Hello :P

i'm new to the Hackintosh-thing, so i tried to install Mac OS X from a bought DVD with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], but it seems like, i have to enable AHCI in my Bios.

but i don't have the option there.

so if i try to boot i get the error: "still waiting for root device"

so, later i tried to boot from an efi empire boot disk, and i could install it, but only with the bootflag -x. :/

Just use raid, it turns on AHCI as well. and You'll need a different video card, that one won't work, which may explain why it won't work in all but safe mode.

just enter -v -x and press enter.

but since it's radeon 3600 SERIES and my setup for my dell pc says radeon HD 3650, and for the 3650 i can download, after the installation some kexts, can't i?

to get it to the point, where i am at the moment i tried many boot cds, and options in my BIOS, so don't be annoyed that fast :(

 

also, what does it mean for me, to start the installation in safe mode?

is this something bad?

or is it just because my graphiccard isn't suportet?
