    Post So close Yet no Snow!

    HELP!
    Anyone know how i can fix this?
    I can install without problem, but on boot it shows this in verbose right before system restarts.

    Any advice would be awsome

    Hi,
    I don't suppose you have your 10.5.8 running anymore. If you do then it would be easier to install SL using retail DVD method.

    It's hard to tell the errors from that message. It's too early in booting process, so what is there may be caused by something else. But it looks like system incompatibility with kernel or missing files, or even just required bootflag for your system.

    Try some options like -x -v cpus=1 first to see.

    Then I would check the selections again, particularly patches and kernel.

    Cheers

    Yeh i do still have 10.5.8. By using retail SL will it still keep current bootloader,patches, drivers?
    Or do i upgrade then re run 10.5.7 and re install required patches etc?

    That would require SL to be installed to another partition while using your Leopard as installer.

    But you could try some boot options along with your custom selections to see. What kernel did you select for it?

    Glad to hear you got it
    Now it's close Well done.

    SL cache and extensions are more touchy and is different than Leopard. Yes, you do need to repair permission, etc.

    Use Kext Utility for those tasks. It'll do it all for you. From kexts.com.

    SL can run in either 32 bit or 64 bit mode, so depends on which mode you're running to pick up the kexts that work for it.

    Thank for coming back and let me know.
    Regards
