iAtkos v7 is 10.5.7 and it was running with Voodoo 9.5 Kernel to get both cores but with Kernel Panics at Shutdown / Restart.
After 10.5.8 update, I moved DSDT.aml from / (root) to /Extras and I got Vanilla 9.8 Kernel fully working (2 cores Shutdown / Restart)
Bootloader is Chameleon V2 RC431 (it comes with iAtkos) It's said that Chameleon can read the DSDT.aml file from both locations, but as my experience it's not true ;D
Snow is coming: I already have the 10A432 dmg and the necessary files...I only need some time
Thanks for the useful extra info......BTW can you run with 2 cores and no Shutdown / Restart issues without DSDT.aml on 10.5.8....?
With 10.5.7 did you have to use DSDT.aml to run with with 2 cores and no Shutdown / Restart issues....?
It may be that Chameleon 2.0 RC2 (r640) reads from both locations but not 2.0 RC1 (r431).....I wonder if the KPs with Voodoo 9.5.0 and 10.5.7 had something to do with DSDT.aml being in / rather than /Extra which Chameleon V2 generates....?
I may decide to jump from 10.5.6 to Snow, since my OS X 10.6.0 Retail DVD should arrive shortly.....
nopp it didnt change... it's still locked..
OK since you cannot set AHCI let us hope that by having SATA RAID enabled, it means that it is running in AHCI mode anyhow......
I suggest the following:
Partition/format your IDE HDD as MBR/HFS+ into either (IMHO the best option....see post #1)
10GB Boot_OSX (as 1st volume on HDD)
75GB Main_OSX (as 2nd volume on HDD)
75GB Backup_OSX (as 3rd volume on HDD)
or two equal size volumes
75GB Main_OSX (as 1st volume on HDD)
75GB Backup_OSX (as 2nd volume on HDD)
and initially install OS X on Main without choosing a video, network or audio driver from the Installer Customize menu....and if this installation on Main is bootable and runs OK, then clone it to Backup using Disk Utility, and also install the Chameleon bootloader on Backup too...
You can then get video, network and audio installed and working 100% on Main......then clone it to Backup......
