    Default Stop icon on boot above Apple Logo.

    Hi,

    Whenever I try to install Hackintosh on my PC via Chameleon RC4 using my Snow Leopard install disk I always get a stop icon above the apple logo and never get passed it. Before the stop icon appears I can hear the disc loading and reading, trying to boot up the installer but as soon as the stop icon appears it stops trying to boot.

    Here is an example of what it looks like (excuse my ms paint skills

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the reply. That was the error message I was getting last night but now I seem to be getting a different error message with a kernel panic:

    Just to note that I already have hyper threading "Enabled"

    Help would be appreciated

    Hey, thanks I managed to get passed the boot screen by enabling AHCP for the IDE drive (I think) and I was also men't to disable hyper threading which partially fixed the issue. I managed to get to the end of the install process but after it reached the end I got the message "Install Failed".

    I then restarted the machine and am now waiting for the boot up. But the problem is now I just have the spinning thing below the apple logo and it has stayed like this for ages. Any tips?

    UPDATE: And now the boot spinning thing seems to have frozen! Eeeeeeekkkkk!!!!!! So close yet so far......

    Thanks in advance.

    Why don't you do another -x -v and post the error message.
    I could guess but you may not want that.

    Here is the error message using the -v command:



    I am just running the -x test now and will upload a pic when it's done. For now hopefully this is enough info.

    Hi there,
    It is sometimes very hard to debug KP at that early stage. Seems like some volume file system corrupted or missing.
    The funny thing is we are going this far and still don't know what version of OSX you're installing to what kind of hardware.
    So, it would be at bit easier to have info on your hardware, particular your cpu, chipsets number. Your BIOS settings, and your hard drive type/partition numbers along with your DVD type.
    From that KP picture, it complains some errors with your drive so we need to know if the files are missing due to your incomplete installation process, or maybe bad burned DVD, media, corrupt downloaded files etc.
    Regards,

    I will run CPU-Z in about 30 min. For now I will give you some basic information. I am using a Zotac Ion ITX A/U motherboard with Windows 7 64 bit on one partition and Mac OS X Snow Leopard on another partition.

    Hi,
    Wow, you really got a ITX board with Ion CPU. No wonder there are some problem because those are fairly new so hardware support for OSX maybe limited.
    So one hard drive, 2 partition correct? That should be number disk0s1 and s2.
    From that KP, the one having problem is disk2s1s2. That is strange.
    Your hard drive is SATA, I suppose, and connected to the 1st SATA port. Your DVD also SATA, and at what port, you know?
    The installation failed could be because of bad media/DVD burned or corrupted files. It's a possibility.
    Well, we have to play some more then.
