Need help with Boot-132/Snow Leopard Install

I am trying to install Snow Leopard using the Boot-132 method on this system:


Asus P5Q-Pro, Intel Q6600, 2x4096GB RAM, Radeon HD 4850


I'm loading Boot-132 from a cd and have a vanilla SL 10.6 dvd restored to a hdd.


When I hit enter to boot from the hdd with SL restored to it, it hangs at:


"Loading Darwin/x86


Loading kernel mach_kernel


Loading HFS+ file: [mach_kernel] from 4232f00.


Loading HFS+ file: [mach_kernel] from 4232f00."


If I boot with -v -x, I see the same, and then it goes to a black screen.


I should also mention that I have one monitor connected by dvi and a dvi2vga converter in the other port (as per a guide I saw online), before I did this I would get the same black screen immediately after hitting enter to boot from the SL hdd, regardless of what commands I used.


Any ideas on how I can get past this? Thanks.

Well I removed 4 gigs of ram, and the exact same thing happened, it might've been my imagination but it seemed like it hung at those two lines a little longer before going black....


Anyway, I'm going to try using this method: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1433618 instead of Boot-132 now, as it is specifically for my mobo
