So I followed a couple different tutorials that basically explain the same way of booting the Mac OS X Snow Leopard Installer off of a seperate boot disc. I used "HPM311DP_1109GA.iso" if you google search it the first result is it. The two photos below show it succeeding in booting then failing. It says on the bottom "EBIOS read error: Device timeout Block 0x1bcee0: Sectors 0"

Ok so I installed OSX with iDeneb, which is not snow leopard but its better than no osx at all, and it makes it easier to install snow leopard in the long run through the USB installation method. Now it wont boot into OSX after installing. Following this video here:
I tried pressing a key before it boots, then typing "-s" and it loads some stuff and its supposed to allow you to type something more in along the lines of "/sbin/fsck -fy" and basically i dont even get the chance to type that in, after typing -s it just loads the stuff then flashes a white screen and reboots everytime. Anyone else have this problem and fixed it?.
