Here are the kernel panics. I couldn't get a photo to come out well, so I typed them out. They're easier to read this way, though I suppose a true nerd would edit them so they're in a fixed width font on a black background.

Thank you very much for offering to help. One of the most important reasons I bought this particular laptop was the high level of support offered by everyone on this thread. If it wasn't for you guys I would have no choice but to pay twice as much money for a very used Macbook or convert to The Dark Side.

I currently have Windows 7 installed on the laptop. iBoot recognizes it as an operating system, and I can boot into Windows through iBoot. My plan was to get OS X to the point where I could start up from the DVD, reformat and partition the hard drive, and then install OS X and Windows 7 on separate partitions. I've been following Tonymac's guide for installing OS X with iBoot and Multibeast. Anyhow, when I try to use the OS X DVD or to boot directly from iBoot, here are the kernel panics I get:

Using iBoot Legacy
In -v mode, attempting to boot directly from iBoot Legacy disc and attempting to boot with the 0S X 10.6.3 DVD produce the same kernel panic.
When the bootloader is open, the upper right hand corner says:

This kernel panic is almost identical to the previous one. I italicized the differences so you don't have to wade through all of it.

New iBoot attempting to boot with OSX 10.6.3 disc produces almost the same kernel panic. Bold lines are different.

Now I am back to using my original CPU, I am able to use my original Kexts - so I use FakeSMC, not evoreboot.

I have been having a few issues with KP's myself. I having been reading through the thread about the DSDT mods for the Alienware laptops, and am trying to take a stab at adding P-states to my old T7500 DSDT as my geek bench score has dropped again. I used the VoodooPstate kext and got my P-states from PStateChanger.

I have patched my HPET but am still getting a panic stating that there is no HPET.. I have also patched my TMR and RTC... I tried SMBIOS 5,1 and 6,1 with same result.. also, I noticed that I appear to have 2 x Scope \_SB, one at the top and one at the bottom.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you so much ellnic. I've been struggling for 4 days with getting 10.6.8 to work properly. Following your simple guide after jumping through hoops on more complicated tutorials did the trick on my Gateway M-6827 Notebook. Just one hiccup; when attempting to download Safari 5.1, got a message saying the computer wasn't connected to a power source. Both 110v and battery are working properly. That's a new one for me. Now to tackle the Lion.

I just like to report my success with my Inspiron 1720 with intel 965 chipset and graphics, T5750, Broadcom wireless and 4GB mushkin memory. 10.6.8 up and running flawlessly except I haven't tested sleep yet. Strange that the drivers just stop working when you update. I installed originally from a 10.6.3 retail disc and everything was working without modifications then (except boot of course). But you guys saved me alot of head scratching time, keep up the excellent work :thumbup:

ok, I just got a 1520 and I try to install SL again on it for a friend ( together with XP).
The standard installation with iBoot and Multibeast was ok, but strangely after first reboot no USB stick is recognized ( USB mouse works) . I dont use DSDT, I already rolled back USB but nothing happens.

Hi ellnic,


Would it be possible for you to send me a breakdown of your Dell 1720 Snow Leopard install.

I have the Dell 1720 that is an awesome machine but I have been trying to install Snow Leopard on for a while, it is a standard Dell 1720 apart from the processor that I have upgraded, (see below).

The processor has been upgraded to an Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 2.40GHz.

6 GB ram.

Plus I have a genuine Snow Leopard OS X 10.6.3 install dvd.

I have tried several boot options but as of yet cant get past the white screen hang up.

I am attempting to install to a HGST 500gb 7200rpm sata hard drive.

I would be very grateful if you could help me with this, if you require ant further information, please email me and I will do my best to answer the what you need.

I am pretty much ok with computer builds, but I have been baffled with some of the things I have seen with the Mac, so please bare with me.

Regards,

jamo224.
