    Default Firewire (ohci): start - unable to get device memory

    i installed darwin, no problem, now im trying to boot...

    My specs are an intel core 2 duo laptop

    15.4" WSXGA+ (1680 x 1050) Matte LCD
    PCI-e nVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 w/256MB
    Intel® Core™ Duo T2500 2.0GHz Processor w/2,048k L2 On-die cache - 667MHz FSB
    1 gb ddr 400
    80GB SATA Hard Drive at 5,400 RPM
    Combo Dual Layer SuperMulti DVDRW Drive

    After i boot, i hit -v for the verbose startup and error reporting.

    the error i get is:
    Firewire (ohci): start - unable to get device memory

    now common sense from reading the forum here tells me to change bios settings around abit. all fine and well, except there are no options to change practically in my cmos.

    i have the following opts in my cmos setup:

    Legacy USB support [enable/disable]
    Execute-Disable bit capability [enable/disable]
    Dynamic CPU Frequency Mode [dynamic/always low]

    THATS IT? nothing else to change excpet stupid stuff that wont help like a boot password, boot order, etc. ive tried every combination of options. if i disable "execute disable bit capability" then darwin devolves and bitches at me, so i have to leave it enabled. any hacks, or fixes, or anything, i hate mac i dont even know why im obcessed with putting osx on my laptop, but now that i cant figure it out, i want it even more!

    thanks

    I got this too my friends

    Firewire (OHCI ): start - unable to get device memory
    ...

    dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOFireWireFamily(4.2.6)
    dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily(2.6)
    ...

    You MUST remove all firewire related kexts from retail disk ( tell me if u realize how ) or use Hazard 10.6.
    I still trying install the retail edition.
