I've had my system up and running for a while using kakewalk, then I upgraded to 10.6.8 and lost audio. I tried using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to update the kext but I must have missed something and now it freezes at verifying DMI data pool. I tried reinstalling using kakewalk, it installs but after it reboots its still stuck at verifying DMI data pool. Any suggestions?

Then what are you going to do, leave it there for all eternity? It doesn't matter if you like it or not, XLR is right, that message is from your BIOS, it appears during motherboard POST, no operating system is loaded or has begun to load at that point.

 

As you can see from this page, your "Verifying DMI Pool Data" hang issue is older than Hackintoshes or Intel Macs. Even Wim's BIOS site has a page about it and that site is older than the Internet itself.

Do a "Load Setup defaults" or a CMOS reset. Remember to configure your BIOS the way it was.

Its not that i don't appreciate then help, what I don't understand is if its a BIOS issue then why can I boot from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]? Sure it takes forever what it works. And if its BIOS issue why did it occur after installing [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]? Oh and i tried loading from defaults as suggested, still doesn't work.

I can't help you with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], I have never used it, all I know is that it's some kind of post installation tool that is supposed to make things easy.

 

If you can still boot with a boot CD then I suggest you reinstall Chameleon to your hard drive (manually, don't use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] this time) and go over your /Extra/smbios.plist, /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist and the kernel extensions you keep in /Extra/Extensions.

 

If you can't do that, then I suggest you head on over to the TonyMacx86 forums, they made [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], they will know how to help you.

Solved....

 

reinstalled Chameleon but was still getting a kernel panic. Used Kext utility to determine which kext where installed by [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Rebuilt permissions. Everything seems to work now. Takes an extra few seconds but I can live with it.

 

Thanks Gringo for the help
