Hey everyone. I have followed the guide from http://webcache.goog...s&client=safari (original site doesnt display) and then the side notes from another post on here (use r1999 chameleon for example)

Specs:
P5W-DH Deluxe Asus
Q6600 Intel Quad Core
7GB RAM
ATI HD 5600

I get the bootloader then do a -v and this is the last thing I see before the computer just restarts on its own.

I have the mach_kernel in the root partition (using a 2nd drive and split the installer *first partition* to 9gb then the rest for the install)

I am running the latest 10.7.4 with no issues and been doing this since 10.5 . Can someone help me plz?

Since you did not copy the kernel cache, include -f as boot flag. Also adding -x never hurts too

Thanks for the reply. I wound up doing some bios tweaks and it worked (why 10.7.4 was ok and 10.8 wasn't IDK why).

I Still have some issues with my video card (had the same issues in 10.7, should of bought a more compatible card for OS X), also with my sound (using a usb sound card for now). Other than that it is working fine.

Thanks again,
Tinfoil

TinFoil,
I use same board, same problem. 10.7.4 works, 10.8 DP3 works, 10.8 DP4 won't boot. What bios changes did you make? I've used a couple of different images, so that's not the problem, DP4 installs, just won't boot. Thanks
