[HOW TO] Get working the 10.4.8 update with E6600/P5WDH/ATI RADEON X1950XTX

after 4x re-installs of the systems I finally got it to work, and i`ll tell you how it was done.


Like JaS said, you should start booting with arguments

-v -f -s -x


And then enter this command at the prompt:


mount -uw /
mv /system/library/exrensions/r2d2.kext /system/library/extensions
rm -rf /system/library/extensions.mkext
rm -rf /system/library/extensions.kextcache


Note: if I didn`t delete these last 2 files, when i booted with -x argument, the computer simply shut down. lol


now, reboot with -x argument to get into visual safe mode

- put osx86 dvd into the disc and then install the GMA900 package.

- open disk utility, repair permissions

- reboot


here`s the diff part, cuz i won`t work yet..


reboot in safe mode again with -x argument

- put os86 dvd and install the radeon x1600 package

- open disk utility and repair permissions

- reboot


and now, everything worked fine!


thanks, please tell me your experiences with same hardware.
