D620 Troubles

Before I start I'd like to make clear I'm a complete noob to hackintoshing and osx alike. I began trying to install Snow Leopard by burning a boot loader on a disk and installing OSX from an install disk. After finishing the install I chose the correct drivers in EDP and restarted the system. All seemed to be going fine until it stayed on the pinwheel during the restart. After a bunch of surfing around the forums here that the solution to my problem would be to install from a usb stick. So I downloaded the image and tried to restore it to my usb stick but I was given an error that it needs to be imagescanned so I tried to and it said it was unable to scan because of an invalid argument. So now I am at a loss, any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

 

If anyone needs to know, I've got broadcom wireless and Intel graphics.

 

Thanks in advance!

as for your first problem to see whats going on with the pinwheel boot in verbose mode in chameleon the option is -v it will run through some code and stop at an error but we also need more info. like your graphics and what version of osx your installing, if you can take a picture of the error in verbose where it stopped that would also help... you can also try -f -v combo and see it it goes further.

for the imagescan issue in disk utility select the image file, go to images tab and hit convert. save in a new location then try the imagescan from the new converted image. if still giving issues mount it and repair disk

I followed what you said about the .img file and it worked perfectly, I was able to restore it to my drive. Previously I was using osx without a graphics card so I held c and booted from the usb drive from chameleon but after the restart it became impossible to get back to osx. I had tried burning a boot loader to a cd and it refused to find that also. Any advice? Also, I'm running on Intel 945GM graphics.

I wasn't able to get it to boot that way but I did reinstall osx and not install the power pack and it survived the reboot. Now I've got the option to turn airport on in network preferences but when I hit it nothing happens, also the disk drive refuses to open in osx and I don't have the option to open it from the menu bar.
