Nawcom's ModCD installation process is as follows:

1) boot ModCD

2) at ModCD setup screen, swap CD/DVD

3) press F5

4) When "Mac OS X Install DVD" icon appears, select it with left/right arrow keys and press [ENTER]


That's it, that'll take you to the Mac OS installer screen. Done and verified last night with Retail DVD 10.6.3.on D620 GMA950. Just boot with default legacy kernel as I found that Mach kernel gave me a black screen...


NB: Not that it matters to be able to boot ModCD and into the SL installer, but you never mentioned any pre-existing Windows installation before... Is that something "new" on your D620 HDD that you want to keep?

the only thing i can think of is if you have an existing extra folder. is that chameleon changed the naming of com.apple.Boot.plist to org.chameleon.Boot.plist new version of chameleon responds to org. naming. Mod cd might still be using the com. naming there both the same file just some one decided to change the name for some reason.

yes,i've download the lestest version of NawcomModCD,,,and i've made 3 Boot CD's,,no possible way to boot SL DVD Retail,,is not damage,, is got less then 3 week's,,i've already done successfull install of Mac Os X with the same DVD,,,but,,i've used SLV1.ISO,,

well,,i've tryed all modes, with all 3 CD's,,no boot possible, sometimes errors, sometimes KP,,strange, now that i use ModCD and got correct setup my BIOS ,i can't be able to boot Mac Os X dvd,,however,,with SLV1.iso,,i boot Mac Os X DVD easy and normally,,i've tryed another methode,,,i explain,,i'm happy,, aparently i've install succefully Mac,,with My Hack but diferently from your guide,,i'm happy everything run's fine so,, i did this:

i boot with SLV1.iso,,i made Mac Os X install,,then using USB 8GB,,i've made restore image of Mac Os X DVD, on disk utility( i made this, cause my hack takes to long to install Mac Os DVD, and bugs a lot ),,so once restore finnish, i've run My Hack for USB,,i've install " chameleon, myhack utilitys, extra, take off problematic extensions and run my fix ",,after this i restart Pc and i was able to boot from USB,, finally, no errors and mac Os X is installed, got graphics, internet, except sound, but think is easy to fix,,want to look arround,, gonna connect my self and download team veawer,,see you!

and then i restart
