    Default Help with iPortable Snow X86, system just shutdsown

    Help me please,

    I already has a hackintosh 10.5.7 running on my PC (ECS P945) but now I want a 10.6.2 running on it, so I followed the procedure to get iPortable Snow X86 running from my usb flash (16 Gb).
    I can boot from it and get the Darwin Boot loader where I can set the kernel and bootflags, I tried them all, but everytime when it has loaded all the kext files and boots to the new window (logo of Chameleon in centre of screen), my system just shutdowns . With the bootflag -v it's even to fast reading what the last line says when it shutsdown.

    Do you, guys have a suggestion.

    TIA

    Frank

    Hi there,
    What version is your iPortable? And you said that you follow procedure correctly? What kernel are you using for what chipsets/cpu?
    May need more information for assistance.
    Regards,

    Hello,
    Here some extra info:
    iPortable Snow X86 (no version number but it contains the 10.6.2 which I have to clone to my (USB) drive with copycatX)
    I used the chocolate_kernel (default), anv_kernel, legacy_kernel, blacknight_kernel & the mach_kernel.
    I used bootflags -x -v -f -F and even a -s to do a repair kextpermission, as noticed in the manual.
    My PC (ECS P965-T) 6 gigs of Ram and CPU Intel Core 2 Quad (Q6600) 2.40 Ghz FSB 1066 Mhz.

    TIA

    Frank

    Hi,
    It looks like your CPU could run vanilla.
    Since it's not booting, I assume that you did not get the DSDT file.
    What you could try is booting your exsiting 10.5.7 up, having that USB there, and run the DSDT patcher for your iPortabe to your USB volume before reboot to SL.
    Keep your boot options at
    -x -v -f
    And if needed add: cpus=1 or 4 and busratio=20 (or your real busratio)

    Try it and let us know.
    Regards,

    Hello ratvn,

    Thanks for your reply.
    I tried the DSDT patch twice,
    first only with apply DSDT patch to ....(my USB),
    Rebooted: mach_kernel -x -v -f (Same problem, for what I can read it's telling the the system is getting shutdown, and then it does!
    second try, I patched DSDT with the extra option New HPET checked on and aplied it too to my USB. I got the same result.
    I also tried the bootflags with the extra options, but I think I did not typed it in the correct way.
    (example: mach_kernel -x -v -f cpu=4 busratio=20) did I misspelled it somewhere or in the wrong order?

    It's getting late now (midnight) and I have to get up early for work, so hopefully you have some more extended options for me. Thank you in advange.

    Gr.

    Frank

    Hi,
    I think you could try just the chocolate for now (default/no need to specify at boot prompt).
    So boot option -x -v
    If still got shutdown then add in cpus=1 or 4 (and/or busratio) see if it goes any further.
    If nothing is working out, then you may want to try a SL distro, Universal v3.6 or hazard or retail DVD (a bit more involved but since you already have OSX it could be done), and install it to your USB.
    Regards,
