    Default ASUS M2N-E 10.6.2 Installation problems

    So I have the motherboard in the title, and I followed the HCL 10.6.2 which is here:
    HCL 10.6.2 - OSx86
    And it says:
    Used [Intel/AMD] Snow Leopard 10.6.1-10.6.2 SSE2-SSE3 Intel/AMD by Hazard

    * Installation method: from Mac Os X 10.5.8 on separate HDD
    * CPU: AMD Athlon64 x2 4600+, used newest 10.2 "legacy_kernel"
    * SATA: Works with IOATAFamily_SATA_Fix.kext
    * IDE: Works with IOATAFamily_Fix.kext
    * LAN: Works
    * Audio: Needs AppleAzalia and HDAEnabler kexts. Which one works I don't know, but it works.
    * USB: Works
    * Video: nVidia 7300GT works with NVEnabler
    * Additional choose AMD and dont choose bootloader
    * CMOS: LegacyAppleRTC

    I did use the disc they said to get, and I clicked Customize and clicked on the optional kexts to use during installation. First attempt I got a kernal panic as shown in the picture below. I don't know why I got that kernal panic but I'm constantly trying to install trying different kexts in the Customize menu before installing while booted off the disc. And since I am obviously installing OS X multiple times, I cannot erase the HDD which I think i need to do, do I? because it says "install failed" if I don't.


    I am wondering, do I need to install by: "Mac Os X 10.5.8 on separate HDD" like it says? if so, how do I do that?. Thanks in advance everyone.

    Your question seems very funny

    You post a mini-guide for OSX.
    Your installation failed because you did not follow the exact method.
    Why the person did it that way is hard to answer.

    Thanks . I did follow it almost exactly the first attempt in installing. It did not work because I didn't understand what you were talking about, that it's hard to answer why he did it that way. I think, from the research I've done so far is MAYBE he was successfully able to install 10.5.7 and upgrade to 10.5.8, THEN install 10.6.2 through just upgrading, I am not sure yet but it seems he installed from a current install of 10.5.8, the iATKOS v7 is used in the HCL for my motherboard and can be installed right from the disc for 10.5.7 where 10.6.2 for my mobo is installed "from a secondary hard drive". That's just a theory, I am going to use iAtkos v7 and install to see if that works, and keep experimenting from there. Harder than I thought for something I thought was so simple. If anyone has had any success with an M2N-E PLEASE contact me, or reply to this thread, any suggestions are more than welcome.

    If you have Leopard running then you could just do a retail DVD installation for SL.

    It could be simple and depend on what chipsets/CPU you have on your board as NV nForce sometimes are limited.

    Intel seems to have more support obviously, and you mean using a regular retail disc installation? what is "SL"?. Someone has done this before with this board, so it's got to be possible, how is the question.

    You really got me confused.

    How is not the question as there are several methods for different hardware configurations. You haven't post your chipsets and CPU so there is not much help that I can offer, even though I already mentioned. All I know is you have an AMD cpu, your chipsets is nForce series and the installation would be depended on the model series and which version of OSX that you want to install.

    FYI, if you've not got enough information, SL = Snow Leopard=10.6.X (can run in either 32 or 64 bit), and it's not the same as Leopard=10.5.X, 32 bit mode only.

    That is why on the guide they mentioned using 10.5.8 Leopard to install SL 10.6.2. And yes, you could use Apple retail DVD for installation onto your AMD system as there are only a handful of additional system/driver files.

    Hope these would clear things up for you.
