I think I have a bit of a problem here but first, I’ll give a short introduction of myself. I’m 15 years old and I live in the Netherlands, so it could be that I cannot understand everything you say. Anyway, I like working with Mac OS X so I decided to look at the possibilities of a Hackintosh PC. After I did some research and checked my computer I began downloading iDeneb 1.3 (Mac OS X 10.5.5) and I burned the .iso onto a DVD, following
tutorial. Then, I’ve created a partition of 30 GB (not 15 GB, as said in the tutorial).
I did everything as the tutorial said; before the installation, I went in Disk Utilities and erased / made the partition on which Mac OS X should be installed, and then I selected the items I thought were necessary. The installation itself lasted about 5 minutes and after that, I had to reboot the computer in order to complete the installation. So I got the bootscreen but after a minute, some ‘acces denied’ icon showed up. I don’t know what it’s called in English, but it’s like ø.
I have read about this icon showing up earlier and I thought it was about your hardware not being compatible with the system,so I ran the entire installation again (including erasing / creating a partition) but this time, I selected every driver or language or whatever you can select. This time the installation lasted a little longer, about 15 to 20 minutes. Again, I rebooted but still the icon appeared.
I decided to go back into Windows to download another version of iDeneb or maybe even another Hackintosh version, but I wasn’t able to find the Windows installation!
After a while I’ve found it but when I wanted to boot it, it said “BOOTMGR missing – press [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Del] to reboot”. I inserted the Windows 7 installationdisk but when I tried to repair the installation, the disk wasn’t able to find any installed Windows-OS.
Afterwards I’ve done a clean install of Windows, but I still don’t know what’s gone wrong and I still want to set up a dualboot with Windows 7 / Hackintosh..
