Boot from ModCD, SL Retail DVD does not mount

31 January 2013 - 04:10 PM

I'm trying to install SL on an ASUS M4A78-EM with an AMD X2 250.

I can boot from ModCD and I get the screen showing the icons of disks and the various prompts, including the 'eject, swap and press F5'. I do that with a Retail OS X SL DVD and the ModCD icon disappears leaving the other disk icons, but nothing else happens.

The SL Retail DVD mounts in Lepoard and I can start the installer but when I get to where it asks me to pick a disk to install to, it tells me "this disk cannot be used to start up your computer". I didn't expect to be able to upgrade directly from Leopard, but I was just testing that the DVD did mount and was readable.

Any suggestions? I was going to try the i.B.o.o.t Legacy and M.u.l.t.i.b.e.a.s.t method.

(Sorry for the . . . business but the forum #'ed the names without this.)



EDIT:
I solved this by using a different retail .dmg and burning a new DVD. SL is now installed and I have a new set of problems, but I'll start a new thread for that.

Kernel panic when opening Sound Preferences

29 January 2013 - 06:44 PM

System:
ASUS m4a78-EM
AMD X2 250
Nvidia 9500 GT 1gb
Onboard Realtek ACL887

Install of 10.5.8 with iDeneb 1.6 went pretty smooth. The only issue I've found is that every time I open the Sound Preferences, I get a kernel panic. The audio is also kind of staticy at random intervals but I can live with this if it's the only issue I have.

Here is the configuration I used to install:
Installed from iDeneb v1.6 Lite (Leopard 10.5.8)
Bootloader: Chameleon v2
Kernel: 9.5.0 Kernel Voodoo
Apple Decrypt
Apple SMBIOS Patched: Apple SMBIOS 800Mhz
Disabler
DSDT Patcher
TimeMachine Fix
OpenHaltRestart
PS/2: VoodooPS2Controller
AboutThisMac Fix
SystemProfiler Fix
Fix: Seatbealt Fix
Audio: VoodooHDA
Chipset: AHCI SATA/IDE & AppleATIATA
Network: Ethernet/Realtek/ Select: RTL8169/RTL81111
Video: NVinject 0.2.1/ Select: NVinject 1024MB
