Install hangs just before screen when I select my language

09 January 2010 - 10:12 PM

I am trying to install SL from a retail 10.6 img to a Toshiba core duo laptop (950 graphics). After I select the partition with the installation, the pinwheel starts spinning and the screen turns grey and the mouse point disappears and hangs. This is the grey screen that appears just before the language selections screen. Any idea what is causing it to hang?

I have used dsdtpatcher gui v1.01 to create the dsdt.aml file (0 errors, 6 warnings) and my /Extra/Extensions folder has the gma950 kext, ioatafamily kext, and fakesmc kext.

Asus P5B-VM sata ports not working under SL 10.6.2

27 December 2009 - 02:53 PM

I installed SL 10.6 onto an Asus P5B-VM motherboard using a retail dvd but drives connected to sata ports 3 & 4 were not seen under DU. I upgraded to 10.6.2 via Software Update but the drives still weren't recognized. I examined the info.plist under IOATAFamily.kext and AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext to make sure that my device IDs (ven 8086, IDs 2820 for 2-port, 2820 for 4-port) were listed under ich8. I have tried various kexts from Netkas and this forum without success.

I'm running SL 10.6.2, 64 bit, c2d e4300, and Asus 8400gs.

If anyone has a potention solution, please let me know.


(Solved) Can't get QE/CI for 8500gt 512mb under SL

01 December 2009 - 01:08 AM

Hi everyone,

I hope that someone can help me with a problem I'm having.

I was able to do a vanilla install of 10.6 on my Asus P5WDH with an nVidia 8500gt 512mb card. I was also able to update to 10.6.2 via Software Update without any problems. I was playing around with the system and screwed things up so I re-installed everything from scratch. Now, I can't play DVDs whereas I could before. It looks like QE/CI is not enabled for my current installation whereas it was on my previous installation. I have tried different versions of NVinject and NVenabler without success.

Anyone know how I can get QE/CI back? Any information would be appreciated.
