    ok, I kept reinstalling, use different options one of them was my hack 1.14 and still it keeps rebooting, finally got and installation to work by upgrading to 10.6.6 with the combo update and them using pratsys 10.6.6 legacy kernel. in order to boot I have to set the pcitrootuid=1 cpus=1 -v on the bootloader screen, and I don't have full graphics, been trying to make work but not luck another problem is that SL doesn't recognize my original cpu, it says I have a intel core 2 duo instead of a xeon core 2 duo, in the hardware profile it reads that I have 1 cpu 4 cores, when I tried to install lion the system tells me that lion can only be install on a core 2 duo or xeon processor. any ideas how can I fix this problem.
