The SerialATAPI stuff indicates that your HDD is not accessible by OSX.

Try

Having only ONE hdd in the machine connected and nothing else
Generating and patching your DSDT from Windows or Linux for the IRQs
Making sure SATA is set to AHCI in BIOS
Making sure HDD is connected to SATA1

Also try experimenting with different IOAHCI injector kexts


Ok i will try with one hdd
it is set to ahci and sata1
What do you mean to patch the dsdt from windows?
I will try this guide and the other on until some of it works :P
thanks tweak for the support!
ps thanks harshw

Download this: http://www.acpica.or...inary_tools.php

Extract the files somewhere you can easily access them from command prompt and then run command prompt as Administrator. Navigate to that folder and run the command:

iasl -g

This will dump a file that ends in .dsl into your folder. Mine was named dsdt_A1279001.dsl (as an example).

This is the file that you need to edit and recompile to make your DSDT.aml file. I reckon you probably aren't quite sure how to go about doing this, so if you want I'll edit it for you and send it back. Just attach it in a zip file to your post. Otherwise if you want to try yourself you can start here:

Very nice tutorial! Thanks for taking the effort of compiling/documenting this!

Currently I'm running 10.5.8 on an P6TSE with everything working fine.
Before I try installing 10.6.x, could someone confirm having a P6TSE running the 64bit kernel+kext's?

Anything specific that need to be taken into account to have that working or is it covered by this tutorial + essentials package?

Thx!

Yeah, I'm running 64-bit kernel and extensions. It's working great. When I have time I'm going to update the guide with a few tweaks and enhancements that I've been playing around with.

Hi i've a problem during charge system, also in verbose mode, after i install P6T SE Extension...
at the and crash with theese strings:
**AppleSMBusPCI::start failed to get acpi path for provider
ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::pushCPU_CSTData - _CST evaluation failed

after this i've to reboot... please help me... i was so near to my dream!!

Which method of installing the Extensions did you use? System Partition, EFI, ...? Your hard drive HAS to be on the first SATA channel on your motherboard (mine is and I've never had a problem). You also should be using AHCI. I think the kernel flag arch=i386 is already in your Boot.plist file, but you can try typing that before -v when you boot. Also what BIOS version are you using? You should update to the latest one. I really hope that you are using a P6T SE and not something else too.

The bios version that i use is the 0603..
Today i've installed my new hd that i bought only for install mac on my pc i put it on the sata 1 connector and i set the AHCI..
but the error is the same, but end whit:
WAITING FOR DSMOS...
and crash.. :P
maybe is the other boot that you suggest to use for the ati graphic card... because if i boot my installed partition from the flashdrive, it works fine!
i want my mac!!! :) help me please...

Thanks a lot for the guide. I think I might be one step away to a working snow leopard.

I got a IOAPIC error when I boot my pc with a usb installation disk.
Message I got:
....
MRC Framework successfully initialized
Using 10485 buffer headers and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers
IOAPIC:version 0x20 vector 64:87
IOAPIC:version 0x20 vector 88:111

My system: Asus P6T se(bios 0603), core i7 920, 9800GT 512MB VRAM, 1 SATA hard drive connect to port0 of all sata connector.
Bios setting: AHCI, HT enable. the Sata hd is the first one in the boot device list, and the first on in hd device list.

The boot usb disk was made by script "2_Boot Prep", when I run the script, the script said it couldn't copy a file named "smbios.plist"(In folder ScriptFiles, there is one smbios2.plist)

Sorry my English is not that good. Please give me some advice.

in the p6t se essentials.zip there is a folder called "ready" (in \p6t se essentials\script files) with 3 files. move the files to the folder above (where also the smbios2.plist is) and run the boot prep-script again - worked for me

It's not finding your kext cache. Copy the KEXTs folder over to your Extra folder and then rename it to "Extensions"

You may need to run MacLoader again.

Two options: 1) Click Skip when it verifies the installation disk. This may or may not give you a working install. 2) Start the process again and restore your DVD to your flash drive again. You may also have to right click your thumb drive, choose properties, and check the box that says "Ignore ownership for this drive"

in the p6t se essentials.zip there is a folder called "ready" (in \p6t se essentials\script files) with 3 files. move the files to the folder above (where also the smbios2.plist is) and run the boot prep-script again - worked for me


Yeah, I may have goofed on a few things. That's why I'm planning to do an update. Hopefully tomorrow...

My progress report:

Done and :D . I finally saw the welcome screen of snow leopard.

Thank tweak41 for providing this guide, even newbie like me can install snow leopard. Thank mohnstrudl for giving me the advice.

The IOAPIC problem I got comes from the way I mount my three 2GB memory. I didn't put them in slots in the same color. I found out this when I read some other threads in this forum.

To gengstapo:

I also used this guide and the driver package P6T Essential from awol to install snow leopard on my friend's PC (with Asus P6T). Read through this thread and use that P6T Essential.

Finally i can now focus on something else.

Error while preparing booter. What I suppose to do?

IOAPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 64:87
IOAPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 88:11

This the output when I just continue the installation
How to fix it?

I had the same problem with the non-SE version of the P6T board. Looks like the DSDT.aml doesn't match the BIOS. I found the solution here:

Now it works perfectly! Hope it helps...

I have the same problem but, in my case I have allready installed SL on a hard drive. I install the last bios (0801 on a Asus P6T motherboard) the funny think is it than I put the hard drive over a P6T Deluxe V2 and SL works fine.

In my case the startup freeze in this sentences

"IOAPIC: version 0x20 Vectors 88:111"

I sow than in P6T Deluxe V2 mb the next sentences is related to the ACPI interpreter.

I try several settings on the bios but nothing happens. In my case I have


ACPI 2.0 support [Enabled]
ACPI APIC support [Enabled]


I try with -x -v -f -x32 cpus=2 etc but I stack always in the same point!!!


Anybody has any idea ????

thanks

So, I need to replace the guide DSDT.aml from the link you provide?

Probably not, but it could be a starting point to create your own DSDT.
