Semthex kernel does not boot

Merry Christmas y'all!


OK so I installed 10.4.6 JAS DVD then the 10.4.8 Jas update SSE3 options in both cases.



Now when I try and update the kernel to semthex's new kernel, the computer hangs at the Grey apple logo screen. It shows a little no entry sign then hangs.


When I tried booting up with "-v" option, it says several files are missing eg. com.apple.....etc


Do I need to do more than just update the kernel file?



Thanks in Advance!

The JaS Combo SSE3 update is for the old kernel.


When you want to update to the new kernel, you still need some files from the Apple update.


Follow the 10.4.8 link in my signature for ways to update to 10.4.8 with the new kernel.

Just to be absolutely sure I know what I'm about to do is right:


Following Paulicat's Method:


Install 10.4.6

Install Apple 10.4.8 Combo update


REPLACE specified files: AppleSMBIOS.kext, IOATAFamily.kext

Install SEMTHEX kernel

Repair permissions
