Alright, this can probably solved easily


lets get down to business


my setup:


AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Socket 754

Gigabyte K8U Socket 754 motherboard ULi southbridge

1GB Ram

Nvidia GeForce 6600GT

BenQ CD drive

WD hard drive 80GB IDE



alright, i have JaS 10.4.8

i have a mac but i wanted to test out OSX 86,

it boots up, i get the blue screen, it asks for my language, english, then it gets to the disk utility page


i go to Disk Utility at the top (right?) and none of my hard drives are there.


what is wrong here?

i made a partition on my other hard drive for OSX (that is a slave), it should work right?


i also tried that drive as master a second time, still nothing.


what should i do?

What kind of partition? Is it a HFS+ partition? If not, that might be your problem why its not recognizing it. You might want to try out playing with VMware.


My rule of thumb: When in doubt, theres VMware, you can fake your hardware there, until you get proper drivers.
