I've been trying to find help but it is so difficult.
My Thinkpad T60 (1951-A47) has C2D with GMA945.
It took me long time to figure out that for me the right way to install OSX (SL 10.6.0 vanilla DVD) was:
- Change from ACHI to Compatibility (odd)
- run install with -x
I have installed SL to 2 different drives (both are 60GB).
I basically followed sebinouse notes from this forum and step 2 from http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/04/iboot-multibeast-install-mac-os-x-on.html
as sebinouse adviced.
Installation is successfull but;
- after the install the disk with SL is not seen by IBoot bootloader CD
- I'm not able to do the fist boot to OSX
so step 17 failed ("When you get to the boot selection screen, choose your new Snow Leopard installation")
Snow Leopard and EFI partitions are there. My linux sees the SL partition and I can see that folders and files exists. But my bootloader(s) do not see the HD. I have tried both ACHI and Compatibility mode. Nothing seems to help. I can't find any advice. I'm getting crazy because I can't understand what I'm missing. Has anybody seen anything like this?
I've also tried to attach the SL disk thru USB and multibay but that does not help. Bootloader sees my Linux/Win7 but no way to get the SL disk been seen.
I will add what bootloaders I have tried and will report:
1. BootCD_MacPNT (2010 11 22 - BootCD_MacPNT.iso) from Sebinouse
2. iboot-320-tonymacx86com from tonymacx86 Forum
3. rBoor-LE ver. 2012-02-02
BootCD_MacPNT is not able to install OSX with any combination
iboot-320 installs with -x switch
rBoor-LE sees other drives but not my disk with SL
