    I am not a master so I can't read people's mind
    If you could post your full specs, relevant to OSX installation, and your method/setup then it would be easier for others to assist.
    People always said that a picture worth a thousand words. Your video pictures should be worth more, I know, but still need more words from you, somehow.

    Stanley and I have been talking in the other forums ... his specs are similar to mine with the exception of the processor.

    HP Envy 15-1067nr:
    Bios: HP Insyde (which means SATA is enabled to AHCI by default)
    Motherboard: Quanta 7009
    Processor: i7-720QM (stanley's is an i7-820QM)
    Chipset: Intel 5 series / 3400
    GPU: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4830
    RAM: 6GB DDR3
    Internet / Ethernet: Atheros AR8131 Gigabit
    Internet / Wireless: Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN
    Audio: "Beats" Audio (I suspect we can get this working with the newest VoodooHD kexts)

    Alright. So it is over the other forum instead? I thought he'd like to be replied for whatever he posted here.
    Are you getting SL running on yours now?

    I think talking in this forum is okay ... if we can get this to work I, at least, plan on posting a guide everywhere I can (with the proper credits to all who helped). And no, I can't get Snow Leopard to run at all. Here's what I've tried:

    Method 1) I can successfully install, but cannot boot at all, using SL Hazard 10.6.2. I've tried using various discs like iBoot (ATI, Supported, and PC EFI 10.6) and Empire EFI. I've also burned them the slowest I could, which was x10 speed on an Ubuntu Live USB.

    Method 2) I put in iBoot or Empire EFI and then try a vanilla retail DVD install (I bought a copy at Best Buy). With this, I cannot even get to the installation screen as I get the following errors: either an EBIOS read error, a hang at reads "system uptime", or a hang looking for root. The disc that's gotten me the farthest so far is the Empire EFI for X58 processors and ATI graphics (oddly enough).

    The boot commands I have tried with both methods:
    (-iboot) cpus=1 busratio=12 -v (and/or -f -x)
    (-iboot) cpus=1 busratio=12 -s rd=disk#s#

    I just reinstalled Windows 7 and am going to try to really slow burn (under x10) a few of these boot images. I was going to try to burn one of these images to a USB, but I can't manage to get that to work ... I also don't have a Mac available to use.

    Hi,
    Look like you've tried lots of different methods and none worked so far?
    What version is the Hazard? Is it the 10.6.1-10.6.2 AMD/Intel?

    What happened for #1 when rebooted? Any error message there?

    Sorry, should have been more specific ... yes, it is the 10.6.1-10.6.2 AMD/Intel. There was an error message (and it happened to both me and stanley), it would read something like:
    boot0: done
    boot1: error
    I did try to boot the installed partition with PC EFI 10.6, iBoot, and Empire EFI, but it wouldn't boot, no matter what I did (run into the exact same errors I ran into with #2). There was one guy who said he had successfully installed and booted up OS X, and he said he was using the aforementioned Hazard disc, as well as PC EFI 10.6 (I think to boot up the partition after installation). However, he has been busy and hasn't been able to give us any guidance.

    OK,
    That error is really related to how you install OSX and Chameleon.

    It looks like OSX is installed in a logical partition. Chameleon can only boot to a primary one. If incorrectly installed then it would start but can not call the bootloader.

    I would recheck to see if you actually partition your hard drive correctly.
    Windows 7 preinstalled will take 3 partitions. So you should check to make sure.
