    Default Extremely long booting time.

    Hi there guys, I got my iATKOS v7 10.5.7 Hackintosh running awesomely.
    Just 2 problems:
    1. When ever I boot my mac through the Chameleon V2 boot loader, i put those commands:
    rd=disk0s2 arch=i386

    just because i don't want it to fail.
    after the gray apple loading which takes like 3 minutes, comes a pitch black screen for like 8 more minutes before mac finally fully comes up.
    what can I do?
    my specs are pretty much good, 2GB RAM, C2D 2.66GHz, 9800GT 512MB nvidia geforce.

    2. I got tiny mouse lag and skipping, not related to iTunes or Quicktime, its just a tiny mouse lag and window dragging lag, what can I do with it?

    thanks!

    Hi there,
    So you said it took 11-12 min for OSX to load? That is a bit too long, I think.
    And the bootflags you got there is strange too.
    Just for curiosity, what is your motherboard model and is it fully AHCI?
    And what kernel are you using?
    For your other question, I think there is kexts to fix the mouse issue.

    Regards,

    Thanks alot for the reply, ratvn.
    My motherboard model is Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L.
    I have used 3 different distros and had that boot time issue.
    iPC
    iATKOS
    Leo4All

    I don't know if its fully AHCI, but in BIOS i enabled:
    S.M.A.R.T
    Native IDE or something like that
    and AHCI Enabled.

    is it okay?

    About the mouse lag and skip issue, my friend says its because I don't have a mac mouse. sounds like rubbish to me.
    Any kexts you know of?

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    About the mouse lag issue, there is a fix that come with distro, or you can go to kexts.com to see if they have the kexts there. Does not need Mac mouse. I have both PS2, and USB and they are working well.

    Your BIOS, SATA to AHCI? not ACPI, you need this as well, and SATA native.

    You may not have this setting correct, hence the bootflag rd=disk0s2, and the other bootflag is mostly for Snow Leopard to force 32 bit mode, which is not really apply to your Leopard.

    Also with your system you could use the vanilla kernel, which is faster then other mod kernels.
    You can try set your BIOS to see what happens.
    Regards,

    You are using VoodooPS2controller for keyboard/mouse?

    My SATA is configured to AHCI, not ACPI as well as SATA native.
    I tried to boot up with no flags at all, same result, well, it works! but the boot takes a long time, really long time.
    Where can I get a vanilla kernel and what is it? I'm a real noob at that
    Can I set my bios to Optimized Settings and see what happens? will it work?
    I am not using VoodooPS2controller.

    Hi,
    You can try, but usually the default with some settings for OSX is sufficient.
    Maybe you want to try Ideneb 1.6 10.5.8 because that is for most Intel, iAtkos is a bit more heavy mod for AMD.

    But anyhow, I would look into BIOS, as it seems like that is the common there with different distros. Is it the latest BIOS version? And if you use the distro then try to do DSDT patches for it as that will complement your BIOS ACPI table.
    Good luck,
    Regards,
    Vanilla is the original mac kernel without any modification, that is in the distro DVD.

    My BIOS version is not up to date, I will update it now.
    What is DSDT?

    BTW: I can't manage to get a full support out of my GPU. I'm trying with OSX86 tools, already tried with NVInject, NVDarwin and Natit, still nothing.
    My GPU is nVIDIA 9800GT 512MB.
    The best results that I could get is by using the OSX86 Tools and doing EFI Strings or something in the software. I got the resolution right and no mouse lag and skip (which points on the source of the problem, which is the graphic driver.)

    I've people have good luck with EFIStudio for EFI string injection for that 9800, and also you can try the latest NVEnabler.
    DSDT basically complements your BIOS ACPI table and support hardware specs to your OSX kernel/system to operate your hardware better.
    The DSDT patcher is also available in your Ideneb distro DVD.

    Cheers,

    I don't have iDeneb yet, I always see 1.6 lite and not the regular one...couldn't find it yet.
    So i'll download EFIStudio and see whats up, if not, NVEnabler will be my next.
    Can I download DSDT from the web? can I find it in the Leo4All distro DVD?

    Hi there,
    Ideneb 1.6 10.5.8 Lite Edition is the one

    Try NVEnabler first before EFIStudio because efi string is your last resort.
    DSDT patcher is in Ideneb 1.6.

    Hope this helps.
    Regards,

    Edit Make sure you delete your old driver/kexts first before installing the new one, and after do: clear kext caches, delete extensions.mkext, repair permission.
