So it turns out I needed to boot into the 32 bit kernel but the problems never stop. Does anyone have their headphone port working?

So I was finally able to get the hazard disk to work. From their forums I discovered that you had to delete a kext:\
1. Download the Extra and kexts package provided by Mianos here:[url="http://dievolksvertreter.de/downloads/E"]http://dievolksvertreter.de/downloads/E[/url] ... wKexty.zipSave the zip file on a USB key (formated as FAT - readable in Mac OS)2. Get Hazard ISO of Mac OS Snow (the one we are talking about on this forum)3. Install it with this:- basic install +- Update 10.6.2 Combo +- Chameleon V2 RC3 10.5 (works also with 10.3)- VoodooHDAThat's it. You can try adding other stuffs if needed. It wasn't necessary forme.4. After install, if you reboot normally you will get a Kernel panicSo when you have the "Chameleon" screen, press any keyYou enter the options modetype " -x " and then enter (you specify that you are booting in safe mode)Rem: whatever install you do with Hazard ISO, it will boot in safe mode.5. You enter Mac OS Snow in safe mode.Now remove the file:rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext6. With OSX86 ToolsUpdate cache mkext, etc. (Actually, I sounds like this step is not mandatory)7. Insert your USB Key and copy the folder Extra (on your USB key) tothe root of your Mac OS installation (/).The com.apple.Boot.plist contains the right String for the graphic cardnVidia FX 770 M (512 Mb).don't forget to put it in the folder /Extra8. Reboot normally nowYou should have a clean working Mac OS Snow.Good luck and enjoyEspe

Now I cannot get audio working at all. Was wondering if anyone could help. System Profiler reports that I have an Intel High Definition Audio with a device ID: 0x103C30E7. Thanks.

So it turns out the kernel extensions that I had weren't 64 bit, which explains why when I boot into 32 bit mode I got sound.

So a friend of mine and myself have been attempting to get snow leopard working on our elitebooks for two weeks now with no success. We always get kernel panics. He has used a method I am not familiar with that requires restoring the snow leopard retail disk to a flash drive and editing files on the drive. I just tried the hazard disk that the above user has mentioned, with the exact same items checked off and I still got a kernel panic. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction. BTW iPC 10.5.6 with the additional installs mentioned on the first page in this thread have worked for me. Thanks in advanced.

I've been looking all over for the images for the Tiger Menu Bar. Would it be possible for you to post them here GeekOfComputers? Thanks in advanced though that looks sick.
