    Default Please help im at my wits end! almost giving up!

    Ok long story short I have tried 2 distros so far of snow leopard, hazzard and Ideneb, both ending up ether with same or similar results of both not working on my laptop.

    My laptop specs are core i5 m460
    6gb ram
    hd 5650
    500gb hdd

    So basically both version make it into the installation some form or another. I can install both using -v cpus=1 busratio=19. Now heres where it gets interesting. The hazzard version can never seem to finish the installation it just freezes at about 17min remaining while the Ideneb 10.5.7 finishes the installation however when I try to boot I just see a quick flash of the apple logo and my laptop restarts. I am at my wits end here. I am currently reinstalling windows after another fun filled afternoon of hackintosh failure My final step before I give up is going to be iaktos L2 which is the lion version. The reason why im tring lion is im hoping that maybe its a bit more up to date with everything. Has anyone any idea what else I could try with these other 2 versions? Ideneb seems like it wants to work maybe im missing something thats causing it to restart ? other wise ill just wait and try the lion distro.

    Got to have fast fingers.
    hold your finger over the F8 key, and when the boot loader starts, push the F8 key.
    Type -v -f cpus=1 busratio=20 arch=i386 -force64 GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=0
    And case is important. the bootloaders are case-sensitive.
    Hope this works for you.
