  1. So, I used to have Kalyway 10.5.2 installed on a 10GB IDE drive, but since this was the largest IDE I had around the house I wanted to find a distrobution that would be able to install on a SATA drive. So i found ideneb v1.3? 10.5.5 which succesfully installed on my much larger 230GB spare SATA drive. It booted up and works perfectly. But now that it's on a SATA drive chain0, when selected from the boot.ini bootloader says "Chain booting error" Which I assume means it finds not OS X installation. So, is this the reason for the chain booting error, and is there a way to easily dual boot without going into the BIOS every time? My system: AMD Athalon64 3000+ 1.8GHz 1GB Ram Nvidia 6600 LE (Which I can't get to work properly) NForce 4 chipset If you want to know anything else, just ask.
  2. in the /Developer directory it puts just about all its files.
  3. A GUI way to do this would be to get Acronis Disk Director Suite and make a recovery disk with it. In that you just go to the first option (the one that says (recommended) and then go into manual mode and right click the partition you want to be active, go to advanced and click "set as active"
  4. I have previously completed a flawless Kalyway 10.5.2 Install But lost it today to accidental erasing. So I went to install it again, all went well except when It boots it gets to a black screen with a mouse cursor. If I move the cursor then it leaves an image of one behind and is able to move around. After about 15 seconds it turns to a pinwheel thing and it stays that way My System Amd 64 3000+ Nvidia GeForce 6600 LE Asus A8N-E motherboard nForce 4 chipset (2) 512MB DDR ram Need any more info? Tell me
  5. Well, To answer my own question, It runs great =D And It took me a few more nights than expected
  6. Noob wanting to install Tiger

    Wow I have the Exact same system as you. Everythings the same, haha. Anyways, I havent tried many but nothing has worked for me so far. (ALMOST got JaS 10.4.8 to work but I though it was stuck in a loop and turned the computer off, but just today I realized that it would've finished... and now I can't get the DVD to boot again )
  7. argghhh... Unfortunatly this didn't work for me, I still got the "still waiting for root device message right after the nForceATA thing. Any ideas?
  8. This looks pretty good! Im gonna try it once I locate Kalyway =D I have an A8N-E mobo, AMD 64 3000+ (venice, single core) processor and 1GB of ram Ill post back on how it goes.
  9. Serious problem

    Im not an expert at all, but maybe your DVD had a scratch or you burnt it at too high of a speed. I'd try burning on the lowest possible speed.
  10. Well, Im just wondering, How fast do you think Tiger will run on my system - 1.8 GHz, 1GB of RAM..
  11. Also I have a NVIDIA GeForce 6600 LE video card, thanks.Oh ok, sorry to ask as it is probably obvious but where do I find info on these? x.x Just joined here today.
  12. Yeah, I wan't to install Mac OS X on VMWare. I don't know exactly what to download though, any help? Mobo: Asus A8N-E Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 1.81 Ghz Ram: 1GB If you need any more information let me know, I'll reply quick. Thanks so much for helping me out.
