    Exclamation Cant even start installation (blinking cursor)

    Hello, I've tried to install both iOs 10.5.6 and iOs 10.5.7. The problem is that my laptop does NOT have a DVD/CD drive! I followed this tutorial: Make Bootable Mac OSX86 USB Stick Installer Yourself. | OSX86
    to install it from my External Hard drive, where I've made an extra partition for the installation files. In my BIOS it recognises this as a bootable device, I've selected it as the 1st option to boot from. However when I try all I get is a black screen with a blinking cursor! (Where I cant type anything) Nothing ever happens untill I reboot and it might start windows (7) instead.

    I've tried PC_EFI, Camelion and No EFI in OSx86 Tools. What could be the problem? I doubt its my hardware since literary nothing happens. It does not take a single step in the installation. Could it be faulity installation files? Both are ISO-files I've mounted as recovery as the mentioned tutorial suggests. Seems unlikely both of them aren't actually bootable..?

    My specs (not that I think it matters in this case): Egenskaper fr Asus UL30VT-QX008V

    Wait, have you flagged the OS X installation partition as active? If not then use GParted or an OS X DVD booted single user.

    EDIT: And the partition Map should be MBR. Please double check that

    It should be active, even windows says it's active. OSx86 Tools says it is MBR too

    EDIT: It's like it finds the partition and everything, tries to boot but doesn't find any program to run,... it's like they forgot to add something that automaticly loads up the installer? If they did how would I go by adding that myself? Since I have it on a usb-disk I can modify whats on it..

    I think a healthy system disk is "roughly" made of com.apple.boot.plist, boot, boot0, boothfs, Extensions.mkext (or Extensions Folder), mach_kernel, System, Extra and Library folders. Try installing Chameleon RC5 on the Flash Disk to see if it boots at all. They have a pkg installer at tonymacx86 but I'd Google "Chameleon RC5 r947 pkg" just to be sure you find it. Make sure you change installation destination to your USB disk
