Ok, so I downloaded iatkos l2 burnt it to a dvd via transmac and it installed fine I checked all the drivers etc. I needed but when I go to boot the finished install it get hung up on the apple boot logo but a circle with a cross through it pops up after a few minutes, what is wrong with my install?

specs: i7 930, EVGA x58 SLI 132-bl-e758 a1, 12GB 2000mhz XMS3, GTX 480 in SLI, 1TB WD HDD black caviar,sony sata DVD RW.

Here is a pic that shows what I am talking about

When the boot loader first comes up with os x selected (possibly timing out until it boots) press a key to stop the timeout then type -v screenshot that and post it here

I can't seem to get it to stop and let me type in -v, I'm going to make a video showing you guys how it boots etc. and maybe that will help you guys more.

Ok, I booted into -v and this is what it got hung up on.

So I figured out that my bios was set on IDE instead of ahci so I fixed that it got past the boot then it comes to a screen that says your computer needs to be restarted hold power button etc. I ran -v again and it ran through everything and it got stuck on a grey screen after listing everything. What is the problem now?

Remove one of the 480's. Boot with GraphicsEnabler=yes.

Doe your mouse work at that grey screen?

You need a USB keyboard and mouse for the setup.
Once at your desktop you can install kexts for your PS2 devices.

Post your console log.
You may need to edit your DSDT to enable sleep.
