  1. npci=0x2000 - NADA npci=0x3000 - NADA Tried to go back to original install with install disc. System went so far then rebooted without ever showing the installer. Attached pic is KP that occurred before something happened that allowed 10.6.3 load properly. Still need to fix boot(0) error but can't do that if the bloody fool macOS won't even load. Maybe I'll try again Saturday. If no success, I'll put my machine out on ebay and just buy an older mac. (http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c01390590 - 8GB RAM; NEW 500GB WD HDD, Dell 15" monitor; EVGA Geforce8400 PCIe) HP Pavilion a6400f Desktop PC Product Specifications.docx
  2. I got 10.6.3 up and running on my first hackintosh. The first time I tried to install 10.6.8 I got a message I needed 10.6.7 installed. I found all of the Snow Leopard updates thru wikipedia which had links back to Apple for 10..4 thru 10.6.8 v1.1. I installed 10.6.4 and it ran swimmingly. As I was getting ready to fix the boot0 error a message pooped up saying the 10.6.8 upgrade was available. I started the install process and it apparently it was successful. Now the kicker. When I boot now it gets to the Apple logo and hangs. I've tried using and not using PCIRootUID=1 and going into safe mode. What's keeping it from starting?
  3. I tried again by wiping the hdd and unplugging the LAN cable. The box rebooted and was hung at the boor screen again. I'm starting to think my unit has been infected by redmonditis.
  4. boot0 error is supposedly because the WD drive uses 4K sectors instead of 512K. Now, when I try to install it gets about 41% and then reboots and hangs.
  5. Right. I got Snow Leopard installed onto my HP Pavilion A6400f (http://support.hp.co...ument/c01390590) and used finder(?) to upgrade to the latest version. When the install got to the end it asked to reboot, which I did. After 40 minutes of the screen sitting at the purple haze background I did a hard reboot. Nothing. The screen displays these lines: boot0: GPT boot0: test boot0: test boot0: GPT boot0: test boot0: test boot0: error I can return to the unit boot screen using the Windows salute (3 fingers, one each on CTRL, ALT, & DEL). When I get the unit to start, I get the Apple WSOD - white screen of death - which just shows the Apple logo. I'm loading from a WD Blue Mainstream 500GB 7200RPM SATA III 6Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - WDBH2D5000ENCNRSN Did I fum-dum something?
  6. The reason I chose that old cat is because it came around the same tyme as my CPU. mobo, etc. I figured they'd play together nicely. This is a fresh install to a barren hard drive. Win7 is installed on another HDD completely.
  7. Update...I removed the TPLink wireless card think it may be the cause. Nope. After four hours it was still hanging at the same point as before.
  8. Got it to work. I also needed to swap cables between the DVD dram and the HDD because they were reversed. Snow Leopard (retail) wants the player to be drive 0 (first drive) or you get a hung system continually saying "Waiting for root drive". Now, Snow Leopard (retail) hangs after saying a later version of a kext is already installed. Please refer to my other post "Snow Leopard hangs on install" - http://www.osx86.net/forums/topic/24230-snow-leopard-retail-hangs-during-install/
  9. I used NAWCOM BootCD with boot: mach_kernel to get my retail Snow Leopard disc to begin its thing. It got as far as "Refusing new kext com.apple.lokit.IOUSBFamily, v3.9.6: already have loaded v6.6.6.". Then it hung at "com_lnx2mac_RealtekRTL81xx: Ethernet addres 00:1f:c6:04:74:b0". I've attached a photo of what was on the screen. Did I forget something? HP Pavilion A6400f Intel E2200 CPU 8 GB RAM ASUS IPIBL-LB mobo
  10. I used NAWCOM BootCD & followed the instruction. I get a light grey screen that gives more information about my computer than I though possible. When I hit "Q" to continue, the computer restarts. What might be missing?
  11. Bump (Doesn't anyone read these messages?)
  12. I have an ASUS IPIBL-LB based HP Pavilion with a bIare 250 GB HDD. I have yet to find a decent guide I've yet to find a plain English guide on how to install OSX 10.7 Lion on it. I have the .dmg file all ready to go but every "guide" I seen so far implies I need a dozen other things, most of which are no longer available or imply I need to have Snow Leopard already installed. And hitting the forums at {censored} and insanely mac is akin to talking in a barrel. Anyone here able to help? HP Pavilion a6400f Desktop PC Product Specifications.pdf
