it doesn't give me any options, all i see is the apple logo and the spinning wheel, also could i use a external hard drive to do 8gb pen method , i've tried 3 bootloaders already.

 

also i downloaded E.D.P how do i install it.

install edp to your install media then run the edptool.command in /Extra folder... build for your machine type.

 

how do i get it to power off , when i power it off my display goes blank but my power light is still on.also how do u get it to wake from sleep mode....thanks

check the wiki we keep common fixes there. have you updated the bios to the latest dell bios? also set your bios to default.

 

got that fixed , how do i reset the bios to default i'm trying to get my sleep to work,what do i need to press to wake it up from sleep.

set bios to defaults is a preference in the bios... look through it. did you follow the sleep method on the wiki i linked too?
