HowTo: Install OsX86 Leopard (iATKOS v7) on Dell Inspiron 1545

24 luglio 2009

OK, this is not a complete howto, since installation is really simple..:

1. Get your copy of iATKOS v7 from the green daemon and burn it.

2. Boot from your drive, if system hangs and reboots, try booting the DVD with “-f” option.

3. Follow the installation steps, format the desired partition (previously created with some other program, and set to type AF).

4. Choose “Custom” installation, and select the drivers/patches as follow:

- iATKOS v7 Main System

- Bootloader: Chameleon v2

- X86 Patches:

  • /extra directory
  • DSDT
  • Decrypters: AppleDecrypt
  • Smbios Drivers: NONE (chameleon2 replaces all)
  • Kernel: 9.7.0 Kernel Voodoo
  • Disabler

- Drivers:

— VGA: NONE

— System:

  • SATA/IDE:
    AHCI
    Intel SATA/IDE  (maybe not required?)
  • Intel Speedstep:
    Speedstep driver
    Throttling control
  • Sound:  Select NONE,  you will install later (you can try Voodoo HDA, but you will miss volume control!)
  • PS/2 Mouse/Keyboard: Voodoo PS/2 Driver (without trackpad, cause this version (0.2.1) is still buggy)
  • Laptop Battery
  • Ext2fs (optional, select if you have linux partitions)
  • NTFS-3G (optional, select if you have windows partitions)

— Network:

  • Wired: Broadcom BCM440x
  • Wireless: Broadcom BCM43xx

- Languages: your favorite one ;-)

- Post-Install Actions

5. When the installation finishes, reboot (again, if any errors, try with “-f”) and install the following Audio driver, through Kext Helper:

Driver Audio (mirrored from the original here, must register)

——–

6. To get the infamous 1366×768 resolution, it’s a bit more complicated. You need a working linux installation, and to replace the bootloader with GRUB2, patched with a modded 915resolution, like explained in Consono method.

I recommend you to use the already patched grub2, including GM45 additional patches, getting from here: grub2 patched

Inside the archive you’ll find a grub.cfg example, supposing you have installed Windows on sda1, Leopard on sda3, ARCH Linux on sda5, and that you have copied the “boot” file from chameleon package to the root directory of Leopard partition. Otherwise you can change the “multiboot (hd0,3)/boot” line specifing the right partition/path of the file.

For completeness, here is the patched 915resolution standalone script: 915resolution patched

    Hello =].
    I am also trying to get OSX up and running on a 1545.
    I followed a different guide originally for the 1525, but everything works fine still, although..
    I’m having real trouble getting the 1366×768 resolution using the GRUB2 bootloader.

    I’m not exactly great with command line stuff..
    I tried installing ArchLinux but couldn’t get it to start up,
    so I tried Ubuntu and that worked fine. Just, I couldn’t get the patched GRUB2 to install properly. The default GRUB2 bootloader is still there and instead of a grub.cfg or whatever, it’s a menu.lst in /boot/grub.

    Is there any easier way of getting this done?
    Or could you give kinda, step by step instructions on that part?
    Running OSX on 1024×768 is so ugly xD.
    I tried looking at the long forum post but there’s so much of it and even half of that I don’t exactly understand.

    Thanks =].

    Hi,

    I did all these steps and it works !
    But, I have a different graphic card :
    - ATI Radeon Mobility HD 4330

    I don’t manage to have graphics on normal boot.
    It’s ok when I boot in safe mode.

    Do you have an idea to fix it ?

    Thanks a lot for this guide,
    Regards,

    Leo.

    Hi i have a question .
    The grapihic card you mentioned is Intel 4500MHD but the graphic card from dell site is ntel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD are both these same and is it 100% working without problems?

    I am asking as i am planning to get one for hackintoshing

    can anyone suggest me whether the dell inspiron 1545 with this configuration is perfectly hackintoshable?

    Dell Inspiron 15, Intel® Pentium® Dual Core T4200 (2.0GHz), 15.6″ WXGA, 3GB RAM, 320GB, 8X CD / DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive), Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD, 802.11b/g, Webcam, 6-Cell Battery

    Also can i be able to dual boot windows 7 with it?

    And also does webcam work in osx?

    • deviato
      27 ottobre 2009 alle 6:48 pm

      Is hackintoshable, but not perfectly, as you can read..
      The graphics card is supported in vesa mode, without acceleration. The web camera works perfectly. VGA out works pressing Fn+F1 at boot, but you have to pass a different resolution at boot, for example with: “Graphics Mode”=1280x1024x32 (because we got 1366×768 by default, for the internal LCD). Bluetooth and card reader don’t work, and.. this model doesn’t have a firewire, so it cannot make it a perfect hackintosh..

    Is there a procedure to dual boot with windows or is it just mac ?

      28 ottobre 2009 alle 1:00 pm

      Once you have the partitions, you can install whatever os you want.
      I have WinXP, Leopard and Arch Linux. Grub2 is able to boot everything.
      The only thing to remember, is to put Leopard in a primary partition, in a secondary it wouldn’t work.

      31 ottobre 2009 alle 8:02 pm

      Yes, I think it should work. The chipset is the same, the difference could be on the graphics resolution, I don’t know your hw specs.
      Moreover, in case you have an ATI card, the 1366×768 resolution patch should work too, as reported by Leo.

    the video resolution part is a bit hard to follow the read me in the file too isn’t helpful.
    don’t know how i’m supposed to run the files eg via terminal or even which file to run ??
    you said it must be run from root
    anyway i was just hoping you could break it down step by step on which exact file to run and how to run em

    if they are terminal commands
    please post up exact step by step commands differentiating from the explanations accompanying them. thanks either-ways anyway man

    Native resolution on Dell1545 OSX is a 30 second process now. None of this GRUB cr*p, I hope this post can be updated with the most recent info. There’s a 3100 framebuffer kext to install and a DSDT to replace. Reboot. Boom, native resolution. No Quartz, but who cares.

    @Andy

    If you still have that problem, you have grub legacy installed which is different to grub2. Install a fresh copy of ubuntu 9.10 which comes with grub2 (1.97beta) default.

      Just wait several minutes until your computer start sleeping and then wakeup it. After the wakeup the screen will turn on again. It means to be a screen powersave bug.

    Hi dudes !

    Yesterday I managed to install this version but I had a gray screen at each boot with lines of pixels across but I could boot with “-x”, but even with exactly the same options checked, I don ‘ had no audio, no ethernet, no wifi.
    Now I can not even start the install, because it stops here loading (with apples).
    I have Dell Inspiron 1545, core2duo t6400 @ 2GHz, 4GO RAM & Ati Mobility radeon HD 4300 series.

    If anyone could help me, thanks a lot !

    when i try to install kext with kext helper, kexts doesn’t install. I don’t see its on the list AND the folder. So i don’t have sound, don’t have battery indicator, don’t have native resolution, because i’m not able to install kext. If someone can help me!
