Hi Curt,

More information about your system please.
Sony Vaio? Dual graphics, Pentium 4? 256mb DDR?

Just an example. Thank you :)
Think this is a graphics issue, provide some info about it :)

I can not help with this, but any other graphics except the AMD Radeon? (Integrated?)

For the next one who comes along, best of luck.

Dual graphics will not work on a notebook, focus on getting the HD 4000 working.

I can go through all the steps on how to remove the Radeon drivers etc, use Pandora's Box (Downloads section) to create your usb, it should solve the problem. Check your USB before rebooting, remove all the AMD* and ATI* kexts from /System/Library/Extensions on the USB.

The option to remove those kexts will be given during the installation, using Pandora's Box.
