Make sure that Xcode is installed:

Install using the .dmg file:

#== TeX ==

sudo /opt/local/bin/port install texlive

#= Time Machine =

defaults write com.apple.systempreferences TMShowUnsupportedNetworkVolumes 1

Doesn’t work. It seams as though TimeMAchine tries to use a smb drive with the name used + _1.

#= OS X Server =

Install OSX Server within a Virtualbox machine:

  • http://geeknizer.com/install-snow-leopard-virtualbox/

Create a new disk within a existing OSX machine

Mount the retail OSX server media

Mount the utils.iso file

Start the old machine and format the new disk

Open the retail installation media - just double click

Run the unHide app on the utils disk - http://www.mediafire.com/?mmtm2z0huwk

Browse to /System/Installation/Packages( inside Retail disc) and run OSInstall.mpkg

Not sure if a special boot loader, such as Chamelaon, is needed when runing on Mac hardware - http://geeknizer.com/download-install-chameleon-bootloader/

Did not get Chamelon to work, used Empire EFI instead, make sure that EFI is DISABLED in the setting and mount the cdrom as the primary slave

also make sure that osx server.dmg is mounted as the secondary slave, the countries in the list box will now shoe otherwise

Open the Empire CD and goto postinstallation and tun myHack. This should make it possible to boot without the CD mounted - http://prasys.info/tag/empire-efi/
