  1. Not sure if this was meant for me but if so, thanks. Don't know, though, if it will work for SL?
  2. Still trying to do the update from 10.6.7 to 10.6.8 but missing some files mentioned by Fabio as the link is down. Does anyone have another link? 9) Use >> THIS << set of .plist rename it into Info.plist and replace: - Yukon2 /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon2.kext/Contents/Info.plist - AppleAHCIPort /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext/Contents/Info.plist - IOAHCIBlockStorage /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext/Contents/Info.plist - JMicronATA /System/Library/Extensions/JMicronATA.kext/Contents/Info.plist
  3. I've had similar problems with my installation. I have got it going a couple of times but then it doesn't work the next time. I've just seen this post here and there are a few people with the SE board who seem to have got it working. Don't know if this is any help? I'm going to check it out later. It looks like it is possible! http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...50402&st=20 The full spec of my machine is: Asus P6T SE motherboard Intel i7 DO Stepping 2.6ghz CPU 6GB GSkill Memory WD 500GB Sata Hard drive LG Sata DVD writer/reader Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 3450
  4. I've now tried using a single SATA drive with two Mac partitions and managed to get Leo to install. However, I have another problem as the machine will only boot up under Leo occasionally, the rest of the time freezing towards the end of startup. I don't know why this is and can only think that it is for of one of two reasons a) I have an intermittent hardware problem, that comes and goes. This seems unlikely as everything works ok under Windows. there is a piece of hardware I have installed that causes intermittent issues. Anyone have any suggestions? This is the hardware that I have: Asus P6T SE motherboard Intel i7 DO Stepping 2.6ghz CPU 6GB GSkill Memory WD 500GB Sata Hard drive LG Sata DVD writer/reader Additionally installed items: Wireless keyboard and mouse - via USB dongle Belkin F5D7050 wireless connector (via USB dongle) M-Audio Delta 66 PCI soundcard
  5. Ah, ok. It sounds a bit complicated but it's actually quite straightforward. I built the machine with a single PATA hard drive running windows and a SATA dvd drive. To install Leo I removed this hard drive (just a safety measure incase I accidentally erased it) and replaced it with another PATA hard drive, which I think formatted to mac extended journaled. The plan was to put the windows drive back when everything was working and have a dual boot machine with each system on a separate PATA drive. I found, however, that when installing I then had issues with the 1 SATA device/1PATA device (I kept get the 'searching for Root device' or similar, message) and read somewhere out that if I was installing to a PATA drive the DVD drive doing the installing should also be PATA. I then added an old PATA DVD drive and removed the SATA DVD drive. If you think that it will make things easier (it sounds to me like it will) I can add a SATA hard drive and reinstall Leo onto that. The one I have is already formatted for Mac but I would partition it into two, just so the system was on it's own partition. The only question then is whether I can also put my PATA drive with Windows back in, so that I can still dual boot, or whether this creates any issues? I'm pretty much in the dark as to what, if any, the implications might be, but I've become aware that it can have a bearing, at least at the install stage. Your input is much appreciated!
  6. Thanks for the suggestions. I've actually realised that I do have a SATA drive, currently in a hard drive enclosure I bought a while back. If I create a partition on this presumably I could install on it. Are you saying that I need PATA kexts if I am to have any IDE drives present, or will Mac OS just not recognise them without the kext? I was hoping to have a dual boot machine as I have Windows already installed on another drive (which is IDE) and it would be useful not to have to remove this. >boot using -v option and see where it hangs I've had a problem with this as I've found that I can't boot off the hard drive if the DVD is not present and if it is present, when I select any of the advanced booting options it defaults to applying them to booting with the DVD, not the hard drive - e.g. if I do -v it then start booting up the installer and giving me the lowdown on that. If I don't try and boot with the advanced options it sees the hard drive and starts booting from that, but then hangs. I'm guessing that there is some sort of conflict again to do with the IDE issue so maybe installing a SATA drive and installing to that will resolve this?
  7. Thanks for confirming. I've installed 1.3 and I managed to successfully boot into Leo and make the patches. It all seemed to be ok but since restarting for the first time I get the Apple symbol and it just hangs and I don't get the startup wheel. The possible explanations I can think of are: I messed up the patching - I was really careful with this so I don't think it was this I installed the AppleHDA kext as I didn't seem to have any installed sound - I didn't get an option to remove Azalia so this seems quite likely to be the culprit? Don't know if there's a way to change this without re-doing from scratch I did the whole installation using an IDE DVD drive and IDE HD as I don't have a SATA HD (I'd heard that you could install if you have 2 IDE drives and this seemed to work), so I didn't configure SATA as AHCI. I don't know if this has a bearing? I've noticed that when booting up I seem to need to have the install DVD in the drive for the HD to be visible, otherwise it just doesn't see the HD. I guess then that this might also be an issue? Does anyone have any suggestions? Maybe I should just get a SATA drive and do the whole thing again.....!
  8. This looks like a good guide, thanks! I tried to install v1.4 on my build featuring an Asus P6T SE motherboard and it seemed to install ok (i had to install via an IDE drive, rather than a SATA one to get it to install) but then couldn't get it to boot up e.g. it just got into a boot loop. Do you reckon that your version should work better with my setup? I'm not sure what the difference is between the SE and the Deluxe version of the board?
