New to mac installing on Dual Boot

Hello All,


I have a Asus A8N-VM CSM MoBo with an AMD 3200+, on-board Video (nforce?).

I was able to install OS X Lepeard 10.5.2 using one of the guides here from Devil.

I had to upgrade my bios to 1007 and the install went fine.

When I bootup, I get the darwin loader, and have the choice to load either XP (partition 1) or OS X (partition 2).

Selecting Partition2 loads and bring a page with the Apple logo and a spinning circle bellow it.

It stays there indefenitly.


Since im not in front of my home PC now, actualy at work, I wanted to know what I could do when I get home?


I read somewhere that in that screen if I press F8 continously, I will get to the boot: prompt and maybe able to do something from there, but don't know what.


Is this a common issue? If so, what could I start by doing? Re-install and no select anything in the customize screen?


Thanks for any help you can provide.

it got stuck at IGPU section...

I guess this is related to my intergrated Grphics processor which is NVIDIA GeForce 6150 + nForce 430


Is there specific options i should select in the customize screen for this?


I'm actualy re-installing now and did not select any video drivers...
