Hi mediamac


OS X likes a USB keyboard and a USB mouse, rather than PS/2 or USB and PS/2 combinations. Are you using a USB keyboard and a USB mouse? If so, then:


1. Check your USB BIOS settings against my 680i BIOS template (links in my nForce OSX Snow Leopard topic)


2. Confirm that with >3GB RAM installed you are using slashack's AppleNForceATA.kext


3. Run some extended tests when booted using -v cpus=1 maxmem=2048 debug=0x100 debug=0x144

Hi Verdant,

Thanks for your reply.I have USB keyboard and mouse.


1.BIOS i will check with your posts.

2.I have more than 3GB ie 4GB

3.The system runs fine with cpus=1 but i am limiting the power of the CPU and it also runs little slow.


The panic causes suddenly when i lose the internet connection which i have to blame on the RTL 8139 which is not yet resolved.There is no solution for this PCI 8139 NIC.so i have to check with new ethernet PCI or as you told i have to use 8169 model.
