iDeneb 10.5.7 on Foxconn p35a - Stops on first boot!?!
I need some help.
I have foxconn p35a, intel E4500 core 2 duo, Ati 3870, HDD: WD640 & Hitachi (deskstar) 320GB, 2GB Ram...
I was installed iDeneb 10.5.7 and after success installation and restart, OS won’t boot…
It stops on immediately upon apple boot screen!
I was trying to start it with the command: cpus=1 –v –x –f, but same thing happens!
I was tried vanilla and voodoo kernels already, also fixes for ACPI kext, iCHx fix, Jmicron ATA fix, same things stands… Installation going fine, but first boot is failure!
Some people guesses that this might be because of ACPI or some BIOS incompatibilities but for now I didn’t found strait answer, although there are people who are managed to install and run successfully iDeneb and iATKOS on Foxconn p35a.
I appreciated any idea or suggestion, or if there is anyone with same motherboard I’ll appreciate info for bios version and settings!
intel q6600 quad core
i tryed all stuff in forums but can`t boot either
somebody help please
OK, I was tried iDeneb 10.5.6, 10.5.7, 10.5.8, kalyway 10.5.2, iAtkos 10.5.4, 10.5.7 but the only one which I was managed to run is iPC X-DL (10.5.6)
Phuu... Hell of a job!
Advice to others:
For running some installations I was needed to do next thing:
press F8 for boot prompt, then write command: cpus=1 -v
Vanilla kernel doesn't work in my case. The one I was installed was speedstream for Intel chip set.
ACPI fix also and cpus=1 also needed.
There was also few more fixes I needed such as dmg fix so that finder can work properly, but those are all offered as option.
Upon success installation, I was needed to run OSX with -f. For iPC X-DL version that is necessary!
But it wasn't run properly again in my case!
So I was run it again with the: -f -x -v (safe mode)
And that was worked! I was make my profile and start OS, then reboot.
On second boot it was run normally w/o any additional commands.
So that's it!
I was heaving problem with mouse tearing, but then I was run setup of iDeneb 10.5.7. and from it I was installed only mouse lag fix.
What I didn't manage to fix until now is only GL functions (Quartz extreme) because of which cover flow mod won't to work but also some programs such as imovie per example!
But I believe that I'll find solution for that soon or a later!
It is a strange thing that you can't find here and on other similar web sites decent explanation (or manual) what to do, and some little tips and tricks and all that on one place... heh!
I hope that this will be helpful to others!

I'm also having some trouble with iDeneb 10.5.7. I've tried Vlada's suggestion of trying -f -x -v, but no luck there. I tried booting with -s, and I'm able to get to root#. Is there anything I can do at this point to get it to get past the booting screen with the apple on it?
If someone can help me, please leave instructions on how to fix this. I'm a complete noobie to this, so the more detailed the instructions, the better
