Combo Update 10.6.8 on G73SW

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I have been struggeling to get my Asus G73SW installed with the combo update 10.6.8. I have been reading across this forum and also on tonymac.

 

What I have is two separate disks in my laptop, one for MAC and one for windows, and carbon backups.

 

So what I have read in this forum is that I should clone the working partion and running into the clone, and from there install the combo update 10.6.8 into the other partion by changing the destination. But whatever I try, the installer it says "Volume does not meet the requirements.

 

I have tried this from 10.6.3 retail and from 10.6.7. Also tried to install this on a cloned external USB drive.

 

I have also tried the helper tool from kext.com but after the first stage, i get a reboot loop.

when you install 10.6.3, make 2 partitions, one about 50-100 gbs.

 

then install sl on main hard drive, after install and you boot into the main partition the first time, download carbon copy cloner.

 

clone main into the backup partition

 

then reboot into the backup partition

 

then do all the installing from there. you can go from 10.6.3 to 6.7 with out backing up, but 10.6.8 will give you KPs. So you must be in the backup partition to install 6.8.

 

tonymac has a thread the Jeff, plourde did, it explains it all , and all the packages you need.

Thank you. I have tried those guide and also yours. But I get stuck on the installer of 10.6.8. Running from the backup partition, and selecting the main partition give me the message that I cant install because the volume does not meet the requirements. I have a 80GB main partition, so the size should not be the issue I have.

 

It is really driving me crazy, and dont know what I have looked over...

When you partition your disk, make sure its GUID not MBR!!

Hi Jeff,

 

my main disk is GUID. Only the disk with the backup partition and my Windows partition is not. Should both disk be GUID?

Thats your problem,

 

Take out the windows drive, make the backup partition on the same drive as your mac install,

 

your laptop will recognize the main drive, automatic, afar you install mac, and put in your windows drive, if it recognizes the windows, drive, and want boot mac, just simply take out the windows drive, start pc with mac only drive, and then shutdown and install windows drive,

Hi Dfris,

 

I had take out the disk as you told me. So start from begin again. So what I have is one disk, with two Mac OS Ext Journaled partitions on GUID Partition Table, one with retail 10.6.3 on it and one with 10.6.7 on it. When running from 10.6.3 partition I still get the volume does not meet requirements when changing the destination in the combo installer. :huh:

 

See below the log from the installer.

That's weird, try going straight from 10.6.3 to 10.6.8! I never did 10.6.7 update.

Solved! I used my wrong installer DVD. Thought is was my 10.6.3 retail, but it was the old 10.6... :unsure:

 

Now trying to get booted.... cant boot into 10.6.8 due to KP at IOPCI and IOaudio...
