Thank you so very much for your reply. You are correct, that sounds like a non bootable USB drive. I was actually booting via the large Hard Drive, which was wrong.
But what about the 10 min thing? As I said earlier the Mac OS X 7.23GB file takes only 10-20 mins for writing the image to my HDD. Whereas in the guide it says, it should take an hour or so.
I am using the Windows Alternate Method 1.
P.S - You must be the 'God' of hackintoshing.
Please do reply soon, I need your help.
