I hope it might help you.

I got the same problem and fixed it. Now it's been 1 year and half to use it with no issue.
I did exactly the same as this following link :

http://us.shuttle.co.../tm.aspx?m=3212

And, I ordered and used this capacitor kit :

http://www.badcaps.n...products_id=121

It worked great.


And, now, I have question. I wanted to install SL on my K45. but every time I try to install it, it reboots even before I see the white screen with apple logo.
Could you help me out? I've built several machine and all successful except for this K45.
I used your method (usb) and #####+##### method. same result; boot with whatever boot cd, choose usb drive that I restored 10.6.3 retail to, and black screen, 3 sec later, auto reboot.

I really want to install on it. Please help me.

You probably have another dead capacitor. It's why I recommended replacing them all.

I should probably do mine as well.

Installation method:

1) ###### + ###### + 10.6.3 "retail" DVD,

2) User DSDT specified,

3) Voodoo 32-/64-bit specified,

4) 32-bit com.apple.Boot.plist specified,

5) Apply 10.6.7 Combo Update, and, finally,

6) Restart into 10.6.7.

Presently running 10.6.7 with all software updates, and with updated Developer code, too.


I've got 10.6.3 running successfully using the steps from the March 11, 2011 update at the top of this thread using a retail DVD, but I used the files from "

Shuttle_K45_K48___SnowLeopard_10.6.6.zip"

and did NOT use ######.



can I just do the following on my working 10.6.3 system:


1)

###### + ###### + 10.6.3 "retail" DVD,

(skip, start from working 10.6.3)


2) User DSDT specified,

do I use files from

2011_03_22X_Shuttle_dsdt.aml.zip (I am usng a SATA HD)

3) Voodoo 32-/64-bit specified,

(skip, but I don't care about sound)


4) 32-bit com.apple.Boot.plist specified,

(done)


5) Apply 10.6.7 Combo Update, and, finally,


6) Restart into 10.6.7



Also, can I use the 10.6.8 combo update and get the same results?



Many thanks, m.

I recently pulled my Shuttle K45 off the shelf, and decided to play with it again. It had 10.5.8, and that is quite old now.

 

I upgraded the processor to a Core 2 Duo 2ghz, and added a GB of RAM to make 2gb total. It also has a 400gb SATA drive and a slimline DVD-RW drive. I bought a $5.00 Ralink USB wireless adapter on eBay to add WIFI to the system.

 

Many things don't run on 10.5.8. So, I decided that since it wasn't useful, I'd try this guide and bring it up to 10.6.x.

 

I had a 10.6.3 Install DVD, and used that to make the USB stick. I followed the instructions, and all went pretty well. But, when I ran the software update to go to 10.6.8, the system would crash on boot.

 

Based on the text on the screen, there was something about 64bit Kernel mode that it didn't like.So, I put it back to 10.6.3 and found the terminal command line to default the system to 32bit Kernel. I only have 2gb of RAM anyway, so no advantage to 64bit Kernel.

 

This time, the upgrade to 10.6.8 took, and all I had to do was copy the AppleHDA.kext from 10.6.2 to get the sound back. SleepEnabler.kext crashes the system, so since I don't care about sleep mode, I removed it using terminal, while booted to the USB stick.

 

Seems to be runing ok now. Though a few things like VLC Player don't install properly.

 

Anyone know if I can put anything newer on here?
