Basically I have installed mac and everything but when I try booting on chameleon it boots but the apple logo comes up which is good however it does not have a loading symbol or load anything? Just wondering if you would know how to fix this. By the way, this is the step before the apple mac video intro comes up so im nearly there!
I have had allot of problems on the way and my parents are getting pretty pissed off with me haha!
Hope someone can help!
Thanks!

The fact that you see the Apple "welcome" video is a good sign. But it appears that you dont get a Desktop - this is most likely a result of the video card or settings.

It not nice to get your parents "pissed off at you" or you maybe removed from the Will ...LOL

Suggest you find a 2nd HD disk drive SATA 2 - to do this intall on as it appears that they would like to use the computer. As we mention the Computer Please list your componets as GB has mentioned that you have; if you dont know install this utility on Windows and run a report then list the major componets that it reports on like CPU Video card etc.
