[Solved] Dell Latitude D630


Recommended Posts


I am new here and am attempting to install Snow Leopard on a Dell Latitude D630. I have followed the instructions provided at the following link- http://www.osxlatitude.com/edp/documentation/installation/and have run into a kernal panic. It states:


panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff800053e932): "Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI\".\n"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1456.1.25/io


Debugger called: <panic>

Bactrace (CPU 0), Frame : Return Address

0xffffff801ce33ce0 : 0xffffff8000204ae6

0xffffff801ce33de0 : 0xffffff800053e932

0xffffff801ce33df0 : 0xffffff8000522e60

0xffffff801ce33e40 : 0xffffff800052356b

0xffffff801ce33ee0 : 0xffffff80005238d9

0xffffff801ce33f40 : 0xffffff8000523ac4

0xffffff801ce33fa0 : 0xffffff80002c3eb7


I would really appreciate the help,

Thanks in advanced :)

Make sure you do not have any kext called AppleACPIPlatform in your Extra folder. All versions of SL work fine with their own native versions. The AppleACPIPlatform kext provided in many bootpacks comes from 10.6.7 (v1.3.5) or 10.6.8 (v1.3.6) but only applies to Lion and ML. As far as I know, these kext versions from SL 10.6.7/10.6.8 do not work with earlier versions of SL.


If you find the kext in /Extra/Extensions, delete it and re-run myFix (Quick) on your media.
