Install Hung on Grey Screen - 04-12-2009, 07:42 PM
I've been installing OS X on a 8gb SSD via the guide located at http://www.vincechew.com/?p=183.
I'm having the same blue/grey screen hang after installing, rebooting. This is the series of events:
I install, get to the last bit ("about a minute remaining...") then I get the "Install Failed" message. Not a problem according to the guide.
Reboot with the DellMiniBoot123v8.02b1/syslinux usb drive to the SSD drive where OSX has been installed using ESC then 81.
Goes through startup process, gets to white/grey apple screen with swirling circle, then blue screen for a bit, then switches to a blue grey screen with the cursor in the top left, and hangs. I can move the cursor but that's it.
I'm using a retail 10.5.6 on a usb for the install, I've tried -x -f -v, and all combinations with a similar result.
