    Question Constant restart; refuses to boot.

    Alright, so I'm relatively new to these modified/patched Mac OS's, but I've been wanting to use a Mac without forking out the several hundred dollars just for a computer specifically built for Mac, especially when I'm jobless as of right now. I considered installing Ubuntu, but Mac OS X just has support for what little I need that I can't run on Windows XP.

    However, after running the iDeneb installer, checking all I thought was necessary, it confirms it's done, and has to restart. Well, I restarted it, tried to boot from the drive that Mac OS X is now installed on; it starts to, but then goes black, and returns to the boot process once again, asking me what to boot from, CD or one of my hard drives.


    I'm not sure how to get a large list of my system specs like everyone else posts, so if you can guide me to doing that, I'd be happy to post. But at the least, I can be vague:


    I'm not sure what motherboard I have, but I do know that the sound card is on-board and the chipsets are Intel.

    Network/Ethernet card is a "3Com EtherLink XL 10/100 PCI TX NIC (3C905B-TX)".
    Video card is an ATI Radeon 9250 (and I can't upgrade yet due to lack of money; I am upgrading to an ATI Radeon HD 3650 soon, but that's going to be a couple months or so.).

    The sound card says "SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio".

    Processor is an Intel Pentium IV 2.88 GHz (Hyper-Threading), and tends to be detected as two processors, or dual-core, though it's neither.

    The chipset shows Intel(R) 828-- on everything mostly:
    AGP and I/O controllers are Intel 82865G/PE/P/GV/82848P;
    Firmware Hub Device is Intel 82802;
    SMBus Controller, PCI Bridge, and LPC Interface Controller are Intel 82801EB; as well as all the USB host controllers.

    "Computer" (in Device Manager) shows as "ACPI Multiprocessor PC".

    Almost forgot to mention, 2048 GB of RAM.



    I've tried booting with -v, -f [supposedly helps with first boot] -- and, not being very informed in this area of work, I'm quite clueless what all I can do.

    Are there any specific checks I should choose to get it to work? Can anyone give me a basic run-through of what I should and shouldn't check?

    I really would like to use Mac OS X, but if it's impossible, I guess I can go without until I can afford to buy a MacBook.

    Default Full PC Specs, via DxDiag

    I saved the details of my PC from DxDiag, and cut what wasn't important, leaving the System, Sound, and Video specs. All the rest was PS/2, USB, or DirectX info... This should be enough. Dx

    Is no one going to help? I thought this forum was reliable for assistance in working with patched Mac OS's...

    I've tried -v, -f, -s, -x, cpus=1; I've uninstalled and reinstalled from scratch using as little as possible, and only checking what I knew was necessarily, things like that.

    Is there nothing I can do? Because I'm about to give up on this idea entirely since no one seems to help out here...

    Reinstalled it one more time with nothing but the minimal amount [base system & applications] and booted with "-v -f -x", which I'm told is 'verbose' [text display], first boot, and safe mode.

    This picture shows the error (at least, I assume it's the error) that comes up before it loads from the CD again, rather than booting from HDD.



    Admin can resize if necessary.

    What does this mean? I partitioned & mounted it using the Disk Utility on iDeneb, and it installed no problem... It's an IDE (not SATA) hard drive; could that be the problem?

    I have the same problem as well, except for me I can't boot up Windows XP either, and no error appears before the computer restarts. I'm doing this typing from a live cd. Linux is the only thing that seems to work. I installed Debian 5 because the only way I could think of getting rid of the chameleon loader was by replacing it with grub. Debian worked but windows still did not. I've already formated debian and tried to install XP on a separate partion. That didn't work either. I tried repair installs, which also didn't work. I tried fixmbr in the the comandline of the Xp disc, it didn't work. This whole thing happened because I installed iDeneb 10.5.4. I tried to do dual boot between it and xp using Acronis Disk Director and OS selector. OS selector was replaced with the Chameleon bootloader. This is my first time ever to try a multi boot, and I'm done with hacked os's from now on.
