Dear all,

I'm trying to follow this guide, combined with the guide to install retail snow leopard using the thumb drive (http://lifehacker.co...start-to-finish) because i don't have an external hdd encasing.

My setup is :
Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Intel core i7 920 @ 2.66
Ati 4870
500Gb Seagate Sata Drive

I'm having a problem on installing snow leo, I set my bios to disable HT, use only 1 core, set SATA controller to AHCI. Everytime I boot up from my thumb drive the screen shows the apple logo and the rotating lines. After that, the screen just suddenly went off and I can't seem to do anything. I've searched the forum for solutions but can't seem to find it.

Currently I'm using the extra files from post 123, chameleon-2.0-RC3-r658, and PC-EFI 10.5

Any help would be very appreciated, thank you.

SOLVED
Turns out I need to use my dvi2vga adaptor.

It's hanging on Devise slot 1, that's the slot for Your Ati graphic card. I've had the same problem before switching to Nvidia.
You should remove the Ati2000.kext in order to get into the desktop, but no resolution.

Just wanted to say there is a new bios, but requires a new DSDT.aml
New DSDT.aml is in this page, scroll at end !

I still didn't test...so, as usual, do it at your own risk!

Yes, works, but gives me only 2 cores temperatures.

@dgobe: thanks for your files and infos, you made my day (and my mac) !!!
Just a question: you use a powermanagement disabler or you go with stock appleintelpowermanagement? If I delete the disabler, upate cache and reboot...KP assured!
Weird. With files in post 123 it should work without, if I'm not wrong.
Anyway, I also upgraded to 10.6 and maybe that's the 'cause?
Netkas says to use a disabler...mhhh...
I come from Linux world and I'm quite noob in this kind of things...so I ask to you to understand.
Thanks again!

Mine works fine with stock power management kext. It seems there are some people that have different results though. A few posts up I requested posting some information so I could see if there were any differences with their setup. No one took me up on it. I also mentioned some BIOS settings that might be a factor. 10.6.2 works fine for me.

Netkas said "Use any disabler for AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, for example – NullCPUPM.kext, install it to Extra mkext and reboot, of course if you made AppleIntelCPUPM to speedstep your cpu, you can skip this step."

I fall into the latter, skip this step group.

I like to install snow leeopard on my asus p6td deluxe and i have seen that the hardware is identical with the asus p6t v2 board. i have tried several boot cd's then swap in the original snow leopard dvd but I still having problems to boot snow leopard.

one error is:

"Failed to load extension com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform"

What I am doing wrong? Could someone please tell me which boot CD with the retail snow leopard will work?
Which dsdt file do I need? How to integrate on the boot-cd?

Any chance without an running osx system? Maybe with vmware under Windows 7?

Please advice. How to install SL on the P6TD Deluxe?

Thank you

Well, tonight I'll made a fresh install and tell you exactly informations about my setup and if the KP with stock power management will happen, I'll take a screenshot at it.
I also remember that first time I installed, booting by -f option, did the trick. Booting normally, did the KP!
Maybe this could explain something?

Hi, I'm wanting to have Snow Leopard on my P6T Deluxe Version 1. But if I follow this guide, will it work? As your guide is for v2 I don't know if the dsdt.aml will work?

My specs:
i7 920
P6t Deluxe V1
6gb ddr3 1600mhz
GTX 260

I tried searching this thread, but search function is broken for me.

Hey iFabio,

This is the thread for the P6T Deluxe V2, just to be clear. You probably already know this.

Your answer to Sk3letal's question is rather vague. Are you saying that the dsdt.aml from this thread works on your v1 board? If not, please clarify by pointing out where the information that can help him is located....or post your own information in the appropriate area, thanks.

Hi

Sk3letal can use this info because works.

Yes the two DSDT table are exactly the same.

I'm not quite sure what driver you're referring to, but a few weeks ago, I had a GTX 260 and it ran fine using netkas PC EFI Graphics Enabler.

I just did a fresh install on another drive. It worked fine with 10.6.1. I did a benchmark using geekbench and I get consistent scores between 13300-13400. I tested my sound if it works after sleep and it works. I backed it all up on another partition using super duper. I then upgraded to 10.6.2, upgrade went fine, installed all required 10.6.2 kexts (new NullCPU and new SleepEnabler). Now I did another benchmark using geekbench and it's now consistent between 12700-12800 and now my sound doesn't work after sleep, it only works if I unplug the speakers and plug it back in. These are exactly the same issues I encountered with my original install.

I did this exercise just to verify the issues. Has anybody got the same issues? One thing that annoys me is the sound not working after sleep on 10.6.2 (it does work again if I unplug and plug it back in)
