Leopard server validating serial
NOTE: I actually Pre-Formatted mine via a USB connection into two Volumes, with the second Volume as a small 20GB partition to take my patched Mac OS X Installer.That way, i don't need to muck around with USB Flash Drives or any extra Disks and such.WHAT YOU' LL NEED:• A retail Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.x) Install DVD or Disk Image.• A working Mac OS X machine. (See note under Step 1.)• Nawcom's Mod USB app (available here: p=569 )• A spare USB Flash Disk (8GB or more) or any spare USB HDD, HDD, or HDD Partition of 8GB or more.(This is for the installer.)• A HDD drive to install Mac OS X Snow Leopard too.The standard 250GB HDD that ships with your HP Microserver will work just fine.Depending on how much RAM you have installed (i have 8GB), you should now type in the following Kernel flag: maxmem=20484. Some text will appear and then stop with a prompt reading ' Press any key to continue…" Go for it! After some more text and a couple of minutes to should be dropped into the standard Mac OS X Install GUI, which will ask to to select a main language. This keeps the final install size down and speeds up the install time considerably.
Here it is, as i've been promising for weeks now... NOTE: For those of you without a working install of Mac OS X. It IS possible to install from a Retail Snow Leopard DVD using an Optical Disk Drive.Here's what we'll be doing today: Installing Mac OS X Snow Leopard onto an AMD-based HP Pro Liant Micro Server N36L ( using Nawcom's Mod USB install method, with an additional aftermarket Asus ATI Radeon 5450 Silent (Low Profile) discrete graphics card in the PCIe x16 slot (for full QE/CI graphics support); Updating the install to Max OS X 10.6.7 and getting as much of the hardware and software working as humanly possible. See ' PART 6: Tweaks' at the end of this Guide, where i discuss getting the Optical Disk Drive working in full SATA mode.It also means that i have everything i need on one physical drive, should anything go wrong during the install or should i need to start again from scratch.NOTE: For this you're going to need an already working Mac OS X machine.There are probably ways to do this with Ubuntu or Windows, but that falls outside of my current knowledge base.
Nawcom covers some of this at his awesome website here: WHAT YOU' LL NEED:• Your new Installer Disk on a USB Flash Disk, a spare HDD or HDD Partition.• Some patience1.
