    Default iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6 - I NEED HELP PLEASE!!!!

    I've been trying to get the audio, network, and correct graphics drivers to work in this system. The problem is, when I try one, a lot of times the system crashes, and I have to reinstall.

    Is there a way I could undo whatever I've done, so I don't have to reinstall??? It's getting to the point where it's just ridiculous. Again, no disrespect.

    I do appreciate any help you could give me. Also, I'm looking for a driver to support the GeForce 7300, the 825xx Intel Gigabit Network card, and the Sigmatel 92xx Audio. Any help would I would be extremely grateful, thank you!!!

    iDeneb 1.4, driver GeForce 7300 try NVDarwin, select Intel 82566m for your Gigabit Network card. Sound card you can install Voodoohda (Google it).
    When installl iDeneb 1.4, select Voodoo kernel 9.5 + seatbelt.kext. Good luck !!!

    Thanks so much Cochon, I appreciate the help. I actually got the network portion to work, and partial graphics. meaning, I only have 1024x768. so i'm just looking to upgrade my graphics and install sound.

    i was curious if it's possible to use the Apple Update feature in the OS. I noticed that you can.

    also, it happened yet again. i was trying out a graphics driver, restarted, and now I it won't boot in. Is there anyway for me to NOT have to reinstall AGAIN! It seems as though if you don't nail it right on the nose with regards to your driver, you're screwed. Is there anyway to recover?

    i've tried booting in with -v -x -f anything! i can't get in. is there anyway of getting in so i don't have to reinstall? safemode doesn't even seem to work.

    I have to say, this just seems so stupid that Macintosh just doesn't fully port their operating system to PC and get it over with. It obviously works. I would GLADLY pay for their support if they did that. I'm considering purchasing a Macintosh iMac, as I really want to get more into Final Cut Pro and Motion. But the cost of their hard ware is ridiculous! I was a Mac user for some time earlier on in my life, and have spent tons on their equipment. I just can't justify the cost now, as it just doesn't seem right. Their operating system is nice, but it's not THAT nice! For under $1,000 off ebay, I got a Thinkpad with 4 gig of memory, a 7200rpm drive, running windows xp, and don't have a problem with anything! Ever! why in the name of all that's wholly should I purchase a $3,500 machine from Apple, to do the same damn thing, it's ridiculous. Apple, wake up. You want more of the market, be smarter with your sales. Just port the damn OS to PC and get on with your life. The secrets out, we know it will run. I'm running it now on an old DELL Dimension 9200!!!!! And aside from the few driver issues, thanks to HackintOsh, I have a fully running Mac OS. For free!!! Head, out of ass Apple.

    Pardon my ranting.

    Default One step at a time

    You have mixed up the command line boots - and you have not said you have used the most important one - s.

    You need to do some research on the MAC OS. It was not designed to run on anything but Apple hardware so these hackintosh efforts are extraordinary best efforts by others NOT affiliated with Apple and not paid for their efforts - so there is nothing ridiculous about it except you wanting something trouble free - for free - so if you want a trouble free machine go buy a real Mac - otherwise

    You need to boot with -s. If it loads that to a command line, you've got likely kext problems. Then try -x -v so you can see where it stops, slows, issues errors or hangs. If you get in that way to a desktop you've got probably video kext problems. these can be LOTS of different problems depending on whose distribution you installed and how old it is. Get the newest one - right now which is 10.5.6. IPC has some issues with laptop keyboards not working after install - IDeneb seems to go better.

    NO ONE can help you right now. You do not say what is wrong, you do not say what you did that does not work and you offer no clues as to your level of expertise as to EXACTLY where you are stumped. You just scream "please help me".

    If you go to a Medical Doctor and just scream "please help me" and will give no symptoms or clues as to what is going on - even a Doctor cannot help you but begin guessing - and guess what - they get paid to do so - no one here is being paid by you, and still the doctor could end up killing you rather than saving you because you did not tell a critic piece of information - like a severe allergy or something like that which could kill you in his efforts to help you. Computers - especially the OS's of computers are NO DIFFERENT.

    You do not say what is going on. No one is a mind reader here and were not sitting in front of your machine.

    Usually a Kext is likely probably not loading or blocking something - or the kernel panics. that means dies the horrible crash like a aircraft pilot would it the pilot panic'ed in an emergency situation and did not know what to do.

    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.

    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.

    If you have Windows still on the same machine - and 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 installing EasyBCD from inside Windows to boot between the two. Its free.

    This above will only work if you have been smart enough to do a dual boot machine where Windows is on another partition or permanent drive in the same computer. If Windows will not boot use a Vista repair disk or the XP disk to repair the boot sector - then install EasyBCD through Windows and it will see the MAC partition to let you set it up on the boot manager. Google how to get one if you do not have them.

    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.

    After you get in through safe mode, you can run "diskutils repairpermissions /" (without the quotes) and to fix the changes you made from the Windows side.

    You come in single user with the -s command at the prompt. Do what it says to mount the volume and then

    You do a "sudo -s" first (no quotes)
    cd /System/Library
    chmod -R 755 Extensions /
    touch Extensions /
    diskutil repairpermissions /

    There are other ways to do this and much more from the -s boot option (single user mode) but it is really getting UNIX specific as to the commands, and if you are there and know nothing anyway - you should probably pay someone, buy a real MAC or just give up - OR get ready for a real extensive learning curve and research on the web.

    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. it works for both CPUs Intel or AMD. IDeneb 10.5.6. might go more successfully.

    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.

    Of course you can always BUY a real MAC, and then holler "please help me" all you want to Apple Computer Support, and at some point they will tell you the same thing.

    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.

    Default Humbled

    Hi Bobburns,

    Thank you for taking the effort to help me, I do appreciate it. Pardon my complaining. I think I'll just keep it short so I don't continue to make an ass out of myself. :-)

    I did try what you suggested in the sense of -x -v and -s. What happens is the booting stops, with a message in yellow stating:

    "Failed to load extension com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPCI". Couldn't alloc class "AppleACPIPCI".

    Machine wise, I have a Dell Dimension 9200, with a nVideo GeForce 7300, 500 gig Sata, Sigmatel STAC 92xx audio, and Intel 825xx Gigabit Network Card.

    I ran the DiskUtility just in case, and there were permissions errors. Aside from that the disk was clean. I just get this error.

    This happened after I ran the update for the system, which updated Java, nothing else. I also installed NVkush via OSX86 Tools, so I could try and load a better video driver. Currently my video is only 1024x768 with no other options.

    So the goals I have left for this are to get this booting again, so I can fix the audio, and put a better graphics driver in there, which is tuned more for my video card.

    I hope that helps. Again, thanks so much for the help bobburns, and pardon my complaining. I do appreciate your time and help.

    I will definitely look more into the boot process, as from what you're saying and what is happening, like any system, this is crucial with the running of any system.

    Default Thanks bobburns

    Thanks bobburns, I fixed the problem. I was able to figure out that Apple has had a long standing problem with this graphics card (nVidia 7300GT). So I just used a different driver, and it works perfectly.

    Sorry to be such a bother.
