I'm not sure of the reason for this to happen but I have never tried to install this on anything other than the Intel DX58SO. I'm sorry I cannot be of more help, possibly somebody else could have an answer. If anybody knows of the cause of this or has solved this issue please reply to inform us all, Thankyou.

I get the same error. Hmmmm....I have almost same setup as juiceman. DX58SO, Geforce 9800GT, i7, 6 gb ram. I can run iatkos 10.5.5 off secondary drive mostly fine (sleep problems, audio).

Also, he didn't say, but if you are using EFI scheme, would you not have to have UEFI enabled in DX58SO motherboard boot options?
So there is no one can help us pls, we follow all and got that problem help us , please, i uninstall windows 7 with all thing i had just for put snow leopard , i wouldnt like i did that for nothing, please help me
I played around a little more. When I follow Juicemans guide, specifically choosing the EFI (option 2), I get the boot errors, which means the bootloader wasn't found.
Using the other scheme, /extra, I can get chameleon 2.0 to start. The apple.plist has the -v setting, verbose obviously, and things seem alright, until the end, and a kernal panic occurs. Not enough info on the screen to figure out what is the problem.
My next step was to remove all kexts from the /extra/Storedkexts - (note, this is a different path than what the digital tutorial indicated), to no avail.
So, more tinkering around. Maybe its the kernal, etc. Frustrating as my board & peripherals are identical to what juice stated he had. Maybe a plist needs to be edited, or some as yet BIOS flag.
Fortunately, I have a real Mac pro. I just wanted another mac station and thought the intel motherboard would be best. Im thinking now the gigabyte stuff would be better.
Im curious as to what the MOBO patch does????
its not a bios or anything is it
i mainly use my PC as a PC with windows 7... but im currious to try OSX
if you could give me some info on what exactly the mobo patch does plz
Thx for the Guide, but....
I am also getting the:
I have tried both of the efi loaders, am going to see if upgrading to Chameleon RC4 makes a difference..
Rig: DX58so, i7 920, CORSAIR TR3X3G1333C9 XMS3 3GB, XFX GeForce 880GT 512 Alpha Dog.
I would just like to thank juiceman for this totally working method!
My only different was a 8800GT video card, but this tutorial works <almost> out of the box!
I was getting the same booting errors as everyone else, but figured that it was just something wrong with the script in the bootloader section. Here is what I did:
(starting on an existing 10.5.7 system and loading on to another hard drive in my system)
-Download both Chameleon RC2 (installer) and RC4 (binaries) from the chameleon website.
-Partition disk, GUID.
-I disabled Spotlight indexing for that drive, but you do not have to
-Use RC2 installer to install, deselecting all kexts.
-Following instructions in RC4 readme file, just copy the boot file in the i386 directory onto the main root directory of the drive you will be using for SL. For me, this was already mounted at /Volumes/SnowLeo/.
-sudo chmod 755 /Volumes/SnowLeo/boot
-sudo chown root:wheel /Volumes/SnowLeo/boot
-Run the script, but do not choose the automated option. Skip numbers 1,2,3 and just do manually 4,5,6,7
-Reboot, then keep following instructions on OSX86Tools to make graphics card run more smoothly......that first boot, though, had sound and ethernet working just fine, booted right into 64-bit kernel as well! w00T!
Post back if that works for you!
I have my system booting with OS X on a DX58SO. I only have 3 issues left I can't figure out and I was hoping someone here can give me some advice.
1) Audio doesn't work after sleep
2) LAN doesnt work after sleep
3) Sleep works fine, shutdown will actually restart the machine.
These are the final issues until my system is 100%. I am more concerned with the audio and lan issues. Juiceman or anyone else have any input? Or does anyone have the name of the correct kext I need to install.
Thanks in advance everyone!
Ethernet and sound not working with Chameleon
I just went through the whole guide with the following options/steps:
1. Chose to install with EFI
2. Chose Chameleon RC2 bootloader
3. Installed SL with not optional installs
4. Ran kext installer (changed all installs to system [extra does not work])**Could not run installer because it said Chameleon was not installed so there was no /Extra folder**
5. Ran DSDT
6. Rebooted and used boot132 disc to get back into OSX (the initial one, not the one that I just installed)
7. Ran Chameleon bootloader again (successful)
8. Ran kext installer (changed to /system) (successful)
9. Re-ran DSDT just in case
10. Left boot132 disc in drive, booted to NEW SL drive (audio and ethernet work)
11. Take out boot132 disc, use Chameleon bootloader that was installed from patch...ethernet and audio do not work, but video resolution is good.
***The only thing I forgot to do was change cores to "1" and turn hyperthreading off***
Would that effect the bootloader not loading ethernet or audio? How can I fix this?
-I just re-installed Windows 7 on my other HDD so I prefer not to have to format the Windows drive and install SL on it so I can then install it on the drive that I want SL on.
