Dell Inspiron 1545
I'm trying to install OSX Snow Leopard onto my Dell Inspiron 1545. I've formatted my USB drive to GUID and used the EP45-UD3P Installer to patch the USB drive. When I put it into my laptop and boot onto the USB, after a few minutes of the apple logo with the loading circly thing, a circle with a line throigh it appears on the apple logo (I can't of the technical name for it). WHat am I doing wrong? How do I do it right? If possible, I'd like to stay away from torrents.
Thanks in advance!
Your laptop hardware may be different, hence it won't work.

I decided to try with -v -x turned on so I could see what the errors are. It says "MAC Framework successfully initialized using ........
AppleYukon2: RxRingSize <=1024 *some other numbers*
Still waiting for root device"
The waiting for root part comes up again every few miutes. Any ideas on the problem?
I tried the SL Boot132 method, but I keep getting the error "Can't find mach_kernel." When I tried using -v -x
Option in BIOS for SATA to AHCI?
I have almost the same problem.
I use the boot-132 disk but everytime i try to boot it, it says:
''Still waiting for root device'' after ''AppleYukon2: RxRingSize <= 1024 ....''
I've cleaned my harddisk but it was still not working..
Please help :(
what i found that worked everytime was tonymacx86's iBoot ISO. that's what i'm using, i dont know if im going to use the Chameleon (RC5) from that ISO. I may use the one from the Boot132 disc, which is RC3.
here's the link to download iBoot:
