First of all, Im pretty new to this. I won a Lenovo Ideacentre a720 last week and it seemed a good idea to try to install mac os x. I own a macbook so creating a bootable usb stick with os x lion was simple. But it doesn't seem to boot. If I press F2 on my lenovo it recognizes the usb stick (I see the logo and everything) but when I choose boot (or any of the other options) it doesn't go further, it tries to boot but after a few seconds of a dark screen the lenovo bios icon pops up and I go back to the first menu of the USB stick.

I created the USB stick with the laptop drivers option since this all in one PC features mobile processor and the mobile graphics card. (core i7-3610qm and nvidia 630m)

What can I do to fix it?

It doesn't say a lot, I get a whole lot of files that he reads (quite fast, like its starting up) and then suddenly the Lenovo logo and back to square one.

Oh my god. My bad :silent: It's my first week with an Intel CPU, so I'm not 100% familiar with Model numbers. Etc..

It's got me really excited, and I'm learning.
