    Default Kalyway 10.5.2 Post Installation Troubles

    So I've been trying to install OSX Leopard on a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 14 laptop...I've really had to do everything on my own, which is fine...I enjoy learning. But now I have an issue that has MANY MANY solutions and I am not sure what specifically to do.

    I got Kalyway to install, and I can start my first reboot but what occurs is that I have NO Keyboard input.

    My trackpad / tracknav work 100%, but I cannot finish my OSX installation since it says I need a keyboard plugged in.

    Input works fine in the Darwin loader, but when in the actual OSX interface on the DVD as well as the first boot screen, keyboard does not work!

    Here is a link to a post over at InsanelyMac...it has EVERYTHING regards to my progress and steps I had taken.

    Lenovo Thinkpad Edge - InsanelyMac Forum

    This is confusing to me because I don't know what to do since it's a laptop and not a Hackintosh...therefore no PS/2 ports. And most people's complaints are keyboard input / trackpad failures after OSX actually loads.

    I cannot even get past the first boot where I can setup OSX and have the OSX Welcome video play...since the aforementioned keyboard issue.

    Ideas?

    It seems your keyboard issue may be hardware/driver related.
    Can you plug in an USB keyboard to finish the installation?
    VoodooPS2 kexts could fix it, but there are several versions and you may need to try them out.

    Yes I can get a USB keyboard and I did just that...

    I plugged it in, finished my install as to see what else is wrong / right.

    No audio, no wireless (which is to be expected) as well as no adjustable brightness / function hot keys.

    The ones i really care about are volume +/- and brightness +/-

    I should note my chipset is an Intel based one, including my wireless card.

    Its an Intel Wifi 1000 (not the 5100 which so many users are affected by) and the Graphics card an Intel HD 55M



    So what is recommended for Kexts?
    I have a 64-BIT Processor, and I did Kalyway 10.5.2, but I want to get Snow Leopard on if at all possible.
    Rather than shoot myself in the foot and go on my own, what are basically the next steps?

    So I loaded the Voodoo PS2 controller kext as well as Sidescroll kext and they worked fine I booted etc, etc.

    THEN I loaded Voodoo HDA open source and now the trackpad doesnt work >.<

    UPDATE...

    My new issue, I loaded up a Snow Leopard distro, using a flash drive boot method with EP45UD3P_Snow_Leopard scripts ran through Terminal.

    ACPI mode is set, it boots from the USB HDD since it was partitioned as such, GUID etc. But upon loading SL it brings up a gray Apple loader screen and instantly boots.

    On the upper left corner I can see that Darwin x86 is running and once it hits the second line of script it restarts.

    -.-;

    And since I can't F8 or enter in Verbose because of the upgrade method...I'm at a loss as to WHAT is causing the crash.

    I have heard processors will do this from time to time, but mine is an Intel Core i3 M320.

    My graphics as mentioned are also Intel based, a step above the HD4500. (HD55)

    ughhhhhhh

    That BootUSB may work after lots of tweaking, as your chipsets is not the same series. It would be a long road.
    You could be better with distro releases, unless you want to use retail DVD.

    Okay, what do you recommend? I have the retail disk itself (SL upgrade)

    If you want retail DVD then it would need appropriate boot CD to start the installation.

    I did that and I got 10.6.x on it, but always from the boot loader.

    (iboot supported + multi beast)

    so I tried 10.6.4 and 10.6.3 combo packs and both Kernel panic'd and forced me to shutdown...which then the Snow Leopard install wouldn't boot from the CD so I had to start from square 1.

    Then I tried 10.6.2 which worked, I ran multi beast both WITH supported CPU checked off and Unsupported checked off...when I restart it says the image has been hibernating for xxx seconds, etc, and restarts after loading a gray apple screen for a moment.

    If I have to stay with 10.6.x thats fine, but I still want to be able to boot SL from square 1, not requiring the boot disk.

    So Im wondering if its even worth my time to run multibeast because I'm unsure if its the updates or multibeast causing this issue...
