I recently used this Guide to install retail Snow Leopard onto my AMD machine...

Now when i try and boot from the boot cd into my mac OSX to finish the setup as per the 'after setup' sections of the guide, i get the screen in the attached picture.

I can boot into it but only in safe mode. But when in safe mode i cannot connect to internet (internal wireless), it wont recognize any DVD's i put it, and it wont let me use any flash drives.

Any ideas?????

My specs are:
AMD Phenom II X4 955
Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H
ATI RADEON HD4850
4GB DDR3 1033 RAM
2x500GB WD GREEN SATA HDD
SATA DVD DRIVE
