Nawcoms ModCd + Retail

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi There,


So here goes, I got installation completed using this method:


Put in ModCd and USB (with retail on) >>> Boot into the modcd >>> Went over the mac osx installer >>> typed (arch=i386 busratio=17 cpus=1 npci=0x2000 rd(0,0)/Extra/modbin_kernel -v) I have tried lots of others but this is the only on that worked.


Now im in OSX retail installation >>> Format hard drive >>> Clicked customized (Any help on what to tick here would be great) I took a guess at what to tick >>> rebooted.


The next part im unsure of, do I leave the modcd in and type boot flags over the OSX or do I take the disk out and try flags in chameleon over the OSX?


1) Leaving the modcd in.

Tried many different combinations of flags and I get mainly 2 kernel panics.

i) Stops at minit (64mb....

ii) Double panic (CPU,0).....


2) Take modcd out.

No flags gives me apple logo and stops.


i) Kernel panic showing a kext? (Maybe this is the issue?)

ii) Plain black screen. (Monitor is on as I can see the back light)



Somebody please help me, I feel like I am so close.

Thanks Scott.
