I instaled it without any problems. And when i turn on the PC the logo of apple appears and it says:


You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power button for several seconds or press the Restart Button.


I reboot but it keep asking the same :S


Can you help me please?

sorry to jack the thread, but I am having the same exact issue. Installed 10.5.1 w/o a problem, installed combo update (from download), and then rebooted. Now each time I boot, it keeps telling me to reboot.


gigabyte p32-ds3l

e8400 (stock)

2gb ram (1 memory stick)

installed to hard drive with two partions (80/21 with guid partition scheme)


I booted with -v option, this is what it says:


Package 0 didnt get an HPET (says this like 15 times in a row)

panic (cpu 0 caller 0x2F040D50) no HPETS available....CPU(s) configured incorrectly


\n @ /sourceCode/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement Debugger called <panic>


Backtrace, format-frame:return address (4 potential args on stack)


then 3 lines of different memory addresses


backtrace terminated-invalid frame pointer 0

kernal loadable modules in backtrace (with dependencies) com.apple.drive.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (9.33.0) @ 0x2f052fff






Any ideas? im pretty syre I set all the correct bios options as the guide said.

I am also having this same problem. I started using -v and clearly saw a kernel panic. I am not at the location of this machine right now, when I am I will try to post the information.


I am really just wondering if anyone had resolved this issue? I'm almost certain it's going to be related to the hardware in the machine in regards to the drivers being loaded.


I only have this problem with 10.5, but I started off installing 10.4.6, it would just start with "b0 error" I set the partition as active and it still gave me the same error. 10.4.8 did the same thing with b0 error. 10.5 gives me this reboot error.

Sounds to me like you guys forgot to delete the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext file. You need to boot to a working OSX install and get into the terminal. Delete this file, repair permissions and reboot to see if that helps.
