terminal and type:
    sudo -s
    cp -R ~/desktop/mach_kernel /mach_kernel
    diskutil repairpermissions / (might take a while, be patient)
    sudo reboot

    How to easily replace your Leopard kernel from Windows [Thanks to revolutionbr]
    1- Get MediaFour MacDrive 7, it's a program that allows Windows to recognize and navigate through HFS+ partitions. This makes really easy to backup kexts, kernel and any other file from your leopard installation, even if it's broken.
    2- Open your Leopard drive and right on the root, you'll find mach_kernel, which is your kernel file. Backup the file anywhere you want (it's okay to backup it on a windows partition though) and then overwrite it with your new kernel file.
    3- Reboot and enter in Leopard using -v -f flag.
    4- When back in Leo, enter the terminal app and enter the following:
    sudo -s
    (enter your password)
    diskutil repairpermissions /

    5- Wait for reboot and enjoy your just patched OSX.

    If you have any kernel panic or booting problem, just get back to windows and slip back your old kernel file.

    This time, boot with -v -f (no more cpus=1! And next time you can boot without kernel flag!)
    Now both of your core works! And If you run some 3D Apps such as StuntMANIA!Pro Racing game, you'll notice increase in framerate.

    Instant Loop Problem
    If you tried to boot your leopard but it just keep restart, here's the solution:

    Slide yout iATKOS DVD back in [Don't forget to use "cpus=1" if you need to!]

    when is loaded click next and click customize

    uncheck everything except "SSE2 SSE3 Kernel"

    Install it


    Now you should be able to boot into your leopard [[Don't forget to use "cpus=1" if you need to!]

    USB Flash Drive Problem:
    If you can't mount your USB Flash Drive, follow the steps below:

    Download the USB Fix (Thanks to TheTimester)

    Extract it to the desktop

    Drag both System.kext and IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext to /system/library/extension

    replace it and when ask for password type so

    open disk utility and repair permission


    Now your USB Flash Drive should be able to mount. :hack:

    Coming back to the Hackint0sh scene after a few years away. Previously had Kalyway 10.5.2 running great on an MSI Neo2 FR.

    I have acquired a PC and I would like to run OSX 86 on it. The PC specifications are:

    Asus P5N-E SLI rev 1.01G running the latest 1406 bios. This motherboard has a nVidia nForce 650i SLI chipset
    Intel Core 2 Quad 6600 CPU
    2Gb Giel RAM
    500Gb SATA HDD
    250Gb SATA HDD
    IDE DVD Writer

    I have tried a few distros without success. Then while goggling I found this thread for installation on my motherboard. I could not find the iATKOS version specified above but did find iATKOS v7.

    When I try to install this version everything seems to proceed OK until the first re-boot after installation when I am shown this screen. When I re-boot the process repeats.

    I then re-boot and at the Darwin prompt press f8 and enter -v -f cpus=1 I then get the following screen and the process stops.

    I have tried to install with as little as possible selected but always end up the same.

    Does anyone know if the above guide has been updated for use with iATKOS v7 or does anyone know of an alternate that will run on my motherboard?
