  1. How to use older Kernel? (AMD)

    I wouldn't risk trying to use that kernel, when it was released it was 'Test' and is buggy, and will most likely lead to continual kernel panics & freezes, you may not even be able to boot your parition. im on 10.6.6 atm using the 10.6.5 kernel, works perfectly
  2. Win 7 Blue Screen?

    On your windows partition are you using a piece of software called Mac Drive? That will continually crash your system with a hackintosh, always has always will
  3. Hello Everyone, I've recently reinstalled and I'm all updated to 10.6.6. I've started using the time machine to make it less painful when an update goes wrong so I can restore. I'd like to put chameleon on a seperate partition so when it restores from time machine the bootloader doesnt break. How do i remove the bootloader at the moment from the snow leopard drive? (would i need to) And do i keep everything from the chameleon install on that partition (com.apple.boot.plist, extra, extensions etc) Also, would I need to set the chameleon partition to the default partition? how would one go about doing that? Thanks James
  4. 10.6.6 released

    See my signature for my system details, Everything went perfectly on AMD. Just make sure that you backup your kernel and when you boot from the bootloader type mach_kernel.backup or whatever you named it. and then restore it when your on the desktop. I had to do a fresh system install as my system in 10.6.5 had javascript problems which didnt allow me to install anything, literally, facetime, office, everything! so did a fresh install, 10.6.6 is a nifty little update.
  5. 10.6.6 released

    Going to install the update now (delta 144mb one) on AMD System, will come back with the results.
  6. Cannot Install Office 2011 under Snow Leopard 10.6.4

    This is so infuriating trying to find a solution, all people can do is offer an alternative!
  7. office 2011 wont install

    Do you think they'd care if we told them were running Mac OS X on non apple hardware?
  8. office 2011 wont install

    This topic is about office, I'm sure others are aware of iWork but I'd like a solution to Office only and not an alternative
  9. office 2011 wont install

    I also get this problem, even when booting into 32 bit & 64 bit, both give the same error message! :S Yours is the one where it's like this can only be installed on 10.5.8 or later? I've also got 10.6.5 and I'm encountering the same problem. I know someone is probably going to comment on this like "Use open office office sucks" we aren't asking for that comment, some people need this to work in order to do work etc. If anyone has a valid solution then please post it here.
  10. AMD and Retail Snow Leopard 10.6.5 --> 10.6.8 Final[GUIDE]

  11. Snow Leopard Graphics Update 1.0

  12. Can you get 64bit on amd?

    Thanks I'll have to give it a go when I get back from my holiday Thanks James
  13. Magic Trackpad.

    I would like to buy one, but i'm not sure if it will be as effective in my setup as the magic mouse has been.
  14. Best way to update to 10.6.4 on amd?

    You can update through software update if you change the kernel to the "legacy_kernel" in com.apple.boot.plist, Regardless there's no need to download the kernel if you've already got it and need to update, aslong as it's in the .plist it won't boot mach_kernel, will automatically boot legacy.
