Default OSX 10v - 09-01-2010, 11:35 PM

I've a complete nuBee on OSX...but i've been reading up and finally bought a 10v (nickelodian edition) bios A06. I also now have a retail DVD Snow Leopard. I dont know anyone with a running MAC, but I do have the external ASUS DVD+RW, so i downloaded boot 132, started it up...
got to the boot prompt, i changed to the snowleopard DVD, hit enter, it said loading DARWIN xxx with a little rotating symbol for about 5 secs and then the symbol disappeared. DVD light wouldnt come on after that either. It just froze.
From the boot prompt, I was able to enter and see the MAC OS INSTALL highlighted. but thats all.
I'm still researching, but i'm kinda at the end of my rope right now. I do have an external 500GB hard drive, if that will help me out...

thanks for all the info

Boot123 is ancient history, it was for Leopard, not Snow Leopard.
