    Smile Welcome screen - and no more

    Heya guys! First time trying Mac OSX out and unfortionately I've already had a few issues; so far to date, things have been really good.

    Currently I am trio-booting Acer Aspire 8920G using GRUB as the bootloader (modified, of course) and can successfully boot all three OS's (Vista, Ubuntu, OSX), however.. The problem I am having is on OSX where when I boot it, it loads fine, gets to the setup screen and no more, After saying "welcome" in about 90 languages (the flash intro) it just seems to keep looping it, I was wondering if there was a fix? I can certainly reinstall OSX if that is needed, I am new to this, so please have patience when dealing with me? ^^ I will try my best! Again, thanks for your time and appreciate any help.. PS scanned the forums a bit, and found nothing That's why I am trying a new post!

    Furthermore, the OSX distro I have installed is: Kaloway: 10.5.2

    It brings me to the final screen of the registration window; "Do you already own a mac?" and after selecting "Do not transfer my information now" I hit "continue", after waiting a small amount of time, it loops the welcome screen again, then right after that, it goes back to the registration window...so on, so forth.

    Found solution!:

    Try

    1. Run single user mode using the -s flag while booting i.e. type -s at the "boot:" prompt and wait for the prompt ":/ root#" to appear, type each of the following lines, followed by Enter and then waiting for ":/ root#" to re-appear.

    2. Mount the file system by typing "mount -uw /" (without quotes) at the ":/ root#" prompt.
    3. Change the root password by typing "passwd root" at the ":/ root#" prompt and then typing in a new root password and retyping it again as requested.
    4. Create the .AppleSetupDone file by typing
    "touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone" (without quotes) at the ":/ root#" prompt
    5. Boot the system by typing "exit" (without quotes) at the ":/ root#" prompt.

    6. Reboot from HDD with "-v -f" and the OS X Login screen is presented; enter "root" as Name and for Password, the root password chosen previously, and the system logs you in as System Administrator.

    Heya there again guys! Appreicate all the help and great forums btw! Lots of useful information to get someone who is not fimilar with Mac systems,,,

    however, I would like to ask for assistance once again in getting my network card working? Once this is done I can get off the public computers and do the rest of the work at home, instead of being rushed by time constrains.

    Great to know I mighit not be the only person experiencing this issue due to the numnber of readers here! I hope this helped you as it has helped me. My computer is no longer looping welcome screen! And after the network card is installed, I hope that I can get a lot of different mods on Mac. Anyways.. Back to the network card issue?

    LAN - Chip Atheros according to a google search (info hardware.info)


    And I did a bit more forum searching to get this working ^^ Might be useful to others experiencing though! Perhaps consider adding the solution to one of the sticky threads? Saves a bit of time!

    If you'd searched the fourms you would have found i posted a solution to that problem not to long ago here

    It's a very common problem and very frustrating.
    You can use CPU-Z also, which is a free alternative to everest.

    If I helped please give a thumbs up , Thanks (Leave your username and I'll try to give you a thumbs up back)

    Hackintosh finally working, thanks to icchansan - Want Mac on your PC ? Start by reading this FAQ
