hello!
i was wondering if someone is capable of booting with this flag arch=x86_64, for full 64 bits with a legacy kernel.

actually the only way i can start with a legacy kernel is with flags arch=i386 -force64

other thing makes panic when loading the first kext (?)
thanks in advance

yeah of course i know those flags...

the thing is that, like many others, startup panics when loading ACPI system (appleacpiplatform ioacpifamily iopcifamily)

seems that 64 bits kernel space (arch=x86_64) is not possible with AMD
its only possible 32 bits kernel space (arch=i386) enabling 64 bits user space (-force64)

can someone confirm this?

best regards
