My Specs:MSI K8n Neo Platinum mainboardAMD Athlon 64 XP 3000+ (Socket 754)1gb RamToshiba Lightscribe DVD DrviveNetgear WPN311 WirelessIntel Pro set 10/100+ Ethernet adaptorATI Radeon X700 AGP Graphics80gb Hard DriveHi I'm having trouble booting into installer. After darwin with -v and -x I see a lot of flashing text, then the screen resolution changes and it keeps going for a little bit. Then it freezes a little bit past some firewire error (Will post in a minute).


Update: If I don't use -x than I can get to the White apple screen but the loading sign just keeps spinning and spinning. Its been 15 minutes now.

Update to the update: About 40 seconds into the spinning, the hard drive makes the same noise it does when the computer powers down and the HDD activity light goes out


Update: Tried a TOH dvd also. Same problem! Here is the error that TOH gave me:

"BSD root: disk1s3, major14, minor 4" (break)

"ERROR: FireWire unable to determine security-mode; defaulting to full-secure" (break)

"Jettisoning kernal linker." (Break)

"unknown SIGSEGV code 0" (then freeze)


I also attached a picture of the error:
