==How To Boot Installer==

To boot the installer just boot the disc as you normally would and it will go right into the Installer. Make sure to read the pop up installation notes before installing!!

== How to Boot LiveDVD ==

To boot the LiveDVD, boot from the iPC Disc, except this time press F8 while booting the disc to get to the Boot Menu. Type in:


And press Enter to start the LiveDVD Boot. Eventually you will get to the root prompt like this:

:/ root#:

Type in the line “bootlive; exit” (without quotes) like this:

:/ root#: bootlive; exit

And press Enter to start loading the LiveDVD. Now a prompt will come up asking you to specify the RAMDisk Size. A bigger RAMDisk means more room to  use the LiveDVD with, but it uses more RAM. The RAMDisk size cannot exceed your physical RAM size. To use the default 1GB RAMDisk size just leave it blank and press Enter. If you want to specify your own RAMDisk size, it must be specified in 512 byte blocks. To calculate this, say I want a RAMDisk 2048MB in size:

(2048 x 512) / 1000000

Basically the formula is (A x 512) / 1000000 where A is the RAMDisk size in megabytes (A multiplied by 512 divided by 1000000).

If everything goes well you will be greeted with the Mac OS X desktop. Where you can use and test Mac OS X in its fullest. If you go to the Applications folder you see the default OS X apps but go into the “iPC_OSx86_Live_Apps” folder inside the Applications folder and a number of applications have been included:

* AppleHDAPatcher
* Boomerang Data Recovery
* Carbon Copy Cloner
* Clone X 3 (Demo)
* Clonetool H1
* DSDT Patcher GUI
* EFIStudio
* iDefrag (Demo)
* iPartition (Demo)
* Kext Helper b7
* Marvin’s AMD Utility
* MKextTool
* MSR Tools
* NVCAP Maker 1.4
* OSx86  Tools
* Pacifist
* PPF-O-Matic
* Seashore
* TextMate (Demo)
* UInstaller (Universal OSx86 Installer)
* Zephyroth Utilities — includes:
– About this Mac Modifier
– AMD Patcher
– AMD Software Update

If you want to run your own apps that are not on the DVD then just put them on a USB stick and plug it in  Since the iPC LiveDVD relies on the RAMDisk for proper usage, if you check the untitled volume on the desktop you can see how much free space the RAMDisk has left. If you keep running out of free space then increasing the RAMDisk size is recommended if possible.

If you are having issues, try logging out and back in. The root user and pass are ipclive for both. To log in as User1 (admin) in loginwindow just select User1 and use “ipclive” (without quotes) as password, to log in as root choose “Other” from loginwindow and use “root” as username and “ipclive” as password (both without quotes)

Default auto login account is the root account. To log into root choose “Other” at the login window, type in “root” as username and “ipclive” as password. An alternate admin account is also available (you can see it in the login window as “user1″) and the password is also “ipclive”

    Wow! This works great on every PC I own. It’s really, really, useful! Thanks so much for all the work you put into this. I’m very, very impressed.

    It’s unfortunate the OSx86 community is so bogged down with people who don’t have a clue and post stuff like “my power switch is now broken” implying it’s your fault. The noise level is so high it takes hours to wade through all the “help! It ain’t working” BS to find something useful. I sure wish there were a more private forum for developers.

    Thanks again!

    I was tryin to boot to the livedvd, but either I missed the chance to hit F8 or hit it at the wrong time… regardless… I now have a pretty big issue.

    When I got to the main installer, I hit the power button to shut the computer down. Now the power button doesn’t work. Any ideas on how to turn the computer on again?

      Hi Kay,

      It seems bad dvd burning, burn the iso at minimum possible speed and try again.

    Sounds like a great build. However, it does not seem to be available at the usual places.
