    Hey guys,

    I need you help and advice.

    I've followed the iBoot + MultiBeast method step by step (although I couldnt change anything in the BIOS).

    Got the iBoot disc working, and I managed to get the Mac OS X disc to boot too.

    The HDD is partitioned to GUID Partition Table & Mac OS Extended (Journaled). When I try to install I get the 'Mac OS X can't be installed on this computer' message. :banghead:

    Any ideas?

    Tried booting in -x still doesn't work.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Are you using a retail version of the OSX installer? Not a grey colored one - these are specific for a particular machine.
