In Topic: Snow Leopard on Dell Optiplex 745

04 November 2013 - 07:39 PM

I am struggling to get a bootable Snow Leopard on OptiPlex 745.

I have already installed Atkos L2 and it boots till a point when I see grey logo with a line through it in the middle.


On doing "-v" option, I see that the core issue is this:


rooting via boot-uuid from /chosen: CA0179A4-B09C-3B0E-84F7-8AB2EFB7DBDE
From path: "uuid", Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID="1">IOResources</string><key>IOResourceMatch<key><string ID="2">boot-uuid-media</string></dict>

Still waiting for root device



I have two questions:

1. How do I force Apple to always boot in "-v" mode. (Its been a struggle to insert that at each boot trapping the startup of the OS)

2. How do I resolve this above error ? What does it mean "boot-uuid-media" and then waiting for root device ? Will flags like "arch=i386" and "npci=0x2000" help here ?


I would like to understand the Mac OSX operating system rather than just trial and error so need someone knowlegeable who can explain me what exactly is going on.
