boot problem - please help quickly
« on: April 02, 2012, 04:52:35 PM »
what happened - i booted from my hard drive - it got to chameleon and 'pressed any key for more option' - selected my hard drive which is where i installed mac os x and then this came up (attached picture with apple logo in background)
expected output/action - to open mac os x
actual output/action - the attached photo
i got the iso or the dvd here ... kat.ph/iatkos-v7-dvd-10-5-7-for-intel-amd-t2718902.html
 
computer specifications:
 Manufacturer: Acer
Model: Aspire 5738zg
Processor: Intel Pentium Dual Core @2.30GHz
Graphics Card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD5470 - 512MB
RAM: 4GB DDR3

i dont know what the debug version is an haven't tried it
below are 2 pictures of what came up (same screen just different angles)
all i want is to use mac os x and if someone can suggest a different version which will work better i have limited access to the computer im using now and should have enough time to get it

any help is appreciated and thank you so much in advance

First - your attached images are stupidly and unnecessarily large. I've resized and reuploaded them.

We can't support hacked distros here. Retail installations only.

On top of that, the distro you're using is based on 10.5.7 which means the Chameleon version that's on it is several years old. We can't support that either.

Furthermore your video card is from 2010 and therefore it is not supported by the ATI drivers that ship with 10.5.7, which was released in May 2009.

There is no "retail for that", retail is retail, Apple don't sell "OS X for PCs". If they did you wouldn't be posting here because this forum wouldn't exist.

You use a Snow Leopard retail DVD or Lion installer bought from the app store and restored to USB flash drive or hard drive partition, along with the Chameleon boot loader and whatever patches you need for OS X to install and run on your PC. If you don't have access to a Mac or working Hackintosh, you can start with a distro/hacked DVD and use that as base for installing retail OS X.

Anyway all of this is off topic for this forum, we don't do general OS X-installation-on-PCs-support here.

When you get to a point during installation where you have a problem with the Chameleon boot loader we can help you. As for the rest - such as which files you need, how to do all this without access to a Mac or working Hackintosh, how to restore the Lion installer to a flash drive - you'll have to look for help on that elsewhere. InsanelyMac is a good place to look for more information.

Good luck.
