I swear there were two posts, I even got two e-mail notifications. It disappeared!

If it's not in the backup then it wasn't there when you ran the installer. The installer just moves the existing /Extra folder in it's entirety to the backup folder. Do you have an /Extra/DSDT.DATE-TIME? If you do, that's the old one. If not you can grab one from the end of the old thread. One of Fabio's should be there somewhere.



the new one is in the extra folder now...

old one is in the root directory...

why is the new one in extra and not the root??? do i simply remove the old one from the root and then new one will be used...

OK. I usually put it in Extra, but the root is another valid location. Just rename the one in Extra and move the one from the root into Extra.

Although maybe it was picking up the one in the root first and not using the new one in Extra? You can figure it out from here.

Edit: I'll adjust the next installer to look for a dsdt.aml or DSDT.aml in the root and move it into the backup folder.

Thank you soooooooo much dude! This is FANTASTIC! I've searched for months and tried for months to get Leopard installed, i came across this thread, went out tonight, bought Snow Leopard for £25, followed your instructions and everything just......WORKED. I haven't had to anything. My GFX works great, USB Audio Controller just worked, Network just worked. It's amazing!

Just can't thank you enough!!! Genius!! Thank you!

Just one question (sorry for double-posting).

As you might guess everything just went out fine for me -_-

I have an 80gb IDE Drive for SL and a 1tb S-ATA drive for my windows 7 installation.

Chameleon works just great so that dual booting is no problem at all.


The only thing that would be even greater is if I could see my S-ATA drive in Mac OS.
I checked the System-Profiler but I can only see my IDE drive.



Do you have any idea which kext could helpt with that or should I just let it be <_< ?

Thanks in advance!

With certain video cards you have to be careful on updates. netkas is the man when it comes to graphics card support, check out this page:

You can ignore everything but the stuff about your video card.

I`m here too!! The guide looks cool! I will try and also...finalizing the dam raid 0 guide. I told my friends and they are pulling me in 50 ways to explain them how to make it work...at least 10 of my friends have bought Highpoint raid recently, thinking of making a deal with them lol I can some extra money from them lol.....nevermin, Happy to be here!


First things first... DAAAAAAAAAMMMN!!!!! This is absolutely insanely easy to do with this walk-through! Dude, you abso-frikin-lutely ROCK! I've been working at this, on this and other machines for almost 2 weeks now and the easiest before this was my EeePC 1000HE, where the guide author did a similar thing by bunching up the patches and made a custom boot132 disk. But there were still several other steps and didn't have an awesome implementation of Chameleon2.

Yours was literally as easy as 1 - 2 - 3. I read the guide a few times before starting, mostly because I was like, no, it can't be this easy, I'm missing something. But it WAS! Of course, I did the marking of the partition as active in the initial post install actions, right after installing your package. I'm just in Awe! I'm looking for the donate button!

So, I do have just one issue, and I'm guessing it shouldn't be TOO hard to fix. Per your guide I set my bios to AHCI instead of RAID. The problem is that my Windows 7 installation is on 2 hard drives that are in a RAID 1 - they are separate from the Mac drive. I tried booting into W7 as is, but it blue screened on boot. I set the bios to RAID again, and it booted normal. However, when I boot into SL, I get the boot fail icon on the apple. Reseting back to AHCI allows SL to boot fine again. So essentially, I'm up and running, but would like to be able to keep the bios on RAID so I don't have to go into the bios to decide what to boot. BTW, your Chameleon install picks up W7 no matter what! Oh, and I would also like to configure Chameleon to choose a default OS, or last OS automatically after a time-out period. That would be nice. But I think I'll try to do that myself by RTFM. LOL

So, if you know of a way to get my SL to accept the RAID setting (even though the Mac disk is not a RAID disk), PLEASE let me know!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm not worthy! (think of bill and ted)

Nevermind - I simply forgot to switch to AHCI instead of IDE!

By the way I have the P6T SE not the deluxe and everything just worked fine except of the audio because it has ALC1200 not ALC888!

For those of you who also have the SE Version use the kext you find here:

The boot loader is a blend of Chameleon and PC EFI with patches from AsereBLN. All credit to him for his work. These patches will be in the next release of Chameleon and PC EFI.

I've made 2 partitions 1 for my W7 (600gb) and 1 for SL (400gb) does it erase my W7 partition after installing SL?! Or can I just select the second partition without crashing my W7?

Just wanted to Thank dgobe & iFabio for an excellent tutorial. I am a newbie when it comes to hackintosh. I followed your guide it works great only issue was my Logitech PS2 keyboard would not work in SL changed keyboard out to an USB logitech and now its flawless. All updates to SL are downloaded and installed. This install is making my friend that just purchase an 27" iMac green with envy.. LOL ;)

@MrSato
There isn't an easy workaround for the RAID. You could purchase a RAID card and run your Windows drives off of it....maybe get one that's supported by OS X too with enough ports to use with both OS's if you wanted. Kennyman will have a guide sometime soon for the Highpoint RocketRAID cards.

@lwddevil
There is a Multiboot forum that you should visit and make sure you have important data backed up before you try anything.

@phongxu
Have you tried the arch=i386 GraphicsEnabler=n boot flags that were detailed earlier? If that doesn't work you can pull one of your video cards to get it up and running. Use Google to find how to get SLI working. Not having a supported video configuration will be the biggest obstacle to a successful installation.

@ryzerx
The PS/2 kext is loaded in the ISO but it's not copied by the installer package...I'll change that for the next installer.



There is plenty of information out there waiting to be found with Google...

We can give you explicit instructions. Just ask him for a drink and when he leaves the room you can get to work. Feel free to PM me.

For me the language (I'm italian) stopped me.

There is a script for autodump on osxproject!

We hope good news .. :(
