Snow Leo Retail install - Black Screen

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I wanted to install Snow Leo on my PC - you can see my hardware in my signature.

Leo 10.5.x runs perfectly, but I cannot use my graphic card at dual monitor.

Ok - what I did:

Start ISOLinux to boot up the Snow Leo DVD

Change the ISOLinux CD to the Snow Leo DVD and press Enter

Darwin is loading

*Blackscreen*

 

While the Blackscreen, the HDDs are running fast for around 3 minutes, than they stop, I think.

I waited around 1 hour, but I got no other screen as the blackscreen.

When I boot with -v, the blackscreen comes, too...

 

Without ISOLinux I can't boot the DVD - the drive is running, but after 10 Minutes there is still no boot...

 

Does anybody knows how I can boot snow leopard?

 

Please help ^^

 

PS: Sry for my bad English, when I made some mistakes - I'm German!

You need to install it from a working system.. Dont use a boot disk like you did.. Read on the forum :(

So I must install Leo 10.5.x, than I start the Snow Leo installation from Leo?

Ok - than I will do this ^^

 

EDIT:

I don't get my iDeneb start -.- When I installed it and reboot the pc, windows starts. when I set the EFI Fat32 Partition or the hfs+ partition with Parted Magic to "boot", the computer doesn't start corectly - after 10 minutes no OS had boot - only the bios "Boot from HDD" message is there.

 

Is it realy not possible to boot snow leo on a pc??
