Default Install osx on 1010 freeze - 09-25-2011, 08:20 PM

Hey all,
I am trying to install osx on dell 1010 and any way i try it hangs at the grey apple "thinking wheel" screen
I have followed guide on here using usb hdd and no luck, tried to usb flash no luck
Tried booting to dvd using usb dvd drive no luck

Tried with sl osx retail dvd, tried with leopard retail dvd and then have got kalyway 10.6 and ideneb 10.5 and iatkos 10.6 s3 and everything gets to loader...sees the dvd etc then starts install goes to blank screen with apple in center....tries and tries...then wheel stops and its done...nothing further...never gets to language screen etc

I have checked the bios...downgraded it to a03, no work...reupped bios to a11 and disabled what was needed hut still get no where...seems like the iatkos gets the furthest..chameleon cones up, pick dvd, see logo thenstops...

Any suggestions or help would be grateful.

Thanks all !!
