Hey guys as the description made mention I have absolutely no right to be hacking a computer with my previous knowledge. However I always do this kind of stuff on a trial and error basis.

The latest of my endovers is obviously Mac on my PC.

I am wanting to get a Mac anyway but would like to run snow leo for a while before hand and make sure i can make the transition (I've always used windows)


Thus without further ado, here is the best i can scramble up:

Operating System

MS Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP2


AMD Turion X2 RM-72 65 °C

Griffin 65nm Technology


4.0GB DDR2 @ 400MHz (6-6-6-18)


HP 30F2 (Socket M2/S1G1)


Generic PnP Monitor @ 1280x800

ATI video (HP)

Hard Drives

244GB Hitachi Hitachi HTS543225L9A3 SCSI Disk Device (SCSI)

Optical Drives

Optiarc DVD RW AD-7560S SCSI CdRom Device


IDT High Definition Audio CODEC


Connected through Atheros AR5009 802.11a/g/n WiFi Adapter


I tried iATKOS 5i. I boot the disc enter -v and it runs some code then stops at: still unable to locate root device

So im not really sure where to go from here. Please help me out.




In reply to potential Mods, I am aware that there are other DV5 posts. However, the newest one I could locate was from January and I thought that it wouldn't hurt to start a specific topic here (rather than thread stealing from someone else)
