installing ideneb 1.5 (10.5.8) on AMD Athlon with nVidia chipset.. help!
I got OS X working on my pentium4, and i thought that was hard. using it right now because it is so much easier to use than windows. (not to mention easier to read !)
anyways, on my AMD, i tried the iatkos v1.5 distro to boot it into the installer. it gets far enough with no tags to get to the gray apple screen, then after about 5 minutes the 'error' symbol comes up. (the circle with a line through it) at the top of the apple.
so i reboot, and use -V, and this is what it gives me:
"Still waiting for root device", over and over again, for about 3 minutes, then it says 'IOATA device blocking bus'.
I have read that that is due to the nVidia chipset; however, i do see the drivers for the chipset being loaded just prior to the 'root device' error. I have tried booting with -v -x -f, and same problem.
here are the system specs
AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.8GHz 5600+
abit NF-M2SV motherboard
500GB Sata hard drive
Sony Sata dvd-rw drive
Realtek 5.1 built in audio
PCI-E Geforce 7950GT 512MB
