Hi Everyone,


I'm trying to follow the tutorial posted on Lifehacker by Adam Posh. I can install to 100% via Kalyway 10.5.1 DVD. After it reboots to the grey apple screen with the spinning icon at the bottom it goes into a Kernel Panic. Here are my hardware specs


Asus P5W-DH Delux (BIOS: 2603)

Intel E4500 Core 2 Duo 2.2GHZ

4GB DDR2 Ram 6400(2x2GB Muskin)

Seagate 1TB SATA Hard Drive

Samsung 20x DVD+/- RW SATA

Antec Sonata Case with 500W PSU


Any help? Suggestions? Thanks!


Mainly trying to set this box up so I can use a "Mac" at work since the company is entirely Windows based for Autodesk software.

Unplug all unncessary hardware, extra drives, etc, disable AHCI, LAN, Sound in BIOS to isolate any component issue.


If none are found, boot from Kalyway and open Disk Utility. Repair permissions, then mount the drive. Open Terminal, then:


 sudo su
nano /Volumes/YOURVOLUME/System/Library/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

Change "Kernel Flags" to "-v", Control-X to save, and reboot off the HD. You'll now get a more informative boot. Post any interesting details here.
