  1. I cannot figure out what the problem is, so I am resorting to this forum. I was running 10.6.1 fine and then without looking too much into the necessary details, I finally updated to 10.6.2 this morning. Update went fine, but on restart, I got a KP. I realized I need to update the SleepEnabler; I did that and logged into the system once. After than I've been getting an error I'm posting below: When I run with -s boot option, everything loads fine and I get to the prompt. But when I fsck -fy as it says to do to get into write mode, I get the following error: :/ root# fsck -fy ** /dev/rdisk1s2 panic(cpu 4 caller 0x2a7ac2): Kernel trap at 0x0027a9af, type 14=page fault, registers: CR0: 0x80010033, CR2: 0x003b250c, CR3: 0x1a2fd000, CR4: 0x00000660 EAX: 0x043b0f08, EBX: 0x0000007a, ECX: 0x003b2508, EDX: 0x0084a210 CR2: 0x003b250c, EBP: 0x82463db8, ESI: 0x00000185, EDI: 0x043b3adc EFL: 0x00010212, EIP: 0x0027a9af, CS: 0x00000008, DS: 0x00000010 Error code: 0x00000003 (sometimes this is also 0x00000002) Debugger called: <panic> Backtrace (CPU 4), Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack) 0x82463ba8 : 0x21b2bd (0x5cf868 0x82463bdc 0x223719 0x0) 0x82463bf8 : 0x2a7ac2 (0x591c30 0x27a9af 0xe 0x591dfa 0x0) 0x82463cd8 : 0x29d968 (0x82463cf0 0x82463eb0 0x82463db8 0x27a9af) 0x82463ce8 : 0x27a9af (0xe 0xa550048 0x10 0x82460010) 0x82463db8 : 0x27b9c4 (0x82788000 0x1 0x2013df8 0x0) 0x82463df8 : 0x257f9a (0x29e43d8 0x82790000 0x1 0x3) 0x82463f38 : 0x2a739c (0x29e43d8 0x82790000 0xa 0x3) 0x82463fc8 : 0x29d7ca ()0xa561b04 0x0 0x10 0x0) BSD process name corresponding to current thread: fsck_hfs Mac OS version Kernel version: Darwin Kernel Version 10.2.0: Tue Nov 3 10:3710 PST 2009; root:xnu-1486.2.11~1/RELEASE_I386 System model name: System uptime in nanoseconds I read that this might be caused by some USB devices, I did have a hub which I removed and only connected a keyboard and mouse. My system is: GA-UD5 motherboard 6gb corsair DDR3 memory 2x500gb western digital hd ( 1 for mac 1 for win 7) Intel coreI7 (what ever the cheapest one is). I should've just stuck with 10.6.1, which was working flawlessly!! Has anyone gone through a similar problem? Any insights and help is obviously appreciated!! Thanks!
  2. Just for the hell of it, I removed Dont Steal Mac OS kext from /S/L/E to my desktop, then restarted the system. Well, now it won't boot up, shows me a bunch of Realtek1000 messages and it just hangs... I tried: -s, -F boot options but same prob. Maybe the wrong thread for this question, but figured people here might know how to fix it. How can I install it back on? Thanks!
  3. Has anyone been able to setup a bootcamp install of another OS?
  4. I don't want to jinx anything, but just now I was messing around with kexts and my /Extra directory to fix this KP after sleep issue... so far so good... don't see a KP yet! I don't know how you have your system set up, but what I did was move all the kexts to /System/Library/Extensions except the following 4 went in /Extra/Extensions/ my /Extra/Extensions/ has: AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext PlatformUUID.kext IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext dsmos.kext After I did that, I ran Kext Utility and when that was done restarted the system. Following that, Sleep seems to have worked for me...
  5. I am trying to install SL on my PC. This is my first attempt at installing any Apple OS on my PC. I've read some of the threads that pertain to my hardware configuration, but I get totally lost - probably because I am not familiar with different terminologies. I do not have an access a Leopard machine. I only have windows right now. Borrowed a mac to create SL install DVD image and loaded it to USB. Here is what I have: GA-EX58-UD5 Intel core i7 920 nvidia gtx 280 6gb ocz 2 x 500 gb WD caviar blue (windows on 1, and trying to install SL on other) corsair 650W PSU I've read, and tried to follow some guides: 1) I tried Lifehacker's Guide followed it exactly (hoping it'd work on my computer) but I get to loading part, right before where I think I choose language, and lose video signal. No idea whats causing this. 2) Most other guides for UD5 here seems to require leopard or some OS X installed. I already have a USB with SL Install DVD on it - from doing Lifehacker's guide. get to: - "Press any key to enter startup options." - "Chameleon v2.0-RC1 r" loads and i press Enter to select the USB. - says "loading darwin" then I see apple logo and the rotating thing below the logo. It goes on for a little bit and then my monitor has no signal. Since I can see apple logo and loading, I figure maybe my configurations in some plist files are not correct? I figure I'll need to have proper kexts? Can I just drop these in the Extra/Extension folders? It contains Extensions.mkext, but I have no idea what that file contains! anyone have any pointers on what I can do to move from losing video signal to installing? or how I can get/setup kexts and smbios or any other files need? Also appreciate any other general help as well. I know there are all these guides here and thats great, but i'm just really confused/intimidated by them because I don't know much about how to set up these things. I am learning though... Thanks!

    "no monitor signal" help please

    I have the same exact problem. I can load it, but when its supposed to get to the graphical part (choosing language etc) monitor goes dark - no signal. also have nvidia 280. This is my first attempt to building mac on my pc... what should I do next? I followed the instructions from lifehacker (found here: http://lifehacker.com/5351485/how-to-build...tart-to-finish) , except i don't have the same exact hardware config. I have gigabyte ud5 mobo. core i7 , 6gb ram, and nvidia 280 graphics card.
