Well, I finally got Snow installed on my P5K Pro. I installed from the retail CD from my Leopard installation on to a SATA drive attached to an X-Drive USB 2.0 SATA to USB adapter. The SATA drive plugs in to the X-drive base, and
the base hooks up to the USB.
After installing I booted in to the installation using RebelEFI, and installed Jimmy's P5K-Family_10.6.2.pkg, NVEnabler 64.kext (Graphics card), IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector (Orange drive fixer), then installed the Chameleon 2 RC3.pkg
I was then able to boot in to the drive, and installed all of the updates to bring me up to 10.6.5.
It has been working for 2 days, with the drive attached to the USB, with no problems (I don't use Sleep, so I do not know if that works.) but sound, internet/network and graphics (EVGA 8800GT 512) all work fine. Itunes connects to my Gen 1 Apple TV via WiFi, and to my iPad through the USB. My MagicJack USB phone works, and my USB Flash drive. It Recognizes the printer and USB drive connected to my Airport Extreme router.
I thought I had read elsewhere that there were USB issues, but I don't seem to be having them. Could someone elaborate on what the USB issues are?
Also Jimmy, I know you don't monitor here very often, as you are mostly out of the hackintosh world, but I'd like to
know what problems you had with bluetooth? I was thinking about getting a bluetooth USB Dongle, and I'd like to
know what issues to look for.
I had tried this installation a while back on an old drive, and it worked, but the drive crashed about a week later. When I emailed Jimmy about it working, He suggested I go to kexts.com and update the kexts provided in his package. I started to do that tonight, and downloaded the VooDooHDA 2.7.2 Kext, and installed it, but it did not work, No sound from any program, and a hissing sound from the audio and a strange grating noise when I moved the volume slider.
Do I need to edit something in the KEXT? Could some of you that are using this kext with Snow tell me what version
you are using?
At any rate I have unplugged the drive from the USB and plugged it in to a SATA port on my computer, and if it keeps working I will Clone it over to the boot partition on my 1tb main drive.
About the time I get this all working Lion will come out and it will be time to start all over.
