Stubborn Hardware?


8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have three different versions of OSX I have been trying to install in hopes that ONE will work... No avail. Now, I know AMD chipsets are more difficult from the beginning, and I get that, butI've never had these troubles with an AMD before. I have successfully installed OSX on a different computer before (before a hard drive failure of the century), and I still have the DVD from that, but that doesn't work either.

The three DVD's I have are as follows;

10.4.8 JaS

10.4.10 Kalyway

10.5.2 Leo4AllV3

All of which are stated as AMD compatible... Any clues at all? Need more specifics on the hardware? Help would be greatly appreciated... This is something I'm trying to put together for my girlfriend.

Probably a good choice to put your hardware info in your sig...people will flame you if you don't have it available if you ask for help. Hope that saves you from some pain later on :wacko:


That's actually the first thing we need to figure this out is your hardware info.
