  1. Wondering if you could demystify the process for me... I've been reading quite a bit while waiting for Snow Leopard to arrive and must admit to being at a bit of a loss as to how to proceed... Your thread is very clear and you come across as a very helpful person, so I decide to ask for a bit of advice here... Can I use your process to install to the hardware (listed below), or is there perhaps another method that best suits my configuration? Hardware: Asus P6X58D-E i7 930 (2.8Ghz 8 core) 6GB Ram (Corsair CL9), Clean Harddrive (~1TB) Video Card: nVidea 8400GS One more question... My G5 (PPC) is at 10.4 and I know it will allow upgrading to Leopard but I need at least 10.6 to run some of the web development stuff... Are there any hacks to alow getting to 10.6 as it does not have an Intel chip? Mike
  2. Problems with Hazard DVD 10.6.6i install

    That's a distinct possibility as I noticed during a quiet period I moved the mouse and it appeared to have some effect... Thanks, I'll try it UPDATE: That appears to have done the trick... Not wanting to take any chances, I kept it moving during the entire install... In the process of transferring information, will report back when complete... Many thanks for that
  3. Problems with Hazard DVD 10.6.6i install

    Assume I don't need to start a new post as my problem is similar... Managed to overcome my first issue (the waiting for blah...) changed from SATA DVD to an IDE DVD.... Strangely enough I did not have to do this with 10.6.1 or 10.6.2... Hardware: Motherboard: ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe with 2GB of ram... DVD Sony connected to IDE (0 as master)... Drive: 250 GB SATA... Tried a few installs... It appears to be working but only gets to about 50% of the install process and and nothing... Doesn't hang but doesn't finish the install... hard disk activity stopped... I tried several installs, each appears to get to different stage (judging by the process image)... The best so fat being about 50% but normally it only get to about 10%... If I reboot, I can actually log into the new installation but it's slow and not everything works... Any ideas?
  4. M2N-SLI Deluxe BIOS Borking Guide

    Similar problem here... Computer starts up... two to three seconds later, it turns off...I assumed hardware problem and put it aside for a few weeks... Later I tried to get it running (using new PSU) and up it came...Everything worked fine for a few weeks and then it started all over again...This time I noticed if I cleared the CMOS (jumper pins 2 & 3) it would boot but I need to do this every time I booted...If I do not put the CMOS jumper back, it won't remember setting but it will boot every time....As a last resort I changed the CMOS battery and every thing is working fine now....Still not convinced it was a dud battery as these should last at least sever years (8 to 10 years normally)...
