Leopard will not start
I recently installed iDeneb 1.4 10.5.6 on my pc. The installation went well with this distro whereas other distros just gave me a looping restart. However, when I tried to start-up Leopard it only gave me the apple gray background. I tried the -v -f, even the cpus=1 boot option and it worked only up to the MAC environment initialization part then nothing.
My specs are as follows:
CPU: Intel Core2Duo E6550
Mobo: MSI G31M V2 (MS-7379)
Gfx Card: Nvidia 8400 GS
My Installation Customization:
- ICHx Fix
- NVInject 256mb
- Shutdown/Restart Fix
Can anyone please advice as to what I've done wrong and what can I do to makes this work? Thanks in advance.
In your place I would try a different distro. The iPC OSx86 10.5.6 Universal Final distro. I had troubles using all the distros but iPC worked for me. See if it works for you.
Try iAktos or as said above, iPC.
Thanks for the prompt replies!
I tried iATKOS v7 just after posting and I managed to make the installation work with cpus=1 option. The chameleon 2 gui is cool but iATKOS is a no go even with cpus=1 -f option. I also tried verbose -v with -x safe mode but same thing. I'm stuck at the line saying waiting for "IOkit to quiesce"

iPC gave me restarting loop during installation. Do I need to flash my bios with modded ROM? I downloaded OMN's 7379v73 mod but I am not sure whether it is compatible with my main board MS-7379.
