Installed 10.5.1, now it hangs at first apple screen

So I installed 10.5.1 from the Kalyway disc onto my HP DV1000, and now upon the initial boot, it loads the Darwin Bootloader, and then when it attempts to boot the OS, it just gets to the white screen with the mac logo, and then my computer promptly reboots, starting the whole thing over. I've tried just about every loading option from the Darwin command line I could find in the forums, but nothing changes anything. I can't post a -v report, because it doesn't sit still long enough to read it. It loads a bunch of files, then reboots. As near as I can tell it's loading the extensions folder, but I can't be certain, as the text is racing by faster than I can read, and then it disappears.

 

I'm not even sure my hardware is capable of running Leopard, but I couldn't find anything anywhere specifically saying that it was INcompatible, so I figured it was worth a shot. If I'm wrong please let me know and help me find a more suitable version to install.

 

The install went smoothly. In the Kalyway installer I selected the drivers that fit my hardware closest, and selected both the vanilla kernel and acpi fix. I partitioned my drive via the disk utility, selecting MBR, and then selected the MBR version of EFI.

 

At first I thought it was a video driver thing, since my card wasn't in the list of drivers in the Kalyway installer, but I'm pretty sure that's not the issue at hand now.

 

I've hooked the HD up to my external enclosure and can browse the filesystem, but I don't know enough about the OS structure to know what to look for/add/change.

 

Any suggestions would be helpful!

Ok so I got past the autoreboot cycle issue by loading tohkernel in the darwin command line.

 

Now it just hangs when it loads. It loads for about a minute, then the little progress circle on the apple screen stops, and it sits there indefinitely, with no HDD activity.

 

Having used the -v command, here's what I see, though I don't know enough about OSX to know what the problem is.

 

with bootloader options: 'tohkernel cpus=1 -v' it hangs here:

with bootloader options: 'tohkernel -v -f -x cpus=1' it hangs here:

Please, any insight would be most helpful.

xOny - yes I can get into single user mode with -s.

I don't know what to do once I get there.

 

I can also read/write to the file system more quickly by loading my HD into an external enclosure and plugging it into my XP machine using MacDrive. I don't know if that's a good idea or not, but it works. Again, I don't know what to do to begin fixing the problem, but I have access.

 

Any ideas??

Most ppl have similar problems after updating to 10.5.2 and not deleting the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext continuosly. If restored with the olds kexts, Leopard behaves in that way but I personally don't know why. Try checking the update threads for 10.5.2 if anyone should come up for a solution for that, but most will settle with a fresh install I think.

 

It's kinda strange that it does boot into single user mode but not into the GUI. I don't think it is kext related, but I have no idea what it could be otherwise...

I'm not sure that .kext is related, since I've not upgraded to 10.5.2, it's a fresh install of 10.5.1. This is it's first boot, or rather, it will be, when I can get it to boot. I'll try deleting it, though, just to see... I'll let you know if it has any effect.

Ok, so AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext doesn't exist. It's only in the 10.5.2 update I presume, which I don't have. Also, I'm not sure I understood you originally when you asked if I can boot into Single User Mode. -s does boot me to the root: command line, where it tells me I can do things like fsck -fy and such, and then type exit to boot. After typing exit to boot, it still freezes in the same place though, so I'm not sure that counts as booting into S.U.M. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

 

I have to admit, when it comes to OSX commands and filesystem structure, etc, I'm a complete noob. I'm not at all a noob at computing and customizing/altering interfaces and such though. I'm an XP "power user" who's experimenting at making the switch to a hackintosh/dualboot system....

 

Again, thanks for the help, and any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated...

I had the same problem on my Asus Z71A but got lucky. When I thought the install had failed (at DMOS: Starting) I held down the power on/off button for 13 seconds and the install continued. I'm typing this reply on the Asus w/kaly 10.5.1 & wireless working. Here's the link with a description of what happened:

As wacky as this may sound it did work for me.

Leopard won't finish booting on battery on my computer by the way but finishes when plugged in.

Which is why I'd say if you can't get Leopard installed you might try JaS 10.4.8. It works very well and is what I was using before Leopard.

By the way your Intel wi-fi card will never work.

You need a Broadcom card and kext mod to get it working. You'll find info about that in this forum.

Best Wishes

Just a note: I reverted back to JaS 10.4.8, and it works ok, except my video is stuck at 1024x768. I hear there's no way to get otherwise with my video card: Intel 82855. But: my Intel Wireless 2200 card is working flawlessly. I just installed the latest iwidarwin package, and it worked first time!

Glad to hear that 10.4.8 is working for you.

Thanks for the info on the Intel 2200 wi-fi card.

I have a 2200 that I tried to bring over from Red Hat but couldn't get it to work.

The fix was changing to a Broadcom card and modifying kext (no kext mod necessary in Leopard).

So I'll look for the iwidarwin package that you mentioned.

Or maybe I'll just put the 2200 card in and see if Leopard knows about it.

BUMP!!

 

I have this exact problem with Kalyway 10.5.1 and my DV1000.

 

I selected the Vanilla kernal (with ACPI fix?), the SSE2 option, and MBR.

It installed fine but won't boot.

I get the mDNSkeychainGetSecrets part in the 2nd picture.

 

I've tried fixing permissions, tried safe mode, single user but nothing gets passed that.

Any ideas?

Wow it is really nice to heard that Intel 2200 card could work in MacOS. Is there any way to extract that kext from JaS 10.4.8 and apply to another distro like iATKOS?
