Intel pentium 4 northwood 2.4, mother soyo p4 dragon ultra, 512ddr2 333, hd samsung ata 40g, ide dvd player, ps/2 keyboard, usb mouse.


Installation method > ToH_x86_9A581_RC2, md5 checksum: OK.


Problem desc > begins installation with lots of "Loading HFS+ file" and after 1 minute or so it reboots. I'm pretty sure that it reboots after this:


Loading HFS+ file: [/system/Library/Extensions/TMSafetyNet.kext/Contents/MacOS/TMSafetyNet]




I didn' find any hardware incompatibility in the internet, just a problem with ultradma and sis5513 but people could install anyway.

I want to buy a mac and i would like to try it first. Help would be very appreciated, ideas, suggestions, anything!.

thankyou very much :(

well, i have installed 10.4.10 and everything went fine... just had to change the ethernets for a rtl8139 that had in another machine, my printer is working through hpjips becouse hp drivers dont work, and sound, everything!.

conclussion: soyo p4 dragon ultra completely supported but integrated ethernet sis900 in darwin 8.9.1.

for those people who where having the "start display failed" issue just start terminal from macos dvd and


cd /Volumes/"the name of the hd where you installed osx86"

cd /System/Library/Extensions

rm -R NVD* AGP* Natit*


quit installer and that should do it (you must have Titan.kext).
