    Default Upgrade/Change Processor

    my hackintosh specs :
    MB = intel DG31PR
    Current Processor = Intel C2D E7200
    Memory = 4 GB
    OS = Snow Leopard
    Status = working great for almost a year, before i used Leopard.

    Now i have Intel C2 Quad Q8300 and intending to upgrade my hackintosh mention above... when i tried it cant pass snow leopard booting process, it not shown 'kernel panic' but something repeating "BSD xx xxx xxx..."

    and because i have another hdd, i tried installing fresh snow leopard on it the way i did before..(using DellSnow Boot v.5 and retail DVD) but i got kernel panic.

    please help me.. and thanks

    Default Snow from dual core to quad core on P5E

    Hi,

    same problem here. Snow works with C2D 8400 but doesn't boot with Q8300 (kernel panic uptime = 0).

    found any solution ?

    thanks

    Those two C2D 8300 and 8400 CPU's are almost identical except multiplier.
    After switching CPU, have you try to clear all caches, system/startup, permission?

    i meant Core 2 Duo E8400 and Core 2 Quad Q8300.
    BIOS says 1 processor for first one and 2 processors for the second

    Default quad core and Limit CPUID

    i solved my problem.

    it was because of Limit CPUID enabled in BIOS.
    Linux and Windows don't care but OSX does ...
    I have now 4 cores instead of 2 processor at boot and OSX works fine.
