Leo4all hangs after install

11 May 2009 - 03:27 PM

Hello all,

I never had good luck posting here but I'm hoping someone will take the time to help me.

Yesterday I attempted to install Leo4allv3. The install cd wouldn't boot in normal startup mode or using -v or -x. Eventually I got it to boot using CPUS=1 -V. Leo4all booted, I created the partition then let it install with the default settings.

After reboot my new Leo4all install hangs at:

ioapic: version 0x20 vectors 64:87

So, I tried booting using -v and -x without any success.

I then tried using CPUS=1 -V and this time it booted further but hung up and just repeatedly said:

still waiting for root device

I then attempted to reinstalling using the vanilla kernal and some of the other drivers included with Leo4all but got the same exact results.

Does anyone know how I can get Leo4all working?

Here is my specs:

Help! Installed Kalyway but can't get past gray boot screen

01 October 2008 - 03:37 PM

I installed Kalyway 10.5.2 a little while ago but can't get past the gray boot screen. It just sits there. I have searched the forums for days now and haven't found a solution that doesn't suggest re-installing osx without selecting there video drivers. I would really like to find a solution that doesn't involve re-installing because installing it once was pain and who knows if a re-install will fix it.

I am using tboot as my boot loader because I am running xp and osx, not sure if that would have anything to do with it.

So does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

As always, any help will be greatly appreciated.

Missing operating system after kalyway 10.5.2

20 September 2008 - 08:54 PM


I just attempted to dual boot XP and Kalyway 10.5.2 today and everything seemed to install smoothlly until it was time to reboot. The computer rebooted and "Missing Operating System" appeared. I attempted to us gparted and set my windows partition to "boot" but that didn't work so I tried setting my OS X partition to boot and still no luck.

So now I can't boot windows or OS X.

Does anyone know how to fix this. I have searched the internet all day and haven't found any answers. Its very frustrating and I'm about to give up on ever getting OS X to run.

Any help would bee greatly appreciated.
