I was pissed when I read that ASEM were only going to support Snow Leopard on "v1.1 or newer"!!!!!

And that is IF they support it... More and more I agree with the other posting that said to install Chameleon and sell your efi-x... but this is my main machine now... I put way too much money in it...

So after several tests and researching, I thought I might try to do a clean install on a SATA drive I cleaned out.... Big mistake....!

I restarted my machine with the disc inside... the BIOS was all setup for the install... I selected the disc... and even before it tried to load the installer... it Kernel Panicked everywhere!

No biggy... restart and keep 10.5.8..., I told myself...

I select my MAC from the boot loader and it happened! The screen goes black and does not boot mac anymore...

I was never happier to see a Windows logo when I restarted to make sure my system was still working...

But even after repairing my permissions and whatnot, my system is pooped... I will try to reinstall 10.5 and see what happens... but a word of advice...

consider Chameleon or forking over another 200 bucks+ for a new EIFX...

:(

well from what it looks like v1.1 is just a new number on the box but once inside its looks just like v1 :). have a look @ http://www.efixusers.com/showthread.php?t=28 and http://www.efixusers.com/showthread.php?t=28&page=7. so maybe mr WD is a greedy ass and just wants everyone to give up more of green cash that he rolls in at night and makes sweet love to .

Hi Squishimac,

Is it possible to send me a link to the exact methiod you used to get snowl leopard to run on your system. I almost have the exact same specs except the ram & HD space. I've tried 2 different ways and didn't got as far as installing but not after the following boot. 1 time chameleon would freeze. I could use a 100% working method on installing snow leopard on this pc. Thank you for your help in advance.

M.P.

I used mikes Snow Leopard Guide it worked for me . Here is my entire Extra folder with my dsdt (i am running in x64) just make sure u edit the smbios.plist and PlatformUUID.kext and Replace my UUID with yours

The PDF in mikes SL guide helped me with my patching of the dsdt.

as for all the links i used.

Finally found the time to try SL. Have it up and running :D Never thought that it would be that easy. No kernel panic, nothing. It worked out of the box. First I made a combined Leopard/Snow Leopard Chameleon USB Stick. DSDT CMOS Fix. Ethernet and GFX is done automatic by Chameleon. Made a restore of the 10.6 Install DVD to a old HD. Boot from Chameleon USB Stick. Boot from 10.6 Installer HD. Installed SL to another HD. Reboot. Update to 10.6.1. Reboot. DONE:eek:
