OSx installation fails Windows installation OK


When attempting to install OSX I get a circle with a slash, after sereral minutes. I have already tried different installation sources. (DVD, USB) No success.

However, I can install a Windows system!

No water damage, RAM and also the hard drive has been replaced.

Maybe someone can give me a tip?

You are trying to install an OS that wont work, either from a grey disk for a different Mac, or an earlier commercial version than OX 10.4.9 (what it shipped with) or later.

Also you'll need to re-partition the drive as Windows and Mac OS-X don't use the same boot block structure. You need to use GPT (GUID Partition Table)
