set the laptop to AHCI mode and booted from usb , chimera loaded when i clicked on the install disc the apple logo comes up ( attached image) and does nothing after that.

 

 

used the boot paramaters -v -x and got this error saying NO INTERVAL FOUND FOR . USING 8000000, and then says STILL WAITING FOR ROOT DEVICE !icon_crazy.gif (attached image)

try this boot flag: -f -v rd=disk0s2 UseKernelCache=No npci=0x2000

 

in rd=disk, 0 is your disk , and s2Partition, see your partition, s2 in Example

 

one doubt since i have only one harddisk should i be entering rd=disk0 ?
