    Hello,

    Trying to install OS X from my USB Pen and I can't seem to get it to boot. I have formatted the USB Pen correctly, restored the disc image to the pen and added all the EFI/Boot loaders but when I try to boot I just get a flashing '_' at the top left of my Netbook screen.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Mark.

    Netbook? So you're doing this on a Hackintosh?

    Since the title is "Installing OS X from USB Pen" here is the response:

    Works perfectly fine on a real Mac. No need to hack or spend hours to try to figure it out.

    Because we don't talk about hackintosh on this forum. There are obvious forums for that, and this is not the proper place.

    You're behind the times. We talk about Hackintoshes now. Look for the big thread on it.
