    Question iDeneb v1.4 Cant boot after install on Asus F8va... HELP!!

    Hi,

    Ive been trying to get leopard on my Asus F8va for 2 weeks now but to no avail.
    Ive tried iAtkos v1.0i, iAtkos v5.0i, Kalyway 10.5.2 & iDeneb v1.4.

    Kalyway & iAtkos v1.0i
    doesnt even boot into the installation even with
    -v,-x,-f, or cpus=1

    iAtkos v5.0i
    able to go into the install but the install fails with the message
    "unable to validate contents of the 10.5.5.intel package"

    iDeneb v1.4i
    This seems to be the most successful as I am able to
    get into the install without any flags.. I am also able to complete
    the installation but after the install, i cant boot into OSX, it
    gets stuck on the white apple logo on restart and it doesnt have
    the circle loading thingy.
    while reading the other forums, i find that perhaps my customize might be wrong
    so i played around with it but still get the same problem.
    Does anyone have any idea what custom settings i should use?

    Here are my specs for the Asus F8va laptop:

    processor:Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 @2.53ghz
    chipset:Mobile Intel PM45 Express Chipset +ICH9M
    primary OS: Vista business 64bit
    ram:4GB DDR2 800 MHz SDRAM
    graphics: ATI Mobility™ Radeon® HD 3650, External 1024MB VRAM

    HD: SATA 320GB,5400rpm
    Optical drive: Optiarc BDROM, DVD Super Multi Double Layer
    Modem/Network Card: Integrated Intel® High Definition Audio chip ( Azalia) compliant MDC fax/modem and 10/100/1000 Base T
    Built-in Bluetooth™ V2.1+EDR (optional)
    Intel® WiMAX/WiFi Link 5100

    I have the same laptop. And think I tried all builds in existence last year, but none of them worked. iDeneb was the most promising one, but I got the same error as you did.

    There are numerous posts like this one on the internet, but nobody have succeeded, as far as I know. Obviously, Leopard won't install on F8Va without patched BIOS. But I haven't seen a patch anywhere either.

    Hey Coxer!
    thanks for the info... anyway.. i found this from another forum
    and it works.. but the catch is u need the dvd to boot into it:

    at the start up, press f8 and type this:

    "mach_kernel rd=disk0s2(mypartition..could be diff for u) -v -f"

    quite a chore but at least it works!!

    cheers

    Default You have not fixed it

    Your fix is that you are booting the mach kernel from the CD.

    All your problems are basically still there I bet.

    You do not say what you have discovered - because you never booted into verbose mode or single user mode.

    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.

    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".

    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.

    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 Download and Download 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 /

    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.

    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.

    Hi Bobburns,

    My apologies for not being specific. Let me try again
    My Current System Setup
    -Vista 64 & Mac OSx86 iDeneb 10.5.6 dual boot
    I can boot both into vista and OSX but i need my iDeneb dvd to boot into it

    What works/doesnt work for my MAC OSX
    Ethernet: works, I have agere hd modem but i installed some RTL kext from the iDeneb
    installer and it seems to work somehow although its a different driver.
    Wireless:doesnt work. Cant seem to find the intel widi link5100 kext
    sound: i have Realtek HD audio with vendor id: 10ec and dev id:0662. I installed
    ALC662 during the iDeneb installation but the sound still doesnt work.
    USB:works
    Graphic: Shows as ATI 256mb when mine is ATI 1024mb. i think
    this may be due to wrond device id? but im not too sure.

    Others
    I shall try booting into Single user and safe mode and post the results...

    cheers!
