iDeneb 1.4 freezes when loading desktop (after installation)
I'm almost there! I have been patiently trying to get different distros to work and never got past the boot screens. This time it's different: after the installation OSX boots and loads the post-installation. After I fill in all the information the desktop is trying to load. Sometimes I see just a blue screen and sometimes the desktop has partially loaded, but I can always move my cursor around. It never boots totally, not even in safe mode.
Asus P5L 1394
Intel Pentium Dual-Core E1800
2x 1GB of Corsair
USB mouse and keyboard
2 SATA disks = 1 for Vista and 1 for OSX
In the iDeneb 1.4 installation I chose:
Voodoo 9.5.0 kernel
I hope someone can tell me more about this, I've looked all over the net and couldn't find anything similar.
If you see a BSOD are you sure its not windows ? :]
Give us the output of f8 -v -f on boot, look on google if you need help booting into verbose mode.
Well, I'm definitely sure it's not windows. If I boot into whatever (verbose, single user, and -f) it always boots through to the point I can see the GUI of OSX. Sometimes it gets through to the desktop and sometimes it gets stuck at a blue screen. In every case the screen freezes at a certain point, but I can still move my cursor.

So it definitely is a video driver problem. I've tried all more sufisticated drivers (NVdarwin, NVkush) and also tried to use EFI studio, all leaving me with exactly the same problem.
I hope you understand what I'm saying and I also hope you can help me a step further with the problem.
Try to re-install the working example with the locked size, then once booted up MOVE all NVDA* and GeForce* kext to a backup folder to access incase you need to restore. After you have done that, download these: http://www.nawcom.com/osx86/files/Gr...nject.kext.zip, place them in the folder you removed the others from.

Tell me what happens on your boot -v -f.
