Kernel Panic/No colour

Recommended Posts

Hi guys (and girls!)


I was reading about the wonders of OSx86 and decided that ill 'give it a go!'

I downloaded the Mac OS X v10.4.8 JaS Intel/AMD SSE2/SSE3 w/ PPF1.

I booted the DVD and it loaded up, but was in Black and White! The background was not blue, it was grey, the little spinning rainbow was about 12 shades of grey! Etc, Etc. Anyway, by using one of the many guides on the net, I managed to format, install, and keep my original HDD out of the pic. (I installed on a seperate 20GB drive!) ANYWAY, I want to triple boot with XP, Vista and Mac. (Eventualy with Ubuntu aswell, so a Quad-Boot) At the moment, I cant Mac to appear in my boot loader so I just boot from the hard disk (see link below for video) and then I get this rather scary error message, which appears to my 14 year old knowledge, as a 'Kernel Panic'. I have included a video, with the screen, and filmed as much as I could...


My specs:

Acer Aspire

Intel P4 2.8GHz

786MB Ram

Intel 82865G Intergrated Graphics

160GB Seagate Barracuda (With XP/Vista Dual-Booted Properly - NTFS - 2 Partitions)

20GB Seagate 'something!' (With Mac installed)


Any help to get this thing to boot/make the install dvd look right would be fantastic,


Thanks in advance,




P.s. Link to video:

The 82865G will not work.


I tried so many different setups and drivers and none worked - I just got a new PC :)



Dam! I really wanted this to work!! Is there any way I can do to make this work??

Plz, anyone else had this problem. I really need this to work!

why not try to load mac os x by windows bootloader,

search tboot or chain0 in google, the latter one is better.

then, put a line in your c:\boot.ini , copy the tboot or chain0 in C also,

then, add a line in boot.ini

c:\tboot="Mac OS X"

that should work, cus your dvd could install darwin loader correctly

as i remembered
