    Default Have tried several installs to no success

    Ok, I have gone in, partitioned my HDD, set up 30gb of space for OS X, and am running Windows 7 on my other half. I have downloaded 2 different versions, iAtkos v7 and Kalway 10.5.2. Both burn successfully, but when I go to boot my laptop through the DVD it says

    "system config file /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist not found"


    I thought this was only gonna happen with the iAtkos v7 so I tried the Kalway version but got the same error message.


    Can someone PLEASE help me and explain how to get around this error.


    My specs:

    Dell XPS M1330;
    Momentus 5400.6 SATA 3Gb/s 250-GB Hard Drive;
    WIRELESS DELL 1395 (802.B/G) MINI CARD F;

    Other Specs:

    Imageshack - specs5.jpg
    Imageshack - specs4.jpg
    Imageshack - specs3.jpg
    Imageshack - specs2q.jpg
    Imageshack - specs1.jpg

    BTW, I have 2 of those RAM, same power and speed.

    Just like the error said, you missing that file.you can make it with text editor and put it in that folder.if you still got the same error, put it on the root.

    Ok, hang on.

    My Partition'd Drive is set up like this:

    OS (C) - Windows 7
    OS X (X) - To be OS X

    You want me to make a folder and put a text file inside it called root.plist

    A - What goes in this text file
    B - Where does this folder go? Which Partition
    C - Which root otherwise?

    Thanks,

    Nhialor

    The issue might be your partitioning scheme. I had the "System config /com.apple.Boot.plist not found" (that means it is not finding your mac partition) error the first time I tried installing as well. I then wiped and started from scratch using Disk Utility to partition/initialize. No more problems after that.

    You see thats the problem, I can't get into OS X to use disk utility! Mine won't even boot the DVD, I get the error while trying to boot the installer from the DVD.

    May it have something to do with my DVD drive?

    sorry, i thought you already install it in your hd.

    but i guess the problem with your dvd when burning it. In windows, mostly, we can only see the boot file of the iso (around 192 kb), not the hfs+ partition.
    you should burn it in slow mode like 4x or 8x.
    Use the software that can show you the hfs+ image content.

    that error come up when the rest of the files not loaded/read, only the boot sector..so i suggest make a new burning ..
