    Default SL won't install for some weird reason PLZ HELP!

    I tried installing 10.6 from a USB flash drive on my 80GB HDD.

    I rebooted with with SATA as IDE : face pound:

    I booted chameleon, selected my language in SL, went to select my install location and no HDDs came up. So I booted back up with SATA as AHCI. This time, I couldn't boot from my flash drive for a SL install. I tried RAID instead of AHCI (two of my three HDDs are in RAID0) same thing. Then, I went back to IDE for SATA, SAME THING!

    THE ERROR MESSAGE I GET IS:

    EBIOS READ ERROR:ERROR 0X01
    BLACK 0X37C7700 SECTORS 0

    I get that error four times (I guess it keep trying to boot from the flash drive) and I finally get into the Snow Leopard language select. It still reboots though...

    I've tried rearranging my SATA cables to different ports, no luck.

    I unplugged my third HDD (the one were I wanted SL to go), made a 20GB partition on my 2 HDDs in RAID0 (I was planning on installing SL to that partition), set SATA to RAID, and... I got to the Snow Leopard language selection screen! Sweet! I selected English, it started loading, and... my PC rebooted. I tried a few more times, same thing... it just restarts.

    Any Ideas? Anything I should change in my BIOS?

    Thanks.

    I couldn't find a place to put my system specs, so:

    i7 930 @ stock
    EVGA x58 SLI LE
    3GB 1600MHz 9,9,9 Tri-channel RAM
    EVGA GTX 470 overclocked
    2 x 250GB HDD in RAID0 + 80GB HDD for a potential SL install

    EDIT: I reinstalled SL on my flash drive so it doesn't restart now.

    Whenever I connect my 80GB HDD, I can't boot from my flash drive. It doesn't matter config I use, what port, whether or not my other HDDs are plugged in.

    Help?

    It's not weird.
    Your first set of problem is image incorrectly restored to USB.

    While your post provided info for understanding the problem, it's lengthy and the current issue is unclear.

    If device booting is the problem then you should recheck your BIOS.

    I did not incorrectly restore the USB.

    The problem is:

    I can't boot to my flash drive while My SATA HDD is installed.

    I'm going to try another USB install with another image.

    Anyone know what's up?
