here are my specs on my desktop:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+

1 gb of ram

1 300 gb hd - partitioned to 1 40 gb, and then the rest

1 80 gb hd

nvidia 6600GT

i can't even get to the install screen. should i unplug one of my hard drives?



Well, it might to know what sort of hd you have! Is it IDE or ? Also, what sort of kb and mouse (pci/usb)? Anything else connected to the mobo?

People are reporting that SATA on nForce 4 does not work. :(


Is not just a report, if you read the source code of the AppleOnboardPCATA you only see nForce 1, 2 and 3 PATA included, SATA is only on Intel ICHs and VIA kexts.


Even if you want support for nForce 4 PATA with DMA you need to modify the kext for it.

well i unplugged the mouse, and still same error.


usbf: 44.330 appleusbehci[oxc2071000]: not able to take ownership of EHCI controller


then there's other usb errors


then it trys to debug, and says no debugger device, and then it just sits there


do you think it's a usb controller for the front of the case? i have 2 usb ports on the front of the case, should i unplug them?

so you got it to work on an X2? i disabled the usb in the bios, but i'm still getting this error:

SAM Multimedia: READ or WRITE failed, ASC = 0x11, ASCQ = 0x00


i get that error 5 times in a row.

i also get : nfs_boot_init failed with 6


then it 'panicks'
