Hey all,

 

I managed to get my Asus M5A laptop to take iATKOS v1 r2, and the "install" seemed to go perfectly, but now when I try to boot the laptop, I am simply presented with a black screen and a flashing "_" in the top left corner.

 

I have NO idea what's happened here. Anyone have any ideas?

Unfortunately none of these seem to be working, as I can't manage to get past the main Darwin screen.I can get to the screen that says "Use the Up/Down keys to select the startup volume' which it then lists 'hd(0,1) OSX_Drive' (which is what I called it, it's the ONLY partition) and gives me the starndard "Press enter to start up Darwin or..." but nothing will DO anything. No matter what I type, hit, etc, it just sits there saying "boot: _" and flashing at me.
