    I want to install Mac 10.7 next to my Windows installation. Haven't got any luck so far, does anyone have some good resources about this? I don't have a Mac to use for formatting or so.

    You'll find all the info you need there, although you need very specific hardware to get everything working correctly.

    Hm that should be good, check out that graphics card although it seems like it's hanging loading on your sound driver. Are you booting with iatkos or something? Doesn't make any sense that VoodooHDA would be loading at a time like that

    I just managed to get through the last problem by entering safe mode, but now it's waiting for root device.

    Gonna try and remove unneeded drives then

    Didn't work

    I tried installing lion using iAtkos L2 on my netbook and it didn't work. Snow leopard using iAtkos S3 worked however.

    wowwee omg you're so dumb. Okay first of all you should REALLY look into this before starting to do it.

    Hard drive configuration needs to be in AHCI
    Your hard drives/optical drive needs to be SATA
    Set your USB boot device to be first in priority

    JEEZ

    Well then maybe you should have said so, knowledge is power and with things like this every little thing could be causing it to crash. If it's waiting for root device that means it can't find the thing that you're trying to boot off of so try different usb ports I guess?? I dunno mine booted straight so I would assume that maybe your usb stick either isn't formatted properly or something but for all I know you could be trying to boot off a dvd because you haven't told us anything.
