I want to install Mac 10.7 next to my Windows installation. Haven't got any luck so far, does anyone have some good resources about this? I don't have a Mac to use for formatting or so.

I just managed to boot the installer, but now it's hanging at the loading screen with a cancel icon in the center. Something like [img]http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-TLaakEnpNdY/TjFlzfsJtCI/AAAAAAAAB2s/KeVMgmGSSvM/s400/mac_os_x_boot_screen.jpg[/img] With in the center: [img]http://static.stupeflix.com/studio/images/pricing/faq/cancel.png[/img] [editline]8th March 2012[/editline] Btw Nossy, thanks for the link

Last three lines from booting with -v: [code] Loading VoodooHDA 0.2.1 (based on hdac cersion 20090401-0132) Controller: Intel (Unknown) (vendor ID: 8086, device ID: 1c20) Loading VoodooHDA 0.2.1 (based on hdac cersion 20090401-0132) [/code] [editline]8th March 2012[/editline] Specs: CPU: Intel i5 3.3GHz Quadcore, not sure which model Graphics: nVidia 5500 something IIRC RAM: 8GB, pulled out 4GB for installation Plugged in: 1 DVI monitor, keyboard, mouse, webcam w/ mic No other card or USB stuff plugged in

Are you booting with iatkos or something? Doesn't make any sense that VoodooHDA would be loading at a time like that
I just managed to get through the last problem by entering safe mode, but now it's waiting for root device. Gonna try and remove unneeded drives then [editline]8th March 2012[/editline] Didn't work
I tried installing lion using iAtkos L2 on my netbook and it didn't work. Snow leopard using iAtkos S3 worked however.
Hm, Im trying SL without iAktos, Ill search for that

Okay first of all you should REALLY look into this before starting to do it. Hard drive configuration needs to be in AHCI Your hard drives/optical drive needs to be SATA Set your USB boot device to be first in priority JEEZ

[QUOTE=Darkwater124;35063213]Already done all of that JEEZ[/QUOTE] Well then maybe you should have said so, knowledge is power and with things like this every little thing could be causing it to crash. If it's waiting for root device that means it can't find the thing that you're trying to boot off of so try different usb ports I guess?? I dunno mine booted straight so I would assume that maybe your usb stick either isn't formatted properly or something but for all I know you could be trying to boot off a dvd because you haven't told us anything.
Happened to me (root device). Add cpus=1, worked for me... theres a problem with some of the dual core s.
[QUOTE=Megolas;35064935]Happened to me (root device). Add cpus=1, worked for me... theres a problem with some of the dual core s.[/QUOTE] Ive got quadcore, but Ill give it a try, thanks.
What does it say before still waiting for root device?
Nevermind this, Ill just use Virtualbox for now and do Hackintosh later when i have more experience...
