Well I installed JaS MacOSX on my HP Pavillion dv4165 Laptop it seemed to go OK, but when I try to boot to it, I get to the white/gray loading screen but after a few moments there is like a "Do Not" symbol that seems to be layered over the OS. I have recreated the screen using photoshop this is basically what it looks like:

Hi, glad you got the formatting problem sorted. I have never had this issue but I'm aware a lot of people have. Think they mainly refer to it as grey apple screen (consider adding that to the topics title to attract more detailed help). I've never had this issue and so don't know much about how to go about resolving it.

Just thought I'd tell you that you're more likely to get help for this issue under "OSx86 Installation" where it belongs, unless you actually are installing under VMWare (which I got the impression you weren't). I'll report it so that the topic can be relocated.

Good luck. :thumbsup_anim:

Well, first things first.. you need to get some diagnostic error messages here.

Boot up, and hit F8 at the Darwin bootloader. Then try typing -v followed by an ENTER. This will boot up in "verbose" mode. Instead of seeing the grey apple boot screen, you'll get scrolling white text telling you what is going on. This way you can read up on what fails.

Another thing you can try is booting with -x -v this puts the system in to safe mode (-x) along with the diagnostic messages. Maybe that will get you further along, at least.

Hope that helps somewhat.

And, for what it is worth, I've had better luck with the Myzar releases than JaS. No disrespect to JaS, just my experience.

If i remember correctly the myzars 10.4.6 worked where as Jas's just didn't. Anyway right now you should be considering to install 10.4.8 and then update to 10.4.9 using some of the guides.

It seems as though everything works up to where it says:

I'll try downloading 10.4.8 instead see if it fixes everything unless you guys have any other suggestions

Hey,

Are you installing to a SATA drive?

If so have you changed it to AHCI mode in BIOS? - it dit the trick for me, I was getting exacly the same error messages as you describe.

if you want to format your hdd into hfs mac for mat then use Paragon Partition master software google it for download.

Hello

I am Very Familiar with this problem i know its solution, i think you have two different hard disk drive in your PC or laptop, i mean two separate drives physically. os x PC types of Mac did not work on separate drives. there is only one solution for this that is you have to remove your one HDD from your PC/laptop then restart installation of mac and do not check any video card drivers under installation menu option. then continue.

May this solution work for you.

Thank You
