    Default Boot stops at Loading Operating System ...

    Hello guys

    I am booting with iBoot Supported to install Snow Leopard on the HDD.

    Now there was a warning message: "/extra/dsdt.aml not found".
    I copied the dsdt for my motherboard to the extra directory on the bootloader disc.

    Now i got a new screen:

    Loading Operating System ...

    cdboot: init
    cdboot: file size: 00025B00
    cdboot: reading sectors: 0000004C
    cdboot: loading..........
    cdboot: done_
    Does anyone has seen this screen before?

    Hi there,
    How are you doing?
    You're not going to tell me that you have another problem with Bootable CD, are you?

    Haha

    Actually i have.
    I managed to install Snow Leopard on a USB zip but it wouldn't boot and the install had taken 3 hours. So they adviced me to reinstall and now i am stuck with this problem i have never seen before.

    Someday i hope Snow Leopard will have a victory on my computer and i can start helping other people out, like you (at least i am building some experience with the not so smooth installation).

    Actually that is CD boot problem, linking to wrong sectors. Here something for you.

    1. ISO format is to preserve bootable sectors, so can not just copy files to it. You need to inject the file to the ISO before burning it.
    2. USB could boot if you install Chameleon but that would need OSX to do so.
    3. Try this method to see if it could save you some trouble. Obtain a copy of iAtkos S3 v2 Snow Leopard 10.6.3 and go for the installation.
    This is the newest distro release that just came out and is very good. If it works for you then forget all those bootCD and SL hdd image.

    If this still has problems then your computer really hates Steve Jobs somehow.

    For i7 you will need some boot options, so don't forget that step.
