"Using 2621 buffer headers and 2621 Clusters buffer headers ......." and would hang there
I tried -x -v platform=X86PC / ACPI.
I thought, I finally got a P4 and it turns out to be f*cked.
Anyway, this is how i fixed it.
Got a WinXPE CD. I didnt have windows, so i had to use one. If you have Windows you wont need the XPE CD. If u donot know what XPE is install Windows.
Next i got a sweet brainwave (Its a bit slow, took 3 Days to come up with answer)
1) I got my 10.4.1 diskimage
2) DD'd this image onto P4's HDD
3) Booted 10.4.1 after much ado, with -x -v platform=X86PC
4) Now when I insert the OSX 10.4.3 DVD,(with -x -v platform=X86PC), it runs perfect. No errors.
5) Now I booted back into windows, deleted 6.6 GB 10.4.1 Partition
6) Created 10 GB partition with 'diskpart', id=af primary
7) Booted DVD with -x -v platform=X86PC
8) Formatted 10 GB partition with Disk Utility
9) 10.4.3 Worked perfect. Boots up without any options.
If you are having problems installing,
1) Create an 'id=af' primary partition using 'diskpart'
2) Install 10.4.1 using the disk image (I hope u find it at piratebay or demonoid)
3) If needed as last resort, upgrade your 10.4.1 to 10.4.3 then 10.4.5 and finally 10.4.6
4) Make sure the HD you are installing to is Primary Master. (Thanks to S1LV3R)
NOTE: I didnot reburn the install DVD. Attached below is my created (put together from other guides) guide on how to install 10.4.1. Please put your comments
