I made a topic some months ago, but lately I've been trying this again, so here's a list of everything I know and don't know about OSX86 - I'm hoping this will become a definitive how-to guide for AMD (and specifically Asus Motherboard) people. :thumbsup_anim:

 

- Okay, so first off, I have Kalyway 10.5.2 AMD/Intel burned to a DVD-RW.

 

- I tried numerous installations previous, including iAtkos and Leo4All.

 

- I also tried numerous boot locations, the two most important being both an internal and external DVD drive.

 

- I have only a vague understanding of Kexts and Kernel modification - all the info I found on it seems to be aimed towards those already familiar with it.

 

- As above, I think perhaps I need to modify a Kext (there is an ADD-KEXT-TO-DVD folder with Kalyway), but I don't know what I need or how to go about this.

 

- Booting the DVD produces one of two errors, either "AppleNForceATA: Found 0 Units", or "Still Waiting For Root Device".

 

I tried disabling SATA, switching to an IDE DVD drive, IDE HDD, and back to SATA. Nothing seems to work.

 

And now my system specs:

 

Asus M2n MX-SE Motherboard

AMD Athlon X2 4800+

250Gb SATA HDD

External Samsung USB DVD drive

Geforce 8600GT

 

Many thanks in advance, hope we can get it going this time. :D

 

Update!

 

Upon reburning the DVD, I now an error that goes something like this:

 

AppleNForceATA: Found 0 Units

ApplePS2Keyboard: Probe Failed

ApplePS2Mouse: Probe Failed

AppleNForceATA: sata phy reset done

 

Worth mentioning I'm using USB keybaord etc by the way. :)

Unfortunately, that guide is for a machine a bit too different to mine - I'm on SATA, not IDE.

 

However, I DID boot using -v and got a new result. First, I got:

 

AppleNForceATA: Found 1 Units

 

Followed by about ten or so lines of errors. The biggest I saw were the following:

 

Phy Connection Failed

 

Unable to Take Control From BIOS

 

AppleNForceATA: Found 0 Units

 

And then, after a moment, Still Waiting for Root Device. :)
