    Default Acer M3630 installation help

    Hi, I've been trying to install the iPC Final 10.5.6 Distro on my Acer M3630.

    The attempts have been unsucessful. I tried -v to look at what is wrong, and after just 4 lines and Starting Darwin appears, my computer reboots and the cycle repeats.

    I tried using all kinds of flags, like -x, -v, -f, and -cpus=1 with cpus=1 bringing me the furthest until the apple logo with grey screen, and the indication bar spins for 15mins before a kernel panic appears. I can upload the kernel panic screen if anyone wants to see it.

    Below are my system specs. Appreciate some help please!!

    CPU Type: DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo E4500, 2200 MHz (11 x 200)

    I think I should mention that I cannot get to the installation window or even boot the DVD.

    So basically it's stuck trying to boot into the installation setup.

    Check if you have AHCI support in the BIOS

    ahh I don't see that anywhere the whole day I was playing around with it.

    I heard that we might need to flash a Modded BIOS is that right?

    Seems like you will need to

    OSXCORES

    Here some acers, check those acer on top have the same mobo, if like 3640 I think is the same mobo, like in my guide lots of HP Pavilion use my guide, different models but they use Asus IPIBL-LB motherboard ;P

    If in your case is different try asking there for your BIOS MOD
    HP Pavilion Elite m9250f
    Snow Leopard 10.6.6, Asus IPIBL-LB MOD BIOS, Intel Quad Core Q6600, 4GB RAM (800mhz), 2x500GB, nVidia 8600GT (Works), ALC888S (Works), Wireless RT73 (Works), LAN (Works) - How to Install - Blog - Hardware Combos - FAQ by TJ2K7

    I think I'll try using iDeneb to see whether it will work on my system. I'll check back again!

    If anyone has the M3630 / M5630 modded bios, would you please tell me here! Appreciate all the help I can get!
