Win7-OS X Dual Boot endless loop

Hello everyone, Im Mike, new to this forum. Im on here for only one reason, and im nbot sure weither to post it here or to a mac site well... I followed the instrustions to this site to the tee..How To: Dual Boot Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Windows 7 on a PC

Now I have the usb stick all set up perfectly and i know it works because it begins to boot. unfortunatly it does begin and says Darwin for a split second but then it resets to the HP logo and restarts again. I am able to switch the directory to boot from so my Win7 side is unaffected. But i cannot get the OSX side to start. ANY IDEAS? i have been able before i choose the boot site to have on the bottom like a comand prompt it seems like where it just says BOOT: and i can type what ever I like into it.

Hi Mike .... welcome to the forums .

Basically in this forums we discuss about windows installation and setup, and various problems thereto . As for as I know , Mac doesn't allow to install their OS on a hardware which is not made by them . Any attempt to do the otherwise is somehow illegal . That is why we try to not discuss about such issues here .

Google for some hackintosh forums ; I guess (not sure though) they can help you .
