remember the boot flags! "-v cpus=1 arch=i385 busratio=16"

I believe it is arch=i386

yes, the site seems blocked here for some reason...used a proxy and downloaded the file.


Also i reinstalled windows since my bro needed the laptop, again using MBR.

I did as you asked me, unfortunately in the single user mode it could not detect my usb. Therefore i used http://www.paragon-s...me/hfs-windows/

and copied the file.

Now here are the messages i get.

do the following please:
- boot into single-user mode
- check the file system and mount the root directory
- at the root directory, type this "ls -l > /rootlist.txt"
- go to /Extra (if it exists, if none tell me please) and type this "ls -l > /extralist.txt"
- go to /Extra/Extensions (if it exists as well) and type this "ls -l > /extra-ext-list.txt"
- reboot but startup windows with paragon-hfs
- copy the three text files from your snow partition and post it here.

right, do this one first and see if it works:
- boot into single-user mode again
- do usual check/mount
- type this chown root:wheel /mach_kernel
- and this chmod 644 /mach_kernel
- reboot with usual flags

btw, can you post your Extensions.mkext and com.apple.Boot.plist as well please.
