    Default Restart after power-up@Gray Apple Screen[iPC]

    I installed iPC 10.5.6 on my notebook, and the install went fine, but when powering on, after my computer reaches the gray screen with the apple in the middle, after a second, my computer shuts off and restarts. I launched with the -f bootflag, and tried safemode, but neither got me any further.
    any ideas?

    List your hardware and show where the system hangs when booting with "-v" flag. That's the best place to start.

    When I boot with the "-v" flag it doesn't help. The reset is so quick that the text onscreen is gone faster than it is possible to read. Maybe I can shoot my monitor with a video camera, maybe that will work

    I'll try that. Will that put me down to one processor permanently? or is there some sort of fix i can use after?

    EDIT: i disabled dual-core in the bios and now it doesn't instantly restart, but it's taking a long time to load. as in, 10 minutes. I restarted, but it's doing the same thing. Not getting past gray apple screen, but the wheel is spinning.

    what's given is:
    MAC Framework successfully initialized
    using 10485 buffer headers and 4069 cluster IO buffer headers
    IOAPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 64:87

    -then nothing, just stops doing anything, except spinning the loading circle.

    Default Gray Apple Screen

    I get the same problem as I've seen a few others installing 10.5.6:
    Installation seems to go well.
    When it gets to the end - and I select OK for reboot, whether it tries to boot from CD or disk, the first time it gets a kernel panic.
    Power off, restart, eject CD, boot w/ no options takes me to the gray apple screeen. Nothing else.
    boot with -v, and the messages scroll by far too quickly to read and I get a blank screen
    I am able to see that it starts in a small font, then changes to a larger font, then a blank (black) screen (or the gray apple screen if I didn't use the -v option).

    Any help to this novice would be appreciated.


    MB: Asus M3A78-EM
    CPU: AMD Athlon X2 7750 (though system profiler during install shows Intel Core Duo)
    Disk: Seagate ST3500320NS SATA (500 gb)
    Chipset (onboard) AMD 780G / SB700
    Graphics: Integrated ADI Radeon HD 3200 GPU
    No external graphics card

    BIOS - SATA Config set to AHCI
    I've tried installing on IDE and on SATS/AHCI drives. Same result
