Help with OSX Dell D630 Installation - ACPI Issues

Recommended Posts

I'm a bit stumped at the moment. I have been trying to get OSX installed on a D630. Tried everything from Snow Leopard, Lion,  and Mountain Lion but come up with the same error on trying to boot OSX to start the installation. The error that I get is the following:

"Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI\".\n^0/Source ......."

 

Not sure how to get around this. I've seen where plenty of people have managed to get it installed but I must be missing a step somewhere along the way. Would anyone be able to help?

It seems you would be missing the AppleACPIPlatform kext. Can you check what you have in your Bootpack or /Extra folder? These are myHack installations with the correct D630 bootpacks and done according to the process detailed in EDP pages of the web site, right?

I'd say you have no existing Mac or Hack to create your OS X installer and you would be using a distro, right? There's always the virtual machine route, but it's often problematic. Why don't you follow what was just suggested to 'osxuser' in today's other thread on the same matter? He succeeded...
