OK well great, fell down at the first hurdle. Made my Snow Leopard USB stick, added the files as per the instructions, burned the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] legacy disc, booted the disc no problems BUT the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] menu simply doesn't detect the USB stick, regardless of which USB port I use or however many times I hammer the F5 button.
I followed the USB creation process to the letter, and it if I plug it in to my MacBook then it mounts as a OS X install disc, so it seems to be OK.
Bios version is A05 on L502X, considering we all (should) have identical hardware, this is a bit of a mystery. The only thing I can think of is the Snow Leopard disc I used to make the USB loader is a replacement DVD which I got from Apple since the brand new Snow Leopard disc I bought off Amazon wouldn't read in my drive. Could this have an effect?
Thanks in advance,
