The system information its esthetic information, nothing is wrong there, SL is just not recognizing correctly your specs... it can be fixed by doing tweaks... i did it to my hackintosh to get all info show up correctly. could be kinda long.... but here we go:

1. Processor Name/Speed

- With these steps you will fix the information that show "about this mac" window:

a) go to System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindow (right click login window --> show contents) /Contents/Resources/English.lproj

B) there you will find there a file called AboutThisMac.strings, copy this file to your desktop, open it with text edit. once opened find a line that says:

"ABOUT_BOX_SINGLE_PROCESSOR_FIELD_FORMAT" = "PUT HERE THE INFO YOU WANT";

c) once you have edited the AboutThisMac.strings, put it back and replace it.

- With these steps you will fix the information shown on system profiler window:

a) go to system/Library/SystemProfiler look for a file called "SPPlatformReporter.spreporter" (right click SPPlatformReporter.spreporter --> show contents) /Contents/Resources/English.lproj

B) There you will find a file called "Localizable.strings", copy this file to your desktop, open it with text edit. once opened find a line that says:

copy and replace this lines:

cpu_type = "Processor Name";"Intel Core 2 Duo"="Intel? Core2 Duo CPU T7300";

current_processor_speed = "Processor Speed";"1.81 GHz"="2.00 GHz";

bus_speed = "Bus Speed";"725 MHz"="800 MHz";

c) once you have edited the "Localizable.strings", put it back and replace it.

2. Ram Frequency

-With these steps you will fix your Ram Frequency Mhz

a) go to System/Library/Extension/SMBiosResolver.kext (right click SMBiosResolver.kext --> show contents) Contents

B) you will find a file called "Info.Plist" copy this file to your desktop, open it with text edit. once opened find a line that says:

copy and replace this line.

<key>dimm-speed</key>

<string>677</string>

c) once you have edited the "Info.Plist", put it back and replace it. rebuild kext cache and restart.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the "errors" the only one to worry about its "FakeSMC", this kext controls the temperature reading of cpu and other components.

you can look around the download area for the latest version of FakeSMC and install it with kextUtility, if you need help with that let me know.

Hi!

If you use Chameleon RC2, you can add smbios.plist file into your /Extra/ folder. In this file you can "show'" your Mac OS:

- Mac Model

- Processor type and frequensy

- Memory type and frequensy

You can download attached file - it's for your configuration. If you interested what I changed in it and how to change it for another configuration - white here, I'll explane.

smbios.plist.zip

thank you very much

About com.apple.boot.plist - try to exclude these strings from it and look at results:

<key>SMBIOS</key>

<string>/extra/smbios.plist</string>

<key>SMBIOSdefaults</key>

<string>No</string>

because chameleon is using smbios.plist from /EXTRA/ folder by default.

How to write in smbios.plist "proper" settings(example):

...

<key>SMproductname</key>

<string>MacPro1,1</string> - here you can change MacModel (it's very important to chose correct MacModel for your HackPC, because it influences on test results and stability of MacOS)

...

<key>SMexternalclock</key>

<string>333</string> - write here your bus frequency devided by 4 (1333/4=333)

<key>SMmaximalclock</key>

<string>2660</string> - write here your processor frequency

<key>SMmemtype</key>

<string>19</string> - write here your memory type (DDR2 - 19, DDR3 - 20)

<key>SMmemspeed</key>

<string>800</string> - write here your memory frequency

...

<key>SMcputype</key>

<string>769</string> - write here your processor type (257 - Intel Core Solo, 769 - Intel Core 2 Duo, 1281 - Quad-Core Intel Xeon),for my E5200 DualCore Intel I use 769
