Zephyroth 10.5.2-AMD-EFI problem..

I burned a copy of Zephyroth and tried to install it but after the Darwin/x86 thing comes up it gets stuck on the grey Apple screen. It doesn't load and the spinning/loading icon doesn't show. It happened with iAtkos 10.5.1 too.

Is the problem my computer? I checked the wiki and didn't see any Satellite A215's on the list...

Post your full specs please...


First,boot with -v and read the messages...


Toshiba Satellite A215

2.0GHz AMD Turion 64x2 Mobile TL-56

ATI RadeonTM X1200

Atheros Wireless LAN (802.11b/g)

2GB PC5300 DDR2 667MHz SDRAM

160GB HD @5400rpm


With -v I got a "Local APIC version not 0x14 as expected" message, though everything else looks normal. (of course I wouldn't really know though)

Is that bad?

The final message I get with -v is

ACPI_SMC_CtrlLoop::initCPUCtrlLoop - pmCPUControl (PMIOCSETPSTATETABLE) returned 0x4304e80

Then it stops and I have to turn the computer off. If I just do things the normal way I get stuck on the Apple logo, and the text is too fast to read.


When I start I have this:

Darwin/x86 boot v5.0.132
	   1918MB memory

	   Use (up and down) keys to select the startup volume.
		   hd(31,0) Leopard-10.5.2-AMD-EFI

Anything wrong there?


Also the resolution is 1024x768 instead of 1280x800, but I assume that's a driver problem.
