  1. I think this thread can be expanded to more than just Virtual box installs for the same thing happens when trying to install to my hard drive. There is currently no option for EFI in my Bios boot menu. Are there any other flags that can be used? Again, here is my system specs so you don't have to scroll up: System specs: Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A02Processor: AMD Turionâ„¢ X2 Dual-Core Mobile RM-75 (2 CPUs), ~2.2GHzMemory: 4096MB RAMHDD:File System: NTFS Model: WDC WD3200BEVT-00A23T0 ATA Device I am curious as to what arguments should be used, What has been used with no success: amd -v, kernel=amd -v, kernel=amd -v -x. My current busratio is 11 and that has been used in the past when installing older distros.
  2. @, I have sent you a PM
  3. @ thank you for your time and input, it is much appreciated. All instructions have been followed with no result. I even went to the extent of upgrading the BIOS to the most recent version, for I was unable to find any EFI entries or anything remotely close to it. I surmise that this distribution is incompatible with my laptop. Too many hours have been spent on this issue, moving on. Again, thank you for your input.
  4. @ - Thank you for your insight, I have completely removed Virtual Box 4.3 and re-installed 4.2. Still no luck, same kernel panic as above. I have attempted using a wide variety of Virtual Box settings with no real results. Note, that Mac OSX 10.5 (Not sure if Niresh or competitor) is able to run in Virtual Box however no newer versions are able to successfully install. @deadmau5 - Ah, yes I am familiar with that method. With the pre-packaged Vmware image, I get a notification that my "CPU has been disabled" and Mac OSX locks up. Edit: I got curious and removed virtualbox out of the equation and restored .dmg to usb using Transmac. Booted to usb, and was prompted by the familiar boot loader screen, typed in my flags and was overwhelmingly met with Kernel Panic: "tsc_init: EFI not supported!". Any thoughts or alternative boot flag options?
  5. Thank you for your input, helpful but not in my case. The furthest I get is a "type 14=page fault": Here is a screen-shot of the kernel panic: Any other helpful boot options or arguments that can be used for an AMD Turion X2 processor laptop running 10.8.5 in Virtual Box? Or just for AMD Athlon Turion X2 processors in general?
  6. First off, I would like to thank all of the hard work and dedication that goes into these distros. Secondly, I have a scenario that I seem to not be able to work through. I would like to reach out to the community for some input. Goal: Install 10.8.5 on a VHD in Virtualbox on a laptop with an Amd Turion processor. System specs: Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A02Processor: AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core Mobile RM-75 (2 CPUs), ~2.2GHzMemory: 4096MB RAMHDD:File System: NTFS Model: WDC WD3200BEVT-00A23T0 ATA Device I am curious as to what arguments should be used, What has been used with no success: amd -v, kernel=amd -v, kernel=amd -v -x. What happens that stops me: Completely black screen with no output, even when using -v tsc_init: EFI not supported!...... (even though EFI has been disabled in Vbox) numerous other errors that I cannot recollect The same results are achieved using VMware on this laptop as well. Any input would be appreciated, thank you for your time. Note: I have tried multiple Niresh Distros, all usually resulting in some sort of Kernel Panic or stop error using Virtualbox or VMware.
