Has anyone tried this on a EVGA X58 SLI LE? I want to believe, but this seems too easy...

Burn IT



100% Working for me!



OK, I'm about to give this a shot.

My understanding is:

1) Download the link above, and burn to CD

2) Boot off of said CD

3) Swap out to retail Snow Leopard DVD

4) Install Snow Leopard

5) Boot off of CD again

6) Install kexts.

I've already collected the kexts for my machine for Snow Leopard that I need (it's a P5W DH Deluxe). But, on step 6, how do I get the kexts I have loaded? Do I put them on a thumb drive? Or do I have to add them to the CD image somehow, and if so, how?

Thanks for any help.

Doesn't work :) I burned it to a CD, booted from it, swapped out the discs at the prompt and when the Snow Leopard DVD should boot I just get a black screen.

I'm using an Asus P5W DH Deluxe w/Geforce 8800 GT.

Hey. I'm trying to boot this off an external DVD drive. Well actually it's an internal drive connected via an IDE to USB adaptor. This is because it seems there are no drivers for my ATA chipset. (I do have SATA functionality though.) I'm also trying to install leopard imaged onto a USB external HD. Anyway the particular error I get is:
ISOLINUX 3.63 2008-04-10 isolinux: Disk error 01, AX = 4201, drive 90
Boot failed: press a key to retry
Nothing happens when I press any keys on my USB keyboard. Anyone have any idea what to do? I'm about to try reinstalling the DVD drive into the computer temporarily...

EDIT:
Now with the DVD drive connected directly to the motherboard via ATA, I get the following error:
ISOLINUX 3.63 2008-04-10 isolinux: Image checksum error, sorry...
Boot failed: press a key to retry
Note that before burning the disk I resized initrd.img to around 24 megs and added drivers for my video card, just in case. (I had hoped that this would help me avoid this infamous black screen issue.)

This will only work on a vanilla capable PC, so no AMD.










Alternatively you can add dsmos.kext for snow leopard instead on fakesmc

Patched!

Should Work!


Hi, is this what people were asking for?

With the 'fake' injected into the bootloader? If so - awesome, thank you.

Thanks.

What you need



1. Snow Leopard untouched retail DVD


By this, do you mean a copy of Snow Leopard never before used? I was thinking of using my partners copy (she has a real Mac).

If this is the case, please explain why so I don't ask such a silly question in the future.

By the way,
Thanks for your hard work putting together your HacOs Snow Leopard, and posting tut for us.

:)
