sweet gotts keep that in mind when i do mine

**edit

OK so to those who are wondering i got it to boot empire efi(the new one) and the reason it wasnt booting before, is because you have to hit F2 and make sure the F12 boot manu is enabled.

yeah i got it working so im happy, im just pissed off at rogers for this crappy 20gb limit of bandwidth, and just my luck everyone in the neighbour hood secures their routers,lol

other than that, when i booted up empire efi, it have the logo empire efi instead of the darth vader, is that how the new ones supposed to be?

How were you able to change the boot background from the MyHack bootloader? I still got the snow leopard and the takes the isuck in ihack screens. Were you able to change those?

Also, what happens if you don't apply the AMD kernel patch?

i didnt apply myhack, i used the chameleon r2 install, and that automatically applies the Storm trooper background, and, is your snow leo working without Empire efi inside? if its not...thtas wat the amd patch is for....when ur using upgrading to 10.6.2, you need a new kernel to be able to run Snow leo on AMD...thats wat the patch is for

Oh.. Well then I guess the AMD kernel patch for 10.6.2 worked coz I can boot without the Empire CD. I tried both boot loaders, the one that worked for me was the myhack. Probably because I did the combo update.

hey quick question, while im looking at my computer, how much did you guys partition off? i have 100GB free space so i was thingking make it 50GB then ill have 50gb to play around with between windows and snow leo, and i already have all the files i need on the windows disc so im thinking the disc wont be used more than that, just tossing that up ther, i thought 50gb would be a good partition...

That should be enough for everything u need, theres something else i forgot to mention.... Front Row will not work in this computer since our video card doesn't support Quartz Extreme.....u wont be able to use imovie either, since it requires Quartz Extreme also.
