    Hi, soory for newbies questions, but how to backup before update from ideneb 1.5.5 to 1.5.6

  3. user2 October 14, 2009 Reply

    lol @ this simple solution… when u d/l dsmos.kext (from http://pcwizcomputer.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=98&Itemid=45 ) it’ll be in folder form… copy it to extensions.backup (assuming u followed: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversion/index.php/t89260.html ) then follow the instructions from the aforementioned site for restoring… from there.. continue with this guide.. and it should work.. (as mine is now…just in time for comp class…lol.. the irony.)

    @Andres -I had a similar prob w/ my xps not opening osx86tools… what I ended up doing was reinstalling (w/ iatkos 5) yet before applying the update, I installed the osx86tools to make sure it would open.. (which is where I’m at now…)

    @luke now THAT’S where I’m stuck @… common sense tells me to disregard the steps on renaming the “Dont…” to dsmos, as the program already points to an existing file (I’m kickin myself for not installing dsmos from the iatk’5 disc)

    …meh, I thought I’d be able to work around it by using the original disc to install it, but that of course would require a reset *smacks forehead …do some digging around google maybe it can be found floating by itself somewhere…

    Well, i got to install the update with no problems but then i won’t allow me to start osx86tools or any other program, i restarted from there and i the OS boots but i’m left with a black screen, I have leo and4all and follow this guide http://henry.sage-vision.com/blog/?p=49 to install and update up to 10.5.4 , then did .5 following other guide so I used to be left in a black screen before but it would be normal and “awake” from that black screen by moving the mouse… Now it just sits there… back to 10.5.5 🙁 Anybody knows another way to 10.5.6?

    sorry, but when i start phase 2, i cannot start osx86tools, i click on the icon but the window don’t brings up, rebooting anyway the pc causes me to be stack on boot in something like “loop bug”, it says initialising, but is feezed.

    i have tried another time, starting osx86tool before installing the update, but when i select the options and click on the button to start, nothing happens, and after sometimes gives me a timeout error.

    another point i have no “Dont Steal Mac OS X.kext”

    thanks in advice, i’m interested in upgrade to 10.5.6 only ’cause ethernet drivers works ONLY in 10.5.6

    i have a Hp Compaq Mini 110

    Ok, this is wierd, in part one, you say to replace the Do Not Steal Mac OSX.kext with the dsmos.kext if it exists so i’m kinda confused because i don’t have the dsmos.kext but i have the do not steal kext. Are you telling me to not replace it with the dsmos.kext if i don’t have Dsmos.kext or are you telling me to replace it with a dsmos kext if the Do not steal Mac OSX thing exist?

    Thanks everybody!

    Hi Vinay,

    I just upgraded my dell d630 from 10.5.5 to 10.5.7 and everything works as before except my USB ports. My laptop would not detect any usb device (storage or mouse) when I plug them in. I did a backup of my kext before the upgrade and restored them after the upgrade which solved the usb problem at first but after rebooting my laptop, the usb stopped working again. I’ve restored the kext several times but the usb is still not working. Do you have any idea what the problem might be?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    These are my Spec:

    Original OS Kalyway 10.5.2
    updated to 10.5.4 then 10.5.5 after added voodoo due to boot issues, then added Nvkrush due to video issues, since then everything has worked fine. but want to upgrade to 10.5.6. since 10.5.7. will be out soon.

    Question: Currently Running Kalyway 10.5.5. with VOODOO Kernal. Will this update work with Voodooo?

    I have successfully updated 10.5.2 to 10.5.6 with this method. Following the additional advice of upgrading first to 10.5.3 then to 10.5.4.

    However, as a special note for dual booters (especially xp), installing EFI V9 will cause the xp bootloader to fail. So, it is advisable to upgrade the bootloader using vista bootloader via (EasyBCD).

    (1) You will need access to a machine with Vista on it and copy C:\Windows\Boot directory to your xp partition on the same directory
    (2) run EasyBCD and point Vista files to your xp partition
    (3) restart your computer and you will have three options: Vista / XP / OSX86; of course, Vista option will lead to nowhere (just remove it).

    After I updated my osx86, the whole system wouldn’t start. So, I created an XP installer on USB using USB_Multiboot_10, and log in to my windows partition from which I executed the above steps.

    This has been the most easy to understand 10.5.6 update.

    All is not right but it booted. Thank you so much Vinay. I will keep you posted on the fixes I have to make, and again thank you.

    Ok I followed your “Prepare your hackintosh for updating to 10.5.6” and installed the IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext. Now do I reboot and install MacOSXUpd10.5.6?

  16. Scott January 22, 2009 Reply

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550
    GeForce 8500 GT
    iDeneb 10.5.5

    And this is going to sound a little stupid but I don’t remember which kernel I selected during installation.

    After Running ”do rm –rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext;done” I got this:

    bash-3.2# while sleep 1;
    > do rm –rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext;done
    rm: –rf: No such file or directory

    rm: /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext: No such file or directory
    rm: –rf: No such file or directory

    Should I continue?
