Default Help! "You need to restart" grey screen - 04-30-2009, 07:15 PM

Well, i'm still trying to get my osx install to work. I'm using the method found here:

I bought a 16gb flash drive now just to do this install. However as soon as I type "81" and attempt to boot, I get the message that "you need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button for several seconds or press the restart button."

Any idea what could be wrong? I've searched around for this problem, but didn't seem to find anything useful.

Considering those instructions are copied from this site, you might want to instead follow the instructions in the OS X subforum here, THEN ask for troubleshooting help when something breaks.

Make sure you are using the correct bootloader disc. I had the same issue, turned out I had the wrong disc - the one for the newer version of OSX.
