Ok I got my hands on a copy of Mac OS X v10.4.9 (Uphuck) and i tried installing it on one of my intel machines. I had a little bit of trouble getting my dvd rom to check the disc correctly so i moved it down to my dvd burner drive and everything worked fine. Install went perfect with no errors on disc checking. Once installed the machine rebooted and now it gets stuck at a black screen saying:

Loading Darwin/x86
Can't find mach kernel

Any ideas on what may be wrong? I installed the intel x86 package the drivers and apps and kernel. I did not install the language packs.

Any help would greatly be appreciated!!
