    Default Installing SL on Gigabyte 770TA

    Hi, i have a very annoying problem, when i try to lauch the DVD of my SL distro, Snow Leopard by hazard, after the first screen where you can make a command like -v, i see that the computer is loading kexts, but some seconds later, the screen goes out and the computer restart.

    i have tried with may may boot arguments like -legacy, -v, -f, -x, -s, cpus=2,ect... or everything at the same time. but nothing has worked.

    so that is the question : how can i make boot the DVD?

    here are my specs :

    gigabyte GA 770TA-UD3

    AMD phenom II x2 550

    Msi 5770 Hawk

    thanks

    By type, what do you mean?
    i'ts an old dvd drive which I got back, it's connected by IDE cable.
    you think it's because of that?

    It's actually better with IDE DVD.
    Assuming the BIOS is set, try this boot option:

    -x -v cpus=1 busratio=20

    I seen few ppl that ran into similar problem using retail SL disk due to having more than 4GB-Ram but I donít know if it applies to SL distro, just feel is worth mentioning and good luck.

    Thanks, Igdanda for mentioning that.
    Yes, it would applies to distro as well. Distro release is just packaging all required files together, pre-made with Boot files, OSX, patches/fixes and support files.

    @BlackerS, there are only a few distros for SL and Hazards are very good ones for AMD system. If that doesn't work then there are not much left, maybe one or two releases.
    Recheck your BIOS settings to make sure.
    Post your specs for video card, chipsets, RAM amount.

    i have no ideas to how to check my BIOS. i use This
    but his bios is not the same as me, so i have not modified a lot my BIOS (hope you understand lol).
    and my specs are :
    4Gb RAM, ATI radeon HD 5770, and AMD 770 chip

    My monitor is connected to my graphics card, but this one is not recognized by Leopard. it can be for that?

    so, here are my BIOS settings :

    Image 1
    Image 2
    Image 3
    Image 4

    if something's wrong, please tell me.

    and here is the message before the computer shutdown :
    Code:
    Loading Darwin/x86
    Loading kernel mach_kernel
    Loading HFS+ file: [mach_kernel] from 4230400
    Loading HFS+ file: [mach_kernel] from 4230400 (may it's not the right numbers, i read from a crappy photography)
    LoadDrivers: Loading from [/system/Library/Extensions.mkext]
    Loading HFS+ file:  [/system/Library/Extensions.mkext] from 4230400
    Loading HFS+ file:  [/system/Library/Extensions.mkext] from 4230400
    then shutdown.

    if it can help you

    Thanks for the pictures.
    On #3 image, change SATA to AHCI to try. Disable audio, Lan, Legacy USB.

    Try this boot options:

    -x -v cpus=1 busratio=20 maxmem=2048

    The first 2 boot options should be there, the last 3 you can mix in one at a time or altogether to see.

    The screenshot problem is system initialization and if these steps doesn't work then you may have to use other distro/method for installation.
