    Default Missing mach_kernel error at boot

    Can someone help me resolve this issue. I did the installation on an AMD 5200+ PC in VMware Workstation 7, which went fine. No problems at all. After the installation when I start the VM up I get the following.

    Loading Darwin
    Loading kernel mach_kernel
    Can't kind mach_kernel

    Failed to read boot sector from BIOS device 100h. Error=1

    The above flashes by, so I have to keep trying to boot with -v to see the above message.

    You should recheck your custom selection as it could be the problem mostly.

    Can you tell me what in particular I should check? Is there a file that I can edit and manually point it to the kernel? During install I selected GPT for the partition.

    If it went through installation successfully then mostly it should run if you do make your customization selection correctly.

    I appreciate your help. I decided to try the installation process over yet again. Here are the installation options I've chosen. Maybe you or someone with a similar configuration can spot what is wrong.

    - Number of processors: 1
    - Number of cores per processor: 1

    Memory Option
    - 1GB

    Network Connection Option
    - Use bridged networking

    Hard Disk Option
    - 40GB Virtual SCSI (Split virtual disk into 2GB files)

    Virtualization engine Option
    - Preferred mode: Automatic

    USB Controller Option
    - Enable high-speed support for USB 2.0 devices
    - Automatically connect new USB devices

    3D graphics Option
    - Accelerate 3D graphics

    Monitors Option
    - Use host setting for monitors

    OSX Installation Process Options
    -VMware Virtual HD Partition 1, MyPartition (Mac OS Extended (Journaled))
    - GUID Partition Table

    Customize Options

    Just a couple points for probable assistance.
    Hdd doesn't need to be GPT(GUID) and splitting as it is virtual anyway.
    AMD can't run vanilla kernel, so the best one is Legacy (in S3 selection, it goes by a long/funny spelling that I can't remember, 2nd choice from the top?), and you need to select that.
    Boot manager could be just regular Chameleon v2 RC4, as the other is heavily mod, but you could try both (one at a time, of course).
    See how it goes.
