I'm a newbie here, and i got a problem.

My computer is Acer aspire 4820G, and the Lion 10.7.3 (N{censored}12495) was flawlessly installed.

But when it reboot, it hangs on "NTFS volume, xxx" like the attach picture.

My computer specs as follow

CPU : intel i3-380M 2.53

GPU : AMD HD 6550M with Intel HD graphic

Ram : 2 x 2 GB DDR3 1333 MHz

Network : Atheros AR5B97 wireless + AR8151 PCI-E Ethernet

CD : Matshita DVD-Ram

How can i solve this problem?

Thanks for your help. :eagerness:

When you used disk utility to format the disk to install N{censored} did you format it Mac OS Journalled?? If you did not then OS X will not boot.

Example:

Lets say you have a 500 GB HDD with about 465 GB usable. Windows takes up 200 GB, the backup partition is about 15 GB leaving 250 unused. You want to use 100 GB for an OS X installation. Booting from the N{censored} DVD/USB drive you choose disk utility where you can partition the HDD. Disk utility will not allow you to partition just 100 GB of the HDD and format it OS X journalled. The choice will be greyed out. You can either format the entire drive or use a different HDD to install OS X onto.

When you have an entire drive to partition Mac Journalled make sure you choose the option tab below where it shows the entire drive...MAKE IT MASTER BOOT RECORD....NOT GUID!!!

wow! That's suppose to be the last part of the initialization of mac, after that you would be greeted with the welcome screen. Try booting again because mine was not booting up so well at first too. Try booting safe mode by adding "-x" to your boot flags or simply type hit enter when the chameleon screen came up, after that you would see both mac and win drive select the one with mac and type "-x" and hit enter to boot.

You should do like this during installation of N{censored} (back up all your data first):

1. open Disk Utilities

2. on the left panel choose your HARDDISK

3. on the right panel choose erase

4. on the format type choose: Mac OS Journaled

5. erase.

6. click tab partition

7. on the current, you can choose how much new partition to create

8. Partition for Installation MAC must be Mac OS Journaled, for other partition you can create as Mac journaled or FAT

9. On option, you check the partition scheme... chose MBR (Master Boot Record), if you want to dual with Win7 or triple with Linux.

10. Start the partition.... and install on your MAC partition.
