Help me instal snow leopard 10.6.1-10.6.2 HP HDX-9010NR
I downloaded snow leopard 10.6.1-10.6.2 sse2 sse3 intel amd by hazard.rar and extracted it. I burned the .iso onto a DVD.
1 - Powered on the laptop
2 - This appeared in the upper left corner of the screen
Darwin/x86 boot v5.0.132
VESA v3.0 16MB (ATI ATOMBIOS)
Press any key to boot from cd-rom
i press a button to boot from said disk image
3 - it loads ok and asks what language to use
i select English
4 - Welcome to the Max OS X Installer
i select continue
5 - Must accept software agreement, says whats part of hazards install package
i select agree
6 - Select Destination
i go under utilities/disk utilities
volume format - Mac OS Extended
click on erase
7 - setup a 40gb partition
8 - Install's Snow Leopard fine but has errors when its trying to shut down after clicking on the restart.
9 - When it reboots i get the error message: System config file '/com.apple.boot.plist' not found
I booted off the disk again and choose the snow leopard install as the startup disk but that did help.
Any ideas? Is this the part where i have to keep booting off of the cd and go into terminal and issue commands to clean things up?
with i hit F8 and use the -v command to boot, i notice that there are 14 major and like 4 minor errors.
Thx in advance and im a super mac newb so please work with me here
Heres a link to my other post with my pc specs and background : http://www.hackint0sh.org/f213/121957.htm
check your partition: Mac OSX extended journaled
you should click customize before install. (i think that is why error install came up)
choose the update, the bootloader pci v10.5, the drivers, the system support, laptop support, and than reboot .
when chameleon come up showing your hd, press space, type -x32 cpus=1 -f -v.
nvm ima noob and after being up for over 30 hours i guess i missed that tab... lol thx for the help

Still not able to load snow leopard... If i do not hit space bar the loader just goes to a message that says to hold down power button and restart. If i hit space and type -x32 cpus=1 -f -v or -x32 -f -v it goes through quite a few lines of code and stops with code, o/s. What do i need to look at to find the problem?
get your bios setting for ACPI enabled,SATA set to AHCI.
try this option check: (omit the rest...(?))
MAC OS X 10.6.2
Chameleon RC3 pci efi 10.5
Graphics: ATI HD 2600
AUDIO: try Alc888b or HDAenable/legacyhda.
Network: -->download, may be this one here
System Support:CMOS fix, SATA fix, SMBIOSResolver, UUID.
install,restart, -x32 cpus=1 -f -s, post the image here..GL
would you mind explaining to me what each of those commands do?
i would assuse the x32 is 32 bit mode for processor or os?
tell the os it has 1 cpu? what about dual core, does that matter?
no clue on the -f or -s
i reinstalled the o/s using the options 10.3 bootloader instead of 10.5. Cant remember if i tried the 2 updates to 10.6.2. And only ATI 2600 with the one under it. It seems like it makes it farther on the apple screen before it tells me to hold down power to restart. heres a screenshot when i do the advanced startup with -x32 cpus=1 -f -s
this bootloader also ask's me if i need to enter stuff before booting
this one is after i type exit
-s = Single user mode. Command line only mode. Allows you to run commands as root to fix system.
-f = Tells the machine to reload all kext and dump the boot configuration cache, (kext cache found in: /System/Library/Extensions.mkext, you can delete it manually and the system will recreate it.)
-v = verbose mode. Basically tells you wants happening during boot up.
cpus= Tells the kernel how many cores there are in place. Ex: cpus=1 OR cpus=2 .This can be omitted once you got your machine configured.
-x32 = boot the system in 32 mode.Some kexts need this to load properly.
great progress, you have made it to the safe boot mode.
now you can type those 2 lines of /sbin/...one by one .
run permissions change:
sudo chown -R 0:0 /
sudo chmod -R 755 /
next delete that problem kexts :
rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleTyMCEDriver.kext
rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/ElliotForceLegacyRTC.kext
make kext cache:
kextcache -m /System/Library/Extensions.mkext System/Library/Extensions
sudo kextcache -a i386 -m /Extra/Extensions.mkext /Extra/Extensions
and than type the first 2 lines again../sbin/...
boot with -x32 -f -v
sudo chown -R 0:0 /
well after i typed that command, its been scrolling for about 15 minutes now and still going strong. is that normal? will it ever stop lol? does that go through every file on the hard drive?
when you say to type the 2 commands again at the end /sbin ones , do i reverse them at the end or the same order as the first time at the start?
ps will these files ever stop scrolling? lol...
i'm wondering if i should try this with a retail copy and boot with empire efi... would this method be faster/better/work?
sorry about the long scroll,..i forget to type the name of the folder.
next time for quicker you have to type more:
sudo chown -R 0:0 /System/Library/Extensions
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions
sudo chown -R 0:0 /Extra/Extensions
sudo chmod -R 755 /Extra/Extensions
Empire efi will help you boot the retail disc , but it dont have kexts customizing,
but it's all the same. It is always hard at first, once you get every driver/kext right, you can always do a retail install by keeping the kext.
Managing the Extra folder is important.it is where most of the patch goes..
so, got the screen yet?
