    Default Kernel panic on boot: pre-install.

    I followed This guide To set up a USB flash drive snow leopard install disk. I get the apple logo and the spinning gray loading icon and a darker shade of gray wraps over the screen and a dialog box says "you need to restart your computer".

    The only part of the guide that I have not followed verbatim is the adjustments made in the BIOS. I know that these are important but I have a very different bios- mine says "Phoenix - AwardBIOS CMOS Setup Utility" at the top. As a result, I don't know where to change what.

    I have:
    XFX 680i mobo
    4gb 800mhz ram
    Intel q9550
    XFX NVIDIA GTX 260

    And a kingston 8GB flash drive.. not any kind of funky cruzer or whatever else.

    Can anyone offer some advice? I'm pretty sure my problem is not changing the BIOS settings that I need to change. I have googled and browsed this forum for the correct steps to take but it seems no one has written the BIOS setup guide for my BIOS, and I don't understand what changes need to be made and why in order to figure it out on my own.

    86 views and none of you know anything about the required bios settings?

    Admittedly, some of those were mine checking for replies

    Default Same problem

    I'm having the same problem as well. I put together a similar system using the Lifehacker snow leopard instructions and parts. I think my problem is due to a system crash during a re-install.
    It seems like the most important piece of the puzzle is the motherboard. If you didn't go with the GB EP45 board i don't think you can expect the same smooth results. I actually had mine running the first time around but had stability issues, most likely due to incorrect memory settings in the bios.
    I'd check http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/in...#10.6.0_Guides
    to see if anyone has done anything similar with your mobo.
