Installation steps for 10.6

I took out the HD, attached it via USB cable to my Snow Leopard desktop Hackintosh then did the following:

1- Partition the HD using GUID Partition Table. Allocate 40GB for Snow.

2- Inserte the Snow Leopard DVD and launch the installer, choose the new partition and continue.

3- Once the installation was done copy over the /Extra folder for the 10.6.1 to the root of the Snow partition. Then copy the "boot" file there too. Reboot and it should work fine.

4- Copy the desired Kexts from the collection included to your /System/Library/Extensions/

What you need to copy there is:

-Broadcom Wifi
-IDT Sound
-Keyboard & Trackpad €Please check the inclosed text on [HOW TO] Get the Trackpad Preference Pane back in 10.6.1 / 10.6€
-nVidia 9200M GS GPU ->> there are two versions, one that works under 32Bit mode and gives you 1GB of VRAM, and one that works under both 32Bit & 64Bit modes but gives you only 512MB of VRAM. You choose.
-SATA AHCI Fix
-WebCam & USB

later you can update to 10.6.2 using the combo update DMG file from Apple's website, but you MUST remove DSMOS.KEXT from /Extra/Extensions/ to avoid kernel panics.
Also you MUST replace both SleepEnabler.kext & NullCPUPowerManagement.kext with the ones from the 10.6.2 Extra folder.
You could simply copy the whole foolder to your / and replace the original. Always backup first

Please read Netkas post at http://netkas.org/?p=315

I have included Info files and snapshots of my system, please read.

Important

Do NOT disable Button Sound in BIOS, otherwise you wont be able to turn on your Wifi card!

Card Reader Kext is EXPERIMENTAL. It didn't work fine for me. Some reported it as working. Try at your own.

Again, if you update to 10.6.2 You MUST remove DSMOS.KEXT from /Extra/Extensions/ to avoid kernel panics.
Also you MUST replace both SleepEnabler.kext & NullCPUPowerManagement.kext with the ones from the 10.6.2 Extra folder.



Please get the installation package from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?mmzmzodzmyk

Hope this helps anyone.

Thanks Netkas!

I have Installed the 10.6 SL, on my DV5 but I still don't have sound, mouse or keyboard. I read your guide, but I don't know how to install the kext, I tried kext helper and OSX86tolls, but when i put the kext i downloaded in the software, the install button doesn't work and the OSX86 doesn't accept the kext. I need help, thanks.

Can you confirm that, these kexts are working on 10.6.2. They were working great until 10.6.2. After the updates, I can't get it worked again. I think AppleHDA have better sound that VoodooHDA.

I used the original 10.6 DVD that came with my Macbook Pro. It works just fine.
You need to browse to "/Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Installation/Packages" then launch the "OSInstall.mpkg" to start the installer. Use any running 10.6 machine to do this to avoid a corrupted installation. When I did that from a Leopard installation I ended up with non-working disk utility and some other bugs.

I have 10.6.3 running on my system and has working sound with these drivers. (I installed both appleHDA and VoodooHDA. I used kext helper cuz E/E did not work.)

After updating to 10.6.3, I started to have problems with left usb port, webcam and bluetooth. it happens most of the time. Wifi and Bluetooth on/off button doesn't turn into blue automatically before booting, which was working on 10.6.2. I had to touch it now prior to boot and it only sometimes work.

Does anyone have a similar problem?
