OS X 10.6.3 No entry

Hello everyone. I'm fairly new to dual booting, and was hoping someone would be able to help.


I've installed OS X 10.6.3 On my laptop.


It's a Compaq Presario CQ62.

HP 1444 motherboard

AMD Athlon II P320 Dual core processor 2.1 GHz

It supports SSE 1, 2, 3, and 4a

3Gb ddr3 ram

Graphics are ATI Mobility Radeon 4200

The actual chipset is an AMD 785GX

Southbridge SB800, rev 40

I had a hard drive that had a working copy of OS X, however that's all I could boot into.

I put in a new 500gb Toshiba hard drive, partitioned it to 2 250gb partitions.

I used the exact same settings I use with my last hard drive, but when I try to boot into OS X

it hangs at the apple logo, with a NO sign over the logo, and the spinning gear keeps spinning.


I've looked around for a few days now, and can't find anything. Does anyone know what could be causing this?
