    Hi Testudo,

    I received your PM and I will send the files shortly. When you receive them you will need to extract the files and then burn the ISO disk image to CD. This is what you will use to boot the Snow Leopard installation DVD and to install the working configuration files to your new Snow Leopard partition.

    The kernel is the very heart of an operating system and it is what Chameleon will load when it goes to start your Snow Leopard install.

    A Kext is similar in function to a "driver" in the Windows world. The package that is part of the disk image that I will send you installs all of the necessary kexts that you need to make your system operate.

    Alright, I ran into a problem right away. I get an error when trying to boot the 1.13 cd. It says:
    ISOLINUX 3.84 ETCDisolinux: Image checksum error, sorry...
    Boot failed: press a key to retry

    Try burning the ISO very slowly, like at 4x speed.

    I tried it and I get the same error. If I try booting from the CDROM, I get a BOOTMGR is missing error. I erased my second HDD and formatted it with NFTS. Is that alright? I mean, could that be causing this problem?

    I just burnt the same ISO that I sent you and booted my laptop with it, no problem. The fact that it says checksum error makes me think that something got corrupted somewhere. I am not sure what else to tell you to do. Why not try and download a fresh copy from the InsanelyMac site.

    This procedure is for a P6T Deluxe V1 or V2 - is this the same type of mobo that you have or is yours just a straight P6T. If so, then you will need to do something different, here is a step by step guide from a guy on the TonyMac site:

    http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=15268

    Formatting the drive with NTFS will not make a difference at the moment (eventually it would need to be formatted for Mac OS X using HFS+). You should (and need to be able) to boot from CD first. You also need to look at my comment regarding the exact type of mobo that you have. If it is a straight P6T, then we need to stop right now as this will not work with that board.

    Alright, I think I made some progress. I have to use iBoot because I cannot get the 1.32 to work. The only problem now is that I get to the Apple logo screen and the spinning pinwheel and that is where it is frozen solid. I used the -x and the PCIRootUID=1 routes, but it is still stuck at that screen.

    Yeah, I have a straight up P6T.

    The "straight up P6T" means that you will need to follow another procedure, as per the link I provided. The reason is because the DSDT file that is used to pass mobo information to the operating system is very unique to each board. Every Snow Leopard install on a Hackintosh requires a DSDT to operate properly, it basically tells the OS about the components on your board and how to use them correctly. The ones that we were trying to use would not work for you.

    I would suggest that you get familiar with the thread over on the TonyMac site and ask some questions of the author of the guide. I saw that one of the moderator's of that board was also stepping into the conversation, so that is a good things as some of those guys have a load of experience.

    I am sorry that we could not make this work for you.

    Regards

    Spike

    That's cool. That is the route that I started taking. I really appreciate your time and your help. \

    Take care,
