Cannot Install on AMD Mobo. HP 425

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I tried everything and I can't install Snow Leopard in my laptop! :( I tried with some distros like iAtkos, iPC etc. In my last try I used Empire Efi for AMD (Legacy Boot) + retail... but i get kernel panics! Usually it stucks in: Unable to find driver for this platform:

\"ACPI\".\n"@/Extra/builds/xnu/xnu-1456.1.26/iokit/Kernel/IOPlatformExpert.cpp:1393.

 

I tried with -x cpus=1 busratio=19,20,21 but it don't works!

 

Can anybody help me?

 

Specs:

Chipset AMD RS880M

AMD Athlon II Dual-Core P320 (2,1 GHz, 1 MB L2 cache)

ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4250

HP 425 Laptop http://h20000.www2.h...odTypeId=321957

 

Infinitely thanks!

Check out the guide in my signature. That uses the OSx86 ModCD, which is now recommended by Prasys (the creator of EmpireEFI).

Is this actually a retail DVD or a distro? The ModCD only works with retail discs (bought or downloaded), not any distro (like iAtkos, Hazard etc.)

I think you may need a different kernel. I'll look one up and post it here with instructions. :)

try doing what it says for modcd. Type rd(0,0)/Extra/legacy_kernel or whatever it says (can't remember off hand). If it still gives you problems, type that again and append -force64 to the end.
