“You need to restart your computer” After Installation


4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I Installed Mac OS on my PC (After trying 2-3 images, I succefully installed "Snow_Leopard_10.6.1-10.6.2_Intel_AMD_made_by_Hazard")


I had problems like non-stop rebooting before install, so I used a Darwin image that I burned, booted on it and then switch to SL DVD.


I Installed with parameters cpus=1 busratio=20


After installation I had a blinking problem, I ran fdisk ... still not working so I reinstalled and then I succefully booted MAC !


Then I have a screen with “You need to restart your computer...” in many languages.


I wonder if I have to run mac with cpus=1 busratio=20 but how?


Config :

AMD Phenom II X4 840 - 3.2 GHz

MSI 870-G45

2x2Go DDR3

Sapphire radeon hd5770

After a reinstall with :

IOATAFamilyFix (Had panic)


AppleRTC (CMOS fix)


I managed to boot with cpus=1 busratio=16


I don't have this message anymore but I'm stuck on apple logo


When I enter -v, I don't see major problems :(

Reinstall from retail disk with nawcom mod cd. Use bus ratio =18 follow mendiethina guide on you tube retail install amd with nawcom mod cd. This will give you better results. I own the same cpu as you have amd phenom ii x4 840. I install retail with nawcom mod cd. update with combo update 10.6.7 and legacy kernel 10.6.7. So far, so good. no problems so far. good luck!!!!
