Re-installing - "nfs_boot_init_failed with 6\n"

14 March 2010 - 03:37 PM

Right guys, I've installed iDeneb 1.4 (Mac OS X 10.5.6) before on this machine - but had to format my HD for another project. Now I need to go back to Mac OS X for some work related stuff, and until I can afford a macbook - I thought I'd just go back to hackintosh for a while!

Now by default it wasn't working at all - so I unplugged my 160gb SATA HDD, and tried it with only IDE drives. Now I specify "rd=disk0s1 -v" and I get a little bit further; but its "Still waiting for root device". Now I remember having this before but for the life of me can't remember how I managed to get around it. Whilst this is happening, *one of the drives* clicks and it sounds like its just.. given up?!

I've googled and googled but to no avail, and played around with both my BIOS and my physical hardware. Both of my drives are set to cable select - and I've tried the HD as Primary and the DVD-ROM as secondary, and vise versa. (Both are IDE)

AHCI support is enabled in the BIOS, and I have looked at other links and got my BIOS looking as it should. See, I know it works as I installed this way before - but I just can't remember for the life of me what I actually did. :surprised:

rd=disk0s1: "Still waiting for root device..."

rd=disk1s1: "Got Boot Device" -> "nfs_boot_init_failed with 6\n"@Volumes/disk1s1/leo_xnu... nfs_vfsops.c:851

: Same as disk1s1; but with the additional "Runtime corruption detected" then a message about running fsck next reboot. (Dodgy media? I'll burn a new DVD..)

So from this, I'm guessing disk1s2 is the correct drive/partition. Now I will reburn the media - and see if that improves the situation at all. Any ideas guys?


iDeneb 1.4 (Mac OS X 10.5.6)

ASUS P5SD2-VM / Intel Celeron Dual Core E1400 / 2GB RAM / 80gb IDE HDD

Apple PowerMac G3 (Blue and White)

26 August 2009 - 09:19 PM

I've come into posession of an old Powermac G3 (Blue and White). As far as I know its all stock, and just been stored in a spare room for years!

Now I need some ideas to pimp it out! So here's some questions!

- Original hardware or not?
Should I try and somehow mount my PC inside that sexy looking case? Or stick with the apple goodness?!

- Which Operating System?
This thing can run Mac OS X Puma (10.1), or Tiger (10.4) with some added RAM. Or should I perhaps look at a linux distro?

- To mod, or not too mod?
I'm wondering if some little LEDs and El Wire would look good on this old school casing! I'm not sure yet though...

Any other ideas or suggestions? Cheers guys!
(Oh, and if anyone can help me get my hands on Mac OS X Puma, it'd be much appreciated!)

Mac OS X Puma (10.1)

26 August 2009 - 09:12 PM

Right guys, I've come into posession of an old Powermac G3 (Blue and White). As far as I know, its all stock still so I'm looking at a machine with about a 350mhz PPC processor, and 64mb of RAM. Now I want to try and get Mac OS X on it, as I'm pretty sure these bad boys came with Mac OS 8.

I know this machine can support Tiger/10.4 if it gets a RAM upgrade, otherwise I want to be looking as far as Puma/10.1.

Now I know you guys can't really condone piracy etc... BUT! Does anyone know where I could get a copy of 10.1? Preferably very cheap/free? I know it weighs in at around 500mb!

Cheers guys!

IONetworkingkit kext?

06 April 2009 - 12:33 PM

Hey guys!

I've just got iDeneb v1.4 (so 10.5.6) up and running and its all working smoothly. Using nvinject for my graphics and a kext for my integrated audio. The only issue is networking.

My integrated networking chipset (SIS 191) isnt supported so I'm using a pegasus based USBtoEthernet adaptor, however its not working correctly. I have done a bit of digging about and noticed that in verbose mode it complains of the lack of a iokit.IONetworkingKit file, before saying...

Can't determine dependencies for com.dsumorok.driver.USBPegasusEthernet.
Couldn't alloc class USBPegasusEthernet

So I'm guessing that iokit.IONetworkingKit is the dependancy that it requires, but can't find - hence not working.

I have put a list of my /System/Library/Extensions folder here [ http://pastebin.com/m3663b16c ] - and true enough, theres no IONetworkingKit. Does anyone know where I could grab this from? I've tried google and kexts.com to no avail!

Cheers in advance!
