    Default reinstalling OS X with a new DVD drive -BIG PROBLEM

    So I had OS X installed on my computer before and it was working absolutely great. I had iMovie running smoothly, internet, pretty much a great Mac on a PC. Then I got a new hard drive (IDE) and I wanted to install windows on it. My DVD drive broke so I had to use my CD drive to do that. Ok, so that took care of that. Now, I want to reinstall OS X on the other hard drive (was partitioned for Windows and OS X) and have it be dedicated only to that drive with more available space. So I got a new DVD drive (Sony with dual layer writing) and installed it. The BIOS reads it fine, everything is great. Windows gets booted with now problem. But once I put the boot DVD in my DVD-rom (iAtkos 5i and I also tried Kalyway), that's when the problems started. So at first it was giving me "Still waiting for root device". I got that figured out by typing in "rd=disk1s1". Now it tells me to restart my computer as soon as the apple screen comes on. OR, if I type in -v after "rd=disk1s1", it will give me this stuff at the end and not go any further:

    Mac os version:
    Not yet set

    Kernel version
    Darwin kernel version 9.2.0 Sun Nov 17 02:56:34 SCT 2007; made by ToH:xnu-1228.0.2~1/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_I386

    Please help me with this.


    UPDATE: I think it's my DVDRW drive that is not compatible with mac. I just ran the previously installed version of my system and it does not recognize that the drive is there. The bios and windows xp does however. I'm going to try to flash it, maybe it will help. (My DVD drive's model # is this: Sony DVD RW DRU-830A)

    I tried using Leo4All, iAtkos, and Kalyway, but every single one of them gave me the same result. Apparently I am doing something wrong or I have something wrong with my configuration. My guess is that Hackintosh can ONLY be installed on DVD drives BEFORE 2007. It worked on my friend's laptop (2004) and it worked on my other DVD drive (2006) which is broken now. The new drive that I got now seems to be pretty new (capable of dual layer DVD writting 20X). Anyway, I'm gonna see if I can use my friend's laptop DVD drive on my computer, if not, then I'll see if I can use an older DVD drive to install. Also, if anyone knows if there is a way to split the installation DVD into multiple CDs, please let me know. It seems that Hackintosh can read my old CD drive (2001).

    Looking for your responses!
