Hi,

 

I tried installing with the iDeneb Boot-DVD. Durning the install everything still went fine, but after boot it hangs at

mDNSResponder mDNSResponder-176.2 (Aug 15 2008 14:58:54)[32]: starting
/usr/sbin/ocspd[77]: starting

.

 

HD is in AHCI mode, onboard LAN disabled, I also tried booting with a removed PCIe LAN, but every time the same.

I flashed my BIOS with 1611_BIOS_Asus_P5Q_for_MAC_all_OS_by_Juzzi. At the installation i selected: no audio driver, no ethernet driver, the ICH chipset, no special kernel and all in Fix.

 

My specs:

Asus P5Q

Intel Q6600

GeForce 9600GT

D-Link DGE-530T

 

//edit: iATKOS says: "still waiting for root device"

You need to set the Storage SATA Configuration in Bios as AHCI

Which installation are you trying to install..... IDeneb 10.5.5 ?

 

For Ideneb:

 

1) Flash you Bios with the Modded Bios

2) In the Bios you need to change the Storage Configuration to AHCI

3) Now Boot iDeneb using -v

4) Now Format the Drive as MAC OS Journaled in which you want to install Mac OS X and click Next

5) Now Click on Customize I selected the following option

i. Selected X11

ii. I did not select any Kernel since iDeneb keeps Vanilla as Default

iii. In Apple SMBios I selected Apple Mac Pro

iv. In Video I selected Nvkush and the RAM Size

v. Also selected all the Extra Softwares

6) Once it is done try to boot in to MAC OS X.

7) If you are not getting the Boot Menu then you can try Easy BCD Software

Now I made it to get into Mac OS with -x after install. But I'm not able to boot normally anymore, though I installed the kext for my D-Link DGE-530T.

Here is the mDNSResponder-message on which it hangs:

Try this one

Open Disk Utility, select the drive in which you have installed the Mac OS X. Now click on Verify Permission and then once it is done click on Repair Permission. Let me know if it works

Congrats................

 

So what did you do to solve the problem.......

 

To mount the FAT Partition, first boot into Windows run a Disk Check and then Boot into Mac

Which Kernel did you select while installing iDeneb?

 

While I was installing iDeneb I did not select any kernel, that is because iDeneb keeps Vanilla Kernel as Default and I wanted the Vanilla Kernel

Just delete the IOPCCardFamily.kext.

I found this from this Forum and dont forget to restart

http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=44394

 

If that doesn't work then try to install iDeneb once again with different kernel or try to install iAKTOS
