  1. Good Attempt but this will still not work for Raid Helper Partitions
  2. Here are my steps High Level Follow the steps from this Thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=76404 1. I Created the Raid Slices from scratch ( Assuming you have a working Snow Leopard) 2. Install Snow leopard onto your Raid Volume from the Osinstall.mpkg from the 10.6 Image or DVD.. Install process does automatically install additional files in the helper partitions of each slices "Boot OSX" , you will notice this is different than Leopard Before trying to boot make sure your have patched the S/L/E with the necessary kexts. and manually copied the boot sectors etc total 640 0 drwxr-xr-x 10 root wheel 408 Sep 7 15:34 . 0 drwxrwxrwt@ 9 root admin 306 Sep 8 18:14 .. 0 drwx------ 3 root wheel 102 Sep 7 10:43 .Spotlight-V100 0 d-wx-wx-wt@ 3 root wheel 102 Sep 8 18:14 .Trashes 0 drwx------ 3 root wheel 102 Sep 8 18:14 .fseventsd 0 drwxr-xr-x@ 6 root wheel 204 Sep 7 14:18 Extra 0 drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Sep 7 11:53 System 608 -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 309344 Sep 7 14:03 boot 0 drwxr-xr-x 5 root wheel 170 Sep 7 15:34 com.apple.boot.R 32 -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 15818 Sep 7 14:18 dsdt.aml 3. What you see above is the Final set of files folders each of the slices will have. 4. Extra/Extensions contain the needed kexts 5. It also contains com.apple.Boot.plist & dsdt.aml, i have placed this in two places not sure which one is used 6. Note the boot file also present in each slice make sure you build the mkext cache with the automatic method by "touch /System/Library/Extensions" as it updates the caches in all the necessary places (you can see it in /var/log/system.log) see mine / locked; waiting for lock. Sep 7 14:37:54 Mac-Pro com.apple.kextcache[309]: Created mkext archive //System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext.

Sep 7 14:37:57 Mac-Pro kextd[10]: updated kernel boot caches with this you should be good
