When i try to install osx86 10.4.4 I get an error, before the disk even boots. I have gotten it on two diferent computers, two virtual machines, and have used different iso's. The exact error says (on vmware):

Memory allocation error (0xdeadbeef, 0x0)

My pc specs are:
AMD Athlon 64 FX 57
4gb Patriot RAM
two 300gb SATA HDD's
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe nForce4 Motherboard
nVidia geForce 7800 ultra 256mb video card
550 watt power supply

My laptop spec are:
AMD Turion 64
650mb Corsair
80gb IDE HDD
ATI Radeon Xpress 200m video card
250 watt power supply

The computers should be powerful enough to run OS X and the iso's should be ok, so does anybody have any idea as to what is wrong?

Yea I get the error on mine, mine is an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ and 2 gigs of RAM. I cant install any MAC OS, each time I get up to the dvd boot up screen I get an memory allocation error message. I was wondering maybe because one of my RAM sticks is not PC5300, but that cant cause an error like that right?

I have this error, if I boot with the included external USB drive. If external USB drive is disabled at boot - everything is going well. I tried different versions of Chameleon 2, but no results... Help please!!
(sorry for my English)
