Startup Apple with startup audio but no video
After installing ideneb 1.5.1 on my system when it restarts it goes to the apple screen, the wheel spins then stops and that start up music plays but the video dosent and if i click keys i hear like a chime sound in the background.
I tried booting in verbouse mode but the same thing happens it reaches the end of the text and just stays at the black screen with text while the startup audio plays.
1 gig ram
when I use
it says cant find graphics
when i use this
/sbin/mount -uw /
The computer reboots and still freezes at apple loading screen and the start up music sounds again
I noticed that i was typing the code incorrect after adjusting the system boots up and after a while freezes on the apple loading screen.
Well I tried installing again this time installing the NVKush driver, I get the same results.
Next I used the ipc disc but replaced the default voodoo 9.5.0 kernel used to boot with the 9.2.0 kernel used to boot the leo4all disc (voodoo 9.5.0 causes kernel panics the only kernels that I know work are 9.2.0 speed step, sleep and Qoopz 9.7.0) After installing ipc it rebooted went to apple loading screen, the spinning circle thing below the apple logo stoped spinning and the startup music began to play. Clicking keys on keyboard caused a sound to go off as if I was in the menu.
I also tried ideneb using a nvidia 5400 fx with the NVkush which yielded the same results.
Can someone please tell me why leo4all is the only build that will properly work?
Hey there, this is your video card? nvidia 5400? did you try to boot with -x -f? can you please post your full specs? and how did you customize

I have no idea on the motherboard
its an old sony computer
all I selected to install was the Qoopz 9.7.0 ac97 audio and Chameleon 2.0-RC2
I did mess around with different variations of chipsets also
ok I did a little research and im almost sure the mobo chipset is intel i865 chipset

Well I finally decided to give up, this isn't my computer I'm installing OSX on btw it my younger brothers. I decided to just use leo4all 4.1 and its working just fine. I do however have a few inquires. For one the graphics card, I know its old and all but I would like some drivers for it. I have read somewhere that Natit would work? where exactly would I find natit for my card and if for some reason it didnt work what exactly is the code I would have to type in chameleon to remove it. The other question I have is I want to install ilife09 and perhaps safari4, but ilife and safari requires a higher level of the os that i currently have and I cant update it.
Another question is that i have both a cd and dvd drive connected through ide but they don't show up in the system unless I insert a disc then they work. How do I get disc utility's and that eject switch on the top to work?
I ran into a problem. When I installed leo4all i created a fat partition for me to install windows. I just installed windows and can no longer access the chameleon bootloader. How can I boot back into the mac partition?
I got the mac partition to be read as primary using the acronis boot disc but now I cant boot from it unless the leo4all disc is in.
The chameleon bootloader no longer starts up
used osx86 tools to repair mbr

ok I want to Update my Graphics card.
what would be recommended as a guaranteed compatible AGP 8X graphics card that is quite good for under $50
