  1. I'm attempting to boot from the USB stick to perform the install. Following LifeHacker's guide I restored the install DVD to the usb drive and made it bootable using Chameleon-2.0-RC4-r684. That gave me a kernel panic on boot. Then I found this thread and replaced the boot file and Extra foler with this one and replaced the mach_kernel with the patch, following eugene k2's instructions. Chameleon loads and I press enter on my usb drive in Chameleon, there is no kernel panic but it just hangs at the apple logo. I have an esata drive I can try. Thanks
  2. Thanks for the post, I tried your settings and it sill hangs for me at the apple logo using a usb boot drive. One I thing I can't find is where to set the VRAM to 512KB. I see an iGPU frame buffer setting that can be set to 512MB (256MB default) but no VRAM I can set to 512KB.
  3. Ok, I solved this, I didn't realize that I had to overwrite mach_kernel with the patch on the install image usb drive. Now I don't get the kernel panic, but it just hangs at the apple logo, the installer doesn't start. Could this be because I have the upgrade DVD, not the one with iLife and iWork? or is it something else? Thanks
  4. Thanks very much for the boot file. But I have a problem, not only with this boot file but with various other ones: kernel panic @ PowerManagment/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagment-90/pmProcessor.c:210 Debugger called: <panic> I tried changing the S-ATA setting to ACHI but that didn't change things. Using Zotac IONITX-A-U, the "U" is, apparently, just a region code. Thanks for any advice.
  5. Hi, I have an old PowerPC with OSX 10.4.2 and I bought a retail Snow Leopard DVD. After reading various install guides, they all talk about first formatting your boot drive with the GUID partition table option. I do not have that as a listed option, the choices I have are: Apple Partition Scheme PC Partition Scheme Will one of these work? Thanks
