I received the power supply and the diodes in the mail.
Tried to boot up from the disk.
Still same error so I looked further and I think that I didn't burn the OS to the disk properly. I figured I could just open up the .img file, and copy the files over. But I was wrong. I have to burn them to the card. So I decided to go with the KANO burner for my MAC which has a nice copy of all the applications I think i will need as well as some games for the kids to learn on down the road.
But just in case I needed to do something different down the road I read about a different loader that may help me get the OS burned in easy.
Crossing my fingers.
