We do not allow discussion of pirated copies of software in this forum. Slothtyper is also correct in noting that success using pirated copies is poor.

"Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI\".\n"@/SourceCahe/xnu/xnu-1504.3.12/iokit/Kernel/I0PlatformExper.cpp:1389


Any Suggestions?


This is what happens with every install I try, No matter what the method. IS this related to my Snow Leopard rip then?


Thanks

Hey, I'm really sorry about the delay. Time slips by so fast...:P

Anyway, I believe I forgot to mention that you need to have your BIOS set up right. But you probably knew that...
In case you didn't USB wake support should be disabled, also try disabling Bluetooth.

I completely agree its cheap, however what is the success rate with a retail copy?

Im not one to take a gamble before jumping to the other side and no disrespect but anyone can google OSX rip and look up a name of a pirated version.

I was simply asking if my method of madness would work.

Theoretically it could work, though converting a DMG to an IMG is really sketchy.
Either way, downloading a DMG usually only causes hosts issues, plus you won't be able to get the support, as a downloaded image will usually be unique.
The success rate with a retail copy will be much better than some obscure torrent.

We do not discuss installing from torrents here. Period. Buy the DVD.

Dear James,
I am really having trouble installing OS X SL on my Dell Mini 910.
I've tried the NBI USB method but not the CD method. I have no mac access but a Win 7 Ultimate PC. Every time I try to install OS X it boots up, I format/partition the SSD and start installing. A couple of minutes later it fails saying 'Could not copy necessary support files'. Something to do with 'Basesystem.pkg' on the log. Please help me! I am 12yrs old and this is beyond me. Thanks in advance.
