Do you mean a Boot-132 CD....... I presume other CDs such as audio and MP3 work fine? Or do you mean a OSx86 Install DVD?

NO LUCK :)

 

I tried the Leo4ALL CD too. It starts wit HFS + loading and then starts cycling startup and shutdown The CD burnt is fine as I was able to install on other systems.

Plz comment

 

Check your BIOS settings for AHCI mode, Execute Disable (XD) mode being enabled etc.......Also be aware that needs a modded BIOS AFAIK....see here......also if your DVDRW is a PATA (IDE) device check that it is Jumper set to Master and is connected to the end connector of 80 wire IDE cable......
