This seems like a great guide and thanks MACinized for the time and effort you've put in.

I'm just not holding my mouth right somehow, every time I try restarting on the SnowLoeInstaller I get an instant KP.

Maybe it's down to my kexts
Anyone with a similar config had luck with this?

I take it the Bootloader goes to MacLoader_SL?

I'm Running
Asus p6t se MB
i7 920
6gig

I've been running 10.5.5 fine for a few months now with the iDeneb install.

Thank you very much!
For the first time i successfully install and boot in snow leopard with ep35-ds4 mb.

2 question (after successfully install) though,

1, how do i add new kext with this setup?

2, how do i change chameleon settings?

Thanks again for this great tutorial.

Well, I bit the bullet and went GUID; after trying 3 modded OSInstall.mpkgs and modifying my own. Who wants to save a Windows install anyway??? ^_^

And the wireless in the 1000he is now working! Thanks Apple! ;)

Edit: After installing, I'm getting a "launch_msg: socket not connected" error, will look into it tomorrow (I probably need IntelPIXATTA.kext, I Googled the error and it mostly seems to point to a hard drive issue).

"add/remove kexts inside the KEXTs folder inside the MacLoader_SL kit then double-click 4_Updater."
1, I mean after booting in snow leopard if i need to install additional kext. Can i do this with the HD that i am booting from?

"what chameleon settings are u referring to?"
2, like automatic booting time, and witch HD to boot from and such.

edit:
Sorry, I am quite new to chameleon
I have always use the none UI ones.

Let's say if i want to change the boot time to 0
and i want chameleon to auto boot to my snow leopard HD (on 2 sata to my mb).

I will have to go to MacLoader partition and look for com.apple.boot and edit like such?

to keep your snowleo vanilla, i recommend installing your add'l kext to MacLoader. u can do that by making use of the 4_Updater that's included in the MacLoader_SL kit. just manage (i.e. add/remove) what kexts are inside the "KEXTs" folder.

u can also do this by executing 4_Updater. but well u can also manually edit the com.apple.Boot.plist that's inside the "Extra" folder inside the MacLoader partition.

[quote name='Trograin' post='1250039' date='Sep 4 2009, 03:06 AM']DSDT.aml ( which is not stated whre its supposed to be so I gather it should be in the Kext folder),...[/quote]
btw, the dsdt is automatically taken cared of by my scripts. it's copied to the "Extra" folder.

Thanks A Lot!
I'll try it tonight.

Just one last Q,

MacLoader partition1, snow leopard partition 2 (on 2nd sata to my mb).

=<string>hd(1,1)</string> ?

or

=<string>hd(1,3)</string> ?

in com.apple.boot

on this method, I think, you will get this error when using Diskutil in terminal: diskutil[370:903] _CFGetHostUUIDString: unable to determine UUID for host. Error: 35

this will also appear all the time in syslog ... use PlatformUUID.kext and change it (info.plist), as well as SMUUID in smbios.plist ... use your MacAddress for the last 12 digits in UUID/SMUUID ...

updated MacLoader_SL kit. added UUID.kext. i really don't know any damage done by "Error: 35" but hopefully the generic UUID in the UUID.kext will eliminate this error.

I have AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext, and got the same issue here, can't figure out why. I'll look into it and if I find a solution, will post here.

I have the same "launch_msg(): socket is not connected" problem on my GA-G33M-DS2R. Can't work out what's wrong. Install seemed to go fine, rebooted, choose Snow Leopard partition to boot and it just hangs.

Anyone able to see what's going wrong from from this screenshot?

You don't need NullCPUPowerManagement.kext with a patched DSDT.

Here's a zip file with the files I currently use in /Extra/Extensions/ on my P5K Pro (with dsdt.aml in /).

p.s. Which BIOS version do you have?

Edit: I also patched the USB ports like so:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"><plist version="1.0"><dict>	<key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1a,0x0)</key>	<dict>		<key>device-id</key>		<string>0x3a37</string>	</dict>	<key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1a,0x1)</key>	<dict>		<key>device-id</key>		<string>0x3a38</string>	</dict>	<key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1a,0x2)</key>	<dict>		<key>device-id</key>		<string>0x3a39</string>	</dict>	<key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1a,0x7)</key>	<dict>		<key>device-id</key>		<string>0x3a3c</string>	</dict>	<key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1d,0x0)</key>	<dict>		<key>device-id</key>		<string>0x3a34</string>	</dict>	<key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1d,0x1)</key>	<dict>		<key>device-id</key>		<string>0x3a35</string>	</dict>	<key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1d,0x2)</key>	<dict>		<key>device-id</key>		<string>0x3a36</string>	</dict>	<key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1d,0x7)</key>	<dict>		<key>device-id</key>		<string>0x3a3a</string>	</dict></dict></plist>
Which of cource is part of my com.apple.Boot.plist

i believe u have already have an existing chameleon install to your SnowLeoInstaller before u executed 2_SnowLeoInstaller. try reformatting ur flashdrive, restore snowleo dvd installer to it.

inside the KEXTs folder of the MacLoader_SL kit, remove the already included NVEnabler.kext & the VoodooHDA.kext if you have no use for it then put in your EVOenabler. then execute 2_SnowLeoInstaller & make sure that u set it up to the same partition where u restored your snowleo dvd installer.


Hi MACinized,

I followed your other documents and was able to install Leopard.
I am very new to these procedures. Would you mind detailing the restore part of Snow Leopard for me.
I have a Retail DVD that I got as an upgrade from Apple but looks like a full DVD. I don't know how to do restore.

Could you help?

Thanks
