Hazard AMD Reboot on Install Issue
So first of all, I've been using hackintosh on my system for about 6 months now, and I love it! However, after I upgraded my cpu from an old athlon x2 4400+ to a phenom ii x3 740 it would sporadically KP (after a few hours of use), the audio would stop working, etc. Plus I wanted to update my OSX install from 10.6.2 to 10.6.5; so I decided to start with a fresh install.
Here's what happense when I try:
Basically, if I just click enter when the boot options comes up, it'll just sit stationary forever with a blinking text thing.
If I try -v, it will list a few things and reboot.
If I try cpus=1, it will do the same thing.
Thanks in advance,
Oh, and here's the link to my original install thread: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f213/188406.htm

Burning a new install disc did not fix the problem. Is this a mobo configuration problem? Should I format my HDD?
I have the same problem with mine. It will find the boot disk and then it will try to boot and then restart. Apparently this is a common problem but I can't figure out how to do any of the fixes that people propose in other forums. Here are the specs on my machine:
MoBO: BIOSTAR MCP6P3 AM3 NVIDIA GeForce 6150 / nForce 430 Micro ATX AMD
Processor: AMD Phenom II X2 (3.0GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Processor HDX545WFK2DGI
RAM: 4gb DDR3 1333
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F4 HD204UI 2TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s
I have a powerbook G4 but unfortunately it is a PowerPC (not one of the intel-based macs) so I can't use it to help me (although I did use it to format some externals with GUID partition tables to attempt to boot from them).
The closest I have come so far is with one of my externals formatted with GUID and restored with a .dmg of Snow Leopard (I have tried the retail version AND an hackintosh-specific version). I booted using iBoot and then chose that external to boot from and I got the Apple screen (gray..with an apple...tha's it). My glee quickly faded after it was stuck on that screen for 20 mins or more.
And that's the best I can do so far.
My new plans are as follows:
1. Try an install of 10.5 for AMD (Leopard as opposed to Snow Leopard). If that doesn't work, I will
2. Try an install of 10.4 (Tiger). If that doesn't work, I will
3. Attempt all of the modifications to kernals and whatnots, 1 by 1. And if that doesn't work,
4. Get an external enclosure for my hdd, take it to my friend's fancy shmancy mac and try to format and install it that way. And if that doesn't work I'll
5. Sell my mobo and processor and just get a damn intel even though I HATE intel.
I'll certainly let you know how all this works out if I can get it figured out. Keep me posted on your progress too.
