AMD x2 64 Athlon +3800 Snow Leopard

Recommended Posts

Hi, I finally got a fairly successful SL install on my AMD PC, I'm running Hazard 10.6.2:

 

AMDx2 64 Athlon +3800

abit motherboard nforce chipset

Nvidia 9800GT 1GB

 

Anyways, everything works fine, I can't find any problems with the OS running on my PC except for when I try to install large files or download large files (sized at least 5GB or above). I've tried downloading torrents and if the file is small enough it downloads quickly without any error. But when I try to download something large I get a kernel panic. This also happens when I install something like StarCraft 2, or WoW for example it will install so far and than i will get a kernel panic every time, not always in the same spot though. I've taken a couple screenshots of the error which i've attached.

 

 

UPDATE: I found that this error also occurs when something is taking more processing power. I recently played World of Warcraft (after moving all files onto an external and transferring it over instead of installing it which also causes this same kernel panic.) and after about a minute or two or gameplay the same kernel panic occurred.

i think what's going on is that you're mobo might be overheating? did you try re-applying thermal paste? Also there might be a bug with large file transfers, by default Mac does not allow over 4GB to be moved.

I have an AMDx2 64 Athlon +5200, asus m2n sli deluxe with nForce chipsets & nvidia 8600 gt.

 

I had never had issues with larger files on my snow leopard by hazard, I have a TB hd for data.

Do you have ntfs for mac os x software?

May be the absence of it is causing this, however mac os x extended journaled allows more than 4gb, 4gb cap is for fat32 format.
