xxRYBOxx posted a topic in OSx86 10.6 (Snow Leopard)Background After searching though an abundance of forums to get through many errors and graphics problems, I have been able to put together 2 very successful AMD 10.6.8 computers. The process is very easy, and should work on any AMD computer. System Specs: ASUS M4A79 Deluxe AMD Phenom II X3 720(2.8Ghz) Overclocked to 3.4GhzX4 G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) HIS AMD 6850 GPU Before you install Download my Zip from rapidshare Unzip Burn The mod CD to a disk Go out and "buy" a copy of 10.6.3 or 10.6.4 Reboot and go into bios Make sure the drive you are installing to is set to AHCI Turn off Cool N' Quiet Turn off C1E Install Boot from that Mod CD that you burned earlier Wait till it shows the nawcom chameleon screen, insert the 10.6.3 or 10.6.4 disk and press F5 When the install DVD pops up type in "GraphicsEnabler=No" and hit enter This should bring you to the install screen, if you have a problem, leave a comment below When you get to the install screen keep hitting next till you get to destination select and then open Disk Utility In Disk Utility, select the HDD you want to install to and then go to erase and name it what you want to. After you have erased it, it will show up in destinations, select it and hit next when you get to the last screen, hit Customize and deselect Graphics Enabler Click Install If all went well, it should bring you to the setup screen were you enter all your info(dont worry if the graphics look weird, that will be fixed when we update to 10.6.8) Go through everything, and then transfer the folder from the zip on to the mac desktop Updateing to 10.6.8 to give you the app store and full graphics support Download and install the 10.6.8 combo update http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1399 (DO NOT CLICK RESTART!!!) With the 10.6.8 window still open, go into the folder from the zip Open up the legacy kernel package and finish installing that Open [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and install the IOUSBFamily Rollback and System utilities ONLY Once that is complete, go in the Kexts folder, and open up Kext Wizard In Kext Wizard, go to the Installation tab, find and select the 2 kexts in kexts folder, click the System/Library/Extensions button, and click install Once completed, go into Maintenance click on the System/Library/Extensions button, and then click Execute After it is done(it takes a while), close Kext Wizard [*]Go back to the combo update window, and click restart Your Done!

Hi There, So here goes, I got installation completed using this method: Put in ModCd and USB (with retail on) >>> Boot into the modcd >>> Went over the mac osx installer >>> typed (arch=i386 busratio=17 cpus=1 npci=0x2000 rd(0,0)/Extra/modbin_kernel -v) I have tried lots of others but this is the only on that worked. Now im in OSX retail installation >>> Format hard drive >>> Clicked customized (Any help on what to tick here would be great) I took a guess at what to tick >>> rebooted. The next part im unsure of, do I leave the modcd in and type boot flags over the OSX or do I take the disk out and try flags in chameleon over the OSX? 1) Leaving the modcd in. Tried many different combinations of flags and I get mainly 2 kernel panics. i) Stops at minit (64mb.... ii) Double panic (CPU,0)..... 2) Take modcd out. No flags gives me apple logo and stops. i) Kernel panic showing a kext? (Maybe this is the issue?) ii) Plain black screen. (Monitor is on as I can see the back light) Somebody please help me, I feel like I am so close. Thanks Scott.
