    Unhappy Please please help : Stuck on Loading HFS+ file

    Greetings Hackintoshers,

    After posting on other forums and getting no help at all, I am hoping for some help here.....

    I've got a Compaq CQ60-210US (AMD), and I would appreciate any guidance as to how I should move past the following line during the bootup of iDeneb 1.4 (OS X 10.5.7)

    "Loading HFS+ file: [/System/Library/Extensions.mkext] from 4230a80"
    Screenshot link

    I've tried the "CPUs=1" "-f -x -v" options to no avail.

    Thank you.

    -Gam101


    Compaq CQ60-210US : AMD Athlon X2 QL-62 Dual-Core Processor, RAM 2048MB, 320GB WD HD, NVIDIA GeForce 8200M.

    It would be better if you could post your system specs, relevant to OSX installation only.

    First off, sincerely, thank you for the reply.

    Please find links to the screen-shots for the specs. of my Compaq CQ60;

    Chipset : NVIDIA nForce MCP77MV

    Wifi : Broadcom 4322AG 802.11 a/b/g/draft-n WiFi Adapter Broadcom


    I have been frustrated with the lack of any help from the various forums, so I ditched iDeneb & tried Leo4All-AMD. It has fared better with Leo4All & the "-L -x -v" options. However, I am now stuck on "Loading HFS+.....TMSafetyNet.kext" (screen shot below)

    Do you suggest I stick with Leo4All or go back to iDeneb?

    Again, thank you for the reply, the help, and your time.

    You're welcome.

    The differences between distros are just your hardware kexts/drivers, OSX itself isn't much.

    Find out your HDD and DVD type. In your BIOS, under SATA option if you have AHCI.

    The messsage is usually related to preboot/config files, if your BIOS setup/boot options or iso file damaged.

    ratvn, thank you explaining the differences between the distros.

    Since your last helpful post, I have updated my BIOS & there are no options in the BIOS for SATA, period. So, essentially, AHCI is out of the question.

    Please note that I burned Leo4All @ 8x with data verification enabled after the burn. And the burn completed successfully. Yes, the ISO itself could be damaged.

    I could try obtaining the ISO again & repeat the process, however, there are others who are experiencing the same exact issue and that leads me to the thought that perhaps the cause is something else. Of course, I will consider any advise you give.

    Should I now try a different distro? Like Kalyway. I thought Leo4All-AMD was going be the golden egg for me since I have an AMD proc.

    Thank you again.

    ratvn, I just wanted to update you that I have verified the checksum (MD5) of the Leo4All.iso & it matches. I'll try to burn @ 4x & retry.

    Please let me know if you have any other ideas. Thank you.

    I got your questions, but I run out of time going for treatment.
    So here are the short answers as far as installation concerned: your CPU is supported with Voodoo kernel for Leopard, Legacy kernel with SL, no need for video driver as generic VESA mode should get to to desktop.

    Your only problem, if there is no SATA AHCI and the HDD is SATA, is to find a distro that has the correct chipsets/southbridge SATA/IDE driver, and preboot configuration that can start the installer (assuming that all BIOS options are correctly set).

    The error message would be with preboot/loading of OSX installer, most likely if your iso/file are checked out.

    IPC could be good choice as well. Some of distro releases have correct nForce chipsets drivers, and try to go with the newer release of 10.5.x if you could as it would have better support for your hardware.

    Also should use some boot option

    -x -v cpus=1 (and busratio=20 if needed)

    ratvn, thank you for the info., again. I hope you are feeling better too.

    I am in the process of obtaining iPC 10.5.6, the universal release. And reading up on iPC, I came across some interesting info., and I would appreciate your comment on it.

    According to the creators of iPC, "There will be NO new iPC DVD for Snow Leopard. Hacked DVDs are the way of the past, and retail installations are the future."

    Excuse my ignorance, I thought that the only way to get Mac OS X onto a PC (in my case a laptop with a SATA HD), was to use a hacked distro of Mac OS X!

    So does that imply that one can get a retail Mac OS X & then use some patches to create a bootable DVD for a PC? If so, my concern are drivers & installing them after the OS X has been installed.

    Meanwhile, I will give iPC a go with your suggestions install options & research my SATA chipset.

    Thank you again.
