    Default Tried laods of distro's! None of them work.. Please help!

    Hi there,

    I am a bit of a newbie to the hackint0sh community so I apologize beforehand.

    I have downloaded and burnt many distro's (Kalyway 10.5.2, iAtkos v4a, XxX 10.5.2, iPc 10.5.6).

    iAtkos and XxX don't work full stop. But I'm having trouble with the other two, I'm determined to get one of them working!
    I can install Kalyway successfully on my external hard drive (because it doesn't pick up my internal hd and I still haven't solved this prob, I have been told to set the int to master but Im not to sure how to do this). But when I try to boot it up,the apple logo and the grey circle spinning around and around and doesn't boot. I have been told its something to do with my graphics card and the same guy told me to download and install iPc 10.5.6 as it has better driver compatibility.

    When I try to install iPC (Version 10.5.6), I get the dreaded 'still waiting for root device' at the begging of the boot. I was informed to change my S-ATA to AHCI in BIOS. I have been into BIOS and there is no such option! I have read that the 10.5.6 Final ISO can get rid of this prob. Shall I download and try the final ISO or is there a way to fix this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, im so close!
    Thank you very much...
