well this is pretty strange I have both 10.5 and 10.6 disks and neither will load the live cd

basically i put the disk in the drive and hit yes boot from cd

it will run through a bunch of code and restart

this happens with both disks!

this is the strangest thing i have ever seen, any ideas?

You can't just boot an OS X retail disk on PC hardware.

You will need to use a boot disk until you install a boot loader to your hard drive.

Use a 10.6.3 retail disk with Nawcom's ModCD

its not retail its been prepatched


i am using the ipc version so in this video



you can see that after he types in -v a bunch of text comes up on the screen as stuff loads

it will say 'starting...' it is at that point that my computer just reboots

do i have incompatible hardware?

oh sorry

dell vostro 3300
core i5 m450
3gb ram
nvidia 310m

is that enough or are there any specific specs that could cause that problem?
