Does anyone know how to fix the spinning / error which shows in kalyway installation an spinnin / before it reboots again in an cycle? :(



acer aspire, intel 845i, p4

Brookdale-G Graphics Chip Accelerated VGA BIOS

512 ram

wriemaster SH-S182

EFI: Is it needed???

Note: my kalyway came with 2 isos, one in _MACOSX and Kalyway each. one is 60KB (?) and the pther is like 4.5GB

oh and there is 2 DS_Store files in each folder too. And I downloaded the efi_pack from http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=73952, but I an newbie at Mac on Pc so i don't really know what to do with the files in the zip


Method Number 2: Starting with out Tiger or Leopard.


This way is the same as you would post patch BrazilMac's leopard if you didnt have another tiger install.


Obtain the EFI file its now up to v8

Format your usb drive as FAT or FAT32 and Name it sumthing easy you can remember for this example im using 123.


Do all the same steps as follows above except do them in the leopard/tiger install DVD.

After you completed making them GUID even if you are in the install DVD you still need to unmount the partition so do so. When you enter the lines in terminal type this instead of whats above.

CODEcd /Volumes/123/pc_efi_v72

./startupfiletool /dev/rdiskXsY ./boot_v8

dd if=./guid/boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXsY bs=512 count=1

dd if=./guid/boot0 of=/dev/diskX bs=400 count=1

^^^^No, I don't get it... :)

I also have PC EFI v8.0 made by Netkas
