Hey guys
Gotta be brief cause I need to go to work. Anyways I installed 10.4.6 on my AMD64 2800 system. Was getting the kernel compage error thingy during startup so I booted the dvd and ran the cp mach_kernel command in the terminal (copied just fine) Now when I get to the darwin bootloader and select the partition apple was installed in (just 1 partition available, it's using my whole disk) the screen flashes really quick and brings me back to the darwin boot loader again...

Any ideas?

Thanks
Adam

So NOBODY has had this problem?

*EDIT*

When the screen flashes really fast when I choose the partition in the Darwin boot loader I can kind of make out the last line that flashes by...I think it says

Mach-0 file has bad magic number

Am I reading that right? I have no idea what that means.

It's corruption of a superblock

Which means?...

Anyways I formatted the drive and reinstalled Mac OSX, this time only ticking the amd related patches. Again I get the same commpage error, I boot the dvd and perform the copy, and when I reboot I still get the same error...

What's going on?

a superblock iirc is the partition boot record, like the MBR, only for each partition - the first block of a partition, the ine the MBR hands off execution to when you boot.
