In Topic: Tips on installing 10.6 on P5E system

31 August 2009 - 06:26 AM

Will give it a try. No success so far because install hangs on timeout.
i'm still not sure what the problem is. gfx (hd4870), dsdt or the disabler.kext (fakesmc).

Did you have FAKESMC.kext installed in the extra/extensions folder? As far as I can tell, disabler.kext and fakesms.kext are not the same thing. hopefully this will help.

In Topic: stuck at AppleIntelCPUManagement

I have the P5E with 8800GT. I had the same problem when I tried to boot into 32bit mode, and it stucked in that timed out screen. Boot into 64bit mode was fine. I tried so many things, reinstalled kexts, repair permission, none of them helped. I just had to reinstall it again and haven't had the problem since.

I think my problem was that I tried to use my Leopard time machine backup file to do a full restore on Snow Leopard, so this time i only restore the user account, and reinstall the application. The system runs stable in both 64bit and 32bit for almost three days now.

Another thing is to use EFI studio to add both video and network card string to your com.apple.boot.plist file. It will save you from a lot of problems.
