I'm downloading iPC OSx86 Universal 10.5.6. What should I select in the installation menu?

Installed voodoo kernel in my iAtkos install and now it wont boot anymore..


Thank you very much for your help!

I had the iPC universal 10.5.6. But the install disc would not load on this machine. It would turn out to be a blue screen with the -v bootup switch. If I have the -x switch, booting from the iPC universal 10.5.6 would shutdown the nc6220 eventually.


Anybody has the similar experience? :whistle:

May I ask, exactly which release did you use?

I have just tried iATKOS V7 on HP nc6220, but the dvd wont boot . It gets up to a point and says IOATA Controller Blocking Bus,, unable to mount disk0s1....

and then it shuts down or freezes on a blue screen.

A little advice would be appreciated Thanks

Has anyone managed to get the sleep to work. I can go to sleep fine but I get a blank screen when I wake up from sleep on nc6220 running 10.5.6



Used Kext Helper to install AppleBCM5751Ethernet kext. MAC Address is all zeros. Also sleep is giving issues. Fan keeps running during sleep and the computer insists on going to sleep after a set time, even while I am working on it. How to fix that?
