I see people here (in this forum) use "Root" and "Local-Root" for the same purpose, so here's a little snippet from Apple's dev docs:

"For KEXTs that do include this property, it is essential that it be set to the appropriate value. As explained in “Safe Booting,” a KEXT whose OSBundleRequired property is set to “Root” will always be loaded by BootX when it attempts to mount the root file system. Therefore, unless a KEXT is absolutely required to mount root, its OSBundleRequired property should not be set to “Root”."

Thank you for taking the time to prepare these instructions.
Unfortunately, it seems that I am unable to complete the boot process using a copy of the Boot-132 ISO,
on a Compaq Presario CQ60-111EM laptop, after replacing the initrd.img file with the from the one from this thread.

I am using a retail copy of the Mac OS X 10.6 DVD.

Sadly, I don't have a copy of Mac OS X 10.5 or earlier, so I cannot attempt other installation/boot methods.

Output from Darwin bootloader and initial mach_kernel bootstrap attempt:

Darwin/x86 boot v5.0.132_dfe_r146_Chameleon_pre955MB memoryVESA v3.0 63MB (Intel�Cantiga Graphics Chip Accelerated VGA BIOS)Loading Darwin/x86Loading kernel mach_kernelLoading HFS+ file: [mach_kernel] from 422f700.Loading HFS+ file: [mach_kernel] from 422f700._

No further activity occurs at this point, and the system becomes unresponsive to keyboard input.

Could having snow leo upgrade and full version make a world of difference when using boot 132. i ask because according to apple tiger users have to buy the boxed set and do a clean install where as leopard users can just upgrade? I am trying to download the boxed set now to see if that plays a part.

Also has anyone tried on a p45 mb i read that p45 board are good for snow leopard? Could you post you success or fail?

For boot-132 method for usb you need to be able to format it as Fat-32
http://www.insanelym...howtopic=115064
