Netbook stuck in Boot Loop - Unable to patch 64 bit kernel!

Hi guys,

 

I recently installed mac os x 10.6 on my Acer D255 netbook (1.6ghz atom + 1gb ram) and everything is working perfectly, including sound and trackpad, etc. Well everything except wifi but I have swapped the card so it is fine. Its the perfect little machine except I combo updated to 10.6.6 and now I get stuck in a BOOT LOOP :(

 

When I turned the computer on it goes grey and gives me a message saying:

 

"Please use arch=i386 to use a 10.6.2 or newer kernel"

and also a "Hibernate image" error.

 

It's just two lines of text - then the computer shuts down and restarts and gives me the same message again, then shuts down and restarts.. you get the point.

 

Any ideas on how to fix this? Your reply would be greatly appreciated :D

F8 while booting, when you see the disk, type: -v cpus=2 arch=i836
