Ok I got it installed. I had to install with the -x and -v command

once that was installed I had to do the few commands to bypass the welcome video


I had to install with an external usb keyboard and mouse

They both work for a few minutes then the whole system locks up


How can I get around using the keyboard and mouse


I also downloaded a supposedly kext ps2 file to fix the problem. How do I get that installed and working?


Also, booting is EXTREMELY SLOW!! takes like 10 mins to boot. Is this due to hardware?


thanks for the assistance
