Can't get past Apple logo in install

I did a quick run through your stickies and tried a search and nothing seemed to match my issue.


My hardware:


-Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.13 GHz


-SATA 80-gig HD, SATA DVD/CD-RW Combo drive

-nVidia GeForce 7600 GT (PCI-x)


Anyway, when I boot to the install DVD, I see the gray Apple logo, and then the little spinning gray bars at the bottom, but after about 30 seconds, the screen gets slightly dimmer and a little "no smoking" style sign (just a circle with a slash through it) appears in the center of the screen, and nothing happens from there on out. I know how impossible it is to determine what could be causing so generic an error, but does anyone have any ideas?


Whoops! Nevermind. Gotta learn to use verbose mode. Looks like I need to mess with the SATA drives.
