Hi Experts,

Now im really in a different world here, ive never setup a Mac OS and i seem to be getting a bit stuck.

I have as stated above a fairly new PC, i actually down scaled the PC (after reading a post online) because usually it has 8Gb RAM, an extra SATA controller for extra devices, an nVida 9600GT Video Card and a extra 1Tb hard disks drive.

I downloaded iBoot and it picks up the Mac Install DVD fine. The problem im having is after i switch the to the install DVD, i see the Mac logo come up and the busy cursor start spining but thats it. After about 3-4 minutes i get a error logo (like the no smoking sign).

Im pretty much stuck there, ive done a bios reset, loaded factory defaults but cant get any furhter.

Your help would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.
