With the busratio flag I have no more issues with the restart loop. But now the install hangs after inserting the retail DVD. There are many lines of text but it ends with these last few lines:

Kernel version:
Darwin Kernel Version 10.4.0: Thu Jun 17 18:42:31 EDT 2010; annappirtrvh v4 :xnu-1504.7.4/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_I386
System model name: MacPro2,1 (Mac-F4208DC8)

System uptime in nanoseconds: 639070313

My specs are listed below. HD is in AHCI. Thanks for your help so far, this is the farthest I've gotten in a while.

In Topic: Hazard Sl reboot loop and empire efi Cpu halted HELP

09 August 2010 - 03:42 AM

Today i tried to install SL with HAZARD Snow leopard.. When i boot from the disc and try to enter -v -f -s.. after it says something about darwin and reboots right when you see the gray apple screen. it does it so fast for like a split secound.

When i try the empire efi way it says cpu halted and shuts down the PC

I need help on how to get past the reboot loop or the cpu halted problem.


Studio XPS 9000, Intel Core i7-920 processor (8MB L3 Cache 2.66GHz)
8GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1066MHz
1024MB nVidia GeForce GT220

Same problem here with Hazard. I tried retail install with Empire EFI and boot-132 and had the same results. Endless rebooting with the same few lines of code. They go by too fast to really see what happens.

In Topic: Reboot loop on install DVD of iPC 10.5.6 on Core i7

09 August 2010 - 03:38 AM

I just built this new Core i7 920 based computer. Using the Gigabye EX58-UD3R board with 6gig of DDR3-1600 ram, 1TB SATA Drive, 1gig ATI Radeon HD 4670. Vista x64 runs fine on it and got it ready for dual booting.

Got a hold of the latest iPC DVD and when I load it, it starts with the Darwin loader, I press enter to start the DVD installation and it starts loading darwin, and then just reboots itself. After trying again with -v it seems to only get about 4-5lines in and reboots on "Starting Darwin x86". Thats the last line i can see before it reboots.

Ive tried almost everything in the bios from turning off HPET, changing the IDE from Native to Legacy Mode, changing from AHCI to RAID to Disabled, nothing really helps, the install DVD never even gets into the blue screen to start the install.

I was searching around and ran across this one thread of someone saying you the 9.5.0 kernel is not support on the x58 boards and I believe that is what the iPC 10.5.6 distro has. They mention you must use 9.6.0.
I ran across this nice thread that shows how to install on a gigabyte board (similar to what I have on Core i7 processor) http://www.insanelym...howtopic=149505
They mention using the retail DVD methods. But where Im confused if one uses say the 10.5.5 retail dvd wont the kernel be the 9.5.0? Maybe Im going down the wrong path.....

Basically Im trying to figure out why this install DVD cant even get past step2 of even getting to the blue screen/graphical install portion. The reboot looks like its rebooting on a kernel panic.

Any help on what might be the cause is appreciated. In the meantime im trying to get my hands on the 10.5.6 retail DVD and maybe try that to see if I get anywhere using Boot132.


Same problem here but on an AMD Phenom X4 955. There is no chance of loading anything, it just goes right into a reboot loop after a few lines of code in verbose mode.
