Kernel Panic/Halt when loading Darwin


6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've got a Fujitsu Siemens Scenic with 1.3GHz Celeron, Intel 810 chipset, integrated Intel 815 graphics card, 512MB RAM, 30gig HD, PS/2 keyboard & mouse and PhoenixBIOS.


The system loads the BIOS and starts up from the DVD, lets me choose whether I want to "Install MacOSX" or "Enter advanced settings". (I think that's what it said)

The image I've been using is called "uphuck_10.4.9_v1.4i_r2".

This is what it says before it hangs:

WARNING: ATA Drive claims FLUSH CACHE EXT feature support but does not claim Extended LBA feature support

This is sort of how it looks like. (this picture is not taken by me, so the text aren't the same):


Any help would be very much appreciated.

dont worry, you have probably just written over the first 512Kb of you drive (the MBR where it first boots from)


I think if you just rewrite your MBR you will probably boot back into windows fine. Its getting osx to run that will be more difficult.


I dont know anything aboyt Vista, but if its xp or 2000 or 98 the its easy to rewrite your MBR.


You need to boot from another bootable cd or DVD. There are many ones you can use, probably an XP install disc or 2000 boot disk is easiest to get hold of.


for XP install disc:


1) boot with the install disk, type R imediately to enter the recovery mode (thats how you do it on my computer, might be F8 if not). Dont go into the full XP installer, the recovery console is black & white & looks like a seveties computer display!


2) Once you get into the recovery console pick the command line option. Do not reinstall Windows (unless you like suffering)

3) at the prompt eg C:\ type "fdisk /mbr" without the " "s. Type EXACTLY that & nothing else

4) an alternative is to type "FIXMBR"

5) remove disk & shut down


one of the two will work.


other boot discs you can use are Windows 98 boot disc, maybe windows 95 as well -these can be downloaded legally & will fit on a floppy disk (if you have one) to boot from. You can make a Win2000 boot floppy easily from an XP machine. Just right click on A: in explorer, select format, select make bootable disk.


You might laugh, but I made one last week ;)

Thanks for your reply, but the disk is zeroed out (formatted) already. :P



But can nobody tell me how to get past that error thingie? I've read through a lot of posts about the more or less same problem, but none of those problems are solved either.
