  1. This topic can now be closed please mods. Back up and running on 10.6.8 with wifi (including USB and ethernet which some seem to have had issues with). Found that i did not need to edit the smbios.plist. IIRC i resorted to: Install of 10.6 (kept user account and settings amazingly) Installed and ran EDP 1.9 Ran software update straight up to 10.6.8 Lost wifi etc (but with EDP 1.9 no 100% cpu usage) Delete the file NetworkInterfaces.plist from /Lybrary/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ Delete Network Interfaces from System Preferences/Network Used Kext wizard to install AppleACPIPlatform.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext from 10.6.7 (i did not have a backup from 10.6.7 but you can google for these) Overwrite the Apple80211Monitor.bundle from 10.6.7 (i did not have a backup from 10.6.7 but you can google for this) Ran the kext wizard to repair permissions etc. YOU MUST DO THIS to correct the permissions (of a fair few things that i'm yet to understand) of Apple80211Monitor.bundle i think when you put this back you are missing SYSTEM and WHEEL. Ran EDP 1.9 again Reboot to KP. Force power off and back up and running on 10.6.8 with wifi Thank you people of this forum, you helped me out loads. James
  2. Hi all, I upgraded my D430 from 10.6.7 (EDP 1.8) to 10.6.8 today knowing a few tweaks would be needed after the update. So, using some info i found in jumpmans topic (D430 does not boot after upgrade to 10.6.8) and poldas topic (After update to 10.6.8 I lost wi-fi and ethernet) i've messed up... The laptop kernal panics on boot with: panic(cpu 0 caller 0x563ebd): "Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI\".\n"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1504.15.3/iokit/Kernal/IOPlatformExpert.cpp:1387 etc. etc. If anyone can help from just this info, great, otherwise i think i can explain what i have done if anyone can help reverse/fix. Following upgrade to 10.6.8 the laptop would kernal panic on boot. From jumpmans topic (D430 does not boot after upgrade to 10.6.8) i found i could boot successfully by specifying pmVersion=0 at the Chameleon boot prompt and using Bronxteck's advice to use nawcoms '10.6.8 sleep enabler' (and rebuild mkext) . The laptop now booted but was slow to respond, almost always had 100% cpu usage, ethernet and wifi did not work. I then found from poldas' topic (After update to 10.6.8 I lost wi-fi and ethernet) and i repaired my disk permissions, removed and re added my Airport, and updated my dsdt.aml file to replace _ADR with _UID under Device (PCI0) section. Then i replaced the AppleACPIPlatform.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext with the ones from 10.6.7 and used Kext Wizard to repair permissions and rebuild my kextkache. Reboot > KP Any help really appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this. James
  3. Be grateful for any input on getting the sleep to work on my dual core D430. I have configured: Bios A.09 - D430 solo core on 10.6.6 - > Sleep working ok Bios A.09 - D430 dual core on 10.6.7 - > Sleep does not appear to work. Or laptop will not resume from sleep. The laptop has to be force powered off. Have never been able to get the sleep function to work on this laptop. Followed the instructions on the Wiki more times than i care to remember! Wondered if anyone else could give me any troubleshooting pointers or point out where i could be going wrong. Worked first time on the solo core d430!? Thanks for any help. James
  4. Cheers guys, anyone recommend a drive to use? Or perhaps one not to use. Can see quite a few different types of zif connectors for the 1.8" hard drives, but nothing that look correct. Does anyone know if the dells/d4** range has a proprietary connection on the motherboard end of the ribbon cable?
  5. Hi all, Thinking about swapping the hard drive out of my D430 for a SSD option. Just wondered what SSD models other are using and their success? Also slightly related, where might i get a new HDD ribbon connector from? Cheer James
