  1. Hello Guys Well where do I start, I have a Presario C500 and for the last year and half I have been running 10.5 on this machine shortly after 10.6 was realised I tried to install that with no luck I have tried a number of different iso's to try get it to boot but a few month ago i just gave up then the other day i stumbled onto a post that some people have not only managed to get it to boot using iAtkos s3 v2 but they found the kexts files to get the near impossible wireless card to work (Broadcom 4311) so my basic point of the post is if anyone could please advice me in the best way to install snow leopard without getting a panic would be great also there was comments of people saying you need a trackpad kext for this version if anyone knows what I need i would be more than grateful thanks guyss i have replied to the posts but had no reply so this is my last hope i guess.

    If i am right you can download a pre-installed vmware image for vmware which would save the trouble of installing it although i will warn you from my experience OSX runs so slow in vmware its hardly useable Okay so i tried booting using -f -v using iAtkos v7 and it came back with this USBF: 2.395. AppleUSBOHCI [0x27556800] : : CheckSleepCompatibilty - OHCI controller will be unloaded across sleep AppleGenericPCATADriver : CMD 0X1FO, CTR 0x3f4, irq 14 Still waiting for root device Thats is realy starting to confuze me so if anyone could help me with my problem that would be great guys Okay after doing some research im pritty sure it is someone to do with my usb support so i went into bios and disabled it but it still comes back with the same problem idea's anyone?
