    try booting up with -v even though its only verbose mode somehow mine boots up now when before it didnt

    although i used iatkos and never have used kalyway

    in the end i scrapped it and bought a mac (not enough drivers)

    Hmm..
    I'll wait for a response from the maker of the How To I've been following first

    Then I'll try iAtkos.

    Oh I didn't say what boot options I used in post 1.

    I'll add them now:

    I pressed F8 and tried:

    Code:
    -v -x platform=x86PC
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    EDIT: I also typed -s

    But nothing happened...

    I believe that when something like that happens it has to do with your dvd drive..being master or slave or on an unsupported sata controller. could be wrong though. ;D
