  1. Thank you for organizing this nice little install packet. I have two ITX computers running now, 1 Mac Cube ITX, and 1 Quad core 9800gt gaming pc. Btw, does anyone else have trouble with the DVI output on this board? On my Cube ITX build, which doesn't have a discrete graphics card, i can only get vga working and not DVI :-(.

    This is my setup...currently not working MB- Zotac 9300 ITX Harddrive - Hitachi SATA CPU - Q9400 Memory - 4gb GSkill 800MHz CD Drive - Samsung DVD-RW SATA OS - RETAIL OSX 10.5.4 Protocol 1) First I placed my harddrive on a external SATA dock and connect it to my working hackintosh (Acer Aspire One) via USB 2) I then partition my harddrive in Disk Utility with GUID and named it "Quad" 3) Then I right click on my newly partition harddrive "Quad" and click on info and uncheck the box called "Ignore ownership on this volume" 4) Then I open up Terminal and install Leo .... cd /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/System/Installation/Packages open OSInstall.mpkg 5) After Installation (without restarting anything), I continue to install the 10.5.6 combined update on "Quad" 6) Again, without restarting anything, I create a folder in the main volume called "Extra" and in that folder, I create another folder called "Extensions" 7) I then unzipped the zip file from HMiller and migrated the files to the "Extensions" folder 8) Again, without restarting anything, I installed Chameleon RC1 on "Quad" 9) I then double checked that Chameleon RC1 Install did use my Extra/Extensions folder 10) Then I shut down my working hackintosh computer and unplugged the Harddrive Sata USB dock and moved my harddrive to my Zotac computer build. 11) I started up the Zotac computer with BIOS in default except for the under Integrated Peripherals/MCP Storage Config/ SATA Operation Mode -- switich [iDE "default" ---> AHCI] 12) I then saved and exit BIOS 13) Computer restarts now and Chameleon loads 14) It highlights "Quad" so I now press enter... actually, load in verbose mode "-v" 15) About 10 sec it just hangs 16) I shut the computer down and move the harddrive to m SATA USB dock again and connect it to my working hackintosh 17) I reinstall chameleon RC1 with my kexts moved in the Extra/Extensions folder 18) I Fix Permission in Disk Utility 19) It says permissions fixed, but in the log file nothing really happened 20) I remove the harddrive and install it on the Zotac machine again 21) The Zotac machine boots up with Chameleon and I press "-v" and enter again 22) About 10 sec of booting, it hangs.... 23) ...but a big shoutout to everyone who has contributed!! Cheers! Anyone help me troubleshoot?

    Besides changing IDE to AHCI in the BIOS, do you keep everything else in the BIOS in default setting?

    The AHCI did the trick, but now I'm stuck on "localhost mDNAresponder [42] blah blah blah" error...it just hangs there! Any help would be appreciated.

    My installation freezes when I try to boot up the system. It constantly give me a "waiting for root device" message. Do I need to change anything in the bios?

    Thanks for the tips on repairing permissions. What I found was that if you boot up the working computer with the original OSX retail disk, you are able to repair permissions. As for the kexts, how do you install them? I only repaired permissions but have not injected the kexts yet. Without the kexts, I am unable to load into the OS. Thanks!

    Hey, great write up everyone! I am following HMiller's protocol but I am now stuck. After I received my kernel panic, I removed the HD from my Zotac machine to my working computer, but I am unable to boot up, I believe it's due to the disk permissions. So my question is "how can you repair disk permission and install kexts to a HD that can't boot up?" I also tried to repair disk permission on this harddrive connected to my working computer as an external harddrive, but the disk permission feature in Disk Utilities is greyed out. Any thoughts? Thanks!
