Hi all,

I have an Intel Pentium d 266ghz, 1024Mb ram, ASUS P5VDC-MX motherboard, Seagate 320GB hard disk. I have unplugged my primary IDE (samsung)
cos it's got all my files on it and i didn't want this install to lose any of my stuff.

I installed Jas 10.4.8, PC restarted, msg comes up
No Primary IDE detected! Press f1 to resume (no problem here i think- it's cos i unplugged my samsung and use the seagate- whenever i do this i get this msg) then the PC loads Darwin, then I get a message saying: "You need to restart your computer.... etc". So i do it, time and time again, still I cannot get past this 'restart' prompt.

<The message on the screen behind the 'restart' prompt is:

panic(cpu 0 caller 0x003A8D2F): Unable to find driver for this platform: "ACPI".

Debugger called: <panic>

This is an ACPI problem. No one is replying for some reason, but if you search ACPI, you'll probably find some info. I'm afraid I don't know much about this problem.

You can check compatibility with that CPU and motherboard as well.

It is a working board. Is Motherboard Bios up to date?
