System config file '/com.appleBoot.plist' not found

Can someone tell me what issue I am experiencing? I downloaded the kalyway file and have tried burning it with 2 seperate programs, when I boot the only thing I get is "System config file '/com.appleBoot.plist' not found. It blinks and if I hit F8 I can get to a boot: prompt. It will not let me do much else, anything I type just brings me back to the original error message.

 

I have a formatted hard drive and its the only one plugged in right now.

I burned at 4x (slowest mine allows) two seperate times, im going to try booting into ubuntu and redoing it since I did it from windows the first time.I searched before I posted this so ive already tried changing some of the settings and made sure my optical drive was set to master. I actually put this disc in with nothing connected but the dvd drive and I still get the same error.Also I am using a p5b asus mother board with a core 2 duo E6300 if that helps anyone think of anything. THanks.

 

Update: I hooked up an external dvd and it seems to be getting further into the install now. Just incase anyone runs into this problem I will keep this post updated till I get it installed.

With most install disks for an OS, if you do nothing, the install proceeds. With these Darwin-bootloader disks, you have to perform an action, either hitting any key or F8, to enable the installation. If you do nothing, the timeout message is 'Cannot find com.apple.Boot.plist'.

 

I do not think there is anything wrong with your disks. You just have to hit a key.

sounds like bootloader hasn't installed, are you sure you are choosing the correct bootloader to match your disk guid or mbr?

If you are then try installing bootloader manually
