   * Model: Aspire 5315 051G08Mi 
   * Install Methods summary: 

Used iPC 10.5.6, Vanilla kernel + applied patches ppf 1-5 to iso from iPC website. You must apply the patches to the iso in order to get all the drivers so that your computer will work, i.e the keyboard and mouse does not work by default. (I did not select a kernel in setup, so it chose the default vanilla kernal, which works. Vodoo and XNU kernels seemed to work, but require furhter testing). Everything else worked fine during install. I did not select a kernel because the setup then uses the vanilla kernal which is not listed. I also did not select a video driver, even though GMAX3100 is compatible, the startup screen would not load when i had this driver installed.

   * BIOS Version: 1.43 (I flashed it from XP to patch the fan issues. Everything seems to be fine now)
   * BIOS setup options: Sata set to AHCI Mode
   * Processor Model: Intel Celeron
   * Speed: 1.73GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 1MB L2 cache.
   * Recognized as what in System Profiler: Intel Celeron CPU 530
   * Audio: Realtek High Definition Audio (10EC:0268), used ALC268 by Madtux driver (in customize packages).
   * LAN: Broadcom Netlink Fast Ethernet (14E4:1713), Not working, couldnt find driver.
   * WLAN: Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter (168C:001C), Atheros AR507EG, 40% chance of working (in customize packages).
   * Modem: HDAudio Soft data fax Modem with smart cp (14F1:2C06), Untested as I dont need it.
   * SATA & IDE: SATA worked out of the box. IDE untested.
   * Partitoned as MBR drive (So I can duel boot with XP)
   * Graphics: Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family X3100 256MB (8086:2A02), did not install a video driver, default works fine. I had problems installing GMAX3100 driver
   * Quartz Extreme : Supported, all resolutions available.
   * Other Accessories (USB/FIREWIRE) : Yes
   * Power Management: PowerManagement Package (in customize packages); works great!
<Fixes and Patches>
   * Keyboard: select both PS/2 Device Support fixes for keyboard and mouse, or they wont work after install
   * Also selected Shutdown/Restart Fix

SideNote, this is what got my computer to boot and startup, a lot of other packages were left untested such as different kernels, please update upon findings. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Extensa 5220 -201G16Mi

System Version: Mac OS X 10.5.6 (9G55) | Kernel Version: Darwin 9.6.0 | Bootloader: Chameleon 2.0rc | Installed: Leopard Retail DVD 10.5.1 + Combo Update 10.5.6

Install method:

My install is an adaptation of Karaakeha�s tutorial ---> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=76404. This install methodworked to Acer 5620z too. I replaced my LACIE usb external hd with the laptops drive. Using my MBP I installed the Chameleon 2.0rc EFI Bootloader, my Retail DVD 10.5.1 which I had bought for my MBP (had made a DMG of it earlier) and Combo Update 10.5.6 DMG to the destination HD. Using the terminal I removed the following kexts from the install HDs System/Library/Extensions folder

  • AppleEFIRuntime.kext
  • AppleHWSensor.kext
  • AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext

I manually removed these and copied replacement kexts:

I repaired the permissions in the terminal and removed the harddrive from the LACIE USB-case and put it back in the laptop. Changed the MoBo to ACHI mode from BIOS and the laptop booted up nicely. Unfortunately the laptops keyboard & mouse wasn�t detected, so I had to use USB mouse and a USB keyboard to create the user account. Then it was time to find out how to get things working.

What works:

What doesn't work

  • Sleep disables WIFI and sometimes keyboard functionality
  • Texas instruments 803c 5in1 sd-cardreader (driver should be possible to make) Chunnans fix shows the bus in System Profiler
  • LAN-fix and PCMCIA-fix disables Sleep functionality.


  • You can update everything using Apple Software Update but the Airport-updates break the WIFI so you have to do the fix again.
  • Also the 2finger scroll might break so you might have to do the fix again. . . -ALLNUTZ

Extensa 5620z

Install Method: Iatkos v5i 10.5.5 (do not forget to update the BIOS before you start!!!). IDeneb v1.4 10.5.6 works also

  • I use the Chameleon bootloader, chameleon bootloader v2 works perfect
  • System boot's up in 30sec.

What works:

  • Processor: Core 2 Duo T2310 @ 1.6GHz
  • Audio works

Problems encountered during setup

  • The Installation DVD would boot up for a few seconds then will have a problem finding the root device. to overcome this i had to boot into safe mode using -x command . It should boot up.
  • After installing i had a problem mounting .dmgs. the first thing i was installing was callisto so i thought that it may be the driver that is incompatible, but then tried to install MSN messenger and the same thing happened. the problem was that it would panic half way through mounting. to overcome this i had to go through setup again using the boot up cd but dont reinstall the OS, deselect everything and only select the "seatbelt fix" under fix. after installing and then a reboot, the problem was fixed.

All is fine now and i have accompanied OSX with a dual boot with windows vista . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Latitude E6400

   * XxX x86 10.5.6 Install Disc Universal Final AMD|Intel SSE2|SSE3
   * Laptop could boot without any customization. And default (minimal) XxX Essential KEXTs are:
     AppleDecrypt, NullCPU PM Disabler, SMBIOSEFI Enabler, PS2Nub Enabler, and PS2Controller. Default kernel is the original vanilla kernel 9.6.0.
   * Install onto LaCie 250GB Little Disk, boot with default boot loader (Chameleon 1.0.12 without tweaks).
   * SATA Disk and DVD Burner on Intel ICH9 work both in AHCI and IRRT mode by using AppleAHCIPort Extended ICH8/ICH9/ICH10.
     IRRT works as SATA+AHCI perfectly. This kext must be load before first boot, otherwise the boot device would be found at disk"0",
     and local disk would not work after the second boot. Also tried AppleIntelPIIXATA ICHx which could also recognize AHCI, but no IRRT
     (in this mode both local disk and DVD are not recognized), and it conflicts with Extended AppleAHCIPort.
   * Intel Core2 Duo - 4 Gigs Mem all detected and working.
   * Built in Webcam detected without any additional Kext
   * Built in USB 2.0 used as boot device detected without any Kext.
     But some unknown transaction timeout error while waiting root device would take around 40 sec.
   * DVD Burner detected in both AHCI and IRRT with the same Kext as ICH9 mentioned above.
   * eSATA port not tested yet.
   * Intel 5300 WiFi Pro the same as 10.5.2+, still not work.
   * Touchpad the same as 10.5.2+ that only work after first wake up, and built in stick mouse fine.
   * Built in Intel 82525 Ethernet Works by using Intel8266M KEXT from 10.5.5, and could be found at iPC 10.5.6 and iDeneb DVD family.
   * Nvidia NVS Quadro 160M Video card works perfect with NVdarwine (patched EFI) from 10.5.5, Quartz Extreme working,
     and could even support Hardware Decoding H.264 using Plex. But NVdarwine 256M in XxX DVD doens't work. Also tried NVInjector 256m,
     Quartz works but OpenGL could not pass the xBench test, and both VLC and Plex have only sound but no video while playing.
   * IDT Sound card works properly by using HDAEnabler plus patched AppleHDA Kext, which could also be found at iDeneb 10.5.6.
     But same as 10.5.2+, output is not as good as that in Vista while playing blu-ray video and lossless music.
     And sometimes makes "cracked" sound in IRRT mode.
   * Laptop battery recognized by using ACPIBatteryManagement.kext in XxX DVD.
   * TPM not tested.
   * Built in Firewire not tested.
   * Memory Card not tested.
   * Secure Card Reader not tested.
   * PCMCIA Card slot not tested
   * Express Card Slot not tested
   * Later also applied the following KEXTs: SMBIOS (optional), JMicroATA with JMB360 (recommended),
     Intel CPU PM Disabler (recommended), LocalTime-toggler (this is not a kext, but recommended).
   * Unknown UUID error solved by using legalcy UUID Kext in XxX DVD, and hence Darwine works fine.
   * Still could not shutdown/restart after loading any NVIDIA driver kext.
   * Hibernate support not tested.
   * Time machine not fully tested yet. Seems could at least do backup without additional kexts.
   * Also tried iDeneb which always causes kernel panic. Besides, iPC 10.5.6 also boot and installed as good as XxX;
     just both of iDeneb and iPC failed to install boot1h to my disk1s2 (2nd partition in USB disk) and have to do it manually before first boot.
     Both iDeneb and iPC use too many patches secretly and hence hard to analyze what the minimal required patches are.
   * Be careful that Timeout key is not inserted into com.apple.Boot.plist.
     If you want to ignore cache don't forget to keep pushing F8 on the first boot.
    Here are the minimal kexts 
   *Base: (Disabler and Enabler KEXTs, default configuration in XxX without customization)
   What works:
   *Processor: Intel Core 2 DUE P8400 @ 2.26GHz, 3M L2 Cache (Original mach kernel)
   *Audio: IDT 92HDxxx HD Audio (HDAEnable + IDT patched AppleHDA)
   *Battery: 6 Cell (ACPI Battery Manager)
   *Video: nVidia Quadro NVS 160M (NVdarwine 256 + EFI)
   *LAN: Intel 82567 Gigabit (Intel8266MM)

   *WLAN: Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN
   *Shutdown/Restart (only work without NV kext)
    unknown or not tested

   * DVD Boots perfectly to install
   * Must use ICH9 Apple Kext on First install or won't boot on first restart.

   * USB based Bluetooth works fine and produces bluetooth icon and new pairing options
   * TPM Not detected on secure laptop

   * When installing press F8 and select the boot flag -X otherwise it'll freeze at boot up.  Select EFI v9 for boot loader.  Audio driver Sigmatel 9205 plus HDAEnabler.  Onboard ethernet is Broadcom BCM4401 so select the BCM440x driver.  Leave everything else unchecked.
   * Core2duo  - works. Both cores and memory all fine.
   * Video - GMAX3100 (untouched apple drivers) works with QE/CI and display sleep after initial hot corner fix at first boot.
   * Audio - Sigmatel 9205 Works. Headphone detection and mic in.
   * DVD writer - Works fine both reading and writing.
   * USB - Mice, flash drives etc all working.
   * Firewire - not tested because i don't have any but is recognized in System profiler as 400mb/s port.
   * Bluetooth - Tested all working.

   * needed to revert to 10.5.5 seatbelt.kext to avoid crashes on mounting DMGs (version mismatch with voodoo kernel)
   * need to replace AppleYukon2.kext with AppleYukon.kext (from 10.5.5) to reenable gigabit ethernet
   * mostly working but not extensively tested yet . .

   * 10.5.6 iPC final DVD (build 9G55)
   * a couple of modifications in the kernel extensions section are necessary, make sure that you do the chmod, chown, kernelextension cache and diskrepair issues:
   * it has a Intel 945GM Graphics Card, so this one is incompatible with Apple 950 and 3100 and Integrated Frame Buffer extensions - remove these files
   * needed to apply PS/2-mouse and -keyboard patches from the iPC 10.5.6 DVD (which are included, thx!) to get internal keyboard and trackpad (and trackpoint!) working, used external mouse and keyboard for installation routine, left mouse click works, however, not the middle scroll switch.
   * used AppleYukon2.kext (part of IONetworkingFamily.kext) to get Marvel 88E8055 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter running: remove secondary match in the entry of file "Info.plist" and it just works. As an alternative you can search for subvendor ID and subdevice ID using tools on Linux or Windows and enter that as secondary match. I just skipped that, primary match only just works.
   * wireless does not work out of the box, although it has an Atheros 5006EG chip which is quite similar to the hardware that Apple has used. I guess that is also an issue of subvendor or subdevice ID. Kept that as future work.
   * sleep does not work either, also future work
   * installed everything on a 8GB memory stick (painfully slow), but USB 2.0 works! . . . . . .

Lifebook S7211

Installation method: 10.5.6 iPC X-DL DVD What DO NOT works:

  • Random crash during startup. (To go to installation screen). Sometimes having kernel panic.

Safe mode reduce such chances but I still getting 1 attempt with such screen.

  • Verbose mode do not really help.
  • Live part of DVD do NOT work, even with default RamDisk Value. (After a few seconds, I am greeted with prompt AGAIN)
  • After you have refered to "What it "works"" section, you will reliazed that it boots with a long time (10 mins or so) you will be greeted with blue screen, and "refreshed" with black screen with immediate blue and black screen. No progress since then. No panic message etc. Verbose mode will only waste your time not to appericiate the beauty of gray apple logo and result with this situation.

What it "works":

  • Normal mode is possible to see installation screen. (Despite having chance to be crashed, and have to try reboot etc and MOST importantly, this takes hell long. It is possible for me to wait for 15 mins to 30 minutes just to see the installation screen and takes about an hour to install that)

Installed with the iPC OS X86 Final By no means am I an expert, but I got this to work: VooDoo Kernel, Intel GMA950, Intel ICHx Sata Drivers, Realtek RTL8187/L (had to replace Intel 3945 wireless card with another OEM off eBay), Patched USB Drivers, PCCenUSBEHCI, VooDoo Power, Clamshell Display, IOPCIFamily.kext.patched, IOPCMCIAFamily, Seatbelt, Shutdown/Restart Fix, Both PS2 Drivers

After initial install, still had no sound. Used Ubuntu live cd for the linux codec dump and dropped it into the AppleHDAPatcher 1.20 and sound came right on.

Still don't have network on Marvell Yukon 88e8038 or firewire and still working on some power settings. But I have wireless and sound and a fairly stable dual boot hackintosh. .


HP Pavilion dv1668ea

Product ID: HP Pavilion dv1000 (EW490EA#ABH)
CPU: Intel Core Duo T2300 (Supports MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3)
Chipset: Intel 82950GM
Ram: 2GB DDR2 @ 667mhz
VGA: Intel GMA 945 (integrated)
Sound: (Intel ICH7) Conexant High Definition Audio Controller
Ethernet: Intel Pro/100 VE Network Connection (8086:1092)
Wireless: Intel Pro/Wireless 3945ABG
HDD: Hitachi HTS72201 (100GB, SATA, 7200rpm)
Optical Drive: TSSTCorp CD/DVDW TS-L532M

I used iPC 10.5.6.
Everything worked except any form of networking: The Ethernet controller didn't get detected and the wireless controller doesn't have a driver.
Keyboard and mouse needed the PS/2 keyboard+mouse patch to work.
Burning DVD's worked fine.

HP Pavilion dv9702ea (AMD Series)

CPU: Mobile DualCore AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-60 (Supports x86, x86-64, MMX, 3DNow!, SSE, SSE2, SSE3)
Motherboard: Quanta 30DA
Chipset: nVIDIA MCP67
Ram: 2GB DDR2 @ 667mhz
VGA: PCI Express x16 nVIDIA NB8M-GS (G86M) - NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS (256 MB)
Sound: Conexant @ nVIDIA MCP67 - High Definition Audio Controller
Network: NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller
Wireless: Atheros AR5006X Wireless Network Adapter (It's actually AR242x)

I used iDeneb v1.4 (10.5.6) with the following packages to get this laptop ALMOST fully working:

  • Alternative Essential Patch: ACPI Kext 10.5.6, PS2Fix for ACPI kext 10.5.6 (Keyboard only... not Mouse)
  • Audio: AppleAzaliaAudio
  • Chipset: MCP67
  • Kernel: Kernel 9.5.0 Voodoo

  • Fix: AppleSMIBIOS 667, BatteryManager, Seatbel Fix, Idlehalt fix
  • Video: NVInject 0.2.1 256mb

The only thing that's stopping me from using this laptop as a Mac is the lack of wireless!! It's been driving me crazy for the last week :(

Someone provide a fix please?

hp Pavilion dv6314tx

OSx86 Distribution: iPC 10.5.6 PPF5 (upgraded successfully to 10.5.7 without any hiccups)
Kernel: Vanilla
CPU: Intel Centrino Duo
RAM: 1 GiB (mine has 2GiB) DDR2
Chipset: Intel 945GM/Intel ICH7 family (use the ICHx family drivers)
Audio: Conexant Hidef (Mic and Headphones don't work)
Video: NVIDIA Geforce Go 7400 (128 MB; use NVDarwin 128 MB)
Ethernet: Intel VPro 100 LAN
Wireless: Intel 3945abg (not functional but detected after installing the beta drivers; the LED works; wireless networks are not found and connections cannot be made)

I chose these packages:

* BatteryManager
* Additional Applications excluding those for AMD machines.
* Mass USB storage fix
* Enabled PS/2 Keyboard (including mouse)
* Chipset drivers (Intel ICHx family)
* NVDarwin 128 MB
* Conexant Hidef Audio
* NTFS-3g NTFS Drivers
* PCI and PCMCIA drivers.
* USB speed enhancement patch with IO Mass Storage Fix by slice.


* My synaptics touchpad and keyboard did not work on the first attempt.  After adding the USB fix and PS/2 drivers, on the second try, they worked.
* I forgot to install the battery management programs on the first attempt.  The battery indicator did not turn up.  Installing them on the second attempt worked.
* Installing OSx86 using the Mac OS Case-Sensitive, Journaled filesystem caused Adobe CS4 products to fail at installation.  Adobe products do not support "Case-sensitive file systems currently".  People using these products are recommended to use the filesystem "Mac OS Journaled" instead.
* I'm using a dual-boot with Ubuntu 9.04.  Ubuntu can read the Mac OS partition out of the box, but cannot write to Journaled partitions.  People wanting write access will need to give up journaling.  I'd prefer keeping journaling on for system maintenance, so I'm currently using an external NTFS removable drive to transfer data between both systems. Both can read from and write to NTFS (using NTFS-3g).
* I tried the latest SVN version of iwdarwin for my wireless card.  Still no go.

What does not work:

* Synaptics trackpad does not allow tap clicking (*update* installing the synaptics driver available here:
    http://forums.msiwind.net/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=10109 fixes all the trackpad problems). 
* Scrolling on the touchpad does not work.
* Headphones (SPDIF as well) and microphone don't work.
* My webcam works but the video input is choppy with "greenlines".
* Card reader does not work (drivers not installed)
* Sleep and hibernate don't work.
* The modifier key Option is set to the Windows key.  Both need to be swapped after installation.

Upgrading and Notes:

* The latest upgrade 10.5.7 released (I used the delta that upgrades only 10.5.6 to 10.5.7) works flawlessly.
* With an earlier installation of Tiger 10.4.8 USB devices did not hotplug.  The USB fix mentioned earlier fixes this and connecting any USB device works extremely well. . . . .

hp Pavilion DV4-1000 Intel Series

I own hp Pavilion dv4-1030ee

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 2.0 GHz
Chipset: Intel ICH9M
Audio: IDT
Video: 9200M GT 256 DDR2
Wifi: Intel WiFi Link 5100
Ethernet: Realtek 8168C

Installed iDeneb V1.4 10.5.6 and Retail DVD gudied for dv3500 series and worked perfectly but I have problems when plugging in USB2 devices.

I installed on internal hard disk.

I selected this packages:

* Audio IDT
* Chipset ICHx Fixed (the orange icons are also fixed)
* RealtekR1000
* Firewire Remove
* IOUSBFamilyFix
* BatteryManager
* NVdarwin 1.2.5 for 256 


* Wireless not working
* Bluetooth works
* Webcam is OK
* USB2 are not OK, it makes crashing all the time
* Quicklaunch buttons works
* Shutdown and restart OK . .

HP Pavilion dv2550se

   * Install Method: iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6
   * Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T5250 1.5GHz processor (working)
   * Memory: 2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM (working)
   * Hard Drive: 160GB Serial ATA Drive (working)
   * Optical Drive: DVD+/-RW (working)
   * Audio: Conexant High Definition Audio (output working, no input or mic in)
   * Ethernet: Marvell Yukon 88E8039 (working) -> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversion/index.php/t96959.html
   * Video: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 (working but with no QE&CI)
   * Wireless: Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG (not working)
   * USB/Firewire: (both work)

Seems a little less stable than iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 as a whole. For some reason, quartz extreme does not work in this version, while it worked fine in the last version. Audio does not have input or microphone in, output works fine though. Ethernet is an easy fix, of course a wireless solution is not available for now. Had to install the PowerOff_OH for shutdowns to work (wouldn't shut down properly before).

HP EliteBook 6930p

   * Install Method: iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6
   * Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T9400  @ 2.53GHz

   * Hard Drive: 250GB SATA 
   * Audio: AD1984A (only sound output to external headphone jack)
   * Ethernet: Intel 82567 (works)
   * Video: Mobile Intel 4 Series X4500 (do not work, use only 1024x768)
   * Wireless: Broadcom (works)

I have installed with patches selected: Audio AD1984, ICHx Fixed, Network 82566 Series, AppleSMBIOS MacBook, Battery Manager, and RT73 for USB wireless. First USB has not functioned correctly, and I installed patched AppleUSBEHCI.kext from slice's post. Removed AppleHPET.kext because interferes with USB, than it works OK. I have used ralink RT73 usb dongle for Wireless instead. . . . .

HP DV5-1100 Series

I own hp dv5-1128el but I think is almost the same with all intel/nvidia dv5-1100 series.

Cpu: Intel p8600 2.4 ghz
Ram: 4gb ddr2
Chipset: Intel Ich9-m
Audio: IDT 92hd72b7 on 828011b ich9
Video: 9600m gt 512 ddr2 (10DE 0649)
Wifi: Intel 5100
Lan: Realtek 8168C

Installed Ideneb 1.4 10.5.6 and worked perfectly, with others distributions I have problems with usb, system profiler ecc..

I installed on an external hard disk but it works also on the internal hard disk.

I selected this packages:

* ACPI Kext 10.5.6
* PS2Fix Keyboard
* Audio IDT (full working with out, in and mic)
* Chipset ICHx Fixed (the orange icons are also fixed)
* Kernel don't select anything, it will install the default vanilla 9.6.0
* BatteryManager
* PowerOff_OH ( OpenhaltRestart.kext by Pystar )
* NVdarwin 1.2.5 for 512 (fully works, qe/ci enabled)
* IOUSBFamily (full working usb)


* Wireless not working
* Lan realtek 8168C download drivers from realtek site [6] or direct link here [7]
* Bluetooth works
* Webcam is ok
* Firewire is ok
* Quicklaunch buttons works
* Shutdown and restart ok . . . .

  • I have tested this setup on a dv5-1138tx and it works like a charm! Previously I tried iATKOS and Kalyway but iDeneb is the only one I could get to work with this type of laptop.


HP TC4200 Tablet

   * 10.5.6 working iDeneb PERFECTLY!!! 
   * Kernel select SSE2 initally, updated later via voodoo kernel in google code project
   * select fix for the DMG mount hang. 
   * Ethernet I selected Apple BCM5721 works out of box
   * Wireless I selected broadcom package works out of box
   * Integrated bluetooth works out of box
   * VGA select Intel 900 GMA 
   * Installed SuperHai power management speedstep kext AFTER installing voodoo kernel, speedstep working perfectly 
   * Tabletmagic working perfectly - Follow instructions here
   * Audio select AC97

Overall its really a impressive tablet Mac .

HP 530

   * 10.5.6 working PERFECTLY!!! All vanilla - runs and updates just like real MAC!
   * Installed using iATKOS_5i 10.5.5 - Only check x86 ACPI, Remove thermal kexts, EFI string for Intel, Intel SATA, Intel Speedstep b, and Intel Pro/100 VE. Leave all others as is. Everything works straight away.
   * Apple update to 10.5.6 and all good after.
   * Celeron M recognize as Intel Core Solo 1.47GHZ
   * Audio, Wifi, LAN, QE/CI, Touchpad, Brightness/Volume controls All work OOB (even after 10.5.6 update) using above installation.
   * USB 2.0 fully working
   * Only hiccup is no battery guage, have not pursued fix tho and could probably easily fix.
   * Blue light on Wifi button always blinks, but does not interfere with anything.
   * Have not tested sleep as I never use it. Shutdown and restart work without flaws.
   * After install you must add GenericCPUPMControl to startup apps or speedstep will not function and it will get HOT (and loud) even idle.

Overall it is extremely useable and impressively fast and stable. . .

If you have a 530 with a Celeron 1.73 and Bios Ver F.07 Use the above instructions and then do the following.

  • Download Kext Helper b7, you will need this to properly install the kext files
  • Battery downlaod (AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext) install and reboot
  • Wireless download (bcm43xx_enabler.sh) Install and reboot
  • Display download the (GMA950.pkg) only install the frame buffer then reboot. You will now get 1280x800 millions w/ CI/QE

The above instructions are correct, but failed to mention when you choose x86ACPI you disable string installers. Also DO NOT do the upgrade to 10.5.6 just yet. if you do your track pad will no longer tap and they have a wireless problem with WEP. The 10.5.6 update will install and reboot with no problems, other than the above problems. Ignore the failed hibration file on boot or buy a real macbook pro. The Processor will show as 1.73 Unknown.

It's the AMD Turion 64 ML32 type + the ATI x200 (200M) Chipset/Graphic/Audio


XxX 10.5.6 Universal

HW Tools to make it easy

  • Another PC with an updated BIOS
  • A IDE/USB 2,5 HD Box
  • An external DVD/USB Player

Even if there are tricks to install it directly from the Internal DVD or an external one (waiting 10 second before pressing the right device on "Boot Select" at bios) is faster if you use another PC (Darwin Friendly) to prepare your hard disk in the IDE/USB box (to avoid jumper issues/freezes on ATA disks)


  • AMD Turion 64 ML 32
  • Chipset ATI x200
  • SouthBridge SB400
  • Radeon Xpress 200M (x200) - 128MB
  • HDD Fujitsu MHV 2080H 80 GB
  • HDD (Additional) Seagate ST 9100822A 100 GB
  • DVD ATAPI Hitachi HL-DT-ST
  • WiFi/BT: Broadcom
  • Ethernet
  • AC97 Integrated
  • Synaptics Trackpad

How to Install (Choose the following pkgs/kexts)

  • Chipset ATI SB450 PATA
  • Chipset ATIATA
  • Video ATI Callisto Beta 003
  • Audio AC97ATIIXP
  • Wireless Network Broadcom Package

Everything works but:

  • Synaptics "Tap-to-click" and other advanced Apple features (I use a USB Mouse)
  • Quartz Extreme on ATI Radeon (no way, actually)
  • Some minor keyboard issues (comas instead of periods on numeric pad...I use the Italian layout)

Hope to update it with good news .

10.5.7 Update

here’s my kombat recipe to get the 10.5.7 update working properly on an AMD Turion ML 32 (HP Pavilion DV8000).

  • Got the Ideneb 10.5.7 Update Pkg somewhere google will reveal
  • Launched the Install and restarted at final. Had to hard reset, anyway, cause the restart freezed.
  • At boot I typed “voodoo” before Darwin loading (pressed F8 if no boot config file is set).
  • To avoid Kernel Panic while mounting DMGs, I replaced the new seatbelt.kext with one compatible with voodoo 9.5.0. I took advantage of Lanceomni kindness (Supermod at Infinite Mac) that provided the seatbelt.kext here http://www.infinitemac.com/f5/updated-dmg-mounting-issues-seatbelt-kext-new-versions-t1992/. .

HP DV7-1090ed

My HP dv7 pavillion works fine with iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6! Graphic performance is perfect as well! I think it is very similar to the dv5-1100 series.

Cpu: Core 2 Duo P8600 2.4 ghz
Ram: 4gb ddr2
Chipset: Intel Ich9-m
Audio: IDT
Video: 9600M GT 512 DDR2 (10DE 0649)
Wifi: Intel 5100
Lan: Realtek 8168C

I installed on the internal hard disk (Chameleon v1.0.12 with BOOTEFI9)

* ACPI Kext 10.5.6
* PS2Fix Mouse
* PS2Fix Keyboard
* Audio IDT (full working with out, in and mic)
* Chipset ICHx Fixed (the orange icons are also fixed)
* Kernel don't select anything, it will install the default vanilla 9.6.0
* BatteryManager
* NVdarwin 1.2.5 for 512 (fully works, qe/ci enabled)
* Ethernet Realtek r1000 

Only Wireless and webcam is not working (yet). . . .

HP DV3510nr/DV3540es/DV3550eo/DV3500

-10.5.6 Retail working very well. Needed to edit the retail disc to install onto MBR partitions to keep Vista intact, but that is needed for any retail install like this.

CPU: P7350 2.0ghz - both cores work
RAM: 4GB DDR2 - all recognized
Video: Nvidia 9300M GS - Fully works with resolution changes, QE and CI. Used 9000 series drivers v2 by aquamac. Then installed nvInstaller .52 and selected 512MB, NOT GO drivers.
Intel Wifi 5100 AGN - Does not work. HP's BIOS whitelist prevents the wifi card being switched out with a compatible one unless the whitelist is hacked.
Audio - Fully works. Internal and external speakers and microphone fully work.
Internal mouse and keyboard - need PS2FixKeyboard.pkg to work if you are using a retail distribution.
USB - Works.
Bluetooth - Works.
Webcam - Works.
Chipset - Recognized.
Speedstep - Works.
Restart+Shutdown - Works.
Ethernet - Works.
Battery Management - Works.
HDMI - Video works, but audio does not.
Card Reader - Works.
Sleep - Goes into sleep, but does not wake up.
Validity Fingerprint Reader - Does not work.
Brightness Controls - Do not work.
Infrared Receiver - Does not work.

Getting it all working: Follow this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=155318 So far, this is turning out to make a great Macbook. If you can live without Wifi, edit the BIOS whitelist or card ID to work, or buy a working USB wifi dongle, then this is an excellent laptop to consider buying. . .

HP 6830s

Hardware: Intel Core2Duo, Intel PM45 Express chipset, SATA HD, DVD-RW/CD-RW combo drive.

Method: iPC 10.5.6 .

  • Video: ATI Mobility HD3430 - works only 1024x768
  • Ethernet: neither Marvell 88E8072 neither Intel 5100 wireless works
  • Sound: AD1984 - internal speakers are working, headphone speakers not, mic internal or external - nothing

What works?

Basic video, USB, disk and CD/DVD, for sound output and keyboard you have to apply patches AD1984 and PS2 keyboard (and it's smart to apply patch for UUID error also) . .

HP DV 6833US

Method: iDeneb 1.4 (10.5.6)

What doesn't work

  • Wireless - Intel 4965 - No Known Drivers that work. Only iwidarwin has a driver and right now in its experimental stage it will only find networks and give you kernal panic trying to connect.
  • Burner - The TSST Corps DVD+/-RW CD-RW Drive will not burn for me, may for you but you've been warned.
  • Software Updates - While I think this is iDeneb related, software updates wont work, try downloading anything you need from there off of either Apple or Download.com.
  • Firewire Port - Errors out when booting in verbose mode, you will see the error, it wont work but who really uses firewire anyways?

What Works with extra hunted drivers

  • Sound - After hunting it down, there is a driver, if i find a link to it again i will post. It will also not mute.

What works LAN Card Setup fine, driver in iDeneb *Selected no Video Driver, still works fine *TrackPad and Keyboard both setup up fine w/o additional kexts *USB, Fine *QuickPlay Volume Controls, Fine

Things not tested - *Modem *VGA Port *S-Video Port *Expansion Port *SD Card Reader .

I initially installed the included seatbelt kext, but it didn't solve the dmg mounting issue. Then i found a link for how to replace the included seatbelt kext with the seatbelt 10.5.5 that matched with the version of the Voodoo kernel i was running. Following those instructions worked, and dmgs are mounting fine now. ** The above setting give me no problem with dmg mounting issue.

Two issues that I'm having are:

-I wasn't able to find a driver for the wired gigabit network card ** Use AppleBC5751 will let you use LAN

-Video playback doesn't work due to constant stuttering. Not the occasional stutter, complete, no frame rate, no audio stuttering. I read a link that it may have to do with the AC97 audio driver. I haven't been able to find a fix. . . . . . . ** No problem with the above setting

   Video Fix:(found on thinkpads.com forum)
            1. Install the base system. When the system reboots, you'll need to stop it when it prompts for startup options.
            2. Start in single user mode, using -s
            3. mount -uw /
            4. rm -r /system/library/extensions/AppleIntelGMAX*.*
            5. exit
            You'll start using the stock VGA drivers.
            Using 0SX86Tools (be sure to install), load the x3100 drivers from the site.
            Reboot and it worked . . . . .

10. Go buy a retail copy of Mac OS X Leopard.

Apple Update - DO NOT Install

- DO NOT DO - Airport Update Patches!!!! This will cause the wireless to stop working!!! - DO NOT DO - Any OS X version updates 10.5.X - This will likely Brick your laptop!!!!

ThinkPad X60t (Type 6363-A7G)

  • Installed using iATKOS 5i (10.5.5, updated to 10.5.6 through official channels) with the following customization options:
    • EFi V9 Bootloader
    • AppleDecrypter
    • SMBIOS-EFI Air
    • no custom kernel
    • x86 ACPI (needed for PS/2 support or keyboard and trackpoint will not work after install)
    • Intel GMA950 b
    • Intel AHCI SATA (without it it will still work if the laptop BIOS is set to 'compatible' instead of 'AHCI'
    • Disabler.kext (probably not needed)
    • NTFS 3G rw driver (not needed if you don't use NTFS)
  • commented out reference to hardware (like this: "<-- <string>pci8086,27b9</string> -->") that gives the ThinkPad insomnia in the following two files:
    • /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleACPILPC.kext/Contents/Info.plist
    • /System/Library/Extensions/AppleLPC.kext/Contents/Info.plist
    • /Extra/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleACPILPC.kext/Contents/Info.plist (had to do this on my second attempt to get a fully working OSX on my thinkpad, wasn't there the first time?)
  • ( or just simply delete AppleACPILPC.Kext file from the plugin director of AppleACPIPlatform.txt and AppleLPC.kext file completely)
  • installed Smart Scroll to emulate Trackpoint scoll button behaviour with the following settings: enable Grab Scroll with Button 3, scroll without moving cursor and reverse both X and Y axis
  • ( smart scroll does not work on iPC 10.5.6)
  • installed UPEK Protector Suite to be able to use the fingerprint reader (works and is detected without additional hardware). Can not enroll fingerprints that have already been enrolled under other OS'es. Which means you can not use the same fingers for different OS'es if you dual boot. If you only use MAC OS X, remember to wipe all fingerprints before uninstalling Windows.
  • installed AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext to enable the battery icon in the menu bar

Not Working OOB

  • Wifi. This ThinkPad comes with an Intel PRO Wireless 3945 wireless mini pci-e card that isn't supported. Work is being done on an open source driver called iwiDarwin, but the PRO Wireless 3945abg version is not yet working. Bought an official Apple Airport Extreme PRO card (Atheros AR5008 chipset) which works great (after flashing a hacked BIOS), but giving problems under XP, so am going to buy an official Lenovo AR5008 card to get everything under XP working. It's easier to get that one working on OSX than it is to get the Apple one working under XP with Thinkvantage Access Connections and hardware switch.
  • Touchscreen. This ThinkPad model comes with the non multitouch screen with high resolution (1400x1050). A piece of free software from Thinkyhead can enable the touchscreen on tablet notebooks (version 2.0b16 works with iATKOS, previous versions don't. I can't get it to work (yet), somehow it doesn't see my tablet.
  • SD Card Reader. Tried usign the IOSDHCIBlockDevice.kext, which others have had success with, but inserting an SD Card will crash the system.
  • On-Screen Display. On-Screen Display for the volume buttons does not work. Not suprisingly, since it needs software for that.
  • ( you can make it work with Proxi from Griffin Technology page to map the volume button to anything eg. f2-f4)
  • Hibernate. Installed the Deep Sleep widget, it goes to sleep, but doesn't seem to write anything to the hard disk and thus only goes to normal sleep. DSDT patcher borked with a compile error, so can't try that.

Not Tested

  • PCMCIA/PC Card Slot
  • Modem . . . . . . . .

    • Keyboard/mouse (need to select ps/2 fix)
    • Bluetooth
    • Usb
      I've still not found a solution to the apple-british keyboard layout
  • Working after tweaks
    • Graphics (intel X3100)
      I had to fiddle with various kext versions to stop it blanking after boot when not in safe-mode - see [8]
  • Not working
    • intel 4956 agn wireless - listed in iPC setup, but the package is just an svn snapshot of iwidarwin, which is far from ready

After installation is complete battery gauge is missing and it doesnt detect any battery, so you must add AppleACPIBatteryMAnager.kext, repair permissions and reboot, worked like a charm, here

not working: card reader, headphones, microfone, scroll and sleep mode (shutdown/restart work fine) working: erverything else.

wireless switch button works but you can't turn it back on with the button, you must reboot to turn on again.

after this, you can do all updates @ apple.com including 10.5.6 like a real mac and it doesnt crush/panic, kept all system; its faster than windows & been using for one week. .

Method: OSX86 Universal 10.5.6

  • MotherBoard Intel
  • Video Intel GM 965 - works, see howto below
  • Sound Works
  • Intel Core2 Duo T8300 2.40 GHz, 400 MHz Front Side Bus, 3MB Level 2 Cache
  • RAM 2 GB of RAM
  • LCD 10.2" 1280 x 800
  • Keyboard works
  • Touchpad works
  • HDD SATA, no problem
  • DVD Recognized as a burning device (not tested though)
  • Modem Not installed (probably not recognized?)
  • Ethernet Works out of the box
  • Wi-Fi 4965AGN not operational (but drivers are under development)
  • USB Works out of the box
  • Bluetooth Recognized (not tested)
  • FireWire Recognized (not tested)

Video (Intel GM965) is a bit tricky: The display works straight away during the installation but when booting from the hard disk, the screen won't work directly: you'll get white with black bars, which is due to the driver being unable to read EDID from the monitor, hence using a crap resolution.

To workaround this, install with the following device list and use SwitchResX to provide a working resolution:

  • kernel 9.5.0
  • Laptop display (but not X3100)
  • Intel ICHX SATA
  • ALC 262
  • Intel ProSet/Wireless 4965 (even though it doesn't work actually)
  • Patched USB drivers
  • Apple ACPIBatteryManager
  • Apple ACPIPowerSource
  • Power Management Package
  • IOPCIFamily kext Patched
  • PS/2 Mouse fix
  • Patch DSDT with NewHPET
  • Apple SMBIOS - 27 Rev3 800 MHz
  • Chameleon with SMBIOS/DSDT
  • Applications that you wish...

When booting from the hard disk, use the -x option (Safe Mode), which will force the screen in 1024x768.

Install SwitchResX (using a USB stick for instance) and run the SwitchResX daemon, then go to SwitchResX control panel and use the following details:

  • Hsync Range: 31 to 108 (MHz)
  • VSync Range: 56 to 85 (Hz)
  • Pixel Clock: 60 to 80 (MHz)
  • Width: 1280
  • Height: 800
  • Fequency: 60 (Hz)

Also create a custom resolution with much more detailed resolution information in the 'custom' tab:

  • width: 1280
  • height: 800
  • Frequency: 60.20 (exepcted to modify itself to 60.12)
  • timing mode: CVT-RB

Click Apply and Save (alt+s) In the General tab, activate the run of SwitchResX at boot time and save. Activate Mac OS auto-login, reboot. You should be able to use the screen in 1280x800.

Note: in Safe mode the only possible resolution in SwitchResX (avaiable in the active tab) is 1024x768. It is impossible to get 1280x800 in Safe mode. But in normal mode, by running SwitchResX at boot, the correct resolution will be used

The guide i made here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/f181/72783.htm#post410778

Will tell you how to do it step by step XxX Universal 10.5.6 distro used

Toshiba Equium A100-02L (Satellite P100)

Model No. PSAAQE-00P00KAV

Ok I have installed it, and after much trial and error ( about 10 installs) I have a very good install which I am very happy with. It is as stable as my Samsung NC10

Install image


Change the setting in the BIOS ( This is very Important otherwise OSX keeps restarting) In the Advanced Page Change Execute-Disable Bit Capability to Available ( was Not Available)

Start setup , and at the customize screen select the following

Optional system kexts ->smbiosResolver

Chipset Support ->ICHx Chipset Support ->New ICHx (ICH10)

GraphicDrivers ->Intel GMA Graphics->GMA950->GMA950

AudioDrivers OtherAudioControllers->AppleAzaliaAudio

PowerManagement -> ACPIBattery

Others ->PCCARd Fix ->IOPCMCIAFamily.kext ->KeyboardPrefPane 10.5.5 ->TrackpadPrefPane Fix

Then Install OSX

I also then added the UK keyboard layout form the NC10 page here


Everything is working Except

LAN... I tried all kinds of kexts including the one on the install disk for the intel pro/100 VE, even folling some posts to edit he files and inserting the Vendor info etc, I still have had no luck...If anyone has success , please let me know TIA

Wireless intel pro wireless 3945ABG ... No Drivers available, I have replaced with a Dell 1490 card which cost £14 . It was really easy to install, It is located under the keyboard, and involves removing 4 screws...takes about 5 minutes...so now is all working lovely

SD Card ...Not tried, but apparently doesn't work...I'm not bothered about this really.

So all the rest pretty much works, I get about 2 hours 15 mins out of the battery, 2 cores are active and it scores 1128 on the GeekBench results site

Sleep works fine, and even sleeps when connected to the power supply (unlike my NC10), the only problem, is that on waking up, for some reason it looks like the '7' key is stuck ( which it isn't) but all you have to do is drop the cursor in a text field (I use Spotlight) and you will see the 7's apearing, press any key, and the 7's stop... now you can carry on as normal... bit of a pain, but its OK.

Hopefully people discussing this and other intel chipset based Toshs here

Toshiba Equium A200-1a7 (Satellite A200)

Model No. PSAE8E

Install image: iPC 10.5.6 (but guess that also other are working)

Customization settings:

Kernels: 9.4.0 StageXNU Universal Kernel Video Driver: NOTHING! Chipset Driver: Intel ICHx SATA Drivers Audio Driver: AppleAzaliaAudio Ethernet Driver : Realtek R1000 Wireless Driver:Intel PROSet/Wireless 4965 Fixes and Patches: PS/2 Keyboard Fix (IMPORTANT!!) Applications: All

After you get the Successful Install screen, click reboot, as the notebook powers down & back up again remove the installation DVD and press the F8 function key.

And now most important...

1. Start in Safe Mode by entering -X at the boot: prompt. Let the system fully boot. (If keyboard problem check PS\2 kext)

Complete the registration stuff as you see fit.

2. Delete (Trash) the following file "System\Library\Extensions\ATIRadeonX2000.kext"

3. Reboot

And there you go. Everything works! No need to enter -s, -v, -x or anything else.

Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527

Distro: XxX 10.5.6

In customize button, select the following packages:

Optional system kexts

  • smbiosResolver

Chipset Support

  • ICHx Chipset Support
  • New ICHx (ICH10)


  • Intel GMA Graphics->GMA950->GMA950


  • OtherAudioControllers->AppleAzaliaAudio


  • AtherosWireless


  • ACPIBattery


  • PCCARd Fix
  • KeyboardPrefPane 10.5.5
  • AppleACPIPlataform

The atheros wireless will not work until you download and install the latest AirPort update from Apple's site. After installing, just reboot and it will start working. No need to edit files or doing any other thing. Remember to enable in BIOS the option "Execute Bit Disable" or it will keep rebooting every time you try to start the system.

I haven't tested wired network. SD Card reader didn't work. . . . . .

When attempting installation using IPC OSX86, installation failed, repeatedly freezing with "waiting for root device" prompt.

Note: This is my 13th! and final install, the issues listed below seem to have no hope.

  • Sleep does not work, (freezes screen).
  • Synaptics Trackpad has no "scroll" function.
  • A few applications, such as Photobooth and FrontRow, do not run (on my setup).
  • Battery life shortened by roughly 1/3 compared to previous XP installation (worth it).

Toshiba Satellite P305-8837

Install image: iPC 10.5.6 Final

Customization settings:

Kernels: 9.4.0 StageXNU Universal Kernel / AppleACIPBatteryManager / Clamshell Display Support/ Dualboot Time Sync / Seatbelt 10.5.5/ Shutdown/Restart fix/ PS/2 Keyboard fix / OSx86 Tools / Kext Helper b7 / Pacifist

After you get the Successful Install screen, click reboot, as the notebook powers down & back up again remove the installation DVD and press the F8 function key. boot with "-f -s".

When you get to the shell prompt type

mount -uw /

mkdir /drivers

mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMA* /drivers


Then you you can finish the install process. Once this is done connect an external monitor. Then use Kext Helper to reinstall all the GMAX3100 files in the /driver directory and reboot.

You will see the wallpaper on the external monitor but not the dock or menus.

1. with external monitor connected, click anywhere in external monitor to ensure finder is selected 2. press shift-alt-a 3. type "sys" 4. press alt-o 5. type "displays" 6. hit enter 7. at this point you should get the window to change resolutions 8. click gather windows 9. set both internal and external monitors to correct resolutions (if 1280x800, set to 1280x768 first - use SwitchResX when all is working to get proper [email protected]) 10. click on Arrangement in the display props to change the external monitor to be the primary monitor by dragging the menu bar to external monitor.

Once you do this final step the external becomes the primary display.

I also fine it useful to use VNC to connect to my Hackintosh sometimes when a window pops up on my laptop display and I cannot see it. Just got to System Props > Sharing > Screen Sharing to turn on the VNC server. Then click Computer Settings to set the VNC login password for the VNC connection.
