it's been a while :unsure:

Well it's been only minutes since I've gotten it working, but after a few days of just toying around with installing and getting kernel panics i've finally been able to get into Snow leopard and be able to register and mess around it

i installed it with by restoring the .dmg to an empty partition
used chameleon 2 rc1 (didn't even need pc_efi)

after the install is finish didn't reboot, but replaced IOATAFamily.kext with the one from my leopard install (if that doesn't work try deleting it) and deleted the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext

and then booted using: -f (that's it!)

it's a start and hopefully update this with more good news soon

Hi,

What would be steps to do this on a Dell Latitude E6400/E6500?

I have burned OSX10.6 to DVD, but when I use boot123 CD to boot and then place snow DVD 10.6, it gets stuck at DarwinX86 and nothing happens after that.

Did you compile your DSDT on your machine?
I can't make it. Please guide me on your way.

I used Snow Universal 3.5 pacakge. It make my Dell Vostro 1310 great!
Display is fine. Wireless patch by bcm43xx_enabler.sh is fine as well.
I'm looking for sound alc268.

And I can't patch DSDT, so my bios has been reset every shutdown time.

The alc268 is supported by Voodoo HDA, all except internal mic.

What graphics cards do you guys have?

Do you have the sleep/start/shutdown hang too? Any fix for it?

just wondering what exactly did you do to be able to install SL on your Vostro 1400.

Im trying to do the same thing on my 1400, but everytime i boot the SL install partition, i get a kernel panic.

Oh yes! Thank you so much. I've tried which you suggested. It made my battery indicator show.
Anyway, my battery status is "Service Battery". Maybe something wrong with this driver.
But it's better than no have.

yeah no problem..
i'm having the "service battery" thing too, but then again i have a pretty old battery, so it may actually be your battery.

This looks very tempting, I was waiting for iatkos to make their release on SL.

I currently have iatkos 5i installed, it was such a breeze.

Why dont you guys (who successfully installed SL) write a simple guide for us 1400 owners. Copy and Paste steps from other pages if needed, would really appreciate it.
