  1. EBIOS Error During Install DVD Boot

    n1ck1, You would probably get better help by not asking your question in this thread, as most people here expect to see messages relating to "EBIOS Error During Install DVD Boot", hence the title. Your question does not relate to the conversation in this thread. Don't mean to sound like a jerk... I'd like you to get a solution to your problem but you'll need to ask your question in the right place. DCF
  2. This just does´nt work OSX86

    bguran, No problem, we've all been frustrated at one time or another. If I remember right your 10.4.8 DVD has no drivers for Nvidia included, you would need 10.4.9 to get natit/titan drivers installed with the OS installation. I'd rather not post a link here but a major and well known torrent site has what you are probably looking for, I was able to find a torrent quite easy today. It shouldn't be too hard to find and the file size is much much smaller as well, at not much over a gb. Let us know what you come up with. DCF

    I used JaS 10.4.8 for a while. Actually I'm using it on this very computer. Did you start up in verbose mode? (F8 on startup and use -v at the prompt) Sometimes you'll get a better clue as to what the problem is that way. I have another computer with a dual output video card that had the "black screen" issue as well and 10.4.9 uphuck seemed to work much better. The problem was that I have a digital output I use for my HDTV but it would try to use the analog output which was not connected to anything. I don't know if that's even close to the same problem you're experiencing but try loading up in verbose and let us know what your findings are. DCF

    bguran, Let me know if you don't plan on using that hardware... if you're not, forward it my way... I wouldn't mind another machine, even if it's less powerful. My 2 year old kid would love the new toy! Thanks in advance if you throw the vid card in, it should work fine. I figure you'll probably want to stick with what your good at (grease, nuts, etc.). Cheers! DCF
  5. EBIOS Error During Install DVD Boot

    A few things to try before you pull your hair out... one or the other or both First, set the DVD-Rom drive to master on an 80-conductor cable. Do not attach anything else to that cable. Do not use cable select or slave. Second, sometimes the drive itself will be picky about media, if a DVD+R gives you the ebios error, use a DVD-R, or the other way around. I have ran into the problem many times on different machines, give these things a try before you waste your time burning a stack of DVD's. DCF
