Hi there. Need some help.. I managed to install it. After it rebooted after install, my PC was stuck at boot, nothing came up on the screen. So I had to Clear my CMOS. Then I went through the initial setup and tried to install Chameleon with The installer. After I rebooted, I had to clear my CMOS AGAIN to get it to start up again. Then after that I booted with -v -f and I got left with a blank screen. I remembered to change settings after clearing for SATA. But I need to stop the problem where I have to keep clearing my CMOS with ther jumpers. It's quite annoying everytime I try to reboot. Thanks!! :)

"So how you are going to help me?"
haha you sound so demanding

we'll try the DSDT first, go to windows download DSDTSE for windows, then click get DSDT, then once it loads click compile dsdt. a explorer window will pop up, give me the just made DSDT file.

thanks!


I was not allowed to upload attachment, so uploaded at mediafire: here they are Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 DSDT

I ran the DSDTSE, clicked "Extract DSDT", new window compiled, got two files with extension dsl and aml. Please check them.

Can you please tell me how to use this custom DSDT with my snow leopard retail/iatkos/hazard DVD during installation?

and another thing, can I use this DSDT on any other system or just for my system?

that mobo only, this can be used., maybe for other systems with identical mobo and mobo rev, ex 2.0 etc.

the easiest way to get this dsdt injected would to use a retail boot method. what are you currently using to boot the retail DVD? mohammedkhairy's boot cd?

mohammedkhairy: is it possible to edit that boot cd? or do you have all the kexts kernels etc on it so that it can be remade with a cd maker?

EDIT\\ their is a preboot.dmg, so mount cd as editable and edit the dmg with DSDT.

I tried nawcom bootcd latest one, I tried injecting the dsdt using magiciso, but it is giving error, I think windows can't read/write HFS+ file system. any other good way to inject the dsdt in windows?

put "elliotforcelegacy.kext" in /Extra/Extensions, get it from my guides ( see signature ).

this kext stops the bios resets on Snow and Lion once and for all.

@sirbow2
well i managed a osx install on my friend and streamed the dsdt on nawcom modcd. so far the USB problem is gone i think, because the error message did not appear using the modified bootcd. but a new problem appeared which was not seen earlier. the message is like below attachment

Posted Image

when i had the usb problem, i did not have this atapi error, and i reached till the install screen of OSX Snow Leopard. Recently i did not make any bios update or any change in sata device or its port. can you please remodify the dsdt again or a guide to modify the dsdt on my own, what to change etc.

another problem is no bootcd is able to solve the "nvenabler: probe fails" error, any best idea how to solve it?

Hey! Thanks for you guide, it has helped me a lot.

Only problem is, I get very inconsistent results. I did your original install method, then the 2nd one for people who were still having trouble booting up. This worked the first time I restarted, but then the 2nd time it hangs on the grey apple logo and does not do anything else.

My bypass around this was to type -v at the loading screen, then proceed with loading the operating system.

For whatever reason, loading the OS through verbose works, but not without.

Any ideas? I suppose it is not a big deal, but thought it was rather odd.

Thanks!

yes, very odd, all -v does is print the boot up sequence and errors etc to screen.. weird.

but now you have the awesome feeling of a OSX booting to life on a PC via terminal :(

Here's a noob question:

When he says in his after setups instructions to:


* open terminal and type this command

sudo -s
rm /mach_kernel
amd_insn_patcher /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib.patched
cp /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib.patched /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib
update_dyld_shared_cache

That looks like a series of commands, can we just copy and paste that whole thing beginning with "rm /mach_kernel", or how does that work? Because every way I have tried I receive errors about lack of permission, etc...

So everything is running smoothly, I was wondering if I should try updating it. I used this guide to get my setup running well. Is there any advantages to the new updates?

it wants to update;
itunes 10.5
ilife 9.0.4
osx 10.6.8
airport 5.5.3
remote desktop 3.5.1

I realize the 10.6.8 is the hurdle here, the rest will probably work and i probably don't need then anyway. If I decide to try it whats the best/easiest way to backup (full backup like chameleon and all) on to a partition on the same drive? and restore if all hell breaks loose?

Hey Guys,

Well I have got this up and running with no troubles... That was until I installed more ram in to my computer.

This WAS working with 4 gigs (1 stick) of DDR3 1600 Corsair XMS RAM, and in fact it still works when I added another 2 gig stick to it. However, when I put in 4 identical 4 gig sticks (16 gigs totals) the computer boots up normally, but will not open programs. It says "Logic 9 has unexpectedly quit". And will redisplay this message everytime I open a program, in this case Logic 9.

Any ideas would be great... is this something an updated kext would solve?

PS - I have tried every different combination of ram, and ram slots.
