Hey everyone, first post here. I'm trying to install Mac OS X86 10.4.6 jar ver, i got my partition set as primary, 10 gigz, but when i go to boot from the disc it just stays at the grey apple screen, so i went into diagnostic mode. Once I was in diagnostic mode i got the following error


AppleNVIDIAnForceATA: NVIDIA CK85 IDE (CMD 0x170, CTR 0x374, IRQ 13, BM 10Xe008


Still waiting for root device... and that continues


-Is this because it doesn't recognize Sata/2 drives? Or another problem?


My system -


DualCore AMD Athlon 64 X2, 2300 MHz (10 x 230)

Instruction Set x86, x86-64, MMX, 3DNow!, SSE, SSE2, SSE3

MSI K8N Neo4 Series (MS-7125)

1 GB OCZ in DUAL channel

Chip set - South Bridge nVIDIA nForce4 (CK8-04

Maxtor 6L250S0 250 gig

Well...here u go.


First make sure u have the patched version of Jas ....


1) add a boot parameter rd=disk0s* where * is ur partition no. if it is on the first partition then rd=disk0s1


this shud work.


If not,go to bios n see if ur DVD drive is set to master or slave n not cable select.
