Update to 10.6.6 Help

I recently updated to 10.6.6 from 10.6.5 and now when I boot I get a kernel panic. I know what the cause is, it is my Sleepenabler kext. I just don't know how to remove it without access to my mac partition. I have Windows 7 with MacDrive 8, but it keeps giving me errors when I try to delete it. As of this moment, I don't have an installer USB. Is there a way I can delete it without making another Installer USB stick? I forgot to mention that I have Chameleon RC5.

 

Thanks.

I can't access single user mode. I get to the Chameleon boot screen and when I click any of the boot options such as

Verbost

Ignore caches

Single User Mode

 

All result into me getting a Kernel Panic. I'm not sure how to delete the file.

Try booting with pmVersion=0

or pmVersion=21

I am going to make another install USB. Once I access the installer, what should I type into Terminal? My Chameleon boots from the EFI Partition. The Sleepenabler.kext is located there also. How do I boot with PMVersion=20? I only have the 3 or 4 options.

When Chameleon loads up just type pmVersion=21 and press enter.

Simple like that. :)

 

Cheers,

I have never done it, try searching for "remove kext in terminal". i assume it would be something like "rm -r /Volumes/partition_name/xxxxxx.kext"

Most versions of Chameleon you can hit the space bar and then type the command in, like "-v" for verbose or "-s" for single user

 

Strange how you get a kernel panic in single user mode. Do you use a vanilla or a patched kernel? How did you update from 10.6.5. to 10.6.6, software update or did you download and run the updater.

 

@breakingbad sorry did not see your post before I began typing

I run vanilla kernel, it whatever the non-patched kernel is. I just went to system update. My specs are in my signature.

 

I tested the following commands and they all led to the same Kernel Panic

PMVersion=20
PMVersion=20 -s
PMVersion=21
PMVersion=21 -s

 

My Kernel Panic is this. (I don't have a camera at the moment.)

I removed SleepEnabler.kext with the command

rm -r /Volumes/EFI/Extra/Extensions/SleepEnabler.kext.

 

I restarted and I still get the same Kernel Panic as the one above. I'm not sure what the problem is now.

I have the following kexts loaded, image is linked below.

Try removing the Extensions.mkext from the EFI partition

Also some people are having trouble with HDAEnabler with 10.6.6
