After a succesful installation of MacOSX on my notebook (10.6.3) I wanted to take things to a next level. I downloaded Niresh 10.8.2 and burned on a regular DVD. After a run test in VMWare (which was succesful) I decided to install it on my harddrive.

So I made a HFS+ partition, made it primary and activated it via Gparted.

With a bright smile on my face I decided to boot my Niresh 10.8.2 CD and booted up to the bootloader.

Trying to start the installation with following flags:

amd -v

In the verbose mode I noticed that he reads my processor so I finger crossed but after 10 seconds he hangs on

IOApic0x21 (###:###*) Can't remember the numbers

So I had this problem before with a 10.6 distro and I wasn't able to bypass it. Downloaded iAtkos S3 and made a NAWCOM ModCD and added a different AMD kernel and booted up with no any problems.

Can anyone help me bypass this error?

For those who has the same issue.

Sounds maybe weird but this is how you solve the problem.

Put a USB Device in a USB-Port. And disconnect it again.
