  1. Snow Leopard on VAIO P(VGN-P90HS) working!

    That maybe wonderful one. But I don't know what is the merit of Chameleon2 ? This second step loader can boot from grub or other ordinary boot loaders? I imagine to install OSX into internal disk. Now I wonder what is the better way to work both WinXP and OSX on VAIO P. I think Chameleon is special boot loader for booting only OSX. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Now I use Ethernet via USB-Ethernet adapter with Pegasus OSX driver. This seems fine for me. Next, I would try to use MLAN inside VAIO type P. It seems Yukon, so add some informations to the *.plist inside driver kext? MLAN@0 <class IOPCIDevice, registered, matched, active, busy 0, retain 6> | "device-id" = <80430000> | "vendor-id" = <ab110000> These two informations are the key of this? Thanks in advance.

    Only you need to use Gparted and copy some files, I recommend you to use Puppy Linux Live with some USB memory. This is small (100MB), easy to install to the USB memory with Unetbootin (download, format, install, and make it bootable in one action with Windows/Linux application), and maybe you can use window system over some VESA framebuffer.

    Nipro: Thank you. I installed all of the kext into /Syste/Library/Extensions/ and mixed both Leopard generic kexts and added ones. Chameleon loads /Extra/Extensions first, and continue to the generic kexts. Now I try to install to USB again, so I make that folder, and try to use this rule. Thanks.

    I have some questions about /Extra/Extension. What is the meaning of /Extra/Extention ? Which process would be read the /Extra/Extension folder? What is the merit of separating kext folders? I can make it with mkdir command by myself?

    If you use USB disk, You can use mac book to insall. I install Leopard with my Intel Mac, and update 10.5.7 soon. I use ryuu123's alpha 1 because ryuu123 wrote that is for 10.5.7. I install 5 kext file for the first time. This is minimum to boot and use keyboard and mouse. 3 kexts copy into Extention folder. -PCIFix -ApplePS2Controller (search and download from anywhare) -AppleACPIPS2Nub (search and download from anywhare) 2 kexts copy into inside kexts. Ryuu123's IOATAFamily.kext have a AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext inside file. Open it with right click and go into kext file, and pick up it. The AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext copy to the plugin folder of inside IOATAFamily.kext, that is already installed in the system. Ryuu123's IOUSBFamily.kext have a AppleUSBEHCI.kext inside file. Open it with right click and go into kext file, and pick up it. The AppleUSBEHCI.kext copy to the plugin folder inside IOUSBFamily.kext, that is already installed in the system. I use Chameleon 1 because maccosmo use this. Edit com.apple.Boot.plist for boot up option. -v -f cpus=1 "Graphics Mode"="1600x768x32" Try them. Thanks.

    Hi all, I succeed to install basic system into USBmemory to use the way maccosmo make. Unfortunately now I cannot control sound and its volumes. My first challange, I got a sound from speaker. Talking about installing kext files, I list below only with my trial. For the better environments and stabilities, I would appliciate if some experts around this board give me hints or suggestions. - First, minimal install after update system. PCIFix, ApplePS2Controller, AppleACPIPS2Nub ATAPIIX, USBEHCI (to install into pre-installed kexts by hand) - After fully wake up OS X dsmos, SMBIOSEnabler, AppleSMBIOS, OpenHaltRestart - Don't install when you install OSX into USB memory (Stop USBEHCI detection and boot up from USB storage) IntelCPUPMDisabler, Voodoo*, UUID At last, Arigato ryuu123-san for developing base hacks. Thank you for maccosmo's advice. Finally I took a picture of my machine, now. Best regards.

    IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext stops USB detection. VoodooBattery, VoodooHDA, VoodooPower also stops USB detection, so UIM error. So I don't need to install these kext. Bluetooth seems working fine. Nintendo Wii remote controller can connect via BT.

    Once I boot up multi-user mode, but I cannot change all settings of OSX system. And it works very slow. (This may be come from the owner of all file, all files of the system is root, I suppose.) Then I try to install all the steps in one time. -equipments Intel mac 16GB USB memory VAIO P Leopard DVD (10.5.0) -steps Format USB memory by GUID partitioning and HFS+ Install Leopard into USB memory by Intel Mac Intel Mac reboot from USB memory update system to 10.5.7 Intel Mac reboot from USB memory Install kexts (below) Install chameleon 1.0.11 Overwrite "Boot" file by ryuu123's Boot Run DiskUtility to make all permissions normal. Add com.apple.Boot.plist some words. (cpus=1, -v -f, Timeout) Shutdown Intel Mac Put USB memory into VAIO P Boot from USB memory -Installed kexts --via kext helper (all of them at one time) AppleACPIPS2nub ApplePS2Controller(for ANSI key order) AppleSMBIOS dsmos INtelCPUPMDisabler SMBIOSEnabler UUID VoodooBattery VoodooHDA VoodooPower PCIFix --overwrite inside plugin kexts by hand IOATAFamily (AppleIntelPIIXATA) IOUSBFamily (AppleUSBEHCI) -result : failed Stop bootup before initializing USB. boot up message: AppleUSBEHCI : unable to initiallize UIM This may be happen because of the order of the installing kexts. So I would appliciate if someone could tell me better order to install kexts. Thanks in advance.

    I succeed to boot up with single user mode from USB memory. From my error message, I noticed that the operation at #8 is very important. So I copy IOATA and IOUSB from other OSX machine, and open kext package and overwrite 2 plugin kexts in direct. Now I chown-ing all over system, then I would try to reboot by multi-user mode. Thanks ryuu123 and maccosmo.

    Hi all, I also try the way that maccosmo USB install. -Install OSX10.5 into 16GB USB memory with MacMini Intel -Reboot form USB memory -Update 10.5.7 -Change boot file -Install 3 kext files in ryuu123's archive with kext helper. -Install Chameleon 1 -Edit /Library/SystemConfigurations/Preferences/com.apple.Boot.plist -Correct permissions by Disk Utility. After these steps, I insert USB memory and boot form VAIO. Boot steps stops after some errors. Something wrong or lacks kexts? Thanks in advance.
