Hi,
I wanted to install Snow Leo on my PC - you can see my hardware in my signature.
Leo 10.5.x runs perfectly, but I cannot use my graphic card at dual monitor.
Ok - what I did:
Start ISOLinux to boot up the Snow Leo DVD
Change the ISOLinux CD to the Snow Leo DVD and press Enter
Darwin is loading
*Blackscreen*

While the Blackscreen, the HDDs are running fast for around 3 minutes, than they stop, I think.
I waited around 1 hour, but I got no other screen as the blackscreen.
When I boot with -v, the blackscreen comes, too...

Without ISOLinux I can't boot the DVD - the drive is running, but after 10 Minutes there is still no boot...

Does anybody knows how I can boot snow leopard?

Please help ^^

PS: Sry for my bad English, when I made some mistakes - I'm German!

So I must install Leo 10.5.x, than I start the Snow Leo installation from Leo?
Ok - than I will do this ^^

EDIT:
I don't get my iDeneb start -.- When I installed it and reboot the pc, windows starts. when I set the EFI Fat32 Partition or the hfs+ partition with Parted Magic to "boot", the computer doesn't start corectly - after 10 minutes no OS had boot - only the bios "Boot from HDD" message is there.

Is it realy not possible to boot snow leo on a pc??
