EmpireEFI 1.085 for OSX 10.6.3 is out

Its that time of the year  – No silly , not Christmas. Its the newest EmpireEFI Release which caters for MacOSX 10.6.3 Retail DVD. Like the previous version , I’ve put a bit more effort on this.

I’ve now released EmpireEFI for OSX 10.6.3 . It includes OSX 10.6.3.1 kernel which allows a lot of newer Core i-series devices such as Mobile Core i3 , i5 , and newer core i7s (both desktop and laptops as well). To make things even easier , I’ve narrowed the versions into Generic , ATI and NVIDIA. Each of these version contains both Legacy version (meant for problematic system) and the normal version). I am not able to test it thoroughly like I used to as I do not own 10.6.3 Retail DVD. However I can assure you that it should work . If it does not , just post a comment here and I’ll try my best to rectify it !

Changelog :-

  • Included 10.6.3.1 Kernel to enable a variety of Core i series processor
  • Included Natit and newer version of Chameleon

Never the less , here are the download links for it :-

Intel ONLY (Empire EFI V1.085) – Generic (Includes both legacy version and normal version)

Intel ONLY (Empire EFI V1.085) – ATI (Includes both legacy and normal version)

An AMD Version and nvidia-intel would be released soon. So stay tuned :P

Alternatively you may want to download older versions from here especially if you’re using AMD processors

  1. The link to the EmpireEFI for older AMD reloads the same page as it’s lining to the tag of EmpireEFI… could you update that link in :

    “Alternatively you may want to download older versions from especially if you’re using AMD processors”

    or post the correct one somewhere? I have an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ and a DFI UT NF3 250 Gb Motherboard and after trying iDeneb and iPC although I could solve some KP problems by disabling SATA and onboard Firewire, now it just gets stuck and after a couple minutes the “spinning” daisy stops spinning” and so far I have been unable to start in -v or -x mode since even using the bootloader it seems to ignore the flags when type them and hit enter…

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I’m having trouble getting the right Kexts for my Hachintosh and would be very grateful for some assistance.

    My system:
    mobo: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R rev. 1.0 F6
    processor: i7 920 2.67 GHz
    Graphics card: XFX ATI Readon HD 5770

    I am trying to install SL on this, somewhat old system, through Empire EFI and Kakewalk, but when I get to step 4 of Kakewlak (Installing bootloader to thumb drive), I get a notice that the restore process that I was trying failed.

    I would really like to install SL through Empire EFI on my system. Would anybody know how I could do this?

    Thank you in advance

  14. I have an intel Core i5 Processor with nvidia optimus technology, empire efi works with it?

  15. Hello,

    Do you know when the nvidia-intel Empire EFI is coming out because nothing will work on my i7 950 with Nvidia geforce GTX295 videocard installed. Every time in the middle of the installation of Mac OSx the screen gets stuck en the installation won’t go further.

    Thanks mate!
