iDeneb v1.6 10.5.8 Lite Edition


Hi there,


So, my install has been pretty successful. Everything seems to work fine, CI/QE works perfect, multiple displays work, it runs smooth and fast, even in parallels with Windows 7.


I have not had any issues with the system until updates, I haven't used any updates that pop up from apple for Mac OS X, I will update certain applications such as iTunes, Quicktime, Garageband etc. etc. (some iLife components do not update succesfully, but that's not a big deal.) They will update fine, but when I restart the OS after the updates it seems to mess with Chameleon v2 which I use to boot and than it can't find the OS or says there is no OS.


I promptly fixed the issue by booting my iDeneb disk again and reinstalling Chameleon and that fixed the issue, I was able to run Leopard again with the updates installed and I tested and it has been booting fine ever since.


What I would like to know is, in future updates is there a way I can avoid this? Because I'm sure I was just lucky with being able to reinstall Chameleon and I have Time Machine working and backing up my files, so I'm not overly worried.



On a side note (and this has happened since I used windows.) Whenever I put a DVD into my system the computer will shut off, I believe it may be a power supply issue, as I have a very small one (230w) and I have swapped DVD drives to test. However, when I use an OS disc it seems to be fine, Windows 7 disk never shuts off the computer, but Mac OS X will shut it off on occasion. I'm just wondering if anyone maybe has had experience with something like this and if that is indeed the issue.


Thank You.

Definitely get a stronger Power Supply, at least 400 Watts. I'm surprised your 230W holds up at all with the hardware you have, it must be a really good quality PSU.


As someone else said around here somewhere, this is probably the best PSU in the world right now (unless you need more wattage of course):



...then install Chameleon 2.0, you can follow my guide here:
