  1. If I run the EFI updater it works, but it breaks my video. I have an ATI x1950xt, and I use a premade GUI injector to install it. They seem to be overwriting each other. How can I get both of them in there and have them both work? Anyway I can do a "diff" of the two boot files and edit it manually? xtort {EDIT} Never mind. I used Jccool's injector. The sad thing is I didn't learn anything except to use someone else's talent. All good now.
  2. Ok I'm going to wipe the drive and start over. Seems like no matter what I try, I still get the AppleIntelCPUManagement.kext timeout. Could my system work on 10.5.8 perfectly, but not on SL because of the hardware? Is that possible? If not, then it really is something I'm doing wrong in the config/install/setup. Pauly
  3. Thanks, I'll try that tonight and see what I can come up with!
  4. I've had this issue on SL for about 3 days. Been trying to find a solution. No one responds to my posts either. As soon as I figure out why it is happening and how to fix it, I'll post it here. Xtort PS> I'm on an ASUS P5B-E running 10.5.8 with an ATI x1950xt, so what works for me may not for you. But it is worth a shot.
  5. I have the same problem, but only in SL, works like a champ on the same system running 10.5.8. I'll stick with 10.5.8 until I can figure out why this hangs. I'm using an ATIx1950xt
  6. This worked great for me with one small problem. When I boot into the SNOWhdd harddrive, I keep getting the following message and it hangs waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out I have three sata drives in the ASUS P5B-E, Windows 7, Leopard 10.5.8 (works flawlessly) and SNOW. I can access the SNOWhdd from the Leopardhdd, so what do I need to change in order to get it to boot past this message? I've searched the forums, but I can't seem to find a definitive cure (naturally one size doesn't fit all in hackOSX). Will fakeSMC fix this? I thought that was only for monitoring CPU temp? Will removing the appleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext fix it? Should I replace it with a different kext? Here are the kext that I currently have loaded in S/L/E. AHCIPortInjector.kext AppleRTC.kext ATAPortInejctor.kext Disabler.kext dsmos.kext fakesmc.kext IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext OpenHaltRestart.kext PlatformUUID.kext VoodooHDA.kext
  7. I tried this method (but used an external usb hdd instead of thumbdrive) but the install failed at the end. I tried to do this from a woring 10.5.8 hdd in my P5B-E hackintosh. I used a second sata drive for the SL install. It made it all the way to the end, and then it said the install failed. I didn't do the SMBIOS, do you think that is the difference here? I tried Empire EFI but that just hangs on the appleIntelCPUPowerManagement timeout "error". Xtort
  8. Ok forgive the n00b questions here. I have installed 10.5.8 successfully on almost every mb I have (ASUS, Intel and Dell desktop and laptop) but I just cannot seem to get SL to work! In fact, I can't even get it to install! On my ASUS P5B-E (using Empire EFI) it just hangs after I put in the SL DVD (retail) at the appleIntelCPUPowerManagement timeout. I created a read/write DMG of the SL Install DVD, but I can't re-burn it to disc because it is too big. My hope was to just delete the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext file entirely, but not sure if that will work. If you haven't installed the OS yet, how do you delete a kext file? Would that really fix it, or do I need fakesmc? I guess my first stumbling block is that I don't know how to edit files since I can't get it installed to begin with. Thanks, xtort
  9. I installed 10.5.8 without any issues, but when I try to use this guide to install SL, I get the "wait for service appleIntelCPUPowerManagement timed out" after I put in the SL disk. Wouldn't this work for everyone the same? Is there something in the BIOS that I should change? I originally had the problem of the "waiting for root device" but I removed the IDE DVD and used a SATA DVD instead, which resolved that issue. Any advice would be appreciated. I've installed using BOOT-132 on other boxes, but I can't seem to get a working SL on any of my machines (except my Dell D630 laptops). I'm using an ASUS-P5B-E. Everything (ethernet, ATI 1900xt, firewire, sound...) works in 10.5.8.
  10. I'm wanting to do this exact thing this weekend. Would be great if you put up the how to and the kext files. I can host the files if posting them here is a problem. I have 10.5.8 working like a champ with everything operational (except sleep), and I made a super-duper copy to another driver in hopes that if I jack this plan up too much I can fall back to the second copy of 10.5.8.
  11. If anyone finds the links and/or files let me know. I will host the files for JcCool.
