ok....well i installed Mac OS X 10.5.X iDeneb via DVD+R by placing the DVD in my DVD drive. I then turned on my pc and waited for the disk to boot. Once the disk booted i chose English. After this i opened the Disk Utility and formatted my hard drive for MAC OS Extended (Journaled), i then left the the utility and chose my hard drive after accepting the agreement and added extra ATI drivers from the customize list. One i did this i hit install, the installer then checked the installation DVD which returned fine. Then the installer began to install the required files for MAC OS X 10.5.X. After this, i rebooted the computer and then was getting the screen shot above, which would be why i posted it in the first place to make sure you would understand EXACTLY what section i was stuck on. Now i get a problem where that screen does not even show up after a reinstall and just loads a black screen and reboots my computer over and over and never stops.
Next thing i did was load the OS with -v as you stated and i examined the start up scripts and there were no errors except DHCP as it could not find my NIC to download new source and update it self.
After all this, before your previous post, i used my last blank DVD and burned #####
- supported from the tonymacosx86 guide and i am able to boot #####
and then i put my 10.6 disk in and hit F5 and then choose to load the Snow Leopard DVD i purchased and even tried with -x to see if that would resolve the issue but with normal boot and the -x boot i get a blank black screen, not system reboot or anything, just blank screen. This is why i say drivers could be the issue.
As I stated above, i am not familiar with MAC but am very knowledgeable about Linux based off of the same source "Unix".
My last question about this before i get your input would be should i use the ATI #####
disc, since i have an ATI card and all, and if so its not very clear on his Guide abotu #####
, does the ATI Version just add drivers and then you have to boot the #####
- Supported as well or just load the ATI version and it should load up and allow me to boot the Snow Leopard DVD and install from there?
I hope this is enough information for you and that you will please stop the "n00b bashing" as the questions above could have been asked more professionally which keeps guests/registered users coming back time and time again.
Thanks again in advance!
