i have a similar problem too
I'm having the same problem. Here's my setup: http://www.woot.com/Blog/ViewEntry.aspx?Id=4069
except I've put in an ATI Radeon x600 (no Nvidia card unless it's onboard) and I've put in more ram. The Mobo is ht2000 and it is not a dual boot, it's installed on its own drive. I used Kalyway 10.5.2 and have tried many different kernels/configurations. Here is a picture of the verbose boot: http://i37.tinypic.com/2santoh.jpg
Immediately after it reaches this point the hard drive stops spinning and pretty much shuts down.
I have not tried any other versions because I have been unable to download them. Is there any way to install this into a virtual machine? Virtualbox says this:
The guest is trying to switch to the PAE mode which is currently not supported by VirtualBox. If possible choose another flavour if the guest kernel, install a desktop kernel not of a server kernel.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I just tried Leo4all and iATKOS. Leo4all installs but doesn't boot the kernel and the iATKOS won't boot at all (edit: I made sure and selected the amd and time machine fix but I don't know if I have the right chipset. How do I know what chipset I have? What chipset is it even talking about?). So far Kalyway is getting the farthest but it just stops here:
I found the sticky to run it in a virtual machine and I'll try it later, but that's just not the same thing.

I have the same problem. I am using an ATA disk with a newly installed version of XP Pro on one partition and the other partition created from the cmd prompt using diskpart. I install Kalaway(default settings) and it installs just fine to the selected partition on an ATA disk(Win XP Pro on the other partition). When it reboots I boot from the Gparted disk and select Manage on my NTFS(Win XP) partition and tick boot. I then boot into windows and edit the boot.ini file with the addittion C:\chain0="Mac OS" and copy the file chain0 to the root of the windows partition. Upon boot I get the dual boot selection but when I select Mac OS I just get the Apple screen with the spinning circle and nothing happens thereafter. When I tried booting with -V the last few entries before it hung were:
LocalHost ConfigdNetwork Interface could not update platform UUID
LocalHost ConfigdTimedout waiting for IOKit to quiesce
LocalHost ConfigdCould not establish Network Config:Success
and there it hangs.
My system is:
Evga Nforce 780i Mobo
Intel C2Quad Q9450-MMX, CMov, RDTSC, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, PAE, NX, SSSE3, SSE4.1
Seagate ATA HD using generic XP drivers(Installed when installing XP)
2GB Crucial DDR2 PC6400 800MHz
Evga NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB
Creative X-Fi Music Extreme
MS USB Intellimouse
Old Dell keyboard(which does not work when using disk utilities in Kalaway when installing Kalaway on the partition, I use cut and paste with my mouse to name the partition).
Any ideas as to what is going on here.
Use the Search Button - A Euphuism for "I haven't got a Clue"
A few ideas that will help the situation:
When installing (again), be sure to erase the partition/drive before installing (again).
I've made Kalyway 10.5.2 work by selecting the sleep kernel and the ACPI fix option in customizing.....and NOTHING else.
It gets by that "2621 error" which, by the way, must be related the ACPI. I can't guarantee that's what causes it but...well, no one else seems to be offering any other real alternative ideas and the "stuck" happens right before the ACPI message...not to mention the ACPI fix i mentioned and making it work.
No, this is no guarantee.
I don't believe a machine is incompatible just because you hit that small of a snag...well, i've proven it with my install (and i reinstalled kalyway 10.5.2, at least, 14 times with different options). People said my VGN-a290 sony was incompatible and i just couldn't believe that.
I'm still working with options because, once installed, i've gotten a few bumps. "About this mac" causes finder to reset and, even though you're selecting the sleep kernel...it doesn't sleep well.
All i can say is customize, customize, customize. Get on ebay, pony out $100 and get yourself a 3ghz machine and play with it until you're ready to throw up.
For future reference, telling someone to try another version of OSX86 isn't really a helpful answer. It's like telling someone who's shooting a gun, and missing a target, to try another gun. I found it by reading other people's boot logs then tried the ACPI fix and it worked.
