What is this?? How do i use it?

 

I have hardware that matches on: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.4.8

 

For my hardware it says:

'JaS 10.4.8 Install with Semthex Kernel then upgraded to latest Semthex Nebukadnezar Kernel'

 

How do i do this, sorry novice here... I have Jas 10.4.8. it installs but does not boot up.. no errors on screen, just does the normal hardware test on screen, then a flashing cursor...

 

Any thoughts? Greatly appreciated any feedback!! :)

Hi Lordlex,

 

Thanks so much! I have downloaded the update file from semthex.. now stuck again. Could you please direct me on the thread or page on how to install/patch this update? JaS 10.4.8 is installed but computer loads up and stays in the 'MSDOS' mode. no errors, just flashing cursor after hardware test.

 

Many big thanks!!!

after the bios prompt for del key, when the os boot (on some mobo after the bip) and a prompt is show on left up corner press F8. at the prompt type -v then press enter. paste here the last lines of the output.

BTW, when you installed the osx did you select osx10.4.8 update & the semthex kernel on dvd?

If you not, you can run installer again and update the instalation. If no kernel selected you can boot fron the dvd, after the installer is loaded you can find the Terminal application on Utils menu. Run it, then you can copy the kernel to your HDD:

cp /mach_kernel /Volumes/<YOUR OSX VOLUME NAME>/mach_kernel

change <YOUR OSX VOLUME NAME> with your volume name of the osx partion.
