Problem installing Leopard iDeneb 10.5.5 on my laptop
I'm new to this forums, since whenever i needed help i could use google and find an answer about Leopard iDeneb 10.5.5 (Hackintosh version). It runs successfuly on my home PC (with dual boot). It's great and everything for working but a little poor for gaming (the only reason i have dual boot with vista). Since i realized, that my older laptop (Acer TravelMate 2413NLMi), has a SSE2 (using cpu-z and Avarest...) Intel Celeron M processor 370, i tried to install just MAC on it, since it's not good to play games anymore (so it would be just for work). First of all, these are all System specs of my laptop.
//System specs of my laptop
Intel Celeron M processor 370 (1.5GHz, 400MHz FSB, 1MB L2 cache)
DVD-Dual double layer
(added another 256MB back then)2x 256MB DDR2 = 512MB
Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset family
802.11b/g wireless LAN
So... Before an installation of MAC i had Windows XP SP2 in 2 particions. I just simply boot the MAC DVD and erased the whole disk. Then i created a new partition MAC OS (journaled), named it "Mac OS X", and install mac on that partition. The only custom adds I add was 9.4.0 StageXNU and wireless driver for Atheros (AR5005G).
The problem began, when the installation was complete and the whole laptop restarted... I got dvd out of the dvd rom and wait for mac to start up... I realized that MAC got a little Gray cross on its logo and i left it out for more than 10minuts and nothing happened. So I restarted and used -v boot option and i saw that it just shown a looped message "Still waiting for root device". So i googled with different suggestions, like my laptop isn't compatible, or try to change something in bios (on laptop i have VERY small options to change -Phoenix bios, and for that i can't find those functions), or try to do something with external Hard disk or DVD drive. Since I borrowed from a friend an External DVD drive i wonder how to bypass that message so that MAC will boot. Can't find instructions or a tutorial anywhere...
So I'm asking for your help and hopefully get one :).
I really want to have MAC 10.5.5 on my laptop!!! :( :hack:
Thank you for your help
