    Default Help a newb install iDeneb v1.4 correctly - custom PC

    Hi there,

    Did some research after trying to install v1.6 and it turns out my motherboard isn't compatible with it like I was told by a different forum.

    Its v1.4 that works with my mother board which is the Asus P5N-D. So I tried installing both v1.6 and v1.4 on my home built PC under VMware 7/XP. The v1.6 kept giving me a "CPU has entered shutoff mode" or something of the like, which got me to researching more into which iDeneb I really needed. Then when I tried v1.4 I can go through the entire installation, selecting these options before install except for the ones highlighted in red.

    Code:
        *  Install Method: iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6 no kernel flags needed.
        * Realtek ALC883 Audio: Working with ALC 889 888 6 port and 883 6 port (all three)
        * LAN: NForceLan.kext (had to delete forcedeath.kext)
        * SATA: works (used AppleNForceATA driver)
        * PATA: not tested
        * USB: works
        * Firewire: not tested (disabled)
        * Can boot with just maxmem=3072, but wireless disconnects and cannot reconnect with a reboot. This issue does not happen when using a single core. 
    
    	EFI v9 + 9.5.0 Voodoo kernel (can patch to 9.6.0 after install with no issues, but unstable unless booting with one core cpus=1)
    How do I fix those highlighted?

    However, it gets to the very end and just freezes. It says less than a minute left and the status bar is not turning but mouse is still able to move.

    Here is my setup. I am reformatting my computer which will multi-boot, MacOSX86 (iDeneb v1.4) on a WD 160GB HDD, Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on a WD 1TB HDD, and Debian 5.0.3 on a 320GB HDD.

    Mobo: Asus P5N-D
    CPU: Intel C2D e8500
    3xHDD: 1TB, 320GB, 160GB
    Vid Card: Nvidia GTX260 (I was unable to find any information through google or the osx wiki about the 200+ series on Hackintoshs should this be something I am concerned about when I don't plan on using it a graphics engine or gamer?)
    Sound Card: Asus Xonar D

    First question, what is causing it to freeze? Could it be that it is on VMWare?

    Secondly, how do I tell it only to use one core on the real install to a HDD?

    Thirdly, and probably the most important, can my current set up run MacOSX86?

    Thanks and sorry for the long winded questions.

    -Tony

    Thanks for the detailed information and questions are a good thing, if you don't ask how will you ever learn? Okay I'll be straight up I don't know much about iDeneb but as to your question about VMWare yea it can sometimes give issues. About Lan I wouldn't worry about it provided you have another system you can boot into while you search for a working kext. I'm not really getting the part of wanting to use the Voodoo kernel over Vanilla but hey whatever floats your boat. As to your question about how to boot with one core hit tab to bring to a command prompt and use cpu=1. Hope this helps
