until I was stupid enough to do an 10.6.8. v1.1 update and reinstall some .kext my Hackintosh worked like a charm for the last four years. I set it up with Kakewalk back then and never had any trouble, see the components in the list below. But right now it fails to boot and I don't have a clue how do get it running again, because I didn't had a look into the whole game for years.
Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L F11b
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Sparkle GeForce 9800GT 512MB
4GB Kingston HyperX DIMM DDR2-1066
1TB Hitachi HDD
Here's where the boot process stops; I think the reason is a wrong FakeSMC.kext I reinstalled:
ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::pushCPU_CSTData - _CST evaluation faileACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::registerLPCDriver - failed to locate SMC driver ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::pushCPU_CSTData - _CST evaluation failed ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::registerLPCDriver - WARNING - LPC device initialization failed: C-state power management not initialize systemShutdown false
Being in this kinda dumb situation right now, I got two questions:
1. Is there any way to fix this, maybe by exchanging the aforementioned FakeSMC.kext with the right one?
2. If not, is there any way to access the HDD (with a bootloader or cd) to copy my personal data from the boot partition to an external hdd?
As you may see in the last question: I'm not hesitating to do a fresh install, but I need a lot of the date on that drive before I can do that. Thanks in advance!
