Boot freezes after installation

Question

Hi,

I see one person has posted the very same problem but, so as not to hijack his thread, I am starting a new thread to post my full specs etc. Hope that is okay.

My problem is this:

I've burnt the .dmg file of iAtkos L2 and use that to install directly on an HFS partition of my main hd. I get through the first part of the installation process fine, but when the system reboots I end up at the apple logo on the grey background with the spinning wheel. The wheel spins for about 5 minutes and then freezes...

Anyone got an idea on how to get past the freeze?

I am running a Samsung RC530, so:

CPU: Intel Core i7- 2630QM

Memory: 2GB (for installation purposes, normally 6GB)

Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M

Any help would be much appreciated :)

Thanks for the feedback noname :)

It still freezes, but at least I can see when it happens.

This is what I get with the different flags:

-v: the boot freezes at:

DSMOS has arrived
NTFS driver 3.0 [Flags: R/W].
NTFS volume name SYSTEM, version 3.1.
NTFS volume name , version 3.1.

-v -f: the boot freezes at:

DSMOS has arrived

-v -f GraphicsEnabler=No: freezes at:

DSMOS has arrived
NTFS driver 3.0 [Flags: R/W].
NTFS volume name SYSTEM, version 3.1.
NTFS volume name , version 3.1.

The partition I am installing on is HFS+, but my two windows partitions are NTFS, is that the problem??
