Black Screen on boot!
Ok, well i have been playing with the Mac install for about a week and I can't get it to work! I am using iPC with Leopard 10.5.6 with a
3.20 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor
Gigabyte GA-MA790X-DS4 Motherboard
6 Gigabytes of RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS Display Adapter
1 1 TB Segate SATA Hard Drive which has Windows 7 on it
1 500 Gb Maxtor SATA Hard Drive which I will be using for Mac
At first I started out with some com.apple.Boot/Library... error which I eventually was able to fix thanks to this fourm and InsanelyMac! But then on my second attempt I got an error saying "still waiting on root device" Then I was able to fix that by changing my SATA Drives from Native IDE settings to "SATA-->AHCI" quoted from BIOS. But now comes my current problem where it looks like its booting correctly because it even in -v mode the screen goes completey black like its going to start up but freezes in that inbetween stage!
Thanks to anyone who will be able to help me!
did you try to boot with cpus=1 -v -x? or with another distro
yes I have tried -x and -s and -v. But not cpus=1. Unfortunately the problem isn't the loading screen its once you get past it thats the problem so I'm not able to view any errors even in -v because again its after the start up screen. :(
you can put all that in one line, why dont you try?
o ok i will try that I didn't know you could put it all on one line. I will let you know once I try it
