hey guys ok.... heres my problem, Ive booted up onto the kalyway intall disc and formatted a seagate 500gb in mac os x journaled etc format. I go the the install screen, click customize select my drivers etc. Then I install, I wait about 10 mins or so and get the message UNKNOWN ERROR with a big yellow triangle. Not sure where to go from here, would REALLY like to make this rig i bought for 1500 work... ANY SUGGESTIONS? thanks in advanceheres my specs:

ASUS P5W DH Deluxe

EVGA 768-P2-N831-AR GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775

LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA

Lite-on blu-ray player sata








***ok.. I got it to completely install, I read in one of the topics that changing the name from Mac os x to Macosx would solve it. well suprisingly it did. only problem is i have no idea how to boot it. All the files are on the hard drive, i just cant seem to get the computer to boot from it, ive used the startup menu selector on the cd, it doesnt even appear, ive used acronis also to try and boot up. not sure what to do




***btw when i boot up on windows xp, and open acronis disk director, it gives me a warning message, about a unsupported hard drive etc etc. unsupported harddrive is the drive i installed mac os x on. Everything about the drive looks like it should work, it has a MBR boot partition and everything.

I think the problem is that the drive isnt being recongnized because i have windows xp on one drive and mac on another one. Ive been searching around and someone said to modify the boot.ini


" copy the chain0 file to the C:\ drive...

edit C:\boot.ini and add a line called


C:\CHAIN0="Mac OS X"


not sure what to do here either :P ANYBODY please help
