    Default Dell GX270 install help

    Hello. Trying to make myself a low end Hackintosh using a Dell GX270 with 1 gig ram. Like everyone else here, I left Windows long ago. Been using Linux for a long time but I can't run the software I need with it. So I got Kalyways 10.5.2 (something like that, I can't remember the exact numbers.) I got the iso burnt to a DVD, it reads and loads it correctly. It gets to loading Darwin, and thats it... it just restarts the computer. I am willing to bet it is something I have to set in my bios, but I just can't figure out what. I have been google searching it and can not find anything. Bios version is A07. Any help would be appreciated.

    I use integrated graphics. I have seen on some forums that for my optiplex, it is best to use iAtkos instead of kalyway. I am in the process of downloading iAtkos, you should try that also. I will post back if it works for me or not. Also, anyone know if there is anything else I need to do with my hard drive prior to trying to install?
