Hi, I'm new here so I will be as clear as possible. Thanks for the patience.

 

I'm trying to install Kaliway 10.5.1 on my hardware and I'm having trouble with it. In resume: When my Pc boots from the DVD Drive appears the message "Loadin Darwin" and that's it, it takes about 2 minutes doing this before it restarts on it's own and nothing else happens.

 

I already tried typing "vanilla" "-v" "-x" "-f" "cpus=1" tags in the boot menu in order to make it run.

 

My Hardware:

Gigabyte Motherboard GA-P31-DS3L

Intel Core 2 duo Processor 2.2 Mhz

2 Gb. Ram DDR2 800Mhz

GeForce 7300 512 Mb Video card

SATA 160 Gb Blank HD

SATA DVD writer

 

I don't know if it has something to do with my BIOS setup or my Kaliway iso. Thanks.

Ok - I will share with you some wisdom, having utilized this board now for the past 3 weeks. First - asking open ended questions rarely gets you any responses. This is a transient board, where people really don't stay that long (only use it while they are tinkering). Thus, the best way to get information is to investigate on your own. Find people here who are doing what you are, and then ask them.

 

Some of the things I have found useful...

 

1. Only boot with -v -f cpus=1

 

The -x is safety mode, and is not necessary (typically). Using these (3) switches together helped me to get further in the process.

 

2. Check the MD5 of your ISO you are using to burn your Kalyway

 

My internet connection is sporadic, such that my isos were downloading with VERY MINOR corruptions. Such corruptions spell disaster for these installers...

 

3. Don't be afraid to use various distros... I have tried Kalyway, Brazil, TOH, Uphuck, and Leo4all. Thus far, only Leo4all installed.

 

Hope that helps - Good luck... It is a great feeling when you finally crack the problem and get things to work...

I tried with unHuck iso and still having the problem. When booting from dvd, it starts loading darwin but it show a kernel panic message. I already set de Bios enable "execute disable bit" as you suggest me but i'm still not able to load os X installation. Something else I could Try???? Thanks.
