Mountain lion GM reset after starting Darwin x86_64

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am trying to install Mountain Lion GM on my box that successfully runs 10.7.3.


Gigabyte EP45 series board, Quad core 2.66 Core 2 duo, 6 GB ram, ATI HD 4600.


Boot runs fine, all kexts etc are loaded, now at the very end if I film the boot I can

see after 'starting Darwin X86_64' my box resets.


Using Chameleon_2.1svn_r1823_ErmaC. Pretty default settings, I am only controlling

built-in ethernet and installing SMBios for a variant of the iMac (either iMac8,1 or 10,1).

My 10.7 installation runs on iMac8,1 smbios and recognizes the CPU as Quad-core Intel Xeon.


Any hints or way I can find out what's up ?

I have tried starting with -F -x -v, same results.


I did not normally need to do anything special with graphics for the 4670,

it used to work out of the box. So I am relying on the kexts for ATI that

came with the GM. Should I replace them ?
