Trouble booting after update to 10.6.6

10 February 2011 - 01:07 AM

I've been screwing with this new machine for about a week now, trying to get 10.6.6 running stable on it. I've tried every boot disk from ##### to nawcom to kakewalk, and they all work until I update to 10.6.6. I'm able to get everything running, except for graphics drivers which I havent tried. Then After the 10.6.6 update, it loads almost all the way, then gets stuck at "com.apple.driver. ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin : start" or something like that.

It doesn't help to boot in safe mode.

it's an i7 950, EVGA x58 SLI3 motherboard with a Diamond 5870 1GB.

Can somebody give me some advice?


Model ID Problems

04 July 2010 - 03:29 PM

So, I got 10.6.4 installed on my Supermicro x7dal using the retail install method. It took very minimal work to get it working, just install pcefi 10.6 on the install disc and a couple of the kexts.

Now my only problem is that the model id shows up in system profiler as an iMac8,1. My system almost exactly resembles a first gen Mac Pro with dual dual core 2.66 xeons, intel 5000x chipset and ddr2 5300 FBDIMMs.

I've been searching on how to change this Model ID and cant find anything conclusive or helpful. I've tried changing it in appleSMBIOS.kext, but it doesnt work, usually only changing the model then nothing else such as processor info or memory info.

I've read some places that it's built into the kernel during install, but I don't believe this is the case, but if I'm wrong please correct me.

Help would be much appreciated!
