Black screen, no boot after install

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have an HP Pavillion 8100y computer that I am trying to install OS X using the Kalway 10.5.1. HP's website says I have a ASUS IPIBL-LA motherboard with a Northbridge: Intel G33 and Southbridge: ICH9R. I thought mines would be compatible but last night I tried to install Kalway 10.5.1 using MBR. After the installation was complete, I restarted but my PC would just stay on a black screen and not boot. Tried reinstalling using GUID but it stopped at about 80%.


After hours of reading I know that I am still really noob at this so I really need help. Is it a compatibility issue or did I screw something up? Do i have to change anything in the BIOS?


Any help would be appreciated, thanks
