Okay. I apologize if my last thread was a little hard to follow, now that I've actually done all of the steps I understand a little better what's going on here.


What I have done so far:

Installed 10.6.0 with Boot 132 and my Retail 10.6.0 DVD

Installed a 32-bit kext and boot.plist package put together by the guy who made this HCL entry.

Updated to 10.6.6 through combo and single-step updaters

Installed Chameleon RC5- r643


What's working?

Trackpad is not bugging out, I have sound, I'm able to install and run the USB WiFi adapter I purchased, all seems to be well except for:


What's not working?

QE. I have been hesitant to try NVEnabler, natit, nvinject/nvinjectGo on this installation because according to the HCL entry I have followed, QE should work natively and does not require anything after I've bumped it up to 10.6.6.

I am willing to try other kext packages, nvinject, etcetera, I did back up my extensions folder before installing the kexts that this HCL entry author provided so if worse comes to worse I should be able to revert back. I tried natit/nvinject and others on previous installations with no success.


If I use the iHack package he recommended, I get kernel panic on normal booting and in safe mode.


I have already spent 10+ hours trying to do this "solo," without any assistance, pure trial and error and I could really use a hand here. Thanks in advance! Do let me know if you need any additional information.
