Totally Confused....

I tried following the details from this link step by step but have run into problems.

http://lifehacker.com/5360150/install-snow...acking-required

I don't think the EP45UD3p_Snow_Leo package works with my system hardware. I booted from the flash drive and installed OSX but when I went to restart it hung giving me the power off and restart screen.

 

My system:

ASUS P5E bios ver 1201

Q9450 2.66 oc @ 3.21ghz

8 gigs Corsair DDR2/1066

EVGA Ultra 8800/768

SATA HD/DVDs

 

I've set the bios to AHCI, disabled JMicron controller, not sure what else I'm missing?

I'm not familiar with terminal...I've tried to follow the instructions with no luck. I think when I installed 10.6.3 on the flash drive and loaded the Snow_Leo pkg...it messed up the install. I had previously Kalaway 10.5.1 loaded and it worked great. Is there any easier way to do this?? I don't really understand the kext thing...do they have to be loaded on the flash drive before the install or what? Has anyone had success with this http://heliacal.net/pmwiki/Main/SnowLeopar...tallationGuide2

Sorry...I'm a newbie when it comes to this...what are the exact steps I need to take when setting up the install flash drive and what needs to be loaded on it before the install?

 

Thanks for everyone's help before hand.....

You surely shouldn't use EP45T-UD3P files.

 

Make a "clean" install from a retail DVD using a boot CD ([url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], Empire EFI, ...), or from your Leopard installation (install to another partition, not on the same where Leopard is installed), or yet using an USB stick, you choose.

 

If you are new to this I recommend using myHack to generate the bootable USB.

After installing, use the kexts and DSDT patches from the link in my signature.

Only after installing to the HD. You will boot the installed system using the USB or boot CD, then you install the bootloader to the HD (can use myHack), the kexts from my signature, and patch your DSDT.

Will your hack install everything for me without having to use terminal?

Yes, it should.

 

The name is "myHack", but it's not mine :)

Sorry to ask this silly question...but where on the page do I download it??

I copied the install cd to the usb drive and have formated it correctly using all the steps...I can't seem to boot from the usb drive?? Did I need to install the hack to the flash drive before I restarted?? I'm only getting a flashing cursor on my screen now....

Yes, you need to do that...

Did I need to also install something else?

I'm getting something about Version mis-match between Kernel and CPU

and Kernel Extension in backtrace (with dependencies):

sk.triaxis.kext.SleepEnabler(1.0.0)

I didn't see the new pictures. Remove SleepEnabler.kext from USB (/Extra/Extensions).

Ok...I removed the sleep enabler from the usb....restarted...now I'm getting a window that says Mac OS X can't be installed on this computer. Restore from backup or restart

Are you using a restore DVD? (one that comes with a Mac)

 

You need a retail DVD to do this.

 

You can try replacing /System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg and /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/OSInstall with the ones from here

http://osx86.sojugarden.com/downloads/#osinstall

but I'm not sure it will work.

It depends on the version. I have one 10.6 and one 10.6.3 but they are not with me right now, can't tell how many folders or the size.

 

The important is that it's a retail disc (sold separately), not a restore one (comes with a Macintosh).

So...I need to replace those files on the usb drive with the ones I download?

It shouldn't be necessary if you are using a retail DVD and installing to a GPT disk.

 

If you are using a restore disc you can try that (pay attention to files version, I guess you should use 10.6.3 ones).

 

See post #18.

Would that have bootcamp on it? 10.6.3?

 

Would that have bootcamp on it? 10.6.3? Do I need a .dmg file or can I use the dvd to restore from?
