Plans for Empire EFI v1.09

I would like to discuss plans for my upcoming Empire EFI v 1.09. Before I get into that , I would like to take this time and opportunity to thank everyone who have helped to make this project going along , every one of you in any way that you’ve managed to help me and the community to.
Currently as we do know that Empire EFI makes it easier for those who are on Windows to boot and install Retail copies of Snow Leopard ($29) on a PC. The main objective of this is that its to replace complicated method of installation such as USB Installation method whereby its not possible for someone to do if he/she does not own a mac. Apart from that , the disc would serve as a recovery disc in an event of kext (Drivers) mess up. Suppose if you’ve installed something incompatible which renders OSX86 useless , its possible to use this disc or even the retail disc to recover back your files and fix it up. These are the current objectives. However starting from V1.09 , I’ve new plans and visions as well and for that I would also love to hear your feedback (your thoughts and opinion) on how we should improvise it. Anyhow lets take a look at my (more like our) plan :-

  • Streamlining it to One CD (eliminating the need of having multiple iso for certain motherboards , instead having it one one disc for modern motherboards)
  • Making sure user learns something (as its the main objective of OSX86 , the reason why newbies don’t get help or gurus don’t want to help them is that some of them are just expecting to be spoon fed. Right from a-z , i know it can be challenging but my ultimate aim is to make sure someone is knowledgeable enough to pass on the knowledge on how to fix dsdt , kexts without the need of installer or automated solution)
  • Translating into other languages (making it a localised version , thus making it easier for non-native english speakers to understand and follow and possibility spread the knowledge to their peers)

These are some of the reasons , especially the second objective. I just hope it becomes a reality , as I would love to see more and more knowledgeable users in the community as it can be an asset to us all . The problem that the community is facing is that we do lack of knowledgeable users and not to mention users who fail to follow simple instructions. I am not sure what else I could. I do also want folks to pick up basic dsdt fixing skills and basic Terminal skills , so that in an event of mess-up its possible for them to know how to recover , just like they would do it in windows with similar tools. For me the most important aspect is knowledge. Knowledge is the key for everything. Its been stressed in every religion and in every culture. I just want to share the knowledge and make folks sufficient knowledgeable enough , so that they can keep the ball rolling.  Anyhow if you have something to add , please do not hesitate to comment.
God (or “The Atom” if you’re an atheist) bless us all !

  1. Nice thoughts I will have to check out EEFI next time I’m doing an install. One ISO to fit all boards sounds like a very good idea & them noobs gotta learn!

  2. Sorry for my english. It’s not my language. French is.
    It’s not a real problem. It’s quite a plus, because it means I can give you a hand localizing Empire EFI in French.
    1
    I think streamlining Empire EFI to one CD should be more a nice to do than a need to do.
    2
    Making users more knowledgeable is a must. Real knowledge is the basic building block of any skill. Making people more knowledgeable is not easy. It’s an art based on chunking informations into small bits and structuring it into meaningful tree structures. Knowledgeable users are more autonomous, can help themselves, and can give help to newbies. It seems to me that this point is the most important. Fundamental.
    3
    Translating into other language would be great.
    In conclusion, I would prioritize your three points like this:
    1-> Making users more knowledgeable
    2-> Translating into other language
    3-> Streamlining to one CD
    PS
    I used Empire EFI to install SnowLeopard on a brand new PC.
    It was a piece of cake. Thanks.
    I greatly appreciate your site because I find here more than recipe. I find here real knowledge.

    1. Bien Sur Monsieur
      Would be looking forward
      @ The Rest
      Great idea , but one thing for sure is we can’t do MBR installation as there is no way on earth to modify a read-only DVD media 😛

  3. @pradeesh
    If you speak with me on irc I think I have information useful to you regarding MBR…
    And perhaps (2) empire efi cds would be ok: 1) guid/gpt 2) mbr
    ???

  4. Im looking forward to installing OSX on my computer when the parts arrive thanks to your Empire EFI I wont have to buy an expensive mac. I think 1.9 will be great and I would like to learn how to fix and create my own CD with what I learn here. I am a noob to this and I dont expect to be spoon feed. What I think would be great is a glossery of terms used. For example what is a kext file or the apple.com file etc. I have no idea what these are and many others but I am doing my best to research. If people knew the definitions of what is being taught it is much easier to understand.
    Thanks again for your project! Your hard work and others that have contributed are much appreciated and I hope to learn all this myself one day.

  5. Hello Pradeesh!
    I tried out all Version’s of Empire efi but it seem’s that there is no way to install Retail Snow Leo on the “ASUS P6T”MOBO! It looks like I did something wrong or my system is not supported.Do someone have any experience’s with this(ASUS P6T)MOBO!
    Thanx for any Help!
    Thanx for doing this GOOD Job!!

  6. Thanks for your job
    It ‘s possible to add some drivers to X48 chipset with core2duo E8400
    And for Samsung NC10 laptop : wifi, sound directly

  7. hello pradeesh , thanks for for your great work , all the ideas you mentioned above is great , and there is something i like to know is the mach kernel cause when i install the update 10.6.2 and reboot the os , it says that it cant find the mach kernel so what does it mean and i want to know how to speed up the boot up of osx .Thanks in advance .

  8. hello pradeesh , thanks for your great work , all the ideas you mentioned above is great , and there is something i like to know is the mach kernel cause when i install the update 10.6.2 and reboot the os , it says that it cant find the mach kernel so what does it mean and i want to know how to speed up the boot up of osx .Thanks in advance .

  9. Hello Pradeesh,
    I really admire your work and appreciate your efforts.Thanks a tonne for your great work.
    But I am facing one problem.I have got a MAC Install DVD 10.6.1.This is how it is written on
    DVD.It is not the update DVD.When I use Empire EFI to install SL with this DVD and when I
    select this DVD in Empire EFI screen,the PC reboots.Can you please tell me why this happens?

  10. I think this project is awesome, but i think you must try the people use an original copy of snow leopard, we must contribute to apple in its software if we want to enjoy it.
    and of course we must to make some donation to you.

  11. @sumi:
    The install dvds that come with specific machines will not work with any other type of machine than the one they came with (macpro / macbook / … ) You will need to get the generic update dvd for ~30 Dollars.

  12. HI, I have a new mini-pc with a Zotac IONitx D-E on it… But no Dvd reader… is it possible to boot the entire thing from usb? I know I can install SL from a USB on a MAC… what about empire EFI and SL on a PC?

  13. Hi..
    I have a PC with following specs:
    core2quad Q6600
    ASUS P5Q
    500GB Seagate SATA HDD
    1 GB Corsair 800Mhz
    ATi 3870
    ASUS SATA super drive
    I downloaded empireEFI 1.08 and burnt onto a CD…did everything as said in the guide.
    went to Darth Vader background and then i inserted the Mac OSX Snow Leopard retail disc and then i pressed F5. The disc was loaded and then i selected install Mac Snow leopard.
    After that a screen appeared with black coloured background and on that screen many written line began to appear one after the other. DVD rom kept on loading files till a line appeared and it stopped loading anything and that line was saying:
    ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start – waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out
    does anyone know how to solve this problem???
    i m like a noob to Mac and any help will be highly appreciated.

  14. I would like to make an installer DVD that, instead of only listing install options, would have a multi-tiered install tree.
    The first tier would be all the regular stuff (bootloader, kernels, patches etc.) and would have none or only minimal required options pre selected.
    The second tier would be a list of motherboards (grouped by manufacturer). By clicking on a given board, all of the most optimal choices (including post-install scripts etc.) would be selected for that board that should provide a successful install.
    The third tier would be for all hardware aside from the motherboard (i.e. cards for video, network, etc.) Ideally I would want to build in some intelligence that narrows down this third list depending on what works best with the motherboard already selected, or have some sort of detect feature with a slipstreamed LSPCI funcion.
    This sort of disc would be pretty ambitious to build, and would require a lot of feedback from people having installed SL on their hardware, but I think it could be modularized enough so that there could be a version patch for the disc. A growing database of successful configuration options could be added to the disc as new revisions come out…
    I’d love to see 1.09… once I figure out how to get 1.08 working on my P5KPL-CM (It’s probably some stupid BIOS setting) HELP!!

  15. Dear Pradeesh,
    I have Installed sucessful SL in my PC, Sound Card and Display, Lan &every thing is working perfectly, Now I have some issues in Photoshop CS, When I install photoshop CS in SL, Photoshop is suddenly closed and login screens will come automatically, Is there any solution for this one, or Photoshop CS4 Fix this problem, Kindly reply me

  16. Dear Pradeesh
    first of all thank you for this great work and thank you for your time on this project.
    my question to you and every one who reads this is why is it only psystar that you are flaming for their $50 application instead of supporting them in their case against apple,and not even mention the guys of efi-x and not even touching their usb dongle to know what is and how it works and it costs $280 not $50 for a something that is working, and whats the problem with that ??
    even if they did “”BASE”” their work on the osx86 scene they made it a lot better and easy for the average joe guy.
    dont get me wrong guys here i know the amount of work that the osx86 community have done so we can enjoy the osx on our rigs but its not only psystar remeber EFI-X guys too
    thank you

  17. First of all I just want to say, thank you for this great program. I used the gt200 version and everything worked perfectly, I mean everything, resolution is great, wifi works, I even play games on it. There are a few improvements you could make though:
    Add support for flash drives, my friend gave me Snow Leopard on a flash drive, and I had to go out and buy a disc copy since empire efi didn’t work with the flash drive
    Allow Snow leopard to be installed on MBR partition scheme, I would like to dual boot with windows, but can’t since I must use guid to use this.

  18. Dear Pradeesh,
    I have Installed sucessful SL in my PC, Sound Card and Display, Lan &every thing is working perfectly, Now I have some issues in Photoshop CS, When I install photoshop CS in SL, Photoshop is suddenly closed and login screens will come automatically, Is there any solution for this one, or Photoshop CS4 Fix this problem, Kindly reply me

  19. Pradeesh does aschar have his own blog? I used his x58 install and it worked perfect except when I run the myHack package it adds some things and messes up others. All I want is my NTFS drives to show up and the install will be perfect. But when I install myHack the drives show but I loose my video and LAN settings also the bootloader wont work, I have to boot from the CD every time and choose my OSX drive. Can you please point me in the right direction. I tried looking for instructions on the CD but I cant find anything. I used the Empire_BootCD_x58.iso. I know Cameleon is used for the boot loader so I am researching that now but I cant seem to find the kexts for mounting NTFS hard drives.
    Thanks for any help.

  20. Empire EFI 1.09 needs to have support for nvidia chipsets. I am getting a 790i for christmas and i want to use it for my hackintosh.

  21. Please add a usb tutorial for this including modding the preboot.dmg for extra support. plus you need to change the background image so that i can fee the -f output (white on white=invisible)

  22. Dear,

    Help Help Help Help Help

  23. is there a problem wiht v108 everytime i tried to boot off it.
    i change the dvd with snow leopard and press f5 and then hit enter to install
    and after that it goes back to the same screeen over and over wihtout giving any error

  24. Thank you for your continuing efforts!
    I would very much like to see empire-efi fully usable with a %USB key (no need for burning)
    this would improve speed and ease
    when the intel 5100 works I will surely try this out on my HP DV8-1000

  25. Correct me if I am wrong: EmpireEFI work by loading all kexts from a directory into memory, or does it monitor the OSX install program(lets call it osxin), and when osxin tries to load a kexts, EmpireEFI check to see if it has that file and load it instead?
    Just like to know, can you create a bootable CD that use EmpireEFI to detect what hardware you have in your system and recommend what kexts will be needed?
    or just have a CD with all kexts from the web and let EmpireEFI create a ram disk and copy the only the kexts that your system need and also check the net if there is an up-to-date version of each kexts that will be copied?

  26. Hi,
    I tried all EEFI, but only v1.04 works for me! Actually, it lets me install 10.6 smoothly, thanks Prasys! I’m looking fwd to 1.09, maybe will contain new drivers. Advise: Disable sleep function, it makes the computer stuck. What is not working for me: iHack (the boot-loader directly from HD), net (wired + wireless), and the screen is not at best. Many thanks again, and keep the good work going, you really started the revolution!!!

  27. Hi,
    I have tried efi empire with two notebook with intel GMA 950 and everyone start installation snow leopard there are white screen.Solution?Sorry for my bad english
    Thanks

  28. my comment is awaiting moderation since 23d of December WOW,,and still i cant get an answer from you ?? oh wait let me guess psystar stole the community work right ? and they sell it for 50$ thats too much compared to the 280$ from EFI-X,,i just wounder why you or your community dont dare to talk about efi-x?? you want to be fair and go hard on anyone who steals the “community work” ,,yeah right,
    but again thanks for your great work in the OSX community.

  29. hi there
    question, is there a list of recommended motherboards which are known working fine ?
    have not found any list specific to empire EFI.
    thanks, best regards, Franz

  30. On My machine empire efi dosent detect my snow leopard dvd (i modified it to use mbr and took a few things a bit like the distros so it fits on a 4.7gb dvd)

  31. I would like to test beta AMD versions for you. I use a Dell sc1435 4 core 2ghz opteron. The sata chipset is unsupported in osx (its broadcom) so i use thumb drives and externals.
    Your bootloaders are helping me upgrade from 10.6 to 10.6.2. I need to do that to get my 4670 working:)
    cheers

  32. dkbest :Hi,I have tried efi empire with two notebook with intel GMA 950 and everyone start installation snow leopard there are white screen.Solution?Sorry for my bad englishThanks

    I am having the same issue as dkbest. Empire EFI 1.085 loads fine and when the SL installer exits text mode the screen turns white with nothing on it. The retail DVD (istaller) continues to run and actually accepts one return key input and then a minute later stops. I’m guessing the installer has stopped and is waiting for input. The following is my PC config.
    Toshiba Satellite P105 S6024
    Graphics adapter – Intel GMA 950
    100gig SATA HDD
    Optical – IDE CD/DVD DL Multi Write
    CPU – Intel Core Duo T2050 @ 1.6gig
    Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset
    Ram 2048 667mhz
    Any help would be appriciated…

  33. I just want to say thank you so much for putting this EFI together, and to the genuis who modded it for x58 a big thanks. Here is a video of the 1.02 x58 version running on my Dell XPS 9000/435T (i7-920, GTS240). I think there is a newer x58 version out there, but this one is quick on the boot and everything except line in on my sound works. Again, BIG thanks to all who made this possible.

  34. would like the post-installer could install chameleon with its original theme. (the background and the original and the natural apple loading logo theme not the MyHack’s – “taking the isuck out of the ihack” one which is not so cute). Or maybe you could put your logo little-sized on a corner ¿?. sorry, hehe, just aesthetics… by the other hand. THANKS so much man !! i could install SL with Empire EFI way on a vostro 1310 with no probs. keep on !!

    1. @lilol18 – Kindly pleaser read my other guide on how to change
      @Shadow_Cluster – most likely its related to your graphics card. Can you give me more details about it , thank you

  35. would like to install/run it in VMware Workstation 7+
    Sun’s VirtualBox is supporting EFI, yet haven’t been succeeding to get it go there

  36. @Pradeesh
    tx for the response. Is it the same as on a physical machine, using the physical os x installation disc? Because I got the dmg file on a fsh+ formatted pendrive, which does not boot after emipre efi. Also having the dmg file mounted on a virtual drive does not work, though empire efi does boot well from virtual drive.
    appreciate feedback

  37. @Pradeesh
    made physical FSH+ disc , with UltraISO in WIN 7 64bit. Verfied the content with MacDrive on WIN 7.
    Empire EFI is booting well in VMware (empireEFIv1085.iso/legacyempire_efi1085.iso), recognising the 10.6.2 client installation disc, which is also booting up. But then…
    quote
    patched dmi table
    no dsdt replacement found. leaving acpi data as is
    starting darwin x86
    press any key to continue
    unquote
    by doing so the system reboots but not reading the darwin installlation disc…
    Am I missing something?

  38. mb : gigabyte g41m-es2l
    vg : gt210 512
    ram : 2go
    …cannot even boot with all both content in “empire_efi_v108_4_ati48xx_n_nvgtx2xx.zip” … not so effective Empire Efi …
    ( It match perfect with Rebel Efi ! )
    ….

  39. Hi, I have problem on x58 asus mobo chipset
    asus rampage II gene
    cpu i7 920
    vga 9500gt
    i test all ways, everythings, i think problem causes from ide or sata ports, tested on ahci and ide, nothing dosent works,
    tested ideneb 10.5.7- iAtkos 10.5.7- Retail Snow leopard 10.6 image from USB, and empire 1.02,1.04,1.08, and….
    whats the problem?

  40. hey there,
    thank you for your work in the community. i really do like the idea of increasing the general knowledge bar for the average user so we can be able to help ourselves. This would be great for me ive done tons of reading but am finding it very difficult to consolidate all the information together to where its cohesive enough to get a good grasp as to what is actually going on, guides are good starting points but comprehension is better. Ive still not been successful in getting a snow leopard install on my rig (problematic mobo foxconn bloodrage, and troublesome graphics gtx 280’s in sli) so being able to understand whats going on would be amazing.

  41. Sorry mate for the added comment but
    im able to get past the black screen use during boot when i replace my gtx 280’s(have tried just the single card) with an old nvidia 7600 gt, i have tried the special distro of Empire for gtx2xx cards but im still having the same issue(black screen) if i was to get snow leopard installed would i be able to use gfxutils to get the hex strings i need to get my graphics cards working?(i hear that it needs to be done in leopard to get the correct values) i have a leopard install on another pc could i do it from there and the just modify the boot.plist in the leopard install with those output files? or does it need to be on the system with that hardware (ie the graphics cards i would like working) installed? sorry if this isnt something you could point me in the direction of i just thought i should ask thx

  42. hi Pradeesh,
    Thanks for your Empire! I can tell that it works on patched VirtualBox. And Mac OS X will be supported on next VirtualBox release.
    But I have some problems installing on my PC. The Hazard’s SL works but I have USB problems. But when I try to install with Empire EFI, I get USB errors, something like – can not enumerate a device connected to USB port…or smthg. Same thing with RebelEFI. Other problem is when it loads(if it loads) the mouse and keyboard does not work. I have tried USB wireless keyboard&mouse, USB keyboard, Mouse with the old connector, turned off/on Legacy in Bios – nothing helps. I thought to solve this problem I need to add VoodooPS2 & IOUSBFamily kexts to Preboot.dmg. Could you tell me how to do this?
    My specs:
    Abit I-S71 Mobo
    C2D [email protected]
    SiS 671MX/968(MuTiol Media IO) chipsets
    As I said my machine works quite good with Hazards SL only with USB wireless keyboard/mouse problems. LAN & DSL work out of the box, sound with VoodooHDA, fakesmc, PlatformUUID, Chameleon RC3.
    But I really want the retail. Can you help me in this situation?

  43. Hi @Prasys
    i have a question, can i create my own installer with one of your empire EFI boot discs? for example, im using the EmpireEFI1085_AMD
    all works well after i install, but im not able to dual boot with the internal hard drive nor an external hard drive for installing or booting after install, all boot is done with empire EFI, how can i port these kexts or dsdts to my usb installer or boot so that i can boot after installing? already tried with myhack, chameleon and even EasyBCD according to some videos posted on youtube with Empire EFI users but all of them give me a panic and it restarts the pc, my notebook specs are:
    Gateway NV53
    Chipset
    *AMD M880G Chipset (its working ok but only detects 1Gb RAM and one Core)
    Processor
    AMD Athlon™ II X2
    Graphics
    *ATI Radeon HD 4200 (using graphics enabler only)
    Built-in 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet (works)
    Atheros AR5B93 WiFi (Works)
    Im going to try some other ways but i would like to know how to create my own Distro or installer adding the what ever is in: EmpireEFI1085_AMD that makes it boot fine and work without a panic…
    BTW
    i have a working OSX with MSI X58M board, i7 920 CPU with EVGA Nvidia 9500 GT card working 100% thanks to Empire EFI for iCores
    Good Day!

    How did you get your internet card to work. I have the same computer as you and same Atheros AR5B93 card. I can’t seem to find the kext. What distro did you use?

  46. I have a pentium 4 540 and currently i don’t think that you have any empire efi’s that work for the pentium 4 540 and so far no method that i have been able to find on the internet allowed me to install snow leopard on my computer (yes, i know my computer is old) but will anyone please tell me a site that shows me how to install snow leopard on my computer (i also dont have VT so that rules out the option of using vmware) or if you can build an EFI for pentium 4 540 please

  47. excuse my bad english, i’m french.
    How to contact you ?
    I have a wordpress account but it doesn”t work
    i tried to intall my mac os x snow leopard with a hp pavilion dv2 without success. (with EmpireEFI4AMD.iso)
    thanks

  48. Make sure 1.09 BootCD uses all 4 cores, 4GB Ram, and please, if possible, support for NVidia GT2xx series cards.

    How did you get your internet card to work. I have the same computer as you and same Atheros AR5B93 card. I can’t seem to find the kext. What distro did you use?

    I used the EmpireEFI1085_AMD boot cd
    Good day!

  50. Thank you very much Prasys!
    And keep up the good work.
    It will be really nice to install from original SL DVDs, even if Apple license doesn’t allow that use.
    And yes, knowledge is key.
    Hum… I wonder right now how could I possibly customize the boot image… 😆 (I will take a look at it as soon as I have some spare time, maybe next weeekend.)
    Best regards!
    PD : Please don’t forget us, AMD users! 😉

  51. just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you, I got a new alienware 14 laptop with i7 and nothing was working to get iOS snow leopard .iso to boot in VirtualBox.. finally I downloaded your empire_efi_v1.02_X58 and it booted up fine. I am a javascript developer and an iOS/Android app developer, if you need any help with work related to these two areas, let me know as I want to donate $ or time as a thank you for your Empire EFI work.
