10.4.10 install

Hi. I am hoping someone may be able to help me with a first time install of 10.4.10 on a PC. I am using TubGirl's AMD SSE3 version burned from disk utility on a MacBook.


The system specs of the PC I am trying to install to are:

Shuttle SK22G2B XPC box

Motherboard: Shuttle FX22V10

Chipset: VIA K8M890CE

Southbridge: VIA VT8237

Video: Onboard DeltaChrome 128 bit

Core: Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Windsor AM2 socket w/SSE3

HDD: Seagate 250 GB SATA

Memory: 2 GB Kingston 240-pin


When I boot from CD, the initial install screen come up fine. I load Darwin, press F8 for options, and select "-v" to see what is going on. Everything seems to go fine until I get the following lines:

"AppleVIAATADriver: VIA 8237 SATA (CMD 8xfe00, CIR 8xfd00, IRQ 20, BM 8xfa00)

IOATAController device blocking bus

AppleVIAATADriver: VIA 8237 SATA (CMD 8xfe00, CIR 8xfd00, IRQ 20, BM 8xfa00)"

Then the system just hangs "waiting on device".


Does anyone have a suggestion on how (or if) I can get this to work? I've really just had it with XP/Vista :) and want to run OSX natively on my desktop.
