  1. What? You can't access your BIOS? That is a big problem. Yes, USB mouse/keyboard work really bad, I had the same problem. What i did was connecting my mouse after loading of installation to a usb front one. It is just trying out, and some keyboards and mice may not work properly. Get yourself a working PS/2 keyboard and mouse or USB and don't worry when you installed it. It should work after installation. I am going to make a new version of this guide, INCLUDING instructions on how to update it too.
  2. Update finished: kernel panic

    tried what you said earlier. didn't work either. I tried this: -Reinstall SL 10.6 -Download Combo Update 10.6.4 -Install 10.6.4 (no reboot yet) -Install myHack 1.01 (not the one from EmpireEFI) -Put the 10.6.4 sleepenabler from the link -Rebooted Nothing happens. Whyz? I'll try now to get teh newest EmpireEFI, maybe that works.
  3. Update finished: kernel panic

    when i hit pmVersion=0 and boot, it just gave the same kernel panic.
  4. I tried to update to 10.6.4 from 10.6 with the Combo update from the Apple website. After a succesful update, i tried rebooting. I could reboot with my custom kernel, but my USB keyboard and mouse did not work anymore. I thought: maybe i have to put my loader disc again in and try putting the custom kernel again. So, i tried booting.... If i wanted to load it, it gave me a kernel panic. Included are several pictures and a video of the kernel panic. If anymore info needs to be given, just say so and i'll give it. What do i have to do? Would a 10.6.4 combo update better work? Do i need to backup something? Do i need now to reinstall Snow? Specs: -Using: EmpireEFI v1.08 i5 version -Retail Snow Leopard 10.6 -Intel core i5-750 -Gigabyte P55M-UD2 -ASUS EAH5770 That's probably the most important infos. Video: http://www.gdscei.com/100_1452.MOV Thanks a lot!
  5. resizing is risky, so you shouldn't probably do it. can't you make a new partition and throw your files on that? I just posted there. It's waiting for moderation now.
  6. Here a guide for installing & multi booting Windows 7 and Snow Leopard on your PC. Known motherboards that this works with: Gigabyte P55M-UD2 It should work on most P55 motherboards with i5 processor. If it works for you, please post your motherboard name. --GUIDE-- What you'll need: -An USB stick (only for putting some simple files on it) -1 writable CD -1 writable DVD Dual Layer (8.5GB) (if you do not have retail snow leopard disc) -Windows 7 installation disc Step 1: - Download: Empire EFI v1.08 (click here) - Get a retail Snow Leopard disc, or download one and burn on dual layer DVD (TO SUPPORT APPLE, BUY AN UPDATE DISC!) - Burn the P55/i5 version of Empire EFI to a CD Step 2: - Set in your BIOS the following things: -(Advanced Features) First boot device: CDROM -(Advanced Features) HDD Priorty: on the hdd you are going to install mac & windows on -(Integrated Peripherals) SATA RAID/AHCI: AHCI -(Power Management) ACPI Suspend Type: S3(STR) -(Power Management) HPET Mode: 64-bit Mode - Save and exit (F10) out of BIOS. Step 3: - Boot your Empire EFI disc. - Eject when loaded, and insert snow leopard disc. - Wait until spinning of the disc (on your dvd drive) is finished, then press F5. - Select the Mac OS X Snow Leopard Installation DVD and press Enter. Step 4: - When in the Mac OS X installation, select your language and press the arrow - Go now on the top to Utilities->Disk Utility - Select the HDD, and select "partition" from the menu. Make 3 partitions, one Windows (MS-DOS FAT), one Mac (Mac OS X Journaled (Extended)) and one DATA partition (MS-DOS FAT) (you do not need the 3rd one, only when you want to share files trough windows->mac and vice versa). Select at Options: GUID Partition Table. Step 5: - Install Mac OS X on your Mac partition. You can hit customize, so you can save some HDD space, like deselecting printer drivers and translations. - After installation, it will reboot. - Eject the Mac OS X disc (if this is not possible, it doesn't do anything, turn off your PC and turn off the power supply, and then turn everything on again) - Insert the Empire EFI disc and boot from that again - Now select the Mac partition, not a disc. - Wait until it's booted in Mac. -- THIS IS THE POINT WHERE YOU CAN UPDATE TO THE LATEST VERSION OF SNOW LEOPARD, THOUGH I DO NOT SAY IT WORKS CORRECTLY FOR EVERYONE. -- Step 6: - Your Empire EFI disc should be still in it and mac should recognise it as "Legacy Boot CD". - Go into it from Finder and Go to Extra->Post-Installation. - Go into myHack Installer. - Select @ customize: Chocolate Kernel, you might also need PS2Controller. Also select Sleepenabler.kext. You might need some else too. - Install it on the Mac partition and reboot. - Eject the Empire EFI disc, and then reboot. Step 7: - You should come in a bootloader now. Wait until the progress bar is finished, and you should see the myHack logo and then the spinning wheel. Wait until you're in Mac, now w/o your Empire EFI disc! - DO NOT DO ANYTHING YET. Step 8: - Boot your Windows 7 installation disc. Format the Windows partition to NTFS, and install Windows on it. - You shouldn't be able to go into mac anymore; don't worry! - Get EasyBCD (http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1) and install - At "Add/Remove entries", make a new entry: "Mac", "Generic x86", and give it a name. Add it, and reboot. - You should see two options now when you boot your PC: Windows and Mac! - Windows should boot normally, and Mac too. - If you need to, you might want to install some kexts on Mac. (You can get them from places like here or here), and you'll need Kext Helper to install them. Enjoy your Windows-Mac dual boot now! --A guide by gdscei--

  8. Never mind, I got my internet kext from www.kexts.com and used KextHelper. It works (on mac now ) I'll post a guide on the forum.
  9. Cannot modify partition map?

    I just formatted my hard drive with GUID partition map, i didn't have so important files on it. I got a dual boot now.
  10. I actually did I have now been in Mac OSX Snow Leopard, though my internet and audio doesn't work. (yes, i've tried to edit the audio output thing - put theres no option ). I must say that it only accepts 1024x768 resoltion, but that doesn't really matter to me. Where can I get the best kexts, so i can get my internet to work?
  11. I am trying to use EmpireEFI now, which actually boots the DVD Though it doesn't want to partition my partition.... I'll look for a dualbooting guide.
  12. Hello, I am trying to install Snow Leopard, using these instructions: -Download/burn EmpireEFI v1.08_i5 -Download/Burn retail mac osx snow leopard -insert empireefi disc, eject when loaded and insert sl disc, press f5 and enter. Then, when i want (of course) to partition my partition to Mac OSX Journaled (Extended), It doesn't do it's job, it says something in the line of "cannot modify partition map". What do I have to do? Is there an alternative method or should i change something in the BIOS...? Specs: Intel Core i5-750 Gigabyte P55M-UD2 Samsung SpinPoint F3 Desktop Class HD502HJ (500GB, devided into 3 primary partitions: windows, system recovery, and mac, and one logical(extended) partition, for games.) ASUS EAH5770 1GB GDDR5 I have AHCI mode enabled, and use SATA3 HDD & SATA3 DVD Drive.
  13. I tried installing it like this: -Download and burn retail Snow Leopard 10.6 DMG using PowerISO to a DVD+R DL 8.5 GB -Download and burn KakewalkLegacy ISO to a CD-RW 700MB -Succesfully putting BIOS settings OK -Booting Kakewalk disc -Eject disc -Put in Mac disc -Wait until green light is off (spinning finished) -F5 -Hit Enter on the Mac disc (its name is: Mac OS X Snow Leopard) And then i got a black screen, totally black, and my DVD drive is spinning at a too high speed, so i hear the noise of it, which i usually don't, really. It just keeps spinning and spinning and nothing happens for like 5mins. My specs: Intel Core i5-750 ASUS EAH5770 Gigabyte P55M-UD2 Kingston 2x2GB Dual Channel Memory Samsung Super-WriteMaster SH-S223C Samsung SpinPoint F3 Desktop Class HD502HJ HDD with 3partitions: Win7, a logical partition for games, and the mac partition what was formatted as NTFS, which i was thinking of formatting again with the DVD in Disk Utility to Mac OS X Journaled. Can anyone help me? What's the problem? What's the solution?
  14. i am wondering... i have a gigabyte p55m-ud2 motherboard, and you say it has support for it... though in the guide it says that p55 chipsets are not working?! (@ ISO burn info) So what's it... does or doesnt? No one?
  15. Recommendation?

    got a little question though... i already asked on the Kakewalk topic, but no one respond it says that the Gigabyte P55M-UD2 motherboard is supported, but @ the iso burning part of the guide, it says it doesnt support P55 chipsets?! So whats it???
