  1. Bump: I'm sure there are quite a few new Cedarview machines out there since Christmas has come and gone. Anyone have any ideas?
  2. I am noticing that their exists a few Gateway machines in the compatibility list. Has anyone had any success with the machine in my title or any other machine with the Intel N2600 CPU and GMA 3600 graphics set? Thank you
  3. I would like to know if anyone has had any luck as well. Just bought a couple Gateway LT4010u Netbook PCs with Intel Atom N2600 and Intel GMA 3600 graphics. These have 64MB of dedicated memory in contrast to what Lunux mentions above. At present they are available for $228 from Gateway, Walmart and few other places. Would be nice if I could convert these little bad boys. Also: What does non-starter mean in this case? Is their no interest, or is there a particular component which precludes this unit from eventually having OS X on it?

    Install problems on AMD Athlon II X4 processor

    Any ideas? thx - P
  5. Hello, I am looking for some help. I don't know where to start with the troubleshooting, so let me explain what I have for hardware and where I've gotten so far. Hardware; ASUS M4A785TD-M Evo motherboard AMD Athlon II X4 620 2.6GHz processor (4) ADATA DDR3 1600 2GB sticks for a total of 8GB ram PNY GeForce GT240 1024MB DDR3 graphics adaptor various SATA hard drives System bios changed from IDE to AHCI I have read many tutorials, but ended up trying to follow this excellent one, Install Snow Leopard on AMD PC, Laptop by Taranfx as it is specifically written for AMD processors. I have an iMac running 10.6.4 and an 8GB Staples memory stick to use. I have an extra legal Snow Leopard install DVD. I see people reference build numbers, but I am not aware how to determine which I have. The DVD itself is marked with "Install DVD", "Version 2.6" and "2Z691-6558-A". I followed the Install Snow Leopard on AMD PC, Laptop tutorial until I hit my first snag at step 6, "Run Chameleon RC2 and select the new drive...". I ran the Chameleon RC2 package included in the Hardknox zip file as indicated. The installation ran all the way to the end and gave me an, 'Installation Failed' message. I then downloaded the Chameleon-2.0-RC4-r684 binary files and tried the manual install per the README file under the 'Normal Install (Non-RAID)' section. I believe this was successful, but don't know how to verify. I believe the installed would have moved some extensions from the Chameleon 2.0-RC4, 'Extensions' directory to the /Volumes/Snowfx/Extra/Extensions directory, but the normal install I performed did not do this. I did not delete the Disabler.kext file from the /Extra/Extensions directory since it did not exist there. Again, possibly because of the manual installation that I perfomed missing some operations.So, on a guess, I copied the files from the 10.6 and common directories over to the /Snowfx/Extra/Extensions directory. In step 9, I did not have to delete the old “Extensions.mkext” file because it did not exist in my case. In step 11, I copied the “com.apple.boot.plist" from my iMac because I could not find the file on the USB stick/Snowfx volume. When complete, I tried to boot and when running a normal boot, it shows me the Chameleon graphic and then eventually does a kernel panic. I did the same with a verbose boot and the same eventual error was noted. I have attached a screenshot of the error messages displayed when the panic occurred. So, I am basically looking for some assistance to determine what I am missing, doing wrong, etc... so I can begin the troubleshooting process. I know this will eventually work, it is just a learning process. Thank you in advance. - P
