Hardware Specs

Asus M2N-2 (Nforce chipset)


GeForce 8800 GTS

I started with Kalyway, but I couldn't even get the installer to run. So I downloaded Leo4Allv3final and it ran great, installed and everything. However, I got the dreaded HFS+ Partition error and solved that by booting into single user mode and marking that partition active with fdisk. Now, when I try to boot, I get the following... (this is even with the sata drive unplugged).


Not sure what else you need, apologize as im a newb with osx86! Im anxious to get this going though because Ive fallen in love with OSX from my macbook pro.




The options i chose

ToH Kernel 9.2

nvidia kexts

efi mbr



Install goes fine then i get what it shows in screenshot above.


I then tried with -x for safe mode, and it gave me the gray crash screen (you must restart your computer).


I then tried to remove the nvidia drivers by loading in -s and mount -uw / with no added luck.

Also, i removed the nvidia drivers as some people say that worked for them but no go. I also tried with -x and i get a kernel panic. Should i take a pic of that if it would help?


Thanks guys.. so far, both zephiroth and the other one do the exact same thing, although with zephiroth I get the gray splash page with spinning wheel thing..
