list of cards that are passed for the moment (I made up the info)
P5Q3 deluxe ->OK
P5Q deluxe --> OK
P5Q E --------> OK (KextRJ45 HERE)
P5Q C --------> OK
I / What it takes to snowleopard :
Update your bios with juzzi : ICI
The basic package for P5Q : ICI
The boot CD for P5Q : ICI
And above all official license snowleopard.
II / bios settings : MAJ 02/10/09
Now you need options [S3] and ACPI2 of activated. Warning some P5Q XXX do not have these options but this does not necessarily pose problems. But for those who have the option not to forget them. To avoid KernelPanic in the advanced settings processor bios, disabled the C1E Support, Max CPUID Value Limit, CPU TM function, Execute Disable Bit, Intel ® SpeedStep ™. Normally it will solve many problems. Just let Intel ® Virtualization Tech to Parallels Desktop for example.
III / Le premier BOOT CD :
Are put CD or DVD to boot, once loaded, put the DVD snowleopard then F5.
Choose the DVD and normally you can start over. It goes without saying that this DVD is for P5Q, not necessarily for the entire series but it passes for others. Otherwise the site darwinx86.org a very well done tutorial explains how to create one from Leopard. If you create a bootable CD do not forget to let me post so I can put it online. For those who partner Windows can not or difficult to do.
IV / How do once on the DVD :
First thing, format your hard drive and HFS extended journaled and the partition options set GUID and not MBR. You'll find it all in the top finder Disk Utility. Just click on the root of your drive to see the Partition tab appear.
Back on your menu and just click continue or customized your installation, and go. In all cases no personalization or it will not impact on the facility.
V / The first BOOT on snowleopard :
Put the CD or DVD BOOT and choose the hard drive where you installed the system. OSX will ask you to enter your information session.
VI / Installing Chameleon :
I have not tested version PKG circulating on the Web and on the official site I could not find a PKG installer. So you can download the RC2 then we will change the BOOT file in the root disk with the version RC3.
This does not change anything I do mind.
You will need MainMenu post when Onyx is compatible snowleopard I would advise you to take it. MainMenu being paid, but works in demo and can make hidden files appear. In the pack you will find P5Q chameleon and the Boot file.
So install Chameleon RC2, with MainMenu and then reveals the hidden files. You will find the root of the famous BOOT disk to put in the trash and replaced by the RC3.
Extra folder, and turned the Mkext kexts in the Extensions and make these available in my pack.
VII / Edit com.apple.boot.plist :
AEnable Enabler to recognize you by default Nvidia card is very simple. A sample issue below. It is in: Disc / library / preferences / SystemConfiguration. You will notice that there is also the Graphics Mode in place that allows for good resolution to boot Chameleon.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1200x32</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>yes</string> </dict> </plist>
VIII / sound setup and network :
For this you need KextHelperb7 eand my pack which contains kexts to put in: Disk / System / Library / Extensions. We will install VoodooHDA, OpenHaltRestart and AttansicL1eEthernet.
Now a reboot p'tit for your Hackintosh is perfect or almost!
IIX / Passage in 10.6.1 :
This is where we see the strength of your installation says "Retail", normally you pass through the apple menu. And this update will make it hands down without changing anything!
