Laptop won't boot after upgrade to 10.6.8
I've been trying to install Snow Leopard on my laptop (and plan to upgrade to Lion afterwards), but I've hit a wall during the last step of tonymacx86's guide.
Right after the Snow Leopard installation, before upgrading and running MultiBeast, I've had to use the "cpus=1" flag to boot into leopard-- this would work every time-- but after the upgrade and MultiBeast installation it would show the apple logo and never boot.
Now, after running it in verbose mode I was able to notice that it would always pause at...
...and never continue. Here's a video I've recorded.
ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out
I've tried running the thing with or without the "cpus=1" flag, the "-x" flag, the "-f" flag, every combination of the three I can think of, retrying the above from iBoot, and reinstalling multiple times (all while using the verbose tag, of course) but I would always get the same result.
If anyone has any ideas as to how I can get this working I would really appreciate the assistance. I'm a little enthusiastic about this and I'll do anything to get this working short of dissecting my laptop. I can't boot into my Snow Leopard installation, but I can still access and manipulate my HDD with both my Snow Leopard installation disk and my Fedora 15 live CD.
As for my laptop's hardware, all I know is the information I've managed to obtain using the Smolt Application from my live CD (click here to see that) and the fact that it is an unmodified Toshiba Satellite L655-S5096.
