I tried this method on my HP DC7700 desktop, the bios does not have an option for ACHI so I looked at using Netkas AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext and edited the dvice id. added the kext and ran updater. USB boots but I still don't see my SATA drives only the USB.

currently running iDeneb 10.5.8 and all is working.

Any ideas ?

hi there,

i did try to make this work but i am not able to boot.
Chamelon starts up then a quick short line on the upper left corner (something with injector.. too fas to read)
and then it restarts.

I do have an older Medion MD8800 PC. Leopard 10.5.8 is running fine with no issues.
I did create the DSDT aml File, added all kext and so on.

I am not quite sure if it is related to ACHI mode which my BIOS does not have a special setting for it.
The board description just stated that there is an automatic ACHI mode.

Anybody any idea why it just wont boot.

i would apriciate any suggestions.

sorry for my german english hope good enough to be understandable

On step 5 I see the following about fdisk.
See attached image.

Could this be the problem with why I cant install?

Help please.
I followed the guide to install SL on my DP35DP, it seems that everything goes well except that I can not connect to the Internet.
The system recognizes the ethernet card Intel82566 but I'm not connected to the Internet.
Does anyone know give me a hint?
Thanks to all and sorry for my English.

I don't know for sure but you can try this: use manual IP then under DNS setting use a Public DNS number Like: 4.2.2.2, 4.2.2.1 or 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220 and see if that help.

Have you tried booting with "-v -f" this seems to clear thing up when I have problems.

Hey all;
I've just begun the process to trying to upgrade my GA-EP35-DS3L to run Snow Leopard. However when getting to part 3, 3_MacLoader the kext cache is never created and I get a kernel panic on reboot. Debugging the shell script seems to suggest that there's an issue with kextcache authenticating the included kexts?

I get the following in the kextcache.log file:
[codebox]xcaxfakesmc.kext is not authentic; omitting from mkext.
NullCPUPowerManagement.kext is not authentic; omitting from mkext.
OpenHaltRestart.kext is not authentic; omitting from mkext.
PlatformUUID.kext is not authentic; omitting from mkext.
Sleepenabler.kext is not authentic; omitting from mkext.
No kexts found for architecture i386; skipping architecture.
No mkext archives created.[/codebox]

I'm running version 0.4 of MacLoader. Has anyone else had this issue? I can't see why this would just happen for me if the kexts are at fault?

I'll continue to poke around but if anyone's got any suggestions that would be great!

Cheers
Gavin

Interesting.....

I was running the scripts from the USB drive I used to install Snow Leopard, I just tried running them from the downloads dir of the new Snow Leopard install and it worked!

Files are all identical? Maybe there's something in the way that USB drives are mounted that the kext cache util doesn't like?

Anyway, now I'm off to try and get all my hardware working....

Finally took the plunge and installed SL with this guide.
Had trouble booting with my installed drive, found out that 3_Macloader wasn't patching successfully, and this workaround solved it:

or u may also try erasing/renaming your "MacLoader" partition (aka "MacLoader 1") to anything, say Booter then edit the line 43 of macloader.sh inside the ScriptFiles folder to wit:

diskutil eraseVolume "HFS+" "SnowLeoBooter" /dev/disk${DISKNUMBER}s$PARTITIONNUMBER > /dev/null
diskutil eraseVolume "HFS+" "SnowLeoBooter" /dev/disk${DISKNUMBER}s$PARTITIONNUMBER > /dev/null
change "MacLoader" to "SnowLeoBooter" or any other name you like but give it a name w/out any [space].


Well, actually my first solution was to just copy the Extra folder from the USB "leoinstaller" drive to my installed drive, and it seemed to work as I was able to boot from my drive without problems.

gavbrown, yes, this is the first major issue with this script - should be ran from dekstop (or system partition).
The other is that Extensions.mkext is not compiled for x64. Use Kext Utility instead.

Excuse me but I've got a question:

This guide is very good and it worked on one of my computers. But today I tried to install SL on another PC with similar configuration.




Everything works fine, installation runs through. After complete install I can boot the fresh installed SL from the USB Stick (where the SL Install-files are stored on).

Then I tried to open the file "3_MacLoader". Answered "n" (or do I have to set it up in the EFI-partition?) and entered my password.

But now if I try to boot from my Macintosh HD with the installed MacLoader after about 2 seconds I always get a kernel panic (it shows something about unsupported processor in AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext). By the way, I'm trying to install it on an ASUS P5L-VM 1394 with Celeron 430.




Does anybody know a solution for this? The strange thing is, that I still can boot the SL if I choose this HDD in the Chameleon Bootloader on the SL Install-USB-Stick :S

I've already set it up on another PC but I don't know what I made different on that other machine ;_;

I made a nearly perfect installation of SL using this method but I think I played a little too much with some kexts and now I have a KP even using -x -s at boot time. Is there a way to remove a kext from the EFI partition using the installation USB drive and the terminal or any other tool there?

Regards

I tried making an update to 10.6.2 and now I receive a "Mismatch between kernel and cpu pm" and I don't know how to resolve it. It's impossible to do a search on the board and I really need it. My system was a totally vanilla installation with less than 10 extensions in the EFI partition. Can anyone help me? I can place the drive in a USB box and I have access to another mac if I need to move some kexts around.

Regards

The first part isn't clear for me. What should I do with DSDT.aml after patching?

Thats it. If you check the DSDT_Patcher folder/Tools, after it finished patching, you will find the dsdt-fixed.dsl in there. just proceed to the next step. Good luck.

Thank you for your answer.

What could be wrong if I'm stuck on apple logo while booting from usb drive?
