Discuss Kalyway and Dell Latitude D630 at the Installation - Hackint0sh.org; I have a brand new XPS M1330 out of the box. I have been playing ...
IOAPIC Problems as well
I have a brand new XPS M1330 out of the box. I have been playing around with the whole Mac on PC for awhile. I had a running IATKOS v10.5.2 on my Acer laptop. I can use the same CD on my M1330 and can get the installer to boot and install but get the flashing cursor on reboot. Since the new 10.5.4 is out I thought I would try to install it and I keep stopping at the IOAPIC stop that others here are having. I tried IATKOS's version of 10.5.4, JaS, and I am going to try this HHHOTTT version I found online that needs a dual layer DVD. I have no tried an external DVD drive to try to boot the image off of. Then again it's weird that the 10.5.2 installer boots fine but none of the 10.5.4 I have tried so far work.

Can post screen of your problem?

Thanks for the reply. I will try to get a screen shot up. I did a -v during the install of iDeneb's 10.5.5 and it stopped at the same place, IOAPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 0:23, while trying to boot up to the installer. I read a lot of reviews maybe the XPS m1330 isn't as good of a machine for the Mac project as I thought?
It takes me some time because my download box is off site on the other side of town. I will try to download the Leo4all version that you recommended. I'm getting a headach from all the different version out there... I wish I could find one that would work!
But I've been trying to research this and research it and no one really says exaclty why the kernal panics at this one error. I've tried everything I could think of in BIOS with disabling all the goodies (Speedstepping, Dynamic acceleration, etc) and the OSX installer doesn't boot past this line.
I'm thinking, sadly, I will try my D630. Or nothing else go back to my Acer which I know loaded the OSX 10.5.2 correctly. I just would love to get one working, rub it in the face of a few Mac people I know at work too... haha
A side note though, I found that with my iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 disc I could actually load my previous install of 10.5.2
When I originally loaded whatever version of 10.5.2, after the install was done and the system rebooted, it sat at a blinking cursor. For the life of me I could not get the thing to boot past that. Setting the Boot flag, trying different ways of installing the OS, anything.
While messing around trying to do a bunch of different switches for the newer Boot loader for the 10.5.5 CD, I started just booting off the CD and hitting F8 repeatedly (kind of like when you boot your computer trying to get into the BIOS setup)... and I would see the Darwin loader screen for a second and then it would start booting. I didn't just shut the computer off because I noticed hard drive activity. BAM, Mac OSX 10.5.2 loaded right up.
Puzzled I kept restarting and trying it. If I did not boot off the CD I got the blinking cursor. If I did not repeatedly hit F8 I could not get the option to get to the 10.5.2 OS.
Now I'm stuck again, I threw out my 10.5.2 disc a few days ago thinking it wasn't working. I tried doing an update just now to 10.5.5 (following instructions online of course to keep my Os working)... and half way through the install it blew up in my face
But maybe some promise for those of you having a problem getting your 10.5.2 to work. I think the only way really to get around this problem is to start with 10.5.2 and then do a combo update to 10.5.5... IF you can get it working.
Will keep you guys posted
Insanity is coming...
Oh and by the here is what I see when I do a -v at the boot prompt for Darwin

Oh and I've read about how sometimes startups are slow, so I've let my system sit at this screen for hours. I'm really getting lost on why this is. BLAH! Currently EVERYTHING in BIOS that I could turn off I have. I've tried running the hard drive in ATA and ACHI support (surrently in ATA). Can't think of anything else to add from what I already have.
Dell XPS m1330 (brand new, bought for this project alone)
2.0GHz Intel Processor
Core 2 Duo supported
(2) 2GB sticks = 4096MB of memory (also tried  1GB sticks to see if it was amount of memory, still same thing)
1390 wireless adapter
57xx Ethernet adapter
(2) USB 2.0 ports
slot load DVD burner (8x)
no cellular card
13.3in TFT screen
I can't think of anything else to add. I'm not sure the exact model of motherboard, but it's whatever the newest Intel one is that Dell is putting out I guess. System was received within the last two weeks of this post date.
And to add again I think I've figured out a way to get my installed 10.5.2 working, which is fine I can always do the upgrade from that to 10.5.5. I don't get though why that will let me boot the installer and install but I can't get much past the Darwin boot on any copy of 10.5.4 or iDeneb's new copy of 10.5.5?????
At this point I'm just trying to put as much info out there as possible to see if someone else might come along and piece things together from different posts and find a solution that they could share with the rest of us.
i've seen people take Honda RSX Type-S motors and put them in Mini Coopers and have bad ass little cars. I know with enough work I can do the same with my XPS to have a Vista and Mac computer all in one
Thanks again for all the help and the help to come!
dell inspiron 640m - le04all v2 10.5.2
hi all, i use dell inspiron 640m with le04all v2 10.5.2.
installation works well, but i think its unstable because :
1. sometimes it can't boot, always restart with the last message something like: unknown sig..., i have to use -s option and run command /sbin... then exit
2. the sound also noisy when i move the cursor with mouse or touchpad while it plays music with itune.
i did a sound driver installation from kaliway 10.5.2 (play thru sigmatel 9200... package), before there was no sound at all, options for output/input was unavailable.
3. the wireless (intel 3945 abg) was not working, i try to instal io80211 package from kaliway 10.5.2, it stay the same
4. everytime i try to eject the dvd, the finder will not responding
5. the last thing is, i feel its unstable because when i do a click, i feel the respon takes longer, like a slow machine when the system get busy. can anyone help me?
LAN, graphic works fine.
bluetooth & firewire seems to work, it's appear in the network, but i haven't try yet.
Thanks for the "good luck" I will need it. Piecing an OS together is what it is, so I know what you mean about taking one piece from one installer and another from another installer. For the XPS m1330 I've found a good reference for drivers from here, which is done by macgirl (who seems to know her stuff)
Fingers crossed as always. But until I get an actual installer to boot I'm dead in the water. I hopefully will get my hands on a copy of Leo4All tomorrow and in the next couple of days get a chance to do the install and test.
First will be getting the OS running. Then after I get a stable OS on 10.5.2, will be the trial of trying to get 10.5.5 working.
*tear* I just saw posts about 10.6, Snow Leopard. And wonder how hard that will be to get working when it's time comes around. Though reports sound like Mac is starting to play with nVidia, so maybe in time nVidia and ATi chipsets will be supported directly by Apple and makes our lives a lot easier
The Leo4All works, as just a standard install for OSX v10.5.2. I was not able to use any of the built in drivers to get any of my hardware working. I did notice off of Macgirl's post here that for Dell laptops that sonotone made an installer to install a lot of the drivers, which you can check out here.
The XPS m1330's are supposed to have a shutdown problem on 10.5.2. But after attempting to install some drivers and a few patches sonotone had in his installer, I was able to reboot and shutdown without a problem. Though I will say that even sonotone says his patches won't fix the 1330's problem.
He even had one patch to let OSX update from the Apple site without a problem, which I don't know if that meant for the OS updates or what. I had some problems installing drivers, but then at the end of the installer there is a message that says "don't forget to reset your permissions".... which I'm still trying to figure out what that means.
All in all Leo4Allv3, which is OSC v10.5.2, installs without a problem. now it's the feat of trying to do the upgrade. So thank you, f41qu3, for your suggestion. It at least is a good working base to start with and ot go from there.
Everyone thank you for the space to let me RANT, I hope I've put some useful info up here and can help others out.
