I am having a bit of trouble with snow leopard, But first i must thank everybody on this forum for helping me successfully run 10.5.x for about a year now, the information in this forum is so great that so far i have not needed to ask for help yet.
As i said i have been running 10.5.8 for some time and used the method described on http://www.insanelymac.com/2009/08/how-to-...-pc-hackintosh/ to successfully install snow leopard on an old 40GB IDE hard drive. It boots and runs well and after downgrading to chameleon 1 from 2 i don't get any kp's.
The problem is that i would like to be running SL on something larger and faster than my old 40GB drive, I have been using a 1.5TB seagate drive to run leopard so i have backed it up and tried to move my current working install of SL to it.
First i tried to use carbon copy cloner to move all the file over then tried to install a bootloader on it but when booting it gives me 'boot0: error'.
Secondly i tried to install SL on the drive from within my existing SL install but unfortunately i get the same error.
Lastly i tried booting from my trusty ubuntu live CD and used dd to try and clone the drive using the dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb command but then i do not even get the boot0: error it just sits there asking me for a system disk.
I do not know if it is useful but here are my system specs:
Foxconn 945P7AD Motherboard
2.0Ghz pentium dual core CPU
4GB DDR2 Ram
Nvidia 8600GT 1024MB Graphics Card
1.5TB Seagate Barracuda Hard Drive
2x IDE DVD - RW Drives
I Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.
