    Question Acer Aspire 5745 pg - installation.. help plz??

    ok so my problem is...
    i've got an acer aspire 5745pg
    processor: i5 2.40 ghz
    4 gb ram
    Win 7 Ultimate x64


    tried to install MacOS X leopard onto it, but i dont know what i did wrong.
    partitioned hard drive correctly
    formatted the MacOSX partition to FAT32 and made the share folder.
    i think i might have forgotten to desellect the drivers in the OSX install...

    it loaded successfully, but gave me an error message [ do not recall what it said exactly] and turned off for a restart.

    so i restarted it.

    and it has NOT gotten past the first boot ACER logo screen, since.
    the options i'm given: f2 to go to setup which doesnt work, just like with any other key or key combo, just gives me the beeping sound and stays frozen.

    tried to flash my BIOS, combo fn+esc, but i dont know if it worked. it says the BIOS is 1.09 [which i believe is the most current one]

    so basically the two options i've got right now is: check BIOS fn+esc, power on, power off.

    i listened and HDD spins fine.

    absolutely out of any other ideas of what could be wrong. but it is Hackintosh-related.

    most definitely.

    please help




    PS: i believe i was using the iATKOS s3 v2?

    although i put in a prepached copy of OSX Leopard that i REALLY had in my drive..

    Smile Solution for freezed acer logo screen

    Hey dude its my first post ever . But i was deeply interested in helping u due to the reason that i myself have beared the frustration due to this problem on my new acer aspire 5745 . So here's the solution . Trust me the solution is fully working . I have learnt it from acer executive . To solve the problem , u have to open the backside of ur acer lapi ( carefully it has quite non-technical way of opening ) . Take out ur hard disk on the left bottom corner on backside by pressing the little steel extensions and pulling it out . Now start your computer , u will be able to enter into bios setup , now change ahci mode to ide mode . Reinsert ur hard disk . Install windows ( mind only windows not linux or mac os ) . Download bios update from acer website namely artheros bt or first one in the list . Run the exe file of windows folder . Ur pc will restart and bios will automatically be reset into ahci mode . Ur problem is solved but u have to install os once again . Tell me if ur problem is solved .
