[HELP] AMD IOApic0x21 Error (Nirsesh 10.8.2)


3 posts in this topic

After a succesful installation of MacOSX on my notebook (10.6.3) I wanted to take things to a next level. I downloaded Niresh 10.8.2 and burned on a regular DVD. After a run test in VMWare (which was succesful) I decided to install it on my harddrive.


So I made a HFS+ partition, made it primary and activated it via Gparted.


With a bright smile on my face I decided to boot my Niresh 10.8.2 CD and booted up to the bootloader.


Trying to start the installation with following flags:


amd -v


In the verbose mode I noticed that he reads my processor so I finger crossed but after 10 seconds he hangs on


IOApic0x21 (###:###*) Can't remember the numbers


So I had this problem before with a 10.6 distro and I wasn't able to bypass it. Downloaded iAtkos S3 and made a NAWCOM ModCD and added a different AMD kernel and booted up with no any problems.


Can anyone help me bypass this error?
