I have a Pentium D820 so I have to use the "legacy kernel" but I can not find any information about how to install or use or copy etc...

 

I will boot with a bootloader Legacy then what's the next step?? Should I install the update 10.6.8 combo first Or legacy kernel? Or should I run ###### first? I'm quite confused, can anyone tell me step by step, which one is first that I should install and which ###### and legacy kernel releases I have to use??

 

Thanks.

For information about running and maintaining OS X with a patched kernel, study this topic: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=209192

 

Note that since there will be no more kernels for Snow Leopard, once you're on 10.6.8 and using an appropriate legacy (Voodoo-based) kernel you can just leave it named mach_kernel. Also, don't download any kernels from that topic, they are for 10.5.x - but all the basic principles still apply to Voodoo based kernels on 10.6.x, including what's written in the Voodoo Kernel manual, which you should definitely read.

I installed the match_kernel 10.8 for 10.6.8, but when I check which kernel I have it says 10.4. Is there a way to fix this. I have snow leopard working properly on 10.6.8, but it says the kernel version is 10.4.

I'm also trying to figure out how to get Intel ® HD Graphics optimized for my hackintosh.

it's mach_kernel, not match_kernel. If you named it match_kernel that's the reason why it isn't loading. It's important to pay attention to "little" things like correct spelling with these things.

 

Check your /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist (com.apple.Boot.plist if you're using an older version of Chameleon) and verify that it's not set to load a different kernel. Enable view of hidden files (google/forum search to find out how) and look at the root of your hard drive for other kernels.
