How about including your system specs? It's a little difficult to diagnose problems when no one knows what other hardware you're working with...

 

wow im sorry i thought i did that

 

ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3

AMD Phenom II X6 1075T 3017.7 mhz

4 gigs of ram >.>

NVidia Geforce GT 240

Windows 7

Hi. I just had a moment of enlightment. ;) I have a AMD quadcore CPU and a lot of problems with OSX. ONE big problem at boot had its orgin in AMD-V. Turn it off in bios if its on and try to boot osx again.

 

( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86_virtualiz...ion_.28AMD-V.29 )

 

i couldn't find anything about virtualization in my bios so i turned off some things and tried it again but got the same error or hang screen

no, its ok. stop trying. it won't work like that. you are trying to boot a modded dvd from 2008 on 2010/11 hardware and its not a apple.

 

alright... so my computer is too new for mac?

 

 

which bootcd SHOULD i use?

i have the same board as you. My specs are:

M4A88TD

Phenom II X2 550 BE

4Gbs of ram

XFX HD5770 Gfx card

 

I installed booting with Nawcom Mod CD 0.3.1 and using Iatkos S3 v2.

I used all the default options and added goopz 10.3.0 kernel and under drivers VIA SATA/IDE

and i removed all the sound drivers because they did not work for me. After it installs and you reboot with -v -f flags i updated to 10.6.6 using update combo 10.6.6 from apple and legacy kernel 10.6.0 and that got my gfx card working. then using kext helper 7b i install this kext for the onboard ethernet

http://www.kexts.com/view/513-realtek_rtl_...now_32-64k.html. All i need is to get the sound working and be able to boot in 64bit because for some reason it boots in 32bit. I hope that helps and let me know your results.
