How to install Ideneb 1 .6 on AMD MSI K9N series (GUIDE)
How to install Ideneb 1 .6 on AMD MSI K9N series.
I am writing this guide just to help the people who are looking around the Internet for solution to their problems. The MB is kinda old and thatís why most the times itís really hard to get feedback online or guides based on this MB.
This guide should work on most systems that use AMD with Nivdia MB (Nforce550). I Think my guide should be find with MSI K9N Series with Socket AM2.
AMD Athlon x2 3800+ SSE2 SSE3 Support.
HDD WD SATA 250GB.
HDD2 MAXTOR 60GB (testing).
RAM DDR2 1GBx2 OZB + 2GB Kingston.
MB MSI K9N NEO Ė F. (Which means sound and network is built-in )
VGA EVEA NIVIDA GEFORCE 9600 512MB.
LG DVD Driver.
- Ideneb 1.6 Light OSX86 copy.
Mostly can be found online by doing a simple Google search, hint! Isohunt.com
- DVD burner, Blank DVD.
You will need to burn the iso into the DVD using any burning program you prefer. I personally used the Windows 7 defaults iso burning software, which didnít have an option to change the speed of burning. If you are going to use a program to burn the iso file you had downloaded (Ideneb OSX86 copy) then make sure that you use the slowest burning speed. (I didnít have the option to change the speed so I was guessing that windows 7 just burnt the iso with the default speed but since the developers suggested the slow speed I added this to my guide
- Screw driver! You will need this (maybe).
You will need to unscrew your PC case so you can be able to switch back anytime you want. My suggestion is to try testing first on your IDE HDD to see if its stable in your system, then move to installing it again on your SATA HDD when you think that it is stable for you to use the OSX as main OS. I kept my Windows 7 installation on my SATA drive so I can go back to it in case I had problems through the installation. Unplug the power cable from your SATA drive, and keep your IDE HDD connect. (You can disable it from booting too through the bios setup but I did it the faster way since my case was open).
I Had mine on this setting:
IDE DVD DRIVE Ė MASTER
IDE HDD 60GB MAXTOR Ė SLAVE
I had kernel panic every time I tried installing the OSX using 4GB ram, so after doing a research online I found that the best way is to start installing with 2GB ram maximum. Thatís why I suggest keeping your case open so you can remove the extra ram and re-install it back again after the installation.
- USB driver or HDD to store NforceLan Driver that is enclosed in the post attachments.
Installation: (make sure all your USB HDD or devices other than mouse and keyboard are unplugged)
- So here we start the process of installing. The first thing you need to make sure of before going anywhere is that you have the OSX CD in the machine. Restart the computer and enter the bios setup:
o Here I would suggest restoring to default settings unless you know what you are doing.
o After resting to default settings, go to boot options and make sure that you have your DVD Drive in first boot and your HDD in your second boot (you can use either your SATA or your IDE depending on your choice, I had one HDD showing in the list which was my IDE HDD since I unplugged my SATA for testing at the first try).
o Save your settings and exit the bois setup.
- Wait for the CD to boot up, Darwin Kernel will start then press any button to start the OSX installation. Apple logo will show up the screen will start loading.
- Select the language you prefer and then click on next.
- Now before you do anything, look at the top of the screen go to Utilities > Device Utility. Wait for it to load, here you will be able to create a partition on your HDD to install Mac OSX86.
o Click on your HDD that is located on the left side of your screen, to select partition from the tab on the right side of the screen.
o Select Volume Scheme (you can choose more than 1 partition depending on your choice but personally went with 1 only)
o Name your partition to whatever you like, suggestion use ďLeopardĒ without the quotes.
o Select format as Mac OS Extended Journaled.
o Go to option and make your partition as master, which is the last selection in the option menu.
o Apply your settings, wait for it to be done.
o Exit Drive Utility.
- Complete your installation by clicking next till you reach the page where you have to select your partition.
- Select your partition and click next.
- Go to customize to add the drivers and the fixes you need.
- Now make sure you getting the following selection before you click done. Make sure you donít choose more than one driver from the same kind. (Mostly this selection will work with any MSI K9N.)
o Under Kernel, select Voodoo 9.x.x
o Under Fixes, Select the Seatbelt fix, and IOUSBFamilyFix. (PS2Fix if you are using PS2 keyboard only Ė Optional For PS2 Keyboard users only -)
o Under Drivers Chipset, select AppleNforceATA.
o Under Drivers Audio, select VoodoHDA.
o Under Drivers Video, select your NVdarwin depending on your VGA card ram (eg. If you are 128MB then go with 128MB NVdarwin.)
o DONíT INSTALL NETWORK DRIVERS AT ALL DRIVER IS ENCLOSED WITH THIS GUIDE.
- Click done and proceed to installation. This is going to take about 15-25min for a SATA HDD and 40-1H if you are using your IDE HDD.
- When the installation is done the system is going to reboot. If you had problems through installation please post the code you got on the screen (Kernel freeze).
- Before you load into the OS enter the bios setup again, now this is what you need to do if you are using a USB mouse and keyboard so you donít end up having the mouse only. Either ways you have to go through this in order to get your USB ports working fine.
o In the bios setup, disable USB Legacy settings.
o Save and exit.
- Now you might want to consider shutting down your computer to install the ram that you unplugged earlier. (Optional)
- Run you computer and wait for the screen the apple logo to load. If you get Kernel panic here please post what you see so I can help you. Normally you OS should load unless you made mistakes picking up your drivers or another issue depend on the code that shows up on the screen.
- Wait for the video you to end.
- Select your keyboard. (If I didnít work then it means you didnít disable USB Legacy settings, if you did and it didnít even work then set your USB to 1.0 by disabling 2.0 USB in the bios setup)
- Complete the welcome setup, by choosing time user name and password. (Never forget your username and password).
- Congratulations you have a running Mac OSX; all you need to do now is install the Lan Driver.
- Plug your USB stick or HDD depend on where you downloaded the driver.
- Run the NforceLan driver, complete installation and then restart.
- When your computer runs give it a minute then check safari. (If it didnít work then click on the apple logo on the left top side of screen and go to system preferences > Network, in here change the Configure to off then return it back to normal to see if you get result. Usually it will connect directly.
Done, now you have a stable Mac OSX running on your system thanks to Ideneb. You can try if itís stable yet; Iíve been using mine for more than two days now and its fine. If you get any problems through your installation please post it here and I hope that I can be able to assist you. Sorry my writing skills arenít that prefect to create a huge guide like this, but I hope this works out.
i wrote this on my computer i will have to upload the nforcelan somwere else. and repost the link.
