i load in verbose mode..but theres alot of commands that popped up..here is the last 4 lines:


waiting for boot volume with UUID E4DAB38B-EB43-3C6E-B958-6BB5E4D14D87

waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key.<string ID="1">IOResources</string><key>IOResourceMatch</key><string ID="2">boot-uuid-media</string></dict>

Extension "com.apple.driver.AppleOnboardPCATA" has no explicit kernel dependency; using version 6.0.

i reinstalled ideneb lite..this time using the vanilla kernel..didnt even hang on the apple screen..just restarts my laptop..haha..so i guess its not the kernel..any ideas??


AMD processor won't work with vanilla kernel. You will have to reinstall with the kernel you used the first time.

Also disable or remove wifi card until you get your install done.
