Panic from SleepEnabler


8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

For the last couple days I've been trying to install Snow Leopard onto my machine and have run into a few different errors. Most of them I've been able to solve with a bit of research and trial and error.


I've been able to get into the install setup and moved onto DISK UTILITY. I have a 1T internal HD that I've formatted a couple different ways. As Mac OS Extended(Journaled) with two partitions and the second time as one giant partition. The two partition thing was an attempt to get a dual boot with Windows7, but I've moved past that idea.


So it seems to be all formatted and ready to go. I select my 953gig HD as the destination folder and it starts copying! (side note: I didn't go through the customizing options for the install)


I get to the INSTALL SUCCESS screen and the computer reboots to come back with:


System config file '/com.apple.Boot.plist' not found


If I put [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] back into the machine and try to launch the Mac OS I get the screen included on the attached image.




The first line goes along the lines of: snow leopard version mis-match between kernel and cpu


I've heard a few different things surrounding the first error code but nothing specific about when it occurs and what the options are.


I've heard that i have to format and prepare the drive in 10.4.3 and then install 10.4.4.


I've heard that the OS partition isn't active and that I have to remove all the PCI devices.


Does anybody have any thoughts on this issue?


My specs:


MSI H55M-P31

Intel i5

4gigs of ram

Take a look at the line just after "Kernel Extension in backtrace". You'll notice that it's SleepEnabler that is causing the panic. Boot up into single user mode and remove the kext and try again. SleepEnabler is version specific. So as netkas says: "sleepenabler + new kernel = panic". You can take a look here on how to remove it: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...95#entry1328660




EDIT: Why would you have to use 10.4? 10.4 is Tiger...

10.4.4 was released January 10, 2006.

It was in fact the first OS X release I ever used.


I'm almost at the point where I'm wondering if anybody ever got this to work. I have never used a kext, but will go through the little tutorial in the previous post.


Can I just put them on a usb stick or something?

Why not? But it seems that your problem is deleting one. MacDrive is the easiest solution.

Or you could use Linux, but that is more complicated.


Yeah, I've decided to go the MacDrive route, however that's opened a whole other problem.


I installed Windows7 for the dual boot and that's all good, but when I go into Mac's Disk Utilities it won't let me format the section I left open the the Mac OS into the MS-DOS File System, only the two windows options.
