Hi all,

Hoping someone can help me out here. I am trying to install OSX 10.13 on my laptop. I get to the boot screen and then it hangs/crashes. I have tried verbose mode, safe mode, injection etc and I can't get to the install screen. Can some one help? I need step by step instructions (I am saved but not that much). Laptop is

Intel® HD Graphics 3000 (SNB GT2)

Use the forum Search tool to look for 'prohibitory symbol' or 'still waiting for root device'.

This is so frustrating. I have tried 7 different USB drives. Tried them all in each port of ether laptop. Used a USB2 hub to see if that made a difference. Been reading pages upon pages and I still cannot get this to boot past the attached images. I find the configurator very confusing. I have managed to extract my config.plist and attached it here as well. hoping someone can give me sone insight. Any help greatly appreciated.
