    Default Can't get SL to install off the USB stick (newbie!)

    Hi. On the recommendation of a friend on the other coast, I went ahead and followed the "recipe" provided in the Lifehacker write-up:

    How to Build a Hackintosh with Snow Leopard, Start to Finish - Hackintosh - Lifehacker

    I purchased all the hardware recommended in the piece, and ran the EP45UD3P Snow Leopard.pkg file on the USB drive. I think I have the BIOS set properly (including booting first from the USB drive). But when the machine fires up, nothing happens. The USB drive lights up, but the monitor is empty....nothing happening.

    I'm a complete and total newbie here, just trying to have a little fun and replace my four year old iMac with some decent, reasonably priced hardware.

    Anyone have any thoughts on what I might try? Thanks!

    Default Fixed!

    Don't laugh! Turns out that for some reason the "no hacking" approach wasn't loading boot files onto my USB drive. When I figured that out, it was pretty easy to fix (even for me) and I was able to get SL installed. Still some fine tuning, but seems like I'm mostly in the clear.

    Just thought I'd post the update...
