  1. I'm not getting this. I lose it point 6. I downloaded pack 1.06 (the latest one). When I install Chameleon, the only visible difference is adding the "boot" file to the root. There is no Extra folder created. Also, there is no extensions.mkext in the pack that I'm apparently meant to copy to the non-existent Extra folder!?!? Also, I do not understand French and used Google Translate, and it seems badly translated with some non-sensical sentences etc?!

    What format is best for this purpose?

    Hmmmm, interesting. The 80GB is simply a backup that's NEVER used. I have some very sentimental pics, including World travel ones etc so I want them all on their own drive as a kind of vault backup. I might consider adding a second 500GB drive and have one 500GB for Windows, one 500GB for OSX and the 640 as the depository drive to be used by both. What I was hoping was to have a single 'iTunes Media > Music' folder that could be directed to by both OSX and Windows 7 iTunes installations. That would mean both would see and utilise the collection in iTunes and would mean I would not have to duplicate my entire collection for use by both OS's. I am an avid music collector and recently digitalised everything and currently have about 200GB worth of music, so not exactly a small amount of space to have to duplicate! However, this is what I'm probing as to whether it's possible.

    So FAT32 would work then and be seen by both OS's? That would work as, like I noted, it will be a music-only drive more than likely, using mp3's @ 320kbps rather than FLAC/losless, so each file will only be about 15MB maximum, well below FAT32's 4gb limit. So that would definitely work if the 500GB drive was formatted in FAT32 you think?
  4. Hi, I'm about to install a dual boot system on my custom PC. All my parts are fully Mac compatible and bought for purpose. My hard drive setups are: 1 x SATA 640GB 1 x SATA 500GB 1 x IDE 80GB My intention is to have the 80GB solely as a Windows backup drive to store photos onto so I won't ever lose them when I reformat a hard drive. The 640GB is to be split into 2 partitions, one for Windows 7 64 bit and one for Mac OSX Lion 64 bit. The 500GB is to store all my media on, that is music and perhaps films etc. Anyway, here is my query. What format can I use to format this drive so that it can be seen by both the Windows 7 and OSX OS's (with no risk of loss/erasing data)? The main purpose for the 500GB will be as a music centre drive, allowing iTunes to pick it up from both the operating systems. The purpose I am doing this is because I want OSX for music production and photo/video editing and the Windows install for gaming.
  5. I've used the bootloader and got the Snow Leopard 10.6 retail disc running without needing any boot command (like -x or -v). It install sperfectly with no problem and I get the big gree tick after a successful installation. When restarting, I pop the disc in and this is where my glitching begins. When using the Boot disc and trying to boot my Install OSX it freezes at the ACPI: System State [s0 S3 S4 S5] (S3) line. This is the line before the "RTC single RAM" line. This happens in -v and -x boot. I know the RTC thing is the problem as I've previously tried to install various version and got ElliottForceLegacyRTC panic. HOWEVER, if I use bootloader disc, then pop the retail disc in as per install process, then boot the hard drive install, it boots. However, I don;t really want to have the disc in the entire time. I'm a newbie at this, but I'm pretty confident that the "RTC" issue is causing my issues and just need to resolve this final thing before I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 mac! Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease someone help me resolve this as I'm sensing I'm within touching distance! My specs are: Model: Dell Inspiron 1520 Laptop CPU: Intel Celeron M 540 1.86GHz Motherboard: Del Inspiron 1520 RAM: 2GB RAM HDD: 80GB Graphics: Intel 965 Express Chipset Family GMA X3100 Audio Controller: Sigmatel 9205 High Definition Audio Controller IDE Controller: Intel ICH8M USB Controller: Intel ICH8 Family WLAN: Dell 1390 Wireless Mini Card Ethernet: Broadcom 440x 10/100 Intergrated Modem: HDA CX11270 Soft Modem Card Reader: Ricoh Controller
  6. I have installed iAtkos 10.6.3 S3 v2 on my Dell Inspiron 1520 system. I have installed twice now and got issues both times. Installed first time and got into OSX and through registration etc. It first playing the "staying alive" music but I could not see anything. After the video finished and teh voice reader tutorial prompt, I moved the mouse and up popped OSX. All worked perfectly using EFI boot option. However, upon restarting, I got a panic and it seemed to be stemming from VoodooHDA as far as I could understand from the text on screen. I've re-installed and it all went fine again. Same as before, got "staying alive" music but no image. However, this time it's just a black screen and I can't see the desktop. I feel like I'm nearly there with this machine and it's within touching distance but need some help for the final push!

  7. Hi all, Looking for tips on doing this as a clean and only install on my laptop. Firstly, I'd like to confirm I've done all the suggested BIOS adjustments for SATA drives, boot priority etc. I got the iso and burnt to disc. I load it up and it runs fine without any errors or issues. I then run it and it takes me to the OSX install screens. I then use Disk Utility to format my hard drive etc. I then customize the install options (only choosing the ones I think are needed for my components). Then, the installation process begins and takes about 20 minutes. Then, it auto-restarts when it seems to be completed. The problem is, when Chameleon starts up again, it has my Snow Leopard drive there. However, the problem is that if I choose it it just restarts again straight away. If I use -x it goes to the grey apple screen. If I use -v -x it runs through pages of text before flashing one about "No DSDT something or other", with a line or two underneath it (flashes too quick for me to read it) and then restarts again. Seem to be stuck at this part. Tried installing just the base package as a minimal install but same problems. Any ideas? According to this HCL page, my laptop's core components are compatible with 10.6.6, which is where I'm trying to head to. My system runs: CPU: Intel Celeron M 540 1.86GHz Motherboard: Del Inspiron 1520 RAM: 2GB RAM HDD: 80GB Graphics: Intel 965 Express Chipset Family GMA X3100 Audio Controller: Sigmatel 9205 High Definition Audio Controller IDE Controller: Intel ICH8M USB Controller: Intel ICH8 Family WLAN: Dell 1390 Wireless Mini Card Ethernet: Broadcom 440x 10/100 Intergrated Modem: HDA CX11270 Soft Modem Card Reader: Ricoh Controller

    Retail 10.6 for Asrock owners

    Hi, This is my motherboard: http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=4CoreDual-SATA2

    Retail 10.6 for Asrock owners

    Hi, Did you manage a clean install or did you run out of existing Leopard? Asking as I've and ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 mobo and got it up to 10.5.8 using iPC 10.5.6 and then iDeneb 10.5.8. It dual boots fine with Windows 7 Ultimate too. Looking to upgrade to Snow Leopard though. Once I figured out how to upgrade, can I then uninstall Leopard? If so, what's the best way to do that? Just asking as I'd like Chameleon to just give me thw two options of OSX Snow Leopard or Windows 7 Ultimate when dual booting. Cheers.
  10. I installed iPC 10.5.6 Universal successfully. I then used iDeneb's 10.5.8 Combo Upgrade Kit and successfully got up to 10.5.8. However, I then used Chameleon and this is where my issues rose. I get the option at boot, but it shows all my partitions. It boots into Windows 7 fine but won't boot into OSX. In Windows Disk Manager it shows the OSX drive but no letter/name (as is kind of expected due to unrecognised format). However, it says 100% of it is free. Any ideas why it won't boot into OSX? I think I may have installed ANV kernel by accident the last time I used it, overwriting the Voodoo 9.5.0 kernel. Now, when I insert the iPC disk to try and reinstall the Voodoo 9.5.0 kernel, the OSX disk doesn't appear, and where it originally showed my different partitions available, now it just shows the physical hard drives. OSX was booting up fine until I booted into Windows 7 and then it won't boot into OSX now. Any ideas??? My system is: ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 Motherboard with original, unmodified 1.90 BIOS Intel E4600 Core2Duo 2.40GHz CPU @ 2.8GHz 2GB DDR2 667MHz RAM (2 x 1GB sticks in Dual Channel mode) NVidia 7900GS 256MB DDR3 GFX Card Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 Platinum eX Sound Card 80GB IDE HDD (only got the one partition) 750GB SATA2 HDD (got 4 partitions which are Windows 7, OSX Leopard, Music and General Storage)
