downloaded tubgirl's 1049 patch, applied it to tubgirl's 1048 AMD iso.

verified the checksums, burned DVD and booted.


booting went fine till it was time to recognise harddisks,

then the error message.

disk0 I/O fail

disk0 I/O fail

disk0 I/O fail

disk0 I/O fail


four times maybe because i have four partitions.

sitll booting continues, but when time to use diskutility, the utility shows the whole drive but not individual partitions.


my spec

AMD athlon 64 x2 4000+ am2

biostar nf61s am2 se

samsung 80 gb IDE


what boot options can i choose to make the disk mount with the partitions intact.


PS : i have used jas 1048 and that iso detects all the partitions correctly.

i could install to my desired partition.

Thank you for these useful info..

1) I have been trying to install 10.4.9 uphuck 1.3 since 7:00 last night. I previously had a 10.4.6 installed,

which was fine except that it did not have AppleVIAATA and the USB driver failed for the Mac Mouse

I thought I would be able to easlily get 10.4.9 1.3 installed.


2) First, the installer kept FAILING. This was partially due to me choosing the wrong drivers, but it kept doing

it even when I had the right drivers. But last night I finally got it to go all the way in.


3) Then it rebooted and promptly showed me a prompt that said "boot: - " which still said "Boot:" after about 30 minutes

and I realised then that it was gonna still say "boot:" after another 30 minutes.


4) after 3 or 4 more fresh installs where I followed the instructions for prepping the disk exactly as XxX wrote

in one of his PDFs, I am now getting a perpetual "Hard Disk Not Found" cos now the *&*^% ^%&^&%^ is

not mounting after the install



Because of the above, I am now going to MELT the Up[c]huck OSx86 10.4.9 version 1.3 DVD on my STOVE. Or maybe I will just break it into tiny bits with my hands.




I suppose I can just put the other 10.4.6 version in, but I can't use my Mac Keyboard with it, it chokes on the mouse.


I am not sure who made the 10.4.6... It may be a real Intel Mac disk, cos it looks a lil different.


I do have XxX's 10.4.11 at 85%- Hopefully that will install cos I gots to have 10.4, as 10.5 will not support Pro Tools 7.5
