Greetings,

First off, I've tried EVERYTHING I could find in forums/tutorials/etc.

The two screenshots below pretty much explain the situation.

A few things you should know:

• I am using the "Mac OS X 10.4.6 x86 Install DVD (JaS)" ISO, mounted with D-Tools 4.03HE (x64.)
• The HD I selected for this task is initialized, but not formatted or partitioned in any way.
• Running from a virtual hard drive in VMware, OSX installed fine with no errors, but not with a physical hard drive.
• The guest output halted after the "error 88" bit for about 5 minutes...
• Then halted again after the "PIIXPATA" bit for some odd amount of time (I got sick of it and went to bed.)
• (When I woke up) the panic had been called, and the guest disabled the CPU to no surprise.
• I have tried the installation with and without all unnecessary hardware disabled (Ethernet, Audio, Floppy, Second Processor.)

If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it, and if anyone needs more information, I would be happy to oblige.

Thank you,
Brian Ziemek

did u select the right options during the install like sse2/3 or amd. Try disabling one of your processors.

I haven't gotten as far as the install when working with the fixed HD, only when running a VM using an emulated HD.

Also, I've tried disabling the second processor - no luck.

As I said though, everything went smoothly using the same settings with an emulated HD.

I've been unable to. That is Darwin's output from the Install DVD prior to installation. It hasn't gotten any farther then that.

Up to that point though, I have tried the VMware to native method's instructions.

I came across the same problem. But later, I tried to create a "legacy" system with VMWare and passed.

I guess it is because the non-legacy system of VMWare is too advanced to MAC OS X86.

I don't know if this can help but I got this problem too once. What happpned was that I was trying to install to my Notebook Computer but I can't use the image file that was in there. However if I tried to install using the file on my other computer (using the wireless network at my house), it worked.

Sooo.... I'd make sure you got every single, file first of all and didn't skip any. And I don't think the network thing had anything to do with it, but if this fails again, you might just have gotten a bad file.

Well, I don't know about non-legacy VMWare being too advanced, but it would seem at the least that the legacy BIOS has a different way of handling certain hardware. Either way, a legacy VM fixed it right up, and OS X is currently installing. :)

I'm so glad that worked. I was getting sick of having OS X stuck running off a virtual drive, and hence limited to use inside VMWare.
