thanks kyndder, for tutorial. I got as far as part 8, where it gets stuck at the last line, and wont proceed any further. I think my disk maybe faulty, so i have ordered a new one, which will arrive wednesday, $39.00 in australia.I have decided to do a dual boot, snow leopard and windows 7 on the same disk. Do i need a different tutorial, or will this one work.
thanks for your help.

Try to install Chameleon again using Chameleon Wizard and "Boot0hfs" option...

After the boot loader installation, go to the org.chameleon.Boot tab, select the options that you see on the picture below and save inside of your /Extra folder...

Go to the SMBios tab, set a SMBios of a MacBook6,1 and save inside of your /Extra folder...

"Don`t Reboot"

Download and install the Combo Update 10.6.8 from Apple`s website and also "Don`t Reboot"...

Install Legacy Kernel 10.6.8 and reboot > http://www.osx86.net...for_10.6.r.html

Try booting from HDD using the flags -f -v ...

Hello Kyndder,
my problem is i open chameleon wizard, select bootohfs, then click install,then i get error couldnt download file, check internet connection.in the internet i get the error Ethernet has self-assigned IP address and wont connect. is there a way of installing chameleon wizard,without internet. i download the file and put on portable hard drive, but when click install at bottom of program it wants to go to internet. I have read quite alot of ways of how to get net running with ethernet, wireless would be better, but tested lots of ways and still get same error. Hope u know the answer to this one. Thanks

Download this Chameleon Wizard > Chameleon Wizard 4.0 - Downloads - OSx86.net

And use the "BuiltIn" option instead of "Buildbot"...

Hello Kyndder,
the pc booted properly after using chameleon wizard 4. I dont have audio, internet, and not sure if graphic card is reconised. i followed the instructions for the audio, but after installing multibeast , my computer locked up with white writing over the screen. as i printed out the guide, i completely started again, have installed combo update. how do i test graphic card, and get audio working, as when i used multibeast most of the errors were to do with this pc not being an intel machine. I use a dlink wireless router for internet, cant seem to get ethernet cable to work. once everything is working would i be able to upgrade to lion, or stay on snow leopard. Thanks for your help.
