Default Can't get to Installer -- hangs at logo - 12-09-2011, 10:53 PM


Am following Mechdrew's guide to 'Direct Install from Mac to SSD/HDD', and am stuck on step 1! I power on the Mac, connect the SSD, insert Snow Leopard and hold down "C" until the logo appears. Then, it hangs. No spinning gear, no nothing. I've done this a half dozen times, and no joy. What am I doing wrong?

FYI: I am using an iMac with Intel Core i7
Retail copy of SL
