============================================

Setup

1-Boot from boot cd

2-when you reach to chamleon remove bootcd and put Apple DVD and then press F5 and choose DVD to boot it

or if you have restored it on usb flash memory put it before opening pc and choose it when bootcd reach chamleon

3-if it booted to installer there are no problems and continue setuping

4- if you cant reach to installer boot with flag -v and picture where it stop and make post on topic

5-after setup do restart

 

============================================

 

After Setup

 

1- to boot your installed mac use bootcd to boot this partion contain Mac

2-after it booted do your account and reach desktop

3-after reaching desktop setup 10.6.5 combo update and restart and boot also from bootcd

4-now we prepare to boot from HDD follow that

*setup latest bootloader from here

*or you can install bootloader manually

we will use AnVAL5.0.5 folder on aftersetup tools

follow this

- run terminal

-type
Diskutil List

- you will find all of your partion see where is your mac partion you setuped on it and see what its name like
disk0s2

- type
sudo -s

-type
cd
then pull AnVAL5.0.5 folder to terminal then enter

-type
fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdiskx
as x is the numder of HDD if we use above example will be 0 so it will be
fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0

-type
dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskxsn
x is number of HDD and n is numder of partion if we use above example it will be
dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2

-then copy boot file from AnVAL5.0.5 folder to mac partion root

 

*now there are two files on after setup folder named ( pfix , amd_insn_patcher )

copy them to usr/bin use show hidden files program to go to this directory

* now copy two kexts fakesmc , atiata to system/library/extensions

 

* open terminal and type this command

 

sudo -s
	 rm /mach_kernel
	 amd_insn_patcher /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib.patched
	 cp /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib.patched /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib
	 update_dyld_shared_cache

this was for kernel

 

*then put mach_kernel file from folder aftersetup on mac partion

 

*put you other kexts on system/library/extensions

* open terminal again and type

pfix

*type password and then type number of mac partion then enter and wait till finish

*make new folder on mac partion and name it Extra and put on it this boot.plist

com.apple.Boot.plist.zip

 

*now we finished installing and now you restart and boot from HDD

*you can complete updates from software update

=============================================

for drivers

*audio you can use voodoohda

*eth you see here about LAN

*GFX nvidia cards will work with with out any effort :D

for ati you can get HD5600 HD5700 HD5800 HD5900 with out effort

*for anther gfx cards dont ask me

 

===============================================

updated bootcd to 1.5

how to make quicktime work as it must to be

open terminal and follow this commands

 

sudo -s 
  amd_insn_patcher /System/Library/QuickTime/QuickTimeComponents.component/Contents/MacOS/QuickTimeComponents /System/Library/QuickTime/QuickTimeComponents.component/Contents/MacOS/QuickTimeComponents.patched
  mv /System/Library/QuickTime/QuickTimeComponents.component/Contents/MacOS/QuickTimeComponents.patched /System/Library/QuickTime/QuickTimeComponents.component/Contents/MacOS/QuickTimeComponents

3-After Setup

 

Pre Setup

notes

1- sata mode --> ACHI

is perfared because

IDE kexts causes some times panic during runing scripts

Raid will cause panic during machine check by Snow

2- many people have restart loop during booting so you need this flag

Busratio=16 or busratio of your processsor smile.gif

3-For Intel CORE IX user you can follow this guide because vinalla kernel on 10.6 or 10.6.3 not support core ix

so just follow guide till update to 10.6.4 and dont install legacy kernel .pkg

There are two ways to setup snow leopard on your AMD pc

 

First Way

 

*It is easy way

*You will need 1-BOOTCD

2-RETIAL DVD

*I made boot cd contain { legacy-kernel 10.4 , Fakesmc 319 , Ati&NforceATA , ps2 , ATY_init , Chameleon rc5 rev 384 , flag busratio=16 }

*Download it from here

*Retial snow Leopard 10.6.3 DVD from any source biggrin.gif

*Burn them under windows by poweriso

 

Second Way

 

*It is complicated way some thing

*You will need 1-pre installed mac os x

2-Flash Memory 8GB

3-Retail DVD

4-Some tools download it from here

*First Partion your flash memory by MBR method and format it Mac os Extended (Journaled)

*Then Setup Chameleon RC4 to flash memory

*After Successful Install of Chameleon Restore Retial DVD to Flash memory with out erase like on Image

 

restore.png

 

 

* It will take long time dont worry
sleep.gif

* After restoring

*delete Mach_kernel that on flash memory after restoring show it by this or this

*copy mach_kernel that i linked above to flash memory

*copy extensions folder and boot.plist to extra folder on flash memory

*If You want to set up snow on HDD partioned with MBR Follow This

there are two files copy them on flash memory as directory mentioned smile.gif

*now You are ready to setup

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Setup

For First Way

*First boot from Boot cd

*When chameleon boot screen pop up ask for Retail DVD

*eject Boot cd and put retail DVD

*Press F5

*The name of DVD will apper stand on it

* if you want to use any flag write it ( i already added busratio=16 ) you dont want to write it

*Now Press ENTER and wait till set up screen apper smile.gif

*This Way is easy but slow some thing than flash and you cant set up snow on MBR HDD

For Second Way

 

*Boot from flash memory

*write flag that you want to write ( i already added busratio=16 to boot.plist ) you dont want to write it

*Now Press ENTER and wait till set up screen apper smile.gif

*This Way is complicated some thing but fast and you can setup snow on MBR HDD

 

The way to setup Mac OS X IS Known biggrin.gif I will pass it

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Boot After Setup

 

For First Way

 

*After set up you will use boot CD to boot your partion contian setup of Snow Leopard

*Stand on Partion and press flag you want ( i already added busratio=16 to boot.plist ) you dont want to write it

*complete set up to become on desktop smile.gif

 

For Second Way

*After set up you will use Flash Memory to boot your partion contian setup of Snow Leopard

*Stand on Partion and write This flag

hd(0,1)/mach_kernel

*complete set up to become on desktop smile.gif

 

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

After Setup

 

* Now we finish our work

*First download 10.6.4 update from apple

*After Setup Dont restart

*Setup Chamelon RC4

*after Setup boot loader put your boot.plist that contian flag busratio=16 on extra it is very important to next step smile.gif

*After thus setup legacy kernel it will add kernel name to boot.plist we added before and patch CPUID wink_anim.gif

*before you reboot you must install FakeSMC.kext use Kext helper from here with latest Fakesmc

*Now you can Restart

*After restart you can now install your kexts you need eth , Audio , GFX

*There A good library for kexts wink_anim.gif from NAWCOM thanks to him you can download what you want from here

 

* For sleep sleep.gif use this but your usb may not work after sleep unsure.gif

Big Thanks to all Software programers whom made all thing on this topic

updated boot cd

mach_kernel updated rev5 by andy

fakesmc 405

people have nvidia card must boot with -x after setup to get it works

 

---------------------------------------------------

updatw 9/10/2010 important

people whom have problem from bootloader cant work after install just follow this command

 

1- download this new tools

2- you will find compressed files we need for boot loader i386 folder uncompress it

3- run terminal

4-type Diskutil List

5- you will find all of your partion see where is your mac partion you setuped on it and see what its name like disk0s2

6- type sudo -s

7-type cd then pull i386 folder to terminal then enter

8-type fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdiskx as x is the numder of HDD if we use above exapmle will be 0 so it will be fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0

9-type dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskxsn x is number of HDD and n is numder of partion if we use above example it will be dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2

10- if this done successfully copy boot file from i386 to mac partion

11- now it must boot from HDD smile.gif

 

 

people whom cant deal with new kernel please do this

1- download above tools

2-you will find two files mach_kernel and amd patcher

3 run terminal

4- type rm /mach_kernel

5-copy mach_kernel on tools to mac partion

6-now patch some files

7- first copy amd patcher to /usr/bin

8- run terminal again

9- type this command

 

sudo -s
  amd_insn_patcher /usr/lib/dyld /usr/lib/dyld.patched
  cp /usr/lib/dyld.patched /usr/lib/dyld
  amd_insn_patcher /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib.patched
  cp /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib.patched /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib

 

now you finished patching

 

you need to add to boot.plist

on kernel flags

-force64

this flag important to run on 64bit

 

people whon have problem with fakesmc panic

there are fakesmc on tools free from plugin use it

 

and run pfix smile.gif

 

good luck

 

-------------------------------------------

14/10/2010

new bootcd 0.6

just small fix replace 64bit (-force64)

to normal 32bit

as 64bit cause problems after setup with nivida cards gery blinking black screen

enjoy it smile.gif

 

---------------------------------------------

how to update to 10.6.5

you will download 10.6.5 update from apple combo if you will setup it on 10.6.3 or less

http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1324/...Combo10.6.5.dmg

 

or use update only if you have 10.6.4

http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1325/...SXUpd10.6.5.dmg

 

then after download setup it

and after set finish

bont restart

and backup this two kexts to safe place

 

IOUSBfamily.kext

IOUSBmassStorageclass.kext

 

then put this two old kext on extensions and pfix

http://www.kexts.com/view/608-10.6.4_usb.html

 

if you didnt do this you will lose usb

ithink relase of 10.5 kernel will fix usb bug

so no need for this but now you must do this

instead of using osx to copy the DVD to the Flash drive you could use the linux DD command ex.

 

dd if=retail/dvd of=flash/drive

correct! i had to do it on a old PC that i was experimenting with

 

what about usb error have you found asolution

i believe it is caused by the USB ports being detected as "Expansion Slots" instead of "Built In", this can be fixed via DSDT, but i havent had any luck yet
