    Default help needed for acer aspire 5535 laptop: amd turion x2, ati 3200 hd mobility,

    Hello,

    I have looked around for quite a while now and even downloaded the latest ipc distro. I am unable to get ipc (livedvd) to even get to the install screen. Could anyone help and give me some pointers.

    Laptop specs
    Acer Aspire 5535

    # AMD Turion 64 X2 dual-core mobile (has SSE 2 and SSE 3)

    # AMD M780G Chipset

    # ATI Radeon™ HD 3200 Graphics (mobile version)

    What distro of osx86 should I be using?
    Is it more compatible to use a Tiger release isntead?
    Is it possible to get vmware to work with my specs?

    any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Default If it does not boot as a CD - it is probably a bad CD

    Maybe you did not burn it - maybe its a bad ISO - maybeyou are doing something wrong - you do not describe anything wrong but your own non-descriptive failure

    sorry i'll try again.

    I burnt the iso to a DL disc and attempted to boot from it live and also get to the installer screen. Both times the kernal hung after some of the boot messages where scrolling.

    I have since tried in VMWARE following a video tutorial. I have tried in vmware (version 6.5) to do the same. Boot from live and get to install screen. Both times the same thing happens. VMWARE tells me that the host os has disabled the cpu.

    The video tutorial instructed me to choose BSD 64bit as the base os and then modify the virtual machine config file to insert DARWIN as the guest os. I have selected SCSI emulation for the hard disk mode.

    I have tried using vmware to mount the IPC live dvd ISO as well as daemon tools.

    Here is a screenshot of the crash

    Default it tells you the kernel panic'ed - install different, newer distro

    You do not need me - the kernel panic'ed. The error tells you what to do and who to contact. You won't get an answer likely because the kernel is OLD.

    Your best bet is to get another distribution like IPC 10.5.6. ppf4 or ppf5 with Live boot - and try a live boot from the CD first and then re-install it fresh. Google it to see how it works and where to get it.

    These "please help me" cries are always funny.

    If you say you have tried all the other distro's and none worked - though you do not describe how none of them worked and to what extent you got in the boot issues of each - YOU are doing something wrong over and over again and failing to learn.

    NO ONE can help you right now. You do not say what is wrong, you do not say what you did that does not work and you offer no clues as to your level of expertise as to EXACTLY where you are stumped. You just scream "please help me". Please grow up - this tells no one anything.

    If you go to a Medical Doctor and just scream "please help me" and will give no symptoms or clues as to what is going on - even a Doctor cannot help you but begin guessing - and guess what - they get paid to do so - no one here is being paid by you, and still the doctor could end up killing you rather than saving you because you did not tell a critic piece of information - like a severe allergy or something like that which could kill you in his efforts to help you. Computers - especially the OS's of computers are NO DIFFERENT.

    You do not say what is going on. No one is a mind reader here and were not sitting in front of your machine.

    Usually a Kext is likely probably not loading or blocking something - or the kernel panics. that means dies the horrible crash like a aircraft pilot would it the pilot panic'ed in an emergency situation and did not know what to do.

    The kexts are vendor and device ID specific - so if the kext does not have the right vendor and model ID referenced in the kext file - it will fail - or pass up the device anyway.

    You have to figure this out yourself - it is YOUR machine. They are all different as to what is in the unit from the manufacturer, and even if using common device components - the vendor and device ID may be different that what the kext might have in it.

    If you have Windows still on the same machine - and it is working - you can do kext editing from inside windows by installing some helper tools to look into the HPS drive. Use Windows Text Editor Download and Download Ext2Fsd 0.46 - An open source Ext2 File System Driver for Windows - Softpedia and Catacombae - HFSExplorer (HFS Explorer) to see and get at the Mac files in Windows; OR you can BUY Macdrive. If you are having dual boot problems try installing EasyBCD from inside Windows to boot between the two. Its free.

    This above will only work if you have been smart enough to do a dual boot machine where Windows is on another partition or permanent drive in the same computer. If Windows will not boot use a Vista repair disk or the XP disk to repair the boot sector - then install EasyBCD through Windows and it will see the MAC partition to let you set it up on the boot manager. Google how to get one if you do not have them.

    You can see the vendor and device ID in Windows, and the kext will have a name and you can find the vendor and device ID in the text of the kext info.plist. You can edit this from the windows side with the editor above - and use no other - they will not work.

    After you get in through safe mode, you can run "diskutils repairpermissions /" (without the quotes) and to fix the changes you made from the Windows side.

    You come in single user with the -s command at the prompt. Do what it says to mount the volume and then

    You do a "sudo -s" first (no quotes)
    cd /System/Library
    chmod -R 755 Extensions /
    touch Extensions /
    diskutil repairpermissions /

    There are other ways to do this and much more from the -s boot option (single user mode) but it is really getting UNIX specific as to the commands, and if you are there and know nothing anyway - you should probably pay someone, buy a real MAC or just give up - OR get ready for a real extensive learning curve and research on the web.

    You need to do some research on how the MAC OS works. Match your kext families with the missing parts of the OS not loading - change the vendor and device ID's and one at a time - you'll get them working and the boot errors will go away.

    If you have/had IPC 10.5.6 ppf4 or ppf5 you would likely have most of the kexts - but they might not have the right vendor ID and device ID for the unit you are trying to install on. it works for both CPUs Intel or AMD.

    Once installed, you need to boot in safe mode from the Darwin prompt with the -x option. Use -v also so you can see what it is loading and if it does stop in safe mode and where. Then you can try -v -f on another boot to see if it will make it all the way

    The MacOS is at it's core - UNIX - you cannot just lump a question in something and throw it here that is non-descriptive as to tell anyone not at your PC what is TRULY going on, even though I am a UNIX engineer.

    No one can help you if they cannot tell what is really going on - and if you are not ready to learn some UNIX - give up now.

    If you install the right kexts (Kernel EXTensionS) with the right vendor id's applicable the system will load them as it finds the hardware during the boot process.

    Read the clues of the boot process yourself and do some research as to what they mean and then if you have a specific question you cannot find on the Internet or in the forums - that someone can identify - post that.

    Of course you can always BUY a real MAC, and then holler "please help me" all you want to Apple Computer Support, and at some point they will tell you the same thing.

    Well thanks for the reply. I think?

    I have looked around many many tutorials and other peoples forum conversations to try and pick up at least a little of the basics. Some of the bits you mentioned in your sarcastic reply were the info I was looking for. Granted I have been pressed for time so was trying to take a shortcut by getting advice on this forum.

    Perhaps you should write a mini tutorial based on your forum post (serious) because it spelled it out to me?

    I program as a job, so frequently have to pick up new API's/techni-reference. I use windows primarily and it is just a stumbling block to try and switch to the unix way of thinking! I should have made my first post clearer. I was simply looking for some helpful pointers in the right direction.

    So your reply is appreciated.

    hey there skn3, did you try to install for real? anyway with vmware is hard, check pcwiz site they have some tutorials for vmware installation, theres one here too in the tutorial section, if you are trying live, why dont try for real, no in vmware.

    If you have the normal version iPC 10.5.6 and config your virtual machine using any tutorial vmware, boot using cpus=1 -v -f. Hope it help and report your progress back ;D
