So the other day I got a virgin copy of Lion, and was going to start researching how to upgrade from Snow Leopard, well, after a few days of not sleeping, and running around town like a mad man running errands last night I was reading a post somewhere with someone asking about upgrading, and if it would mess with their files, and the responses were that it would be fine, and it wouldn't. So a very dim light bulb sparked in my head, and I thought "self, lets try it!!!" So I did, completely forgetting that you have to trick OS X into running on PC hardware I started the upgrade, it started, did it's thing, and then wanted to reboot, so I did, and voila!! Bootmgr missing press cntl+atl+del to restart grrrrr.

So I used the "Tool that shall not be named" to boot back in, and look around, found the install for Lion, and deleted it, tried again, same thing, booted back in and reinstalled Chimera, popped the disc out, and rebooted, and it hung, ahhh, let's try again with "-v", and here is were I am now ....

So I am guessing reinstalling Chimera placed another link to mach_kernel and the machine is confused, but where are they, and which one do I delete?

I have this

Loading kernel mach_kernel

Read HFS+ file: [hd(0,2)/mach_kernel] 4096 bytes.

Read HFS+ file: [hd(0,2)/mach_kernel] 7454537 bytes.

Read HFS+ file: [hd(0,1)/Extra/DSDT.aml] 28266 bytes.

at boot. So there is nothing wrong with these two lines. The problem is elsewhere, most likely with the system itself.
