Stuck at APCI_SMC_PlatformPlugin before installation on my HP G62

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've recently decided to try out OS X (again). I could install Nireshs Mavericks with AMD Kernel on my PC without any problems.

On my Laptop I'm stuck before the installation. The last line says

"APCI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resouceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out"

It is a HP G62-435DX.

Product Number
2.40GHz VISION Technology from AMD with AMD Turion II Dual-Core Mobile Processor P540
Microprocessor Cache
2MB L2 Cache
4GB DDR3 System Memory (2 DIMM)
Memory Max
Video Graphics
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 Graphics

I was already stuck at "PCI Configuration begin" but could fix it with "npci=0x8000". Not 2000 or 3000 but 8000.

And please don't tell me it's not possible without any concrete reason. I've managed to install SnowLeo's 2,8GB distro on it a year ago. I've installed it again and "APCI_SMC_PlatformPlugin" doesn't show any time out message with SnowLeo's distro.


Edit: here's picture as recommended in the sticky.
