Error during 10.6.8 combo update - From hazard 10.6.2

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I installed hazard 10.6.2 and after some days I made it works.

Now I'd like to update to 10.6.8 because a lot of applications work only for 10.6.8 and I'd like to have Mac App Store.

I tried updating from Software Update, but before it finished to install (I think when it was saying "Moving files to right place" or something like that), it gave me a kernel panic, I've attached a picture.

After, when I rebooted, it stucked at apple logo without the moving circle, or if boots with -v black screen before apple logo.

Now I've reinstalled 10.6.2: how could I update proprely?


Sorry for my bad English.

Thank you in advance!

Ciao Matteo,

non vorrei sbagliarmi, ma hazard dovrebbe usare un kernel patchato, pertanto se è così ti conviene innanzitutto procurarti un kernel patchato per 10.6.8 e scaricare il combo update (cerca con google).

Altra cosa da fare, eliminare voodoohda (se c'è) prima dell'update, causa conflitto con applehda; fai una lista dei kext che hai aggiunto per far funzionare Snow, una volta finito l'update non riavviare ma reinstalla i kext (che vengono sovrascritti dall'update).

Solo a questo punto incrocia le dita e riavvia.


Translated in English:

P.S. sarebbe buona cosa che mettessi in firma il tuo hardware, ho capito solo dalla foto del panic che è un portatile HP... ma che modello?


I would not be wrong, but hazard should use a patched kernel, so if so you should first get a patched kernel for 10.6.8 and download the combo update (google search).

Another thing to do, delete VoodooHDA (if any) before the update, cause a conflict with applehda, make a list of the kext you've added to run Snow, once finished the update but do not restart reinstall the kext (which overwritten by Update).

Only then cross your fingers and reboot.


P.S. would be a good thing that I put in your signature hardware, I realized the only photo of the panic which is a HP laptop ... but which model?


Sorry for my terrible English

Sono italiano XD Ho scritto in inglese perchè qui si parla inglese...


Anyway, no I haven't, but if there was a 10.6.8 installation it would be great! I tried 10.6.6i but DVD doesn't boot: it's stuck on "Still waiting for root device"
