In Topic: [HELP] P8P67 LE Boot Hang

30 June 2011 - 07:59 PM

Yeah I have been pulling out my hair with this issue as well. So far Andy cd (ver 4 and 5) have been successful in allowing me to install 10.6.3. I can use ##### to install the proper kexts. However If I attempt to update to 10.6.7 or 10.6.8 I can no longer boot up, neither in safe mode, verbose or both at the same time. I have been seeing a lot of people are having similar issues with their video card being a xfx5770 (which I have in my rig).
I too tried #####-##### methos but unfortunately the only version of ##### that would work is the legacy version which still ended up with an inability to upgrade.
It might be a good idea to list the hardware you are using, this may allow more people pinpoint the problem.



I ended up swapping my LE for an M PRO. But I got further by switching video cards and installing the stuff that I needed to from ##### that way. I suggest installing the install package, but not restarting right away. Then you open MB and install the stuff you need to from there. I think is one thing that helped.

Also, when I tried GraphicsEnabler=No on boot, I was able to get past the white screen where it freezes. So if you're getting that, then try that boot option to avoid a freeze. Your stuff will move very slowly once you do this, but it will at least boot and then you won't have any issues for a bit while you try to fix everything. These are the options that helped me, so hopefully they help you, too. Good luck. If you have any questions, just post here and I'll see if I can help.

In Topic: Asus P8P67 Pro install guide

I'm trying to install OS X SL since a few days via AndyBoot4 cd, but without luck for now. Install runs fine but after the combo update 10.6.7 it just gets stuck a the grey apple logo on boot and with combo update 10.6.8 it gets a KP at 80% of the update process which kills the system in all.

I have a Asus Sabertooth P67 Rev. 3, which one of the install packages would fit my board the most, P8P67Pro V5.0, P8P67 V5.0 or I'm in the total wrong thread here?

Any help much appreciated!


This guide itself is for the P8P67 Pro. I have the P8P67 LE and this won't even work for me. It should work on the general principle, but it still doesn't. My video card kept mine from rebooting, so I tried an HD 4750 and that let it reboot, but it still didn't work properly. I'm just going to swap my board for a Pro and hope that will help.

Just try searching google for people with your board that have had success. You have to remember that the graphics card and CPU also matter though.

I'm gonna post in this topic. I posted in Andy's, too. I have a P8P67 LE and I have SL installed. I do the updated to 10.6.7 and reboot. After the reboot, I have tried using the old Andy boot, new Andy boot 4 and regae boot and none will start up my HDD. With regae boot, I can see the messages. If these will help, I can take a picture of the screen and post it here if needed.

Thanks.

Hello, I have a P8P67 LE and I got Snow Leopard to install fine. After that I copied the files to the desktop and installed the update. I then went to reboot and after I select my HDD with SL on it, it hangs. I see an Apple logo and a loading icon below it and that is all. Any ideas?

Thanks.
