What did you use to format your HDD?

 

Disk Utility and I Deleted all the HDD Partions from Windows (un allocated space)

Thats not compatible you need at least 10.6.4 and possibly graphics update. With the correct "boot" loader.

 

Try [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 2.5 Unified Graphics Support

 

Then you should be able to install try following this method here.

 

Thanks, tonymac

I am already stuck at formating the SSD

i think that the HD5850 is not relevant to this problem at all

but it will be useful when i'm done installing MAC OS X

thanks for help ;)

and if u have any idea plz inform me

thanks in advance :D

You need a primary (active) partition formatted as HFS+

 

i formated the SSD with this program as HFS+

but i can't select this HDD to install mac on in Mac OS :)

although it is formated by HFS+ (not jornaled) cuz i can't find it in parted magic

and i used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and mac os still read the SSD as an external drive ;)

Solid State Drive? What does your bios settings say? try setting it to AHCI Native SATA.

what about BIOS Update ???

 

did you have another OS installed ?

 

if you can, please try a Linux Version, SysrescueCD !

 

and try to format your HD, to see if there's a similar Problem !

 

check the ' dmesg ' output, like :

 

dmesg | grep sd

I Already tried magic parted

but it only formates the SSD as HFS+ ( Not Journaled )

so i can't install mac os x on it

does this one make any differance

 

check the ' dmesg ' output, like :

 

dmesg | grep sd

 

 

can u explain further ?? :help:

if there's is a Hardware Problem, Linux will show you !

 

maybe you should try this Version:

 

PartedMagic !!!

this is really strange !

 

what about BIOS, it's a current one ???

 

and maybe there's a Firmware Update for the SSD !!!

 

with PartedMagic, please look if there are all the modules you need for ' hfs+ ' :

 

type :

 

lsmod | grep hfs

 

did you ever installed any kind of OS on this SDD ?

ok, please try just :

 

lsmod

 

and look if there's anything with ' hfs ', if not then you can load this modules :

 

modprobe hfs

 

and

 

modprobe hfs+

 

i don't know if ' macdrive ' can create HFS+ Partitions :unsure: !

 

did you try to install with only one SSD connected ?

 

in BIOS deactivate all the ' serial ' and unneeded stuff.

 

i'am really curious, why your kitten don't want to play with you :D;):( !!!

i read somewhere that ' journaling ' format with Linux is not possible !!!

 

when you about to format inside the OSX installation, what does the ' Installer Log ' say ???

 

there's really something wrong !

 

is there any ' IDE ' Hardware in your System ???
