  1. Is this only for partioned disks or also for seperate harddrives? I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 on a seperate disk, also installed the Grub loader to this disk, but it won't show up in Chameleon RC4. Now i boot via Bios option to this disk.

    Security Update 2010-001 - New?

    Everything fine here
  3. Interesting reading here! Just wanted to try this enabeling. Has someone similar or strange troubles with Paragon NTFS? - Sometimes when i delete files or folders, i can't delete them permanent from the trash, i have to do CHKDSK in Windows to "free" these files. - Sometimes when i copy/move a file from a HFS+ / NTFS drive to a NTFS drive the file just disappears and is gone!

    Essential Windows Programs

    My one and lovely tool: ac'tivAid (from c't magazine, germany) It's a utility with a lot of scripts, for keyboard shortcuts etc. Also some Mac-like stuff (open DVD drive, new folder with strg+n, ...)

    Windows 7 Reviews

    Installed today, without problems. Had to install graphics drivers for Radeon 4890, everything else works. Startup speed for me is the same like in Vista 64, i dont't recognize a speed difference between both. What i like is the "mouse-over" functions on the taskbar (for example i robocopy a disk, surf in firefox fullscreen, just put mouse over icon on taskbar and the window appears). Also on the right edge of the taskbar the show-desktop function. All in all a good idea, an other approach than simple copy the Exposé stuff. The wallpapers are nice, weird and funky.

    10.5.6 and Windows 7

    If you have an extra drive for Windows, just make this the 2nd boot device, 1st is DVD drive, and install Windows onto this drive. After installation, just make the boot device order in bios like it was before. If you have Chameleon bootloader, it recognizes the Windows 7 disk and boots it. I've installed Windows 7 like this 2 hours ago

    ACPI (DSDT) Patcher for BIOS and AML

    Hey, maybe someone has luck to create a DSDT.aml for a EP35-DS4 Board? I'm stuck in errors, and it works without DSDT.aml. But for Bios reset Fix and graphics (9800GTX+) it would be fine. This is what i get with the F3 Bios: (with F6 it's same) dsdt.dsl 221: Method (\_WAK, 1, NotSerialized) Warning 1080 - ^ Reserved method must return a value (_WAK) dsdt.dsl 284: Store (Local0, Local0) Error 4050 - ^ Method local variable is not initialized (Local0) dsdt.dsl 289: Store (Local0, Local0) Error 4050 - ^ Method local variable is not initialized (Local0) dsdt.dsl 473: DTGP(Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf(Local0)) Error 4063 - ^ Object does not exist (DTGP)

    RealTek 8139

    Hi, I had exactly the same issue with my RTL8139 PCI adapter. Slow internet and this "receiver interrupt error". I used clamshell's hint and the "solution" is cheap: I replaced the AppleRTL8139.kext in the IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins with the one found here. It should not be done this way because of bad vanilla flavour, but it works.

    SL on P5B

    Good morning! Mainly i followed lord_webi's simple guide. First installed it from existing 10.5 installation onto empty harddisk, then installed on this drive Chameleon RC1 (important) without kext's from it and copied the PCEFi boot file from 10.1 version over existing one. Afterwards i copied the kext's i need to the Extra/Extensions dir, edited the PlatformUUID.kext with the UUID of snowleo-hdd, and made a *.mkext file. Then i copied my dsdt.aml and smbios.plist to extra/ and also edited smbios.plist with UUID of snowleo-hdd, and edited the com.apple.Boot.plist (screen resolution, etc.). For graphics i had to use the enabler and pkg for exotic cards from netkas. After first boot with the snowleo hdd (with boot flag -x32) i had to use Kext Utility from cVad, very important. I boot all the time with -x32 because of the graphiccard. In the Extra/Extensions dir i have: IO80211Family.kext, IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, OpenHaltRestart.kext, PlatformUUID.kext, fakesmc.kext I have uploaded things i needed here, but it's same like in many other guides. I think all in all that's it, it's not perfect, but good enough for me It's almost the same way like installation of 10.5 system, just with other kext's. But there are small things to fix, like the unknown AHCI controller, USB issues. I didn't checked sound, i never used the onboard sound. I think onboard LAN doesn't work or is {censored} (Attansic L1) but i use an old Realtek 8139 PCI card instead.

    SL on P5B

    1. Have a P5B-E, success 2. I used my old dsdt.aml 3. Usual kext's as seen in many threads, nothing special 4. I use my RTL8139 network adapter instead of the AttansicL1; all in all like in 10.5 5. Chameleon 2 RC1; PCEFi 10.1 6. installed from existing Leopard
  12. 4890 running fine here Not sure about 3850, but there's also a 4850 silent from gigabyte for example, if some money is in the piggybank.

    Retail Install 10.6

    @lord_webi: simple & good guide, made it the same way. the important thing to do for me was the kext utility usage after install. without everytime snowleo boots like with -f one question off topic: is it snow leopard related that i don't have any drive icons on my desktop? i don't need them, i like it. i have a G4 with 10.4 there i have the same thing but don't know what i did

    How to: ATI 4850 working on SL

    I have a 4890, which works fine only with enabler installed and QE/CI pkg afterwards. A 4870 works also fine for me, aren't the 4850 and 4870 both RV770 chips with not that big difference?
  15. Yes, it wasn't there before
