Searching for success in boot options (Install DVD)

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, in advance I'd like to thank all users who take the time to read this post and those who reply with any information. I only have basic skills in regards to working with *nix systems. The DVD i've been using to try and install OsX is Kalyway 10.5.2. Here's an outline of what I have, and what I've tried to do.



Processor: Intel Core i5-3570k (LGA 1155)

Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Gene

Ram: 16GB Corsair DDR3 Part No. CMZ8GX3M2X1600C7

Graphics: Intel Integrated HD 4000 (I also have tried everything listed with an alternate GeForce 8800 GTS)

Disk Drive: 320GB Toshiba MK3265GSXN


Error Encountered

Kernel panic on installation disk boot.



Troubleshooting Methods Tried

- I have already enabled AHCI for SATA

- I've also tried all combinations of the folowing boot options (kernel followed by boot option) by hitting F8 at the initial Darwin boot screen









Question that still remains


I have searched this, but haven't found an easily understandable answer about kext files. Are they similar to the equivilent of a MS dll file?


If I've posted in the wrong section please let me know!

I know it isn't spelled out clearly in certain how-to docs, but the main problem is that your i5-3570k CPU is so new that it isn't supported by older versions of OSx.

When people say "Ivy Bridge" CPU that means the 4-digit model number starts with a 3. So to make this easier for you, either get a newer OS, or an older CPU.
