  1. Thanks for the advice but no, still not working. I tried plugging it in to my MacBook and rebooting with the option key and it shows up on the bootlist (it doesn't load properly but I guess this is because of the modifications maybe?). I put my BIOS back to default, not many USB options anyway, but again no difference. Tried using the latest [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] disc instead of legacy but again, no change. The USB ports work fine in Windows/Linux so no issues there. So frustrating ;/
  2. 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,
  3. Hi guys, just registered to say thank you for all your hard work! I also have an l502x and I'm going to give this installation a go tonight and will let you know how I get on. Thanks again!
