I tried the Jas 10.4.8, 10.4.6, 10.4.5

uphuck 10.4.9 v1.3

uphuck 10.4.9 v1.4i r2

ToH 10.5 Leopard


All of them rebooted instantly so I used the cpus=1 -v -x option to boot the install.

and for all the Jas and uphuck v1.4 versions and ToH Leopard, I got to the line "using 10485 buffers..." and the installation stops


Jas 10.4.8 installer worked for me before... but after trying 10.4.9 for a bit Jas installer stopped booting up.


The only version I could successfully install was uphuck 10.4.9 v1.3... but booting it up (with cpus=1 -v) results in the same "using 10485 buffers"


When I tried starting up with the cpus=1 -x -v command it stops with the Local APIC error kernal panic. I tried v1.3 with all sorts of different combinations of patches and settings, to no avail.


I read that one solution to the APIC kernal panic is to boot using the DVD (cpus=1 -v -x rd=disk0s3) and change my AppleAPIC.kext and AppleMPIC.kext to the 10.4.8 version... but that gives me the "using 10485 buffers" thing again with cpus=1 -v -x.


Does anyone have any other possible solutions?? Right now I'm waiting for uphuck's leopard to come out but I'm not too sure if it will work at all.. :)
