AMD II 620, Asrock N68 MB (7025/603e) chipset - WON't Install. Pls Help !!!
Hi Guys and Guru's
I am trying (and trying and trying) to get an OSX 10.5.... on the above rig. I've tried Amd pre-patched releases, Iatkos etc.
Iatkos7 goes to grey apple screen, but never beyond the wait cursor on that screen.
The other Mac distro (Leopard-AMD-10.5.1) I've tried does get to the continue screen, but will not show my drive. When I load the Disk utility, I see my drive (a second, seperate internal SATA drive) but no matter how I prepare the partitions, I can't get OS to install. Here are some examples of results !
In boot, various message (Mach communication failed?, IOATAController blocking bus) in various combo's..
Can see drive, but no partition. Verify, repair etc all greyed out, NO operations are possible on the drive.
Can't see drive at all. (also can't see external USB hard drive (160gb sata, in a usb enclosure, or 8gb USB-key)
At one stage I did see the partitions, (I think after formatting them using Macdrive through Win7.) but still could'nt verify, repair, erase or partition them.
My Dvd drive is SATA, full spec:
AMD II X4 620 running at 3.21Ghz (oc'd a bit form 2.6)
Onboard Nvidia 7025 graphics (256 shared)
MB Is AsRock n68-s (Nvidia 7025/603e chipset)
1 Hitachi 1Tb Sata
1 Seagate Barry 320gb Sata (intended for Osx)
1 Maxtor 160gb Sata, put into an Sata/Usb2 enclosure, so just a 160 Usb Drive...)
8gb pen drive, 4gb pen drive.
I know the majority of this info is useless, and apologise for that. If anyone could suggest the correct distro, or tell me if i'm doing anything wrong? (I have tried formatting 320gb to Fat 32, tried HFS+)
Do I need to run it with a different kernel? or add more 'kexts'. HOW !
I have done endless searching and reading, but everything is very specific to distro, architecture, kernel etc.. so i'm going a bit word-blind in the effort.
Any help would be really appreciated, I'm dying to get this lovely OS running !
Bump... Can somebody pleeeeease help !!
(I have upgraded my GFX to a Radeon HD 4650 now...)
which Chipset are you selecting? I have found that selecting a VIA chipset sometimes gets nforce motherboards to boot up. Give it a shot and see if it helps.
