Issue with Darwin BootLoader

Hi Everyone,


Unfortunately my attempts at installation haven't got very far...

I have a DVD burned with the Kalyway 10.5.1 image. When entering the Darwin environment to install Leopard, (in -v verbose mode) I get the following error:


"Darwin loading HFS+ file: [mach_kernel] from

EBIOS read error: device timeout

block 8939856 sectors 64"


I have no idea what this means!?!? - Any thoughts?


My system spec is as follows:

Acer TravelMate 5720

Intel C2D T7300 (SSE2 SSE3)

Intel GM965 Chipset

Pheonix BIOS


Mobile Intel GMA X3100


Many thanks

Yeah, a failure when writing to the dvd.

If you have the possibility to use another dvd-burner, do it! Otherwise, try burning with the lowest speed possible, and you may want to use a good burning software, for example Nero.
