My first attempt at installing OSx86 not going too well...
Hello all, I am a long time Windows PC user who is very interested in learning about the Mac OS. I have 10+ years professional experience with windows based computers. One thing I enjoy about trying to install OSx86 is the thrill of learning something new. So here is my situation:
I have downloaded the latest iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6 distro and burned it to a DVD. Next, my test box is a Compaq with the following specs:
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Processor
Motherboard: M2N68-LA (ASUS)
Chipset: NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
Memory: 2 x 1GB DDR2-667
Hard Drive: Seagate 250GB SATA2
Optical Drive: Samsung DVD+RW SATA
Audio Chipset: Realtek ALC888
Video Card: XFX GeForce 8600GT PCIe 256MB
USB Wireless Keyboard + Mouse
My issue is that when I try to boot from the disc the apple logo appears and the "working" icon swirls but never does anything else. Furthermore I did some research and tried hitting F8 then used -v I get the following screen -
This seems to me like it cannot find my hard drive. Does anyone have a suggestion that I can try next?
