Hi Folks:

I found iPC Mac OS X 10.5.6 in a torrent site. I installed it on a second HD on my Intel Celeron 2.7GHz, Soyo-P4VGA MoBo. I have Debian and WinXP installed on the First HD.

After installation I used GRUB config on Debian to set up the boot loader/order. When I choose Mac OS X on GRUB, the computer restarts. The installation is a plain Vanilla installation, I chose Chameleon Boot Loader, it did nothing in installation.

Please help me get Apple running on my PC.

Thanks,
Alan

You need to choose a patched kernel, your CPU isn't able to load the vanilla kernel.

Voodoo





HI:





I installed it using modbin patched, and I am able to get into boot prompt but get this message 




"still waiting for root device"


Should I install it with Voodoo?





Thanks,

AJ

Hi:




I continuously get this message "still waiting for root device" even with Voodoo Kernel. I checked the google there are no solutions posted.




Please help me get Mac started on my PC




Thanks,

Alan
