The cpu has been disabled, please help!

I've installed this version fine "Mac.OS.X.Tiger.10.4.6.X86-HOTiSO" but whenever I try to boot it states the cpu has been disabled by the guest machine and says it has to restart. I have no idea of a way around this or a fix.


Can anyone help!?!


Thanks in advance :D

I too had this problem... I read some place about the kernal patches not being applied correctly. It was pretty easy to fix... reboot from the install disc, open a terminal (I think from the utilities menu) and type


cp mach_kernal /Volumes/disc


reboot and I was cool for school... When I installed osx I named my disc "disc", the name on your system will be different.


hope that helps.

also had this problem... did the thing cprime suggested, however still receiving the same error message. i'm assuming the mach_kernel file is from the dvd right?
