Hi all,

 

i'm trying to get OSx86 working native, but it doesn't want to run in "normal" mode.

Only safe mode key (-x) helps. Now i'm trying to localize the error.

 

Please take look at these peaces of system.log:

 

Starting with "-v" only... Hangs up:

Now starting with "-v -x"... No Problems:

Do you have an ATI card? If so, delete all ATI kexts in the System/Library/Extensions folder, including the folder NVDRV.

 

If you have an NVIDIA card, remove all the GeForce/NVIDIA kext's too. Apparently, they are only large because they only are "stubs" in the i386 binary part (need more source information on this, i doubt that it's true, haven't checked.)

Perhaps some-one knows why my system won't boot in normal mode (although it does boot in normal mode using vmware directly mapped to my physical hard drive).

It boots perfect in safe mode; after investigating the system.log I cannot exactly determine the error. When booting diagnostically I can read something close to: "RegisterProcess failed (err.268435459)" and a bit later "failed to name Mach port". There are more errors but perhaps someone recognizes the problem from these errors

 

The strange thing is that when I boot from VmWare (directly mapped to my physical harddrive thus not from the Deadmoo's Image) i can boot in normal mode but I do not have to Login :blink:

 

Any help would be appreciated
