Hi, hopeful new osx86 user here. I've gotten so far as to get the Combo Update 10.6.8 installed. But when I go to boot up, it gives me the apple logo and then where it should go to the desktop, I get a black screen instead. Now not a Kernel Panic, it looks like it actually loads, just no video.
Here are my system specs and what I've done.
i7-2720QM w/Intel HD Graphics 3000
8 Gb DDR3
Radeon HD6770M 2Gb
I used i Boot Legacy with flag PCIRootUID=1 to run the 10.6 Retail Installer. It installed just fine. Rebooted using i Boot Legacy without flags and got to run through the setup. Afterwards is where the problem lies.
It's a Sandy Bridge system so I'm running UpdateHelper. Then rebooting using i BootLegacy, again without flags. Ran the 10.6.8 Combo Update. DID NOT REBOOT. Installed 10.6.8 Legacy Kernel. Ran ####### and Installed ########. Then I rebooted. That's where the issue happens.
If I run with the -v flag, everything seems normal, and where it's supposed to kick to the Desktop, It just goes black
I've tried all combinations of boot flags I can think of
I can boot to safe mode, but I cannot do anything with keyboard or trackpad.
Anyone have any ideas?

I have in the past month installed and reinstalled about 50+ times.( just like a lot of others I would imagine). I found after updating I would get probs, I started typing, update.... and each time it worked. Nothing else, just the command .. update.

I think this is a new record, I've never seen anyone use so many TonyMac tools at the same time. You should definitely go to the TonyMac forums for support.
I'm running UpdateHelper. Then rebooting using i BootLegacy (...) Ran Multi Beast and Installed EasyBeast. Then I rebooted. That's where the issue happens.

I got it sorted, turned out I just needed to modify my DSDT to be able to take advantage of the higher res screen in my laptop. I'm posting from it now.
