Boot from ModCD, SL Retail DVD does not mount

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install SL on an ASUS M4A78-EM with an AMD X2 250.


I can boot from ModCD and I get the screen showing the icons of disks and the various prompts, including the 'eject, swap and press F5'. I do that with a Retail OS X SL DVD and the ModCD icon disappears leaving the other disk icons, but nothing else happens.


The SL Retail DVD mounts in Lepoard and I can start the installer but when I get to where it asks me to pick a disk to install to, it tells me "this disk cannot be used to start up your computer". I didn't expect to be able to upgrade directly from Leopard, but I was just testing that the DVD did mount and was readable.


Any suggestions? I was going to try the i.B.o.o.t Legacy and M.u.l.t.i.b.e.a.s.t method.


(Sorry for the . . . business but the forum #'ed the names without this.)





I solved this by using a different retail .dmg and burning a new DVD. SL is now installed and I have a new set of problems, but I'll start a new thread for that.
