  1. P5K-SE - Retail Leopard Instalation

    Jimmy, Im not leaving this forum. If you have questions, send them The only restriction is that I don't have a hackintosh machine anymore. I can't therefore test hackintosh related settings myself. But I can naturally always help other forum members with their problems, etc. Greetings, Wally
  2. P5K-SE - Retail Leopard Instalation

    Hi, I am not using a P5k retail Hackint0sh anymore for my primary (desktop) activities, since the end of 2009. I sold the system as windows machine. In addition to my macbook (2008), I have (since the end of 2009), an imac. Jimmy and everyone thanks for everything! I am very grateful for all the support and tips!!! Greetings, Wally
  3. P5K-SE - Retail Leopard Instalation

    Hi, Customize the Chameleon boot loader and make it ready for the new drive. Meanwhile, it is easier/faster to reinstall Chameleon on your new harddisk. Greetings, Wally

    Hi, I also use Carbon Copy Cloner (it is my primary backup solution). You just have to adjust the Chameleon bootloader after the recovery process. Greetings, Wally
  5. P5K-SE - Retail Leopard Instalation

    Hi, As prompted by Jimmy hereby my findings for all those who encounter many (weird) problems with the "SATA controller" in combination with MAC OS X Snow 10.6, as I had before. My solution: I bought a simple "sata to usb converter" +- 4$. This converter is connected to my normal hard disk. The bios emulates the converted (usb) hard disk as a real hard drive and will start it as its primary master (bios boot order). Everything works fine (including the sleep function), it start and runs faster / more stable than my Leopard 10.5.8. installation. I have used the following additional kext drivers: FakeSMC.kext, OpenHaltRestart.kext, Sleepenabler.kext (10.6.2. edition), VoodooHDA.kext and AppleYukon2.kext. My GeForce graphics card (string) was added to the com.apple.boot.plist file. Greetings, Wally

  7. P5K-SE - Retail Leopard Instalation

    Hi, You're right. I've also tested it several items. Snow runs not good here, unstable, weird errors etc. I stay @ 10.5.8, at least for now. Greetings, Wally
  8. Hi forum members, After some try and tests on the basis of this and some other tutorials on this forum. Now I can boot Snow 10.6 properly. Unfortunately I get in a few minutes after I've logged in, a kernel error. That even if I do nothing right after the login process. There are still many sharp edges. Thus I feel that Snow is not 100% ready to operate on a P5K-hakintosh right now. What do you think? Greetings, Wally
  9. Hi, I have exactly the same problem. Apple usb ................... still waiting for root device I have replaced "EVOenabler.kext" and as bonjoey, integrated my hdd id in "com.apple.boot.plist" and "info.plist" of "PlatformUUID.kext". Has anyone an idea perhaps? Greetings, Wally PS. Who is actually already using Snow as his/her primary system? I myself remain in 10.5.8. for a while. I only use Mac OS X. neither Windows or anything like that.
  10. Hi JD Apolo, Just tested your method and unfortunately it does not work. 1. The system hangs and remains report: "Evoenabler: Probing", overall the computer won't boot. 2. If I thereafter remove this kext driver (Evoenabler.kext) then the computer continues hangs on: "Waiting on com.apple.AppleFSC Compression Type Zlib load succeeded" 3. I have tried an external driver. Unfortunately also the patched "EVOenabler.kext" through "http://www.kexts.com/view/6-evoenabler.kext.html" does not work. 4. Obviously I have also rebuild the "Extensions.mkext" driver, thus without "Evoenabler.kext". Regrettably this makes no appreciable difference. All this applies to your guide: step 7. Got a suggestion? Thanks, Greetings, Wally PS. My system works perfectly on 10.5.8. including: sleep, shutdown and restart > (also after sleep). But that aside.
  11. Hi, his reminds me of 10.5.8. without SleepEnabler.kext. That is exactly the same. Gr Wally
  12. Hi, Thanks for your work. I appreciate your effort. You indicate that it is too early for the sleep function, short, you havent test it? Otherwise try "SleepEnabler.kext" ie. "http://www.kexts.com/view/21-sleepenabler_%2832--64-bit%29.html" Greetings, Wally PS. as requested here is a double: "http://sharebee.com/68669953"

    Jimmy, I think it is wise that you as an P5K-SE hakintosh 'expert' start a topic about P5K-SE 10.6 Snow. More and more mail is about 10.6 and not for which it is intended: 10.5.8. Think of it as a transaction project from 10.5.8 to a reliable installation guide for 10.6 Snow within a certain period. Greetings, Wally

    Hi, In 32 and 64 mode? Please try shutdown/restart after sleep in 32 and 64. Greetings, Wally

    Hi, What do you mean with "Now Snow is running OK" Works for example shutdown/restart after sleep? I'm curious, Greetings, Wally
