What am I doing wrong?
I have 2 rigs and on neither one managed to install a distro, I would like your opinion too because I'm kind of noob when comes down OSX
Laptop: Samsung P500Y
Intel C2D T5450 @ 1,66ghz
mainboard chipset: ATI IXP600
video: ATI x1250
2 gb DDR2 667mhz
hdd 160gb Hitachi sata2
IDE DVD-RW drive
SCSI and RAID controllers : AGRM3HR4 IDE Controller
WLAN Atheros AR5007EG
LAN Marvell Yukon 100mbps fast ethernet
Broadcom 2045 bluetooth usb2.0 device
sound Realtek ALC262
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe: Nforce 4, socket 939
AMD Opteron 140 @ 1,8ghz
hdd 250gb Western Digital, sata2
IDE DVD-RW dvrive
1 gb DDR1 PC3200 (2x512)
video ATI X850XT 256mb PCIex 16x
On both of them I tried to install distros of MAC (iPC 10,5,6; iDeneb 10.5.6; LawlessPPC-Leo-10.5.4-Phenom&AMD)
On desktop all of them gave to me " Stil waiting for root device".
- iPC:" Stil waiting for root device"
- iDeneb: " Stil waiting for root device" allthough it recognized the ATI IXP600 SATA chipset
- LawlessPPC-Leo-10.5.4-Phenom&AMD: recognized the ATI chipset but it gave an other error, something with SAM... an error regarding reading or writing
I need your advice to help me install at least in one rig.
Sounds like a compatibility issue with your chipset. I do not think it has support for either, try to google your motherboard specs on both and any possible success with hackint0sh.

I could figure out for my self that it something with hardware compatibility, but I am asking support to those of you fellows that have rigs with remotely the same configurations.
Hey there, seems like it should work check this thread, its kinda old, but it will give u an idea about how to install, good luck and report back your progress
