  1. I have the similar results...using uphuck 10.4.9 v1.3 Installed fine on a Compaq Evo N800c, P4m 1.7gHz, ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 (32mb)
  2. uphuck, I Uphuck, I downloaded, burnt and installed your verison...btw...THANKS! But one problem, when I restart after the installation, I get the Gray Apple logo screen with the spinning "gear"...then a bunch of text scrolls through the screen and I get the "restart" message...you must restart by holding dow the poer button...I've tried several different installs and with each I install less and less.... I'm insatlling on a Compaq Evo N800c laptop...P4m 1.7gHz, 1GB RAM, 60gb hd (30gigs for WinXP SP2 and 30gb for MacOS). Please advise..THanks
  3. I just installed 10.4.9 on my Compaq Evo N800c laptop (P4m 1.7gHz, 1gb ram, 60gb hd, ATI Radeon Mobility 7500). Install went great, after I restart and select MacOS the grey apple screen comes up and a bunch of text scrolls down and then I get a black box in the middle of the screen that says I need to restart by holding down the power button. It keeps doing this over and over. Has anyone come across this and if so what does it mean with my install?
  4. taking pics of the screen is a little hard...during the -v -s or -v -x boots I wrote down some things I see about the graphics card.... Natit: Setting Model= ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 Titan: Testing for NVidia card... Titan: Could not make a display match AGP: Found Radeon M7 graphics adapter then some more lines follow, then the black screen. I also tried: BOOT: -v -s (after fast moving text and the next steps of booting I get the option to enter some commands) so I enter /sbin/mount -uw / (WHAT DOES THIS LINE DO?) then I hit enter then I type cd /system/library/extensions (WHAT DOES THIS LINE DO?) then I hit enter then I type rm -rf nvdaresman.kext (WHAT DOES THIS LINE DO?) then I hit enter, then what should the system do or what should I do?
  5. boinkytwo, I'm not sure how to use the -v boot. At what point do I start typing in command lines? I tried to follow the steps from your Restart Your Computer Errors post, but I am not successful. When i choose between WinXp or MacOS from my dual boot I select MacOS, upon which i hit enter and I get the BOOT: If I type -v ENTER, it start loading MacOS, scrolling through a list of operations (extremely fast) If I do not type -v and I type /sbin/mount -uw/ I get an error saying something is full (Kernel or Kext) Can any of this be done through Terminal using the install disc? Everything from the install disc is loaded onto my laptop (Compaq Evo n800c mobile P4 1.7gHz, 60gb hd (partitioned in two (NTFS and the other is MacOS) and 1gb of RAM....ATI Mobility 7500 graphics card....
  6. I installed everything from the cd...except for the additional languages and print drivers....I did not install the AMD pack...just the Intel one....
  7. I've installed MacOSX 10.4.8 on a Compaq EVO N800c, Mobile P4 1.7gHz, 60gb HDD, ATI Mobility 7500 and 1 GB ram.
  8. I successfully installed the JaS 10.4.8 SSE2/SSE3 Intel and AMD x86 copy....After the optimization of the hdd and Mac OS X neede to restart, Darwin starts up and boots me into the gray Apple and progress indicator screen...after several seconds (aprox 10-15) the progress indicator stops moving and the screen goes black. Please help!
  9. Devilhood...I installed macdrive so my pc can read the Mac OS discs and I then made ISO's of the discs and then burnt those images onto dual layer dvd's. Still no luck.
  10. Devilhood...HELP! I followed your instructions for creating a dual boot system with XP....after I finish the diskpart part I insert the Mac OS X install disc and reboot, but when my computer starts up it says ERROR LOADING OPERATING SYSTEM...what may I have done wrong? I am using Mac OS version 10.4.2 (that actual discs from Apple)....Please help!
