Anyone running EFI/Vanilla and Pentium D?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

After about five leopard efi installs, I still haven't been able to get one to boot correctly. I have been thinking the problem is the way the motherboard is set up, but now I am thinking the problem is actually my processor which is a pentium D. Anyone out there running a Pentium D with the vanilla kernel and EFI emulation? I was able to boot my efi installation, but only by booting darwin from the install disc. Booting darwin from the hard drive results in a hard restart after selecting the partition to boot.

Erm.. lets get this straight.. pc-efi (often mistakenly called "EFI") works with all intel & clearly some AMD cpus.

 

Using the "vanilla" (plain Apple unmodified) kernel requires at least a core-series cpu, probably a core2 for all practical purposes. *As well as* the pc-efi bootloader.

 

GUID partitions can be used with pc-efi regardless of kernel choice, MBR partitions can be used with pc-efi or standard darwin bootloader.
