HP Pavilion - Hackintosh
Ok so I was going to put snow leopard on the machine, but after a weird BIOS issues that doesn't allow the computer to boot from a thumb drive, I figured I would just try and put Kalyway on it from a bootloader CD.
Everything is going fine with the install, until it freezes on the Darwin command line.
I've tried but hitting Enter to boot from disk and even f8 with -v -x -y cpus=1 and it always stops at the exact same point.
Any help much appreciated. I'm thinking it is a graphic card issue. but I could be the mother board.
Here are some of the specs.

All the info I can get is posted from the spec sheet from HP site. I've of course switched over the HDD to AHCI.
