  5. Hello members of the OSx86 Forums! This is my first post here, so I hope you guys aren't too harsh if I fail to supply enough information, or if I screw something up. I'm quite noobish when it comes to Mac OS X. So a bit of a background first: (Skip to next section if you don't want to read. I won't be offended) I have been Windows user for as long as I've owned a computer. I absolutely love Windows, and never had a legit reason to hate Mac OS X. Recently I have been thinking of trying out OS X, but I was put down by the idea of losing Windows in the process. I tried to use VirtualBox, but it turns out that my Pentium D (820) doesn't support Virtualization, so I couldn't VM it. So I basically decided to try dual booting Windows and Mac OS X. Okay now there's a bit of a background, now on to my issues. I burned a copy of iATKOS Snow Leopard v2 (iATKOS S3 v2) and installed Mac OS X based on following this tutorial: http://www.osx86.net/10-6-snow-leopard/10953-installation-iatkos-10-6-3-v2-s3-g31m-es2l-w-intel-pentium-d-4-a.html While it successfully installed, I cannot boot into OS X. When I attempt to boot without any flags, I receive a "kernal panic." I am not entirely sure what's happening here, so I tried the flags "-x" and "-v" When using "-x" which is, correct me if I'm wrong, boot in Safe Mode; It shows a message displaying "FILE SYSTEM MODIFIED" and something about a "DSMOS." When the DSMOS message is displayed, it just freezes there, not doing anything. I don't know how long to wait, as I am impatient. I am going to post this now, however I will attempt to add pictures of the errors I'm receiving. So I haven't tried this yet, but I think I will try to install using a different Kernel. Thanks for reading and please if you can help with anything, leave a comment. I will appreciate all the help and support I can get. Thanks. -Mike
