Kakewalk -> 10.6.4, tried Software Update -> 10.6.8 FAIL, 10.6.6 update+Multibeast, more probs
I had a 10.6.4 running via Kakewalk, done back in March/2010.
I decided to upgrade to 10.6.8 (stupidly forgot to backup my system), & gambled with Software Update..instead of downloading the update, using Multi-Beast (enabling some kexts & System Utilities to update kext cache), re-booting.
On re-boot, I got a message
"CPU doesn't match Kernel"
[ I understand the SleepEnabler is incompatible, & must be deleted or updated? ]
I went & did another clean-install from Kakewalk, & the version ended up being 10.6..booted OK from Kakewalk.
I downloaded Multi-Beast, & started playing with it. I enabled some audio Kexts (Realtek888 & HDA) & System Utilities (to update Kext cache), & ran it. I guess it must have enabled BootLoader, because when I tried playing with the Kakewalk CD loader (& inadvertently had the Snow Leopard Install disk in the DVD drive), I got a red-apple thing..this is Bootloader?
I was able to boot up using -x, went into Terminal & found SleepEnabler.kext. Renamed it to SleepEnabler.old. Downloaded a 7.6.6 SleepEnabler & used Kext Utility to install it.
Tried re-booting using Bootloader & got a KP (Kernel Panic).
However, I am now UNABLE to boot via -x..it gets to the blue-screen & repeats in an infinite loop. So, now I can't get to Terminal or a safe OS X to try to repair..
What is going on? The original message of "CPU & Kernel not compatible" is because of invalid SleepEnabler kext? What about this new KP on boot? Now the infinite loop during a -x boot?
I can use Kakewalk to get to a clean-install of Snow Leopard, which will give me access to Terminal & Disk Utility
