    Post Installing iDeneb Need Help

    Hello i am new to OSX on a windows PC.

    I have read all over the internet for many many hours on how to install on my windows PC. I have tried many things to get it installed. I have failed everytime.

    Distros i have tried are..,

    iPC x86
    iATKOs_v7
    iDeneb 1.4 10.5.6

    Right now i am asking for help for installing iDeneb 1.4 10.5.6.

    My PC Hardware is.
    Intel E8400
    Mobo ASUS P5N73-AM / NVIDIA GeForce 7050 / nForce 610i chipset
    RAM DDR2 4GB 800 MHZ
    Sata HD 465GB OS:Win 7 Ultimate
    Slave IDE HD 30GB : Fat32 Formated Empty
    Master IDE DVDWR Drive
    Nvida Geforce 8800 GT

    My Mobo Bios is updated to current. I will post pictures of all my bios and boot screen errors so i can give you all the info im experincing.

    Here is the problem... I use -v -x cpus=1 to boot iDeneb 1.4 10.5.6 and i get errors then my dvd drive light just stops blinking and nothing happens, which means i cant get past the grey apple screen on a normal boot to install osx. =(

    Here is the boot errors

    You may need to set your BIOS for OSX installation.
    But the first thing is that the error where OSX got stuck is usually meant bad DVD or media/corrupted iso, and/or DVD hardware. So you could reburn it with good media at slowest speed and see if it would go further.

    Ty for the help you got me along closer to install OSX.

    I changed my DVD Drive and then i disabled the usb 2.0 controller and the usb legacy support in the bios. Then booted iDeneb. I got past the grey apple screen and got to the disk utility and made a partition on the 30 gb ide hard drive. The journaled setting i picked. Then went forward to install on the hard drive. Before i clicked install i clicked customize. In there was a ton of options. I did my best to pick the right options. Then i installed. It finsihed installing and it rebooted. Now i have a new problem. When i boot into the installation i go to the grey apple screen and nothing happens it just sits there for a few mins and then an icon of a circle with a stripe going across appears on the apple like nothing is reading and no hard drive light is on. I do not know for sure what to do next except to install different settings on the customization menu on the iDeneb DVD. I also know that there is some patches but i dont know which ones to select. After the install is complete and the computer reboots i boot using -v and then the error i get is "waiting for root device".

    If anyone out there knows what i should select or do let me know. Ill keep on trying and get this to work somehow.

    BIOS settings:
    SATA AHCI, but if IDE drive is used then may not needed.
    Power option/ACPI S3
    USB, 2.0 enable, legacy disabled

    As for custom selection, you need to select IDE/SATA controller and in this setup, the nForce chipsets driver. Without it, OSX can't see your hard drive and will result in waiting for root device (the partition/volume for OSX).

    Try that and see how it goes.
    If you make it through the installation process then most likely OSX should be running IF you make the selections correctly.

    Thank you for all the help. What you said was right on i must pick a sata/ide setting and in the iDeneb DVD i burned there was no setting to pick sata/ide. I gave up on iDeneb and retried to install iAtkos v7. I failed again with iAtkos v7. I then wondered why i kept failing cause after the install i would always get "waiting for root device". I found a way to fix it. When installing in the customizations options i was picking sata/ide drivers for my chipset "i610". After reading through a thread here on the forum it was posted that with the i610 chipset you must pick the generic sata/ide setting after i picked that i finished the install and now everything works perfect!!! Now im going install this on a Intel 915G chipset cause my fiance wants it and wont let me use OSX on my PC unless i get hers working. lol I hope i can get it to work.^^;

    Glad to hear you got it. Congrats. Job well done!

    For your video card ATI ATY_init.kext should be a good one and should get you full QE/CI supported. Use Kext Helper b7 as kext installer. You can get it at kexts.com.

    Thank you for coming back to let me know and sharing your solution.

    Regards
