OSX 10.6.6


Just writing this post to say I have started the upgrade process for Snow Leopard, from 10.6.2 > 10.6.6. This is going to take a few days, I’m currently backing up my computer. If you are going to follow this tutorial, once I’ve completed it (if it’s working), I suggest you start your backups now if you don’t already have an up to date one elsewhere.

As always I will put a page and updated information, and will post an update blog post, Twitter post etc, to alert anyone when it’s complete. I’m hoping to get this done by the end of this week but I can’t be certain. I’m not sure of the current driver status’ that I use. This is going to take a LOT of effort and time. So bare with me if it isn’t complete by the end of this week. I’m not sure what my plans are.

Relating to other media, I would like to also record and upload videos showing how to install OSX Leopard and Snow Leopard, even the upgrading process of each but mostly the upgrading process I’m currently attempting. Sadly I don’t have a camera that will let me record in even remotely good quality. If i can get one from somewhere I’ll try my best, but I’m not promosing. I will continue to work on tutorials similar to the ones I have already on my YouTube account.

edit: 05/02/11 – I’m having loads of problems getting Windows 7 and Snow Leopard to dual boot. None of those tutorials in Google (using BCD, or even BCDEdit) are seeming to work. I’ve tried SO many times, tried SO many installations, so the upgrade process is going to be delayed for a while, whilst I backup my Windows 7 partition – I don’t fancy installing this, and setting it up again for the gazillionth time. I will still get around to dual booting guide, but it will most likely result in a format and repartitioning. So backup. Always backup. I have had my dual boot with Windows and Snow Leopard working before, but it wasn’t for my liking. It was Windows Boot Loader, listing both partitions and once you selected Macintosh, it would then proceed to load the Chameleon Bootloader. Which wasn’t ideal. I want it to be Chameleon only.

IMPORTANT EDIT: I have been reading about the beta release of OSX 10.5.7 to developers, which was not seeded long after 10.6.6 was released, so I am not sure what will be happening regarding that update. There won’t be much to it, if anything, most likely restrictions on Hackintosh users. It will probably be the last update (as many have said too) because Lion is not far away. With that said I am going to still try updating Snow Leopard to 10.6.6 (I am using the Hazard 10.6.6i release, as with the 10.6.2 release by the Hazard group), you can try downloading this yourself here if you fancy trying it yourself, using the same settings as I have shown on my site as a reference. If you have a success story, please send me an email with your steps and progress. So once 10.6.7 is released, if 10.6.6 is done and sorted by that point, then I most likely will not support 10.6.7.
