I installed OS X using Nawcom ModCD and the retail Snow Leopard disk

Once I install those, I use The OSX 10.6.7 Combo Update to get the system to 10.6.7

After that, I can't seem to get the Bootloaders or the GFX card to work properly.

I've tried using ##### to install ##### and Chameleon. The ##### worked, and Chameleon installed, but it does not give me options boot. Just had a list that states

boot0: test
boot0: GPT
boot0: test
boot0: test
boot0: GPT
boot0: test
boot0: test
boot0: error

I also tried to use tonymac's nvidia 2.1.0 Graphics installer, but it doesn't work. The installer completes, but when I restart the system, it still looks like there are no GFX kext loaded.

Any solutions?

I have L501X as well. The error means that you had a GPT disk. Boot into Windows and use a partition manager to convert the GPT disk back into MBR disk.
