Snow Leo Retail install - Black Screen

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


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



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!

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

Ok - than I will do this ^^



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??
