Acer Veriton 5600G hangs during first run mac setup

Recommended Posts

I have installed iDeneb v1.3 on my Acer Veriton 5600G. In the configuration I added all the network drivers and left everything else unticked.

It installs fine and boots to the first run setup thing. I choose my keyboard, language, location, but then when i get to the Import Mac page and click continue it hangs.

 

I think this is where it tries to initialize the network card but I'm not sure.

 

Is there some way to get OSX to boot without initializing the network?

 

The machine has onboard gigabit ethernet and a pci wireless card.

lspci lists this in linux:

ok i got a RTL8139C based ethernet card but the bootup still hangs after the "Import existing mac" screen.

 

So i'm thinking there's a different problem.

 

My motherboard is a MicroStar model MS-6772 board but i can't seem to find that anywhere on the hardware lists.

 

Anyone got any ideas on what i should try?

 

cheers
