my current environment ->
HP 6720 running iDeneb 10.5.7
a spare HDD that i can plug to laptop which im setting up SL.
SL DVD & ISO (10.6.3)
I'm stuck @ step 3 as I'm not sure where to copy which file.
Step 3 it says ;
Install chameleon 2 RC3 on the Snow disk (be careful about installation destination)
Download this pack Thanks to blackch
In Extra folder copy dsdt.aml file found here
(Thanks to Blackch and grpince for fixing dsdt.aml file)
copy the rest of the files to the appropriate folders
Now we need mkextMaker v2.2 utility from here
Drag Extensions folder from Snow HDD on mkextMaker icon and mkext maker will make extensions.mkext in you Extra folder.
Remove the IOATAFamily.kext from /Snow/System/Library/Extensions and replace it with the file you'll find in the SL pack
(it's Leo 10.5.8 Version)
1. Install chameleon 2 rc3 -> done
2. For the operations in Extra folder contents
Extensions - Copied it to SNOW drive System\Library\Extensions folder
~Boot.plist - Copied to Snow drive Library\Preferences\System Configuration folder & Extra folder
dsdt.aml - Copied to Extra Folder in SNOW drive
smbios.plist - Copied to Extra Folder in SNOW drive
Themes folder, voodoohdahelper, helper.sh, Extensions.mkext - I couldnt find where to copy or replace in SNOW drive. Can someone please tell me where I can put these files.
I ran the mkext utility & drag dropped the Extensions folder in System\Library\ & finally it said "sorry could not create extensions.mkext"
Also the step 3 final stage -> Replace the IOATAFamily.kext its not clear from where to get the file as it says "you'll find in the SL pack" is it from the SL dvd or from the existing laptop which has 10.5.8 . Because im not sure I replaced it with a file I found on 10.5.7 iDeneb running on 6720.
How ever finally when i plugged back the Snow drive to 6720 & booted from it, the booting stopped @ a screen where it asked for me to plug keyboard. ( i believe the ps2 mouse & k/b in laptop are not recognized, how wil I fix this ? )
If someone can offer me help on places i encountered problems i'd be very grateful.
