  1. Random kernel panic while in use

    Removing the IDE drive fixed it. Thanks!
  2. Random kernel panic while in use

    Alright, gonna give it a shot tomorrow.
  3. Random kernel panic while in use

    Weird... I've not really touched the DVD drive. If anyone else can shed light on that, it'd be nice. Thanks for the link to the fix you use for the freezing, I was still getting that also Just had another KP, this time reporting more problems: http://filesmelt.com/dl/IMG_05721.JPG
  4. Random kernel panic while in use

    Well, I booted verbose just now and the resulting KP displayed this: http://filesmelt.com/dl/IMG_05711.JPG Is it the 460 causing it? Or something else? (I'll try the VLC thing, thanks.)
  5. Random kernel panic while in use

    After a bit of reading I saw that the 460 has an issue with it going into power save mode. I tried the workaround suggested (Running itunes visualiser) But again, after about 10 minutes, KP. Not so sure where my problem lies now.
  6. I recently got my system up and running with 10.6.8 and now it'll kernel panic every 10 or so minutes. Sometimes it'll just lock up, sometimes it'll display the "Hold the power button to turn off etc etc" It's only started doing it after I installed the official nVidia drivers, though. Could that be the problem? My system: Gigabyte EP43-DS3L GTX 460 Q6600 8 GB DDR2 Any help would be appreciated.
  7. Hey. Last year I followed this guide with no problems and got OSX 10.6 up and running along side windows. However after a huge format and such I can't seem to get it to work now, the only difference in hardware between then and now is that I've upgraded from a GTS 250 to a GTX 460. I get a kernel panic while attempting to boot my SL install USB. Specs: Q6600 GA-EP43-DS3L 8 GB of RAM GTX 460 3 SATA drives 1 IDE Drive Not too sure what's set it off, because like I said, the -only- thing that's changed is the graphics card.
  8. Oops, skipped over that bit It's all working perfectly, thanks very much!
  9. I got myself a proper USB stick with enough room and I'm currently restoring the image to it right now, if I get the same error when putting chameleon on it I'll try Dr Hurt's installer. Edit: It worked perfectly and I'm installing as we speak. Now one final question, I was reading that when you do the 10.6.2 update it KP's? What am I supposed to do to avoid that, heh. I apologise if it's been answered but it's a big thread
  10. Yeah seems like you can only manage to install OSX from an ipod onto an actual Mac. Oh well. Repair Permissions was greyed out by the way.
  11. The only thing I can think of is that it's an ipod and it's being funny writing to it... but eh, seems a bit far fetched if everything else worked. I was hoping I'd be able to select it from the BootCD you made but sadly I can't. I'll try to dig up a normal usb stick later that's big enough and report back if it worked. If anyone else has any ideas I'm all ears. Oh and thanks for a great guide blackosx.

  13. Yeah it is, I could paste the whole Terminal output if it would help.
  14. Hey, I'm following the guide trying to make a bootable USB install and when I am supposed to do this: bash-3.2# dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk2s2 The terminal returns this: dd: /dev/rdisk2s2: Invalid argument 1+0 records in 0+0 records out 0 bytes transferred in 0.017155 secs (0 bytes/sec) Any help is appreciated, thanks
