    (The old topic wasn't getting updated, so I made this one)

    I used iPC Universal 10.5.6, and I can successfully reach the installation screen. I'm met with two problems, though: According to the verbose boot, none of my disks/partitions are able to be mounted. Here are some pics:

    Did you make sure your disks are supported by the OS? If they aren't go to insanely mac and find out how to make them compatible.

    I don't even know what my disk(s) ARE. Would they be the "WDC" thing seen in the first pic?

    I would go to your windows partition and look in device manager to see what they are. If you don't have a windows partition get an Ubuntu live CD and do it with that or install windows on another partition.

    EDIT: I can see that you have windows 7. If what I said to do doesn't work I would go to insanely mac for support. I have only used a hackintosh for about a week. I have a REAL mac, so I don't need a hackintosh.

    Yeah, pop in a liveCD and write down the names of the hard drives that it presents you with... Your best bet I think.

    My HD is a WDC WD5000AAKS-75A7B0 ATA Device. I don't have any other HD's.

    As my edit says I would go to insanely mac and use their forums to get help. This is for iPods, not really computers.

    I've tried InsanelyMac a bunch of times. I never get replies. A majority of topics never do.

    I seriously think you should do a backup and try installing it in One HDD (Your own HDD). One Disk, One Partition. Don't even think about Dual Booting yet until you fully understand and get down how to install OSx86 and get it working. Having those other two partitions there is just an obstacle and you could potentially accidentally wipe everything.

    You should really keep it to one thread instead of making 3 (or 4?).
