Toshiba Satellite A135 S7404 Hackint0sh
As with the Dell D630, I decided to play around with a Toshiba that was laying around. The Toshiba Satellite runs PheonixBIOS V1.60 and required different settings so this time, I am including the BIOS adjustments to help make the install much easier for anyone reading.
Boot with Kalyway_10.5.2_DVD_Intel_Amd
Restart your computer and hold down the F2 key to enter BIOS settings.
Change your BIOS settings to comply with Apple standards.
QUIET BOOT: ENABLED
LEGACY USB SUPPORT: ENABLED
EXECUTE-DISABLE BIT CAPABILITY: DISABLED
DYNAMIC CPU FREQUENCY MODE: DYNAMIC
BUILT-IN LAN: ENABLED
WAKE-UP ON LAN: DISABLED
WAKE-UP ON KEYBOARD DEVICE: DISABLED
CRITICAL BATTERY WAKE-UP: ENABLED
LOW BATTERY ALARM: ENABLED
PANEL CLOSE ALARM: DISABLED
SYSTEM BEEP: DISABLED
BOOT SEQUENCE:BUILT-IN HDD
Restart your computer holding the F12 key and boot from CD.
When prompted, hit the F8 key to enter startup options and type in –v noapic cpus=2 and hit enter.
The length of time generally depends on your system configuration and how much RAM you have. The more RAM the better 😀
Install Welcome Screen (This is where things get just a bit tricky)
The break-dancer image was added by Kalyway and if you click on more options, you can learn more.
FORMAT YOUR HARD DRIVE
- Click on Utilities at the top of the screen in the menu bar
- Go to Disk Utilities
- Choose the main hard drivE
- Click the Erase tab
- Click on the volume format drop down menu and choose OS Extended Journaled
- Name the partition whatever you like, I called mine haxint0sh just for the hell of it
- DON’T FORGET to click on the options button and chose GUID Partition then go for it
Once partitioned, exit out by clicking the red X button and it should take you back to installation screen
Choose “Continue” and you will be shown the Agreement page
You will be shown the available options for drives to install on, you should see the one you just partitioned.
- If you don’t see one, it’s ok, you can go back to the Disk Utility and reconfigure
After you click continue and go to the Summary page WAIT!!!You MUST CUSTOMIZE!!
If you don’t the install will not properly function
Click on the Customize button and make the choices you require based on your specific hardware.
If the first install doesn’t work, you probably need to go back and modify the customization options
Click Done and then Install
Voila!! The installer will primarily check your disk, you can skip the process but I recommend you let it do its thing. Once inspected, the disk won’t need to be inspected again for additional installs.
Once you see a screen with a green checkmark, you did it!! OS X has been installed on your computer.
You’ll see a fancy video saying welcome in several languages and then be prompted to set up the basics.
Follow all the prompts
Add your info if you prefer
ENJOY YOUR HACKINTOSH 🙂
