Reboot loop in Darwin With KalyWay 10.5.1 & HCL board ?
Before I begin, here are the specs I'm working with.
PcChips P23G motherboard (on HCL)
Intel Celeron 3.46Ghz
1 gig DDR2 3200
60 gig IDE HD, I forget the brand. formatted clean.
IDE DVD player.
I've heard people have installed KalyWay with this exact MB and CPU, so I'm hoping it's possible.
After burning several copies of KalyWAy10.5.1 at low speeds, I initially couldn't get past a slew of EBIOS errors. I tried several IDE configurations between jumper settings and cable positions between the HD and DVD drive. The only way that worked was my current setup, DVD drive is connected VIA an IDE to USB adapter, and the HD is connected to the MASTER IDE.
I can now get to the Darwin boot screen, and even get through about 20 minutes worth of kext files loading (maybe all of them? I'm not sure). Problem is after that 20 minute period my computer reboots, and I'm back tot he Darwin boot screen.
I've hit F8, entered in "cpus=1 -v -f", "-v -f", "TOHKERNEL" "VANILLA" and no change. After 20 minutes of kext files I still reboot. Any thoughts? I've seen many, many forum posts on this exact issue, haven't come across anyone with a resolution or cause though.
I haven't owned a mac since the classic, looking to give the OS a look over before I drop big money.
Thanks for any advice.
