    10.6.2 is out...

    I have the same exact issue with a 7600GT. Geforce.kext KPs.
  2. I don't know why but ever since I tried the bootloader installer from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t=0&start=0 my EFI has started showing up on Disk Utility and gets automounted. This has the effect of making it so my Chameleon installer reports that "The installation failed."--it ends up mounting /Volumes/EFI. If I even try to write anything to the partition, it ends up wiped out the next boot, or maybe mount. Does anyone know what went wrong? I actually got my stuff onto EFI this time. I got it to stop automounting by adding to /etc/fstab. But it still have it on Disk Utility, and I'd really like to get it off there for the more typical appearance. Is there a way?
  3. I used an OSX86 boot DVD, which got my system up with Chameleon 1.0.12 on the same partition. I now installed Chameleon 2RC3 on the EFI partition I formatted as HFS+. My problem is, it still is booting 1.0.12. How do I make this all work properly? I use GPT so I don't know if I can set partitions as active, if that's the problem...
  4. I'm using a GA-EP35-DS3L and I have a working system installed. I used Snow OS X 3.5 installer instead of retail. Problem is, the bootloader is Chameleon 1.0.12 for whatever reason and it's not booting from what it should be, the EFI partition that has all the stuff on it. How do I make it do so?

    Boot to 2nd partition?

    I had OS X on a first partition. To make a long story short, it got messed up. Anyway, I changed the first partition into a storage partition. I also made a second partition for OS X itself. Now, after installing with iPC 10.5.6, it won't boot. It tries to boot to /dev/rdisk1s2, which is the Storage partition. But I need it to boot to /dev/ridks1s3. I have GPT so I can't use the fdisk way of marking a partition active. How can I make it so it boots to /dev/rdisk1s3?
  6. I had a wrecked install and I decided it would be easier to just start over than to try to fix the damage. Would it be possible to install over an existing HFS+ partition? The only thing I have on there is my /Users/user directory, and Backups.backupdb or something that I wasn't able to delete. Would I be able to install to that and keep those files?

    USB Mass Storage Issues

    I've tried another removable storage drive, a 1gb USB stick, which works. It's just my Transcend TS-RDM5W which doesn't work. And I don't get it.
  8. I'm running a 10.5.3 Kalyway install with kernel 9.3.0. I have a Gigabyte EP35-DS3L, which has ICH9. Anyway, I've tried several USB devices. My mouse and Xbox 360 controller both work. However, my card reader does not. I've checked the manufacturer website, which said it needs no install and the volume will pop up automatically. Well, it does not. It shows up in System Profiler as "Mass Storage Device," using AppleUSBEHCI. I don't have any other EHCI devices to test, but basically, it's not in Disk Utility either... So I can't view any of the volumes on it. And there is a FAT32 partition on the microSDHC I have in the reader, which worked on Windows and Linux. Help?

    No USB 2.0?

    I just installed yesterday on a Gigabyte EP35-DS3L with 10.5.2 Kalyway upgraded to 10.5.3. I can use my mouse which I suppose is USB 1.1, but when I try to plug in my card reader, nothing happens. I saw this in dmesg: ~ root# dmesg | grep USB kmod_control/start failed for com.orByte.driver.PCGenUSBEHCI; destroying kmod \^[[33mFailed to load extension com.orByte.driver.PCGenUSBEHCI. How could I get USB 2.0 to work?
