    OK this one has me stumped? Installing SL on an MSI FX700 notebook. Core i5-460M, HM55 chipset, nvidia GT425, Seagate 500G HDD (NOT advanced format).

    Had to use Legacy iBoot with flags: PCIRootUID=1, GraphicsEnabler=No, arch=i386, cpus=1, busratio=19 to get to install. But after rebooting once the install finished, I can not see the "Snow Leopard" partition that I created when I installed (single partition, no dual-boot or fanciness). (Tried using Legacy and current iBoot as well)

    Am I crazy!?!?! I did a quick google but couldnt find this issue so forgive me if this is a stupid mistake/easy answer.

    QUICK EDIT - I have a few other working SL hackintoshs, would it be smarter to purchase Lion and try the Unibeast install directly on this laptop?
