I rolled back to my snapshot of a fresh install and found that I could update to 10.6.1 (by downloading the package from the Apple support site) but could not successfully update to 10.6.2, either through the Combo update or the 10.6.1 -> 10.6.2 package. The installer appeared to quit prematurely just before finishing, and the VM told me to reboot, after which the VM hung again on boot up. Anyone have success updating to 10.6.2?

If I'm not mistaken SL 10.6.2 is compactible with i5. You can try SL 10.6.1&10.6.2 Client Server by Hazard. You can install SL 10.6.2 or SL Server 10.6.2 from the iso. And I think there is a kernel for i5. SL by Hazard works very good on my other HDD, not in VB.

Step 6. Install Chameleon from the “MacUtils” on to “Snow” drive. [How to Install Chameleon]
What I have done is simply insatll Chameleon by using the GUI method, selecting my Snow hdd for the installation.
However, in the [How to insatll Chameleon] page, the installation sounds like to me would depends on the dev ID (primary controller, sec controller etc), would this make a difference for my case? (As I am installing Chameleon while snow hdd is running as the Sec Master hdd, while actually, I will boot up this hdd by attaching it as the primary master).

This is what I did as well (installing by the GUI to the SL hdd), and it appeared to work.
For the error on reboot, I'm assuming you've tried the "-legacy" boot option? I had to do that (in addition to setting the CPU's to 1 in the VB GUI) to get mine to boot.

I have found that even without the -legacy option, SL can be started.
So, the trick is "1 CPU"....
anyway to solve it?
