Gfx, lan, wifi, sound - nothing are working, driver problems
first of all, sorry for my english ( i'm hungarian ) i've a notebook ( MSI EX400X ), and i'd like to use osx86 on it. i installed successfully iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6, but it was not simple :wacko: ( 3 partition, 1-win, 2-data, 3-osx, with dual boot ).
the first problem is, that the osx want boot only from dvd, with rd=disk0s3... if i don't use the dvd, the boot hang on with the apple logo and the grey bg.
when he was "successfully" booted - generally with -s or -x boot option -, i become the other problems -.-' the system can't use any hw! eg. no lan, gfx, sound, wifi :unsure: i was tested some solutions ( some kext installed - with kexthelper, read some forum post ), but nothing are working :/ i was tested other distributions, like XXX_Final, iPc, iAtkos but with these reset my computer before i can see the gui installer... only the iDeneb v1.4 "work". plz help me, becouse i'll be give up

You need to edit some kexts
Since you have Windows still on - and I am guessing 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 EasyBCD. Its free.
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.
That Dell is an Intel x4500 based unit, and the devices i see are beyond some to the normal MacOS commonly supported items.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Bump around google
Bump around Google searching with the video issues. Deneb 1.3 is 10.5.5. and it has issues solved best found by you hunting the web
i've been searched for a long time, but i could'nt found any driver that works be fine only grey screen, hanging on boot etc..
