Press F8 on startup and type -v and hit enter to collect error reports. So i can see whats going on there.
Also make sure your boot order is DVD then HDD (try putting external first, if that dosnt work then try the other way round i.e. DVD, HDD, external HDD or DVD, external HDD, HDD), disable SMART in bios aswell if you can.

sorry for the late reply

I'm running an HP G60 Laptop (AMD)

I had a later version that would start the install and then die, I then downloaded

Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2]

I started getting the ebios errors instantly. after fighting for a long time I changed the dvd rom settings in vmware server from "Use ATAPI emulation" to "access the drive directly"

after that, I restarted the vm and viola, so far so good, the install is working and I'm in the GUI section of the installer now.

I hope this helps some of you!

Yes.  The problem was that the OS X drive that i used was the primary drive that had all the boot info on it.  So when i formatted the drive it got rid of it all.  Then the Vista drive was the 3rd in my sequence.  So i had to switch that to my first drive.  Even then the Vista DVD didnt recognize that i had a Vista install.  So i had to just reinstall.

Meh now that i got it done and the boot info is there.  I am gonna try and get OS X and Ubuntu installed.  Only thing is i dont have a spare drive for OS X and need to know if i can partition the 160GB to 2 80GB parts and get OS X and Ubuntu installed.

Here is another test you can do. Change from AHCI to IDE for the controller connected to your optical drive. You most likely will not get the error then. Again, this is just a test. You do NOT want to use a hard drive set to IDE instead of AHCI. If you have multiple controllers, and can set the optical drive to IDE but the hard drives to AHCI, that will work.
