    Default Toshiba wont boot install disc

    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to install Mac Os X onto my Toshiba A500/02j, but i cant seem to be able to boot the install disc.

    I have tried to use:
    iDeneb 1.5.1
    Snow_Leopard_10.6.1-10.6.2_SSE2_SSE3_Intel_AMD_by_Hazard

    I've also tried to use iBoot and then load the distro disc, but still to no avail.

    Here's my issue:
    I've made a partition for the installation, and sorted out all preliminary steps.
    When i change my boot order to the DVD drive, it recognises the distro disc, and asks me for the method of booting. I've tried booting it as is, tried it with "-v", "-s", "cpus=1", etc, and any other combination.
    As soon as the disc boots, i briefly see the grey screen with the white apple logo. Shortly thereafter the computer reboots, and goes back to the boot menu.

    If you would like some computer hardware specs:

    Toshiba A500-02j
    Computer model: PSAR9A-02J001

    GFX Card: nVidia geForce GT 330m
    Processor: Intel i5 430 2.27ghz
    RAM: 4gb

    Not sure what the motherboard is.

    Thanks for reading!

    hi,
    have you try adding "-x32" or/and "busratio=17"(or other busratio, maybe). But first ,set your bios setting right, like ACPI enable.
    Check if SATA set to AHCI in bios..

    tried it with -x32 and restarts the laptop a second later.

    busratio=17 allows it to go on a little further, white screen, apple logo, and the little spinning circle underneath it. It does that for about 30 seconds, then a circle with a strikethrough apears.

    Default Same laptop model.

    Hey there!

    I have the same laptop model as you and looking to convert it into a mac as well. Just wondering how you went with yours and if you had any problems with drivers?
