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

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?

Specs: GA-G33M-DS2R - E8400 - NVidia 8400GT 256MB - 2GB RAM - AHCI - 1 SATA HD on PORT 0
Kexts: NVEnabler, fakesmc, Sleepenabler, VoodooHDA, OpenHaltRestart, NullCPUPowerManagement


I don't even get to those DNSServiceRegister lines.

I think I'll have to give up for now, I also tried the Boot-132 method, but it gets stuck after seeking a key boot file (can't remember off the top of my head). Maybe I can pick out the AppleAtheros.kext file from the 10.5.7 update and use that in Leopard (the EEE doesn't stand to benefit much from Snow Leopard anyway).

Compliments & some bugs

1st: A big compliment. This is the first time I was able to create a working usb boot&install volume for SL!

2nd: Some bugs. Fyi: I'm using an Asus P5K board with 3 hard drives, E9450 CPU @3.2 GHz, 8 GB RAM, nVidia 8500GT graphics with 256 MB VRAM.

2a) Booting with the USB stick "SnowLeoInstaller" ist working.

2b) But the Installer does not find any SATA-drive. Only USB drives. My solution was to put an internal HD into an external HD-Case an make in this way the two partitions "MacLoader" with 1GB and "Snow Leopard" with 148 GB. Then I was able to install SL onto "Snow Leopard".

2c) The script "3_MacLoader" aka "macloader.sh" does not work. There are no files on "MacLoader" after starting the procedure. I testet this again connecting the drive again to an SATA port. Result was the same. In Harddisk uttility I could see that "MacLoader" is called "MacLoader 1". Therefore I startet "3_MacLoader" again giving it "MacLoader 1" as parameter. No change.

2d) When I start just "Chameleon-2.0-RC2-r640.pkg" on "MacLoader" I can see the 3 folders Extra, Library and usr on "MacLoader". But this is not the solution, because all the other stuff from the script "macloader.sh" is still missing. And it will not boot at all ;-)

I tried to analyse "macloader.sh" but did not find a bug which would declare this behaviour.

Here the results from the terminal starting "3_MacLoader":

Hi there people. I Downloaded the kext folder that had the kexts used for a P5K-Pro motherboard, I used it and made the boot usv device with no errors at all. I reboted and fixed up the partitions with disk utility before installing snow leopard. The installation went real fine and reoobting was no problems...I thought. It got stuck with a spinning clock only so I rebooted again ( Yess with the Snow leo installer usb thingie) chosoing this time -V to see the problem.

Here is the thing, SAME problem ahs been coming back to haunt me over and over again, no matter what type of setup of kexts I am using or bootlists efi strings Im adding ( even running with only default on everythign still same problem)

IOHDIXController::createDriveInKernel: returning error 0x6b
hdik: attach failed: error 0000006b

That line pops up 6 times in a row real fast and it all ends up with:

launch_msg(): Socket is not conected


Buuuaaaahhh, anyone with an idea of what could be wrong?

Last kext setup I tryed with ( that was fifth time actually...) was:
fakesmc.kext
NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
OpenHaltRestart.kext
UUID.kext
EVOenabler.kext
LegacyAppleAHCIPort.kext
Sleepenabler.kext

And yess I have tryed even with ONLY fakesmc.kext and OpenHaltRestart.kext, still same error.

I tried even to add the usb lines in my bootlist that was posted under this titels postings,
did not help a thing :D

Anyone with any ideas?

So you meen that suddenly the 32 bit mode that should be the easier one to work actually will give me such problems compared tothe 64 bit one that shoudl be the harder one?. ooooke. well. I will prepare a second usb stick with modified kexts for another guide just incase, since I truly dont feel like reinstalling leopard to many more times ;)

No need to reinstall, just change your boot.plist.

Funny did that... still no help at all. Seems I have a problem with my system not reading the usb properly, or let me put it like this. The error messages are pointing towards a problem with the AppleUSBUHCI. now I know its not that a big problem to fix since Netkas has posted something about it, but I have to extract that kexts from the DVD and fix it up. still dont think it will help me with the problem. Im getting more or less extremely annoyed at Snow Leopard. I have been reinstalling leo 9 times in total now... 4 only today, due to me wanting to add Snow Leo on my FIRST Hard drive and let it be my main OS. Seems like no guide at all ( been trying already over 7 so far) have been able to let me get into SL after a reboot from the installation side.

Did you run the same code twice on same HD? did you exit terminal after every .sh (just to be safe)
cause i had 0 problem with this guide though just the last update part.

I did fail the first time i follow this guide as i had no idea what to put in the
"Where do you want to setup the bootloader?"
part and had
chmod: /Volumes/MacLoader/Extra/Extensions.mkext: Not a directory
chown: /Volumes/MacLoader/Extra/Extensions.mkext: Not a directory
error
My solution was to redo everything again and it worked.

Trying to install on a Maximus II formula.
If I click f8 and select the usb drive I simply see a black screen and a blinking cursor.
And if click SnowLeoInstaller in Chameleon I get this kernel panic:

http://xeped.com/IMG_1960.JPG

Also tried to install bootloader2 (chameleon 1) but I cant find any way to boot the usb from it.

Any help would be great.

Here a screenshot about HD utility is naming "MacLoader" internally "MacLoader 1"

chameleon was being installed in your system-volume (i.e. Snow Leopard). check if your "Snow Leopard" partition already has the "Extra" folder.

before u run "3_MacLoader", make sure to remove/unmount any other drives named "MacLoader". if u also have a folder named "MacLoader", rename it first.

i'd recommend u restart w/ partitioning your target disk but u have to make sure no other volume/partition/folder is already named "MacLoader".

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
change "MacLoader" to "SnowLeoBooter" or any other name you like but give it a name w/out any [space].

u can remove the NVEnabler.kext inside the KEXTs folder of the MacLoader_SL kit. efi-strings can be added to the com.apple.Boot.plist that can be found inside the Extra folder of both the SnowLeoInstaller and MacLoader volume/partitions.

If I click f8 and select the usb drive I simply see a black screen and a blinking cursor.

i don't know how it happens in your case but that blank screen w/ only blinking underscore means no bootloader is found.

Funny did that... still no help at all. Seems I have a problem with my system not reading the usb properly, or let me put it like this. The error messages are pointing towards a problem with the AppleUSBUHCI. now I know its not that a big problem to fix since Netkas has posted something about it, but I have to extract that kexts from the DVD and fix it up. still dont think it will help me with the problem.

Seems like no guide at all ( been trying already over 7 so far) have been able to let me get into SL after a reboot from the installation side.

if u were following this guide & u were already successful in installing snowleo, try rebooting w/ your SnowLeoInstaller. at timeout, interrupt boot then select the Snow Leopard partition (or wherever u installed snowleo) and press [ENTER]. regarding the usb-fix, i believe there's also a guide to patch dsdt provided by ApexDE.

Is there a way to update kext, set permission when boot in snow leopard?

I love this guide, easy and learning a lot of things just by looking at the script.

Thanks alot MACinized!

yup. an updater is already part of the MacLoader_SL kit. just manage your kexts inside the KEXTs folder (add/remove), edit/patch/update DSDT.aml that's inside the ScriptFiles folder, then execute "4_Updater".

Wow, I think using this guide was easier than all of the Vanilla retail installs I did. I think this is the most vanilla install of leopard/snow leopard I've ever done.

Right now the only problems I have are I have no audio and all my hard drives show up as a yellow square.

The smallest I could get the Mac Loader partition was 1.07gb. I guess thats not too bad since I have it on a 250gb drive so loosing a gigabyte of space wont be too bad.

Its not that huge of a problem, but I cant get my Snow Leopard OS drive to show up on the desktop. The hdd I used for the installer shows up, but Snow Leopard nor MacLoader (not too concerned about this one though).

If anyone has the ALC889a audio chipset and got sound working, how did you get it to work?

Specs:
Gigabyte EP35 DS4
Q6600
6gb ram
XFX 8800gs, 384mb


Thanks for this guide, it has been the easiest and most successful guide I have ever used to install an apple OS on my computer.

I removed:
-NVEnabler.kext

Everything is running out of the box, only integrated touchpad and keyboard not. This was same at Leopard 10.5. For installation I have used an USB mouse and USB Keyboard.

After first boot I have installed:
-VoodooPS2Controller-0.98-installer.pkg to get integrated touchpad and keyboard running
-EFI String for Ethernet fix to get timemachine running, used the UInstaller from PCWiz

Thanks again,
caiowa

Edit:
PS: I used a patched BIOS from http://www.osxcores.site50.net to patch DSDT

Hey MACinized,

I've been trying to get my DSDT file and I'm getting an error message and was wondering if you can help. Here what I get:

I can't open the file and edit it.

Thanks,

u can open it w/ TextEdit.app w/c is in /Applications.

Wow, I think using this guide was easier than all of the Vanilla retail installs I did. I think this is the most vanilla install of leopard/snow leopard I've ever done.

Right now the only problems I have are I have no audio and all my hard drives show up as a yellow square.

The smallest I could get the Mac Loader partition was 1.07gb. I guess thats not too bad since I have it on a 250gb drive so loosing a gigabyte of space wont be too bad.

Its not that huge of a problem, but I cant get my Snow Leopard OS drive to show up on the desktop. The hdd I used for the installer shows up, but Snow Leopard nor MacLoader (not too concerned about this one though).

If anyone has the ALC889a audio chipset and got sound working, how did you get it to work?

Specs:
Gigabyte EP35 DS4
Q6600
6gb ram
XFX 8800gs, 384mb


Thanks for this guide, it has been the easiest and most successful guide I have ever used to install an apple OS on my computer.

u may visit Stell's Blog for a collection of snowleo kexts.
