Hello all,
I am trying to get snow leopard to install on my laptop, and I cannot even get it to boot up. I am using Nawcoms boot cd (0.3.2) and a retail cd (10.6). After the mod cd loads the kernel and say to press enter, I press enter and my computer immediately reboots. I have tried many different flags, and it always reboots. I have an Acer Aspire 4530, with an AMD Athlon X2 (QL-60), and a NVIDIA chipset. My graphics card is an NVIDIA GEForce 9100M G. Help would be really appreciated.

when you put the modcd in and it loads up, select the install disk and type rd(0,0)/extra/modbin_kernel -v

Try that, I had the reboot on every kernel except modbin_kernel.

Hmm, I tried rd(0,0)/extra/modbin without the _kernel. I'll have to try it with it.
