System Uptime in Nanoseconds

Hello everyone!

Firstly, before i'll talk about my problem.


I'm extremely noobish when talking about Hackintosh, to please be patient if i answer "really stupid" questions. Thanks!


My setup:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo (E6600)

GPU: Nvidia GTX650

Motherboard: Gigabyte G31M-S2L



So, to the problem.

Today, i bought an 8GB USB drive, just to install Hackintosh, since i wanted to try it, and because i like "working with system" or "trying to fix it" etc.. I used "Niresh12495-Lion", which should have all the "kexts" (i think it's driver imo) inside. "Burned" the ISO to the flashdrive.


Before i did that, i changed the settings in the BIOS (have the latest version)

But, i'm not sure about setting IDE to AHCI, but someone said i can use the SATA mode as "Enhanced" (that should be same, so maybe it is)


So i did it. Unplugged my Windows drive and plugged in my 500GB HDD i wanted to use just for Hackintosh.


After all these things, i started up the PC, darwin loader popped up, a screen where you can choose what partition to start. I chosen the "OS X Lion Install USB", and didnt set any special command. 

After that, alot of text showed up there, i had absolutely no idea what is "happening", after that, an screen with somekind of text shows up, but the font is different.


At the end of the "dialog", i see this: "System Uptime in Nanoseconds"


I couldn't pass thru this message.

So that's the main question, i don't know where did i made a mistake, so i accept happily every tip i get. 


(Oh, and just to point, i used "USB Image Tool" to get the ISO to the flash drive, should i use TransMac instead?)
