when booting into OSX, hold the F8 key just before it starts to initialize...you will then get the same options you got when installing the OS. for me, i type cpus=1 idlehalt=0 -x and this allows the machine to boot successfully. give that a try...it works for me with high success. -Aaron
I am trying to install OSX86 on my Toshiba Portege M400 as well but am running into issues during installation. THe problem occurs while I'm trying to install the OS itself. I can boot to a 10.4.7 disk with no problem, get to the installer, and start the installer. However, most of the time the installer crashes durning the "Installing Base System Part 1." The other interesting thing about my problem is that after one crash, the installer will progressively crash sooner and sooner in the install process until I can't even get to the menu system. Has anyone experienced this problem, or know what the cause might be?? -Aaron
