Recommended Posts

Hi I'm a noob trying to build a hackintosh out of my dell optiplex gx620. I read that you need a dsdt file to do the job right.

I'm trying to install snow leopard on my dell optiplex gx620. I've been using the iboot method and I've been running into problems. I've gotten snow leopard installed but I don't know how to find my dsdt file for my motherboard and I can't tell what motherboard I have even by looking at it so I'd appreciate any help as possible. So I clicked on easybeast when I went through multishit..and when I went to restart to load from the hard drive, I get stuck on the white apple screen or i I will get stuck in a reboot loop. I've tried some basic stuff like typing in -v or GraphicsEnabler=no and it doesn't work..again I'm a noob so there's a lot I don't know but I'm learning everyday. I can boot from iboot with no problem..but it won't boot up from the hd..I just get stuck in the loop or stuck on the white apple screen..I'm thinking this may have something to do with not having that dsdt file..but I'm clueless on how to make one or if I even need one.


also I I had to remove my graphics card and use the onboard vga port to run iboot. My monitor would shut down if I tried using my video card with a dvi cable..but once I removed it booted with no problem...and I'm trying to install snow leopard 10.6.3 and update to 10.6.8.. Please help

It doesn't work like that, you won't find a DSDT for your board which will solve all your problems, you have to extract the original DSDT and patch it, but you won't be able to use it until the system boots from the HD. Use the verbose boot (-v) when booting the HD to diagnose the problem.

If you can boot using a CD, it's just a matter of finding what's missing for the boot to work from the HD, for this you have to install the boot loader (Chameleon), an Extra folder with basic stuff (SMBIOS, Boot.plist, FakeSMC, etc.) and boot the HD using verbose (-v).
