Hey there, friend, Mohamed!

 

Your guide is great! Everything worked just fine, until the last step.

 

On reset i got kernel panic which was something about fakesmc.

 

Also said something about processor was not Intel so kext for temperature was not loaded (but my guess is that is not problem)...

 

My hardware is:

 

Asus M3A (chipset AMD 770)

 

with onboard audio Realtek ALC883 and Atheros® PCIe Gigabit LAN controller featuring AI NET 2.

 

AMD Athlon X2 5000+ processor and

 

Palit Nvidia GF 8600 GT Sonic+

 

After first time boot in Snow Leo i installed kext for LAN to download 10.6.4 update. Could have that caused the panic?

 

Anyway, hope that you have some suggestion for me...

 

Thank you for great howto, i was searching something like this for months now...

 

Nenad

Nah, repeated entire process again, this time did not installed anything before...

 

Kernel panic fired up right when i click restart after installing update, chameleon and fakesmc!

 

In first panic says that he refuses 10.6.4 and uses 10.6.3, something like that. After restart i also get panic, but this time it says something about fakesmc... And repeats that every time i restart...

 

Is there some other version of fakesmc that i can try?

 

Or can i just use Snow Leo 10.6.3 without update?

Hi

 

First thank you for this very simply but magnific guide

 

please excuse me for my english

 

I follow your guide step by step and i can install MacOS 10.6 perfectly

 

I configured my SATA whit ACHI

I follow this steps:

 

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 , AtiATA , Chameleon rc5 rev 300 , flag busratio=16 }

*Download it from here

*Retial snow Leopard 10.6.3 DVD from any source

I have got Retail 10.6.0

*Burn them under windows by poweriso[/b]

I made a USB FLASH image, in my macbook install perfectly with this

 

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

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

Nine minutes to complet install, i have an error, but reboot correctly

 

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

Here all perfect

 

After Setup

 

* Now we finish our work

*First download 10.6.4 update from apple

I downloaded 10.6.4 combo update from apple, because i install 10.6 and this combo can install directly from 10.6

*After Setup Dont restart

*Setup Chamelon RC4

And here is when i have problem, because Chamelon RC4 don´t install correctly, here i have error of installation

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

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

*before you reboot you must install FakeSMC.kext use Kext helper from here with latest Fakesmc 397

*Now you can Restart

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

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

 

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

 

 

I can have the error when I am installing 10.6 and 10.6.3 not directly?

I can have the 10.6.4 combo install error?

I can go to the next step if not installed Chamelon?

If not installed, I can always reboot from BootCD?, I have no problem with this

 

Thanks for all

Best regards

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

What is my boot.plist? is the same of bootCD in folder "Extra" com.apple.Boot.plist ?

 

after setup legacy_kernel, i have to do any thing manualy? , and as patch CPUID?

Hi,

 

Now, after install FakeSMC, before reboot computer, make a panic

 

say aprox

 

(some refusing) .... but say: already have loaded v10.0

refusing new kext com.apple.iokit.IOACPIFamyli, v1.3: a loaded copy with a different executable UUID is already present.

refusing new kext com.netkas.FakeSMC, v2.7.2: a loaded copy with a different executable is already present.

the kernel panic ocurred. We apologize for the inconvenience.

 

It is not valid version of FakeSMC with my hardware?

 

I´ve got:

MB MSI k9n2gm-fih

CPU AMD Phenom IIx4 955 black edition 2.6GHz

RAM 2x2GB

SATA Samsung 1TB

 

Thanks for all

 

Best regards

panic from fakesmc because of plugin on it

after restart it work fine

i will remove plugin from it

and upload it :D

 

this is fakesmc free from sensor plugins

 

Ok, Thanks, downloaded

 

I go to try again, because after reboot, make panic again, and i go to reinstall system again (i go for 17 or 18 reinstall jejejeje)

 

Know you if exist some way to remove the kext when make a panic? from terminal for example

 

Thanks

Thank you for all

Hello @ all, Hello Mohamed,

 

nice tut. Finally i've (you) made it possible to install OSX on my System. Everything is working fine. I even managed to get my HD5770 and the ALC888 working. Great job of yours. THx

 

Just one minor prob. In "About this mac" my CPU is only as 2,6 GHz Unknown and my RAM as 800 MHz DDR2 (i've got 1333 DDR3 installed) recognized. Is there a fix for that?

 

Regards,

 

Frank

Is this just cosmetic or does it change anything real? By now "About ..." shows my RAM as 1333 MHz DDR3 after using Lizard. Only my CPU is still a 2,6 GHz Unknown
