  1. Hey I've tried the instructions you've provided, but does not work. When I boot it up from the USB that just finished creating, I get Boot0 error. I'm stuck. Tried fdisk too it didn't work...
  2. For some reason if you have IDE and SATA at the same time it seems to get panic. Well that's what happened in my installation. I had to remove IDE(disabled) and used SATA only.
  3. 10.6.6 to 10.6.7 Update Fully Working! Updated using 10.6.7 Combo Update Normal Update procedures. [Extra] folder - DSDT.aml patched - com.apple.Boot.plist - smbios.plist - Extensions.mkext [Extensions] folder - AD1988b.Fix.kext - FakeSMC.kext - LegacyAppleYukon2.kext - NVEnabler 64.kext - VoodooPS2Controller.kext 100% Working on ASUS P5E Deluxe
  4. Look up for the plist fix codes and check your Bios if the information is true or false. Most likely that information displayed is falsed.
  5. 10.6.0 to 10.6.6 SNOW LEOPARD using Windows REQUIRED FILES [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Snow Leopard 10a432 Snow Lopeard 10.6.6 Update DSDT Auto Patcher Bios Configuration: Make sure you set the bios configuration that is listed here to be the same: Configure SATA as – AHCI C1E Support – Enabled Execute Disable Bit - Enabled Intel® SpeedStep™ Tech. – Disabled ACPI 2.0 Support - Enabled ACPI APIC Support - Enabled ACPI Wake From USB Device – Enabled (optional) From Windows To make this process works make sure you have all the stuff listed below: 1. 8GB USB Flash Drive 2. TransMac from http://www.acutesystems.com/scrtm.htm 3. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] from http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/ 4. Snow Leopard 10a432 5. Snow Leopard 10.6.6 Update 6. DSDT Auto Patcher http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=235523 Step 1: Insert your 8GB USB Flash Drive into USB port and start TransMac. In TransMac (run as Administrator), right click on 8GB USB Flash Drive > Format > Format with Disk Image. Locate your Snow Leopard 10a432 dmg file and OK. Wait for it to finish. Next we are going to copy folders such as: [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], kext, etc files that you think you need. This is for after the installation of Snow Leopard. We will need these files later. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and DSDT Auto Patcher and Snow Leopard 10.6.6 Update folders MUST have in the USB. Step 2: Burn [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to a blank CD-R and leave it in the CD drive. The Install: Step 3: Reboot the computer and boot from CD Drive and USB Flash Drive. Step 4: The screen should appears as above: so Press F5 on the keyboard: You should see Snow Leopard install icon after you pressed F5. Select Snow Leopard installation disc (Boot with command lines if required). You should now have been in the installation process. 1. Language Selection 2. Tools Menu > Disk Utilities > Create partition Mac OSX Extended (Journaled) to the drive you want to install your Snow Leopard to. GUID Partition Table > OK Click APPLY. Close Disk Utilities and continue the installation. Customize the install to make installation faster by meaning just install Snow Leopard only no other stuff such as Printers, etc. The installation should now finish and reboot the computer. Boot with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd in the drive, remove the 8GB USB Flash Drive for now. Again it should look like this: You should see the Snow Leopard (this is from the Hard Drive you installed) Once the boot is done you should now be in Snow Leopard welcome screen. Set up all the details, once finished put the 8GB USB Flash Drive in. Locate DSDT Auto Patcher and select the right Motherboard you have and click Apply This will generate DSDT.aml if you do not see it on Desktop, locate it and move it to Desktop. Locate Snow Leopard 10.6.6 UPDATE and install. DO NOT RESTART! Locate [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and install select the following options are showed in the picture. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], and UserDSDT install Chameleon 2.0 RC5 by default, so you'll not need to check that option. Now Reboot the computer and eject everything out: [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD Rom, USB.

    Yes its possible to create HDD and use it for making installation. Make sure your format should be FAT32 if you are using windows for making installation. Use TransMac to copy the files by Format > Format with Image File. No don't use iATKOS, just get SnowLeopard 10a432 file. Create your own boot is the best for compatibility. Of course you will have issues in some case. But most case of making your own gives you more ideas on configuring your system. More knowledge ! But if you are using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd to boot up the 8gb HDD partitioned snow leopard, then you do not need to create boot flag on the 8gb hdd. If you are not using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd to boot up but 8GB HDD snow leopard with boot flag files in, make sure you put the right kext files in the Extra/Extensions folder. You will need to play with the kexts in extra/extensions folder until you get it right if you are booting from 8gb hdd. I say less headache if you use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]
  8. How are you making the installation / What sort of installation guide did you use? Do not use distribution installation - the preload boot kext files is most likely causing this. Make your own boot and installation instead.

    Pudgy if you are running in Windows, download SnowLeo 10.6 10a432, TransMac, [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], and blank cd-rom, and a 8gb usb flash drive. burn [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to a blank cd using nero (or any program u think is good). run TransMac and put 8gb usb flash drive in. Right click on USB > Format > Format with Disc Image find your snow leopard 10a432.dmg file. wait for installation to finish. in transmac still, click on the usb, on the right side right click > copy here and look for [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Reboot with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD in drive and 8GB USB Flash in usb slot For the rest of installation look up [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] installation guide. I can guarantee you that you will get installation! Start everything fresh! This will clear you mind and make you succeed further. PS: I am working on the 10.6 to 10.6.6 installation guide. Goodluck!
  10. X = Values Values = Numbers Example: PCIRootUID=1 <---pci slot BusRatio=23 <---bus ratio of cpu Core2Duo = 22 (I think!) Look up BusRatio

    You should remove unnecessary hardwares. Have only Motherboard, CPU, Video Card, 4Gb Ram, Hard Drive. Too much hardwares you got can also crash. Try considering bios settings also. Try have these settings in bios: Sata configure as = ACHI C1E Support = Enabled Execute Disable Bit = Enabled Intel SpeedStep Tech = Disabled ACPI 2.0 Support = Enabled ACPI APIC Support = Enabled Get yourself 10.6 snow leopard instead of updated one. Could also be causing the crashes. Boot as -x -v cpus=1 This error you got is just like mine! Instead of using Snow Leopard dvd, I had to buy 8GB USB Flash Drive and used it! Everytime I used Sata/IDE DVD Snow Leopard, I just get circle wheel. End of story.

    Download [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] burn to CD and boot from there to get access to installation. You might want to boot -v (verbose) to see whats giving you the errors. I made installation by booting from [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] + 8GB USB Flash Drive (which has 10.6) and booted with success! Another consider is to make sure you set up your BIOS. Your [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] cd can be boot over and over again if you messed up your installation.
