About This File

Full package of software i used to run hackintosh(for play a games and web development).

All needed to startup OS X kexts are included into Extensions.MKext(Battery, Sound, Sensors and other).

Contains simple installer script for make bootable flash in terminal mode fast and correct.

It helps if you can run only with boot DVD into installer and have a terminal skills(fast fix bootloader and PBR sectors) gives more fast install.

+ Some security helper scripts for better configurations your system.

Extra folder intended to use with Chimera bootloader and may have an errors with Cham-n, Enoch and others.

Some info about bootsectors:

boot0af

boot0ss

boot1altV3

boot1f32

boot1f32alt

boot1h

boot1h2

fdisk440

boot0af (boot0 Active First) - MBR sector that search for active partition in MBR table (then GPT table). Origin from Apple's boot132 project. This version of boot0af implements hybrid GUID/MBR partition scheme support. Written by Tamás Kosárszky on 2008-03-10

boot0ss (boot0 Signature Scanning) - MBR sector that search for partition with valid PBR signature regardless if it's active or not. Good for Windows that wants to have its partition active. It share the same code as boot0af. Only scanning is done in different order.

boot1h - PBR sector for HFS+ formatted partition. Search for file "boot" in the root of the partiton. Origin from Apple's boot132 project. Written by Tamás Kosárszky on 2008-04-14. This is mod by Slice to support large boot file. Not 440kb as origin but 472k needed to boot Clover-64.

boot1h2 - PBR sector for HFS+ formatted partition with alternative booting with choice of key pressed. File to boot = "boot{key}". Coded by dmazar based on boot1h.

boot1f32 - PBR sector for FAT32 formatted partition. Search for file "boot" in the root of the partiton. Useful for EFI partition or USB stick. Written by mackerintel on 2009-01-26.

boot1f32alt - PBR sector for FAT32 formatted partition with alternative booting with choice of key pressed. File to boot = "boot{key}". Modded by Slice based on

boot1f32 and boot1h2.

p.s.: can't find a better place to share it(very slow internet ... try to reaupload this solution to www.hackintoshzone.com again in few days) ... maby any people from community administration can upload it in this post? thanks...

If you want new drivers(kexts) in kernel caches give me links in this post to download it.

 

In next package release i want to update FakeSMC with removed GPU Sensors and add new configurations for custom load system by flag 'config=someSetting.plist'.

 

You can add your own configuration in Preboot.dmg. Just write it here ... 

 

Any ideas to do it better are welcome!
