    Default Any Distro for AMD computers?

    Hello, I am a total newbie here:
    I saw almost every guide, but couldn't really find the exact guides. Everything was for Intel :[

    I use AMD. I really want to "try out mac" before spending $1000 or so.

    I tried kelyway 10.5.2, which didn't work, tried genuine copy of mac but both didn't work.

    I couldn't even get to start my installation!

    Here is my spec:
    CPU-Z Validator 3.1
    This is from CPUZ so you can see everything!

    However, incase the link brakes here is my spec:

    AMD Athlon X2 3800+
    MSI AMETHYST-M (motherboard, and has onboard video card: ATI XPRESS X200)
    1GB RAM
    250GB HD.

    I really want to use Leopard (better yet, Snow Leopard)
    What kind of Distro+kernel should I use?

    Default same here

    Hi,

    Stuck at the grey apple screen while booting iDeneb 10.5.8 Lite.
    Somekind of grey "no parking zone" symbol displys over the apple symbol.

    Specs of my AMD box: CPU-Z Validator 3.1

    Any advice ?

    Thnx.

    Default Try this!

    F8 for boot options (or just press any key when you see the Chameleon if you use this bootloader - as you mentioned iDeneb, that's probably it)

    Enter: -v -f -x as boot options
    -v = verbose
    -f = don't remember old extension settings
    -x = try to load all extensions first to find best one
    -> this will tell you where you have a problem. It might be that the DVD is not found by iDeneb after boot, you can use root=... to fix this. Also check out ? to get a list of boot options to try. Try different kernels: 970, 950, ..

    BTW: for AMD Phenom-II X4 it works quite well (except for the nasty problem with the iPhone development kit, of course), but I've tried it only under VMWare.

    You also need to check...
    * whether your processor is VT-x capable (e.g. grep vmx /proc/cpuinfo)
    * whether VT-x is not disabled in BIOS (there should be a BIOS setting)
    The original MacOS needs that, not sure whether they have disabled it for iDeneb. I've only ever made it work on machines which had this switched on.
