Hi community,


I try to install Niresh Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on my laptop HP DM1 4136SF (release in 2012).


Here's my config :

• CPU : AMD E-450 dualcore (1.65Ghz)

• Chipset : AMD A50M FCH

• RAM : 4 Go

• HDD : SATA 500 Go

• Graphic processor : AMD Radeon HD 6320 



The installation is performed correctly, but at the first boot i have a Kernel Panic. (see pictures)






I can boot my pc only with the bootflag "-x" (Safe Mode),







I think the problem isn't critical, but i can't found the issu at my problem...


So, i hope, you can be help me in my step.

Guys so far here is what I figured out.


regarding the booting problems,


1. we can try different flag combinations (PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No -x). Note : the flag(s) which worked for me might not necessarily work for others.


2. for blank screen, flickering screen try a different video cable (DVI), for me it made no difference until I removed the Galaxy GeForce 630 graphics card and continued.


3. disconnect everything except, monitor, keyboard, mouse & of course CPU ;)


4. try to get a "Patch" for DSDT for your motherboard, there are guys who can create that for you.


5. finally in my case unfortunately I get "Install Failed" no matter what ever i do as said above. but Mac can boot ONLY in safe mode. As i had other things (projects) to work on I will stop working on Mac issues further


All the best.
