Hey, big thanks, PimentelX86, for following through with me!! Is this a great board, or what?
I'm so glad you asked, because I've got a very puzzling problem with MyHack this time. When I ran MyHack 3.3 to create the bootable USB install disk for ML, it worked perfectly. After it completed the ML USB prep, when I looked at the contents of the USB drive, there were plenty of files visible, and the installation went smoothly.
But when I ran MyHack to create a bootable USB install disk for Snow Leopard, it only appears to run OK. There are no error messages produced during the MyHack run, and it took more than an hour to transfer something to the USB drive, but after it finished and I looked at the USB drive, there were zero visible files! Not only that, I couldn't boot from it, either.
The most baffling aspect of all is the weird fact that while creating the SL install, MyHack never prompted me for the location of the Snow Leopard install image. At the point I expected this prompt, instead it always reports:
Looking for OS X 10.6 Installation Volume...
OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard Install DVD found.
What's so weird about that? Well, it says that even when there's no such thing anywhere on any of my partitions or DVD drives (even after I explicitly deleted it)! And there's not even the tiniest detectable pause before the second line (DVD found) appears. Since it's acting kinda delusional about that part, it's no real surprise that the USB drive ends up with no files on it...
I'm going to investigate the archived MyHack site yet again to see what I might have done wrong or how to fix the problem, but do you mind if I ask another noob question? Since MyHack doesn't seem to work right for installing Snow Leopard (at least so far), can you recommend a different method for me? One that installs on a GPT partition with a non-UEFI BIOS (and does NOT use any TonyMacx86 or other justifiably banned stuff)?
Thanks for this!
If you need help i'm in here for help...
So... Let me know how your system is? It's booting right? Than ML as SL?
