here is my experiance with this error.........and how i solved it

i got the same error...... first i thought it was fault with the iso file i downloaded;as it showed me only 183kb when i open it with daemon tools...
but i thought to give it a try with vmware and it worked fine...so there is no problem with the iso file.....tried to write again and again and failed....i think i must have atleast tried 10 times....

while i was surffing this site for soolutions......i saw many people saying to change the dvd drive and get some thing like dvd-r; which is ofcourse very difficult........ and at last i found the answer
http://forum.insanel...showtopic=26503

how i solved it:

to remind -------it did not worked when i tried it with alcohol or nero

downloaded clone dvd from demonoid...to be precise ver 2.9.0.1........installed it.....and bought a sony dvd-rw(rewritable).
....and wrote the iso file to the dvd at x1 speed......and booted it.....and at last i got it worked......

ofcourse i have other problem...... as my hard disk is connected to usb and its not showing while installing......but atleast it booted from dvd...

thought of writting here as it is in sticky

i hope this helps

sorry for my english


i had same probblem...if anyone wants another program i used magiciso. very lite and fast. was able to burn at 4x and all went fine

Re burn the DVD with ISO format for 10.4.6 or 8

Clean the lens of the DVD drive
only use Sony CD

I had the same problem.

I left it for 10 minutes on the EBIOS error, by the time I had come back to it, it had either; restarted and it worked fine the second time round, or eventually it read the disc and the problem was solved.

I can only burn at 2x with disk utility on my macbook so I'm not sure if thats the problem but anyway I used the iso to do the vimware method and it I still got the ebios problem. Can anyone point me at the website they used to DL their copy of leopard? I cant' seem to find a different version anywhere. I downloaded for piratebay originally and I tried isohunt but it seems to be the same file.

Yep, those sites are carrying the same file. I downloaded my copy last night via mininova, and it seems like I encountered the same problem with the EBIOS as well. Below are my specs and post I originally put on another thread in this same forum.

******Please Help

I burned the new AMD DVD for leopard at the lowest speed and was able to get the DVD to boot. However, after pressing any key, and seeing some of the files load, at times I get this error message: EBIOS Error (and so and so forth). Are there any suggestions that can be given to me in addressing this problem? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

******Any ways to resolve this? Used almost every DVD Burning software I know off

Thanks

Here are my Specs:

I was having this problem because I was burning the file over the network. Be careful when transferring files with smb (samba or windows file sharing) and also with nfs. They impose a 2gb file limit so the file gets truncated at 2gb. If you must transfer the file over the network use scp or sshfs.

This is how I solved it:

open DVD tray, move your mouth really close to the gap behind the tray (through which you can look inside the dvd player) and blow really, REALLY hard. Make sure you don't wet your dvd drive, because water + electricity is not an ideal situation.

This 'error' usually means your DVD drive is almost dead, so if you tried burning your ISO on different DVD disks and brands, you know you need to replace it.

Good luck

I have this error AFTER running a perfect Leo hack for many moons. I am tempted to think that the hdd with the install is faulty. Looking at the hdd from another install ( on the same machine) - the file system does not get mounted. It does show up in Disk Utilities. I have not tried to mount it.

I had the same error on Sony VAIO SZ250P/C with Boot-132 and retail leopard 10.5.4. I got around it with out re-burning a disc but holding down F8 after insertting retail disc. When the error message came up 3 times, I ejected the disc and re-inserted it. The disc eventually load, however, I just had a blue screen on my monitor. So i hooked up an external display, and presto, I was of to the races. I did have to plug in a USB keyboard/mouse because my trackpad didn't work at that point. Hope this helps!

ok i also have this ebios error and i cant take it anymore!!! im trying to boot kalyway into my acer aspire one using an dvd drive connected with a sata/usb connector since this netbook doesnt have an internal drive. just like probably most people here with this issue i have tryed burning the iso with every kind of software at different speeds and setting and no luck yet. the funny part is that if i plug in the same dvd drive directly with the sata cable to my desktop computer and i try to boot kalyway it loads perfectly so i know the problem is not the drive or the dvd, but how could i solve this since there is no other way to install osx into a netbook but through usb :( please help!!!!!!

If you install with VMWare you need to change the DVD emulation to raw or "access the drive directly". I had two installs (tiger and leopard) and could not get the leo to be started. Checked the iso and it was OK (with daemon tool). So I checked the DVD drive emulation (thanks for the tip above posts) and there it was.

I get this error on my HP Pavilion DV8000.

I've probably burnt the iso 10 times, with x1 speed but still it doesn't work.
The DVD also boots fine on other computers. Now how the {censored} would I solve this? External DVD-drive?

Since it's a laptop I can't change my DVD-reader.

n1mda--- If you can get your hands on a External USB dvd drive and boot from that it has been the solution for many people

I managed to boot the DVD and install it to an external drive, since my SATA disks were not recognized. Though when I now boot I get a "Error parsing plist file" error.
I managed to boot it normally once, don't know how... but it didn't recognize my keyboard so I need to get an external USB keyboard.


Anyone got any suggestions to the error parsing plist error?
