iPC on ASUS P5n73-AM HELP!!!!!!
Well, this is my second attempt at installing OSX86.
My first attempt failed miserably, (My Hard Drive Died - Kalyway 10.5.2).
I am installing iPC 10.5.6 PPF5 (No its not the Dual Layer Version)
It would be nice if anyone can help me install it.
These are the specs for my computer:
Motherboard: ASUS P5N73-AM (nVidea GeForce 7050 / nForce 610i)
CPU: Intel Dual Core CPU E2200 2.20 GHz.
CD-ROM: LG DVD-ROM DRD8160B ATA Device
HDD: Hitachi HDP725050GLA360 ATA Device (500 GB)
* Partition 1: Windows 7 (78.13GB NTFS)
* Partition 2: Empty Space for OSX86 (39.06GB Un-Formatted)
* Partition 3: Documents, Multimedia (329.04GB NTFS)
* Partition 4: Music (19.53GB NTFS)
I have Windows 7 installed. I have the iPC 10.5.6 DVD Burned Ready-to-go.
Can I have Windows 7 installed on a NTFS partition?
What setting should I boot OSX86 with (-v?)
What should I format the partition to? HFS?
What things should I install? (Drivers, Kernels? )
How can I dual-boot it? (Windows 7, OSX)
Any drivers (kexts) I need to install to have everything working?
Ok, I burned the DVD. (iPC 10.5.6)
Booted it with the following settings in my BIOS.
SATA = AHCI
HDD S.M.A.R.T = ON
and everything else set to normal.
I booted with the -v flag
After a 30 seconds
The "Still Waiting For Root Device Error" pops up and nothing happens after that.
I really want to get this working, so if you can help me please do.
I know for a fact that others have also gotten this to working with the same Chipset as mine, but after googling i haven't had much luck.
