I made a major blunder today and I humbly hope that you folks can save my sorry butt. I am using Chameleon v1.0.12 and up until today I literally had zero probelms with my Mini9 OSX install - it was running like a champ.
But I decided to update today from 10.5.6 to 10.5.8 to stop that stupid little update notification from bothering me. Upon updating I ran into the typical errors described by many other folks (the white screen with dashed lines specifically) so I used these instructions to get past that:
1- I booted into safe mode using -x,
2- Ran DellEFI 1.2a5 from a usb drive
3- Chose "Custom" DellEFI and removed the custom dsdt.aml file
5 -Booted into safe mode again using -x
6- Ran the DellEFI 1.2a5 from my usb drive and chose Custom DellEFI and installed the Mini 9 Extensions and recreate custom dsdt.aml file (I can't recall if I had anything else checked here unfortunatley)
7- Reboot again... And here is where I get stuck.
Upon reboot, I see the Apple Logo and spinning gear then it dumps to a blue screen. I figured "ok, let me get back to safe mode and rerun DellEFI 1.2a5 again". I cycle power and hit a key when the bootloader comes up and type -x. Boots same as before and dumps to a blue screen again.
I have tried numerous boot options in BIOS (disabling/enabling all boot options) but I still can't get past this screen. I have booted with -v to try and see where an error may be but the screen scrolls by too fast for me to get a good read.
Thanks for the time and sorry for such a long post. I will post more details if any of you folks need them. Any help at all is appreciated!
