    Question Endless Reboot BEFORE Installation

    Hello everyone,

    When I reach the Darwin and hit enter it has the spinning "\ - /" and proceeds to extract. After a few minutes of this my computer abruptly restarts and goes into the same Darwin installer. I've tried using multiple distros and many command line flags. I have an HP Slimline s5120y and I can't find many of the options that are supposed to be tweaked in my BIOS. I have verified my processor is atleast SSE2.

    Thank you in advanced

    Hi there,
    Maybe you can post more information on your chipsets/cpu, distro, bootflags.

    Cheers,

    I've tried Kalyway 10.5.2, iDenab v1.4, and iPC 10.5.6
    Boot flags I've tried: -v -f -x mach_kernel cpus=1 bustratio=20 rd=disk0s5

    Oh, boy!
    So I have to go looking for your computer specs, and that's the base model and yours is?
    Is it AMD x2 and nForce 430 chipsets?

    About the bootflag, are you trying it separate?
    Have you try with the group
    -x -v cpus=1 busratio=20

    for Ideneb?

    I'm sorry I did not mean to be rude by posting that I am just somewhat of a newbie when it comes to hardware. But yes, what you listed is correct.

    Oh boy,
    That is not very constructive and will not lead very far.

    I'm not sitting in front of your computer, so give me enough information, and don't make me repeat my question 2, 3 times.

    So with ideneb 1.4, at darwin prompt, with F8, you did have this group:

    -x -v cpus=1 busratio=20

    and your computer still went to a restart loop without error message or KP.

    Is this correct??

    Yes I've tried all all different flags with all three distros. I believe it has something to do with my BIOS setting but as I stated previously my BIOS settings are very basic and doesn't have any options for SATA/legacy/native and hard disk primary/slave options either.

    Yes,
    That nForce chipsets and your AMD cpu are tricky.
    If you already try those options and can't even get it going then you should try a newer release to see.
    Try Ideneb 1.6 10.5.8.

    Cheers,

    I tried the iDeneb 1.6 10.5.8 lite distro and it took me to the gray apple loading screen with the spinning circle underneath. Then a circle with a line through it (like a no smoking sign) appears on the top of the apple logo.
