  1. I actually sold this laptop and switched to a mbp, however I had sl running pretty well but I had issues with wifi working randomly and fakesmc sometimes not loading causing a kp on boot. I would recommend to stay with leopard until things are more stable on the snow side. @tormentor: I also experienced that bios resetting problem, I can't remember exactly when it happened and I had to remove the hdd and put it back to make things work again. Upgrading from leopard to snow however was a smooth process and it worked straight away apart from the wifi thing. for what concerns VoodooPS2 you have to install the snow leopard one that needs another kext to work correctly, you can find it on the voodooprojects forum basically the only difference between installing leopard and snow are the kexts you put in your boot folder, if you are upgrading you have to replace all the kexts you used in leopard with their snow leopard versions. the audio kext (by me) is still good and needs no changes to work as it used to in leopard. good luck
  2. well seriously this is such basic stuff anybody here wouldn't care about, just search over the forum... munky's method I mentioned is here and well highlighted where you would expect it to be, at the top of the genius bar. not so difficult to find: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=127330 then I guess if you don't have at least a guid partition table with a clean retail installation this process of updating from leopard to sl won't work, and I'm completely sure if something fails (and it will) you will have no idea of where to start to solve anything
  3. the new one is for snow leopard, the link works.. link
  4. well... 1) I forgot to mention first of all you should know what a boot cd is and how to make one for your system configuration.. I guess you'll find a thousand tutorials here 2) when I wrote click on the install icon I meant the Snow Leopard install program from the dvd when you are into your leopard installation 3) you have an efi folder if you are booting from the efi partition with munky's method, again.. read.
  5. well indeed I did it with no problems at all.. two ways you can do it. steps: first way 1) make a boot cd for sl with the kexts you need and test if it boots the sl dvd 2) plug the sl dvd into your drive when into leopard 3) double click on the install icon 4) click continue 5) with an sl boot cd with the kexts you need boot into your usual leopard partition (be careful, NOT the dvd) 6) go on and reboot 7) boot with the boot cd once again and replace your kexts in volumes/efi/extra/extensions.mkext or whatever with the new snow leopard ones second way, probably nicer: 1) plug the sl dvd into your drive when into leopard 2) before clicking continue, open terminal and replace all your kexts in volumes/efi/extra/extensions.mkext with the snow leopard ones (being sure you have chameleon rc3 or similar booting) 3) click continue and reboot into your usual partition 4) go on and you are updated this just worked for me but my laptop is very similar to a macbook, same chipset, graphics and even same cpu.. but I guess it should just work for pretty much everyone who has a decently os x capable pc btw should I have told this before? PS: of course I had a clean retail leopard install with a guid partition and so on and I described this here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...60&start=60
  6. well mine does with my usual dsdt.. if you're using it the problem it's probably not related to usb, what does your console say when the laptop wakes? ps: great news about 10.6.2 supporting 64 bit for x3100 'cos I'm still having problems with wifi and lan in 32 bit mode.. it definitely works randomly
  7. here you are: Boot CD for Snow Leopard first post updated with instructions
  8. well apparently wifi and lan resuscitate after waking up from a 1 minute sleep or so.. still have to find a better fix. btw stepping/graphics/sound/sleep/shutdown work, restart doesn't (yet) here's everything you need to upgrade to sl: edit: there's something wrong with the boot cd I'll fix it later steps: 1) boot into your leopard installation and plug your SL dvd in 2) double click the install OS X icon, go on 3) at some point your laptop will restart, plug the boot cd in and boot YOUR INSTALL PARTITION FROM IT 4) setup will go on and finish 5) boot your partition from the cd once again and use the install script in the after install folder this must be done only if you have a retail leopard install booting from an efi partition on your disk0 device, otherwise you'll have to modify your install script or you'll risk to lose all your data
  9. so I upgraded to snow leopard without significant problems. I'm running retail 10.6.1 with pcefi 10.3 booting from the efi partition. the annoying issue I'm experiencing is I can't get my x3100 graphics to work at full res in 64bit mode since apple didn't include the drivers in the 64bit kernel while I can't get wifi (dell 1490 or bcm4312) and ethernet to work in 32bit.. the wifi card actually scans for networks and properly connects even getting the correct IP and appearing as 'connected' in system preferences, but then firefox and everything else just say 'cannot open page check your internet connection'. while booting in 64bit the wifi and ethernet just work as they used to work in leopard, and there's apparently no difference in system profiler or registry explorer between the card working in 64 and 32 bit.. btw I actually upgraded to 10.6, so I began installing it from leopard as you would on a mac without swapping usb keys, partitioning or anything like that, just plugged the cd and upgraded.. any suggestion?

  11. so I just upgraded to snow leopard with no serious problems.. I said upgraded so I still have all my stuff and programs installed, I did it like they do on macs by double clicking on the os x install icon in leopard but there's one annoying issue: the graphics only work at full res and with qe/ci in 32bit mode since apple didn't include the x3100 drivers in the 64bit kernel, while both ethernet and wifi (dell 1490 for me) only work in 64bit mode.. when I boot 32bit the airport actually connects to the net and gets its correct IP but then firefox and everything else say 'connection failed'... any idea? btw sound just works perfectly with my old legacy kexts if you want to upgrade just make a boot cd with the kexts u need (for me: voodoops2 64bit and fakesmcv2 sl), plug your snow leopard dvd into your drive while under leopard, start the installation and then, when it restarts, boot in your usual partition with the boot cd (do not boot the dvd, boot your hdd partition) and go ahead.
