Kalyway 10.5.2 penultimate Install ;)

First of all what’s with the post title man!

Well i cant say that its my best and successful install of mac os leopard on my XPS 1210 and i might mess up again (Nth + 1 time ;)) so i thought to name it as such.

My config

Dell xps 1210

CPU 1.83

FSB 533 RAM 1024 Dual channel

All works except for the camera and card reader.


I got Dual Cores [work around]

I got sound.__________________________________________

My procedure is ….

Boot from 10.5.2 DVD [kalyway which can be found on tbp]

– vanilla kernel ( kernel + ACPI FIX)

– nvidia driver NVInject Laptop [my nvcap for external is

– efi mbr

After installation, we need to boot “safely” with cpus=1 and fsb=166 ( for the choopy audio, ONLY on 667Mhz MB ),

you can add it to your com.apple.boot.plist.


what we have:

-QE working

– wifi/ethernet working

– bluetooth working

– sleep working

– Powermanagement.

what we DON’T have:

– Dual core.

– audio from speakers.

when booted, you download the following list of files :

– AppleHDAPatcher

– sigmatel9221.txt  [find both in rar here]

– Powermanagement.bundle (from this attachment on this message, posted by others before on this topic)

– AppleACPIPlatform.kext ( comes from another topic on this forum, it’s iAktos ACPI kext, on the attachement)

when download finished. firstly use AppleHDAPatcher with the sigmatel9221.txt explained before on the topic.

reboot, you will have sound from speakers ^^.

delete your /System/Library/Extensions.mkext.

repair permissions of your disk, and reboot.

you will have Powermanagement with the icon battery status ^^.


what we have:

-QE working

– wifi/ethernet working

– sound (only on jack output)

– bluetooth working

– sleep working

– audio from speakers/jack.

what we DON’T have:

– Dual core.

So, finally, the dual core ^^. I think that all that have tried on the m1210 have seen that, when you boot without cpus=1, 2 things

can happen randomly, you can get a “unknown sigfpe code 1” at boot (in this case your computer reboots) or you can get your system to boot, but unusable because of extreme lag, IN THAT CASE : PUT YOUR COMPUTER TO SLEEP after booting, then wake

him up, and the system will then work smoothly WITH BOTH CORES ACTIVE ^^

now the glitch is u need to sleep it everytime but that can be cumersome as the muse keeps freezing every second so i got u the keyboard shortcuts for sleep option+command+eject[F12]

found it here

I guess XPS 1210 is the most used hackintosh ever 😉
