I am trying to acheive a native install by installing through VMWare. i have been at this for days and cannot get it to boot. Ok i have an asus a8r32-MVP mobo (ULI 1575 SATA controller). athlon 64 X2 4200+, ATI x1900xt, 2 gigs of ram and 3 SATA hard drives.

 

i have no idea what is wrong.

it goes all the way to say its starting the starting the login window application then after that it says

localhost config[50]: Wireless AirPortDeviceNameCopy(): no AirPort driver found. and it just hangs there. i can even hear the music that plays when you first start up.

 

I am installing in VMware with these options:

Guest OS Type: Other -> FreeBSD

Memory: 512MB

Hard Disk (IDE 0:0): Independent-persistent 8GB Emulated Pre-allocated

CD-ROM (IDE 0:1): Using D-Tools emulated drive (H:)

Floppy: Disabled

Ethernet: Bridged

Audio: Auto detect

Virtual Processors: 2

 

i am using the JaS Mac OS 10.4.7 intel/amd ISO and under customize installation i checked both the AMD things and both ATI things

you guys have any clue what might be wrong ? thanks

I've gotten that, sometimes for no reason, but most of the time it could be fixed by repairing disk permissions in VMware. put the install disk into the VMware machine, and then open disk utility when you can and repair the disk permeissions.
