Hi,

I saw on this page that my motherboard is compatible with Mac OS. So I tried to install using "[intel/AMD] Snow Leopard 10.6.1-10.6.2 SSE2-SSE3 Intel/AMD by Hazard", but I can't boot from cd because of this error:

AppleNForceATA sata phy reset done

Any idea?

 

Thanks,

Alex

I suggest you try the iATKOS S3 v2 Install DVD instead..........

 

Or a Retail OS X Snow leopard install using one of the AMD Snow Leopard Install Guides on IM.......

Have you set Legacy/Storage USB support to [Enabled] in your BIOS?

Or, is there not that an option.........?

Of course it was enabled

 

I asked because I want you to try with it disabled in BIOS..........also try with IEEE1394 disabled if present in BIOS.........

Disabling usb from bios is not an option for me. At some point, after booting from cd it ask me to press enter;

also, i dont have that option in bios -ieee1394

 

What do you see when you boot with -v.......?

attached ..

 

There are no error messages apparent but does the cursor freeze at that point?

if i boot without -v i can only see the apple logo (no cursor, no loading icon) - and nothing happens: no activity on dvd rom or hdd

 

My question was

 

"If you boot with -v, does the boot screen freeze at the cursor point shown in the screen shots you posted?"

Yes

 

It may be a problem with the AppleNForceATA kext that the Hazard Install DVD is loading at bootup...........specifically the SuperNForceATA kext......see my blog's Hazard install guide versus iATKOS S3 v2 install guide.........

Using iatkoa i have tge problem with usb hdd detection( mouse and keyboard are detected corectly)...

 

Suggest you try an AMD compatible Leopard distro then...........e.g. iPC 10.5.6, iATKOS 4a, LawlessPPC 10.5.4, IDeneb, XxX 10.5.6 Universal_Final, Leo4All AMD, iATKOS S3 v2, Ducky-Macosx86-10.5.4 build v.1.1x etc.......
