Hello everybody,

I've installed Mac OSX via Vmware (based on Adonias blog - http://blog.adonias....p?id=78&Lang=EN) with osx86_10.4.5_amd-intel_sse2-3.iso on a clean 30Gb Hard drive (my Windows XP is on two other 250 gb drives with RAID-0, but are disconnected while booting Mac OSX). Mac OSX is perfectly working in VMWare, but when I boot on the 30Gb Hard drive, it doesn't go on.

Here is the error : Posted Image

My config is : AMD Athlon X2 3800+ not overclocked, GeForce 7800 GT Pci-express, 2x512 DDR ram, HD 30gb IDE.

Big thank you for who will help me !

Looks like it might be problems with your nforce4 chipset. Is the hard drive sata? Actually I think you need to get the 10.4.6 jas because that has the 1.0a patches that are meant for amd boards.

Here is my hard drives config :

2x250 Gb RAID-0 SATA (nForce 4, WinXP)
1x250 Gb SATA (nForce 4, Docs)
1x30 Gb IDE (MacOSX)

I'm affraid disabling or unplugging my 2x250 RAID-0 because I don't want to break or loose my RAID chain health.

I think it comes from RAID SATA drives, but someone can confirm I can unplug them without loosing my RAID chain ?

Is it possible to find any update to apply path v1.0a and 10.4.6 or do I have to download entire MacOSX iso and reinstall it ?

Some news... I tried disabling RAID and SATA 1 and 2 ports (so my 2x250 Gb disappear from boot sequence) at my own risk : one good and one bad news :

The bad : MacOSX still doesn't want to boot native on my IDE harddrive
The good : my RAID chain is still alive and healthy !

I know it doesn't come from my RAID harddrives now, so where does it come from ?

I've looked for Maxxus patch 1.0a in google, can't find anything.
I've looked for 10.4.6 AMD in torrent, can't find anything...

Please help ! (and thanks to those who already answer)... I'm very close to decide to buy a real Mac in next days...

I think you should try going with the 10.4.6 jas dvd which resides with the "demons" or look around and see if the myzar is good because I think that is centered around amd since myzar uses amd processors. Couldnt find 1.0a patches! I'll look on mine and see if i can do something with my ftp site. Are you sure you have the 10.4.5 universal because it looks different when I put mine in, but the 10.4.6 Jas one is identical to yours? Also on the demon place look for jas ppf1.

Here is the screenshot (sorry for the quality) of my "try-to-boot-mac-osx" on my other machine (P4 3.2 Ghz - 512 Mo) with the same hard disk (30 gb). I know I installed AMD Mac OSX version, but I wanted to try, and it is "waiting for root volume" for long (not show on photo, but wrote "Still waiting for root volume" each 2 minutes). Doesn't work either, but should try to install an Intel version on this machine.

Thank you asap18, but... I didn't understand everything (shame on me...) Should I try to download 10.4.6 AMD Myzar version ?
I got my ISO on Adonias blog (http://blog.adonias.cl/leer.php?id=73) which is named "MaC.OsX.10.4.5.AMD_SSE2.iso", but there is not an Author name nor any 10.4.6 version.

Is "Jas" is the author of another version of MacOSX for x86 ? I found the patch here (http://blog.adonias...._v1.0a_1045.rar) and will try to install them tomorrow.

Have a good night and thanks for your answers.

that one is still down, try imageshack or flickr. Also tamagotchi check your hard drive jumpers. Make sure they are set to master or maybe slave but def. not cable select.

After installation put back the Nvidia card and still running today.
