If you think you can help me install OSX86 I will paypal you 20$
Hey, I need help with installing OSX86.
I've been searching and searching and nothing is helping me out. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, which I problem am, if you can work with me and help me install OSX86 I will glady paypal you 20$. I will only paypal after the install is done and my computer is booting. there is a few post on insanelymac that say they have accomplished it, and I think I'm doing what they are saying but maybe I'm not and this is where you come in.
Here is the components within my PC
CPU: Intel i7 920
Motherboard: MSI x58 Platinum
Hard Drive: 3 Sata Hard Drives, 1 of which is a 32 GB SSD drive.
Ram:6 Sticks thats = 9 GB ddr 3 1066. 3x1gb and 3x2gb
So far I have tried,
XXX 10.5.6 - Reboots prior to install (cant get to install screen)
iPC 10.5.6 - Reboots prior to install (cant get to install screen)
iAtkos 5i - Reboots prior to install (cant get to install screen)
iDeneb 1.3 (I think) 10.5.5 - Only shows external hard drive but it does install on external hard drive but once trys to boot up it reboots.
contact me though here or msg me on one of my messengers any time
more is not always better
Sounds like you might have mixed memory.
You are in virgin territory - and mixed memory - even lots - will always cause a panic in a kernel.
As to your offer of payment - you need to get one guy and go with it - and consulting is always by the hour or job effort paid whether successful or not. It is a TIME thing - not a "success thing"
I am an Unix engineer, and I can tell you that you need to roll back some of your hardware and get a successful install first and then add the parts back in one at a time to see if they work added to the system and if not what panics the thing. This is support SOP for any guy who has half a clue on how to build systems. Even mainframes were built and trouble shot this way
I have worked at IBM, Nynex, Delta airlines, MSN and Microsoft all in systems and special builds, and I am a Certified Novell Netware UNIXWARE engineer. I have worked with Linux since 1994 and I have been doing this over 20 years - and I can tell you any one of our fully loaded systems would never install - but would take the items one at a time after the OS was working and sane.
The I7 can address that amount of memory, but the kernel in practical applications always needs tweaking for esoteric setups like yours.
Just working with you to get the hardware "ready" to go is going to cost way more than $40 if you really want to get this going
There is a pretty enlightening discussion on the apple support site at Apple - Support - Discussions - How come the maximum memory size on new ...
Roll it back to a basic machine with minimum memory and try to install first - then go up a little at a time.
That's all I'll offer for "free"; but it should be enough to get you farther than you are now.
