Hi Shadow_Razor,


Usually if you can get to the screen you've posted the mach_kernel has been loaded and the process of loading the kext file are happening...


So a couple of possibles for the error are:


1. The AppleSMBIOS.kext driver can not load.


Hopefully this isn't it, but if so try a different leo release or

search for other AppleSMBIOS.kext and manually replace it with the one on the HDD



2. Other kext are conflicting with each other.


If you are able to boot into the partition without the Install DVD....Start the PC and press F8 to get into the bootloader, then enter the following command to enter safe mode:




This will start the OS with minimal kext's being loaded.


Although these 2 things could be the issue, I'd recommend trying a different release of the OS it would probably be easier, since the next step for the install is for it to load the temp IMG volume for your user information.


Hope this helps a bit
