  1. cant instal snow leopard on my PC

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think the cross symbol means a kernel panic. Ive gotten it too. Though I don't get it when using the kalyway iso. I can install the first bit where you get everything copied over to the hard drive, but once you have to restart and then boot into the installation to finalize it, my PC just reboots. So in other words, I can't finalize the installation. Who knows, maybe it's a kernel panic too.
  2. vt-x

    Bump. I figure I gotta do this to get an answer in an over flooded board.
  3. vt-x

    I have heard of some changing the bios to where it enables this option on sony vaios. I have a sony vaio, so needless to say, vt-x is not enabled. Though I have the T6600 processor: http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=37255 Intel says it does not have vt-x. So does this mean it's impossible to "enable" it? I guess what I'm really asking here is, is it a physical hardware related extension to the CPU or is it within bios/firmware? Thanks
  4. My 2¢

    I know what you mean. It's because of the stickin' rule that new users must post here. It's not that this forum has no one that can help, but that this board specifically "New Users Lounge", is flooded with new threads so yours easily gets put to history with 0 replies. I guess this rule is set so that all newbe questions here are not spammed everywhere else. Though it still kinda stinks for us.
  5. Ok, thanks for the response. I wonder why Sony would do such a thing, other than power usage. Ill look at that thread.
  6. I got a Sony Vaio VGN-FW with the core 2 due T6600 processor. It does not support vt-x for some very odd and annoying reason. Does that mean that this wont work for my laptop?
  7. Can anyone help?

    I don't have a screen (yet), but it seems to stop at: USBF: 5.706 AppleUSBOHCI:[hexcode]::UMIInitialize unable to get device memory USBF: 5.707 ApplyUSBOHCI: unable to initiate umi // Above repeats once more with different numbers
  8. Can anyone help?

    I was trying to install snow leopard 10.6.0, but I had no luck. If I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] supported, my computer would restart as soon as you launched the os x dvd. If I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ati (I have an ati card) I could get to the apple loading screen. But about as soon as the apple loading screen loaded, I would get a bunch of errors print over the screen. But the primary error is classified as "kernel panic". So then I got os x retail 10.6.3. This time it is the same with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] supported. My PC restarts. But with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ati it is different. I get a bit further with the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ati and 10.6.3 combo. It gets to the apple loading screen and loads for about a minute, then a cross symbol appears right above the apple and it sits and sits. Never loads. So this is where I'm stuck at now. Anyone know what this means? It's a gray single cross symbol. Basically a tiny gray version of the "do not enter" sign: http://dailyrindblog.com/images/do-not-symbol.jpg Help would be appreciated as I'm lost. Thanks.
  9. Can I install

    Hello all, I have an older eMachines T5048 that I'm wondering if I can install os x snow leopard on. I am currently using a Sony Vaio FW series notebook, but it has no available partitions for me to try installing os x. So is it possible for the question "is it possible on my T5048" to be answered? I noticed that on a lot of tutorials out there it says to enable AHCI in your BIOS. I looked and saw no such setting. Does this mean I can't install it? Other wise, CPU-Z says about T5048: Thanks in advance.
