Cannot Get into DVD installer


10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have an Awesome Little Mini-ITX(About the Size, Slightly smaller than a standard DVD drive) motherboard.. Here are the specs

-1GB DDR2 667 Ram (up to 2)

-Intel GMA 950

-Seagate 150gb Laptop Sata Hardrive

-Yonah Core Duo 1.66ghz Socket M (479)

-Sata DVD Drive (Same drive used to install LEO on Hackintosh 1 and 2 in my Sig)

-Small form Factor 300 Watt PSU

-The Motherboard is Jetway j9f2-khde-PB

-Chipsets: North 945GM. South ICH7-M


My Problem. These Specs seem Totally compatible (idk about the -m In ICH7 though, shouldnt be a big issue)

Well what happens is i load up Kalyways 10.5.1 DVD and it loads the apple loading screen fairly quickly. Then it gets to the blue screen which usually turns into the "choose language" screen.. but instead it says at that blue screen w/o a spining rainbow mouse, forever.


-Ive tried with both Sata and ide DVD drive.

-Ive Tried with various sata and ide settings on the bios.

-Ive tried with flags "cpus=1, and -v"

-I however have not tried any other DIsk Distros.


Does anyone know what may be going wrong? thanks

Trying with iAtkos now. Had to go into windows to burn it cause i get Kernel Panics when trying to burn it in Leopard. Anyone know why?

I was really hoping for Leopard. I will Test Tiger Later. iAtkos Booted into the CD unlike Kalyway but iAtkos stinks at settings up EFI and the Darwin bootloader. I can never get it to work. I go into the terminal and manually do it and it doesnt work. Thats why i want kalyway cause it just works.


well i tried uphucks tiger distro. No go.. same problem as with kalyway.. atleast the leo iatkos booted. I will try jas next.

Sorry for the post this is my second one but I've been around reading everything now it's my turn to give back.
