Dell Inspiron 6000 Kernel Panic (rtclock_init) Fix
Have you tried the BIOS setting POST - Auto and it didn't do anything? Well, after a little bit of research, I found a fix!
When iPC and iDeneb wouldn't boot, I got truly annoyed. rtclock_init was kicking my ***!
So I tried this little fib:
BEFORE YOU BEGIN-- Disable Intel SpeedStep in BIOS, re-enable after installation! -- BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Step 1- Find your Pentium M maximum clock speed (For me, 1.6 GHz)
Step 2- Find the FSB clock speed (For me, 533 MHz)
Step 3- Convert Pentium M max clock speed to MHz (Ex. 1.6GHz = 1600 MHz)
Step 4- Subtract FSB clock speed from max clock speed in MHz (So 1,067 for me.)
Step 5- Divide by 133. Round to nearest tenth (So, 8.)
Step 6- Type busratio=(insert number here) into boot: prompt after pressing F8 on boot of DVD
I had this laptop laying around, now I have a MacBook Pro AND a dell running 10.5.6!
