  1. Have you tried using the arch=i386 boot flag? I'm also running an AMD processor, and I would get a similar kernel panic unless I used that flag.
  2. Weird graphics boot?

    I'm glad that some progress has been made You can have the working boot flags apply themselves at launch without you typing them in. In your /Extra folder [at the base of your Macintosh hard-drive], you should find a file either called com.apple.boot.plist or org.chameleon.boot.plist. If you can't find these files or the /Extra folder, they might be hidden; you can use a tool like this one to show and hide hidden files and folders (The one linked might come up with an error after running it, but it should've still worked). Once you're in your /Extra folder and have located one of the above files, open it in TextEdit. If it comes up with an error about how you don't have permission, right-click the file, click "Get Info", and in the bottom-right of the new window there should be a lock. Click this, type in your password, and then under the "Privilege" section, change "everyone"'s to "Read & Write". Click the lock again, and then reopen the file; it should open automatically in TextEdit. Now all you need to do is find the section that says: <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>*your existing boot flags</string> Change the string value to the values that worked for you: <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=i386 GraphicsEnabler=Yes</string> *Edit* If you see a key in the file called Graphics Enabler, you can just change the associated key value to No. Otherwise, just ignore this and follow the above procedure: <key>Graphics Enabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=i386</arch> *End of edit* Save the file, close everything, rerun the tool to hide hidden files (if you had to use it), and reboot. Your bootloader will detect the settings that you typed in the file, and boot-up using them. It's a kinda tricky process, but if you get it, it saves you from typing your Boot Flags every time you turn your computer on If you have anymore issues or anymore questions, feel free to ask!
  3. Weird graphics boot?

    You can set Graphics Enabler to yes by adding the boot command: GraphicsEnabler=Yes or if you want to disable it: GraphicsEnabler=No Also, you can try adding: arch=i386 To your launch options, this fixed a lot of the issues I used to have with my Hackintosh.

    It might help to post some system information. Are you using any other launch options? Have you tried setting GraphicsEnabler to Yes/No? Did you recently do an update, or has this always happened? Hopefully we can help you out!
  5. Kernel Panic - boot from hard disk

    Hello! Several people have had this problem in the past. This thread on TonyMac has a solution that has worked for many people. The second post has the fix, and a few posts down shows you how to do it incase you're having problems with the process. Give it a try and see how it goes!
  6. No problem! Report back if you have any issues
  7. Hello! I looked at your computer's specifications and it looks like you have a Realtek RTL8105E. Luckily, Realtek offers an official driver for this, and you can download it here. At the bottom of the page is a download for a Snow Leopard version. As I don't have this Realtek card, I'm guessing you just have to run the included .pkg file and then reboot. As for your Audio, I looked around and found this. It looks like a lot of people have had success with it, and it is extracted from Snow Leopard 10.6.2 by HAZARD. Again, I don't have the hardware to test it on, so good luck!
  8. Introduce yourself.

    Hello there! Like TyMiles, I've been registered here for quite some time just for downloading. I finally built up the courage to come out of my shell and join this community I've just recently completed a Snow Leopard 10.6.8 Hackintosh install on a custom built computer of mine, and thanks to this forum it is running flawlessly! I hope to return the favor and help out future Hackintoshers.
  9. Here is a link to an alternate SMBios.plist file: Download Copy this file to your /Extra directory. The settings dictated in this SMBios are those of a Mac Pro. In order to create a valid Serial Number, you can use the tool Lizard, which you can download here. This program allows you to edit the values inside SMBios using a GUI. You can change how your Hackintosh reads your processor, ram, etc. After downloading the tool and putting SMBios in the correct directory, you can open Lizard up. On the top toolbar, click on "Smbios Options". In the "General" tab of this section, you can see that you can easily configure the SMBios file. The most important thing is to change "Serial Number". Click on "Build it", Then select your country, a random year (I did 2010), generate a random Week and Unit Number by click their associated "random" buttons, and then for "Mac Model" Select "Mac Pro". If you changed the "Model Name" or "Model Identifier" values to a different type of Mac, select the appropriate option in "Mac Model". Close the Serial Builder, hit "Save", and then reboot your computer. On reboot, if you check "About This Mac", the information should reflect your SMBios.plist options. Now that you have a Serial Number, you should be able to run TeamViewer without a problem! If the SMBios file settings don't change your "About This Mac" data, ensure that you have a version of Chameleon that supports this method of SMBios injection (Chameleon 2.0), and that you placed the SMBios.plist file in the proper directory (/Extra).
