Kalyway 10.5.1 Problem

Recommended Posts



I spent half of today trying to install Mac OS X. Each time i've been getting a little closer but am as far as i can get it without some help.


My Problem

  • Disk boots up perfect.
  • Partioning works fine.
  • Installation seems to work fine ( lthough i have noticed when the progress gets to "about one minute left" it stalls for upto 5 minutes). Get the success message and restart.
  • Restarts fine get the welcome video and keyboard setup.
  • Next the transfer existing info screen (see image 1) and click "do not transfer" and continue. it then hangs for a couple of minutes.
  • Then i get the grey restart/shutdown screen and back to the welcome video.


My System

Dell Dimension 5150

Proccessor: Pentium 4 3.00 GHz (SSE3)

Video: ATi X600

Sound: Creative Sound Blaster live

HD: 250gb SATA


Settings for Install

Drive: Formatted 1 Partition Mac OS Extended (Journaled) - GUID

Cutomize: Only setting ticked BOOT_efi_GUID


Any info, tips, advice would be much appreciated.


Thanks Pete
