Wow, seems quite a few are getting Debugger/Kernel panics...

 

I would suggest to you all that you make a seperate topic for them, because my knowledge of Darwin is extremely limited (I'm more of a GUI guy instead of command lines and code, etc...).

 

I'm sorry I can't help you guys anymore... It's strange that it works for some but not for others... It's all about hardware.

 

Once again, sorry... :D

thanks SABR,

it works almost perfectly on my pata drive.

 

only thing is the marvell yukon that is killing me, since in the drivers section, they are still in development and i dont know if i want to try something that is sort of risky.

 

LKU1, I found a topic that may interest you!

If you can boot the DVD manually, but not through VMWare, then why do you need to use it?

If i were to format the new parition that i jsut created, then it would remove the active partition from the other partition.

 

I did make a bootable CD for partition magic, so i can enter FDSIK and change the active partion, but i dont want to take any risks at all.

Well... I can't help you anymore then :(

 

You may have to use the bootable CD for Partition Magic... It should be fine.

 

I hope you get it sorted :)

Can I see a picture of it? Or atleast can you type out the main error in Verbose mode?

I would like to first thank SABR for a great guide. I have spent days trying to get OSX to install natively without any joy but had no problems installing onto a clean Drive using the VMWARE approach.

 

My problem is that now I have successfully installed OSX it crashes during the boot up with the following message.

 

My system is

 

AMD 64 3000+

2 Gig mem

Nvida 5700

 

OSX version JAS 10.4.6

 

I realise I have to repair permissions and run AMD enabler but I’m not able to do so.

 

I have selected the correct AMD options during boot up.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Regards

 

Jon

Hey Jonpage...

 

Thanks for the nice comments! I enjoyed making the guide....

 

Anyway, the problem your having is probably better off being talked about in a different section of the forum (PC Forum -- OSx86 Installation), since I am really no good with errors like the above. That is one of the main reasons I decided to make this guide - because it was a simple and easy way to install without having to go through command lines, etc...

 

I'm sorry I can't help you any further, however, I'm sure you'll get this problem solved if you ask here: http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showforum=18

I'm getting an I/O Error when I try to boot native after installing vmware. it seems to be running fine when it starts repeating "disk0s1: i/o error". It does boot in vmware perfectly though. Any help?

Not too sure what that's about... You might want to have a read here:

 

http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?sh...isk0s1+io+error

 

and then do some searching of your own. It does seem it's a problem that isn't too hard to solve. One guy in that thread says to use DiskWarrior: http://www.alsoft.com/DiskWarrior/

 

Good luck in getting it to work! ;)

Ok, I have done all the steps, and got the Chain0 file from the net, and installedd OS X to a partition on my ony Hard drive. Even after modding Boot.ini, upon boot, I have no option for OSX, and When I get back into XP, the boot.ini file is missing the last line of code, and looks like it did b4. Can u send me a chain0 file and your instructions on the boot.ini, just in case the ones I used were messed up? Thanks!

Hey... Glad it installed good for you!

 

I don't have those files, so you'll want to go here for information on chain0, boot.ini etc... http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=4749

Hmmm, there is a guy in the dual booting thread who had the same problem - but he has now fixed it. Go have a read here:

First off, thanks for the guide

 

Second off, when I tried to partition my DMA HD with the disk utility in the installer, I got an "Invalid Argument" error. Now it refuses to partition the disk unless I wipe it completely (windows install is on this drive) and in partition magic it shows my whole drive as unallocated space. What should I do?

 

Hardware:

Amd Athlon 64 3200+ venice

Asus A8N5X

1 gig Ram

10.4.4 Install disk

I too, get the "Your virtual machine has sent an ATAPI (CD-ROM) command that is supported only when programming the drive via DMA" error..

 

OS X installation then proceeds to hang. Others have mentioned that they got past this, but not how!

 

Anyone please?

 

cheers

Eventually worked it out, it's a bad disk image. Downloaded another and tried it, and now installing without any issues.
