Install error: "Unable to find driver for this Platform ACPI"

Question

hey all!

any solution on how to fix this?

everything goes smoothly until second screen when i reach the panic.

see header for error. 

its standard backtrace CPU:0 

 

can post a picture later if needed. (just let me know) ;)

 

ive tried both enabling ACPI and ACPI 2.0(and disabling)

disabled VT(enabled)

all BIOS modifications that could be suitable have been tested and proven faulty. 

 

no option of enabling HPET in bios(AmiBios 1203) for P5E WS PRO. (intel E6850 Core 2 Duo @3,0GHZ)

@ @Deepak hey!just bought myself 2 new USB flash drives and ready to go...since im running on x38 chipset would i need to install anything extra first?or first install a bootloader?or pc-efi- v8 or 9? i have a bootloader for linux installed, but i will remove that sd-card when installing Niresh...

 

 

problem solved, mavericks perfect install, runs smoother than any ever;) had a tough time finding drivers for my ethernet and wireless, but found them on my other computer and used that wonderful kext wizard...lovely! now, for the next part and questions:

i have two other HD´s i used to use with my windows in raid, can i safely add them back to the satacables and install windows on one of those?:) never mind, trial and error is the key, thanks a lot:) 

 

btw, the solution for install was: ivy -v

in case anyone else stumbles upon a similar issue... :D

@ USBIT also an alternative to Win32

your problem is caused by memory problem

just try maxmem=3096 -v or maxmem=4096 -v

tried that as well, was thinking i could try using the .iso image instead, as that seems to work smoothly when im testing it virtually. but now i cant seem to be able to fix(format or add a different boot image to the drive) the USB 

since its now a bootable drive with raw files and write protection. is there any way to fix this? tried diskutil (mac os x(ML) and windows, and changed settings in regedit etc etc etc.

 

or should i just buy another usb? :)

 

EDIT: USB problem solved. fixed the USB settings in BIOS to be used as a hard drive, then no problems with formatting the disk.

will try using the .iso instead now and get back to this thread later:-)
