Topics I've Started

Please help: Acer Aspire 5610, CoreDuo, Intel 950 GMA

28 January 2011 - 04:05 AM

Hi everyone,

I've been trying for over a week to get this working. Tried posting in New Users Lounge and also spent a lot of time googling around.

I have an Acer Aspire notebook.
Intel Core Duo
Intel 950 GMA graphics

I've actually been able to go through the "first phase" install of Snow Leopard, but that's it. any attempt at booting the installed image on the hdd gets me stuck on a grey screen with a movable mouse pointer.

One thing suggested during my searching around was that this might be due to a kernel problem. I've tried different boot CDs, different boot flags (arch=i386, cpus=1, etc)

Nothing gets me over this hurdle. I had no issues going through the initial install up until the screen that says "installation failed"

I've run out of ideas. Posted Image

Should I attempt to do a full reinstall? Does it matter which boot CD I use during install? I installed via the legacy empire efi CD.

Thanks
Ricardo

Where else can I get some help?

I'm not able to post in more specific areas of this forum, only the New Users Lounge, but it looks like my situation is kind of unique because I'm not really getting any responses.

I have an Acer Aspire notebook.

Intel Core Duo
Intel 950 GMA graphics

I've actually been able to go through the "first phase" install of Snow Leopard, but that's it. any attempt at booting the installed image on the hdd gets me stuck on a grey screen with a movable cursor pointer.

I've spent days searching around and trying many different things, but no success. I've posted here and on tonymacx86. Nothing on either forum.

I've run out of ideas. :wacko:

Is there somewhere else I can get help? Or maybe the chance to post in a more specific area in InsanelyMac?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Please help: trying a new OSX install - Snow Leopard [partial success]

22 January 2011 - 10:43 PM

Hi,

I first starting experimenting with VirtualBox and had no issues installing Snow Leopard. However it is virtually useless because it is so slow in VirtualBox

So I decided to try and install on one of my laptops.

I have an Acer Aspire 5610
Intel Core Duo T2350
Intel Graphics 950

I've spent a few hours reading up different topics, and tried a few different boot loaders. The SL retail DVD won't boot directly. I tried the same boot loader I used in VirtualBox (the legacy_empire efi) and although I'm able to boot the SL retail DVD, I basically get a grey screen and no graphics at all.

I tried other boot loaders found in this forum (like boot-kabyl-bumby, osxloader) and none of them get me anywhere.

I'm very new to this but am excited about the prospect of making it work. I didn't quite understand how to attempt getting any other flavors of boot-132 to work.

Can someone help me out?

I greatly appreciate it!

thanks
Ricardo

Install on VirtualBox 4.0.2

22 January 2011 - 05:40 AM

Hi,

I've installed 10.6.3 on VBox 4.0.2, Windows 7 host.

I'm not able to get sound working, and also I only have 1024x768 available in the displays.

Any tips on getting both of those working?
