Did you ever try or were you successful upgrading to 10.6.6? Every time I try when I reboot I get the circle with the line through it on the silver apple screen.

No, I haven't tried upgrading yet. That symbol usually means OS X had a kernel panic. You can try copying and overwriting your kernel with Prasys' kernel (from http://prasys.info/2...kernel-is-out/) to see if that works in the root directory. Do you have Windows also installed as the same hd? ..this would make replacing the kernel file easy with say MacDrive installed.

Did you follow any upgrading guide before running the update? (they usually have a number of precautions and steps to do before and after the upgrade...I just noticed on Prasys page with the 10.6.6 kernel he created a package to run immediately after running the update [before rebooting] to replace the kernel). You can try using the ModCD to do a repair as well. Hope this helps, and sorry if it doesn't..I find updating OSX on hackintosh a hit or miss.

Thanks very much for those additional details launchcontrol - I finally got sleep on lid close working using LidSleep.kext.

Regarding the two finger scrolling and trackpoint, you might want to try the kext available from the link below - I have 2 finger scrolling and a working trackpoint on my T61:


Let us know if it works!


I tried installing another SleepEnabler.kext and on reboot my trackpad and buttons stopped working :(
Removing the kext from my /Extra/Extensions folder didn't make it work again. Odd, I tried inserting the ThinkpadUltraNav.kext, but I think it won't work until I get my trackpad working again.

Thanks for this very useful guide. I'm currently running OS X 10.6.5 on my T61 and very pleased that virtually everything works well (including the SD card reader using the voodooSDHC kext). Only thing I'm still trying to get to fully work is the sleep on lid close.

Just a couple of questions: I'm assuming you have full video acceleration with QE/CI? Is the trackpad fully functional with two finger scrolling - and also the trackpoint? Does it sleep on lid close? How is the battery life under OS X?

Hi yahboo-

I tried getting the SD card reader to work following this guide by prasys, but no luck. With the Intel graphics card on both my previous T400 and currently T410, video does not get full acceleration with QE/CI. When buying, choose the one with nvidia graphics for any luck. Trackpad works, but no two finger scrolling/zooming as that feature requires software even in Windows. Trackpoint does not work natively (haven't tried to get it working either to know if it can work).

Connecting a displayport to DVI cable to my external monitor on boot up does work (laptop screen goes blank), but it's limited to 1600x1200 resolution max (unfortunately my external screen is 1920x1200).

Battery life is good, don't notice a difference when switching between XP or OS X.

For sleepmode use sleepenabler, but I have no need for it so haven't tried.

In your signature, you list having the Quadro NVS 3100M graphics card, do you get full acceleration with QE/CI?
To answer your question with more info, yes, my T410 has the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 5700MHD - AMT.

Have 10.6.2 running fine on a T400, then upgraded to T410 and when booting using the same hard-drive it crashes on startup, right when apple logo appears after choosing OSX from Chameleon's boot-manager. Upgraded to 10.6.3 back on the T400 and applied the latest Chameleon 2.0 RC5 build, but still crashes. Have busratio=20 set as well (i5 520M)

Placed all new kext from timurx's post (removed the VoodooHDA.kext to avoid any issues). Any ideas?
