On humble, bended knee, could somebody *please* help a noob out? :)
Hi Hackint0sh community
I have been trying to get a working install of Mac OSX on my machine for so long now, and I have just about given up. I have tried Kalyway, and had it 'kind of' working - i.e. booted and worked but no audio and no QE / resolution options for video, plus it wouldn't boot without the install DVD. Then I read about Boot 132 and this sounds ideal as I have a genuine Leopard install disc, but I simply do not know what I'm doing with regards to creating / finding a Boot 132 flavour that will work for me. This is the machine I have:
HP Pavilion a1320a
Motherboard: ECS RC410-M
CPU: Pentium4 517 (P) HT 2.93 GHz, 533 MHz front side bus, Socket 775
Chipset: ATI Radeon Xpress 200 for Intel Processors
Video: Nvidia 7600 GS 256MB
HD: 160GB SATA internal but want to install to a new 1TB External USB drive I bought especially for this purpose
DVD Drive: IDE
When I try the 'original ISO with project kexts' from here, the grey apple boot screen comes up, and the spinning wheel starts but just spins forever. If I use the -v command, I get screens of text for about 30 seconds, then the screen just goes completely black and it happens so fast that I can't see what the last line says
I guess what I'm hoping for is for somebody to point me to an existing ISO that I can use to install from my existing Leopard disc, or otherwise I'd be *eternally* grateful if someone could build an ISO for me that would work with my rig? Seriously, I have read through this site and insanelymac and osx86 wiki and I have just gone round and round and round but it is all just over my head! My wife and baby boy haven't seen me for days while I've been trying to get this working. I'd really, really appreciate somebody helping me as I simply can't afford a genuine Mac and I'm sure my hardware should be good enough!
Thanks so much in advance... happy to shout beers somehow for whoever can help me out!
