Default Kernel Panic - Unable to find driver for this platform: ACPI - 09-23-2009, 02:58 PM

Background: retail 10.5.6 updated to 10.5.7, used old Windows-Only method as I had no other Mac to play with.

After updating to NetbookInstaller from DellEFI I broke something with my OSX installation. On reboot, I got the following kernel panic. I tried getting in via safe mode, no luck. I deleted the Extra folder via the USB boot to the Install disk, no luck.

Any other ways to recover this without a reinstall?

Hrm.... So I gave up and reinstalled OSX with success, updated to 10.5.7, ran NetbookInstaller from the get go, instead of DellEFI ->NBI. After the .7 update I ran NBI again, generated the dsdt.aml file and...

It's a corrupt dsdt.aml delete that file from Extra and it should boot.

I tried blowing away the dsdt.aml, but I still got the same kernel panic. I also removed the /Extra folder with no luck.

After more testing, it is always after the 10.5.7 upgrade and then NetBookMaker. If I keep it 10.5.6 with NBI it runs ok, other than no sleep. If I run 10.5.7 with DellEFI it runs fine minus sound.

Just confirmed with my latest install of a clean OSX with NBI that blowing away the dsdt.aml file does not help.

If there is a dsdt.aml on the root of your hdd, delete that one as well and then try regenerating with netbook installer.

In the terminal:
sudo rm -f /dsdt.aml

I'd love to try that, but I am afraid of another very, very long restore process

As it stands I have 10.5.6 via NBI working Ok. Sound quality is awful and sleep completely blows up the machine.

Ugh. I'm dealing with the same exact problem. In order to try and delete my adst.aml file, I transferred my install DVD to my USB stick, ran NetBootLoader, and opened terminal within the Installation.

Running the command: rm -f /Extras/asdt.aml gave me a read-only error, and running the command: sudo rm -f /Extras/adst.aml gave me a command not found (sudo) error.

What am I doing wrong?

Resolved, but still unsure:

I was able to run the NetBookInstaller inside of the MacOSX Installation (patched with NetBookMaker, obviously).

It was version 0.81. I ran it to overwrite the adst.aml file (I think that was the important setting to change) and it worked on the next boot.

I tried running 0.82 NBI and 0.83 NBI RC3 and everytime I got very sad mac computer. Everytime I was able to fix it by running 0.81 again.

If someone wants me to run tests on my computer or submit a bug to trac, I will be happy to do so. I can't figure out why I can't get 0.83 RC3 or 0.82 NBIs to work.
