Installation troubles

Hello All!

I decide to install MAC OS on to my machine by pure curiosity (now is madness :) ), but this make me headache :P

My PC has following configuration -


MB - Intel DG33BU

CPU - c2 quad Q6600 - 2.4GHz

RAM - 2x1GB KIT Kingston - 800Mhz

HDD - seagate 320GB SATA II

CD - DVD Optiarc - 7203 - SATA

Video - internal MB video - GMA 3100 (it is not GMAX3100)


As I'm convinced, that your answer will be - google it or RTFM!, I want to tell you - its done.

I've read a couple of tutorials about install MAC OS in to non mac machine, but the final result is.. frozen system.


I need to tell you that the BIOS is configure exactly step by step from tutorials (BIOS is updated to the last version up to today):


Max CPUID Value Limit - disable

Configure SATA as - AHCI

S.M.A.R.T - enabled

XD Technology - Enable

Intel Virtualization Technology - enable

ACPI Suspend State - S3 State


I was try every variations of boot parameters without any luck :(

This is part of my last lines when i try to boot:

parameters: -v -f


Waiting for boot volume with UUID ...........

ACPI_SMC_CtrkLoop::initCPUCtrlLoop - pmCPUControl (PMIOCSETPSTATETABLE) returned 0xffffffff


Distro is iDeneb 10.5.4... Loaded kernel when boot is - Darwin Кernel Version 9.2.0: Sun Mar 2 00:11:08 SCT 2008; made by ToH:xnu-1228/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_I386

This is a picture ... partal picture of my boot screen - dsc00022sm2.jpg

Sorry for my poor english.

update -v did not work for me..

Its loop me to the F8 screen again and again...

Any other ideas?

Can i use different kernel while boot? If It is possible - how to see available kernels on install DVD?

Is there related switches for ACPI, but not "platform"?




as soon as it boots press F8 i know you have done this many times by now..



now just try this after F8



update -v



sometimes a slight orifice is able to break a dam!!1
