Kalway 10.5.1 Install Problem on Sony Vaio TX Series

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I downloaded teh Kalway 10.5.1 iso image and burned it to a disc using PowerISO. Everything burned fine. I go to boot from the CD, after roughly a minute, it just stops loading and the last line is this:


"Loading HFS_ File: [/system/Library/Extensions/PMUMotionSensor.kext/Contents/Info.plist from 4230480"


after a while, i got this


"Loading HFS_ File: [/system/Library/Extensions/PPP.kext/Contents/Info.plist from 4230480"


should i just keep waiting and hopefully wait it for boot? i heard somethin bout pressing f8 at the start and typing cpus=1, should i try that? Im sorry im asking but if it takes a long time for the boot CD to get to the installer, i dont wanna keep on shutting it off and on trying different things if time is the only factor involved.


Here are my specs

My sony Vaio VGN TX630P runs on SSE2, thanks alot to everyone in advance.


EDIT: i just checked out the screen again and it had this error


"EBIOS read error: Device Timeout

Block 6856136 Sectors 64"


could this mean the boot CD file is corrupted? any help is always appreciated

hm....i would not want to delete the kext file if it is not a kext file problem...looks like a bootdisc file corruption more than anything, but i tried burning it again at 4x speed and that one didnt even load the HSF files, getting new scratch free DVD-R's tomorrow, hopefully they will work...until then....i am always open for help and suggestions, thank you Bedok

so does anyone have any suggestions?


I had similar problems with the the same disk.

I downloaded the 10.5.2 disk (complete, not the upgrade) and hit F8 at the prompt.

Type -x and then hit return, and that made it work for me.


I have the Alps Pointing Device, and it works fine, usually. I can't get it to recognize a tap as a click, and occasionally the track pad will freeze up - I just plug in a USB mouse and keep going. Restart if I feel like it.


The exact title of the file you're looking for (try a search for Kalyway at mininova.org) is this:

kalyway leopard 10 5 2 dvd intel amd 4122511 tpb


Note that it is spelled Kaylway, not Kalway as in the title of this thread. I made the same mistake myself before.


Hope this helps!
