    How to Install Retail (vanilla) Mac OS X Leopard on P.C. | Boot-132 a replacement of E-FIX. | iHackintosh Your's Daily tech Savoy


    Boot-132 made for run Retail (vanilla) Mac OS X Leopard in non-Mac computers and get updates direct from Apple website. The advantage of this is that EFI-strings (i.e. for graphics/video, audio, lan, boot parameters, etc.) can be loaded on boot w/out touching the original/vanilla com.apple.Boot.plist.

    David Eliott has just released a new version of his modified boot-132 bootloader.One of the new things it can do is to load kexts from an .img file which contains kexts (or even an mkext) and boot Leo.That means you can have two mkexts, one folder with kexts on the .img file and the folder with kexts from your installed systemor even two folders with mkexts.


    How does it work?


    Basically, you create a flat dmg with the kexts in a folder and the bootloader will load them for you. This means quite a lot;you can boot from a retail Leo DVD and install it, you can update straight from apple, you can reinstall and not have to addthe same kexts to your install every time. The bootloader behaves like the linux kernel: you can use an mboot (a patched syslinuxwas used) compatible bootloader which tells to boot-dfe about the .img file (the ramdisk or initrd, as it's known by the linux users)and boot-dfe is going to use the kexts (or mkext) from it.


    What does it do?


    This new boot-dfe has been tested with the retail Leopard DVD and it can boot, install and run Leopard without having to builda modified DVD.


    what you have to do is.



    #1 - Burn .iso on a CD;


    #2 - Boot this CD;


    #3 - When Darwin prompt appear, eject CD and put Mac OS X Leopard Retail DVD;


    #4 - Press enter (or -v and enter...wherever...)


    #5 - After install, boot using CD boot again and install .kext needed...and usual files.


    #6 - Done!



    For the time being, you cannot have this bootloader on an USB stick and have it boot the Retail Leopard DVD. The reason why thishappens is related to the way the BIOS handles DVDs and optical media: there's no BOOT DEVICE associated with an optical drivewhich the BIOS has not booted from. Basically, this is like the disk swap trick known to the PlayStation gamers.You can already put this on an USB stick/CD/DVD and boot a vanilla install (vanilla= no added kext, no replaced kext on the partition).As usual, this only works for compatible machines(that means you still can't boot a vanilla system on AMD, they need specialised patches).
