  1. I can't check my chameleon. Won't boot into the mac drive at all. At first boot up when you can hit "esc" etc to get into bios config, it hangs at "verifying DM pool data". Won't get past that. Guess I'll have to get a new HDD and install clean to get to the rest.
  2. where can I find these SMBIOS profiles you talk about? Like I said, it booted fine with Snow Leopard until I duplicated the drives. Now it gets hung up at "verifying DM pool data" before it ever gets to the screen that allowed me to choose which mac drive I wanted to boot from. I need to get it to boot before I can even attempt installing a newer version again. It's like the bootloader is missing now. When I look at the BIOS settings and go into "Hard Disk Boot Priority", the drives aren't showing but in the Windows BIOS, they are. I created a new BIOS profile duplicating the windows one and changing the necessary stuff but still gets hung up at the same spot.
  3. I had 2 Sata drives going bad and had to replace them. I am running OSX.6.8 on a gigabyte EP35-DS3R mobo. It has been great for years. Tried to go to 10.7 but said "could not be installed on this machine". Anyway, I used drive genius to duplicate the drive that was going bad and could not be repaired through disk utility. It booted once and everything was there. I duplicated the other drive and now my hack won't boot and gets stuck at "verifying DM pool data" on startup. BIOS hasn't changed. Only duplicated the drives but now it gets stuck. I don't know what to do and don't want to lose everything by doing a fresh install on a wiped drive. What's missing? Any help is appreciated.
  4. GOT IT! copied the contents to the extra folder and voila! working. posting from it now. used lizard to get graphics right and did migration assistant. just need to install licenses and all is good. use USB audio which is working fine after copy/paste, I did software update to 10.6.6 and rebooted just fine. Do I have to have Chameleon installed on each partition I have SL on or just once on the HD? I am now installing it on a second HD with two partions. One for test and one working. Does each one need Chameleon on it or can I boot either partition from one chameleon install on the same HD?
  5. I think I got it. I need to copy the contents of the "extra" folder with the DSDT to the extra folder that was installed by chameleon. Is that right? In the video I just see the folder being highlighted but not sure what is happening there.
  6. can you please show me in list view? is it under system? When I installed chameleon, it also installed a folder named extra. I apologize but could you please be specific on "how" to install to the root. When I look at icon view like your picture, there is an "extra" folder there but it is the one chameleon installed and not the one with the DSDT. I understand I need to install the "extra" folder with the DSDT to the root of the HD. Is the root the "system" folder? If I move the extra folder from the desktop to the HD window in icon view, it wants to replace the one that chameleon installed. I want to get this right so if you could be specific on the "how" to do it, it would help tremendously. Did I install chameleon incorrectly? In my icon view I see the following: Applications, boot file, extra (installed by chameleon, not the one with the DSDT), library, system, users.
  7. do I paste to "system/library" folder or just "system" folder or just "library" folder when you say root?
  8. I moved the extra folder, from your download link, from downloads to the desktop and put the patched DSDT inside it. Is that all I have to do? Just install chameleon now? Or do I copy it and paste it into system/library?
  9. thank you for your help. As I said I haven't done this for a very long while. I am searching forums but can not find the terminal steps to get the extra folder to the root. Would you please list the terminal steps for me? I just need to get the extra folder to the root so I can install chameleon.
  10. DSDT editor and patcher

    So I can just drag the extra folder I downloaded from MaLd0n http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...=dsdt&st=40 to the desktop? How do I get it to the root? I then install chameleon and then run the auto patcher? Or run the auto patcher and then install chameleon? So it would be: sudo -s sudo cp -R ~/Desktop/Extra / exit ? I'm not good at terminal. It's been two years since I've tried installing any of this so it's all new again. Thank you for your help.
  11. DSDT editor and patcher

    can you please go through the terminal steps to do this? thanks for your help.
  12. DSDT editor and patcher

    Is your extra folder installed to the root of the partition or just on the desktop? can it be moved from the desktop to just be in the main folders list on the drive? Does Chameleon search the entire partition for the extra folder or a specific location?
  13. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Do I have to install the extra folder with patched DSDT to the root through terminal or just leave it on the desktop?
  14. I have the Extra folder on my desktop and put the DSDT in there after auto patcher. Do I need to install the extra folder to root of SL partition first or just run the installer. Sorry for the questions. It's been a long time since I built my hack. This is all new to me. After Cham install, it should reboot fine. Yes?
  15. Do I install Chameleon to the same partition as SL? Do I have to use terminal or just run the installer?
