OS X on MSI K9A2/AMD Phenom System
So I've been trying to get an installation of OS X running on my homebuilt quad core phenom system. I've got the BIOS configured pretty benignly, and have been working with the Iatkos 4a and iDeneb Leopard installs.
The iDeneb won't even boot the install CD past "waiting for root..."
I managed to get the iAtkos to install with -v -f -x cpus1, but now when I try and startup off the hard disk drive, it's caught in a continual reboot pattern.
A combination of -v and the pause button got me to this point:
it's referencing something in /system.kext/plugins/system6 right before the screen flashes to black and the machine reboots.
I also recently bought an HP Pavilion dv4-1435 and would very much like to get the Mac OS running on it, but am a bit concerned that I'll end up with a plastic brick if I try...
Did you try with lawless distro or kalyway?
HP Pavilion Elite m9250f
Snow Leopard 10.6.6, Asus IPIBL-LB MOD BIOS, Intel Quad Core Q6600, 4GB RAM (800mhz), 2x500GB, nVidia 8600GT (Works), ALC888S (Works), Wireless RT73 (Works), LAN (Works) - How to Install

However, then upon reboot I end up waiting for the root device forever.
So far, no luck with Leos4all, iAtkos, iDeneb, or Kalway.
It's too bad that iDeneb won't get as far as the installer, because after trying that distro on my eee pc, it seems as if the installer has enough of the kexts to get the big beast going.

You'll have to live with that
latest option you could do is JaS
Actually, I got the thing going. With iDeneb 10.5.6; the catch was I had to boot off an external USB drive. I also installed to an external USB hard drive.
