Install Guide 1: Help - 06-17-2009, 12:43 AM
I'm using Installation Guide 1: Guide Method 1 - Single USB Drive (Mac-only) | DellEFI | mechdrew
Small variation: I formatted the 8GB USB exactly as directed, created the OSXDVD partition and restored an image I had made of my retail OSX DVD to the USB. However, I did all this on my iBook G4 (none of this seemed intel specific and its the only mac I own). I then borrowed my friends Intel MacBook so that I could run DellEFIBootMaker on the USB to make the Boot Key.
On the Dell:
I followed the Bios setting directions and select to boot off the USB. At this point everything is fine and the bootloader comes up asking if I would like to boot my internal SSD or the OSXDVD partition. I, of course, select OSXDVD and then a bunch of text begins to scroll...and then it stops. At that point it just sits there and does nothing.
I've tried rebooting and running it again, but I get the same result.
