    Default HP Pavilion - Hackintosh

    Hey Everyone,

    Ok so I have an interesting issue which as least I've never seen before when doing hackintoshes. This project is a buddy, so he bought the match. It's an HP Pavilion and I'll update tonight with the exact model number and link. But the short of it is, when I'm in the BIOS I can't get it to boot from a Thumb Drive. the only options are, HDD, CD/DVD, Floppy (uninstalled) and network.

    Anyone have any work arounds? I have my thumb drive all ready with snow leopard.
    Thanks,

    Here are at least the specs of the computer. (UPDATED
