I'm trying to install Snow Leopard retail 10.6.1(?) on my flash drive.

I converted the DMG to an ISO, my SATA is set on AHCPI or w.e, I have the flash drive as first boot device. When it boots, it just goes to a blank black screen with a flashing cursor, unable to do anything.

I also tried using iBoot, and the flash drive didn't show up.

I only have 4.7GB CD's, so USB is my only choice.

Anyone know why it's ding this, and can anyone help me? I'm a complete noob at this, willing to pay if everything works out.
