    [How To] Intel DG35EC Guide

    I don't know if anyone is still watching this thread. I am trying to get my setup to boot without *Boot disc. I already have Snow Leopard installed using bootloader and a beast of a program downloaded from a website whose name i won't mention. I used the Easy***** and System Utilities for install. When I try to boot using -v PCIRootUID=1 GraphicsEnabler=Off -f I get "can't get kextd" tried using a Legacy *Boot instead of newest version, and got message saying bootloader needed to be updated. I did update bios as per instructions at the beginning of this thread, and made sure my settings were the same.. Is the DG35EC Boot ISO a bootloader customized for this board? I am sure you can see my other steps I have done if you look at my postings in a thread called "OSx Snow Leopard won't boot" on the forum whose name I won't mention here. Any help is appreciated.

    Yup,, that was the message, even after I disconnected the other drive and made this master. I took a picture oh boot screen. not sure if readable. Originally it was slave. This was originally set up with T******x86 instructions and and i boot cd I made.

    Bootable Snow Leopard Flash Drive

    Ok, so as I thought about things the past few days, I decided to take my hardware that I gutted, that was previously used as my XP/Hackintosh setup and put it in another case and hook it all back up. It is all the same: Intel DG35EC Socket 775 mobo, E8400 Core2 Duo 3.0 Ghz cpu and 4 GB Corsair PC6400 DDR2 ram moved intact, same power supply, on board video and sound, same WD 160GB PATA HDD for XP as Master and same WD 160GB PATA HDD as slave, Same LG super multi PATA cd/dvd drive connected to a VIA 6421 eSATA controller in PCIe slot same as before. Truly the only difference is the case itself with usb ports and sound ports on the front. This was a working Hackintosh setup, where all I had to do was hit F10 during boot to choose the boot drive and select the drive with OSx. Otherwise it would boot straight to XP. I had thought it would be simple since it is all the same hardware put back together in a different case. However when I select the OSx drive at boot, I get the screen with the black screen with Apple logo then it moves to gray screen with a dark gray apple and has a spinning circle. eventually a no sign (circle slash). I don't know if the whole install is borked and if I need to start over, or what. If I need to start a new thread I will be happy to do so.

    I was using a PCIe card to run my 2 PATA drives in my old setup which was an Intel board. One had XP the other had OSx. With new Asus, I had the PCIe card installed and wanted to be able to boot to XP on demand. But the BIOS won't see the drive on a PCIe card, or if I connect drive to usb adapter and plug directly to usb ports either. I did not even try to boot hackintosh drive in thet setup either, since it is on a PATA drive. I will think about this more. Might be easier just to reinstall everything to my other box, as the main hardware is intact. I basically completely gutted my box for the upgrade. Thanks again for the help.

    Maybe I am in the wrong thread then. I want to run OSx from the usb drive. I want to be able to plug the thumb drive into my wife's laptop and run OSx. I tried to get OS to run in VirtualBox on her laptop but was unsuccesful. I previously had it on my desktop for my wife's occasional use. When I upgraded my desktop that install was borked, as the new hardware doesn't support IDE drives (which my previous install is on) during boot. No matter what I do, BIOS doesn't see any HDD except the SATA HDD and SSD. Windows sees them though. I had thought it would be easier to install it on a thumb drive, and that is what I thought the goal here was. Maybe it will be easier to take the hardware that I gutted, and put into another box with my existing hackintosh drive, recreating what I had before in a different box. I had planned to do that with the hardware minus the hackintosh drive for my kids to use anyway. Thanks. Edited : And yes that is the screenshot on a Macbook Air (on loan) and it has OSx Snow Leopard 10.6. which is the same as my retail disc I used for my previous Hackintosh.

    The usb stick is formatted already and the install DVD.dmg is on the stick. I have attached a screenshot with the disk identifiers. Where Should I pick up? Thanks for your help!

    With this thread being quite old, I wonder if there is newer instructions? I got as far as 4f in Krishna's instructions. 32 GB Stick partitioned, image of SL on stick, downloaded and unpacked Chameleon, then I get stuck, probably due to newer version. Terminal says file not found. Suggestions anyone?
