Hi! I'm all new to this Mac thing. So after a smooth install of Tiger 10.4.8 i restarted a comp. While boot it shows an apple splash screen and after a 30 second it shows a restart needed message like this(see attached picture). When I boot the system with -v command it stops at login screen loaded message or something like that. I don't know what to do.. Any ideas?


My configuration:


AMD X2 64 6000+


Geforce 8600GTS


1x IDE ATA 120GB

1x SATA 320GB


Edit: so this is where it stucks in verbose mode:


localhost /System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindows.app/Contents/MacOS/loginwindows: Login Window Application started

I finally solved my problem. The prob. was in nv40 drivers, which i chosed to install for older nvidia cards. So I did a complete reinstall without those drivers and Mac works :)




Now I must get my built in Ethernet and sound card to work.


Anyone knows where i can get drivers for them. Its nForce550 chipset..
