    Default Dell Studio i3 330M kernel panic

    I'm currently getting a kernel panic while using Tonymac iBoot Supported with the 10.4.0 Darwin Kernel and a 10.6 Retail DVD. I can't even get to the install screen. Here is the KP:

    "CPU 0
    com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform (1.3) @0x55414000 -> 0x55454fff
    dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOACPIFamily (1.3.0) @ 0x55182000
    dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily (2.6) @ 0x55374000

    BSD process name corresponding to current thread: kernel_task"

    I've tried other versions of iBoot and have gotten even more KPs. Out of curiosity, I added a USB keyboard and mouse (my computer is a laptop by the way), and got the same KP, but the "CPU 0" changed to "CPU 2". Not sure if this is helpful at all. I've used -x and cpus=1 as my options. Does anyone have an idea as to what the problem may be? Should I try removing a stick of RAM to go to less than 4 GB? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.




    Specs:
    Dell Studio 1749
    Intel i3-330M
    Intel HD Graphics
    6 gigs RAM
    Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200
    I will specify any other specs if needed

    That is one of your problem there. That 10.6.4 won't look very good with it

    Hello,

    I have exactly the same kernel panic with a Dell Studio 1749 with a i5 520m cpu.
    I even got it with a kallyway in 10.5.4
    Does someone have a clue ?

    @ratvn - I'm not sure I understand what you are saying. According to the Tonymac website, this kernel has worked on my processor. Could you please be more specific as to what you think the problem may be? Do you know another kernel that may work?

    @neo1203 - It's good to see that I'm not alone. Would you mind giving your specs? Maybe we can compare hardware and see if that is part of the problem.

    Yes, I agree. There are many kernels that will work on your CPU, from 10.5.x to 10.6.x, but most of them would be limited.

    As this kernel/CPU performance is Geekbenched to compare.

    I'm not entirely sure that my problem is kernel based. When trying to install on VMware, I get a little bit further. I'm thinking that it's either a setting in BIOS (which I can't figure out) or something hardware based. I'm thinking of trying to do the USB method to see if I can get a different result.

    I agree with you that it may not be kernel related, but for installation it could cause some problem? maybe not.
    I'm very busy so can not offer much help today, but getting SL on your system shouldn't be too hard.

    I tried in VMWare Workstation 7.1 but had no luck. VMWare simply reboots the machine after saying something about the CPU entering the power-off state right after I boot into Darwin.

    Here are my specs :
    Dell Studio 1749
    4GB RAM
    Intel Core i5 520m
    Chipset Intel HM55

    The problem is that the motherboard is custom made by Dell, and the BIOS is locked. We can't modify a thing in this damn BIOS (well, one can disable virtualization and that's pretty all that can be done). Maybe that's the problem, or maybe something else, I don't know.
    I tried to boot an USB key with Chameleon 2 RC4 and had just the same problem.
    I suspect the problem has to do with ACPI but as I said, I can't access the ACPI settings in the BIOS.

    I have found that in VMWare adding this to the end of the config file helps:

    paevm = "TRUE"
    numvcpus ="1"

    Also, for some reason, changing the guestOS to "darwin10" sometimes helped. Sometimes I needed to keep it as FreeBSD to install and changed it to darwin10 after install.

    Keeping on track, I do agree that the BIOS settings are terrible. On the Tonymac forum, there are a lot of people with i3 processors on Dell Inspirons. So I'm thinking the BIOS options that we have are good enough to get it to work. We may just need to find which option is throwing it off. I'm thinking of playing with the BIOS some more and some of the hardware. I will definitely post here if I get anywhere. I also plan on making a Studio 1749 install guide if I ever get it working. Until then, I hope someone has a solution.
    Specs:
    Dell Studio 1749
    Intel i3-330M
    Intel HM55 Chipset
    Intel HD Graphics
    6 gigs RAM
    Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200

    Thanks for the VMWare tips, but I still got the same problem... Maybe it is my VMWare version. If I have the time this week-end I will try with another one.
    As to play with the diverse BIOS settings available, I already tried a lot of settings, with no luck
