Hey guys

I'm following this guide and am having some problems.

My specs are:
  • Gigabyte GA-880G-UD3H
  • AMD Phenom X4 955 BE
  • 4gb RAM
  • IDE DVD drive
  • Brand new 500gb SATA HDD
  • AMD 6870
Okay so I have tried installing OSX using two methods. 1) modCD with OSX install DVD, 2) Hazard's AMD Intel ISO. Here's the results...computer always restarts @ Extentions.mkext!

I am able to get to the screen where it asks if i want to hit F8 to enter boot flags or just start. I have tried boot flags such as "legacy_kernel", "-v", "-x".

UPDATE: I finally got Hazard's distro to boot on VirtualBox using busratio=18. I then tried to do this on my actual computer and the screen always gets stuck at this, no matter what boot flags are inputted.

As you can see, both methods are failing at loading Extensions.mkext! Here's another pic on the exact one that it fails on using modCD and OSX install DVD...

Any idea how to get around this? I've tried every boot flag I can think of...even at the same time: "-f -x -v graphicsenabler=no busratio=18 cpus=1", and still restarts...

Thanks,
Elliott

I actually noticed that it will say "Starting Darwin x86", and then it reboots!...

I have also tried with IPC's distro...still same problem.
