Hello all,

I have been reading this resource so much and it has been so helpful in getting my OSx86 setup going.

Now, I have a problem. I recently changed from a Toshiba P300-150 to P300-19P.

On the 150 iAtoks v7 worked. I could get it installed after some trial and error but it would work consistently when I needed to install it.
With the 19P I got it working to a familiar stage which was that the display looked more like static from an old TV set. Then I got it working on the next reinstall. So far it was just like the old 150, a bit of trial and error.

At some point during these installations I realised that I had installed on a logical partition so I had to F8 the CD and rd=disk#s# to get it booted.
Then I reinstalled again on an active partition and it has never worked. I have gone between the old partition I used and the new active one so many times but it refuses to work now for some reason.

When I say it does not work:
Installation is fine
Reboot is fine (when on active partition)
But all I get is the Apple logo and the stop sign which I think is Kernal Panic?
I did a -v boot and it stopped at the Firewire not being able to find device memory or something similar. I believe my FW device is an O2 micro of some sort. Win7 doesnt name it. ven_1217 any use?

I just can not figure out why I can not get it installed again.

I was hoping that some guys here could take a look at the above system specs for the 19P and say what I need to select?

I have been days at this. Very frustrating. For my needs I could have lived with the F8 rd=disk#s# method.

I must be one setting in the installation. My BIOS has only has "Compatibility" and "AHCI" as options in a setting. That is the only relavant thing in my BIOS


ARRGH!

For the record:
iAtkos S3 fails outright from the DVD. I get a Mac version of blue scree.
iAtkos L2 does not boot into installation from DVD. All I get is the apple logo.

I will get this topic posted now but if the system specs arent enough I will post whats needed up.



Many thanks,
A4
