Hi all

 

So Ive built my studio hackintosh:

 

OSX 10.6.0 (installed from mounted DMG via myhack) vanilla kernel

Asus P5k Premium Black Pearl Edition

Q8200 (Q9550 on its way)

8600GT 1gb

4gb Kingston Hyper X 1066 (2x2gb)

1GB WD Green HDD (2 partitions)

 

I had an install on both partitions of my harddrive, On the one I was using I upgraded via Software Update to 10..6.3 and broke it, tried all the suggestions I could find and nothing worked. So I formatted the partition and moved to the other one.

 

Ive fixed the DSDT and Im using a few Kexts, I can boot in 64bit if i want to(i stay in 32bit tho) and mostly everything is working fine apart from one massive problem:

 

I cant install OSX on the other partition, ive followed this guide: http://osx86sv.wordpress.com/2009/09/04/ho...asus-p5-series/

 

Which worked great before but now I just get " Installation failed there were errors blah blah blah" how helpful that message is. Ive tried I couple of different ways and get the same result.

Im also getting this when installing Logic Studio from dvd and I would guess other installer based apps.

 

Ive downloaded Universal Snow leopard 3.5 and burnt it to a dvd, when i try to boot to that I get to the Darwin loading page the grey apple flashing up and the computer restarts.(i have a sata drive in the post but im using a ide with a sata convertor at the mo)

 

I have a couple of usb drives (both powered and bus powered) with OSX Install dmgs restored to them and one with an OSX install on it, but I cant boot to them as a get memory allocation errors and one about deadbeef.

 

I have a usb flash boot drive that boots to chameleon, but when selecting my main drive (the only drive i can select BTW) i comes back with a cant find mach kernel error.

 

When I boot to my main chameleon bootloader on my working(somewhat) osx drive It only shows the main drive as selectable.

 

All of this my good people is driving me nuts, anybody got any ideas? and info ive left out?

 

 

Many thanks in advance

 

Matt

When you're installing, it looks like you're trying to use the OSInstall.mpkg method. Did you unselect the Language Translations and Printer Support boxes? It causes the install to fail every time.
