Hey, any other recommendations on an AMD installation?

I have been fiddling around with trying to get Mac OS X installed in a Virtual Machine (VMWare and Virtualbox), with the base system being an AMD machine. I was told to come here. So.. that is what I did. <img src="style_emoticons/default/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /><br /><br />Hope to find out some information.


Originally I was following this guide for the VMWare installation, however, after no such luck and only getting errors in VMWare... I decided to use VirtualBox. I got farther in VirtualBox, to the point that I could install, and after it rebooted, it went into a Kernel Panic.

So, now I am at a loss.

id use the nawcom mod boot cd. google it. its how i installed it on my AMD. use the latest legacy kernel (legacy_kernel 10.5.0)


lets get some specs of your system. processor, motherboard, chipset, video card, audio card, etc.


also, maybe you mentioned it, maybe not. how are you installing? from a retail snow leopard dvd, or from a distro? ive noticed the nawcom boot cd makes it easier to install than a distro, because it typically auto-selects your chipset drivers and kernel, unlike with a distro.


i have an AMD hackintosh running almost 100%, just trying to figure out the cause of some QE/CI lag.

in other words: ill help you get yours going!

Read again, he's asking for help installing OS X in a virtual machine, not on real hardware.


yeah, wouldnt he be able to use a boot cd on a VM to get it installed? im fully aware that he is attempting to install on a VM, not real hardware. i just hope i dont sound stupid by suggesting a boot cd for a VM to boot off..
