Unhappy Hear the Intro Music, Blank Screen - 04-25-2010, 03:49 AM

I'm pulling out my hair, I had the Mini 9 with Snow Leopard once but wiped it because I needed to use Windows XP on it for a quick project. Now when I re-install with NBI 0.8.3 patch (can't run 0.8.4 on existing Leopard OSX86 laptop) via USB, upon bootup I only get blank gray screen but I hear the audio introduction. What am I missing here? Mini 9 with 2GB RAM, 16GB SSD, and BIOS A6. Thanks!

Edit: I am installing via 80GB USB drive, with GPT on both the external HDD and internal SSD. Like I said, I did this before once without problems, but this time I'm getting white/blank screen but I can hear the introduction music after installation and reboot...

Since I got no reply or any help, moved on to Ubuntu 9.10 where it actually works...

I resolved the issue by simply re-running the netbookinstaller then boot up with no cache.

Can anyone find a solution?

I tried to re-run the NetbookInstaller...Tried safe boot (-x) tried -f, tried to verify disk... nothing!

I run the -v verbal mode and i found a kernel panic :
