Hello Mates!I have have tried to install OS X 10.4.9 v. 1.3 on my laptop without succes :(The 1. Problem:When I boot from the DVD, and let the 8 seconds countdown at the Darwin boot-loader, its starts to load about 4 seconds and the Laptops restarts by itself....?The 2. Problem:I boot from the DVD, and press F8 at the Darwin Boot-loader. I type... -X Cpus=1well now its working, and I get into the OS X setup... I install it... after I finished with the installing I reboot. I let the Darwin boot-loader count down, and the grey apple screen comes... BUT it's spins like forever. I maybe think that this is a 5242 buffer headers and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers problem... But I'm not sure!Please Help, Thanks!I forgot the specefications.. Here they are...Intel Duo 2 Core T7200 (2GHz)2 GB 667mhz Ram100GB Sata HDATI X1600 256mbWant to know more... just say it :D

I can't remember where I saw the buffer problem, but it just frezz when it came to the 5242 buffer...

 

My laptop dosn't like the verbose funktion... It's just restarts my laptops after the 6 lines of loading.. :S

 

Have you heard about that problem...?

i feel your pain... i have tried both tubgirl 10.4.8 and 10.4.10, and uphuck 1.3 (wouldnt even boot the dvd) and i still get random lockups on my AMD machine. some of us just dont have the right mix of hardware for this {censored}. im probably just gonna build a cheap intel 915 machine. ive heard thats the most compatible mobo for OS X...
