10.6: How to boot into the 64-bit kernel
Authored by: efseiler on Mar 01, '10 12:12:30PM

I might add that according to the system log the only kernel extension not supported is 'InternalModemSupport.kext'

Apparently it contains no code for running the kernel's architecture.


I would guess that Apple disables booting the 64-bit kernel in the low-end Intel macs so as to create an additional valid selling point for the high-end macs where booting into the 64-bit kernel is enabled by default.
