    Exclamation Help me! Installation problems!

    WILL GIVE REP IF YOU HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The last few days, I have been trying to install Mac OSX Snow Leopard on my Acer Aspire 5740-5847. I've been trying to install iDeneb. My goal is to have Windows 7 and Mac OS X on two separate partitions so I can use a bootloader to choose which one I want to use. Just help me with a successful install. I'm not worried about drivers or anything.

    Update: Now I've got it so that I can select what I want with Chameleon, but all some boot commands just reboot my comp. Something interesting happens to me if I type -v busratio=20 as a boot command. Some code goes by really fast, then it stops and tells me there's a kernel panic... It says something like, "Could not find the driver for this platform ACPI". I have no idea what this means. Please help me!

    I'm reaching out to everybody here at Hackint0sh for help.

    My hardware is (and all of it is stock except for my external HDD BTW):
    Acer Aspire 5740-5847.
    Processor: 2.13 GHz, Intel Core i3 330M 1066 MHz FSB, L3 Cache
    RAM: DDR3 SDRAM, 1066 MHz (1x1 GB, 1x2 GB)
    Hard Drive: 320 GB ATA 150, 640 External Seagate FreeAgent Go

    If you need more information on my hardware or on the issues I am encountering, feel free to ask me.

    Just to let you know that Ideneb is Leopard, not SL as what you want per your post.

    What is your hardware specs as chipsets and video? The i3 is 2 core/4 threads?
    Also to make dual booting easier, your OSX partition should be primary type.

    And one more thing, people who try to help you are not here for REP.

    Thank you so much for replying retvn! First, I didn't know iDeneb was just Leopard. I said I was confused lol. Anyway my processor is 2 cores and 4 threads just like you said. My chip set (I think, I used the DxDiag tool already on my PC and clicked the display tab) is an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD. And I did try using primary partitions, I even experimented by setting them as active.

    Finally, I know people aren't here for rep. I just like to acknowledge and thanks those who are able to help me out.

    You're welcome.
    Intel HD is your video, will need its model number later for driver. Your chipsets could be the HM55 family. There are 2 versions of them, and OSX installation could be different, maybe?

    As long as you have the OSX partition primary, Chameleon could boot both windows and OSX and there're no need to use other boot utility. During installation, OSX will set its partition active by itself.

    Assuming you already set your BIOS and using Ideneb 1.6, you could try this boot options to boot the installation:

    -x -v busratio=16 cpus=1

    see how it goes for you.

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm getting somewhere!!!!!! Now I see this screen that says my keyboard isn't recognized or something, plug one in now. I believe I need to install a driver for it or something right?

    And by the way, the -v busratio=17 boot command worked for me

    That is very good.
    I think that would start the welcome screen to registration to desktop...
    Good job..

    You could use USB keyboard to complete those steps.
    Yes, need to select VoodooPS2 for keyboard and mouse.

    Yes, that's the driver for your keyboard/mouse, and for laptop, choose the one with touchpad.
    Otherwise you can pluggin a USB keyboard to finish those step, then once in OSX install PS2 driver for it

    EDIT: It should be in the installation selections.
