  • ACER Aspire 2003WLMi

Native install fails. Hangs on "non emulation booting" - did copy image from install on Intel desktop D850EMV - works, but have problems installing apps - reason am newbie to mac? or wrong "install" method?

For "non emulating booting" error, try to flash a new bios from acer site. I did to install xp, it works

  • ACER Aspire 2012WLMi

Native install fails. Hangs on "non emulation booting" too.

The "non emulating booting" error, did happen with last acer bios version available.

  • Acer Aspire 5002 WLMi - Hangs on "Still waiting for root device"
  • ACER TravelMate 4150

Have an error message /com.apple.boot.plist not found and stop booting. I suspect there is a problems with the optical drive

[edit] Toshiba

  • Toshiba M45

Booting from DVD Image fails with com.apple.boot.plist not found. Even fails in VMware. I have this DVD working on Dell 700m.

NOTE: In this case try mounting the actual DVD in VMWare, or mount the image in Daemon-Tools and mount that drive in VMWare.

  • Toshiba M45 S165

Works in VMware, but cannot install via DVD ("Still waiting for root device" no matter what kernel parameter is used). If installed via VMware, chain0 cannot find the partition (even if its id is 0xaf).

  • Toshiba M45 S351 Working, Installed through VMware, booting natively, (triple boot with GRUB and Chain0 methos), Only Intel Wireless not working

EDIT: Works it an Intel 915 Fix kext is added to the DVD.

  • Toshiba M30

Native install fails. Hangs on "still waiting for root device". More information about the problem we think that it have. .

[edit] Compaq

  • Presario 2500 series
  • Presario V2000Z series

Booting from disk or from a VMware install results in a freezing at iopccardbridge. No workaround.

  • V5101US - Partially working. Can install and boot native with Myzar 10.4.6. The following hardware does not work.

-Video: Radeon 200M Stuck at 1024x768, no widescreen, no QE/CI

-WiFi: Broadcom 802.11b/g mini-PCI (has hardware switch that does not work in OSX to turn on/off)

-Sound: Conexant AMC Audio. May work with AC97 driver, but have not tested.

[edit] Maxdata

ECO 4200X - not working (cannot install)

[edit] eMachines


Gets to first screen of install, language selection, but keyboard and mouse do not function.

Diagnostic mode yields:

ApplePS2Controller: Timed out on mouse input stream

ApplePS2Controller: Timed out on keyboard input stream


Kernel panics when probing USB. Disable USB in the BIOS and the installer boots, but without USB there is no keyboard or mouse.

T5082 specs are here

[edit] Unsupported PCs

Kernel Panic with patch 1.0, 1.1a in native install. 1.1 gets to white/gray apple screen, then freezes

(((Try the JaS 1111a Generic Patch v4.2b is might help these issues))) (((wesley Patch has outdated emulation(1.1b))))

(((( Above user should try with 8f1111 with Weasly Patch)))) (((( Works Perfectly with newer version ))))

  • Athlon 64 3000+ (no SSE3) with revision E has sse3 support and works very fluent
