    [Help] Revive a corrupted SL install

    Hi, actually I removed the HDD and put it in an external USB case so I could use it on my friend's Mac. We finally found out that Chameleon put sleepenabler.kext back into the Extensions folder (while I removed it when updating to 10.6.8). I deleted the kext and now I got my install back and running fine, thanks again
  2. Hello everybody, I'll need your help after doing a big stupid mistake of my own. Here's the story: - I have the GA31M-ES2L which is one the most recommended MB for OSX - I followed the tutorials and successfully installed Snow Leopard, Chamelon, and other kexts/OSX updates and have been running the hackintosh really fine for almost a year now (never touched anything since, nor installed a risky update) - Yesterday I decided to install Mavericks onto a laptop. According to some guides found on google, I had to prepare a USB drive using the latest Chameleon, but (here came my big mistake) instead of selecting the USB drive to install it on, I left the destination drive as my Snow Leopard Install HDD. Since then, everytime I reboot, it would never pass the Apple logo screen and seems locked forever. What I did was to get the Darwin Boot CD I originally used when I first installed Snow Leopard. I booted on that CD, then selected my SL HDD, and it successfully booted again. As I didn't want to relay on the boot forever, I decided to fix my SL HDD by using the old and original Chameleon to "repatch" back to the old version. That's what I did, but now, it kernel panics each time I try to boot. The message is like "You must reboot the Mac by pressing the power button..." What I can I do? If I do a new install of SL, I guess I will loose everything right? (I don't want to loose anything) Thanks in advance for your help and sorry for my bad English. Edit: I forgot to say that I originally installed 10.6.3, then updated to 10.6.8 six months ago. And IIRC, one of the error message was "wrong kernel version" or something like that. I can take a photo if you wish

    [Help] 10.6.3 G31M-ES2L

    Hello everybody, I am a really newcomer in the osx86 world so please forgive the noobish questions I would like to ask. My specs are: E1200 dual core celeron G31M-ES2L v2.0 Sparkle nVidia 8600 GTS 256Mo I have followed the French tutorial step by step and so far it worked like a charm for me. I got a functionnal OS at first try (well I had to install the appropriate kexts for Atheros and AppleHDA for it to work) Now I still got some troubles getting it work like a "real" Mac. For instance, command+shift+3 normally takes a screenshot and put it on the desktop. It doesn't work for me. I hear the "click" sound but no screenshot file. I also installed some games but so far most of them won't work. For instance, Age of mythology. It says: "cannot find any D3D compatible device"!! Direct3D on a mac?? I don't understand, my Geforce 8600 is recognized by SL and still, it won't run games. Maybe I need some other kexts to enable GC functions? Also I tried to put the voodohda.kext instead of applehda and it crashed the system: each time I boot it says "please turn off and turn on your mac".. Finally my last question is: how to enable quartz extreme? Or maybe is it enabled by default? How to check? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
