Some month ago I was trying to install Hackintosh on my Dell Inspiron 1545. That was iDeneb DVD. I managed to install it in my laptop. But after installing from that DVD, I couldn’t boot into Mac. I was getting “boot error” message. In that time I was using windows 7 and didn’t know how to fix this issue. So my hackintosh exploration stopped.
Some days ago I managed another ISO of iATKOS v7 and burned it for testing for the second time. I found deviato’s tutorial from here and again installed it. While booting from the DVD I was getting some problems like kernel panic, it’s being hanged with some wired message. But again and again I was trying and finally able to see the installation window. Then I moved forward and opened the disk utility from the installation window. I created a 13GB partition for installing mac and formatted the drive in NTFS format before from GParted from my ubuntu 10.04 installation.
From the Mac disk utility I formatted my 13GB NTFS formatted drive in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) file system. Then I moved forward and installed the Mac OS X leopard successfully. After rebooting I got the same “boot error” message like my previous installation. Again I stopped here, I saw in some blogs to install patched grub2. As I don’t use windows in my laptop, I use ubuntu and the version is 10.04 (lucid lynx) and obviously I use grub2. My ubuntu grub was not there because I installed Mac and it removed my grub. So I booted into ubuntu with a flash USB drive (pen drive) and installed grub2 again to boot into my original installed ubuntu. Again rebooted and logged into my installed ubuntu and ran this command (sudo update-grub) to update my grub to see that if it finds the mac partition, it will be great. And I surprised to see that this update found the Mac installation and added an entry to my grub boot loader. I was really amazed at that time.
