you do know that 10.4 is exceptionally outdated...

also you are posting in the wrong place... the forum guidelines box even says so... post it where it says

i have never heard of, or seen anyone using your mobo...

From what i can see... That seems to be a AMD cpu which is not supported easily. Which Distro/retail disk are you using... The only Tiger disk i know has any AMD support is XxX 10.4.11 universal. It also has the greatest variety of drivers...

yeah i know ,but i have downloaded a later version ,it can't be installed.


Which later version did you download?

Have you tried Kalyway 10.5.2 Intel and AMD? It has support for AMD and works well on older systems.

I've done a quick google for WirelessAirPortDeviceNameCopy() and it appears that a lot of people get that line, but it doesn't usually result in the machine being unable to boot..

If I were you, I'd try and run a minimal system configuration and see if you can get it to boot that way. Then slowly add the hardware back bit by bit. For example...

Open the casing up, unplug anything that isn't essential. So you just have your RAM, CPU and HDD connected to the Motherboard. Then unplug any external hardware you have. Now try and boot. If that doesn't work I'd even take out RAM modules if you have more than one, to check that it isnt an issue with your RAM.

If you can get it working, then connect everything one-by-one until the fault occurs again.. then you have your problem!

Bearing in mind, my experiance has been repairing real apple machines - but the theory could be applied to your situation!

BTW - What distribution are you using? You could try using another one perhaps? Good luck! :D

Edit: Scottapotamas may have hit the nail on the head there; I didn't check your motherboard - if its an AMD one then you may have to hunt around a bit more!

i agree with the above, a hardware check is good... a mem and CPU test is also good....


Out of curiosity, you can boot/load linux and Win install disk and liveCD's right... Just in case...

oh ,the board is a AMD one!is the intel easyer than AMD?

and my problem can't be a hardware one,because i use the vmware to install the mac ,i just for spending the time of working ,it's boring!

actually, i've no idea with what macos is and the way it works!

AMD is a lot harder than intel... you defininitely need a AMD distro, try Kalyway 10.5.2 available on certain torrent sites...


And are you try to install into a VMware??? It is really difficult to do that. Try booting to the disk natively if so...
