    Default Bootscreen freezes after 2 seconds

    Hi,

    I've read a lot of guides and howto's and stuff about how to install OS X on your computer so I decided to buy a Snow Leopard install DVD and try it out.
    First of all I have tried the iAktos v7 and installed it successfully but I didn't get the network to work properly..
    Anyways, I have the Snow Leopard DVD and I read that I'm suppose to boot up with the Boot 123 CD and then swap to the SL DVD etc.
    It finds the DVD and it tries to boot up on it but after a couple of seconds the screen just goes black and the computer hangs, nothing happens, the keyboard doesn't function etc. So I tried booting up in verbose mode to see whats up.
    And I got this:

    Text:

    Code:
    Darwin/x86 boot v5.0.132_dfe_r146_Chameleon_pre
    6143MB memory
    VESA v3.0 14MB (NVIDIA)
    
    Loading Darwin/x86
    Loading kernel mach_kernel
    Loading HFS+ file: [mach_kernel] from 422f700.
    Loading HFS+ file: [mach_kernel] from 422f700.
    
    _
    And then it just stands there and nothing happens..
    Does someone know how/if I can fix this?

    My motherboard is an Asus P5E3 Deluxe

    I also tried to installing from my USB flash drive using this method: Install Snow Leopard on Your Hackintosh PC, No Hacking Required - Hackintosh - Lifehacker

    After I formated my usb flash drive with SL DVD I ran "EP45UD3P Snow Leopard install package" as he said in the guide and it boots up and wants to start the installer but I get a kernel panic saying something about "Should have 2 Threads, but only found 3 for Die 1" etc etc, you can see the picture.

    So whats wrong here? Is it my motherboard thats not supported? That would be weird because I could successfully install iAktos v7!?
    Does anyone know if there is an iAktos or similar with Snow Leopad?


    Thanks,
    Patric

    EDIT:
    I have an Intel Quad Core 2.6GHz Q9450 processor

    Did you try booting with cpu=1 flag? If your BIOS has not been modded or if your not using a patched DSDT. You will always have to boot with said flag.

    that is an old bootloader...

    You should remove a dsdt.aml file in that usb installer..

    There is a snow leopard hazard distro for amd.
    good luck
    either way,the is the winner..

    No I haven't tried booting with that flag, I will try that when I get home from work! Thank you! How might I patch my DSDT? Is this GUI gonna work on Snow Leopard?
    http://pcwizcomputer.com/index.php?o...=150&Itemid=48

    I can't find any good guide that explains What I actually do. I would actually rather do it myself in the terminal than using a GUI, I've used Linux for over 5 years so I'm no stranger to terminal work

    As you might have noticed I'm totally new to the hackintosh scene but I was wondering if there is some kind of kext software that checks what hardware I'm running and see if there is some supported kext's!? For me the hackintosh scene is some what of a jungle with all the kext's and patches and everything so it would be nice with some help along the way

    Great, thanks! I will try that if I don't get this to run!

    No problem my pleasure . About the patcher your guess is as good as mine lol! I don't use them because they don't take into account for somethings. If you have Windows on the box your trying to run OSX you can do it manually. Download IASL compiler (not the microsoft one) extract it, cd to the location and run:

    Code:
    iasl -g

    This will dump your DSDT. Open it in a text editor and remove the first 4 Alias strings the code will look similiar to this:

    Before


    Code:
    {
        Scope (_PR)
        {
            Processor (P001, 0x01, 0x00000810, 0x06) {}
            Alias (P001, CPU1)
            Processor (P002, 0x02, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
            Alias (P002, CPU2)
            Processor (P003, 0x03, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
            Alias (P003, CPU3)
            Processor (P004, 0x04, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
            Alias (P004, CPU4)
        }

    After


    Code:
    {
        Scope (_PR)
        {
            Processor (P001, 0x01, 0x00000810, 0x06) {}
            Processor (P002, 0x02, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
            Processor (P003, 0x03, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
            Processor (P004, 0x04, 0x00000000, 0x00) {}
        }
    Save the file. Then use IASL to compile it


    Code:
    iasl DSDT.dsl
    This of course is assuming you named it DSDT. This will leave you with a file called DSDT.aml, copy this to root if using Leopard or Extra if on Snow (extra will work on leopard too) and this will allow OSX to see all cores. I liked the fact that you said would like to do it manually so now you know.


    Also you can do the same on Linux just check the syntax and of course use the linux compiler

    Where can I find a newer one? I downloaded the Boot 123 disk from a torrent site so I don't know where to find a newer one..
    Any suggestions on something similar with a newer bootloader?
    search and read around for empireEFI. It's similar but newer.
    ..or
    Download the distro and play with the boot switch to boot it..
    goodluck
    either way,the is the winner..

    Hey K1piee you mentioned that you know your way around Linux and you asked about a tool for hardware. There is a version of LSPCI for both Leopard and Snow . Also you seemed cool enough so should you want a custom BIOS PM me.

    Okey thank you guys for all the help you gave me! I now have a fully working Snow Leopard on my hackintosh just some minor tweaks here and there

    I just have one question, what linux filesystem can OS X read and write?
    I have a lot of stuff on my other harddrives that I want to access from here but currently I can't So I will have to change the filesystem on my disks so both Linux and OS X can read and write to them!


    Thanks for all the help!
