  1. Snow Leopard on Inspiron 530

    Just software update for me.
  2. Snow Leopard on Inspiron 530

    10.6.7 is an easy update for the Inspiron 530. I had no issues whatsoever. I have lion working on my 530. Please go to the new Inspiron 530 Lion topic for info and any conversation related to Lion and the 530.
  3. Dell Inspiron 530

    I got Lion running on my Dell Inspiron 530 using: Chameleon 2 RC5 rev. 760< Kext Wizard FakeSMC.kext 3.1.0 IOATAFamily.kext VoodooHDA.kext 2.7.2 I am very interested in the new Clover EFI Bootloader Project over at projectosx.com Guide: 1 - Mount your Lion image 3 - Restore “BaseSystem.dmg” (hidden file) from install disk to a USB drive 4 - Remove “Packages” alias from System/Installation on the USB drive 5 - Copy /Packages from 10.7 image to /System/Installation in external USB drive 6 - Install the latest Chameleon RC5 rev. to the USB drive: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=225766 7 - Navigate to System/Library/CoreServices folder on the USB drive and delete PlatformSupport.plist 8 - Copy FakeSMC.kext and IOATAFamily.kext to System/Library/Extensions 9 - Repair permissions: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=253395 10 - Put your DSDT.aml and com.apple.Boot.plist in /Extra 11 - You may wan't to add some of these to your plist <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> 12 - Test and troubleshoot Please let me know if you get Lion working, if I missed something, or if you've found a better way.
  4. Buy a Snow Leopard DVD http://goo.gl/lNnpg And use the nawcom Mod CD to install it http://goo.gl/rnzRP
  5. Try this: http://goo.gl/Nmrxn It works in 64bit mode.
  6. [GUIDE] Snow Leopard on Inspiron 530.

    You can find the Boot CD at: http://goo.gl/zOgiT I probably will make a guide, add postboot stuff and MBR support.
  7. [GUIDE] Snow Leopard on Inspiron 530.

    I updated "A Chance of Snow at 5:30" Using DSDTSE I extracted my DSDT and installed it. DSDTSE auto magically applied 11 Optimizations. Using a SleepEnabler.kext and this new DSDT I was able to get sleep. But when I wake the computer up by hitting a keyboard key the keyboard will not work unless I replug it, and the same goes for the mouse. So I use the computers power button to wake it. I made a Chameleon boot CD for the Inspiron 530. With this boot CD you can install Snow Leopard on your Inspiron 530 with just a Retail Snow Leopard install DVD and this CD. No need of access to a computer running OS X.
  8. Snow Leopard on Inspiron 530

    I updated "A Chance of Snow at 5:30" And I made a Boot CD
  9. Building a Hackintosh

    Check out the three different builds that are on conti's myHack store. They all should work well with Snow Leopard. And use myHack to install Snow Leopard retail when you get it. http://astore.amazon.com/sojug-20 http://osx86.sojugarden.com/installer/
  10. Problem booting in SL10.6

    I was able to boot into the "Snow Leopard 10.6.1-10.6.2 Intel AMD made by Hazard" installer. I restored the ISO to an 8GB USB drive then installed Chameleon 1.0.11 to the same USB drive using this installer: http://www.kexts.com/view/195-chameleon_1...._installer.html But I can't seem to get the computer to boot after I install. It ether kernel panics, reboots or freezes at a completely gray screen, depending on what options I select in the installer.
  11. Problem booting in SL10.6

    No I haven't gotten it to boot into the install yet. The computer reboots while it is booting into the instal. It reboots right after this line: "ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - wait for service (resource Matching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out"
  12. Problem booting in SL10.6

    I have been trying to install Snow Leopard on my Latitude D610 using the myHack Installer without success. Are you people using a non vanilla kernel? Because I don't think you can get a Pentium M to boot Snow Leopard with a vanilla kernel. I am trying to get it to work using the "Chocolate Kernel" option in the myHack Installer. Mine restarts during boot after it reaches this line "ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - wait for service (resource Matching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out". The extra kexts that I am using are: AHCIPortInjector.kext AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext AppleIntelGMA950.kext ApplePS2Controller.kext fakesmc.kext FramebufferDisabler.kext LegacyAppleIntelPIIXATA.kext LegacyAppleRTC_32bit_Only.kext AppleIntelGMA950.kext IOPCIFamily.kext Let me know if any one has found a solution.
