    Default Installation issues (iDeneb 1.3, OS 10.5.5)

    Hey all. I'm relatively new to the Hackintosh scene, and I'm having a few installation problems...

    Target Hardware:
    Mobo: ASUS M2N32-Workstation Pro (nForce 590-SLi Pro chipset)
    CPU: AMD Phenom 9850 Black Edition
    GPU: 2x 8800GTX (768MB ea)
    HDD: 200GB SATAII dedicated to MacOS
    RAM: 4GB DDR800

    Here are my selections from the "Customize" screen. (Not incl Applications)

    Code:
    >Patches 10.5.5 Ready
    --AMD Patch*
    ->Audio
    ---AC97Audio*
    ->Chipset
    ---AppleNForceATA Test*
    ->Kernel
    ---Kernel 9.2.2 SSE3*
    ->Network
    -->Ethernet
    ----Forcedeth*
    ->Fix
    -->AppleSMBIOS 
    ----AppleSMBIOS 800*
    ---FireWire Remove*
    ->Video
    -->NVidia
    ----NVKush*
    *= Items selected.

    Did a load of reading around the forum, and gather these to be the correct options for my hardware. I reformatted the drive each time I tried a different configuration

    I've remove the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from my Extensions folder on the target drive (When it appears). And also tried using the other two nForce ATA chipset modules.

    So onto the problems...

    Display fails to start. NVKush can't start the display.

    NVDA::start(display) <1> failed

    What I tried:
    mach_kernel -v -x "Graphics Mode"="800x600x16@60"

    This simply blanked out the display after trying to start. Misc code signing errors.

    mach_kernel "Graphics Mode"="800x600x16@60"

    Sat at a spinning wheel for a while, then greyed out and showed "You need to restart your computer" dialog. Added the -x option and got to a blanked out display again.

    mach_kernel -v -x -s -F "Graphics Mode"="800x600x16@60"

    Lets me boot in single-user mode on a command line. Seems like any repairs or changes I need to make can be done from here. Root volume mounts without issues and I can navigate the root filesystem.

    What I've established:

    The display driver doesn't like my card.
    Adding -x for safe mode possibly works, but I get no display - so I can't tell.
    I can enter single user mode.

    I'm really stumped at what is causing this not to boot. I've trapsed all around the forum and can't see anything wrong that I'm doing. I'm an experienced Linux user so I have no problem working my way around the command line. As you can see I've been reasonably methodological in my approach, and have done my homework on the subject.

    Any help on getting this to boot would be much appreciated!

    I have the same mobo and cpu as you have, but with another gpu, and I have a decryption problem. Did you face any problem like that? It gets stuck at the light blue screen, and my mouse is working fine, but nothing happens, only my mouse turning into this beach ball and back to normal again. From what I know, it is either the kernel, or a decryption kext missing or colliding with the kernel. I'm new in the mac thing myself. If you could help me, I'd appreciate it a lot.
