I have gotten into the installer but I can not format my hard drive through disk utitlties. I saw that you had to enable AHCI in bios, and found out that option isn't in the Bios for my system. I then followed http://www.sevenforu...ws-7-vista.html to enable AHCI, and everything seemed to work but my hard drive still doesn't show up. Before that I also tried reinstalling Windows 7 and downgrading/upgrading my bios.
I found that IOTAfamily.kext file which supposedly fixed the problem of it not getting picked up by Disk Utilities. I installed using Kext Wizard, but to be honest I am not sure if I did that right. I chose the System/Library/Extensions option when installing the kext.
My original problem was that I would get the Apple Logo and then a white screen and beach ball forever. I have now been booting into the installer with the -x chameleon command. Could that be causing the problem?
This is causing a lot of headache and I really would like some help. Thank you!
Here are my specs, just in case:
Intel Core 2 Duo running at 1.8ghz
