iPC OSX86 Installed, but will not boot into Leopard!
I've come a long way since kalyway wouldn't even load the installer
I used iPC and it's managed to successfully install twice
the first time it would continually restart
this time, it loads and then just has the white underscore blinking on the page and nothing else
it hasn't crashed, i can ctrl-alt-del any time without problems
it just won't boot into osx!
anyone help me with this?
all I can say is ... ( and it's been said over and over again )
1. Choose the right kernel
2. Choose the right chipset drivers
that's the absolute minimum ... and pick ONLY one kernel ( if you have AMD cpu, pick the XNU VooDoo kernel ) and ONE chipset driver ..this is NOT Windoze
If you do know your hardware well and know which driver works then by all means pick them during the installation ... otherwise you can install them later ,, Don't worry if you get crappy resolution and evrything else don't work .. get it boot up first ...
First time boot up after installation ..it is recommended to boot up with -f -v flag ( if you see the white screen with the apple logo .. you will either get a kernel panic, endless reboots or it hangs ) or cpus=1. The -v is for verbose mode and will show what the system is doing during the boot process ( the white screen with apple logo is just fluff and hides this )
While your installation is work in progress, ALWAYS boot with the -v flag .. Once you get things down pat, then try it without the -v flag
and you will get kernel panics ... do not despair ...boot with -x ( for safe mode ) and do your fixes in that mode and remember what you did .. if you install a kext and get a kernel panic after a reboot, undo you changes ( delete the kext and replace it with the known working one .. MAKE BACKUPS ) and try again

So it's just trial and error with the kernels? I've not chosen any kernel to install when customising the install - just the video drivers and nothing else...

Although I appreciate that there are hundreds of people who, although have a good understanding of computing, are complete newbs at installing pirate operating systems - it is only because there aren't answers to some really simple questions, so I end up taking three to a hundred times as long figuring things out by myself. Granted, that's probably the best way to learn something really well - but I would much rather get the help when I need it since frustration doesn't lead anywhere.
This forum has been useless for me, unfortunately
Ipc installed fine but stuck on boot
I have recently installed 2 different versions of IPC,
The install went perfectly fine on both. I have read some posts from people about being able to choose different kernals and load drivers for graphics and such.
I am working with a dell dimension e310. I have not changed anything from the factory when it came. I have taken out all devices except whats necessary to boot and run. I have a usb keyboard and mouse and i use the onboard video.
GG870 Processor, 80547, PENTIUM 4 PRESCOTT DT..., 521 LGA, G1
intel pro ve 10/100 network
82915g/gv/910gl express chipset video
Thats all i could find from the dell website on parts for the computer.
The issue is (from the title) i loaded both os's perfectly fine, but when it boots from the hard drive it hangs at the Apple logo. I have given it time to see what it does, still nothing. I went into command at startup and did -v, all i get there is like 6 lines that go so quick i cant read and it goes to the apple logo screen. I have also typed -x for safe mode and goes to apple logo screen and sits. If someone could please point me in the right direction or knows exactly what i need to do, can you please help. I really want to get this working.

iPC 10_5_6 does not boot
I'm really new to mac and mac osx86.
I've been trying to install the iPC version of mac osx86 version and it does not boot. I've been trying -f, -x and it wasn't working and with verbose (-v) I just don't have the time to read on screen commands before it reboot.
I first try the kalyway 10.5.2 version and it was working really well, i download nvinject drivers and everything was running well and fast, I had one problem, network connection was lost after about 10 minutes... (A problem that is not really acceptable.. but I was confident that this problem could be solved)
So after that, I read that the iPC version was better and as I saw, more up to date (10.5.6 vs 10.5.2), so I download it and I've been trying to install it, the install was working but never asked me to choose a kernel or anything else, i just clicked next as I did for kalyway version, but it was working for the kalyway version.
Core 2 duo E7300
Geforce 7300 GT (work well with nvinject)
Realtek lan card
Seagate IDE hard drive
PCChips P53G Motherboard - v1.0 (I know this is a crappy mobo)
Kingston 2GB 667mhz RAM
I also have a western digital caviar 1TB SATA hard drive formatted in NTFS and it is not recognized by osx (in disk manager, it wasn't show), do you know why?
So.. Sorry for my really bad english and that too long posts but I would be really happy if you could find the problem.
Maybe your opinion is not the same about kalyway vs iPC... what do you suggest me?
So i'm interrested to know all I can know.. I'm amazed using mac on my pc.
I'm a noob in mac, but i'm studing in informatics and I am pretty good in windows.. and computers.. if it could be helpful for you.

I keep getting stuck at the boot screen (white screen with apple logo) i've tried with -f -v flag, -v flag and -x for safe mode and nothing is working. can someone please help me?
Hi, here are my specs:
HP COMPAQ dc7100

I'm trying to get OSX to boot on my PC (after installation) but it keeps rebooting so fast that I can't read the potential error messages.
Here's what I've done so far:
1. Using the "iPC_OSx86_10.5.6.iso" DVD, I managed to boot the installation process (tough I had to disable my Ethernet adapter in BIOS, else it would give me the "AppleBCM5751Ethernet have a 5721" error, seen using -v flag, and then it would simply hang) and the installation process went *very* well. I really thought it would work! All my USB components (external HD, mouse, keyboard) and even the video adapter were all working very well. So, I formated my second HD and didn't use any custom installation (it is said in the readme file that it uses the Vanilla kernel by default and since my chipset is Intel, I bet it's the right one to use).
2. After the installation process, I removed my installation DVD, then I input the -f flag to make it refresh the kernel extensions on first boot, but my computer keeps on rebooting and even tough I put the -v flag, it goes so fast I can't read the potential error messages. Since I had luck disabling my ethernet adapter, I also tried to disable my audio adapter, but same thing happened.
I also tried to boot the "SnowOSX_Universal_10.6(432)GM-v3.5.iso" DVD, but that one never actually went as far as getting into the installation process. It would actually do the same thing (reboot really quickly after the computer powers up) without letting me read the potential error codes.
I'm ready to try anything you tell me to make OSX work on my PC. Bombard me with suggestions, please, I've got nothing to lose to try them all. Even if you tell me to download another 4GB iso file, I'll give it a try.
NOTE: I am currently downloading a third iso file named "iATKOS 7i 10.5.7 DVD for Intel/AMD" and I'll try it tomorrow.
Hi, today, I've tried two different flavors:
This one installed fine and to my surprise, my network adapter driver was available to install upfront. So I checked this component and nothing else. On computer reboot, I saw the Charmeleon boot manager and when I chose my "OSX" drive, it would reboot instantly, displaying "efi_inject_get_devprop_string NULL trying stringdata" in the top left corner of the screen for a very short moment. I had to reboot like 10 times to write this down on a sheet of paper. Googling it gave results such as "the devprop string being null isn't important. We don't use anything that requires it." so I believe it's not the error that makes my computer reboot... so this flavor doesn't run either on my computer it seems. Tried -x -v -f, none of them led me further.
This one also installed fine and had my network adapter driver available as an installation component so I checked it. Upon reboot it went into Charmeleon and even tough it was still rebooting (like all other flavors) I found that this one actually displayed "Starting Darwin" at the top left corner for like 2 seconds, then... it reboots. Tried -x -v -f, none of them led me further.
PLEASE HELP ME IF YOU HAVE A CLUE!
Waiting for your suggestions bombardment!!
NOTE: Seriously, the part I REALLY don't get is why all of those flavors boot up just fine using the DVD, install just fine and they all don't boot up using the HD. I mean, what's really different from booting up the DVD than the HD? And the most important question is what the f--- is wrong with my computer not booting up ANY flavors after they all installed correctly?
