I have successfully installed Leohazard's 10.6.2 Snow Leopard on my netbook using an external DVD drive. When I boot into verbose mode from Chameleon, it loads without any problem. Then there's the problem. I get the sound of the OS X Setup Intro, but while this is playing there is just a blank grey screen.

I was wondering if anyone could help me solve this. I have no idea how to fix this without being able to get into the OS without an interface, only Single User Mode works and I have no idea what I need and what to type to get this to work.

I've tried various installations and have been troubleshooting this for days and nothing seems to be doing the trick.

I hope you can help me!

Boot with GraphicsEnabler=No.

If that doesn't work, try single user mode, and run:

mount -uw /

mkdir /bad_kexts

mv ATI* /bad_kexts

mv NVDA* /bad_kexts

mv AppleIntelHD* /bad_kexts

then reboot.

Note that once you do get it working, you'll need these kexts for a decent resolution:


Download the .zip file, then install with http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=1331

Good luck!
