"double panic" error

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to get the OSx image to work on my system:

Motherboard: Via K8M800

Processor: Athlon 64 3200+ Newcastle 2.2ghz (only SSE2)

Video: NVidia GeForce MX 4000


but when i boot it up (no options) i see the apple background, but then it fades out, and there's some "double panic" error that repeats down the screen


when i boot it up with the -v -x options, it says something like:


Panic(cpu 0 caller 0xC017F652)

timeRDTSC() calibration failed with 50 attempts


>more to it, but from what i see, that's the relvent part<

and then it just hangs...


it shouldn't be a problem with the CPU though, because i know that other people have already got it working with AMD64, so i'm thinking it might be a BIOS problem (mmm, don't quite remember what version of phoenix i have... i'll look it up later)


Thanks in advance for all the help, and I've gotta say, the guides here are amazing...

i'm also getting this error sometimes at startup, in my case it says it fails calibration after two atempts.


i have to reboot the computer several times until i finally get into osx


Mobo: A8V-VM SE (VIA K8M890) bios ver. 702

CPU: Athlon X2 4200+


i use kernel ToH 8.9.1


i don't remember getting this error on 8.8.1 kernels


@jlin64: what kernel version do you use?
