  1. Hey everyone, The past month I've been ripping my neck trying to get this installation of OSX Snow Leopard running on my machine. Everything works perfectly, QE/CE, sound, ethernet, video drivers, etc. It's pretty much a working installation EXCEPT it's very sluggishly slow. I don't mean constantly slow, OSX freezes up and locks up every minute or so. I'd be surfing just fine or opening a folder, things work great, then beach ball cursor for 2 minutes, then back to normal. Any ideas how to fix this? I think it has something to do with my boot options or external HD. I don't boot with any boot flags, they're all in my org.chameleon.Boot.plist in E/E. I'm booting with mach_kernel, using GraphicsEnabler=y, -force64, arch=i386, -v, cpus=1 I'm currently running Snow Leopard 10.6.7 via Hazard's Distro 10.6.2 AMD/Intel. I upgraded to 10.6.7 by combo update+legacy update. (I've tried every other distro and even tried using retail DVD with Nawcom/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] but no go) AMD Athlon X3 450 (3.2Ghz), 8GB of RAM, GeForce 9500 GT. Bootup takes very long (approx 5 minute to access desktop) and file transfers (internal or external) takes so long. 1GB takes like 30 minutes to transfer. A lot of the apps crash such as Chrome, iTunes, etc. (Probably because I'm running 64?) Bootloader Chimera doesn't work either, I have to always use the Hazard disc to select the Mac Partition. Do you guys have any idea why it's bugging out? It's weird, some tasks are fast like animations, but navigation is very slow and freezes etc. Many thanks! PS: When you boot, does the bootloader use the boot.plist from E/E or the one in the SystemPrefs folder? Also, when you type in your own flags at bootloader, does that cancel the ones in the boot.plist?
  2. Deleting SleepEnabler.kext in Terminal Help

    It says Read-only file system, so I'm assuming I don't have permission to delete them,
  3. Hello everyone, I've searched everywhere and cannot delete the SleepEnabler.kext in Terminal. The problem is, I can't get correct Permissions. I'm booting via Install DVD to access Terminal, if I type: mount -uw / It responds: Permission Denied. Other things I've tried gave me: Resource is busy Any clue on how to delete SleepEnabler? I've tried booting in -s, -v, -x, etc, no go. I've tried pmVersion=0 and pmVersion=21, no go. Everything I've tried booting with gave me a Kernel Panic so I decided to boot via DVD and access Terminal that way. When I boot with -s or -v, it says "Kernel Extensions in backtrace (with dependencies): sk.triaxis.kext.SleepEnabler (1.0.0) Any help guys? Thanks so much for the support. Update 1 I typed "rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/ -ls" in terminal and apparently the SleepEnabler.kext isn't there. I also did "ls -la" in Extra/Extensions and didn't find SleepEnabler. Why am I still getting kernel panics from it if it's not there anymore? Is there another place I have to delete SleepEnabler? Update 2 If I boot with pmVersion=0 -s -v, I get: If you want to make modifications to files: /sbin/fsck -fy /sbin/mount -uw / If you wish to boot the system: exit When exiting, it fails to load SleepEnabler.kext PS: I installed a corrupted version of SleepEnabler.kext and now I can't even boot up, all I get is kernel panics. My working SleepEnabler.kext is in the Trash, the corrupted one is in the Extensions folder.
  4. Booting Verbose Works. Why?

    No, I'm not using any type of Chameleon theme, best of luck to you! I'm also trying to update Mac OS X to see if maybe that'll resolve any issues, though, I currently do not know how to update via iAtkos (I'm running 10.6.3) I want to get the App Store
  5. Booting Verbose Works. Why?

    Hello everyone, I'm currently a beginner at learning the OSx86 project and I have successfully installed Mac OS X Snow Leopard on my Gateway T-6345u using iAtkos s3. I have successfully installed all the necessary kexts/drivers to get the machine up and running very smoothly EXCEPT: The bootup (kernel panic) It appears that every 1 out of 2 times I turn on the machine. it gives me a kernel panic. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't (Note that I didn't change anything between the working bootup and the nonworking bootup) What I DID find out was that by booting in Verbose mode "boot -v" seems to fix the kernel panic if I consecutively get it. Can someone explain to me why booting in verbose always works for me but booting normally sometimes doesn't work? Isn't Verbose mode the same as normal boot except it shows the actual process visually? How is it different and how can I fix this issue? (kernel panics randomly at bootup) Thank you for your time and support, it is greatly appreciated!
