  1. Anybody successfully install SL on the IONITX D-E board? Upon installation a I get is a kernel panic on startup. I followed Michael Glass' instructions. What am I missing, they should be basically the same motherboard? Can anybody help?
  2. The Snow Leopard Install Guide you've been waiting for has arrived! Check out Adam Pash's new guide, "How to Build a Hackintosh with Snow Leopard, Start to Finish" describes step-by-step how to make a Snow Leopard USB boot drive. Installation was as simple and foolproof. Not 100%, but well worth a try! Good luck!

    Hey, I'm glad to hear that your installation was as simple and foolproof as mine! Are you sure that you have full video support? In System Profiler/Graphics/Displays, does your display show Quartz Extreme: Supported? Can you play a DVD video with DVD Player?

    Yureka! Initially, I was unable to get your USB disk image to boot on my EX58-UD5. But Adam Pash's excellent guide "How to Build a Hackintosh with Snow Leopard, Start to Finish" describes step-by-step how to make a Snow Leopard USB boot drive. Using his guide, Snow Leopard installed flawlessly but lacked onboard ethernet and I was unable to get any support for my 8800GT video card no matter what I tried. On a hunch, I opened your boot file and substituted your Extra file for the guide's recommended Extra file, and Voila! The result: A Leopard/Snow Leopard USB Chameleon boot drive with almost everything working out of the box! The only things not working to be fully functional is Core Image/Quartz Extreme and Sleep. When I boot my stable Leopard drive with the USB boot drive, the no CI/QE and no Sleep issue occurs then too. My Leopard install with the onboard Chameleon-2.0-RC2-r640 works flawlessly, but no sleep. CI/QE are critical for every day use. I've tried adding kexts from my stable Leopard's Extra folder to the flash drive's Extra/AdditionalExtensions folder to remedy the problem, but I've had no success. I hope this Leopard/Snow Leopard USB Chameleon boot drive is just what the Hackintosh community needs to fully embrace the Snow Leopard experience. Can you modify your Extra file to fix the no CE/QE issue? Link to Adam Pash's guide: http://lifehacker.com/5351485/how-to-build...start-to-finish
