Trying to boot the installation normally, I get it rebooting always after the apple logo.
 
Booting using: -x -v  gives the same problem.
 
Booting using: amd64 -v    gives me this error:   BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 no such file or directory
 
Booting using: amd64 -vx still give the same error 
 
If i use an external HDMI monitor;  it get stuck immediately after choosing to boot DVD.
 
I made sure every devices is unplugged from the laptop but still no luck.
 
Anyone?

Try to boot with GraphicsEnabler=No , xpcm-free -v , -s / combine them maybe

Or Google for bootdisk utility and macpwn , don't use distro ... Make the installer on 2 usb (1gb and 8gb) , it should work . If this doesn't work try with an iAtkos distro or google for your problem . Succes/Cheers :)
