    Default Can't find working installation with 780i nforce

    I keep trying different hackintosh releases to no avail. First I tried Kalyway 10.5.2 which installed fine and started up fine but wouldn't recognize my graphics card. I kept trying different kexts until I finally got a kernel panic. Next I tried iDeneb 10.5.5 which installed without any errors but when starting up just reboots. Any suggestions on what to do or what distro to use would be welcome! Here is my setup:

    nVidia 780i SLI mobo
    2x 8800GT's (I don't care if SLi works on hackintosh)
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
    1x 500 GB SATA (ntfs)
    1x 250 GB SATA (ntfs)
    1x 250 GB SATA (Mac Extended, Journaled)

    Hi, I haven't installed the Hankint0sh stuff yet; I have been reading up on it quite a bit first.

    I have read that there have been a lot of problems installing on nVidia mobo chipsets, perhaps you should try searching for that specific problem

    the first thing to remember when installing is ONLY chose ONE kernel... alot of people make this mistake... and as it goes with kalyway, when installing only choose one video driver from your right section no matter if its intel or others... if you chose the right setup for your video you will see the welcome video once you reboot.

    You have to know your system so before you install use everest so you can make the best decisions in customizing your install......

    Yup i agree with XaeroDegreaz i did click all the drivers when i was installing my Kalyway and i got problems like the white sub menus and then after restart it wont boot. I finally decided to install only specific drivers that the kalyway distro detects then all is now working great
