Suggest you post in Laptop Forum for laptop installation problems - this is Desktop support forum.

olliecull - I had this problem when I misread the instructions. At step 5 (At boot prompt, eject iBoot), I selected iBoot and ran it, rather than ejecting the disk. Try this again, but eject the disk at this point and insert your Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD (as per step 6), rather than running iBoot.

IMG_0669.jpg

I've done everything as listetet in the SL Guide, i've downloded the Update Helper for Sandy Bridge and the i run it!
After the recommended reboot i hang in this loop!

Hardware:

Intel i5 3330
ASRock h61mv

I know ASRock isnt the best Solution, but i only need it to download Maverick for my new Haswell System.

hey guys,

I'm having problems with installation. As soon as the install screen appears, mouse isn't working, nor the keyboard works properly. I can choose between languages with up and down arrows, but as soon as I hit enter, the next step appears, and keyboard stops responding completely.

Any idea what should I try? USB Legacy is enabled, AHCI, S3 as well...Asus P5K Pro mobo with intel core2duo e4500.
Using iBoot and Snow Leopard disc.
