    Default Hackintosh Install screw up hardware?

    Hey guys,

    i've tried to install OSX onto my custom built hackintosh, and after failed installation, the PC doesn't seem to reboot anymore.

    Basically, nothing works, the DVD drive opens, but there's no boot screen, the keyboard (PS2) and mouse (USB), as well as screen don't 'work' anymore (as in no response or image shown).

    I am most worried about the fact that there is no boot screen, and I was wondering if anyone had a simliar problem? I am worried that maybe the OSX installation 'fried' some hardware? Is that even possible?


    I tried to install OSX10.5.5 on the following spec machine:
    intel DC 2GHz, MDB Intel DG35EC motherbboard with 2gb ddr (800mhz) ram, standard 160gb sata hd and sony dvd writer, 512 geforce GE8400gs.

    What distro did you use? Kalyway? Or which?
