    [HELP] P8P67 LE Boot Hang

    I ended up swapping my LE for an M PRO. But I got further by switching video cards and installing the stuff that I needed to from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] that way. I suggest installing the install package, but not restarting right away. Then you open MB and install the stuff you need to from there. I think is one thing that helped. Also, when I tried GraphicsEnabler=No on boot, I was able to get past the white screen where it freezes. So if you're getting that, then try that boot option to avoid a freeze. Your stuff will move very slowly once you do this, but it will at least boot and then you won't have any issues for a bit while you try to fix everything. These are the options that helped me, so hopefully they help you, too. Good luck. If you have any questions, just post here and I'll see if I can help.
  2. This guide itself is for the P8P67 Pro. I have the P8P67 LE and this won't even work for me. It should work on the general principle, but it still doesn't. My video card kept mine from rebooting, so I tried an HD 4750 and that let it reboot, but it still didn't work properly. I'm just going to swap my board for a Pro and hope that will help. Just try searching google for people with your board that have had success. You have to remember that the graphics card and CPU also matter though.
  3. I've tried regae's way, Andy's way and pretty much every other way. They all end up doing the same thing. I put the disc in, eject at the proper screen and put in my retail disc. After that I start up my retail. I install on the only HDD that I have hooked up. It installs fine and I do a reboot, select the HDD and finish the install. Once I can see my actual desktop, I copy my files over to it and I use the 10.6.7 update. It installs fine and then I restart like I should. This is where the issues occurs. I get to the boot CD and select the HDD for Snow Leopard. Then it just hangs here. When on Andy boot, the screen just has an Apple logo and a dial showing that it's attempting to load. On regae's boot CD it has verbose mode on, so I can see everything. I'll attach the best picture I could take. Regae's Boot CD Thanks. EDIT: I have also tried [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Legacy and it caused my graphics card's fan to speed up quite a bit. So I have thrown that disc away. EDIT 2: I tried not updating to 10.6.7 and just putting on [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. This didn't work and it hung again. Still not sure what the issue is.
  4. I'm gonna post in this topic. I posted in Andy's, too. I have a P8P67 LE and I have SL installed. I do the updated to 10.6.7 and reboot. After the reboot, I have tried using the old Andy boot, new Andy boot 4 and regae boot and none will start up my HDD. With regae boot, I can see the messages. If these will help, I can take a picture of the screen and post it here if needed. Thanks.
  5. Hello, I have a P8P67 LE and I got Snow Leopard to install fine. After that I copied the files to the desktop and installed the update. I then went to reboot and after I select my HDD with SL on it, it hangs. I see an Apple logo and a loading icon below it and that is all. Any ideas? Thanks.
