    The AppleSMBIOS.kext included leaves me at a bluescreen on AMD/10.5.1. Other than that, it works great. 🙂

    Hi. Thanks for the emulator. You’ve simplified things up. To simplify something complicated is genius. I’d like to ask what things are missing from the Apple’s EFI? Or is the emulator has everything the original has? From what Mac’s EFI is the emulator based upon? Lastly, what is the gfxstring for, without it would the emulator be compromised? Thanks in advance. Gbu.

    I think there is a bug or something similar.

    When i boot from grub boot_v8 it finds
    the step 3 and launch darwin boot loader,
    but Darwin show me wrong partitions…

    It shows me (hd0,0) as (hd0,1).

    I’m available for tests.

    […] you still have your browser open, navigate to and pick up a copy of PC_EFI V8.0 from the link in comment […]

    Hi everyone,
    iam booting boot_v8 with grub from a different Harddisk than Leopard is on. It always prompts me to enter the Harddisk ID. Something like “80”, “81” or in my case “82”. Is there a way to tell the pc efi bootloader always to use 82? Perhaps with a parameter within grub or by Hex editing boot_v8?
    My grub settings look something like this:

    root (hd0,2)
    kernel /boot/boot_v8

    Hello netkas, ould you please release a modified boot_v8 which can boot from device 81 with gpt? Or even better release a guide how to hexedit boot_v8 to boot from custom device number by default.
