Won't load insatlltion DVD.

Well, first off the hardware I'm using ran a vmware version of osx before fine, so I know the hardware is compatible with (at least what I had), and I checked as well and found it would work.


The issue is that when I attempt to run the insatlltion dvd, it pops up with the timer and scuh, so I hit a key, and it acts like it's going to load, but it just sticks right after copy right with:

I've been searching for hours (almost a day now of solid searching) for information on this issue, I've found a thread or 2 on here stating the 1966 error message right after copyright, but there was no helpful information posted on those threads and I didn't want to gravedig them by adding my problem to them (I hate adding meaningless posts on a thread like "same problem here, anyone know a solution please?" to a near month old thread).


I've tried the "-X Cpus=1" command, along with -v and it still won't boot.


I'm in the process of downloading a 10.4.6 prepatched iso JaS that might work.


If anyone could post a link or provide some information on how I could fix this problem I'd be greatful.


If all else fails I'll probably have to just buy a new system that would be compatible for sure (I hate buying brand name computers, >.>) or buy a new iMac if all else fails (I just really don't want to drop 1200+ dollars at the moment to get OS X running at least half way).




I cancelled the 10.4.6, and I'm currently download Uphuck 10.4.9 v1.4i revision 2
