What to do? Install SL DVD 10.6.3 Retail from Apple Store


Recommended Posts

Hy, sorry if this post is in the bad place, but i didn't found something like my problem! I explain:

After making succefull instal of Mac Os X, i've crashed it out, " forgot to put pass word over system/BIOS ", then he went to sleep, i had big trouble to wake him up,,but, what ever,,

to make this instal, ive used garbage, old garbage " SLV1.iso ",, that i though good for my Dell D620,,second, i didn't setup correctly my BIOS, even so,, i was able to install and run Mac without single KP,,

Now, after setup correctly my bios, with pass word, to avoid KP when he sleep's,,,i've also made another new boot CD with NawcomModCD,,i've burn it and :( :( :( ,,,no possible boot from DVD Retail?

How in teh hell,,is this possible?

sorry, but i just don't now what more can i do!

Question, when i boot ModCD,, just before charge the screen with boot options, he give's me one error " error parsing plist file",, is my copie corrutp? do i have to do another?


Another question, cause this Os is new for me,, " do i have to update my bios before all this process? or can i do it after? is this the cause of KP?

This was the screen that he gave's me booting Mac DVD with

" mach_kernel-v",

cause all the athers stop before, with KP,,

Some propositions?

Held will be welcome,,

i think that if i don't this in 2 days i'm gonna kill myself,,

:huh:  -_-  <_>


1) make sure you have the latest copy of ModCD -> http://nawcom.com/osx86/ModCD/

2) make sure you have a proper Retail SL 10.6.0/10.6.3/10.6.8 DVD (if you don't it's not difficult to get an image, but you'll have to restore it, either to a USB key or a DVD)


Boot ModCD, swap disc, press F5. That's it, I've just done it on my D620 GMA950 LoRes and I get to the Snow Leopard installer without any problem. That is without any option and with default legacy kernel.


Again, yes, update your BIOS to the latest version and configure it as per recommended settings, that'll put your system in the best possible configuration to support OS X and get support from this place.
